My wife and I stayed with another couple at the Aqua Villa house. This is a home managed by the Maya Beach Hotel located down the beach a few minutes walk. It was the "rainy" season, and we'd just arrived after a tropical depression, so keep that in mind as I go through our stay. Our days were windy (10...

This is a late review on from our honeymoon, but I wanted to be sure to get this review in as this was such a huge highlight for us. We stayed at the Maya Beach Hotel July 2012 and we loved it!!!

Someone said you can't have as much fun on the second visit to a vacation spot as you did on the first visit. This is not true at Maya Beach Hotel. This trip was like going home to family.

We stayed here for two nights in the Jaguar room prior to a catamaran charter. What a great spot to just chill, read or whatever. You are literally 75 ft. from the water with a beautiful beach. No need to eat anywhere else as the bistro is excellent with a great menu. The staff is very friendly and we would...

It was our first time to Belize and we couldn't have been happier with the exceptional staff and quality of the Maya hotel and bistro! Not only is it insanely cheap for the quality, but the location is amazing. We stayed for 8 days, 7 in the hibiscus room and one in the hummingbird and both were clean, quiet and...

We stayed 8 nights in the Flip Flop Palace at Maya Beach Hotel, from May 19-May 27. This place is awesome! The beach is beautiful and hand-groomed every morning! We walked up and down the beach and Maya Beach Resort has, by far, the best maintained and prettiest beach in this area. The owners and staff at the hotel/bistro are...

We stayed at Maya Beach Hotel and had a wonderful time. We stayed for two nights, wish it could have been an entire week. Our room was the "converted garage" and we LOVED it. One of the swimming pools was literally outside our door and hardly anyone used it except us. The food at the restaurant was outstanding. At times,...

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
