Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Awesome Place!

    "The three of us stayed in this condo for 15 days. It was very comfortable, spacious and quiet. There are three bathrooms in the condo. The showers were huge, and so were the bathtubs. The outdoor furniture was used quite a bit. The location was perfect. The condos are located right on the beach. The infinity pool was beautiful. The view was great. The staff was awesome. The office staff was very helpful and went out of their way to help us arrange for a car, a golf cart as well as tours. The outdoor staff was very friendly and even helped us get some fresh coconut water. The condo came with two bikes which we used several times to go to the village. The place was very quiet but also very friendly. The village was great for restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and an ice cream parlor. The pier was great for fishing. The taxi drivers were very accommodating and very friendly. We hope to return to Belize someday!!"
