I was dismayed to see that I never reviewed this cute little establishment; our visit here was almost a year ago! Sorry for the delay, and here goes: The Maya Beach Hotel is a lovely, quirky, "boutique" hotel, located directly on the beach. Owned by an American/Australian couple (Ellen and John), the hotel features a few large rooms, an extremely...

Just 10 minutes north of the town of Placencia, this is a great hotel to do some day tours or excursions and then enjoy the restaurant on the beach. It is clear most of their focus is on the food and restaurant presentation (great coconut encrusted fish) however the rooms are very comfortable and offer a sea breeze too at...

We stayed in the King Conch room for the last three nights of our honeymoon. After four days out in the mountain pine ridge we were ready for some relaxation, sun, and great food. Everything exceeded our expectations. I booked this place after considering both the reviews on this site and a review from Fodor's, and I do believe Fodor's...

My 8th trip to Belize, and have stayed in most of the really nice resorts and lots of places that were just cheap beds for the night. On this trip, we came from a three night stay at Caves Branch @ $300 each/night all inclusive. A friend and I booked a room at Maya Beach to visit a friend who...

I stayed for 6 nights at Maya Beach Hotel in late January. Not only is the best food in this part of downstairs or across the beach in the Bistro Restaurant; but the beach is lovely, the palapa on the dock a perfect place to read and the hotel rooms comfortable and clean. I swam the calm water bay and...

We booked here entirely based on Tripadvisor's rating. The only room available was the Hibiscus room. We booked 3 nights (we arrived a day late so only stayed for 2 - we called a few days ahead to try to get a refund for the first night, but they wouldn't.... whatever, no biggie). The girl at the front desk was...

The Maya Beach was exactly the paradise my husband and I were looking for when choosing a winter vacation. Even before our arrival the staff was amazing, arranging air travel and side trips for us. The resort is not actually in the village of Placencia, rather about a 15 minute car ride away. We didn't mind this at all since...

After 4 trips to see family out in Belize this is still our favourite place. Even busier than before they have established an ideal combination of venue , ambience and good quality food. The Sunday Brunch is always popular, and they are welcoming to non residents for use of pool/beach area. Desserts a speciality, but go quite hungry!

I rented the lower level Dreamsicle House with some friends and couldn't have been happier. The location was great, a little out of town but right on a gorgeous, quiet beach with a nice pool and plenty of lounge chairs. They also offer complimentary bikes and kayaks. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the restaurant was as good as...

We stayed for 6 nights in the Kingfish Suite. It was just amazing. Beautifully decorated, huge bathroom with walk-in shower, and a kitchenette-which we never used, but was nice if you had the desire. The ocean was probably 50 steps from the porch of the bungalow. Truly wonderful. The entire resort was really nice, the pool was a bit small,...

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
