“What a House” My first time in Belize and we were spoiled to death. The house and staff were way beyond my expectations.Invited for a birthday celebration and 10 of us were extremely comfortable. Chef Sylvia did an amazing job with local foods. The view never quits and the friendly people of San Pedro were always helpful. I will return.
“Incredible Location, Fantastic Host - Highly Recommended” Our group of 8 had a fabulous stay at Swan Villas. It's just outside of Placencia in Maya Beach. The house is uniquely designed and very relaxing. Loved the private suites and especially the pool, when the heat got to be too much. There is lots of wildlife around, like iguanas and birds. The view is to die for. We enjoyed the kayaks on the "lake" side of the house and walking on the beach right across the street. Great restaurants in the area. We went to the Bistro 3 times. We were divers after the whale sharks and would be out most of the day. The house is very secure and the host is readily available and very helpful. Rudy gave us some great tips for the area, and even on to our next stop in San Ignacio. Would love to visit again.
“Heaven” There just aren't enough adjectives to do this review justice. This is a once in a lifetime lovely, relaxing, fun and pleasant place to vacation. Peter and the staff took care of every request starting from the moment of booking this vacation. We were able to provide information about our likes/dislikes as it pertains to comfort, food, drink, privacy or not, activities we like to do, etc before we arrived. Peter also helped us plan our time on both ends of the trip on the island so we could enjoy the Belize mainland. I would recommend doing the same and not missing any moments you have to spend on the island. Take an excursions on the mainland before and/or after your booking dates for the island.
Peter and the staff accommodated every request we had even if it meant going to the mainland to bring something in to meet the request. The other reviews about The Royal Belize are exactly what we experienced too. The up-to-date technology is wonderful. You use connected ipads/itouches for music, communication to the staff and entertainment in every home and the main Palapa. We were even able to connect our ipads to the sound system and we played (with the other couple we came with) name that song/artist. It was great fun.
You will not be let down when you travel to this destination spot I like to call Heaven. Thank you to Peter and staff for bringing a part of Heaven into our lives.
“Wonderful stay at Villa Ranguana” Villa Ranguana is a beautiful place to relax, kick back and enjoy the beautiful world of the Caribbean sea... Waking up in the morning to watch the sunrise from bed... relaxing on the expansive balcony to watch the waves and birds each morning while having breakfast... walking on the beach each day, swimming, snorkeling, borrowing the kayak to an early morning ride to look at the coral and star fish, fun to take out the Hobie for a sail!!! Not a thing in the world to worry about and just enjoying the wonderful amenities of the Villa. Loving to cook, we truly appreciated the expansive kitchen...fully equiped with all we needed. Stan and Mary are wonderful "hosts" providing necessities upon arrival and assuring we found our way around Placencia.Caretaker on the property to assist as needed. Truly a place we want to revisit in the future...and bring more friends with us. Lots of space for many people to gather..and still have privacy.
