  • 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."

  • Beatiful scenery, relaxing setting and friendly people

    "Really enjoyed staying at this condo which was well-equipped, stylish and clean. The view from the balcony was amazing especially for morning coffee. Both the beach and pool were great places to enjoy the day. The building was quiet but it's only a short 20 minute walk to the village for great restaurants and nightlife. Would be great for two couples as the rooms have their own bathrooms and are private. Also a great place for a family as it's a safe distance from the village and the beach and pool are close and visible from the condo balcony. A great escape from Alberta winters!"

  • Sunset Pointe Placencia, a highlight of our trip to belize

    "We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Placencia...the condo was just as described ...beautiful and clean! The on-site manager was polite, respectful, very helpful and accomodating! The location is perfect with wonderful views from two breezy decks, a great pool and a short walk or quick ride to town! It was the best of both worlds...Fransisco helped us with anything we needed while we were there and our booking couldn't have been easier...the owners graciously worked with us to make a slight change to our lodging due to some outside work begin completed. Took a wonderful tour of the howler Monkeys that started by boat at Sunset Point. The guide was fantastic! We definitely would recommend Sunset Pointe for both couples or families as the two bedrooms each with their own bathroom gave us plenty of personal space and the second bedroom would be perfect for a couple with children. The owner was very gracious in helping us to make arrangement prior to our arrival in Placencia with wonderful advice which we heeded. Belize is a quite a place and we have many more spots that we want to discover so we will be going back again sometime next year. Thanks again for your hospitality and the friendly atmosphere we enjoyed at Sunset. Hope to see you again! Take care, GW & MW-Hampton, NH, USA"
