    Words can not express how awesome this place is. The food is beyond words. The Rainforest Shrimp is to die for. Also do yourself a favor and have the Key Lime pie. The bartenders and staff are beyond believe how cool they all are. Bruce and Sharon the owners were great to us. We are heading out to sail for 7 days and will be back next week. Don’t waste your time with other resorts.

    The location was perfect. Close for a bike ride to tow. But also far enough away to be exclusive. Also it’s right on the beach. The food was delicious!! Really good options and cooked well!

    A perfect way to begin our Belize vacation. The property was easy to locate and the staff was very helpful. We met the owners, who were very sweet. I loved this place because it felt more like a community and not a stuck-up resort, even though it came with all the resort amenities! It is also really close to the Placencia downtown, which was fun to explore.

    What a fantastic place! The owners (Bruce and Sharon) have done an amazing job creating a tropical oasis. The rooms (I stayed in one of their "tree-houses") are huge, well appointed and maintained, and you have your own deck space and hammock. The bar is right beside the pool and 20 steps from an awesome beach. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The cook was amazing, and I think I only ate once off-property in four days. Highly recommended, and I will definitely be back!
