Robert's Grove Beach Resort Coupons and Deals
Hacienda-Style Beach Resort with Marina and Dive Center Just off the Belizean coast lies the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the world’s second-largest reef, which stretches from Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula to Honduras’s Bay Islands. From Robert’s Grove Beach Resort in the Belizean town of Placencia, those looking to plunge down 100-foot channels and swim past gorgonian coral and schools of fish can start their adventure at the resort’s own marina and dive school. With kayaks, surfboards, and snorkel gear available for rental (and free with the island package), the resort encourages guests to discover the Caribbean on their own, but also offers snorkeling tours and guided visits to nearby Mayan ruins and the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. The hacienda-style resort sits on 22 acres of white sand right on the coast. Sunflower-yellow walls create a sunny feel inside the classic vista rooms, accented by furniture crafted from native woods, woven rugs, and original artwork. With the private island package, you’ll spend four evenings in a roomy one-bedroom villa at Robert’s Grove, then retreat to a breezy, oceanside cabana on the private island of Robert’s Caye for two nights. The main property includes two restaurants that overlook the Caribbean. Seaside Restaurant serves upscale dishes that Travel + Leisure called “some of Belize’s best cuisine,” and Habanero Mexican Café & Bar is a casual place where you can pair Mexican appetizers with margaritas or a pitcher of sangria. For more dining options, borrow bikes from the resort and pedal into the downtown area, where you’ll find several traditional restaurants cooking Belizean rice and beans. Placencia, Belize: Remote Town Surrounded by Sandy Beaches Just off the southeastern coast of Belize, the scenic Placencia Peninsula juts into the Caribbean Sea and runs parallel to the mainland for 16 miles. At its southernmost tip, you’ll find the namesake Placencia village, surrounded by pristine beaches, mangrove-filled lagoons, and tropical rainforests. You can explore the unspoiled land while hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, or kayaking—all popular pursuits here. Scuba divers flock to the area for renowned diving along the nearby Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest barrier reef in the world. It spans 185 miles and brims with reef sharks, loggerhead turtles, and moray eel. A day trip north to Dangriga, one of the largest towns in southern Belize, will immerse you in traditional creole, Mestizo, and Mayan culture. Dangriga is the birthplace of punta rock, a lively percussion-heavy musical style with a calypso influence. Ask around town about the few dance clubs where you might catch a live show, or at the very least a cold Belikin beer. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

The Destination Like blending cacao into chocolate, southern Belize melts Mayan ancestry with the Garifuna, Mayan, and Creole traditions. The mix lends a curious and charismatic character to Placencia, an unassuming slice of paradise on the Caribbean Sea. Off the grid and out of the sight lines of traditional tourists, this relatively untouched tropical oasis is a nature lover's dream, teeming with lush mangroves, secluded lagoons, and a host of wildlife from manatees to iguanas and monkeys. The Digs Scattered across 22 acres of tropical paradise in southern Belize, Robert's Grove Beach Resort's luxe lodgings and endless array of activities are just a few of the reasons Condé Nast Traveler readers voted it one of the Top 5 Hotels in Central America in 2012. Rooms boast authentic touches like handcrafted furniture, woven rugs, terra cotta-tiled floors, and original artwork. Drink in the views from your private terrace, and spot some of the 54 species of birds nesting on the peninsula. The Diversions Feeding times start early and often, tempting travelers with on-site baking, local rum, an extensive wine list, and poolside barbecues. Or if you prefer the thrill of the hunt, cast for up to ten different species of fish in the pristine waters surrounding Placencia. The resort's marina, dive center, and on-site fishing center can arrange tours of Belize's Barrier Reef or the resort's two private islands. Explore the newly cut trails in the Monkey River conservation area, where you'll get a close-up view of howlers, toucans, manatees, and maybe even the elusive jaguar. After the tour, sit for lunch at a local restaurant before returning to the resort to treat yourself with a body treatment at Sea Spa.

If true oceanfront relaxation is what you’re after, look no further than Robert’s Grove Beach Resort. This Belizean retreat, located on the famously picturesque Placencia Peninsula, is offering five nights for two in one of their charming Classic Vista rooms, each of which boasts a private terrace (for gazing at the ocean and palm trees, of course). Even though we wouldn’t blame you for moving from balcony to private beach to one of three pools to over-water palapa in search of the best views and most relaxing spot for reading and sipping a cocktail, it’d be a shame to come to this unspoilt corner of the world and not get out and about. Take advantage of the on-site dive shop and make the most of your unlimited use of the resort’s canoes, sailboats, Hobie cats, and numerous other water sport resources. Indulge with your included 45-minute Signature Massages for two. Bicycle the five miles into the charming town of Placencia or rent the resort’s golf cart for the afternoon. When you return home, take your pick of the three restaurants, all supplied by the resort’s organic garden. Now, this is how beach living should be.
