There was only one room left when we booked into this hotel so it is not surprising the room was not the nicest. It was right next to the restaurant and on a pathway to the office so not very private and the bed seemed uneven. That said, the bungalows and other suites look very nice indeed. This hotel has...

Reviewed 17 November 2016

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 outstanding. If you're like me, you would probably thing "They paid someone to write these....

I stayed there for four nights, using it mainly as a base for diving. The staff were all very friendly and professional; Marlon in the reception was particularly helpful. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was inventive. The flush mechanism in my loo broke down the morning I was to leave. Marlon was able...

This is a wonderful place for either couples, Friends, or families. Each little hotel room is clean and they are right on the beautiful beach. Food at restaurant is delicious! Staff couldn't be nicer.

Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro is an amazing place to stay! We stayed in the Dreamsicle Studio next to the Bistro. The studio was very nice and cleaned every day. We can't say enough good things about the hotel, bistro and especially the staff. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely stay here...

Very helpful staff. Organized our snorkeling adventures and guided us through all our needs for shopping and dinning. Room was excellent and we loved the hammocks everywhere. We enjoyed the use of SUPs right on the beach and my 7 year wound down in the pool every night. Grocery store is in walking distance and snorkling /diving trips are just...

Loved staying at the Maya Beach Hotel. Owners and staff are incredibly accommodating and friendly. Rooms were well appointed, cozy and clean! The Bistro has wonderfully fresh dishes (good selections for vegetarians). We liked it so much we stayed 2 additional nights.

My wife and I stayed 3 days in the Hibiscus Room. The room is small, so if you want to spread all of your stuff out, you will not be able to. Otherwise, it was sufficient and comfortable. Who spends much time in their room on vacation, anyways? The room is literally 90 feet from the ocean and right around...

The Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro has a great restaurant which is reviewed elsewhere. The same organization owns and operates a mixed set of hotel accommodations around the bistro. The rooms were built at different times, so there is no uniform description. Some are on the second floor of the bistro area, some are free standing bungalows (where we stayed)...

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 queen beds, our king suites have king beds and kitchenettes 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
