Lots and lots of nice beach chairs, beautiful pool with a little waterfall. Small quiet resort, really friendly and helpful staff. Josephina made our breakfasts cooked to order every morning. Beach toys for us to use: kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and snorkeling equipment. There is a pretty good little snorkeling area just maybe 100-200 yards off shore. The resort is painted...

Loved this place! We stayed in the beach house! It was very spacious! Very lovely! It could've been a little cleaner... The pool was extremely nice! The view was gorgeous! The use of the bikes was a plus and the kayaks. My dad and I kayaked and snorkeled at False Caye which wasn't very far. Belize is a beautiful country...

I am not a resort-type person so I don't expect towels folded like swans or huge rooms and bathrooms....but really, when I say the rooms are small - I'm talking miniscule. Our suitcases fitted under the bed and basically we lived out of the suitcases. The only place to hang anything was a makeshift rod about 12 inches long lodged...

We really enjoyed our time here. We felt like we were the only ones and had the place to ourself! Pool and beach was nicely kept! Staff was friendly. The use of kayaks and bikes is a plus too. Room was average...Do be aware of all the "rules" they ask of you (limited toilet flushing, short showers) Would stay here...

Thank you for taking time to review our B & B! We do encourage our guests to help us conserve fresh water, since the "high season" is also the "dry season". However, the decision to practice (or not) conservation is totally up to each individual guest.

The staff at this B&B are lovely and the location is great. We stayed in the Beach House, which is right on the beach - you can't get any closer to oceanfront than this! It has a cute porch on the front, and is also right beside the pool. However, we found the Beach House to be very small, and...

Thank you for your recent stay at our beach resort! As part of our ongoing pursuit of improvement, we are expanding the master bedroom in the beach house, all pillows have been replaced, a new queen bed is on order. A new sliding glass door is on it's way, all bathroom outlets are now GFI.

Joyce & Frank's place on Maya Beach Placencia is a favorite of ours. We first stayed there three years ago and have come back every year since. The guest houses are small but comfortable and are located right on the beach. We always look forward to seeing Josephine who handles the cooking. Everything I ordered, from pancakes to the shrimp...

When you find a great spot, and it's consistently good, why take a chance on a less satisfying experience somewhere else? We look forward to your next visit, as we continually strive to improve and expand upon what we have to offer.

We stayed for the month of Feb. 2015. We had a lovely time. We loved our little bungalow. It was on the second floor, over looking the pool and ocean. I was able to climb lookout platform many mornings to see beautiful sunrises. The staff was awesome. We were always greeted with big smiles and they worked very hard to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Joyce and Frank’s bed and breakfast. The rooms are right on the beach with a great view if the ocean, pier, and swimming pool. The beds, pillows, and hammocks are very comfortable. I found the remote control air conditioner quite handy. We had suite 102, which was very spacious, with 2 closets, an armoire,...

This is a small resort and you quickly feel like family. There is an awesome pool and beach with paddle board and kayaks. A full breakfast every morning but you need to find elsewhere for dinner. Not a problem, there are many options within walking distance. This is the kind of place we love to stay at, in a great...

My wife and I planned a trip to Belize with a friend, and ended up with one more friend joining us (we were a group of 4 adults). Joyce and Frank were happy to accommodate us, and advised us that the Bungalows comfortably house 2 adults only, so were were pointed to the Suite, which ended up being perfect! The...

“The 'Bungalows' 1,2,3 and 4 are very small and I wouldn't choose this again.The beach bungalow and the private villa are both perfect for families, the others I'm not familiar with.”

“The Bungalows are great for two adults, and the Suite was perfect for three adults, or four adults who know each other well. The Suite faced the ocean and was beautifully quiet. Our AC was quiet and efficient.”

“Bungalow one is ocean front with a quaint porch for reading, relaxing with a drink or morning coffee. Bungalow 2 was a little more private and elevated with a nice porch as well--the view isn't as nice--but you are only 50 feet from the sea and you can hear the waves crashing as you fall asleep--and the privacy is an added plus. Each Bungalow has its own charm in our view!!”

“Bungalow #1 was the closest to the beach, but all the rooms/bungalows had a great view. Bungalow #1 was also the smallest room and had a fridge and microwave versus a kitchenette.”
