    I was in Belize for a wedding in September, 2019.I must say the resort needs some renovation to be done. Overall the trip was great and all KUDOS to IRMA who was our housekeeper. She is a great worker , caring person, trustworthy , and make sure all our requests were meet during our stay. She went over and beyond and we were all saddened when it was time to depart. Her leadership and caring should be recognize because of the services she provided during our stay. We looking forward to another trip in the near future and we are looking forward to stay at your resort because of the TREATMENT we received from Irma during our stay which makes it memorable. Thanks MEC

    My sons and I just spent 8 days here. While the resort itself needs a little facelift, the employees certainly don’t. Without exception, every staff member was friendly and helpful! Of everyone we interacted with, Irma - supervisor of cleaning- was the absolute best! She is so friendly, excellent at her job and willing to go above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. Without Irma, our stay would have been much less enjoyable ! I certainly hope that management here recognizes Irma and her excellent work ethic as well as her ability to accommodate each and every guest! Those are rare qualities to have , but Irma has it .... and more!

    Lovely site and Service a little too quiet

    We visited this resort the week after New Year’s and the staff and location were excellent. They were very accommodating regarding excursions and the free shuttle service was much appreciated. It was nearly empty and that made the beach and pool a little dull. The restaurant was good but not as good as the Mayan Bistro down the street. I would return but would find a peak time.

    Wonderful place to stay

    Stayed here this past December and had a wonderful trip. Thank you Natasha for assisting me with my stay and being so kind. Wonderful amenities, beautiful beach and very kind staff. I would recommend staying here when in Belize.

    We would’ve given this place six stars out of five if we could! The place looks exactly like in the pictures! The resort is quiet, beautifully maintained, and the rooms were spacious and the beds were really comfortable. We were a family of three and stayed in a two bedroom. They welcomed us with a drink and had arranged beautiful flowers on our bed the night that we arrived. The hotel staff were so friendly and accommodating. We loved the location of this resort which is outside of Placencia village and we’re so happy that we did not stay in the village. The resort does offer a shuttle to Placencia village a few times a day, or you can take a taxi, or the bus. We rented a car and we’re happy that we did that because it allowed us the freedom to drive to the Village whenever we wanted to, as well as we spent a day at Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and it only cost us five dollar entry for each of us rather than the fee for a tour . We also drove to Mayan king for zip lining, which was about a 30 minute drive from the resort and my son and I got a private zip lining tour! You can’t beat that. We also did a number of dives with Splash Dive Center and we did a one day trip to Ranguana Caye which was fantastic. The snorkeling around Ranguana Caye was beautiful. I highly recommend the Splash Dive Center for diving. We did buy groceries so that we had coffee, cereal and milk for breakfast. We did room service at the resort and the food was very good. We also ate at a number of restaurants in the village. I highly recommend this hotel because of how nicely it’s maintained, the beautiful pool, comfortable beds and the great customer service!!
