Robert's Grove Beach Resort
Ranked #9 of 20 Hotels in Placencia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The grounds at Robert's Grove are very well tended. The staff was very accommodating. I do have a couple quibbles, however. The lock on our door was beyond fussy and needs to be replaced. We returned one day to have neatly folded laundry delivered inside our room. The basket of clothing was clearly labelled for the room next door, so I delivered it to the rightful owner. Also, since the resort is 4 miles from Placencia I was kind of counting on a golf cart rental. We were told that the ONE golf cart that is available for rental was already promised to another guest for the entire week. Plan on $10. U.S. for taxis to and from town. But really, this is a beautiful place to stay, and from what I heard from guests at Turtle Inn - it's a much better value.

Room Tip: The upper floor would offer a better view. The fountains run at night creating noise. Ask to be aw...

First time in Belize and Roberts Grove was the second place visited. Staff was extremely conscientious and helpful. They gave us drinks the moment we checked in....a wonderful and unexpected "welcoming" to their fine resort. My room was upgraded to a suite due to a booking issue....another unexpected treat! Arrangements for tours, use of golf cart to tour the area and the accessibility of sailing boats on their beach were all teriffic amenities. Thanksgiving feast on the beach was a favorite.....

No doubt you will have a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Buildings away from the beach area not as noisy. Suite didn't have a TV in the bedroom.

This is our third time at staying at this very special resort. The new owners have given attention to every detail including upgrading the three gorgeous swimming pools; restaurants have new chefs which cater to your every delight. Just ask and you shall receive. Robert's has 3 excellent restaurants. Each with their unique atmosphere. Entertainment is included throughout the week. The staff will go out of their way to make sure you are in heavenly bliss making sure you get what you need. All of the outings offered are a must to experience Belize. The dock is a wonderful place to relax, have a cocktail and lunch. All the ammenities are there to please--turn down service; toiletries; robes; extra towels. Included as well, are bicycles; hobbie cats and cayaks. Did not take advantage of the Spa. Next time!

An acquaintance recommended the Robert's Grove Restaurant and upon entering the lovely setting we had high hopes. We were seated right at beachside in at atmosphere of understated elegance. But....it was the worst meal we had in our entire Belize vacation, and the most expensive (though we would gladly have paid for a great meal.) The menu was lackluster in its creativity. But that would have been fine...

My husband had just learned about the local Belizean shrimp and wanted to try shrimp in its most straightforward preparation. Before ordering he asked how many shrimp would be included and was told "six." When it arrived with just four shrimp, the waiter explained that these were bigger than the usual shrimp so the dish only included four. That felt like a "bait and switch" and very stingy on their part.

My husband ordered a seafood platter that came with a plentiful serving of crab legs. But the meat in the crab legs was so overcooked and dried out that they were inedible. This was the most expensive item on the menu, too. I ordered ribs that arrived cold, just hunks of less than lukewarm pork slathered with barely warm sweet and sticky barbecue sauce. I left most of it on my plate.

We are generally not complainers but this was beyond bad. Also, because it was to be a special night out at a more elegant place than our usual casual choices, it was especially disappointing.

All that said, the staff was courteous and attentive--not their fault that the food was so bad!

Absolutely fantastic place to stay! From the time we arrived to the scenic resort until the departure, everything was amazingly perfect. Pictures do not even begin to do this place justice! We felt like we got a good taste of the wonderful culture during our stay at The Inn at Robert's Grove. The entire staff always greeted us with smiling faces and made us feel welcome. Anna went above an beyond to help make sure our group had everything we needed on every excursion we went on. Francisco, at the Dive shop, was also great. We were lucky enough to get to SCUBA dive with him a few days, and we felt like we got to see and learn so much. Ralfeal (?) was also fantastic, it felt like we were leaving new friends when he dropped us off at the airport. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who is thinking about visiting Belize. The food is marvelous, staff is courteous, and rooms are clean. Belize is an amazing country, and this resort made it that much better. I didn't want to leave! Just be prepared to be on "Belize" time for everything. It's such a laid back culture that is was tough getting used to not being in a microwave society like back home. I wish we were more like that! We will definitely be back!

This was our first time to Belize and it will not be our last. We stayed at the Robert Grove Resort for a few nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms were large and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The free breakfast was plenty of food. Did not have bad meal. Conch Fritters OMG! There is plenty to do at the resort. Siene Bight is a short walk away. Downtown Placencia is a short bike ride away. We rented a golf cart, but I think the bikes were faster. Overall, it was a fantastic stay.

Seven days of beautiful weather, great food, a wonderful and helpful staff...what else could I have asked for except seven more days! This was my second trip to Belize and by far the better one as Belize City is nice but Robert's Grove in Placencia was paradise. This is true especially in December. The staff made excursion trips easy and affordable, from snorkeling to shopping in downtown Placencia. My favorite...dining and dancing at the annual Mistletoe Ball to a local live band!
