Our absolute most favorite place on the mainland was Placencia Belize. This tiny village at the tip of the peninsula is known for two things:
1. The Longest beaches in the Belize
2. The longest and narrowest main street in the world (it even made it to the Guinness World Book of Records)
But that’s not all. Laru Beya Resort should be up there for a must do! How did I find this gem? Through Tripadvisor of course. And I have to say, there is a reason it’s holding the number one spot for ages and ages.
We were greeted by Tim, the front desk manager, and given a tour of the property before heading to our room. The hotel has three main buildings and we were lucky enough to be right on the beach beside the pool. My kids were in heaven!
Before jumping in to describe the rooms, I have to mention how excited I was about the pool. I have a one year old, and he can’t swim on his own. And I’m not a big fan of swimming, so anything to keep me out of the pool but him in it helps me a lot. This pool was designed perfectly for him! Both my older son and my baby were able to enjoy the pool at the same time while I got to relax!
We were escorted to our two-bedroom condo. The bedrooms were so huge that my whole family would have fit perfectly into the main bedroom with room to spare, each kid having a separate bed. But since, we did have 2 bedrooms, we had a blast!
My older son, feeling all independent in his own room separated by a full kitchen and large dining room, even took showers on his own and hung out watching TV alone which is something he never ever does at home!
My baby, loved the hanging out on our veranda looking at the ocean. Not to talk badly about my baby, but he’s very needy and never wants to be alone, so the fact that he did this was a great sign, that is was so comfortable.
Even though we spent a lot of time exploring Placencia, I think in the end we ended up spending more time enjoying the hotel, the beach and the pool.
But, most of all the restaurant that cooks anything from Seafood to traditional style meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
So even if you’re not staying at this hotel, it will be a great place to come for an afternoon, enjoy the kayaks and then stay for some eats.
Falling in love with Placencia was so easy but staying at Laru Beya, really made it so hard for us to leave!
Thanks Tim for a great stay!
