“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We stayed at Miramar Apartments for a week with my family and absolutely loved it. It is the perfect distance from places to eat but not any noise can be heard. all the rooms have air conditioning and Oscar and Bula are wonderful. Oscar even took my brothers out to a boxing show and let me pull coconuts down from a tree and drink the water. My mother is so very picky about where she stays, and she loved it!

Def the best place to stay in Placencia.

Room Tip: The ones on the beach are amazing!

Had a great time here with the family relaxing on the beach and visiting shops restaurants and bars nearby. Apartment is nicely furnished, clean and we'll located in a really nice safe resort. We visited on a holiday to Belize, it was about two and a half hour drive from Belize City. The beach here is nice, sea warm and environment nice. Would definitely recommend.

Just returned from a wonderful three week stay. As always Ilsa, Bula and Oscar were top notch and never left us wanting. We opt for the beach front unit which is only about 100 feet from the ocean and has a very nice patio with comfortable chairs. We rented the whole building the first week to accommodate the bunch of us (9 total) and everyone had a ball. Great location close enough to walk the whole village and close to everything. We can't wait to go back in June.

Room Tip: Go for the beach frint building great views.

Due to smoky conditions in San Ignacio, we decided to go to Placencia a day ahead of our reservation. After a quick email to Ilsa, the manager, she advised us that they could accommodate our early arrival and to let her know what time we'd be arriving so she could meet us. When we got out of the taxi, we were warmly greeted by Ilsa, who had fresh flowers on the table and ice cold Belikins in the fridge! Talk about personalized service!! Ilsa is a ray of sunshine with a big smile who is always ready to assist you any way she can. From the first time I contacted the Miramar through our entire stay, Ilsa was friendly, helpful and very accommodating.

The studio was roomy with a good sized bathroom and walk in closet. Beach towels, toiletries, a hair dryer, iron, ironing board and safe are provided. The full size kitchen was well stocked and allowed you to cook if you desired. The private patio with a beautiful view of the ocean comes complete with chairs, a table and lounger.

Oscar, who takes care of the grounds and building maintenance, stopped by personally each day to check if everything was okay and if asked, would get you a fresh coconut from the property. After his work day was complete, Oscar would often stop by for a visit on the patio and shoot the breeze.

Our cleaning lady, Beulah, was a real sweetie, who always made sure you had clean towels and bedding. Our room was always nicely cleaned despite being right on the beach.

Miramar Apartments is located in Placencia Village within easy walking distance to several restaurants, bars, grocery stores, bakeries, produce stands and shops. This is a great place to stay, only made better because of the warm, welcoming service from Ilsa, Beulah and Oscar.

A huge group of us stayed here for a wedding two weeks ago. Everything was perfect. If there was a problem it was fixed. Bula helped us keep our huge 3 bedroom "party" suite clean ad ever and our beach front view was amazing. Convienant location to everything especially to get shrimp at "Espadas Yard" ! Stay here especially if you have a good large group.

We chose Miramar Apartments to accommodate our wedding party for 1 week, and we had our ceremony on the beach. Miramar was the perfect location with the perfect people running it. Rooms were very flarge and clean, adorably decorated, and had well stocked kitchens with all the utensils and dishes you could want. Good water pressure, air conditioning worked perfectly, and the private ocean-front beach is beautiful and well groomed! Raked and cleaned daily, we had some great times on this beach - lots of beach chairs and a large palapa to sit underneath if you wanted to escape the sun.

The staff are exceptionally kind and friendly, they went above and beyond for us. Ilsa has been helpful and sweet since day 1 when we started planning our stay and continued to be wonderfully helpful during our time there. Bula took exceptional care of our rooms, and Oscar was fantastic - especially on the wedding day when he took great care to ensure the beach was absolutely perfect.

A great location, Miramar is within walking distance of all town's highlights and is surprisingly quiet and peaceful at night despite being so close to town. Beautiful balconies and hammocks provided the perfect atmosphere for fun nights with friends, we wouldn't change a thing about this place. Really appreciated the cleanliness and security. Combined with great value for price and a solid wifi connection, this has become an instant favorite and we highly recommend it.

We just returned home last night from Placenica. We stayed at Miramar apartments and had a studio apartment on the beach. We arrived rather late, but Ilsa was there to greet us and so was Oscar, the on site security manager, he lives on the property.

Ilsa made sure we were settled in before going home; we didn't arrive until after 7pm. Oscar helped to find us a place to grab a light bite to eat after a long day of travel, and we wanted conch, he called a few places and gave us some bikes that they have on property and sent us off to "Grill 'n Go".

The staff at Miramar aim to please and they are so very wonderful to deal with. Our studio was clean and had a very well stocked kitchen, and the there were plenty of bath towels and shampoo/conditioner, soaps and beach towels. They also provide a hair dryer and and an ironing board/iron. There is a beach restaurant about 30 yards from Miramar, very convenient and very good for breakfast. They also serve lunch and dinner, but we didn't make it over there for anything except breakfast. We came in on a Wednesday and they aren't open on Wednesday's at all.

There is a market at the top of the street that probably has everything you might need or want. I really enjoyed our stay here. I only wish I could have spent a bit more time on the property! We went diving every day and we were absent all day most of the week. Oscar informed us to not leave anything on our patio, as anyone walking along the beach could easily come by and steal things. He walks the property frequently and is diligent about shooing off the hawkers and interlopers. We had no problems with anything that we left out to dry, even when left out overnight.

Great place, not fancy, but very relaxing and welcoming. If I return to Placencia, Miramar will be my first choice for accomodations.

Room Tip: studios are on the beach, the one room apts are beyond the sidewalk and not directly beachfront.
