My husband and I (ages 25) stayed 14 days at Maya Beach Hotel in June of 2008 for our honeymoon and I still daydream about the days spent there. We could not have picked a better place. John and Ellen were such wonderful hosts. They helped us with all of our excursions and any questions we had. (Zeff is THE BEST tour guide EVER)
John personally picked us up at the airport. The location is fantastic. It's secluded and private yet just a short bus ride away from the fun town of Placencia. Riding the old yellow bus with the locals was fun! Taxis are like $20 each way from hotel to Placencia so taking the bus is definitely worth it!
The food at the hotel restaurant is AMAZING! The staff is friendly and welcoming. The beach is beautiful and you could even take one of the complimentary kayaks to a little island that's visible from the shore and they also have complimentary snorkel gear.
We went scuba diving which was AMAZING, Ellen can set it up for you, we reccomend Devin at seahorse Diving.

You could also take a short walk down to visit Gary at Frisky Frog's to eat or go to Mango's Bar right on the beach where Steve and annemarie will certainly entertain you.
We made such great friends there!
Barefoot Bar in Placencia usually has live reggae music on the weekend and domino games going on, plus a pool table inside..you are guaranteed to always have a good time there. Overall, We LOVED Maya Beach Hotel and Placencia and we certainly fell in love with the people of Belize! We would not have changed a thing about our entire two week stay there!

One of Belize's Jewels! The food, service,atmosphere and value can not be beat. The staff gets my thumbs up!
Best place on Peninsula to eat. Just renovated and expanded to even better accomodate the many local patrons relying on this establishment for consistently excellent meals.
Cant wait to go back!!!!

My wife and I spent three nights at Maya Beach Hotel, which is located about 6 miles north of Placencia village. The beachfront property is isolated from other resorts and also has a great restaurant with a fun menu and cocktail list. Ellen and John are amazing hosts and their employees were great as well. The pool there is new and very clean. We stayed in the Coconut Room, which is a ocean view, top floor unit with it’s own deck area. Not all the rooms have these features so ask for it if available. They have their own pier which is great for catching sunrises and laying in a hammock for a quick nap. The sandy beach there also seems cleaner and better maintained than most other places in Placencia.. We took the kayaks out to False Caye and did some snorkeling out there. Getting to the Placencia village is not as easy as it seems, taxi or the bus is definitely recommended. Taking the bicycles out to check out local art galleries (e.g. Lola's) and heading north to Placencia Hotel was fun as well. In a couple of years, once the roads are paved, the whole area will look very different and perhaps more crowded. Go sooner than later if possible. Another place nearby to check out is Mangos, a fun couple runs the bar there, go for some rum tasting.

The Maya Beach Hotel is a simple, clean, friendly resort located right on the beach in Maya Beach, on the Placencia peninsula.
The rooms are clean, air conditioned and nicely appointed. Many have views of the beach. The resort is run by Ellen and John, who are friendly, helpful and very involved in their guests' experience of their stays. They see to your every comfort, including transportation, meals and excursions. The property has a brand new swimming pool, comfortable chairs on the beach, a dock and palapa with a swing and chairs. Bicycles and kayaks are available at no charge for guests pleasure.

The Maya Beach Hotel also has a Bistro with some of the best food in Belize. Prices are outstanding, as is the food.

I highly recommend a stay at the Maya Beach Hotel as part of your visit to Belize.

Best Value we had in Belize so far. People actually know your name! The food was excellent and the rooms clean. There is not much in Plasencia so there is no reason to stay in town. You can arrange tours from the hotel and they will also do laundry.
