“Placencia's Best Kept Secret...for now”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Our stay at Nirvana was one of the best romantic getaway me and my husband have had in years. The Amenities: 4Stars- exquisite decorative rooms, modern and top-of-the-line quality. The most beautiful wooden floors we have ever seen! Breakfast was more than we expected, included local Belizean bread and pastry, local fruit of the season and delicious local home-made preserves. Our room overlooked the beach, with a veranda furnished with a hammock (my husband's favorite) and very comfortable cushioned beach wicker chairs. The beach offered clean white sand and the water, warm and inviting. The owners/manager Barbara and Evan were friendly, accommodating and professional. We were promptly picked up and safely returned to the local airport as was promised. The staff made themselves available and were reliable and very friendly. We have decided to return for a longer visit next year. We highly recommend Nirvana!
Al and Rose Skeete.

Room Tip: Lower floors more easily accessible to the beach.

Placencia Belize is a very casual place, you wont be needing your dinner jacket. The Nirvana adds a touch of class without spoiling the relaxed and friendly atmosphere the village is known for. The people are genuinely kind, the rooms are large, clean and have more than what you need for a vacation stay. Did I mention clean? The location is perfect at the heart of the action but not next to a noisy bar and overlooking the sea. One of the best places to stay in Belize.

The Nirvana experience was truly a wonderful getaway.The owner Evan and other workers were exceptionally nice and helpful to us. They provided us with recommended nice spots to eat and have a good time.The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean.Including TV, WI FI, stereo set, dvd player and several other useful facilities. It felt like home. It also included FREE kayaks, bicycles and breakfast.
The beachfront view was breathtaking. Daily swimming and relaxing on the veranda. Most of all we felt safe. I must say that our stay at Nirvana was excellent from start to finish and is highly recommended. It was "Truly Paradise"

This was our first time to Placencia and we were so glad that we chose to stay at the Nirvana. The owners Evan and Barbara were so friendly and helpful! The hotel is beautifully decorated and the view and location are amazing. The breakfast each morning was also great! We will be back to Placencia and the Nirvana next year!

It was my first time at the Nirvana. The beach front is great. The owners, the manager as well as the employees treated us with love, family love. The breakfast on the roof top was very tasty. The rooms are well set up, clean and has a touch of class. The kids had their own space and enjoyed the beach and kayak. What was really nice is the card with a picture of the hotel that the owners had on the bed, with our names on it upon arrival. It created a true welcoming feeling! The stay was perfect and we will definitely go back to A Belizean Nirvana.

Room Tip: Peaceful, with much privacy.

In our opinion, the best hotel in Placencia! Met by one of the owners at the airport. Short tour of the town with helpful suggestions about where to eat. Hotel is relaxing, with many nice touches in the room. Internet service is reliable. Breakfast was plentiful ... The meat pies are truly a treat! We will go back to Placencia again with plans the take advantage of the many opportunities to go snorkeling, diving and/ or trips out to the cayes. When we do, no doubt we will return to (the) Nirvana!

Room Tip: I would recommend the room we had, the Oleander room on the first floor.
