“2nd Time Just As Great As The First”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 via mobile

This time stayed in aqua villa. Great house. Unbelievable views, super pool & jacuzzi. Maya Bistro Hotel is the best - great staff, ambiance & food. Tried a few new dishes - squid/calamari stuffed with shrimp - big thumbs up. Thanks for a relaxing, mellow, safe & comfortable vacation once again MBH staff! Warmly, Judy

We were so happy with our stay here. We really needed a relaxing uneventful vacation and that's what we found. We were usually the only ones on the beach and felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The staff was so friendly and the food was some of the best we have EVER HAD. We are all looking forward to our next visit.

My wife and I recently visited Plancecia on our vacation. We were lucky enough to stay with relatives but we did enjoy the food, beach and swimming pool at the Maya Beach hotel vertually every day. The people at the Bistro restaurant are awsome (especially Lisa and Avi!!). Being a sun lover, my wife found out that if you visit the restaurant or bar you are allowed to enjoy the facilities there. We went there so often that when we went to say goodbye before returning to the USA, I was told that it felt as if we stayed there!
The food at the Bistro is great and like I sais, the staff and management are really friendly. We will definitely visit them again and also recommend them to friends and family.

You cant go wrong by staying here. a good variety of accommodations to be had here between the hotel and suites next door. They were very accommodating to my last minute needs. The gracious owners, Ellen and John are always helpful. The restaurant is second to none, and if you don't want a restaurant setting, head over to Mangoes bar.

Maya Beach was incredible. Spotless rooms, professional staff, soothing tropical breezes, the smell of fabulous cuisine wafting across the beach as you sip an ice cold beverage under a palm tree. This weekend was an answer to prayer for this workaholic.

beautiful surroundings, the water is not very clear there. this hotel is about 7 miles from town. we landed in Belize City and missed the bus to take us to Placencia, taxie ride was about 6hrs and very expensive, took alot of my extra money. American money is double to Belizans. so what I can say is either stay closer to town or at a more expensive hotel like the Palacencia, which has more there. a shuttle service and a massage, wonderful swedish massage. I walked to this hotel to enjoy the beautiful pool. the water seemed to be cleaner there .... if I wanted to go snorkeling the boat would have to take us to an island way out in the ocean, of course,, I did not check on snorkeling anywhere else, price...etc...but there are places in town, if you can get there. they do have rentals in town also, bike, golf carts, scooters, etc...and the Maya hotel has bikes that you can use. The food is the best, cannot say anything bad about that!! people are nice and friendly and will help anyway they can to make your stay more pleasant.

Room Tip: hotel rooms are small and not what the usual hotel rooms they are seperate like individual rooms off...

When traveling sometimes you land in places where you feel everything is so close to nature and authenticity, or you meet people whose concern is your satisfaction and not your wallet. Well Maya Beach is one of those. We just stayed for one night but I can assure you this was enough realising that we were in a nice, no a special place. I fear it won't last forever.
Special rating also to the food, dinner was excellent! This is also shown by the numerous diners coming from the outside.
PS: I wish to express a particular thank you to the manager who took her personal car to drive us to the airport!
