I stayed here in May with a group of friends and had an unbelievable time! The villa was beautiful and the staff made it all the better. This is a must stay if you are looking for a luxury island getaway without breaking the bank! From the on-site restaurant, to the beachfront Infiniti pool to the rooftop patio to watch the sunset, it’s hard to find any flaws with Playa Villa. We had an amazing time and can not wait to come back!
Family and friends vacation
We are the type of people that have fun wherever we go. We combined wedding and excursions on this vacation. We had a beautiful time. That being said we were a little disappointed with our accommodations. There was a huge lack of communication on Corrina's part. She does not read her trip advisor emails. The pictures of the property is a bit deceiving. There is a beach there but you cannot swim in it. Anytime you want to go to dinner beach have fun in San Pedro you will have to go by boat. Which isn't the worst thing in the world but inconvenient, Dino is a staff member that goes beyond the call of duty. There are mosquitoes on the island which everyone knows. The rooms have mosquito nets but cannot be used properly. Hooks are way too high net does not cover the bed.
Staff members come and go whether you're there or away. I don't know about you but I like to know when staff will be in and out. Short power outage, wifi spotty at best. Other than those small inconveniences we managed to have a great time. When I stay here again no.
We traveled with a large group and had both Playa Villa #1 and #3. The setting was beautiful, right on the water. Dino and the housekeeping staff were great. Dino was patient with us and was happy to help in getting us back and forth from the Villas to San Pedro. Any repairs that needed to be made were addressed, at least acknowledged, right away. The group before us were not very gentle on the villas, but Dino was happy to help us out. We spent each day lounging in the pools, which were kept crystal clear. The Villas are beautiful with large bedrooms and HUGE bathrooms. We all slept comfortably. I will recommend Playa Villa Belize to friends who plan to travel to Belize.
We visited Playa Villa's last year (our first time in Belize) only to return again a few weeks ago and it was phenomenal! Corrina, once again, went above and beyond in accommodating our every want/need. From arranging our transfer flights between Belize City & San Pedro to setting us up with a catamaran day sail that provided an open bar, brunch/lunch, a super crew, and swimming with Manatees! The villa looked just had it did on our first visit but even nicer with the update in decor, new amenities, and the private chef service along with the perfect weather inspired many many lazy days lounging around the pool making it very hard to leave. Hurricane Earl had just passed through but the villas were left unharmed which was a relief as we thought we were going to have to rebook for another date...we are so glad we didn't!!! Thank you Corrina for such an amazing time...we can't wait until next year!!

Corrina was probably one of the best hosts I've encountered. She helped arrange for us a private plane tour over the Blue Hole and a 3-day scuba diving trip to Hol Chan, Turneffe and Half Moon Caye. The house itself is located a 5-8 water taxi ride from San Pedro (the main town area), and Dino (the caretaker) is on call to take you back and forth. He's also available on a cell phone that's provided to you, and he helps with everything (eg. delivery services, restaurant recommendations, etc.) There is a security guard who monitors the grounds and the houses are far enough that you can't hear the neighbours. We stayed in Villa 2, where there is no washer/dryer, but the housekeeper can do it for you. She comes by every few days and tidies, which is really great. The neighbours also had a private chef brought to them on one night, which can be arranged through Corrina and Dino. We were there at the end of November, where there are mosquitos at dawn and dust, so bring bug spray if you plan to be outside the house during that time. I only have great things to say about this villa, so if you're debating between places, stop and book this place immediately. You won't regret it. I'm already looking forward to our next trip to San Pedro.
