Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • AMAZING!

    "We loved everything about our stay... the grounds are breathtaking and 8B is the PERFECT unit with beautiful views of the beach and the ocean. The unit was well stocked in the kitchen with utensils and dishes, a coffee maker, and full sized fridge. The bedrooms were spacious and with an attached bath for each, they were perfect. Placencia is a quiet town, but has great restaurants to try. The groundskeepers are very pleasant and always ensuring that the property is in pristine shape. I look forward to coming back to Los Porticos again in the future!"

  • Relaxing Get Away

    "This beach house is perfect for those wanting to get away from the hotel crowd and have privacy. Perfectly suited for a relaxing vacation and has everything from fishing gear to kayaks and even a small fishing boat. Carmen made sure we had everything we needed or if we had any questions he was just a phone call away. Junior took us out for a day of fishing and lobster hunting. He also took us on a tour of the money river both excursions were awesome and much less than the tour companies. The palapa over the water was nice and relaxing for fishing or just hanging out. The house keeper and her husband Ellsworth were also just a phone call away if we needed anything. If you are looking for a worry free vacation I highly recommend Carmen's Place we could not have enjoyed our stay more and will definable stay again."

  • Paradise found and then some!

    "Gail and Paul have certainly created a paradise in Placencia. We traveled with another couple and had a wonderful time exploring the village, cooking delicious meals in the villa’s well-stocked and modern kitchen, and relaxing by the pool and palapa’s (yes, there’s more than one!). After spending the first part of our trip sailing around the Caye’s, the villa was a great place to unwind in comfort. Gail and Paul are incredibly helpful and kind – you couldn’t find friendlier people in Belize. Paul gave us the lay of the land – the good markets, restaurants, and shops to stop-in. And Gail arranged everything from dinner reservations to a car rental for us. We feel lucky to have experienced Starfish Villa and can’t wait to come back and visit again!"

  • More than we expected

    "I have to say that our hosts are very gracious. Jim picked us up at the airport and then showed us around town before taking us to our place. When we walked into our waterfront studio we were stunned. It was beautiful and very spacious. Our hosts further provided a cell phone with numbers already on the phone. They also provided the transportation upon leaving to the airport. This was more than generous of them to take the time with this. The studio has a full kitchen, with living room area available. Laundry facilities right on site in fact just out your door. The bed and bedding are clean and comfortable. There is a queen bed, one single and a double futon. You will have a private deck or you can sit out on the pier and lounge or swim. They provide beach towels, kayaks, bicycles, and it has a safe for your valuables. While we were there the birds were nesting and we had their music to wake up to with baby birds leaving their nests. ( A little noisy but we enjoyed) It is only minutes to downtown but I would suggest that you get a cart if you are going to go to town often especially if it is during the day (between 9 am and 5pm) It is very hot. We walked (which is not far or hard) but if you do that make sure to do it early or later in the afternoon when the sun is going down. And take your water.... The views from the deck or pier are of the canal and mangroves it is a beautiful setting to just enjoy. We actually only went to town if needed for groceries, eating out, or on a trip. We spent a couple of days just lounging on the pier. Truly restful. The sunsets are spectacular. We were there during Easter weekend and thankfully this property is not located in the downtown area, so downtown noise does not disturb your peace. Make sure to have your bug spray because early morning or at dusk the no see ums and the mosquitoes come out. But to be truthful we did not suffer from them too much. It was about 20 minute walk to Yoli's where we caught DaytripperDan for the catamaran snorkeling trip. About 10 minute walk to the M&M gas station to catch Barebones Monkey River trip with Percy And we were picked up and dropped off at our personal pier by Mark from Cayequest for a snorkeling trip to Pumpkin Caye How could it get any better than that. Trust me when I say this was a gem of a place and I truly appreciate the care our hosts took in our welfare. I hope to go back again. Thank you Jim and Cindy for a fabulous vacation...."
