Should I drive or fly to Placencia? 

FLYING – The flight from Belize City to Placencia is 25 - 30 minutes and cost $243.50 round trip per person. Once we receive your group’s international flight details, we will book your local flights and arrange pick up from the Placencia airstrip to the property. 

PRIVATE SHUTTLE – The drive from Belize City to Placencia is 3 hours and cost $550 round trip for up to 3 passengers then $50 for each additional person round trip. 1 hour is through the rainforest and unbelievably beautiful. Once we receive your group’s international flight details, we will book your shuttle to the property.

DRIVING – for a week trip as long as you have at least 4 people per vehicle driving ends up being less expensive than flying. The drive is 3 hours with easy to follow directions. 1 hour is through the rainforest and unbelievably beautiful. We do advise trying to get to the house pretty close to dark as there aren’t a lot of street lights in Belize. With that being said a flight arriving at 4pm or later will not allow you to get to Placencia before dark and the drive in the dark is much harder and NOT advised!

Dream Thanksgiving Trip

Our group stayed at the Enclave for thanksgiving. Every aspect of this trip was perfection. Oz was amazing, tending to our every need throughout the entire trip. The chef prepared meals quicker than we could eat them, and each one was amazing. There are fresh squeezed juices every morning. On Thanksgiving they even prepared for us a traditional American Thanksgiving meal. All the other staff was great as well and each one worked extremely hard to make our trip great. The island itself is stunning and during construction no detail was missed. We had entertainment brought in multiple nights from Masseuses, to fire throwers, to drummers, and bartender, each person was so kind and fun. If you can eat off the island be sure to check out tipsy tuna and barefoot. We had an amazing time snorkeling through Captain jaks as well. You also can snorkel right off the dock and see small fish, starfish, and sting ray. Bring bug spray as the island sprays for bugs but if you go anywhere else you will need it. I cannot say enough great things about The Enclave, and we will be back!

Perfect in every way!

It took me a while to write this review because I had to come down from all of the pampering! First a BIG shout out to Oswin, George, Mario, and Marlow! There was not one need that they didn't attend to. Any problem that might have arose was dealt with immediately, even if it was a complete inconvenience. Oswin was our on-site concierge. He was wonderful. He was even kind enough to break out his bar tending and swimming skills! George, our chef, came through with every single meal. Perfection! He even made reservations for us at a local restaurant when we wanted to go to the mainland. (Highly recommend the Rumfish in Placencia). Mario and Marlow were our boat drivers and handymen. No matter how many trips we wanted to take into the island, they were more than happy to do so! To say that they went above and beyond for us would be an understatement. They were part of our group by the end of the week with invitations to visit us all in the States! The cleaning crew was terrific. The beautiful rooms were kept impeccable. They were even brave enough to do our laundry for us twice during the stay! And I could not have planned this trip without my man, Henry! He was there to reassure me throughout the whole planning process. He took it the extra mile in every step, from the menu planning, to the airport, to the massages and last minute excursions. We had to make a last minute flight change for one couple and it was done with complete ease. The one downfall would be the sandflies. We all came home with bug bites, but we know this is not something that can be helped. It just goes with the territory. The staff does spray on a daily basis and we are instructed to either be off the island or inside. We usually hit up the indoor game room at this time. It only takes about a half hour a night. For one of the nights, Mario even offered to take us on a sunset cruise. For our return trip, we will know to bring some brightly colored pants and shirts to wear in the early mornings or evenings at sunset. And we will all be returning!!! Thank you Enclave staff! It was PERFECT!!!

Simply Amazing

12 of us traveled to this private island for a friend's birthday. Talia was very helpful and thorough with all of our pre-arrival questions. Upon arrival to BZE airport, our group was personally escorted through security to board the smaller plane (Maya Air) to transport us to Placencia. We were warmly greeted by Henry in Placencia. We arrived early, so our houses weren't quite ready. No problem, though. Henry provided beverages and told us about the island while we waited. Mario then picked us up on the boat and took us directly to the island. It was a great opportunity to see the ocean and then... wow... The Enclave! The friendly team greeted us with beverages, a smile, and a tour. Each house is beautiful! They are a little close together, but you cannot hear/see each other when you're inside. This was no issue for us. They are all modern, very clean and beautifully decorated! Our personal favorites were Woodpecker and Scarlet Macaw because of the views. It was so beautiful and peaceful to wake up to those amazing views! Laundry and cleaning service ladies were awesome too. The chef (George) and assistant (Michael/Miguel and Marlon) were amazing! George prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for us every day. We own a restaurant, so good food is key for our travels. George did an amazing job with our meals and accommodated several of our guests' different dietary restrictions. The food and friendly service was a highlight for sure!! It rained every day, but that wasn't a problem. There are so many activities on the island (and in town) that it didn't stop us from having fun. There are kayaks, ping pong, Jenga, corn hole, cards, volleyball, shuffleboard and an indoor "game" room. Several of us got massages on the island and all were very good! We also went deep sea fishing and they cooked the fish that evening for us. I recommend these activities, along with the ATV tour and tubing tour (by Captian Jaks and Fred at Mayan World Tours). All were great activities! We rented an extra golf cart and drove around Placencia. You could walk to a lot of shops, bars and restaurants, but it was fun riding the golf carts as well! The town is very laid back and every place we visited was friendly and good. You could also buy groceries and alcohol in town. Tip: buy ABC in duty free in BZE airport and bring a lot of bug spray (only negative here). Overall, trip of a lifetime thanks to the beautiful island and staff!! THANK YOU x100!

Family Holiday

The facilities are clean and in excellent shape. The staff were friendly and helpful. The sand flies are bad - might be in outdoor furniture. Overall we had a great time.

Trip of our Dreams

Wonderful staff, always ready to assist. Food was fantastic! Views, & property are gorgeous. Seemed to have incredible silent lightning storms at night for a spectacular show & days were sunny & gorgeous! What a neat phenomenon. A bit too many black flies- so come prepared. Incredible vacation! Thank you!

Personal Exclusive Resort...

Personal Attention was the name of the game from Day 1...And with this in mind made our stay at the Enclave Fun, Relaxing and Worry Free. It is hard for me to think about a time I have thought a property exceeded the pictures, but the Enclave is a place that did. The Villas were well appointed and common areas were perfect for our needs. The Staff Was Awesome!!!!....But now to what made it Great...Talia and her staff were totally committed to make your stay perfect from the moment the reservation was made. About half of our guest used air transport to Placencia, and the other used ground from Belize City. Both ways went off without a hitch. The food on the island was very good, it was really good to start early in developing your menu. The Chef was able to make all our requests come true. The rest of the items were handled the same way, whether it was extra Golfcarts to Excursions, Talia and Company were on it and made it happen...It is also nice to visit the Village of Placencia, Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s are a little more hopping due to Cruise ship arrivals but it was no where near crowded....For a final word, most of us stayed on the island relaxing and enjoying what it had to offer.....But Fun was had by ALL!!!

Private Island Perfection

We had a large group of friends celebrating 40th birthdays and chose to stay at The Enclave. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would highly recommend it and even visit again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Villas were all beautiful. Not a bad room on the island! The food that the chef prepared for us was delicious, fresh and made from scratch. The concierge was very helpful with arranging excursions and spa treatments. Our trip had the perfect balance of relaxation, adventure, and fun! Highly recommended!

Island Paradise

If you ever wanted to experience private island life then you should go to Belize. The Enclave on Placencia Caye was an amazing place to spend 7 days. The private chef is incredible with food selection you will not get anywhere else. The staff are at your call for anything you might need to make your stay the best. The casitas were amazing with tons of privacy and beautiful views from everywhere you look. We are already scheduled for next year and can’t wait to get back. You really do get caught up in the beauty and are able to truly relax. They can personalize any meal you want and take care of any dietary needs from your group. I can’t say enough about the staff and there ability to meet our needs. Don’t miss out on a vacation of a lifetime. Our whole group rebooked while sitting on the island.

Perfection in Placencia

I can't say enough good things about this property and its staff. From start to finish, they do everything right. Any questions we had were immediately addressed, as any first-class operation would do. We were a group of 13 renting the island. The well-planned design of the space allowed each couple to have their own villa, offering privacy and some down-time, while still allow plenty of community space to enjoy group company. All of our meals were at the large table by the pool. The chef Isa was amazing. Even our picky eaters loved his meals. Fibiano, our boat captain, was always on time and friendly with our transportation to and from the island. Jessica gave wonderful massages and kept our rooms and our laundry clean and fresh. Adil and Namir were fabulously friendly and answered our questions and helped us in any way they could. Mario also was always available for any of our needs. In a word, this is a perfect place. Their dedication to guest satisfaction is obvious! I highly recommend! PS. fishing off the pier is a success and kept many in our group occupied for hours! Our group regularly caught fish. We also enjoyed the pool, the game room, and the water toy.s. Fantastic stay!
