We can not say enough about how wonderful our week at swan villa was with our three adult children and their spouses ! Rudy and Montse were terrifically responsive to our questions and needs throughout our planning to come and during our stay !
The house is a beautifully designed and constructed organic architecture home that suits four couples very well with privacy and a communal living space. Views are exquisite - pool and gardens gorgeous. House is unusual , beautiful and comfortable !
Tons of adventures await visitors : the best snorkeling and diving anywhere is the world , fishing , incredible caving adventure at ATM and great hiking at Cockscomb Basin Reserve. Placencia just 15" away has artists , craftspeople , and great restaurants along with great restaurants in Maya Beach close to Swan Villa . Grocery store with everything needed is close by too.
Our best family vacation yet !! Thank you Rudy , Montse and Swan Villa.
My husband and I stayed at Swan Villas for part of our honeymoon. We really liked the hospitality and service that comes with this well appointed vacation rental. Rudy is the property manager for Swan Villas. Let me tell you something, this guy is experienced, professional, knowledgeable, and prompt. We really liked him and all of the help he provided us during our stay. From restaurants to beaches and excursions inland and at sea, Rudy was helpful in leading us into the right direction of things to do during our stay. The property itself is clean, and the salt water infinity pool is exceptional. Do note, this property is on the lagoon side of the peninsula. This side gets less wind, but more mosquitoes in our opinion. They provide you with paddle boards and kayaks to play around with. The interior of the room is bright, modern, and contemporary. Hands down the best shower I have ever used. There are really cool restaurants within walking distance (but, we suggest letting Rudy set you up with a golf kart rental). Our recommendations are Maya Beach Bistro and the Singing Sands for their Korean style BBQ. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and recommend this rental.
I had an awesome time here. It is a minute walk to the beach where you can snorkel and kayak and swim. The actual houses are fantastic and modern and clean. The pool was terrific, and the owner, Rodolfo, was very friendly and always available. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing retreat in a beautiful country.
We travel out of the country at least three times a year and this is the best accommodation we've every experienced!!!!
Service - beyond compare
Style - this goes without saying and the reality of the pictures is unbelievable!!
Cleanliness - this is ever-present...very important to them
SPACE - this unit is HUGE!!
VIEW - breathtaking (even in the shower > that WINDOW!) from all parts of the room. The windows are strategically placed for breeze and for the view
Details - everything you need for comfort/everything you need if you like to eat in
POOL- perfect temperature, perfect view, perfect size, and they take painstaking effort to keep it clean, even using small brushes and snorkels to clean the surfaces!
Extras: These guys are a team that communicates among themselves in such a way that the guest is always taken care of. They remain available via text, call, or during their regular checks on the property. They are "always around" ready and willing to assist and will all go out of their way to provide the ultimate stay here.
We will be back!

The whole stay was 5 nights. It was absolutely perfect. The place had everything we needed. We rented the 2 BR downstairs. There are 2 more 1 BR units upstairs that were occupied by other visitors. It was quiet most of our stay & peaceful.
The host Rudy & his wife were very helpful, and friendly. If we get to return to Maya Beach, we will come back here. It is fairly close to Placencia by bike ride or taxi. A golf cart rental or car rental is recommended. There is great dining at the Maya Beach Hotel Bistro. It is not far from the villa. We also ate at Wendy's in Placencia & had a great experience there.
High points of the accommodations are the pool first of all (outstanding). The view of the lagoon & the mountains is nice also. The bed is very comfortable, & the shower is an experience of its own. The rooms have their own whirlpool tub that work great. Everything was wonderful here.
