“Great place”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We took a gamble on a new destination (Belize) and a new resort. Beautiful facility very low key and the staff was fantastic. It was steps from the ocean and the food was very good although the menu was limited. Lots to do nearby

Opened in mid December and totally off the radar screen this hotel has some big strengths and some weaknesses that are way offset by the inexpensive price. When we visited in March the hotel was nearly empty. Positives: brand new resort, not overly large, rooms we'll appointed, huge nice pool, great bar with best drinks in placencia, great service, a relatively (for Belize) big beach, decor was nice a cross between Belize and Miami and as mentioned the prices are way below alternatives such as Lara beyu (although we liked Laru beyu better)... Food was not great although you are golf cart ride away from maya beach bistro which has best food in the area, beach is nice but like almost all of Belize the water is not clear carribean blue until 60 feet offshore, the location of the hotel is a bit in the hinterlands (20-30 minutes outside of placencia where you will start a lot of activities). Overall though given the relatively low price to alternatives for brand new very nice accommodations far outweigh the issues with location and food.

Stayed two weeks at the Belize Ocean Club with our son and daughter-in-law, this is our last day! It has been awesome! The front office staff, drivers especially Francis, Lorraine, Charlie and Crystal at the bar and dining room were great. Food was very good, the kitchen would prepare items at request not even on the menu! Our rooms were immaculate and spacious. Staff including housekeeping and grounds people were so kind and friendly, Felt extremely safe at all times. The Ocean Club provided complimentary shuttle to the town, airport and grocery store. Sad to leave, a gem in Belize, hope to return with the rest of our family!

Room Tip: The fitness center will be open soon!

We just got back from a 10 day stay at the Belize ocean club. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and the beach and pool are steps away from the rooms. What truly makes this place special is the amazing staff, they are so polite and friendly. I recommend getting a car as the hotel is a 20 minute drive to Placencia village. The only negative is that the food is a bit expensive for what you get but there a plenty of restaurants in village to eat at.

This resort just opened in the last couple months. It was previously the Bella Maya. Which had opened in 2008. It didn't survive much more than a year, management problems I guess. But, it was such a beautiful property, good spot on the Placencia peninsula . NOW, a Wow! So we decided to check it out, as they have a Sunday beach party open to the public. Go, it was a really fun time. Good marketing tool to get people to come check it out.
I would describe it as very Caribbean cosmopolitan. People we met who we're staying there loved the rooms. We all agreed the staff are very friendly and attentive. Especially Efner and Jason!! Great place, upscale for the Peninsula.

We are residents in Placencia from the UK and like to visit the local businesses, we spent our Sunday at Belize Ocean Club for the first time using their facilities, Pool, Beach bar/restuarant.

On Sundays they have a pool party, plenty of good music playing and a great atmosphere with everyone happy and enjoying themselves, volleyball on the beach or simply soaking up the Belizean sun with a cocktail.

All staff were very friendly and helpful, they all seemed to enjoy themselves as much as the visitors!
Drinks are good prices and they have special pool party offers, we also stayed for food which again, was a really good price and excellent quality!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday, lovely pool, great beach front, fab food and drinks....definitely see you again!! :)

The Belize Ocean Club is an impressive establishment with top-notch service, beautiful grounds, and large, well-appointed rooms. First, the staff are all genuinely friendly and helpful: The owners were present and mingled with the guests and the locals who frequent the resort. They are great people and are working very hard to get the hotel up to the standards that they are striving for. The staff at the front desk are also very accommodating and will help arrange any excursions, trips into Placencia and take care of anything and everything. The bartenders and servers are all a lot of fun and really make hanging out at the pool bar a joy. Security will run you into the village, to the grocery store and back and forth from the airport, and everyone greets you with a genuine smile. The grounds are beautiful, with colorful flowers and trees everywhere, which are constantly being tended to. The beach, while small, is still one of the nicer ones on the peninsula and is spotless and pristine. The rooms are all suites, and include a large kitchen, which is really nice. The sitting area is large, and having two bedrooms and two bathrooms made the room feel like home versus a hotel.

The second half of the hotel is being completed on the lagoon side and will include a gym and a formal restaurant. The food was good, and while it does take a while for it to be served, you just learn to order early. Being so new, there are still some kinks to be worked out, but they are minor. One suggestion is to have black out blinds in the rooms, as the sunrise early in the morning serves as a bit of an early wake-up call with the brightness. However, waking up to the beautiful scene outside your window is a nice problem to have. It is a bit of a trek into Placencia, but as the other reviews mention, there are ways to get into town (driver, cab or Ritchie's Bus), and with the Bistro and Mango's close by there are alternatives, but there aren't a lot of reasons to leave the BOC. Can't wait to come back!
