My wife Cate and I stayed at Maya Beach Hotel for a week. I was a Chef for my adult life and owned my own a top Wisconsin restaurant for 15 years. Maya beach is one of those jewels that you hope to find when you travel. One of the giveaways that you have hit a great restaurant is when the salad and bread arrives. SOOOOOO fresh was the salad and the homemade french bread that we knew we picked a winner. I must admit we tried another restaurant one night. Big mistake. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner and Maya beach for the extent of our stay and never became bored with the food. Breakfast is great because they get their eggs for a local farmer as they do with the produce. The fish is bought daily from local fishermen. The shrimp is farm raised in Belize. Chef Johns menu is creative yet simple. The desserts are irresistible. Dark chocolate souffle, Killer Key lime pie, Peanut brittle ice cream pie, and the list goes on. The service staff becomes like family after just a few days. Make sure you try the spicy breakfast potatoes with two perfectly poached eggs, for lunch try the fresh fish sandwich, dinner the nut encrusted red snapper is a must. John also has feature entrees nightly. There is also a tasty bar menu for a lighter dinner choice. Just remember if you venture outside the hotel for dining you will wish you didn't.
