Certificate of Excellence
Sitting on a pretty stretch of natural sand beach, the Maya Beach Hotel is a small mid-range beach resort for couples who need comfort, but not luxury. Our hotel rooms are air conditioned with queen beds, our king suites have king beds and kitchenettes and we also offer some beach house rentals in different price ranges. Our Bistro and swimming pool are a gathering place at the end of a day filled with snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, jungle hiking, spelunking, climbing Maya ruins, or just plain relaxing on the beach. The restaurant was also has also been awarded "Restaurant of the Year" twice by the Belize Tourism Board, and it remains a highlight of a stay here.

And the Bistro, can't rave about this place enough. The cinnamon roll french toast and

We stayed in the Toucan Room and I was disappointed with the smaller deck but it was more private than others. The staff was very nice and accommodating. There is an exceptional restaurant located at the hotel with fresh cinnamon rolls every morning.

We stayed in one of the “flip flop” rooms and loved it! Our room was nice sized with a sitting area and small kitchen as well as king bed, really quiet, private, modern and clean, the patio was perfect for chilling out and the ocean breeze at night was dreamy. It was great to hav

The Maya Beach Hotel knows how to take care of their visitors the best. Everyone is there to help. The rooms were very clean and well kept. They had coolers with bottle water so you didn't need to buy any. We stayed in the King Tide room where we could walk out our door and

I've stayed at the Maya Beach Hotel twice, once for a too short romantic get away with my husband and once with my daughter and her friend. Both stays were just amazing.
We stayed in the Hibiscus room for our first trip. It was a cosy room with a very comfortable bed. We's arran

Is there a nearby dive operation? Will they pick up from the hotel? My group is interested in scubadiving. Thanks!
Hello!!! Yes! They will pick you up! Maya beach is about 8 miles from Placencia village. There are many dive operations there. Maya Beach booked all of my excursions. They use Sea horse dive shop. I went snorkeling with them and it was an amazing time!

Is thong swimwear and topless acceptable on the beach?
I wouldn't know. The beach is pretty isolated, but there are children there so parents may find that objectionable....

Does the hotel provide any transportation to and from the municipal or international airport? How far is the drive from Belize City to Placencia? Thanks!
The hotel does not provide transportation from the airports in Belize City. You can take a puddle jumper from Belize City directly to the airport in Placencia and they will be able to arrange for a pick up from there which is only about 10 minutes from the hotel. The drive from Belize City to Placencia is about 3 hours. I would not recommend doing this drive when it's dark. The roads in Belize are not well lit at night and you will come across about 10-12 short one lane bridges that sneak up on you at night . During the day it is a pleasant drive that is very scenic.

Do all rooms have air conditioning
All our units have A/C. Most are wall units with outdoor compressors that are common here and they are fairly quiet. One room currently has a window unit.

"My favorite rooms are King Conch and King Fish."
