Today’s guest post is by Nadine McCauley from Barrie, Ontario, Canada. It was love at first site. Nadine and her husband Phil have been to Mariposa twice in one year and are booked for another stay in May 2015. The popular Belize Bed and Breakfast has only been open for one year and so the May trip being their third stay, says a lot. Owner Sharron Maddison says she loves them.
On our first trip to Placencia, my husband Phil and I rented bicycles the day before we were set to leave the village. During our bicycle ride, we accidentally stumbled upon the Mariposa and had lunch. We were amazed at the beautiful villa and stunning location on a quiet stretch of beach. As we were leaving, Bruce offered to show us one of their suites which was even more incredible because each of the lower suites has two french doors that open to a patio facing the pool and ocean. A couple of days later, when our scheduled accommodations in the Maya Beach area didn’t work out and we were temporarily homeless for the last few days of our vacation, we knew we were going right back to the Mariposa. We didn’t even call ahead, just showed up with our luggage and said “Hey, you still have that room available?” Lucky for us, they did! Our second stay was for 7 days, over New Year’s and we loved it. We are currently planning our third stay at the Mariposa in May.
Mariposa bed and breakfast Belize is one of the best places to stay. Situated just outside the Placencia Village, close enough to get to by bicycle or golf cart but far enough away to provide a nice quiet beach with significantly less foot traffic. The villa has only three suites and an upstairs restaurant providing excellent food, great service and a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. The accommodations are spacious and immaculate with an oceanfront furnished patio, hammock, room service and swimming pool. We just didn’t want to leave. A full breakfast is included with your stay and Bruce makes a wicked Eggs Benedict. Bruce and Sharon are amazing hosts, so accommodating and helpful, we always feel at home. Can’t wait to return.

I have not stayed their either David but also enjoyed the restaurant and the delicious food. Got invited to Carlos’ birthday Party there, it was a great place for a party and the cake was to die for 🙂
Although I didn’t stay at the Mariposa Suites ( already had accommodations) I was given a tour by Sharon the owner, they are beautifully done and well furnished. However I did eat repeatedly at the Mariposa Restaurant which is located on the top, 2nd, floor which provides a beautiful view of the sea, pool, beaches etc. I did not return for the scenery. I returned for the amazing quality of the food. Being an expert on French Dip I can say that that they have the best. Sharon and her husband Bruce are also wonderful and accommodating hosts.
