My husband and I had been to Belize once before, but had visited the mountains. We were very excited to visit the beach. Adventure started with our flight on a puddle jumper from Belize City to placencia. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the resort. The location is terrific. You can walk along the beach into town or use the resorts bikes. Everyone at the resort is terribly friendly and the food and drinks are great. There is no restaurant per say but you can order food just about anytime to any location be it poolside or to your room. We enjoyed happy hour every night at the bar. Great time to meet fellow travelers. Just wear bug spray. Although the resort sprays that time of night is awful for the no see'ums and my legs got eaten up the first night. It was nice during the day even though all the rooms were booked you hardly ran into anyone. Very quiet and relaxing. There are kayaks and bikes you can take out which are both fun. One day we did a full day snorkel with the group across the street at the marina. They were wonderful and we saw dolphins, rays, and sea turtles.
My only complaint really is that our room overlooked the pool and our bedroom the bar. The shades were very thin and at night all the unit lights and bar lights flooded our room so often times it was hard to fall asleep. There are only a few units that actually look directly out to the ocean otherwise you just get a corner or so.
Overall it was great and I would recommend it it's nice to be close to town too so you can venture out. The Cozy Corner was good for breakfast and we were most surprised the little Italian restaurant was really good!
