“Good times in Belize”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

Spent 8 great days at the Los Porticos Villas 6C. We had a very spacious 2 bedroom condo with everything you would need to be very comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen was perfect for preparing breakfasts, snacks and drinks. 1.5 minutes to walk to the pool (we mostly had to ourselves) and 3 minutes to the beach. The veranda was massive, perfect for reading or having an afternoon nap. Had many meals at Turtle Inn next door or we took a cab or golf cart to town for some great food at Rumfish or Secret Garden. Staff at Los Porticos always willing to make your stay enjoyable. Any request was looked after quickly. Full time residents are friendly and helpful with suggestions about the local area. There is a car rental 1 block away and I recommend you rent a car and explore some of the area. Consider a 15 minute drive to have a meal at Mayan Beach Bistro, outstanding! If you love snorkelling you can go off the beach or take a snorkelling or diving tour out towards the reef. In all a very good stay with very comfortable, spacious and convenient accommodations, loved it!

Room Tip: 6C is nicely decorated and has every convenience. Its one of the larger units in the complex. The fu...

Spent a week in 1A right on the water. Huge 2 bedroom condo, with access to a waterfront semi private Infiniti pool...very nice. Great staff and management, and absolutely the best location in Placencia. Next door to Coppola's Turtle Inn, and close to town. Easy access to the airport.

The resort doesn't have a restaurant or bar, but it our unit has a large kitchen. We also found some great local places for breakfast (try Wendy's) and lunch (Barefoot Bar). Too many great local spots for dinner, but Rum Fish certainly is a must try.

A weeks stay at Los Porticos was just what the doctor ordered. Rest & Relaxation! My wife, her sister and I stayed in Unit 1C an upstairs, beachside condo with a private pool access. The unit is well supplied with furnishings but I have to admit that I missed my bed at home. The unit is also supplied with four bicycles for a short ride into town when needed. Although I could use the exercise, we later opted for a golf cart due to some pending inclement weather in area. Couldn't be more pleased with the staff and facilities. Gayone tended to our needs quite efficiently with minor issues or when we needed anything. We spent a couple days just sunning around the pool. Placencia village has its own charm. The local Belizean residents we met were very courteous. The sooner you get on "island time" the more enjoyable your stay will be. Roll with the Flow and enjoy the Ride! We definitely would return.

Weather was too choppy for any snorkeling but we thoroughly enjoyed the Chocolate Tour & Mayan Ruins w/ Liria from Cayquest Tours. Favorite restaurant was DeTatch w/ a nice oceanfront atmosphere. Tipsy Tuna & Barefoot Bars to mingle with some of the locals over a couple of cervezas.

Myself and two friends booked unit 5A at Los Porticos, and it was our home base for a fantastic eight days in Placencia. Gayone took care of everything leading up to our arrival; it was seamless from the time I inquired about availability to when we touched down at the Placencia airstrip and Karissa was there to meet us, check us in, and show us around.

Los Porticos itself is a great complex, clean, well maintained, and it felt almost like being at home (though I have neither a pool nor cashew trees at home). Very nice facilities – having the pool was fantastic, and a huge selling feature, in my opinion. Not a lot of places have a pool, and our afternoon pool time was one of the highlights of the trip.

Gayone and Karissa are very much in the know about the goings on in and around Placencia; they set us up on some really great tours that we didn’t see offered through anyone else, and can recommend places that you won’t find listed. Ask them about the Ixcacao chocolate tour, snorkelling with Mark, and Carmen & Maria’s delicious food stand (mmmm fried tacos mmmm).

Andreas is a super attentive caretaker, and had our pool deck chairs set up before we even made it out there – we were very grateful for that. 

Los Porticos is a bit of a distance from where the action is. If you can use the bikes that they provide, it would be a short ride (maybe 10 minutes). It took us about 25 minutes to get into town on foot. The plus side of this is that it’s nice and quiet – the only sound you’ll hear at night is the waves.

The walk along the road is hot during the day, so keep that in mind when planning your time. We ended up going for coffee/breakfast early in the day, then coming back for some pool/shade time, then back into town again for dinner in the evening once it cooled down a bit. It gets dark by 700pm, and cools down nicely. Note that the road is not well lit at night (in some spots not at all) – use at your own risk if walking/biking (not so much that we felt unsafe, but were more worried about getting run over). We tried it the first night, but then ended up cabbing it the rest of the time.

Walking in along the beach is awesome (and a shorter distance than using the road), but a bit unpredictable with the water levels. Some mornings were fine to walk along the sand with the occasional shallow dip needed, but others you would have needed hip waders to avoid getting completely soaked. I wouldn’t do the beach walk back at night - you can’t see anything.

Thanks for helping to make it such a fun time! Will definitely be back to Placencia, and to Los Porticos.

Room Tip: Unit 5A was great - two big bedrooms and bathrooms to match and a couch big enough for sleeping on...

We stayed in unit 6B for a 10 day stay in early April. The condo unit was very spacious, nicely decorated, with a lovely good size outdoor covered veranda. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable for two couples. We were only about 30 steps from the pool and about 60 steps to the ocean. Lovely pool with a sit down bar. You can walk out on the beach and walk all the way to downtown Placencia, which is a shorter walk than on the road, and a whole lot cooler. It is a nice location but you will need some form of transportation to get into down on a regular basis (rent a golf cart, or bicycles) - we had a rental car so no problem. Gayone manages the complex, is very friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed out stay there and highly recommend it. Certainly one of the nicest places in the area.

We stayed in villa 5B and had an amazing time. The condo had all the comforts of home and very nicely decorated. The grounds were well kept and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We felt like we were part of a community. We rented a golf cart to get around and into the town of Placencia. Very relaxing holiday. Gayone was great to deal with and made all the arrangements for activities we wanted to do. All we needed to do was show up. This was our first time in Belize and so glad we chose Los Porticos to stay very friendly and very safe. We liked that we were just out of town but it was still easy to get to by bike or walking.

This condo is superb. Everything you need is at hand. The grounds of the villas are pristine and beautiful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. This particular condo has the best location in the complex. It is right at ocean-side with a semi-private infinity pool right outside the door. The condo is modern, spacious, and well appointed. It was the perfect relaxing vacation. We had a hard time leaving and will be returning to stay in this unit again.
