“Unbelievable Picturesque Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stopped by this resort while we were visiting Placencia. By far the best picturesque bar we have been too! You walk out onto a dock and there is a full service bar with very comfortable lounge chairs to sun yourself. The Piña Coladas were awesome! Make sure to stop by and visit this slice of paradise.

Stayed in #11 Vista for 6 nights Jan 22 and totally enjoyed the view and RG experience. If you are looking for Cancun type activity you will not find it here or probably anywhere in Belize. This is more like Hawaii 50 years ago. Placencia is a small model of what Key West was way back then also. Food is excellent, rooms are clean, spacious, fans and air conditioning if needed works well.
Besides front porch or balcony there are many places to lounge both in and out of sun. Hobie cats are fun and bicycles come in handy. My only criticism is the location of the in-room safe as it is difficult to access. Free shuttle to local airport was an added plus I was not expecting.

Room Tip: Ground level had a good view. 2nd level ocean view is obstructed by mature trees.

We spent 11 days here for our 25th wedding anniversary and had an awesome experience! Louis picked us up at the airport and was very helpful and extremely friendly. He was a great resource for recommending restaurants and grocery stores. (My husband and I like to get away from the resort restaurants and eat where the "locals" eat).

Clifton - a resort worker - was always at the ready to check out bikes to us. We rode into Placencia every day - sometimes twice - a 4 mile ride, which is an easy ride and nice and flat.

The morning complimentary breakfast was plenty of food - typically offering a savory pastry, fresh baked bread, yogurt and fruit, along with juices and coffee. We only ate at the resort twice but would highly recommend the breakfast burrito at Habeneros! It was HUGE and very delish.

The rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly! The only "beef" we had was a lack of water - literally. Three times I went to shower and there was no water coming out of the tap. But, it's Belize, no problem. Belize has such a laid back atmosphere - VERY relaxing!

Some restaurants that are a must in Placencia: Secret Garden (must try the stacked ceviche), Omar's Creole Grub (freshest fish of many unusual types), and DeTach. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

First, remember you are in Central America and abandon your North American standards and you will thoroughly enjoy RG. Having said that, it offers all the amenities you need-restaurants, activities, good accommodation, and exceptional staff. Compared to other accommodation in the area, RG is head and shoulders above most. Placencia is a wee village of restaurants, bars, and rooms/cabins to rent. It doesn't take long too see all that it has to offer. RG offers bikes for guests which were the best way to see the area and explore. Take a tour to any of the ruins which is an awesome way to see the Cayo District and San Ignacio. St.Herman's Cave was spectacular-be brave and hike the entire mile underground! After the hike through the jungle back to the car you must stop at the inland Blue Hole to wash off the mud and sweat. Ask for Juan as your guide! All staff at RG are incredibly attentive. We had a 1 bdrm villa in building E overlooking the middle pool(upper floor). Everything was great and I can't really find fault with it.

For our first time out of the country, my wife and I didn't know what to expect. After searching forever, we decided on Robert's Grove. I don't think it would have been possible to pick a better place. Literally everything was better than we expected, especially our tour guide Ralfi. This place comes highly recommended to anyone looking for a PERFECT Caribbean vacation.

We chose this resort upon the recommendation of our travel agent (Belize Tradewinds) and they did not steer us wrong. We did look at some other
places in the area as well. Since this week it was just my husband and I, we chose just a room rather the one or two bedrooms we try to get when the kids come with us. It was a very spacious room with a king bed, chairs and a futon style couch. We had a porch with table, chairs and swing. The beach is very nice with chairs and a walk out dock sunning areas and a bar. 3 swimming pools that are all very nice. 3 different restaurants that each have a different style of menu and experience. Don't miss the paella at Habenero's! We are very satisfied with the level of service we have received. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Staff comes around into the evening to see if you need fresh towels and even bring chocolate. We would recommend and are planning to return.

We returned for dinner in January 2014 after a fantastic New Years dinner a year ago. Again we were IMPRESSED! In a beautiful interior (outside seating is available) we enjoyed the ambiance, courteous servers and timely but not hurried service. I had a delicious lobster "as you like it" and my dining partner had a spectacular lobster (yes topped with nice tail) salad with fresh fruits and veggies topped with a heavenly vinaigrette dressing. The price was very reasonable. We were staying in the village but it was but a 15 ride in a golf cart away. In one word: Fantastic!!
