Just returned from our first trip to Belize. We had a wonderful trip and just wanted to let others know that the Green Parrot is the place to stay. We relied on TA and the internet to pick the location, and we were very pleased with our selection. As stated the property is right on the Caribbean. They have a great white sand beach, which we found good for swimming and just relaxing on a beach chair for some reading. The housing units are each a separate unit, which provides one with privacy. They were cleaned daily and were quite comfortable.
I think what we like the most was the high level of service that all of the staff provided. Leo the manager was just great and set up all the tours we wanted to take. Nicole did a fine job for us at the bar and Holie is a nice young lady that serves the morning breakfast.
We also had the opportunity to meet David and Linda, they are very nice and were fun to talk with. We also met a great group of people from Romania - what a lot of fun they were. Actually the environment is such that everyone gets to know each other by the time you leave. We will definitely become a member of their repeat guest program. Job well done!

Room Tip: We had a thatched roof housing unit - it was very close to the water. The tropical shower is fun!

I want to thank David and Linda for an amazing stay at their beach house. We really wanted to get off the grid and have a true tropical experience. It was everything and more. You can completely relax, swim, kayak, bike ride , eat , drink, lay in a hammock, walk on the beach, and let the stress melt off of you. We loved the Green Parrot because it was beautiful, everyone was so nice yet they left us alone to relax. Other places we have stayed tried to sell us trips and constantly talk to us but here you can just chill but if you need anything David or Linda or Leo is there to help. I miss it already so much….waking up to the beautiful thatched roof and the sound of the water and palm trees in the breeze. I will treasure my stay at the Green Parrot forever. And we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: ask for the room furthest from restaurant

"Most relaxing place on earth" - now those are very kind comments. We so enjoyed meeting you and having you stay with us at the Green Parrot. Our goal is to make every visitor feel welcome. We also want the guest to set their own pace. So if your goal is to just relax and get away from it all - we want to make sure we create that type of environment for you. Remember the next time the stress level gets too high - just come on back to the Green Parrot. You are now a member of our repeat guest program, so you will be entitled to a little bit of a discount on your accommodations. Until then, safe travels.

We stayed overnight here before we left on a TradeWinds cruise that left from Robert's Grove. What a lovely place this is! We stayed in a hut that was spacious, clean and had a beautiful view of the beach. I did not want to leave. The restaurant that is on site is a little pricey but the food was great and the staff was also. The beach was clean and the grounds well taken care of. We really enjoyed our night and look forward to returning here.

I booked to stay for 6 nights last February and had to cancel at short notice. I said I was happy to lose my deposit if they could not fill the room but was delighted that the amount was refunded in full without complaint - honest and honourable service.
In fact the service up until that point had been extremely helpful and friendly and i hope I can make it to Belize and stay here in the future - it sounds wonderful!

Thanks for taking time to write a review about how you were treated. We do have a policy regarding refunds. When someone is honest with us about their problems we try to work with them. Frequently, we apply monies to a future stay or make some other accommodation. When people lie to us and then make threats to write negative reviews about our business we will not be so understanding. Sorry that your visit did not work out this time. If you should be coming this way in the future, we would be pleased to work with you on your travel plans.

My wife and I stayed in the Parrot bungalow for our delayed honeymoon. We absolutely loved it! We were feet away from the ocean and everything was so perfect the week we were there we didn't want to leave. Nicole, Cameron, Haley, and the rest of the team were so friendly and helpful. Leo, the manager, was so knowledgeable about the peninsula and in putting together adventures. We have a few other countries on the short list to visit but when we make it back to Belize we won't hesitate to stay here again!

Room Tip: We got a thatched roof cabana and would certainly get one again

First we would like to thank you for selecting the Green Parrot for the location for your delayed honeymoon. Linda and I were pleased to have the opportunity to meet you during your stay. Thanks for the kind comments about our staff. They all try hard to make sure that each guest has a memorable experience. It makes us feel like we are doing the right thing when guests like yourself say that they "won't hesitate to stay here again!" That sure does make the staff feel good. So now your are a part of our Repeat Guest Program. Come on back one day. Until then, may you both have safe travels.

We arrived at the Green Parrot after a very long day of driving from the Mexican border. When we arrived we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady, Helin (?) and one of the grounds keepers and taken immediately to our cabin.

I admit, we were a bit apprehensive of the open air beach style cabins at first, we tend to lean towards air conditioned accommodations, but as we settled in found them to be perfectly comfortable and the location on Maya Beach can not possibly be beat! A few minutes swinging in a hammock in the shade listening to the Caribbean Sea is all I needed to decompress.

The grounds were impeccably maintained. Rafts, kayaks and canoes were all readily available and the stretch of beach the hotel is a perfect hideaway from whatever's going on back home. The food was excellent at the restaurant and the drinks were fine. The wifi signal was great and we had no problems being as "connected" as we wanted to be.

Here's the magic: The staff was truly remarkable!

Helin, the young lady who greeted us on arrival made sure we were happy with our room, gave us the complete briefing on the property and its features and amenities. She seemed very interested in us as a family, walked with my young daughters (4 and 5) and gave us some most excellent advice about what to do in Placencia - for example, I'd have to agree that the ice cream shop she recommended was indeed the best in all of Belize! She took great care of us at breakfast and communicated clearly to ensure we were satisfied with our stay.

Leo, the manager, was so very helpful. He is laid back, approachable and genuinely wants to help make his guest's experience a great one. He can arrange just about anything you want to do - JUST ASK! He introduced my daughters to his dogs and from then on they were all best buddies.

Perhaps the unsung hero at the Green Parrot is the groundskeeper who initially helped us with our luggage when we arrived. Forgive me, I think his name was either Eduardo or Ernesto, (I've traveled too many miles in the last couple of weeks) but he was truly special. We tend to be very involved in sharing new experiences with our daughters and we were trying the almonds, coconuts and cocoplums growing on the property. Without the right tools, all of this can be a bit difficult! He saw what we were doing and showed us which fruits were ready and how to eat them all! He grabbed some coconuts and in very short order came back with them all opened up and ready to enjoy! He helped us crack open the almonds (after we were done eating the fruit on the outside), too. He really enjoyed showing us what was available and my daughters had an incredible learning experience because of his perfect gesture. He was always there... when a hammock was too high for one of the girls to get into, he was there to lower it without being asked. He blew up a water raft he thought the girls would enjoy in the water and brought the pumice and sea shell collection they had amassed on the dock back to our cabin's porch when they had forgotten them. He's a special guy. Please thank him again for us; I think it's important that people know when they've had a truly positive impact on others in ways they might not fully appreciate.

Room Tip: Try to get as much distance from the road as they have available. Close your bathroom windows when t...

We just want to say thank you for staying with us at the Green Parrot. We also want to say thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay. You really impressed me in the way that you commented about the hard work of our staff. We have had reviewers that said the groundskeeper didn't look happy (not sure how they can tell?). But you went to the effort to learn Ernesto's name and how he helped make your experience enjoyable. We try to learn all of our guest's names, but you did us one better - you took time to learn the names of the staff. This makes them feel special. Knowing that our morning server (Halie) took the time to engage with your young daughters is very kind for you to mention. That way they learn a little about each other. And you are right about Leo - Mr. Laidback and helpful. Like you say - all you need to do is ask. Thanks again for your business, your comments and your support. You sure made our day - and we hope we helped in some small way to make your trip memorable.
