Great value in a beautiful, peaceful, friendly, beachside small cabana resort on Maya Beach, Placencia peninsula, Belize. We were looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful place and found it here. Leo and the rest of the staff are the best. We felt at home right away. Lots of activities available if you want to go, but its all optional. If you are a big resort hotel, bar scene, glitz person, this is not the place for you. If you want a get away in a sweet spot, you will like it.

The Green Parrot Resort was great. I went there for a small wedding. The staff was excellent! They knew everybody's names and which cabana each person was staying in after the first day or so. If you wanted to book a trip (to the mayan ruins for example) all you had to do was tell Leo what day you wanted to go and he set everything up for you and drove you there and everything. The owners were also there while I was and they were so great and fun too. If you are looking to have a small intimate tropical wedding, this is the place. Leo and the staff decorated the entire dock for the wedding with palm tree leaves and fresh flowers (it looked awesome). Overall it was great. My only advice is bring bug spray.

Also don't worry guys. There is a little bar that is about a 3 minute walk right down the road with a television. (My boyfriend found it and was able to watch some football games that he thought he was going to have to miss while we were in Belize.)

Awesome spot on the beach. Located about 20 min from downtown Placencia on a bumpy road. A perfect place to chill on the beach and relax. The restaurant has good food at reasonable prices, but it doesn't stay open late. There is a bar that stays open late at the next hotel down the beach.

The cabana was very nice. There is a nice ocean breeze at night and the hammock on the front porch is awesome. Also, there is a fridge in the room.

If you are looking for an ideal Carribean location where you can do as little or as much as you please, this is the place!
The Green Parrot is small enough to feel intimate, yet large enough that each guest can feel that he or she has their own space.
Leo and his staff also know how to make each guest feel like the most important and most welcome person on earth. Miss Isabel is a wonderful cook. Unfortunately, she wasn't in the kitchen each evening of our 8-day stay, so the food ranged from outstanding to OK. The moonrise at dinner time is breathtaking. A giant orange ball rises from the sea and casts a mesmerizing glow across the water and into the Green Parrot's open dining room.
My wife and I spent a lot of time simply sitting and reading, enjoying the sun, breeze and the sound of the water lapping on the beach. No phones, computers, email or other distractions. Perfect!
When we felt like being more active, Leo arranged tours of a near-by banana plantation and a very excellent boat tour of the Monkey River. Our guide was a committed environmentalist who had a vast and intimate knowledge of the jungle plants and wildlife. Don't miss it.
Our visit to one of the country's Mayan ruins was awe inspiring. An unforgettable experience.
The government is working on paving the road to Placencia, which will make a world of difference. After the TropicAir flight from Belize City to Placencia, the ride to the Green Parrot may make you wonder what you've gotten yourself in to. But once you're there, you will probably never want to leave.
We'll very definately return.

We wanted a low key, beautiful, tropical location with nothing between us and the beach. Green Parrott was certainly the place to go. We stayed in a two storey cabana and it was perfect - not too formal but with very good service and a relaxing atmosphere. Leo and his staff were helpful and friendly. We managed to read 10 books between us as well as dive, explore caves, hike and swim in deep river pools. I would agree that the only downside is that you are a little distance from Placencia. However, given the choice I would prefer the low key location and have to travel to acitivities.

Reuben and Leo are the best. The Green Parrot is perfect for a no nonsense low maintenance trip. If you are high maintenance this is not for you. But if great service in a cool place with an unbelieveable view is then you are in the right place. We enjoy everything from the most helpful service to the awesome food prepared by the nice ladies to Leo and his great advice on Belize to Reuben who is by far one of the nicest people in Belize.
By only advice is to bring bug spray!!

My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon in Belize and stayed at the Green Parrot for the entire 11 day stay. It turned out to be one of the best vacations we have been on and in large part this is due to how great both the Green Parrot, and Leo the hotel manager were during the entire stay. We have never had someone as helpful and friendly as Leo who never ceast to go above and beyond. There are a couple less than stellar reviews on Green Parrot which usually complain about the lack of things to do, they are correct if you don't consider kayaking to the nearby mangrove island, snorkling in nearby waters, walking down the miles of public beach, hammocking in the freshly thatched pelapa, biking into either the gerufina village a few miles away or the town of Placencia a little further down the road, as well as a number of other day long activities. It's true you are not going to find any clubs or hoppin bars (although there is a pretty nice beach bar about 200 yards down the beach open every night) but if you are in need or a quite retreat and aren't looking for the big resort experience then I'm not sure how you could do much better than Green Parrot. Last but not least, they have Belikin beer on tap and Leo makes the best Panty Ripper this side of the equator.
