The staff of Laru Beya make this resort. They knew our names when we arrived, and introduced themselves to offer to do whatever they could to make our stay effortless, peaceful and fully enjoyable. If you are looking for a wild and crazy beach party with lots of noise, this is probably not the place for you. This was the perfect place for us to enjoy the ocean and pool, and it is also close enough to Placencia to rent a golf cart and go into town. Our room was outstanding, and had everything we needed. The cleaning staff were generally very good about coming in and getting everything tidied up while we were at breakfast at the Quarterdeck. The only exception to that was when we came back a little early while they were decorating our room for my birthday. The extra care that went into that was just over the top! There are other restaurant choices within a golf cart ride, but the Quarterdeck is really the only place you need to go. The other places were fine, but not as personal and the food wasn't any better anyplace else we tried. Having this restaurant on site is a great feature. We liked being at a smaller resort and would certainly come back again. Other things that you need to be aware of when considering Laru Beya is that it is north of Placencia, so you will need transportation to go into town. You CAN drink the water. Transport is to/from the Placencia airfield. Beer means Belikin (very good). And unfortunately you can't take the staff with you. Overall, amazing!

Laru Beya Resort

Pros: Everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were raked, pruned and manicured daily.
Location: Most things we wanted to do were a couple hours away. The village was only 15-20 minutes away. They have kayaks and Miniature golf.
We have never booked a vacation like this before. This was for our 50th Anniversay and chose Belize not knowing anything about it. We spent 3 months checking on everything we could. I even called the hotel and spoke to Sharon to have a person to answer little things like do you need a jacket, how far are some of the outings we wanted to go on. Our plane was late arriving, no problem they waited for us. We were greeted with a gift for our anniversary, then we were shown our room which was on second floor (no elevator) stairs only. I have bad knees and feet so Ed said, “let me check something for you,” and 10 minutes later we were in a first floor ocean front beautiful apartment. On our Anniversary the staff set up a table surrounded with lights in a heart shape and a waiter from the restaurant was assigned to us. It was a wonderful dinner (very good food) and the atmosphere was splendid. It was more than we could have asked for. We highly recommend Laru Beya for a great time.

Guest rooms right at the beach! Fantastic rooms

Pros: LOVED everything. The people are great. The grounds are immaculate. The location is close to the village, but far enough to be quiet without crowds
Cons: We couldn't think of anything to improve. Prices might be better, but then everyone would stay there!
Location: A few miles from Placencia village but not so far you can't ride a bike. Snorkeling of the beach in front of rooms, kayaking and catamarans available
Really enjoyed Laru Beya. The staff were attentive and VERY helpful when travelocity fouled up our next reservation. Before that, the Laru Beya staff were very helpful with setting up tours and ground transportation. Water activities were great. Our two bedroom suite was just perfect for us. The wood furnishings were stunning. Belize has fantastic woods and these are on display throughout the resort. New appliances in the kitchen. We were RIGHT ON THE BEACH. We ate many meals in the resort restaurant and enjoyed all experiences there.

Great place on the beach.

Staff could not have been any nicer or more helpful. They had great suggestions and made our time staying there great. The rooms all have balconies or patios with hammocks to watch the ocean from.
