I've been using Jama and Germaine's 'A Piece of Ground' down in Punta Gorda Town in southern Belize as my base camp for that last few years. It's a clean hotel/hostel, convenient, affordable and tucked away at the back of PG. They have great food at 'A Piece of Chicken Restaurant and Bar' and the Belikin beer's are always cold....

The American "Jama" knows what a western tourist needs to feel at home during sunrise, lunch and sunset. The accommodations are extremely wonderful, a/c, hot water, great foods and clean. Need anything to get around? Jama knows!

I ended up booking this hostel on the hostel world app at Belize immigration because I didn't realise you needed to have proof of accommodation before you could cross the border (FYI, you need proof of 3 nights accommodation or onward journey when entering via boat from Guatemala!!). I needed to book something immediately so I could show my proof...

This will be one of my "few and far in between" reviews of any place I've ever stayed, and I've stayed ALOT of places. Been traveling a lot of years and only once or twice have I been compelled to comment in such favorable fashion about a place I've stayed at. I know, I'm bad. I've been tired. Anyway, as...

I have lost count of the number of times I have been here! The chicken burgers and fries are great, the place itself is really chilled with a pool table and other games to keep entertained. The view from the very top is nice. Two tips: 1) Allow time for the food to arrive as everything is cooked fresh. 2)...

This is a budget hotel off the beaten path in Punta Gorda. Rooms are small, but clean and with AC, TV's and wi fi is available. It is an easy walk to get to anywhere in PG. What makes this hotel extra special is Jama and Jermaine. They are so kind and helpful. They will go out of their way...

A great place to stay and relax on the south side of Punta Gorda. Clean room with a restaurant ( a Piece of Chicken) on top with pool table. Saw monkeys and a view of the sea from the top floor. Loved just relaxing on the top floor.
