I had a private room and the sea breeze is awesome thru the louvered windows. Really get that tropical atmosphere. Aircon was good when used. Spent 6 days and nights here, wish I could have stayed months. The 3rd floor restaurant is popular and they make great tropical drinks. A really laid back town and staying here is just right....

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words then believe it. The photos of this place speak volumes to the attention to detail and expert woodworking. Beyond the aesthetics this is one of the highest structures in PG so you have great view all around. The owners are genuine people and are all about making sure your needs...

I had a great visit to Punta Gorda staying at A Piece of Ground. I felt safe as a solo female traveler, and welcomed by all. They have an A/C dorm, or A/C private rooms with bathrooms. Clean, nice, and a great restaurant up top!

Stayed at Jama's for a couple days. The dorm set up like Japanese capsules was the most comfortable nights in Belize. Hot shower, air-conditioning all included. Location is fine, just get off the bus at University of Belize stop and walk 5 minutes. The bar restaurant area is really relaxing.. ideal place to enjoy PG

Germaine and Jama have worked hard to set up a comfortable, well equipped hostel and hotel, plus what is probably the best bar in town. You'd think noise would be a problem but Punta Gorda is a pretty quiet spot. The only reason I didn't give A Piece Of Ground 5 stars is location, but they can't do anything about...

The rooms are fresh and clean, roof top views gives you view of all of PG and the sea. Great atmosphere, good food, good music, the folks are down to earth, and have positive vibes. A great place to relax and hang. Germaine and Jama know the lay of the land and can get you plugged into whatever you're looking...

I've been using Jama and Germaine's 'A Piece of Ground' down in Punta Gorda Town in southern Belize as my base camp for that last few years. It's a clean hotel/hostel, convenient, affordable and tucked away at the back of PG. They have great food at 'A Piece of Chicken Restaurant and Bar' and the Belikin beer's are always cold....

The American "Jama" knows what a western tourist needs to feel at home during sunrise, lunch and sunset. The accommodations are extremely wonderful, a/c, hot water, great foods and clean. Need anything to get around? Jama knows!
