AA private secluded seafront resort on Maya Beach...with beautiful Placencia Lagoon nearby! "...Singing Sands is an oasis for the traveler...whether couples seeking a romantic space, groups in search of a base location...or birding enthusiasts and water lovers needing a place from which to begin...their Belizean adventure." Our Inn is tucked within a beautifully landscaped tropical garden, providing a restful environment for our guests. We take pleasure in providing a relaxed, at home atmosphere. We’ve been working hard in recent months to completely renovate and remodel our entire property.

This property is well managed and well maintained. The grounds and restaurant are all clean and very pretty. It's a nice quiet place to spend some time. You need to be aware of the distance from Placencia village if you are looking for more 'action'. We rode the free bikes into

Thank you for staying with us and your sincere review. We appreciate your thoughts on the grounds and restaurant. we are located in a quiet area but there are numerous options for transport to the village if needed. I'm glad you took advantage of the complimentary kayaks and bicycles. The bathroom in the Double Garden Flat is unique but I appreciate your comments regarding the openness of the bathroom and we will take steps to remedy. We hope to see you again if your travels bring you to the Placencia area again. Michael Kramer Owner

Our group of 6 loved our stay at Singing Sands! The food and service were amazing, and you can’t beat waking up in a cabana on the beach! We enjoyed spending time at the pool and beach during the day, and that we could catch a bus to Placencia just across the street for $2.

Great stay: very friendly staff (& Basenji), clean bungalows, beach, pier, good restaurant /drinks. Quiet, north end of penninsula [catch a local $2 bus each hour to town, for a 10 min. ride]. Would certainly go back again.

Seaside and Seaview cabanas.
View from the porch on our cabana.
Wonderful bungalow rooms. We slept really well under the thatched roofs!
Good day and thank you for contacting us. You can either travel by bus or domestic flight from PG to Placencia if you don't have a rental car. The highway from the resort to the BZE airport is paved and easily traveled. Private shuttles are available. Late December has excellent weather with low humidity and typically temps in the low 80's. A/C is not necessary but we do have a room with A/C available. You can book direct through our Singing Sands web site. Michael Kramer Owner

No, it's very quiet. The restaurant plays soft music but can't hear it in rooms.

How close is this to the village?
About 4 miles, we rented a car at Belize City. They have a golf cart you can rent or bycicles. Talk to Maya about it.

"cabanas 1 or 2 are the best"
"Nearer to the sea has better breezes"
"Ask for seafront if available. However no rooms are very far from the beach."
"If you are going in middle of summer pick the AC rooms, otherwise the other rooms have better views."
"Cabana #1 is off by itself a little - maybe that's great for honeymooners. They're all identical and great!"
$92 - $176 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
