"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"Guest: Gary W.

"Ocean’s Edge is a wonderful place. My husband and I have enjoyed this place on several occasions. The beach is very private (as we like to lay out nude) and the house is very comfortable. It is so much fun to sit on the beach and watch the wildlife during the day and in the evening when the raccoons come to feed on bread that we leave out. If you are looking for a quiet and private place, with beautiful flowers and vegetation…Ocean’s Edge is the place for you. The owners Mike and Frankie are great to work with as well as the property managers. We have always rented a car and driven to Ocean’s Edge. It is a beautiful drive and Belize is a safe country to travel. The owners have a notebook filled things to see and do, so come and enjoy the hidden treasures of Belize….what a beautiful place!! ? We recommend the Monkey River Tour as well as Cyrila’s Chocolate, this is a great adventure back in time when chocolate was made totally by hand and the owners are wonderful."Guest: Mike & Virginia Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 9, 2014View listing
"We arrived short notice during low season and Janis was super accommodating. Francisco, the caretaker, was pleasant and very helpful, and Alfred was really a gem! First time to Belize, 2nd accommodation and we couldn't have planned it any better. The coconuts falling from the trees startled us at first but once Alfred showed us how to open them they became a treat. I hope we get back to this place and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!"Guest: llorrenzo Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 27, 2014View listing
