“Nice stay at Robert's Grove Beach Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

Just got back from a stay at Robert's Grove Beach Resort (June 13 - 20, 2012) and just wanted to share our experience. The hotels is very pretty all around. We had a 1 bedroom villa that was directly oceanfront. From our balcony we looked right at the surf, it was really lovely. The villa was well appointed with comfortable seating in the living area and on the balcony. Minor disappointment in the fact that we were told our room had a small kitchenette as we planned to maybe cook in a couple nights, and when we checked in they told us our unit did not provide that amenity. IF I had done some grocery shopping prior to arriving, I may have been upset, but since I didn't I decided not to make a fuss. The reason they gave me was that they didn't have any other units to offer me but it didn't seem that the resort was very full. Point is, hotels should never advertise something and not deliver. Again, in the end it did not negatively impact our stay as we found all the dining options in Placencia to be so great, we were glad we didn't cook in. I think the best feature of Robert's Grove is it's wonderfully warm and accommodating staff. We loved Elda, Ana, and Pedro in the restaurant and Juan at the bar. All great people throughout though. They really made us feel welcome everyday. Food at the hotel was excellent, the breakfast they provide with the room stay, the continental breakfast, is huge with a delicious array of baked goods, fruit and yogurt. We caught fish during the week and the chef happily prepared it for us too. We went to Cockscomb basin on our own during our stay and really loved hiking and bird watching there. It's only about 30 minutes from Placencia. We did the Monkey River Tour too, but found that disappointing, no manatees and a lack luster guide. We did 4 days of diving with Avadon divers, and they were awesome in every way. I can't recommend them enough. Placencia itself is a cool little town. A nice laid back vibe, with really great restaurants and some fun bars with live music at night. We recommend Cozy Corner, Barefoot Beach Bar, and Rumfish y Vino. Oh and the Gelato place beside Rumfish is out of this world too. So don't hesitate to visit Placencia, and stay at Robert's Grove, great experience and we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom villa was further from the kitchen and reception so very quiet and right on the beach.

For once this property looks just like its photographs. This is a place to relax with a love one, it is not for business! Even in the raining season, sitting on the veranda and waiting for the thunderstorms and the film star quantity rain to arrive as the clouds sweep over the darkening sea is as enjoyable as watching the sun rising onto a crystal clear blue sea, lapping on golden white sand. A sight that can take your breath away. Think briefly of your colleagues working hard in the cities of north america or Europe as you breath the clear air while sitting in Paradise that is Robert's Grove, Placencia. This is a place to hide from global recession and European austerity, but bring cash and the plastic card you will need it.

To get there from Belize international Airport you will have to take a 6-8 seater plane that may stop off at Belize City airstrip and/or Dangriga before landing at Placencia airstrip. Enjoy this flight down the coast. A shuttle bus will take you to Robert's Grove.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the second floor to avoid those flying beasts and creepy crawlies the will colonise o...

My wife and I recently returned from a vacation to Southern Belize. Our choice for lodging was Roberts Grove in Placencia. We stayed for 8 nights and the staff was outstanding. Everyone from the wait staff, Pedro, Marcelo, Ana, to name a few, to Chef Peter, made us feel welcome and comfortable. A big "Thank You" to Jenilee at the front desk, for getting me on the Actun Tinichil Muknal Cave Expedition on relatively short notice. She also told us the night before our last full day that since she was off from work that particular day, she would say a prayer and do a dance to the Whale Shark Gods. Guess what? We had a 20 footer by our boat for about 10 minutes! We have been blessed to travel to some great destinations, but this vacation is in the top 2 that we've ever gone on.
Looking for a great place to stay in Southern Belize? Want great food, beautiful surroundings, a staff that can't do enough for you, has Scuba and fishung boats on site, and can arrange any tour you want to take? The Inn at Roberts Grove rates a very enthusiastic "Thumbs Up"! Kudos to you!!

Room Tip: If you want an Oceanview, try to reserve a 2nd or 3rd floor villa. 2nd floor villas have hammocks, a...

A BIG thank you to the staff at Robert’s Grove for the amazing service at Habanero’s Restaurant, we were there for the famous Tuesday Mexican buffet and the food was finger-licking good, the shrimp ceviche was EXELLENT!
From the moment we arrive we were cordially welcomed and set on our table, drinks came fast and we were always being checked to make sure everything was smooth.

A must go restaurant if you are in Placencia! Last but not least, the live singing Mariachis were superb, I requested a few special songs myself

...We went to Robert's Grove in Placencia, Belize for our Honeymoon and enjoyed every single moment - it was just perfect! From the moment we arrived and were greeted at reception by Jenny who made us feel at home immediately, and a welcome cocktail drink - to the time we sadly packed our bags and headed back to the airport.

It's a long way from the UK - you can't fly directly, so we broke our journey with a couple of nights in Miami on the way over - but the journey is great fun and definately worth it : taking a tiny 6-seater plane from Belize International down the Placencia Peninsula and finally arriving at a little piece of paradise, Robert's Grove.The hotel is situated towards the end of the peninsula, with the beach and the main part of the hotel on one side of the road, and a marina and restaurant on the other. The rooms are beautiful, kept very clean and tidy daily with fresh flowers left in the bathroom and on the table every day, and mini-chocolates with the turn-down service.

The hotel staff are brilliant, very friendly but not over-the-top, always happy to help or to chat, and to recommend local restaurants or places to visit. Edwin is the best hotel barman we have met, fab cocktails and always great service - Jenny was brilliant at reception, always happy to help - and always smiling!

We had 5 nights relaxing at Robert's Grove - eating mainly at the hotel restaurant where the food was excellent, but also sampling the Mexican buffet at the marina, and the restaurant at the Singing Sands (the Sister hotel which is about ten minutes in a taxi, which reception will organise for you). The food is great - continental breakfast was included which we thought we may have to supplement, being fans of the traditional cooked breakfast but we actually had the continental one every day and it was more than enough - a selection of fresh fruit, freshly baked breads and pastries from the hotel's own bakery, yoghurts, fresh coffee and juice - all whilst sitting practically on the beach watching the pelicans dive into the sea for their own breakfast. During the day you can eat at the restaurant or order at the bar - from a full lunch, to tasty snacks and dinner was always really good - great food and excellent service.

There's plenty of sunbathing spots to choose from - from the long stretch of white sand along the front, one of three pools, a hammock under the trees, a palm-covered shady spot on the roof of the hotel to your own balcony or terrace at the front of your room.

We asked the hotel about visiting the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich and they organised a personal trip for us...We spent a great day with Juan, and although it's quite a long drive from Placencia it's really worth it as you get to see so much of the country on the way, and the ruins
themselves are really impressive too. Juan was a great guide and really looked after us well, laughing as the guides at the ruins got ready for Prince Harry's visit the following day, sweeping up all the leaves! We also made the most of the Spa facilities at the hotel and enjoyed a Couple's Massage - listening to the sea in the background.

The hotel had bikes available which we used to cycle into Placencia Village and explore a little futher along the peninsula, and we sampled some great cocktails in Placencia whilst sheltering from a cloudburst, and then had dinner at Rumfish y Vino which is another popular
recommendation. The food at Rumfish was great but we found the service lacking - there was another large group in which took up the attention of the staff and the manager alike and it was hard to get their attention - we would recommend booking a table if you're going to go as it
gets really busy.

After 5 nights at the hotel we were taken by boat to Ranguana Caye - one of the hotel's two private islands. About 20 miles offshore, this beautiful two-acre island really was our little piece of paradise for 2 nights... We stayed in a rustic wooden cabana, right on the edge of
the water, up on stilts looking out over the ocean. We were really well looked after by Phil who manages the island and did all the cooking (and his gorgeous dog Taz!), and Elodio, one of the hotel waiters who came over especially to be our barman. Both the guys were amazing,
always around if we needed anything but left us to it so it really did feel like our very own island. We were surprised how well equipped this little sandbar in the middle of the ocean actually was, especially when the phone rang at breakfast time! The food was gorgeous, freshly bbq'd meat, salads, fruit, and the biggest fish we'd ever seen - which Phil caught spear-fishing in the afternoon and then served up for dinner that night... food on a dessert island which definately rivalled that at the hotel... beautiful. We also snorkelled at the island - very calm seas made this really easy for me as I'm not very confident in the water, but I wouldn't have missed this for the world.

The weather changed on our last night at the island, so the boat ride home the next day was a little bit bumpy but we were well looked after by our captain Bruce and we made it back to Robert's Grove very wet, but in one piece, to enjoy another couple of nights at the hotel before
coming home... our travel agent had originally planned for us to come straight home from Ranguana but we would recommend at least another night at the hotel first, otherwise it would've been a real rush and possibly spoilt the end of our holiday.

As it was, we spent our remaining days soaking up as much sun as possible and enjoying relaxing at the hotel - the perfect end to a perfect holiday. Thank you so much to all the staff at Robert's Grove for making us feel so welcome - but especially Jenny, Edwin, Elodio, Juan,
Bruce, Phil - and last but not least, Taz! We had the most amazing Honeymoon, and hope to come back another day!
