We were blown away by the family feel the Maya Beach Hotel had. The owners made it a point to meet as many people as they could, and could be found nightly in the restaurant. The rooms were comfortable, and the beach is absolutely stunning. The food in the restaurant was the best we had in town, and it was... More

Recommended by friends, I had no real idea where it was until we actually got there. What a pleasant surprise. Everyday something new to do and see. I have been to Belize a number of times and was finally able to take my son. We had a blast together! I had some locals and friends come to visit and all... More

This is a real find -- beautiful setting, wonderful staff, and friendly owners. We stayed in King Tide, which is a separate cottage, set back a little, but still with a direct view of the ocean and only steps away. The rooms are clean and modern -- anything we couldn't find in our room, the staff found for us immediately.... More

Just returned from a great 10 day trip to Placencia where we stayed at the Maya Beach Hotel. We've stayed at a lot of Caribbean hotels and this was by far the best overall experience. Not a luxury resort but just the most pleasant atmosphere, friendly helpful staff, a clean upgraded suite on the beach with a great view, and... More

Great people and great location. The staff at the hotel constantly went above and beyond all my expectations for an amazing vacation. Tracey and Marlon are amazing. By the first evening, everyone at the hotel knew our name and were constantly checking in to make sure we were having an amazing vacation! The house was spacious and well equipped for... More

I've been all around the world, but Maya Beach has to be the best customer service I've ever experienced. If you run into any issues with your travel, just be patient and let them see what they can do for you. Chances are, the staff will go above and beyond to accommodate your situation. The food in their restaurant was... More

Wonderful time at this resort. The rooms are clean and above average. The people at check in , like Marlin, do a great job. The restaurant is a real Kem. The chef had daily specials and runs a great business. Her staff, like Becky and Cedric, are characters yet professional. Stay here!

We stayed for 11 days in the King Conch cabana at the Maya Beach Hotel. It was an incredible experience. The lodging was comfortable with air conditioning, soft sheets and good pillows, kitchenette with the utensils needed, and a million-dollar view through the coconut palms and sea almond trees to the Caribbean lapping at the shore close by. The hammocks... More

We spent the second part of our honeymoon at the Maya Beach hotel in the King Conch cabana. It was absolutely perfect after many days in the sweaty jungle to stay in an air conditioned room. The room came equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, cook top, blender and toaster. They will also do your laundry for 5US, which was a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a small mid-range beach resort for couples who need comfort, but not luxury. Our hotel rooms are air conditioned with king or queen beds and nice beach views, and we also offer some beach house rentals in different price ranges. Our Bistro and swimming pool are a gathering place at the end of a day filled with snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, jungle hiking, spelunking, climbing Maya ruins, or just plain relaxing on the beach. The restaurant was also has also been awarded "Restaurant of the Year" twice by the Belize Tourism Board, and it remains a highlight of a stay here. ... more   less
