Cannot fault it. Beautifully run, staff both charming and entertaining - particularly Cedric and Kenton. We have eaten at several Michelin starred restaurants but really never better. Lobster bread pudding a masterpiece! We'll done John and Ellen. Hope we can return but it is a long way from mid-Wales where we have retired to.

Upon arrival I was upgraded from a single room to a 3 bedroom apartment. The room was lovely, above the restaurant and could have easily accommodated a family of 6. I had a huge private balcony with sectional seating. I peeked into the room I booked in which I would also have been perfectly content but it was great to...

If you're wanting to relax, eat great food, be pampered by the staff then this is the place for you. The owner came around to every table and spoke to each guest during dinner which is such a great touch. The Staff arranged all of the outings we wanted and made it so easy to just relax and enjoy ourselves....

Our short but sweet stay at the Joya Main offered more room than we needed. We originally booked the king conch online but the system apparently double booked the room and so they honored the same rate for the Joya Main. They did tell us it was one of their older units. It was functional but could use a refresh....

What a great place to kick off your shoes and totally relax. We stayed not long enough with the host Ellen and her great staff. Lying in bed in the Jaguar room one could watch the sunrise over the beach while enjoying AC, Bed and Breakfast type accommodations,and Wi-Fi. The restaurant on property was incredible. Fish was fresh, juices were...

Whenever I need a break and I find the time I go to Placencia. Since I don't like the hustle and bustle I prefer to stay at Maya Beach. It is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful Carribean Sea. The rooms are big, very clean and well equipped. The beach in front of the hotel is small...

We stayed in the upper Dreamsicle house for a week. This is a great house to rent if you are wanting a little extra privacy and space as compared to staying in a hotel. The staff was great, the property was well kept, and the Bistro had amazing food.

The highlight is certainly the food. The menu is inspired and everything we ate was delicious. We stayed in the Jaguar room. It was simple and cozy. Great view of the beach while laying in bed. The owners (Ellen & John) were very nice and clearly know how to run a hotel and restaurant. The property is peaceful and laid...
