Cannot wait to go back
We visited Mariposa Beach Resort in early June and stayed in one of the treehouses. The staff was fantastic. Donnie, Gladys, Miguel, Ricky, Carlos, and the whole team listened to our needs and exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were well appointed, the beds were very comfy, rooms and public areas were kept clean, and the grounds were well maintained. Mariposa’s location on the peninsula cannot be beat. Others may advertise a close proximity to the village, but Mariposa truly is only a five minute golf cart ride. We strongly recommend renting one for your visit and venturing into the village for shopping, an occasional meal off property, and some night life. The food and drinks at The Breezeway were also fantastic. We especially enjoyed the breezeway salad, shrimp ceviche, and perfectly prepared snook. Placencia is a great spot if you’re looking to avoid the crowds of San Pedro and want a combination of a relaxing beach get away and exciting excursions.

This place was awesome! The tree house was spectacular, super clean and amazing beds and bathroom. The pool was great for my son and they even had kids toys and a life vest for him. Everyone that worked there was so friendly and helpful. They had the doctor come to the resort for our COVID tests to get home and that made it so much less stressful. And the best part was how the food was such a pleasant surprise. We had just come from a jungle lodge that had sub par food so this was such a relief. The owner and the staff were all fabulous, we wish we’d spent our entire stay here!

Lewis and the Team at Mariposa Belize Beach Resort are excellent. From the moment we arrived for our 1 week stay with them they made us feel at home. Safe and Comfortable. Spotless. Modern. All the amenities, at a very fair cost. We stayed in one of the Tree Houses and enjoyed the wonderful feeling of being inside the Jungle canopy--with tropical birds and iguana's peppered throughout the tree tops in our view. We did a number of day trips--all convenient from the resorts location near Placencia and Maya Beach. We sea kayaked, swan and snorkeled right from the resort. We watched other guests fish from the resort and catch fish! On one of our kayaking trips we saw small stingrays and a manatee! One night we used the resorts bikes and went next door to the Turtle Inn (Copolla) for cocktails--a very beautiful location--and then we returned to Mariposa for Dinner--as the food at Mariposa was excellent--and much less expensive than Turtle and some of the better restaurants in Placencia and Maya Beach. Our last night we had cocktails at the Breezeway (Mariposa's restaurant) made by their Mixolist Miguel--Fantastic Pumpkin Rum Mojito's with burnt cinnamon stirrers. The morning we had to leave, it was a sad farewell at breakfast when Mariposa's morning team member Tiffany wished us safe travels! Even if you don't stay at the Mariposa--make sure you check out there restaurant the Breezeway as it has excellent food at an affordable price.

Best resort in Placencia!
I can’t recommend Mariposa resort enough. It’s location is great with unmatched ocean access. Great swimming right off the beach. There’s A pool and bar/restaurant beachfront, as well. Food and drinks are delicious and well priced. The owner, Lewis, and his staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful - they all went out of their way to make our stay just perfect. The air conditioning and recently updated bathrooms were an absolute treat. Our group was split across multiple properties in Placencia and all agreed Mariposa was the best. We can’t wait to go back!
