Recent Maya Beach reviews

  • Amazing Condo, Authentic Cultural Experience and Access to Water

    "There were two couples in our group and right from the start, we were impressed with the location of the resort, the beautiful interior and exterior of the three buildings, the pool and the pier. We did not know what to expect since this was a new rental and there were no reviews to read yet. We LOVED the place. We were treated well by Herbert, who coordinated the rental for us. Placencia is the town about 20 minutes away and we highly recommend booking a few excursions from there. But the best restaurants are in Maya Beach which is about 10 minutes away, north of the resort. We lucked out and received a detailed list of best restaurants and sites to see from our neighbors in the condo building. In Placencia, be sure to eat at Omar's where the fish is FRESH and it is BYOB. We also highly recommend the Maya Beach Bistro!! The only sad aspect is the poverty of many of the people - there is no real middle class in Belize. But the people are very kind and friendly. Other must's include snorkeling at one of the Cayes and tubing down the river at the Jaguar sanctuary (which can be done on your own if you have rented a car). The area is very casual (no one wears high heals or dresses up) so be sure to bring the right clothing, including an umbrella for the short rain showers. Don't expect to shop much, at least in that area, but if you do go shopping, you will find beautiful bead jewelry and hardwood bowls."

  • Terrifically Adorable!

    "Casa Beya was great. Read MUST at end. Caretakers Martin & Diana were willing to help with anything (phone calls, shopping, cleaning, cooking). Manager Midge emailed us a shopping list so we could stock the refrigerator. Kayaks, paddle boards and bikes! Decks, beach, hammocks & pier - great for lounging. The Maya Beach Bistro, just down the beach had the best food on the Peninsula,:coffee, breakfast, lunch & dinner, and you can use their pool. Rumfish in town was also a good place to eat. For lunch and night life, Tispy Tuna and Barefoot bars. You do need a car to get around, not a golf cart. There was a grocery store nearby but the best fruit stands (selection) are in Placencia near Rumfish. If you want fresh conch, fish, lobster, head to the docks about 3:00. There is a great locally made jewelry store across from Rumfish. Recommend hiking Antelope falls in Bocawina Rainforest. We rented a car from Barefoot rentals, which was a junker and eventually broke down the day before we left but they were nice enough to give us a ride to the airport for our flight and not charge us for not refueling the tank. If you need a large car for many passengers, you may want to rent in Belize City. We needed a car for 7 and Barefoot was the only one who could provide one. If you are interested in scuba diving, I recommend you say in San Pedro on Ambergris Cay instead. The boat ride to the best diving areas off Placencia are 1 hour and brutal (the boat driver goes full ahead and you are pounding the waves). Diving/snorkeling the "inner reefs" is not worth the price. Don't sign up for a manatee tour unless it's in the lagoon. Seagrape house can be rental with Casa Beya for a larger group. It has larger rooms, a screen porch and ping pong table. You MUST take precautions against the sand fleas. I took vitamin B12 staring a week before the trip and was slightly bitten. The others in my group did not take it and WERE bitten and suffered. Regular bug spray does not work. Coconut oil does. Read online for what else works. DO NOT try to pick up the fruit juicer with it's top on. It comes off and the container falls and you spill all the juice! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked. I'm a private Chef so that is a great compliment! If you are into cooking, bring your own chef's knife. We would recommend this place and stay their again. Enjoy!"
