We spent three days at Maya Beach Hotel and loved every minute of it. It's a cozy hotel and the staff is so friendly. We were greeted by Ellen at arrival and she saw to our every need. Her staff follows her lead. We stayed in the Coconut Room, which is a two bedroom suite and perfect for a family...

We stayed here for two nights after a sailing trip down the Cayes, and despite its distance from Placencia proper (it's actually in Maya Beach, which we should have guessed from the name) it is a great choice if visiting the peninsula. We were warmly greeted by the owner upon our arrival and brought to our rooms, which were all...

Stayed here with my family over the Christmas holidays, in one of the guest cottages affiliated with the hotel -- agua villa. The first thing that really stood out is the food. The restaurant, run by the hotel, was uniformly superb. Really a cut above and reasonably priced. The proprietors are wine enthusiasts and every night there was a great...

We stayed here in December 2013 for the Placencia Marathon & Half Marathon (http://www.runbelize.org/). We had a lovely visit and really enjoyed the food. The place was well maintained and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were lots of options for things to do on the peninsula. We would definitely return!

We only got to stay at Maya Beach Hotel for one night, as we were in Placencia for a sailboat cruise. But we really enjoyed our time there. The food was yummy, the room was clean and comfortable (just a junior room), and the owners were very friendly. The beach area was really nice and perfect for relaxing (and a...

We stayed at the Flip Flop Palace and thoroughly relished being able to walk right on onto the beach and look at the gorgeous Caribbean. We loved having a kitchen up there and a little living room. It really was just right for us. Though we found out the kitchen really wasn't needed because THE FOOD AT MAYA BEACH HOTEL...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review! We're glad you enjoyed it here and hope you come back. When you do, keep in mind that our new king cabanas have king beds instead of queens, so your tall hubby will have more room to stretch out. :) We especially appreciate your comments about the Bistro. Thanks again!

We stayed for 3 nights before boarding a catamaran for a week. They sent a taxi to pick us up at the airport and had arranged for our hopper flight from Belize.

A review that is overdue. My husband and I headed to Belize a few days ahead of our college age children. We choose the Maya Beach as the place we would stay. Long drive from Belize City, but so worth it! The view is amazing and what a beach! We had dinner the first night at the Maya Beach restaurant....

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
