Thank you John and Ellen for accomodating and assisting our assorted wedding guests and family over the wedding week.

We particularily appreciate the extra attention you provided to the Bride and her Bridesmaids the night before the wedding day. Then again to the Bride and Groom following...

This time stayed in aqua villa. Great house. Unbelievable views, super pool & jacuzzi. Maya Bistro Hotel is the best - great staff, ambiance & food. Tried a few new dishes - squid/calamari stuffed with shrimp - big thumbs up. Thanks for a relaxing, mellow, safe & comfortable vacation once again MBH staff! Warmly, Judy

We were so happy with our stay here. We really needed a relaxing uneventful vacation and that's what we found. We were usually the only ones on the beach and felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The staff was so friendly and the food was some of the best we have EVER HAD. We are all looking...

My wife and I recently visited Plancecia on our vacation. We were lucky enough to stay with relatives but we did enjoy the food, beach and swimming pool at the Maya Beach hotel vertually every day.

You cant go wrong by staying here. a good variety of accommodations to be had here between the hotel and suites next door. They were very accommodating to my last minute needs. The gracious owners, Ellen and John are always helpful. The restaurant is second to none, and if you don't want a restaurant setting, head over to Mangoes bar.

Maya Beach was incredible. Spotless rooms, professional staff, soothing tropical breezes, the smell of fabulous cuisine wafting across the beach as you sip an ice cold beverage under a palm tree. This weekend was an answer to prayer for this workaholic.

When traveling sometimes you land in places where you feel everything is so close to nature and authenticity, or you meet people whose concern is your satisfaction and not your wallet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a small mid-range beach resort for couples who need comfort, but not luxury. Our hotel rooms are air conditioned with king or queen beds and nice beach views, and we also offer some beach house rentals in different price ranges. Our Bistro and swimming pool are a gathering place at the end of a day filled with snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, jungle hiking, spelunking, climbing Maya ruins, or just plain relaxing on the beach. The restaurant was also has also been awarded "Restaurant of the Year" twice by the Belize Tourism Board, and it remains a highlight of a stay here. ... more   less
