What a lovely experience at the Maya Beach Hotel! The room was clean and well equipped, the property was beautiful and well positioned. The staff was very helpful and the food at the on site restaurant is the best we had in Belize during out two week trip!

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

Maya Beach Hotel was a great stay for a couple on an anniversary vacation. The beach was clean and picturesque. We had a room with a kitchenette and it had all we needed for simple small meals. The bathroom was large and clean and the pool was a perfect addition for the stay. The food at the Hotel restaurant was... More

Ate at the restaurant several times, including their happy hour (3-5). Good food and drinks, and restaurant patrons can use pool, beach and the pier. Like all of Placencia, the ocean water is brownish for the 30 yards or so.

It is a great room, small kitchenette w/small fridge, small range and sink. It also comes with all your kitchen gear and also 5... More

Very scenic beach front with free kayaks that you can rent. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment. The AC was nice and cold and the restrooms were clean and bright. Only complaint is that the water runs hot and cold if both showers are being used at the same time. Sometimes you can hear maintenance on the main building at... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The view from our room (the Dreamsicle) was absolutely beautiful. We had our own pool and just a few feet beyond was the ocean. Their restaurant, the Maya Bistro, was excellent, especially the local breakfast options. We enjoyed wine on the beach, relaxing and reading, letting my daughter play in the sand, and the... 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
