Recent Placencia Peninsula reviews

  • Comfortable place, convenient and quiet location

    "If you are looking for a place with all the amenities that is convenient but away from the crowds this is the place. Located on the canal enjoyed morning breezes with coffee on the swinging bench or hammock. Easy walk to town and to Warren Garbutt Sunny Side Tours (diving and snorkeling). Had a great time in Placencia and having a home away from home was most enjoyable!"

    "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!"

  • EPIC Vacation at the SPECTACULAR Typsy Gecko!!

    "I wanted a special location to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and Typsy Gecko exceeded my expectations and "WOW'ed" my husband. The owner was SO helpful, very responsive with information and answering all of my questions. She even helped me plan special events for my husband. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so kind and Javier picked us up in an air conditioned, comfy van. When we entered the house, it takes your breath away. The pictures are beautiful but like the old saying goes "it doesn't do it justice". Every room was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and complete with everything you would need - and more! Mable had prepared a delicious punch and a beautiful flower arrangement. Step outside into absolute paradise! The patio, the pool, the beach, the pier.....I can go on and on. Everything was pristine clean and as you try to take everything in, you're already figuring how many days you get to soak it all in before having to go home. Within minutes of arriving, we were in the pool, drinking punch and didn't have to do anything but start relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff - Javier, Mabel, Domingo, Mickey, the groundskeeper, housekeeper, pool guy - everyone so warm and friendly and GENUINELY want to ensure you are having a good time. Mabel and Domingo helped me plan the most memorable night for my husband with a candlelight dinner on the pier that was like a scene in a romantic movie - indescribable! My husband said he will never forget that night. Mabel was so helpful in helping us with the tours that were perfect for what we were wanting. We did 2 snorkeling tours with Splash - one to Silk Caye and the other to Laughing Bird Caye. Silk Caye has amazing snorkeling - we saw too many things to write in this review and capped the day off by swimming with the nurse sharks, sting rays and sea turtles. Laughing Bird Caye was a prettier Caye but didn't have as much sea life as Silk Caye - at least the day we were there. The meals prepared by Domingo and Mickey were delicious, plentiful, beautifully presented and ooohhhh the deserts! They were so accommodating as to what time we wanted to the meals. Domingo even did our grocery shopping for us! The pier is a perfect place to relax, read, sleep - Chillax! The paddle boards and kayaks were fun to use and explore the area. The golf cart was a perfect mode of transportation - no need to rent a car. We can't wait to return - this place is amazing!!!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "This was our first trip to Belize. Having never been it's a little hard to decide where stay and didn't really know what to expect. We didn't want big crowds so we chose the Placencia penninsula. As a family of 5 we opt for house rentals instead of hotels. It was very easy to book with Ken and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you need 5 star resorts, this isn't the place. But if you want clean, affordable, well-equipped, and in a great location, this is perfect! Maya Beach turned out to be ideal because we could walk to the local store and a few restaurants. We had a rental car so it was an easy drive into Placencia and we were able to get to other activities like hiking in Cockscomb and cave tubing/ziplining. The home itself had everything we needed. The beach is kept clean and it was so quiet that we felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. The porch isn't screened anymore and the kayaks next door are only available for rent and not included. There isn't much to see in the water off the beach but the water was so warm we just didn't mind. We went snorkeling out at Laughing Bird Caye one day. We had a few power outages from storms and the home didn't have any supplies for that but we were able to get a candle from a neighbor. The lightening storms were a show all by themselves! We were very happy with our stay and enjoyed a wonderful week of family time."
