Go Slow So That You Have Time To Enjoy Amanda's Place
"There were 8 people that stayed for 2 weeks at Amanda's Place and everyone had a good time and enjoyed the hospitality of the island. Actually one couple ended up adopting a little dog from the shelter who had a tough journey in his life. Amanda was real helpful in expediting his trip back to the states. Amanda was real helpful with any other questions or needs that we had. The two weeks went fast but was pleasant for the most part. The pool was a plus too. We all spent a lot of time around there.
The only negative things that we noticed was the noise late at night since her place was right on the street. The blinds in the bedrooms really didn't block out the light from the streets. Could use a little updating of kitchen pots and pans. Overall, the place was enjoyable and we would stay there again."

"My wife and I just spent a wonderful week in Belize, and our only complaint is that we didn't plan to stay longer. The apartment and grounds are beautiful. The pictures give you a good indication, but if anything the reality is even nicer. Placencia Village has lots of nice restaurants to choose from, and Belize has an amazing variety of things to do between snorkeling, fishing, jungle excursions and wildlife, Mayan sites to explore, waterfalls, and much more. Janis was very helpful in recommending what we needed to bring, and guides for excursions and fly fishing. We definitely plan to return, and will stay longer next time."

"There was a group of 12 of us coming from different places and everyone had a great time at the house. First, I think the place itself was probably a little nicer than the pics - very spacious, lots of bedrooms for different couples/families, etc.. So it worked out well for multiple families. I think location is nice as well since its on the southside which is generally quieter.
What made the trip very enjoyable for us was Eddie & Ralph. They were with us whenever we needed them and helped us plan out our activities and was patient with the different opinions from the varying group members. Eddie and George were able to do a personalized snorkel/dive trip that accommodated all of the swim levels which was nice. Eddie also helped us immensely with all the basics (golf carts, groceries, etc..).
We had one of the A/Cs go out in one of the rooms and Ralph spent 1/2 a day with an electrician making sure it was working for us the next night. Very awesome! Eddie - thanks again for all the help; we really enjoyed our trip.
Probably the only downside was that there was no beachfront to walk on or place to swim in the ocean (very dirty/seaweed heavy, etc..). I think most places on the island are like that, but it would have been nice to be able to swim.
Definitely highly recommend the place for larger groups and"

"I don't have enough great words to say about our Honeymoon Trip to Casa B'Alam! The house was exactly what we were looking for, private, accommodating for lounging and cooking in, but very easy access by both water and road. We used the bikes provided every morning to explore and ended up renting a golf cart through Mata Granda Grocery on our 3rd day so that it was a easy/fast trek to town when need be. The 2 person kayak provided was also a nice afternoon ride out to the reef for snorkeling and swimming around the sand bars. We enjoyed food at both Rojo Bar and Portofino, as well as the groceries for home cooking from Mata Grande. Aurora's Grill at Mata Grande is also an excellent stop for cold beers and good homemade food. Everyone on the island is super friendly. Our house staff - Romel, was very friendly and became a fast friend whom we hope to see again. Brittany was great answering all of my questions prior to arrival and also sending out a new blender! We will definitely be coming back to Casa B'Alam!"
