“Better than expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2009

This was our first trip to Belize, so we were not sure what to expect. We selected the Green Parrot from the internet. One thing that impressed us was the quick response we received. In addition they answered all of our questions about the resort and things to do. So off we went.
We were picked up at the Placencia Airport --that is an experience - by the van that took us to the Resort. The road is a bit surprising --lots of pot holes - but they seem to be in the process of rebuilding it. Also we passed through seign bight village - talk about 3rd world poverty. With that little intrduction to Belize - we were a bit concerned with what we might find. Well were we surprised --what a loverly location. Right on the Caribbean - the open restaurant looks right out on the water. A great dock to sit on and watch for dolphins - we saw the back of one.
Cabanas are clean and nice. We liked the privacy.
Food is good and local produce is used.
Trips - we liked Monkey River and the Mayan Ruins.
Staff --Wow --Ruben knew our name the first day --he is the bar tender.
Leo--there is a gem --just ask him and he will direct you to the best tours and give you a lot of information on the resort and Belize.
We hated to leave -but back to indiana and the winter.
We will put this on our annual list of places to visit. We just hope that it does not change.

So many times, what really is the first thought in your head, is will the hotel and location be as you expected it to be. Well, it was. Every review that I had read on here prior to going pretty much summed it up.

The houses are as expected, nice, personal touch, quiet, peaceful, interesting.

The staff was overall, very good, and personable/friendly. I especially enjoyed meeting Reuben and Tanya. The food, I thought was very, very good.

The beach is quiet, the ocean calm, and the view splendid.

The tours, Monkey River and Mayan Ruins, were, as expected, excellent.

Had no worries at either airport, unlike Caracas and Venezuela where I visited last year.

OVerall, I would recommend it, to anyone that likes peace and quiet, getting to know a couple of people, go at your own pace, see a couple of sights, and have a pretty god 4-5 days somewhere.

This was the second half of our honeymoon in Belize. We had planned to use Placencia as our jumping off point for snokeling and swimming. Unfortunately, the weather and the ocean had other plans for us.

When we arrived at Green Parrot, we were the only patrons. The beach is beautiful and the houses are gorgeous mahogany with kitchenettes. The showers leave some pressure to be desired, but when you're in such a beautiful place, its hard to complain!

The weather in June is blustery and the wood shutters over the screens aren't the best for keeping the wind out, so we felt pretty windblown most nights.

The service is wonderful. Our room was cleaned everyday, even though we were the only ones there (and we would have been absolutely content with picking up after ourselves). The food was great (we were there for lobster season) and we enjoyed evening excursions to Placencia.

  • Liked — The beach and the service
  • Disliked — The shower

This was the most relaxing vacation. I was thrilled that the ocean was so close to the room and restaurant. I has such a wonderful time there. The food was great. The drinks were great. The staff at Green Parrot are very friendly and very helpful. Leo and the gang are such nice people. Leo did such a nice job of lining up tours we wanted to take and was helpful in answering questions about the tours. I sure enjoyed myself and the beach and look forward to returning. Thank you!

  • Liked — The views of the ocean.
  • Disliked — Nothing comes to mind.

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.

  • Liked — Roomy cabana with great views.
  • Disliked — Hot water in the shower not always reliable.

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.)

  • Liked — It is right on the beach
