The people and the experience here were awesome. We stayed in the Dreamsicle studio and couldnt have been more happy with our experience. We were here during the off season so things were very quiet except at dinner when the restaurant filled up. The staff were always super helpful and we booked multiple tours through the hotel. The front desk...

It also has what is...

Second time visiting Placencia and this resort is really amazing. Gorgeous views, comfortable rooms, amazing food. Smiling and friendly staff every step of the way. The perfect way to melt your stress away. The breakfast burger is a must try but you'll find a huge variety of tasty options!

Staying here was definitely a highlight of my trip to Belize. I had an individual cozy bungalow right on the beach and fresh flowers on the bed. We went snorkeling off the pier with the provided equipment immediately after dropping off our things. The water was perfect and the breeze was heavenly. It was not over crowded so we had...
