“Honeymoon in Dreamsicle”
My husband and I stayed at Maya Beach Hotel in the Lower Dreamsicle House for our Honeymoon in May. Our experience with Maya Beach Hotel and the staff was outstanding. Our "house" was clean, and private, with beautiful views of the ocean and just steps away from the restaurant. It was so nice to sit on the lower porch and enjoy our coffee and breakfast each morning, and enjoy a cool beverage while sitting on the beach with our feet keeping us cool in the ocean waves. When we wanted to explore the area or take adventures, Ellen and her staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. Martin was always willing to give us our options for activities and help us coordinate our adventures. Without their help and recommendations, we wouldn't have been able to experience the local favorite hot spots or organize our adventures with ease. It was so nice that they coordinated someone to pick us up and drop us off at the airport for our arrival and departure. You can tell they really enjoy what they do, and their passion is unmatched. When we come back to Belize we will definitely stay at Maya Beach Hotel and we recommend it to anyone looking for a beach front relaxing vacation!
“Perfect peaceful paradise!”
I can't say enough good things about this house... but let me try. I rented the upstairs unit - spacious wonderful layout with high vaulted ceilings, amazing porch/deck facing east a few feet from the ocean surrounded by palm trees. Wonderful clean private pool overlooking ocean and very private. Inside amenities are very nice, including air conditioned rooms including all living spaces. I rented several places on the Placencia Penninsula and this was easily my favorite!
“A family reunion at the Dreamsicle”
We rented all three units of the Dreamsicle for a family reunion. It was ideal for our group of 9, including two small kids. The swimming pool was a big hit. Having a beach with lots of shade was a huge plus. The Maya Beach restaurant was excellent. You're 30 minutes north of Placencia, so it's nice to have transportation. The Dreamsicle is a great rental unit.
“UnBelizeable Paradise Lodging in Belize”
What's not to like about the Maya Beach Hotel and the Dreamsicle House? Six steps down to the sand from the deck and 26 more to the sea!! Daily maid service by Merle and Maggie was great - they, as well as the rest of the Maya Beach staff treated us like long lost friends come home again . The pool adjacent to the house is private - though we manatees had some difficulties hoisting ourselves out - older folks should have a ladder installed for them. The house had fans, which along with the sea breezes, were definitely enough to be comfortable - we never even used the air conditioning. As for the Bistro restaurant - words cannot describe the fusion of flavours , the presentation and the extraordinary tastes created in that kitchen! Seafood - fresh daily and fruits so fresh -- the juices spilled down our chins! We ate an entire Peanut Brittle Ice Cream Cake - the other desserts were to die for - I sampled the world's best Key Lime pie and Banana Cream Pie - who knew that freshly picked bananas tasted so wonderful! I cannot say enough about our visit - to Ellen, John, Kim and Marlon and all the Bistro Boys --- kudos to you - we are definitely going back!
Despite the movie-set quality beach and fantastic service, the Maya Beach Hotel is as unpretentious as they come. The hotel experience isn't about flat screen TVs in the rooms, but about the breathtaking beach, unforgettable excursions, relaxation, and delicious food. I went to the Maya Beach Hotel with four of my best friends and now i can't even imagine a better location for a low key girls getaway. Looking for some recommendations? Try anything on the menu you're not allergic to, chances are you'll love it. Want to go on an excursion? It'll be a hard choice between fantastic jungles, magical caves complete with waterfalls, or ancient ruins. Want to wear flip flops to dinner and do nothing at all? The hotel is perfect for that too. In fact, whatever you want to do, the hotel's friendly staff will try their best to accommodate your wishes. An utterly unforgettable experience!
“A relaxing getaway”
This was our second visit to the Maya Beach Hotel. The location is great as we wanted a beach vacation well away from the crowds and were not disappointed. The unit was very clean and spacious. We did much of our own cooking. Make plans to purchase groceries in Placencia as local choices are limited. If you splurge and eat at the hotel you are in for some great dining. John and Ellen are gracious hosts and will make all the arrangements for you. We can't wait to return.
“6th or 7th visit to hotel, love the place and food.”
Lovely hotel, great atmosphere in the bar and restaurant, the location on the beach 15yds from the sea, could not be better. Feel the Orange house next door needs serious refurbishment cannot recomend it. However the hotel is great.
“I have never been so relaxed!”
We had such a great time at Maya Beach! We spent the beginning of the trip in the Jaguar Room and then when we decided to extend (because Maya Beach was so perfect!) we moved into the Dreamsicle Studio because the Jaguar Room was booked. Both were great! The Studio was more economical and everything we needed. Plus it was great to have a kitchen, though the food in the restaurant was so delicious it was hard to cook for ourselves. Ellen was super helpful and really friendly! She set us up with a couple incredible day trips to go snorkeling and caving! The other days we kayaked and swam around the hotel and biked into town. It was a perfect vacation!
What a great place to stay! We loved our first visit to Belize and John, Ellen, and their staff couldn't have been nicer. There were a total of 8 us (two families each with two teenage daughters). The food was absolutely amazing, John is a wonderful chef. Ellen is the consumate hostess, and she went above and beyond by arranging a couple of different outings for us. We rented both floors of the Dreamsicle House for week and thouroghly enjoyed the experience. We ate all but two meals at the Bistro, the food was so good that we had to try everything on the menu. Since the Bistro is closed on Monday evenings, John arranged for a local fish monger to provide us some fresh fish to cook in our fully furnished kitchen. We are planning a return visit in Feb. 2011!
“Excellent Service & Amazing Food!”
Maya Beach Hotel is an amazing deal! I can't believe the price we paid for all that we got. Maya Beach Hotel is a quiet, very nice & clean, and extremely well run hotel in the Maya Beach area. The restaurant definitely lived up to it's reputation with some of the best food I've ever eaten. We went on a couple day trips-snorkeling, Mayan ruins, cave swimming, hiking at the Cockscomb Reserve and had a great time. Ellen fixed us up with all the tours, requiring no work on our part. We literally just said this is what we want to do and she made it happen. We could not have had more beautiful scenery with a pool right outside our door and the beach and ocean just on the other side. The pictures on the website don't do the location or rooms justice--it's even nicer with your own eyes. The staff is great--very friendly and helpful. John and Ellen are amazing owners. They are always available to help set up a tour, they can answer any questions you have, and they're great people to just hang out and talk to. I don't think I could say enough great things about John & Ellen or their staff. The hotel is about 8 miles from the town of Placencia so we would recommend renting a car if you want more freedom traveling around. Placencia is a small town with restaurants and companies that run tours, but it is not as developed as some other areas of Belize. If you are looking for a big resort with lots of fancy perks, Placencia may not be the area for you. But if you like a little more adventure along with beautiful scenery you will love this area! We were very satisfied with our stay and would definitely return in a heartbeat. Tessa
