Totally enjoyed our stay in the Jaguar room. Watched the sunrise every morning from the comfort of our bed. Only sand, palm trees and water between us and sunrise. The staff was friendly and helpful. Their restaurant has excellent food and good service. Be sure to order drinks and appetizers to take out to the covered dock. Lay in a...

Maya Beach Hotel is "THE PERFECT PLACE" to rest and unwind! We booked the Joya Del Mar Main Apartment, which is very spacious and more than enough room for 2 people. It has a comfy king size bed, large ensuite bath with a powerful shower, full kitchen and large living room area. It does have AC, which is a nice...

Our family enjoyed 7 days at the Maya Beach Hotel. The first two days were quite rainy, with torrential downpours several times a day. Thankfully the weather improved which made our stay absolutely delightful. In the rain, there is not much to do and not a very comfortable dry place to hang out. The town of Placencia is a good...

Thanks Tara and family! We're happy you enjoyed yourselves here. Maintenance has just checked out the problem you referred to and it turns out we have a couple of Mexican Hairy Porcupines spending time under the balcony! We have evicted them and blocked the apparent entrance so the cute (albeit stinky) little guys will find a tree instead. Thanks for...

We spent 6 days there, unfortunately the weather was not very good but we still managed to keep ourselves busy, as the guys at reception organise several tours for the guests. We went snorkeling twice at some distant Cayes, we did a chocolate and spice tour (which I would recommend) and we even got sporty and got a kayak and...

Yes, all the reviews are true! The property is lovely and the vibe is laid back. The staff is professional and friendly, there when you need them but not intrusive. We went over the Christmas Holidays and though busy, no detail was ever overlooked. We booked the Hibiscus room (it was one of the only rooms available because we booked...

The Maya Beach Hotel was our first stop during our 11 days in Belize, and it may have spoiled us for hotels that we stayed in for the rest of the trip. Our vacation began with a pickup at the Placencia Airport by Nestor, who gave us a great introduction to Belize during the 20 minute drive to the hotel....

We stayed in the King Tide cottage which was a very short distance to the beach. The setting is so lovely and tranquil. From beginning to end our total experience was delightful. Our room was great, very clean and modern with a full kitchen. The staff was exceptional! I highly recommend the Maya Beach Hotel. We ate most meals at...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a small mid-range beach resort for couples who need comfort, but not luxury. Our hotel rooms are air conditioned with king or queen beds and nice beach views, and we also offer some beach house rentals in different price ranges. Our Bistro and swimming pool are a gathering place at the end of a day filled with snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, jungle hiking, spelunking, climbing Maya ruins, or just plain relaxing on the beach. The restaurant was also has also been awarded "Restaurant of the Year" twice by the Belize Tourism Board, and it remains a highlight of a stay here. ... more   less
