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,...

We stayed at the Maya Beach hotel 2 years ago and found it to be relaxing, friendly, and the restaurant, delicious. When we were considering a warm weather getaway this year we decided to return. This time we stayed at the Joya del Mar, the vacation rental that the Maya Beach manages. Didn't fail to impress. The place is clean...

The constant warm breeze flowing thru our beach cabana was the perfect remedy for the ice and snow we left in PA. Waking up each morning to the sun rising over the ocean cannot be beat. Loved, loved, loved Marlon, who was right on every need that we had during our stay. The linens and pillows on the bed were...

I got busy with a few things this fall, and didn't get plans cemented for a family vacation. Belize, and specifically Placencia, looked like a nice choice, but when I started looking for accommodations, it seemed virtually everything was filled. When we contacted the management checking on another property, we were told it was full, but that the Maya Apartment...

Maya Beach Hotel is a smallish hotel situated right on the beach, a perfect distance from Placencia town proper. We stayed for four days and three nights in early December while we were in town for the End of The World half-marathon. Clean and comfortable, with friendly, helpful staff, this is the perfect place to kick back and relax. I...

My boyfriend and I discovered this lovely hotel by chance while lost on our first arrival at Placencia, first day in Belize. We stopped at Maya Beach to ask for directions to the hotel we had booked in town and were warmly oriented by Ellen.

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
