We had a wonderful time in Placencia and Los Porticos Villas was the icing on the cake. The location was perfect. Just outside of the village but close enough to be anywhere in 10 minutes or less on our golf cart. We stayed in an ocean front villa and the view was amazing. The sound of the waves put us to sleep every night. The staff at Los Porticos were so kind and helpful. Gayone arranged all of our tours, made dinner reservations and booked massage appointments. We couldn't have asked for a better,relaxing vacation. Make sure to get gelato at Tutti Frutti and eat dinner at Maya Beach Bistro. Ask for the Peanut Brittle Pie. Its amazing! Even though all the restaurants had great food, these were our favorites. We stayed 10 days and it was not enough. We will definitely be returning to Placencia and staying again at Los Porticos Villas.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment suite with a full kitchen, washer / dryer that was right on the beach (literally 20ft from the front door to the ocean). The units are clean, bright and the garden / pool area is immaculate for resting in the sun while on the beach or by the pool. No doubt this is a very quiet resort - so if you're looking for late night parties and large crowds this is not the place to be. If gorgeous beachfront views, quiet, relaxation by the pool / beach and snorkelling right off your front door are your idea of relaxation - then this is a great choice. Placencia is pretty quiet as a whole and the fact that there are no chain stores or restaurants to be found is a huge plus in my books. My only advice for this property is to come prepared to rent a golf cart to zip you into town as the 25 min walk in the heat of the day is intense and the golf cart makes it a quick, breezy and simple trip. There are tonnes of great places to each, Tipsy Tuna for drinks on the beach, Da Tatch for beachfront dining, Barefoot Bar for the best cold drinks and you have to make the Tutti Fruiti gelato store part of your daily routine - it's some of the best gelato on the planet hands down. I can't recommend this area enough but be prepared for quiet, more quiet and more quiet as the charm of this town hasn't been wrecked by over commercialization.

We came to Belize in March it was an awesome place. The staff were amazing everyone was so friendly. Gayone was the most appreciated she took care of every thing we wanted. The only draw back to staying at Los Portico was you needed a gulf cart the walk was nice but long and not practical when caring back groceries and the taxi was 5.00 per person there was 6 of us so that was not a good opinion to go to town a couple of times and the gulf cart was 50.00 a day. We went with that. We loved the tours Gayone set up except the Ruins we went to the one with the chocolate tour, the chocolate tour was good but the Ruins were very disappointing. We also did snorkeling with Ivan and Monkey river these were great, Ivan was awesome. We did cave rafting and zip lining they also were great. All in All at GREAT time was had by all. I even survived the trip 5 teen aged children I'm way too old for that.

Room Tip: They all seem to be great rooms. Very quite location

We stayed here on a dive trip in April and it was great. Five of us fit very comfortably in a 2-bedroom villa as it had 3 bathrooms, a huge living room, big balcony, and a nice kitchen. Located directly on the beach with a nice pool and swim up bar. Not too far from the restaurants in Placencia either.

Room Tip: Ocean Front villas are worth it!

When we arrived we were greeted by Gayone and she had our luggage taken to our rooms while we finalized formalities. Once escorted to our villa (2D) we were overwhelmed to see that the staff had arranged flower petals on the bed in a heart shape with a "25" and a chilled bottle of Champagne to boot! What a considerate special start to our 25th anniversary celebration!
The grounds were very well kept, an absolutely amazing Caribbean view and a nice quiet beach area. We were furnished with a local cell phone which came in handy calling taxis etc. We had no problems with housekeeping, Tisbie was a blessing and cleaned at least 4 times during our stay. Gayone and Karissa at the front office kept us busy booking trips for us to snorkel, fish and even inland trips to Mayan ruins and a small cocoa producer (Yum!) Stoney, the pool bartender served up some unique pina coladas and the "stony special" is smooth with a good kick! Our boat trips came right onto the beach at Los Porticos to pick us up. Pool was great and our kitchen was well equipped. 2D had wireless internet so I could finish some business every now and then when I had to. Being a mile or so out of town was nice as it was quiet, the only noise was the waves. We walked several times to burn off all the great food in Placencia! The villa was a 2 bedroom and very spacious. If two couples were to split the nightly fee, it would be an incredible bargain! Each bedroom has its own full bath so even with two couples it would be very private when you want. It was a great stay and we are very happy!

I stayed at Los Porticos this past March as part of a group of 25-30 year olds. We had an absolutely wonderful time and the management and staff at Los Porticos was extremely friendly and accomodating. The villas themselves are all beautiful (our group was spread across three different ones. The pool bar was a great place to relax and socialize during the day and the bartender was wonderful and very helpful with giving our group tips about where to go for dinner and drinks in the area.

The area itself is right on a beautiful part of the beach and conveniently located either a very short cab ride from town or, otherwise, it's a nice walk along either the road or the town to get into the restaurants.

I definitely recommend Los Porticos to any one who is interested!

My husband and I sadly left a brief but excellent stay at Los Porticos Villas in Placencia. The place exceeded our expectations. The grounds were beautiful, colorfully landscaped, and perfectly maintained. The pool is immaculate and inviting. The beach is the best beach we've experienced in Belize. Lots of soft sand, clear water with sandy bottom. Management is to be complimented on outstanding maintenance of the property from the entrance to the grounds to the beach, as well as the condo itelf.

Los Porticos does not have a restaurant, but it has a fully-equipped modern kitchen and many nearby eating options. The location is excellent. Just a short drive to the village where you find grocery stores, restaurants, bars, shops. It's small but charming. We had an unusually good and large burrito lunch at Tipsy Tuna's, an excellent watering hole decorated with entertaining signs, and a good valued dinner at Rumfish. In a tiny area, you can find inexpensive Belize price dining options or moderate to upper scale restaurants, all less expensive than area hotel options.

Barry and his office staff are very friendly, informative and helpful with suggestions.

Los Porticos is an excellent choice for independent travelers seeking quality, comfort, excellent beach and pool, but not expecting other hotel amenities onsite. Our unit 6C could easily serve as our home for any length of time. The rooms are spacious, comfortably decorated, fully-equipped, even washer and dryer, ironing board, iron, cable tv, wifi, wonderful kitchen, oversized tiled master bathroom and second bathroom, two bedrooms, huge terrace accessible via living room or master bedroom.

We are Belizean hoteliers and look forward to future opportunities to return to this wonderful oasis for occasional R&R. We also intend to recommend it to our guests seeking this type of destination for relaxation and low-key activities. Barry can recommend various tour operators for land and sea excursions.

Thanks for your hospitality! See you again.

Room Tip: Some guests might prefer a unit right on the beach but we were very happy with Villa 6C, a spacious...
