Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • Better than the pictures!

    "We have used VRBO many times. Sometimes you don't quite get what you were expecting. However, this place was the real deal. Awesome views, crystal clear pool, cold A/C, clean comfy house and an amazing palapa on the lagoon. We had coffee on the balcony every morning and fished from the dock every night. Dolphins and manatees cruised by but we never saw the famous Croc. Dan was helpful and easy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a week. There are many beaches, bars and restaurants within a 15 minute walk. Maya Bistro and Mango's were by far the best. We decided to rent a golf cart and it came in quite handy. We cruised the entire peninsula in slow motion and it was so relaxing. The roads felt very safe. We were able to enjoy some of the Placencia night life without always having to call a taxi. The only problem we had was booking tours. The giude that was recommended (Alrin) was a complete joke. We'd book a fishing trip with him, he'd call at the lat minute to cancel and leave us hanging with no other options. We would run across the street to The Green Parrot and Leo would squeeze us on a trip or tour last minute. I'd recommend leaving Alrin out of the picture and just let Leo set things up for you. Alrin acually had the nerve to call me for the third day in a row, yell at me and cancel again. I know we had a few windy days that weren't good for reef fishing, but he could have taken us fishing on the lagoon or to the Monkey River. We ended up having his brother Efar take us on the Monkey River tour and I think that really pissed him off. But hey, I'm not going to force you to take my money... there are plenty of other awesome guides that work hard to please their clients. Even though we never got to fish on the reef, the trip was a great success. The snorkeling out there was phenomenal. Go slow and enjoy!"

  • escape from winter

    "Our stay in this beach house far exceeded our expectations in every regard! The owner has gone to great extent to ensure that you have all the comforts of home. He has thought of everything. The home is even more beautiful and luxurious than the pictures. It is clean and well-kept and has plenty of towels, linens, great appliances, and cook ware. It is a great location – private and peaceful. The beach and palapa are exquisite. Words just don’t do it justice. You truly feel like you’ve landed in paradise. We drove in from the airport in Belize City with very good directions from the owner with no trouble, although it’s best to do it in the daytime as there is a lot to see. A highlight for sure was the day spent fishing, diving, and visiting the Cayes with the guide. It was simply fantastic - something not to be missed. The bounty of fish, lobster, crab and conch we caught provided several 5 star meals!! There’s a great barbeque grill to use also. We used the owner’s excellent fishing gear and snorkeling equipment to explore the ocean right at the house and saw crab, conch, sand dollars, many varieties of fish, jelly fish, and ray of some kind! There is also a great stash of DVDs if you want to relax with a movie at the end of your day. There is a market and excellent bistro about ten minutes from the house and the charming village of Placencia is only a few miles further down the road. The Belizean people we met were delightful and helpful. Every aspect of our visit was perfect. We were sad to leave and will definitely be back someday"

  • Fabulous condo in Placencia

    "My family stayed in this beautiful condo for a week. It was perfect. When we were not diving, snorkeling, hiking to waterfalls in Jaguar country, we would lounge by the pool, jumping in every 10 minutes to cool off or to just play around with the kids. We had been traveling for a week and a half prior and were pleased to find a beautiful kitchen, plenty of stores, fish market and produce stands in town a quick cab ride away. We rode the bikes or walked into town easily. The property was dreamy. I felt like we walked into paradise with fresh flowers everywhere. The other residents/guests were so friendly and helpful."

  • A true slice of heavan

    "Even all the glowing reviews don't do this condo justice! Really amazing find. The condo has everything and as others have said, immaculate! With docks just a few steps from the condo, you can watch sunrise on one, sunset on another, and south on another, then not to mention the copollas for a bird's eye view of it all!. Fun going to a place where the toughest decisions is which view you want when. We did two great tours with Alfred who could not be more passionate about sharing his love and knowledge of the area. Francisco and his family were very helpful and always available. Congratulations to their son on his recent graduation! We prefer eating in at night and enjoyed foraging around the sea and village for wonderful and different foods. The kitchen had every need and the open kitchen to living room area was prefect. The owners were so helpful with ideas of things to do and even a recommended packing list with a few things we had not thought of and were very helpful - Please go and enjoy yourselves - I know we did and we look forward to returning again soon."
