We stayed at Spa room and so amazing! Clean, cute and tub is big enough for 2 of us and great shower as well! We scuba dive and it’s hard to find big enough bathroom to wash our bikinis and gear while washing ourselves! Spa room is awesome! On-site restaurant, Sala’s kitchen is fantastic! Drinks from rooftop bar is delicious! You can see the owner takes care of the facility and whole place is clean and cute :-) definitely coming back to Spa room! Miss staying there already!!!

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Beautiful, small, quiet resort. We had the most relaxing vacation and the owner, Forest, was amazing and took care of everything we needed and wanted to do. She and Lizzy made sure we were picked up at the resort for our snorkeling trip, had a golf cart delivered for us the day we got there and arranged our flight from Belize City to San Pedro and arranged a shuttle to the resort. Forest makes you feel like so comfortable and like you’ve known her forever. Bella and Araceli in the kitchen were spectacular. The food was so great it was hard to try the restaurants in town on our list. They were so incredibly nice and Araceli even taught my husband how to make her delicious beans and rice. We cannot say enough about these two and feel like we made genuine friends. Lester was a great and fun bartender and Brandon was so nice and helpful and answered any questions we had. Spartacus the resident Great Dane was a bonus and so fun to have around. We highly recommend!

My husband and I just returned from a blissful 10 day stay at Playa de Sala- what a gem! This gorgeous boutique hotel is located ~4.5miles from downtown San Pedro - you’re away from the hustle and bustle of the golf cart traffic. The rooms and grounds are just as pictured - clean, beautiful and very well maintained. Sala’s kitchen restaurant is on site serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (amazing- we ended up dining in most mornings and nights because it was so delicious!!) The rooftop sunset view deck + full service bar were fabulous! All that being said - the people who work here are what makes this a truly magnificent experience- everyone is immensely attentive, detail oriented and flexible/open to every ask. Lyzz helped us organize the golf cart and recommended and booked all of our excursions (which were memorable!). Brandon ensured the beach was instagram ready ;) and our room was spotless. On our anniversary he even decorated our room! Lester and Henri were fabulous bartenders- we had a blast experimenting with new cocktails. Araceli and Bella and the whole kitchen staff were stellar (see Sala’s kitchen review). Forest and Spartacus(the Great Dane) were the most gracious hosts! All in all - highly recommend! I did tons of research prior to booking this stay and the reviews were 100% on point. Book your stay!

We just got back from staying in Belize for my birthday. I usually book the hotels, but my husband booked Playa De Sala, so I was a little unsure. haha! He did great! What a perfect boutique hotel and experience! It is Adults Only. There are only 5 rooms. The hotel is very modern and super nice! It's on the lagoon side, very peaceful! Everyone that works there is SO nice and accommodating. Lyzz (manager) met us upon arrival and showed us around the property. They gave us welcome drinks. She arranged an in-room couples massage, our golf cart for the weekend, and covid tests to return to the US, which was a rapid test they also did in our room. The bartenders and servers were top notch. They were very attentive. The drinks were great! They even made a special trip to the store to get us more Ketel One, since we had been ordering dirty martinis with Ketel One, and they made another special trip to get Splenda because we had requested it the first day for coffee. The first night we were tired from traveling, so we just ate dinner on our porch in our pjs. They setup a table right outside our room. The rooftop bar is very fun where you can watch the sunset and also eat dinner. Thank you Lester, Ethnie & Henry! The food is awesome! Sala's Kitchen - Araceli and Bella are great chefs! Araceli was making homemade cinnamon rolls the fist night for the next morning. I mentioned how good they smelled, and she brought a hot one to my room that night. The fish is fresh and prepared perfectly. The lobster tail was great! We had really good breakfasts! The night of my birthday, they played "Happy Birthday" over the speakers and brought a chocolate molten cake dessert that was delicious. My favorite thing about Playa De Sala is how peaceful and relaxed it is, how modern and classy the hotel is and how personalized the service was. When we came back from fishing the flats (which I highly recommend as well: Go Fish Belize) Brandon had drawn a huge birthday message in the sand. When we got to our room, he had decorated with a banner, and the towels were folded like a birthday cake. haha! Looking forward to returning to Playa de Sala! xo

My gf and I stayed at Playa de Sala for 4 days and had an absolutely amazing time! Before arrival, the hotel made sure to have our flights to and from San Pedro booked. When we arrived, they had golf carts ready for our use. They booked a personnel to come to our rooms to do Covid testing the day before departure. They offered to open breakfast early if needed, and they also sent the food to our room and made sure that we had what we needed! The food and drinks were wonderful, and we see why people come out to drink and dine here. The rooftop bar was amazing. We had the pleasure of enjoying some live music. We drove the golf carts to town (we were amazed that we were able to find our way!) and even to secret beach a couple of times. Loved the feel of the beach, but also loved the quiet and tucked away experience offered at the bay. Forrest was awesome, we loved the lady chefs and the bartenders. Always such a warm feeling of familiarity. We see why it is ranked number 1 in San Pedro. We will definitely be back!
