Beautiful, unique place! Large unit, large kitchen and amazing shower! Very clean and Miriam was an excellent host :)

My wife and I loved our stay at Swan Villas - Dolphin Villa.
The owners were in excellent contact with us as we made our journey from the border by car. They were very welcoming of our registered service dog too which is not all that common when you are traveling.
The villa itself was super clean and there were plenty of clean towels ready to use after a soak in the huge hot tub located in the living room!
Internet was fast enough averaging 50Mbs. The villas are architecturally so much fun and the layout means that you have excellent views over the infinity pool, to the lagune water to the mountains, all this without being 'overlooked' by one of the 4 other villas.
The property manager Miriam was absolutely excellent. She made sure that the hot tub was clean and water & chemical levels correct. If we needed housekeeping, she arranged it. If we wanted information about local services, restaurants, stores etc. - she was either found working around the property or just a WhatsApp / phone call away.
We have nothing negative to say about the place at all, neither did the few other guests that we met pooside. In fact, we originally booked it for 3 nights but were so impressed with Swan Villas, Placencia and the people that we dealt with that we decided to extend our stay an extra 3 weeks!..
...I don't think that you can get a better recommendation than that.
We are going to return in the future and have already recommended it to family and friends.

Loved the design of the place. Great location to go into Placencia town. If you want quirky and quiet away from touristy to-dos, this is it.
LaKesia K. Jul 2022
Beautiful place. Very kind workers. Horrible wifi connects most times no TV due to no wifi. No extra towels. No wash cloths. The workers made it worth sticking around because they made efforts that no one else would.
Manager response:
LaKesia, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we sincerely apologize for the challenges your party experienced during your stay. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience and hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

Jonae A. Feb 2022
The condo is unique and has great views! Check in process was easy
Michelle K. Feb 2022
The place was so eclectic and cool!! Close to eateries and I love having the bikes to ride.

One down fall, cold water in the shower and jacuzzi. With that being said…

I would still stay here again!
Johan L. Jan 2022
Was very good.
Krista S. Nov 2021
This was absolutely the coolest place I've ever stayed! The shower was out of this world. Check in was seamless and the contact person was quick to respond when we had a question. Would definitely stay with again.
Ana L. Oct 2021
An absolutely stunning beautiful home surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, a serene infinite pool and incredible ocean views. The staff was excellent in every way. We are well traveled and discerning guests, we are already dreaming of returning to Swan Villas.
Tudel T. Oct 2021
my wife and I love the place, very nice, very clean, the only bad thing is that you do not provide water to drink, as in my case I arrived at 8pm everything was closed and we drank water until the other day and we could not give water to our baby boy
Manager response:
Tudel, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed this home. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.
Abigail G. Aug 2021
This place was exceptional. We stayed in the Dolphin and it was one of the best places we have been to so far. The layout of the room along with the hot tub was perfect. Only thing I would recommend is for there to be blackout curtains that covers the whole window because when the sun rises, it gets too bright in the room. Other than that, I loved this place. Not to forget, the pool was awesome!
Manuel C. May 2021
This room is 10/10 beautiful and cozy. The pool could be deeper but for just relaxing it's perfect. The only issue in the room are the stones on the shower very hard to stand on to take a proper shower, maybe replacing them with one whole stone would be better? Aside from that the hot tub and room were outstanding. Will stay here again!
Natalia C. Apr 2021
Disfrutamos mucho nuestra estad[ia en Dolphin Swan Vilas, las casitas son una maravilla con mucho estilo, no dan ganas de ir al pueblo sino disfrutar de la casa y la pileta. Est[a un poco alejado de Placencia y supermercados, por lo que ir en auto es lo ideal. Nosotros no estabamos en auto, al super fuimos en las bicis del hotel y para ir a Placencia usamos bus (no pasan muy seguido) o un taxi $20 americanos. Todo el resto espectacular, tambien la ayuda de nuestra concierge Vero, que nos respondio y ayudo en cada consulta, antes y durante la estadia. Muchas gracias!!!
Cameron B. Oct 2020
Great amenities and location. I ended up loving having the hot tub in the living room. The kitchen is well-equipped and there is in-unit laundry and a dishwasher. I used both the kayaks and bikes - which were definitely a bonus as well. I hope to return.
Hannah H. Mar 2020
This was a really unique villa, great architecture and beautiful pool. Would of liked television upstairs but overall very good. Location is away from town and was nice and quiet. Our concierge Vero and her team were amazing in helping us plan excursions with the best value as well as give advice for the trip overall. We appreciate her help, wealth of knowledge and availability at short notices as well.
Katlyn P. Feb 2020
My husband, daughter and I stayed in the Dolphin Villa at Swan Villas and it was great! It is conveniently located to great restaurants and the grocery stores and didn't take us long to get into Placencia.

We loved the pool and spent a lot of time in there with our 9-month-old. It isn't very deep and the shallowest part was nice just to sit and play with her.

The villa had a washer/dryer combo that was useful, there were enough kitchen appliances and tools with a blender, toaster, and personal coffee machine as well as pots and pans.

The condo is very bright once the sun is up, so we did have to hang a blanket in the closet over our baby's playpen so it would be a bit darker for her to sleep. Because it is all open, sound travels and echos through the spiral staircase and up into the bedroom area. We just had to be mindful of that when our baby was sleeping or when someone was napping.

The shower is so cool with all of the plants and loose rock floor, it felt like showering in a jungle!

We had a great stay, and if we travel back to Belize, we would absolutely stay here again!
Michèle M. Jan 2020
Very nice villa with a great view on the lagoon. The pool area is beautiful, well run, private and clean. The concierge, vero, was extremely responsive and helpful. She helped us with every issue for reasonable rates.
You need a car if you don‘t want to cook yourself, restaurants are quite far for walking.
By night, it is quite dangerous to walk on the street, as the cars drive very fast.
For us it was impossible to open the lockbox. You don’t have to _squeeze_ but to push the the box against the wall to open.
To sum up, a nice place to stay for a couple of days and to enjoy the beauty of this place.
Erin E. Jan 2020
Difficult accessing this building. Had to try to track down the property managers and housekeepers to find the key because they weren’t where the instructions said they would be.
There is no coffee maker in the home and the tv doesn’t work. The spent 3 days here and the spa in the home never heated up, so in my opinion it not worth having in the unit. Contacted the property manager about this issue and they said it takes a while to heat up.

The pool is a nice addition. However, it was raining daily on and off so it was a bit too chilly to swim.
This location is about 20 minutes from Placencia.
Manager response:
We apologize for the difficulties you experienced during your time here. We have purchased a new TV and verified the coffee maker is working. Thank you!

We stayed in the swan villa (dolphin ) for 6 nights. We had a great stay and really enjoyed the unique space. At this property you are very close to several restaurants in Maya beach. The UMAYA and Maya Bistro were our favorites. It?s a 15 minute drive to downtown Placencia ... we ate at Wendy?s (not the fast food chain but a local restaurant) for breakfast several times. There is a very sweet black cat (Senior Blanco) at the property...pick up a few cans of cat food and he?ll hang out with you by the pool. We really enjoyed the stay and highly recommend swan villas.

Very clean, super beautiful!
Baptiste C. Nov 2019
Nice villas very quiet
Betty K. May 2019
Creative and lovely.
Kyle O. May 2019
The villa was stunning and perfect for a honeymoon. The location was conveniently placed a couple minutes from our favorite place to eat & catch happy hour at Maya Beach Bistro, and we were a quick 30 minute golf cart ride to Placencia. We would definitely recommend booking here and may be visiting again soon!

A recommander vivement
Viktors G. Mar 2019
Good air conditioning, attractive and clean pool, and an overall unique and enjoyable rental. It is built into a hill with reset windows, and everything molded into one piece.....bed, shelves, table, desk toylet paper holder. I had a car. It is a little far from town, so wheels is best. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. Overall, all good. No complaints. I rarely can say this.
Deborah B. Feb 2019
This place is so nice. Peaceful, beautiful views and private. I would stay again!!!
Pawel P. Dec 2018
Such a beautiful 10 days stay we had last November (2018) at the Swan Villas! Nothing really to complain about. Staff was wonderful and the property and the villa (Dolphin) we had was absolutely stunning! The owner upgraded us from the Shark studio to the Dolphin villa at no cost, thank you :). Loved everything about it. The decor, architectural design, layout, landscape design, patios/ balconies, the beach front in the back, the sea on the side for water activities, the infinity pool with sunset views, kayaks/ bikes free for use, the desk office space inside bedrooms, industrial grade appliances, fully loaded kitchen with a full size refrigerator, counter space in kitchen, the river stone rock parking lot. The shower was by far our favorite part! From the infinity pool to the attentiveness of the host David and our concierge Veronique - Swan Villas exceeded all of our expectations. There was always someone to answer questions and help us have an amazing stay!
Todd S. Oct 2018
My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Swan Villa. It's centrally located a terrific pool and common area. The property is very unique with a nice open floor plan. The kitchen was setup with everything you could need for preparing meals. The bubble pool in the front room was a Blast as well.. Without questions we would stay there again and have already recommended it to others. Our Concierge Veronique McKenzie took excellent care of us and made sure we had everything we needed to get on property and into our Villa. Again we would highly recommend the Swan Villa as a great place to stay when in Placencia.
Alaina H. Aug 2018
There is so much creative beauty and design in this villa! You will love and admire all the living plants throughout (especially the shower), the architecture of the villa, the privacy, the whirlpool tub in the living room, and the beautiful and private settings outside. The Dolphin villa offers beautiful views of the infinity pool and lagoon. You will not be disappointed with this unit!
Rodolfo A. Aug 2018
This home is perfect!
Many amenities at home and external activities like bike and paddle.
Julia D. Jul 2018
This is my second stay at Swan Villas and it will not be my last. The location, amenities, and architecture is absolutely stunning. The private infinity pool was perfect for morning swims and relaxation throughout the day. The Vacasa staff were attentive, knowledgable and helpful during my stay. Placencia is also the ideal location for people looking for solitude, good food and a peaceful holiday away from the typical tourist destinations. I will be back!
Brad M. Jun 2018
Incredibly unique and beautiful property. Our Concierge, Veronique Mackenzie, was a great help in making our stay special.
Cede J. May 2018
My husband I loved this little villa that contained everything we needed. We had some rowdy neighbors one night, the Internet was a bit slow and the whirlpool was quite chilly, but otherwise this was the perfect place for us and our time in Placencia. If we didn’t want to explore other countries, we would return again! Who knows, we might ☺️
Pamela N. May 2018
The villa was just as pictured, beautiful inside and out! Stayed in the salt water pool all day, loved it! Very clean and safe area, wifi worked very well. Emilio answered any questions and handled any issues, made stay very enjoyable. Wish there was more information of the unique building of the structure. Highly recommend you visit, plan to go again with grands.
Jana N. Feb 2018
My friend and I (both 24) are architecture students and of course we absolutely loved staying at the Villa. We were staying in the Dolphin villa which was just recently opened, so everything was brand new. The villa is more suitable for a romantic couple get away rather then two single friends, but we made it work. Be aware though that the shower is right in the bedroom and the Toilet downstairs is not sound proof! Its a very intimate place. Again great for couples! Arrange-able for friends. We had a fantastic time and loved the round bed!
Daniel R. Feb 2018
We loved Swan Villas. All the staff were very helpful and I highly recommend this property. Very clean and the amenities are in good condition.
