What a great menu. We chose two appetizers each! Shrimp stuffed octopus was a hit. Seriously, try it and you won't be disappointed. The dining room is right on the beach, so the view and the breeze are divine. We had driven from the city...More
I had the pleasure of spending my 35th birthday at the Maya Beach Hotel in Placencia.
Several months ago, I decided I wanted to go to Belize but had no idea where to stay. I searched online and TripAdvisor recommended the hotel. The reviews were...More

We had an amazing time at Maya Beach Hotel. We had a beautiful room (the apartment). It had 3 bedrooms with air conditioning in each one, a huge kitchen, family area (with a large sectional) and an amazing deck.

There is a small shuttle airport on Placencia, that you can fly into and out of to BZE. I can't tell you about rental cars but if you are staying on the peninsula I would recommend a golf cart (yes, they are allowed on the road but be back before dark because there are no street lights and it is very dark). Consider hiring a car and driver if you want to travel around for a day or two or take a tour to the various sights. We stayed in the Flip Flop Palace at the Maya Beach Hotel (they can help with transportation to/from the airport). Maya Beach hotel is NOT a big, glitzy hotel but small, very nice and quiet (read the reviews). We stayed there for 10 days. The restaurant is the best in the area and is a short beach walk. There are 4 rooms in the Flip Flop Palace, 2 upper and 2 lower. We stayed in #2 upper, if you want to be on the beach take a lower. There is a scuba shop in town that has very nice scuba/snorkle trips (you can swim with nurse shark).

We used Splash DIve Center and every detail was perfect! Patty and her staff have several boats and customized the dive for us. My husband and I love to hunt Lionfish so we had our own divemaster and they took us to sites where we were able to remove over 30 Lionfish on 2 dives. The lunch on the island was excellent and the Divemasters filleted the Lionfish for us and The Bistro at Maya Beach prepared them for Dinner. My husband and I are both Dive Instructors and have worked in the industry for more than 10 years, so we are pretty critical and safety conscious and Splash was really outstanding. I reviewed them as well here on tripadvisor, January 3,2017.
