“The only way to decompress”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Staying at Los Porticos is a no brainer. We would do it again in a heart beat. I never had to worry or stress about anything. Gayone made sure our flights and taxi service were taken care of in advance. Even though we arrived on an earlier flight transportation to Los Porticos was waiting at the Placentia Airport. Absolute world class service even booking fishing trips, private island tours, snorkeling and birding on the Monkey River. The villa was top notch and right on the beach. It could not have been more perfect. It felt like home away from home.

This was my second trip to Los Porticos. I've stayed in unit 8D both times. Every single window looks out over the water with a 270 degree ocean view. Honestly I've never seen a place with such an incredible ocean view from everywhere! If you go definitely try to get 8D! I can't tell you how incredible it is. Seriously. It was clean, and comfortable.

The bathrooms are giant. They have his and hers sinks in both the master ensuite and the guest ensuite. Both have oversized showers that you could probably fit 10 people in. Beds and pillows are super comfortable.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and is stocked with dishes and dishwasher and all your typical kitchen appliances. So beautiful.

Another perk of unit 8D is that the owners of this particular unit have two bikes for you to use anytime! Which you definitely will want to go into town for dinner (its about 3 or 4 km).

Placencia has awesome places to eat. There are a tonne of awesome restaurants and pubs in the town. The scuba diving is amazing around there too. I totally recommend Avadon divers for scuba (its right across the street and they are one of the best dive outfits I've ever seen).

Los Porticos is gorgeous. Private beach, private pool, beautiful garden. It really is paradise.

Room Tip: 8D!!!!! I can't recommend this unit enough. It's got everything you could ever want and bett...

What a great Thanksgiving Holiday in Palcenia, Belize with my four children. We rented an amazing villa right on the ocean. This property is conveniently located, you have the privacy of your own private beach and pool, yet very near the quint village of Palcenia. The 2 bedroom villa was all we could ask for, well decorated, very spacious, with all the comforts of home. The resort staff was very helpful with information about the area, setting up tours, and recommending the best local restaurants. I will definitely go back to this amazing property.

Just about to travel back to Los Porticos for the second time in two years. My friends and I stayed in unit 8D a second floor villa that was closest to the ocean. The unit was both spacious and beautifully upgraded. We had 2 full bathrooms with walk in showers and even a jacuzzi tub in the master plus we had a half bath. We had two balconies, a smaller one off the master and a main balcony which was massive. Both overlooked the ocean. This unit can sleep 7 (2 bedrooms, a pull out couch and a cot). We slept 6 and felt like we had lots of room. Did I mention that the ocean was 15 steps from our door? We snorkeled right off the beach and saw starfish, coral and an array of colorful fish of various sizes. We traveled last April and the resort was not too busy which was nice. The town of Placentia is quaint but has many delicious places to dine. With our unit we also had access to 2 bikes which was nice because you can get to town quicker. Overall I totally recommend Los Porticos Villas and especially unit 8D.

Room Tip: The units closest to the ocean like the one we stayed in (8D) have the best view and are the most pe...

Stayed at Los Porticos for 5 days in November in 7C. Excellent view, excellent staff, and excellent amenities. Rooms were spacious and clean. Showers were unexpectedly large and elegant. Had a great time and Gayonne was very helpful from start to finish. Would recommend to others and will return!!! 5 stars ladies and gentlemen.

Room Tip: 7C has the best ocean view of any place I've stayed, the beach and water are beautiful!

Amazing trip to Belize! Our room was spacious and well equipped. As we travelled in the low season, we felt like the only people at the resort. We booked through vrbo and were contacted by Gayone. She arranged our Tropic Air travel from Belize City, met us on arrival, oriented us to our condo and offered us day trips. Gayone was focused on helping us to enjoy the best experiences available in Belize! Thanks Gayone for your special attention!! Los Porticos is a short bike ride to town and has a beautiful beach and pool area. This relaxing paradise was exactly what we were looking for after our busy and stressful summer!

Room Tip: 5A is a spacious 1 bedroom. Comes with 2 bicycles. 1 and 8 are the buildings closest to the beach. Q...

Returned from my second fabulous trip to Placencia this past winter. Absolutely fell in love with unit 7C at Los Porticos. This second floor unit has stunning ocean and pool views and is unique with custom Belizian art work. Watched incredible sunrises from the over 550 sq foot deck that is beautifully furnished with lounge chairs and outdoor dinning set. This unit gets sun from morning until sunset and is perfect for suntanning or relaxing on the deck. Only steps away from the gorgeous private beach and luxurious pool with swim-up bar with no shortage of beach or poolside chairs. There were days when we were the only people at the beach. This is truly living the dream!!! Situated next to the Turtle Inn and only a 25 min walk to the village along a stunning beach with many island/keys to see, this area is perfection! This unit has two master suites with full en-suite bathrooms, a pull out sofa bed and fold-up bed, full kitchen and in suite laundry. Free Wifi and satellite tv. Perfect for extended family stays. Booking a massage with Patricia is a must. In town, The Shak Beach Cafe serves fantastic smoothies, great for breakfast or lunch. Higher Ground has great coffee and atmosphere as well as free wi-fi. The Secret Garden is a must for gourmet dining. Rum Fish has amazing daily specials. For lunch try the picturesque Cozy Corner restaurant right on the beach, Pirates Grill, or Yoli's. Endless variety of activities, swimming, snorkelling, scuba or adventure tours that can be coordinated through Barry or Val. I can't wait to go back! Los Porticos Villas is our new second home and we will always request unit 7C. Here is the Youtube video for 7C: http://youtube.com/watch?v=No1zOKZuz2c

Room Tip: Unit 7C is unique for its amazing local artwork!
