Belize Ocean Club, a Muy'Ono Resort

Reviewed May 27, 2014

We attended a 4 day event at the Belize Ocean Club in May. If you're planning to have an event at BOC, this review should be particularly helpful. As everyone has said, the beach is great, the rooms are great, the pool is fantastic! A few things stood out to us in particular...the wifi was great and easily accessible compared to other resorts in Belize that we've been to. You can literally take a picture and share it online almost instantly, huge plus because this is not very common in Belize. The staff...wow! Flawless, especially the guys at the bar. Our event had a little over 100 guests and Ben (the owner) and staff kept the level of service consistent throughout our say. One last thing, the view at the back was breathtaking for the reception! So much that it makes no sense to attempt to describe it but I'll try. Basically, we were on the second floor, looking out at the lagoon and mayan mountains at the back, silhouetted by the sunset! Images to come...

I was staying in Belize for approximately 10 days. Originally I was staying in Belize City, which wasn't TOO bad but there weren't any beaches. So during one of my road trips in the south, my buddy and I saw the sign for the Ocean Club and decided to stop for lunch. As soon as we saw this place we KNEW we had to stay here for the last four days of our trip. We were NOT disappointed. The staff was excellent. The food was very well made. The views were spectacular. But most of all, the owner himself was like no other that I have ever seen. He was very hands on with everything about his facilities. He was very friendly and ensured his guests had everything they needed. He even joined his guests on Sunday for conversation and entertainment. One of the amazing things about this Club is the fact that the pictures on his website are EXACTLY like they are in person. This is not the case at MANY of the hotels in Belize or even state side. Another thing I liked about this place is the variety of complementary inclusions during my stay. This place is new, as one can tell by some of the smaller details within the place but that just means this place will continue to get better! The rates are VERY good and the rooms are VERY spacious. I WILL BE RETURNING in the future for my (late) honeymoon and anniversaries. There is just too much to do in Belize to just make it a one trip deal. Thank you Very Much BEN for making my stay in Belize that much more enjoyable!

Room Tip: Any room will be great, wether on the ocean or on the lagoon.

Spectacular, friendly, comfortable, luxurious. We will return as often as possible. If you go to Placencia district, stay here and you won't be disappointed. Food good, views to die for, great pool, swept and debugged beach every day. The staff cannot do enough for you. A perfect base for a memorable holiday.

We chose to stay at the Belize Ocean Club after seeing positive reviews online and were not disappointed. The hotel itself is beautiful, set right on the ocean with a large infinity pool and pool bar that kept the rum drinks flowing. The hotel staff were simply wonderful. Jason, in particular, was a joy to talk to at the pool and made great recommendations for where to explore in Placencia.
The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling. There are kayaks and paddle boards available for free use. We rented one of the larger suites (2BR/2bath) with another couple and found the balcony view at night to be tremendous. We also enjoyed having a kitchen to make breakfast in the morning with supplies bought from a small grocery store less than 5 minutes away. We ate at the hotel bar/restaurant at the pool a few times and found each meal to be tremendous. The hotel hosts a pool party on Sunday that is not to be missed. It was a great way to meet people who live on the Placencia Peninsula. The hotel staff were also very helpful in coordinating day trips such as a trip to Monkey River and a chartered catamaran.

The only thing to know before staying is that the Belize Ocean Club is about 20-25 minutes up the coast from Placencia. We rented a car, which made transportation easy, and the hotel was willing to provide transportation to Placencia at request. There are also a few restaurants closer to the B.O.C. that are more accessible for those not wanting to drive further each night.

We chose Belize Ocean Club based off of online reviews and were very pleased. The resort has great staff, very accommodating. The bartenders put together some great drinks. We were also able to meet the owner, Ben, who was very personable.
Unfortunately you will not see much in the tour guide books about this resort because it opened in December of 2013. Hopefully it will make its way into Fodor's, Lonely Planet, etc. as it appeared to be the nicest resort in Placencia.

The Staff is amazing! Enjoyed every minute we stayed there! We will definitely be back. The chef and staff created a beautiful Anniversary dinner on the beach for us. The rooms were very nice and spacious. I think it will only get better!

We came to The Ocean Club to celebrate my wife's birthday. Chef Fernando made a special dinner and cake. The Ocean Club set up a special dinner for us on the beach with tiki torches. We loved this place from the first day to the last "good-byes" to the staff. Hendri at the bar made sure we had cool drinks. Sammy at the bar suggested we visit the Purple Space Monkey café, in the nearby village of Placencia, for lunch. Great café. If you go, have the burger. Friday night we went to The Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro. Very clean and nice - and friendly. Lisa was our waitress - she was so nice. We enjoyed snapper and shrimp prepared special by chef John and his staff. Placencia is the village on the peninsula, and the common name for the whole area (for us tourists). So, we strongly recommend you come to Placencia. And, when you think of perfection, stay at The Ocean Club.

Room Tip: Every room has a view of the ocean. Every room is actually a small apartment layout. Very, very soun...
