The family is Oh so sweet and I highly recommend you stay here. Don't miss this place. As a solo traveler I met...

Stayed at Jama's for a couple days. The dorm set up like Japanese capsules was the most comfortable nights in Belize. Hot shower, air-conditioning all included. Location is fine, just get off the bus at University of Belize stop and walk 5 minutes. The bar restaurant area is really relaxing.. ideal place to enjoy PG

Germaine and Jama have worked hard to set up a comfortable, well equipped hostel and hotel, plus what is probably the best bar in town. You'd think noise would be a problem but Punta Gorda is a pretty quiet spot. The only reason I didn't give A Piece Of Ground 5 stars is location, but they can't do anything about...

The rooms are fresh and clean, roof top views gives you view of all of PG and the sea. Great atmosphere, good food, good music, the folks are down to earth, and have positive vibes. A great place to relax and hang. Germaine and Jama know the lay of the land and can get you plugged into whatever you're looking...

I've been using Jama and Germaine's 'A Piece of Ground' down in Punta Gorda Town in southern Belize as my base camp for that last few years. It's a clean hotel/hostel, convenient, affordable and tucked away at the back of PG. They have great food at 'A Piece of Chicken Restaurant and Bar' and the Belikin beer's are always cold....

The American "Jama" knows what a western tourist needs to feel at home during sunrise, lunch and sunset. The accommodations are extremely wonderful, a/c, hot water, great foods and clean. Need anything to get around? Jama knows!

I ended up booking this hostel on the hostel world app at Belize immigration because I didn't realise you needed to have proof of accommodation before you could cross the border (FYI, you need proof of 3 nights accommodation or onward journey when entering via boat from Guatemala!!). I needed to book something immediately so I could show my proof...

This will be one of my "few and far in between" reviews of any place I've ever stayed, and I've stayed ALOT of places. Been traveling a lot of years and only once or twice have I been compelled to comment in such favorable fashion about a place I've stayed at. I know, I'm bad. I've been tired. Anyway, as...
