Fodor's Expert Review Belize Ocean Club Resort & Spa
Placencia Rd. , Maya Beach, Stann Creek, Belize
Stretching across the narrow Placencia Peninsula from sea to lagoon, this resort has one- and two-bedroom suites that are luxuriously outfitted with travertine marble floors, balconies, and custom kitchens with granite countertops. There are two restaurants, the Indonesian-inspired Shore Club on the lagoon side and Ocean Club Bar & Grill, a casual dining venue on the seaside. There is a large infinity pool with a swim-up bar, and the Eucalypto Spa, which offers basic spa treatments such as massages and pedicures. The resort also has a dive shop. However, service and the restaurants don't always live up to the quality of the accommodations. Sizeable discounts are sometimes available from published rack rates.
- large, luxurious condo suites
- staff eager but not highly trained
