Great beach hotel, with excellent restaurant.Posted Mar 2, 2014
Singing Sands is a great hotel, with a touch of Korean culture also (try the spicy pork). It is right on the beach, has a swimming pool to wash the salt out, and has an outstanding restaurant. It is a bit isolated from other facilities, such as restaurants in Placencia, unless you have a car - but then there is not a lot of reason to go to them with the quality on hand.

The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was beautiful with an amazing clean beach. The food and cocktails at the restaurant were delicious!! Overall great experience, I would definitely recommend this hotel. One side note bring lots of bug spray!

AmazingPosted May 3, 2013
Pros: The room and the outdoor restaurant. And the golf cart :-)
Cheesecake and their own type of espresso martini - how did they know!? Top service.

Wonderful vacation, thanks to Singing Sands!Posted Apr 24, 2013
Pros: The cabanas and the intimacy of the "resort."
Cons: It's very hard to come up with any. Honestly.
Location: Slightly remote from the town of Placencia, making for a fairly pricey taxi ride in.
Singing Sands is a little piece of paradise! I really have nothing negative to say. The staff are amazing. The surroundings are amazing. Service, food and drinks are amazing. If you are looking for a personalized experience in a small and lovely environment, you have found it.

Luxury off Beaten PathPosted Mar 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Placencia and Maya Beach were fun beach areas, not too crowded. Singing Sands is located at Maya Beach, about 8 miles from Placencia proper. If you want night action, bars, shopping etc. be prepared to pay for taxi ($20 US each way). The property is meticulously maintained, gardens with fountain and stunning (but small) pool. We found many fun options in biking distance, small, low-key beach bars and restaurants. Food is over priced and fair. Best meals were short walk down the road at Maya Bistro. Service was attentive, but formal and not nearly as friendly as what we experienced everywhere else. We stayed in a cabana, other reviews are accurate, no A/C but it didn't bother us. One of the prettiest properties I've ever stayed at and beautiful beach and water for swimming (not much snorkeling on property). We would definitely stay here again, but would plan to eat elsewhere for better prices/ quality and friendlier service.

Gorgeous location and beautiful designed resort.Posted Feb 10, 2013
Cons: Because it is so open air, even in the cabanas, you do hear the bar/restaurant and road traffic sometimes more than you might want to.
We loved it! We had read up quite a bit about Singing Sands and decided it was the place for us. I would have to say they exceeded our expectations! First of all, they answered multiple questions for us online weeks before we even arrived. We took a shuttle van they helped us arrange from the airport in Belize City and it poured rain nearly our whole ride to Placencia. That slowed our journey and the resort called our driver during the ride to make sure everything was okay since we were running late. We dined there at The Bonefish Grill for several meals and everything we had tasted amazing and was presented beautifully. The chef even prepared a King Mackerel for us that we caught with a guide. The entire staff, including owners Maya and Michael, were always accommodating and very helpful. They assisted us in coordinating multiple excursions and even worked with a guide to customize a day of sites we wanted to see! We had read some comments prior to going that there weren't many options for other dining or shopping nearby. We did not find that to be the case. There are a couple different markets a few minutes walk up the road and multiple other restaurant. We especially liked the little bar/restaurant closest, The Hungry Gecko. It wasn't fancy, and she only prepared what she had on hand that day, but each time we ate there it was great and very inexpensive. We would go back tomorrow if we could...especially since we are expecting a snow storm here in MN!

It was awesome. The staff superb. During extreme hot weather need more than just ceiling fan and one floor fan. Nicer pillows and pillow cases would be a plus too especially in very hot weather since our cabana did not have AC. With all that said I definitely recommend Singing Sands. Pictures don't do it justice.
