“Maya Beach Hotel is the perfect place to vacation!!!!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2010

It was the first time my husband & I vacationed out of the country & we could not have chosen a better place. The hotel is exactly what the website says. We stayed in the Toucan room & it was very roomy, lots of space for all our snorkel gear, etc. the view was beautifull, sunrises gorgeous, & the beds were comfortable & they were CLEAN!!! No bugs or fear of walking barefoot!!! Walk down the stairs right onto the beach. the beach was private, offered shade & beautifull dock with a great swing at the end. the Swing was my favorite while my husband loved the hamocks. they have bikes & canoes for the guests to use. We used the canoe & had a great time. The staff were wonderfull!!Pleasant, helpfull & freindly. they all got to know you by name & would ask how your day was, did you have fun etc. John & Ellen were fantastic:) So helpfull, set up all our tours for us, flights, gave ideas, answered all our questions with a smile on their face. The food: can't say enough about the food, it was the best we have ever eatin!!!!We looked forward to the end of every day so that we could go to the bar, have a few drinks & see what John had on the menu for the day!!!I seriously don't believe we can ever top that vacation. It is a beautifull country, friendly people & the maya beach hotel is the only place to stay!!! thanks John & Ellen:)

Beautiful beach, gracious hosts and staff. Our room was really comfortable and looked out directly on the beach. John and Ellen have a wonderful balance of being relaxed and yet attentive to every detail. Our nine-year old found plenty to do. The food was delicious, too.

We have known John & Ellen since they opened Mayabeach Hotel & Bistro. They are the best. The staff is well trained and friendly. You can meet tourist and locals at the Bistro. Locals will include you in the fun or give you privacy to enjoy yourself. A wonderful vacation. Had a great birthday there.

We had a wonderful time at Maya Beach Hotel because of the owners: John and Ellen. They were so kind and helpful. They did so many thins to make our stay pleasant and relaxing. We stayed in the Jaguar Room, which was only 75 feet from the beach. This room has large windows looking out to the sea. Ellen arranged tours that were fun and very informative. This hotel offers great value. The service was extraordinary.

My wife and I just left the Maya Beach Hotel and must say we had a 'perfect vacation'. I was a little leery going to Belize, as I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But, once we checked in and Ellen & John (the owners) took the time to answer all our questions (and we had quite a few) we felt more at ease. Ellen was especially helpful setting up tours for us and explaining what the area had to offer. We're used to vacationing in Hawaii so Maya Beach was a new and unique experience for us. Once we slowed down, and realized there was no reason to get anywhere in a hurry, we really started to enjoy it.
Our room was right on the beach and for the price we paid it was a bargain. The restaurant seems to be a popular spot with tourists as well as locals. Many nights it was full but, they always found a table for us. The food, was absolutely the best.
Never have I had such personal attention from the owners and the staff. My only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer but we are off to explore other parts of Belize.

Ellen, john and staff make it seem easy to run a hotel/bistro. Thier connections with others in the area assure you`ll experience the best Belize has to offer(jungle river trips,diving,etc.).The food they serve in the bistro is the perfect ending to a full day.

My husband and I stayed at Maya Beach Hotel to attend a large celebration. When someone else arranges the accomodations, you are never sure what you might get...we had the best time!
We stayed in the Jaguar Room on the beach. Wow, spacious, comfortable and the view! We had at least 12 feet of windows and a charming screened front door with all beachfront view. Our favorite part was falling asleep and waking to the lapping waves on the beach. This charming room has it's own front porch which is on the beach. We were 15 yards from the water. The beach is so private you hardly see another person. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable that I have ever experienced while traveling. The drinking water tap at the sink was so nice to have. Lots of storage for all our luggage and snorkeling gear.
Make sure to borrow some great cruiser bikes from the front desk. The staff had them sitting out front, waiting for us, exactly the right size. We rode the entire afternoon, visiting galleries, soaking up the sun, the people and shopping. Then back for a refreshing swim in the ocean just outside our room.
MB Hotel also arranged several tours for us, all we had to do was ask! The staff is so nice, thoughtful and personal. They greeted us by name at every meal! The Bistro here also has the best food in Placencia. Every meal is fantastic.
I would definitely recommend a visit here for singles, couples or families. We will be back for sure.
