Nirvana pays attention to the little as well as the big details. They have soap dispenser in shower and sink area, drinking water filter, free WiFi, and every morning a free breakfast on the covered rooftop (What a view). You also have the option of free room service. You walk off the porch and the beach is right there. A couple of kayaks are provided if you want to enjoy a leisurely paddle along the shore. Many of the restaurants in the area, as well a good sized grocery store are within walking distance.

This property is outstanding. Barbara and Evan are amazing people. Their staff provides excellent service. We loved the proximity to the beach,restaurants,supermarket and airport. The breakfast was delicious. This is our 3rd visit and will definitely return more often. Looking forward to our next vacation in April 2023. We so miss Belize.

This was my first visit to Belize and it was an amazing experience. My friend and I loved our accommodations at A Belizean Nirvana . We had plenty of room to stretch out in our 1-bedroom unit with foldout futon bed in the living room. The full-sized fridge in the kitchenette was great for storing cold drinks and leftovers. The staff led by manager Carolyn were all extremely helpful and friendly. The location was perfect - just steps from the beach and only a few minutes walk to nearby restaurants, bars, and shops. If you are lucky enough to visit Placencia, the Nirvana is the place to stay.

We stayed in the Namaste suite with our 2 boys (10 and 13). The suite was amazing with beautiful ocean views and relaxing hammocks. Breakfast each day featured delicious Belizean food - with no 2 days the same. It was wonderful! As a short-term rental host myself, we were definitely impressed with Carolyn and her team. They have hospitality perfected! The location of the hotel itself was ideally situated in the heart of Placencia town. We were able to walk everywhere within the small village, which was awesome, as our kids could explore a bit on their own. We would definitely recommend staying at Belizean Nirvana to anyone visiting Placencia.

 What a great experience; this place is a piece of paradise. It is right on the Beach  The service was excellent; from the time the reservation was made, Barbara contacted us to arrange travel between Belize City and Placencia.  Transportation was provided to and from the Placencia Airport.  The room was clean and relaxing, Airconditioning, WIFI, Microwave and every amenity a guest could want.  The staff was polite and helpful; Breakfast is served on the Roof.  It was my birthday, so Barbara arranged a private dinner for us with a Birthday Cake.  We needed to leave early at 6:00 am for a Fishing Trip; our breakfast was provided the evening before.  Local Restaurants and shops are all within walking distance.

We love our stay and highly recommend. Excellent beachfront property, wonderful staff, good breakfast included, and great location close to restaurants/bars, shopping, and the village. We had a welcome rum punch when we arrived. Our studio is spacious and enjoyed the ocean view. The kitchen has the necessary appliance and we’ll equipped. We had to leave on an early diving excursion so we couldn’t make the scheduled breakfast from 8:30 am - 9:30 am. They provided us with our breakfast which included cinnamon rolls, cheese with toast, and orange juice the night before. So thoughtful and sweet.

I recently returned from a 2 week stay at A Belizean Nirvana. I stayed in the Morning Glory room on the 2nd floor with a beautiful view of the water. Every room faces out to the Caribbean for a FULL view. Here you can wake up in the morning, walk out onto the balcony for a stunning view of the sun rising over the ocean. The room was immaculate, wood floors, tiled bathroom, beautiful fixtures and everything you need in the kitchenette. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful for anything you need. Delicious breakfasts are served daily on the rooftop with a nice selection. Fresh ripe fruits available everyday. The entire hotel is very clean and quiet. This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever experienced! They offer transportation to & from the Placencia airport, will book a flight to/from Belize City (if needed) as well as schedule an exit Covid test that can be performed on-site. The hotel is centrally located with restaurants, shops & tours all within walking distance. Listen to the waves as you enjoy lounging on the private beach. Beautifully landscaped with outdoor showers to rinse off the sand. I highly recommend A Belizean Nirvana! Every detail was above & beyond my expectations.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the Hibiscus room. We really appreciated the quiet AC, and how quiet the building was overall - you could hardly hear the other guests above or next door. The bed was also extremely comfortable, which I almost never find the case while traveling! Since we normally stay in Airbnbs, we also really appreciated the housekeeping and transportation to and from the airport. The wi-fi was reliable and fast, and the shower was hot with good pressure. The only downsides were things out of control of the owners and staff, such as other guests smoking on the beach in front of our room.

This is the most comfortable place to stay! We loved the separate bedroom, the kitchenette, and the roominess of the living room area and the balcony. It was so nice that there were signs telling how to use the shower, TV, etc. The hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating. They picked us up from another resort and dropped us off at the airport. Breakfast was good. I would stay here again for sure when coming to Placencia.
