Laru Beya - A little slice of Heaven!from RDUTravelGirl
When we arrived, were greeted at the Placencia airstrip by Pop, who proceeded to take us into town, show us around and even wait for us while we bought groceries. When we arrived at the property, we were shown to our fabulous 2 bedroom villa right on the beach. (I am talking less than 50 feet from the water, with a deck that would knock your socks off!) Our kitchen looked like something straight out of Better Homes and Gardens and the great room was nicely decorated and comfy. I still cannot believe how reasonably priced it was.
As wonderful as the room and rest of the property were, what was even more impressive was the way we were treated by the staff and management. Pop is great. A super nice guy who told us all about the area, offered suggestions on what to do while we were there and took us anywhere we wanted to go at no charge. Lina was so patient as she explained all kinds of options for tours and booked a last minute snorkeling trip for us with a boat that came right up to the beach in front of our room to pick us up. Debbie is a saint who went out of her way to make us feel at home without being the least bit obtrusive.
These people really get it! I am blown away and just cannot say enough good things about them. They really and truly are some of the most genuinely warm and friendly people I have ever met at a hotel/resort! We liked it so much, we are already planning a return trip for this November.
If you want pretentious and hoity toity, go to Turtle Inn or Robert's Grove. If you want a memorable vacation at a beautiful place whose staff will treat you like family, Laru Beya is the REAL DEAL!
There is a restaurant and bar on-site that we ate at once and that was great. The drinks are awesome. Especially the frozen rum punch! Also, Habeneros, across the street, is soooo good!!!
The hobie, cats, windsurfers, kayaks, and bikes are all free to use which was alot of fun. The pool is also nice. One day we biked into town but it is too far and hot to be enjoyable. We took a taxi back! Laru Beya will give you rides in town up until 7 or 8 pm.
All in all this place is awesome. Everyone that worked there was so nice and helpful. One night the security guard even walked us to the village so that we would be safe! The village is a little sketchy at night. The town is not though, there are more tourists there.
Amazing!! Just Amazing!from Amanda12
We had the penthouse deluxe with the roof top jacuzzi and the room, bed, bathroom view, resturant , bar and people was just spectcular. We loved everything about the hotel.
The food was amazing and so were the drinks. Everything was well priced and you never had to blink an eye to get anything.
The pool and beach were awesome. The hotel has hobbie cats, kayaks and more to use and they are FUN!!
The hotel itself it really a further walk than what we had thought- we actually tried when it was 35' celcius out- Too hot to walk a few miles- plus the main road is very dusty.
A quick cab will take you into town or the hotel was great about driving you in.
We loved everything about this week- this was our favorite place in all of Belize. It was just busy enough and at the same time not too busy. The town is a great little town with some great resturants and bars.
We would recommend it- especially the roof top jacuzzi with that amazing ocean breeze!!

Top Local Tips for Placencia
You can drink the water! Placencia has excellent, chlorinated water. You can drink it right from the tap without a problem. Don't bother with bottled water unless you're picky about that slight chlorine taste. Ice and fresh vegetables should be safe in general, but don't throw out your common sense.
Worth the trip... Placencia is really beautiful and has some of the best beaches but there are also many things to do nearby. Be sure to arrange a couple of day trips! Check out the Mayan ruins, see some of the cayes and arrange a snorkeling or diving trip along the reefs while you are there. The sealife is remarkable. We regret not being able to visit Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary because we heard so many wonderful things about it.
Drinking water clorinated, safe to drink! Not a The public water supply is clorinated and safe for travelers to drink, a major plus. Placencia is not a "hot spot", there aren't a huge number of social events to participate in, but it's friendly, and quiet and great for a break from "real life".
