We stayed in 4 places during our trip to Belize, the Maya Beach Hotel was easily the best accommodations. Room was perfect for a family, with a separate bedroom for Mom and Dad. Good quality bedding. Two air conditioners let us keep the room exactly how we wanted it. Beach was nice, Placencia is a unique place with the most...

My boyfriend and I had a great 3 night stay at the Maya Beach Hotel. From the reservation to the check out, every person that I worked with was incredibly helpful, especially Ellen, Marlon, and Cleeve. We flew in from San Ignacio and arrived pretty early in the morning- several hours before check-in. I contacted Maya Beach Hotel, and they...

Stayed a couple of nights before our journey to Belmopan and had an excellent time. The food is the absolute best on the peninsula and the grounds are kept extremely clean. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The entire staff was so helpful.

Travelled with partner, son,and grandson.Spoiled ourselves by booking both Upper and Lower Dreamsicle.Well worth the money. Other much more expensive stays before and after.We can't help judging them against Maya Beach,and none matched up for accommodation and, especially, food.The combination of excellent food,and...

The quality of our stay exceeded my highest expectations. Every person was beyond friendly and accommodating. The food was absolutely amazing. Ellen and John have an exceptional resort to relax in. We can't wait to return.

This small hotel isn't grand, isn't luxurious, isn't pretentious, and it doesn't aspire to be any of those things. It is un-fancy and un-fussy, though on any given night in the open air Bistro there will be a few marvelously dressed dinner guests and the look of the place, with the dark woods and pedestal wickerwork chairs and tables, has...

We reviewed many places before selecting Maya Beach Hotel, and found it to be a great choice. We arrived late in the evening, and were greeted warmly. Owner Ellen was concerned we were hungry, and kept the restaurant open to feed us before checking in. The restaurant staff is fun and friendly, and the chef's menu is delectable and delicious....

The owners are wonderful and helpful, staff is fun and efficient, food is to die for. The Caribbean was so beautiful to watch as we ate. There is an intimacy about this place that one does not find often. Prices suited us to a "T".

I recently visited Maya Beach with my two twenty something sons for 5 days. We had a great trip. The Maya Beach was awesome. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable. The staff was wonderful.
