My husband and I stayed at Laru Beya for 5 nights on our honeymoon in March. We booked a jungle/beach all-inclusive package (3 nights in San Ignacio and 4 nights in Placencia + one extra night added) and it was well worth it. Tim organized everything for us and was very responsive to my questions in the weeks leading up the to trip. The place itself is great -- as others have described it, it's a small place but strikes a good balance of being intimate without you feeling like you're the only people staying there. If you're in Belize for the beach, you might be better off staying in Placencia village because, as others have mentioned, the beach is quite small at Laru Beya -- but we loved having an infinity pool just steps from the ocean, and there is plenty of space on the beach to put out chairs or a towel. The Quarterdeck food and drinks are delicious, and the menu is decently varied. The staff are all very friendly and helpful about organizing outings or getting you a golf cart to chug into town. We did a snorkeling excursion and the Monkey River cruise and, as others have mentioned, Jason is a great tour guide for Monkey River. Our room was also great -- the pictures on here don't do the rooms justice. They are spare and not huge, but are modern and have everything you need. Other reviewers recommended getting an ocean view, which we did, and it was great reading a book in the hammock while looking out over that blue, blue water. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
