Absolutely Amazing Private Island Experience that is affordable! Enclave Belize

My family visited Enclave Belize for the second time last week. Since last summer on our first trip, there have been several improvements to an already excellent private island experience. The first class service, exclusive and spacious living quarters, private pool and beach, private chef and premier location of Enclave makes for a once in a lifetime vacation experience for groups of 10-28 people. Also the value proposition is unbeatable. The rental cost for the island is very affordable and our food costs for our group were only $110 per person for the whole week! I highly recommend Enclave for anyone looking for a unique vacation experience. Belize is an amazing place to visit with awesome diving, Mayan ruins, tons of activities all in a very friendly, English speaking country. We will be back!

Loved everything about this place!

From the first day we arrived, to the last moment we left, our experience at the Enclave was nothing short of perfection. The staff at The Enclave were the most hospitable and accommodating to our entire group. With a fully rented private island, you would expect some hiccups along the way, but we had smooth and effortless communication with the entire staff and our trip was made so much more memorable due to their attention to detail every step of the way. Each home is equipped with very comfortable beds, pillows, fresh linens, convenient personal coffee stations and large bathrooms. The staffs accommodations for laundry on site, fresh made beds, fresh flowers and consistently clean towels and robes made this place so comfortable. The attention to the architectural details included in each home, especial each view, was something to appreciate. The communal gathering areas where so large and accommodating for our large group. Each meal, prepared by an amazing chef!, was able to be enjoyed with everyone having a seat at one table. Games were always present in the outdoor living space, as well as plenty of water activities to enjoy. The staff was always present and on hand to aid in any activity we wanted to do, and they actually were encouraging and never inconvenienced with a request. Everyone in our group has nothing but great comments and standing ovations for this place. We look forward to rebooking soon!

Great stay at The Enclave

7 Couples stayed here for 1 week and a good time was had by all. The guest houses were very comfortable, I cannot remember I time after a week I didn't miss my own bed but these were extremely comfortable. Lots to do with swimming, kayaking paddle boards, fishing . Town was a minute away. The food was very good and extremely reasonable on our island and in town . Be sure to go to the Taco Stand and the Barefoot Beach. What really made this special was the warmth of the Belizean people especially those at the Enclave. Thanks Maggie,Anderson,Dion,Matthew Cindy and Carla the whole island was impeccably clean at all times and we wanted for nothing.

Our Stay in Placencia

Our stay was wonderful, the grounds were immaculate, our rooms were clean and orderly everyday from Cindy and Karla in housekeeping. The food, well the food was Amazing! We all went out to eat at one of the restaurants and we all decided to stay at the Enclave the rest of the week because the food Jim and Maria cooked was far more appealing. Emmerson was a fantastic host, we asked and he did, from being a bartender , getting supplies that we asked for, booking our excursions, etc.. Mathew and Anderson were also fantastic, We asked Mathew for a couple of sunset boat rides and he was on top of it. Anderson was always asking if we needed anything and besides that he always kept the pool area clean. These people you have working for you made us feel like family. They made our vacation PERFECT! The Enclave itself is amazing, beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. We couldn't of asked for a better place to stay. We will come back ! Sincerely, Rodney Grau

Enclave was absolutely amazing

We were looking for a getaway for 19 of us for an 80th birthday celebration for the matriarch of the family. We needed somewhere where the older generation could relax while the teenagers could be entertained. Enclave could not have been more perfect. The setup is amazing and they have thought of everything including spikeball, cornhole, volleyball, kayaks, paddleboards, fishing gear, etc. The villas are exceptional - incredibly comfortable and roomy accommodations including outdoor and indoor showers and views from your bed overlooking the ocean. The staff was absolutely a 10. Friendly and always willing to help make things perfect. We were a challenging group food-wise with many different allergies and dietary restrictions and they made it all work seamlessly. We even had to take one of the kids to doctor for a bad ear infection in the dark and they found one who could see him asap and they took us 20 minutes by boat and a few minutes by car to get him taken care of. The island is perfectly situated just off the mainland but still gives the privacy of a remote island. We snorkeled there and saw fish and starfish and caught a bunch of fish. The game room set up was perfect for hanging out, playing games, watching movies, celebrating the birthday, and for a family meeting although we spent most of our time in the main pavilion doing the same types of things. We even had a couple of days of abnormally bad weather which could have put a damper on a typical trip but at the Enclave we had a great time. They coordinated our travel from Belize City and some excursions for us through Captain Jak's (and assisted in moving them around due to the weather). The rain did bring out some gnats/mosquitos but nothing a good bug repellent couldn't handle. The only negative to the whole trip is that we didn't stay longer. Would HIGHLY recommend this place to any large group. Looking forward to another opportunity to get back to Enclave.

Awesome 60th Birthday Celaberation !!!

This was a getaway for my 60th birthday. There were 16 of us. Close Family & Friends only. As soon as you set foot on the island..... Its love at first site. And we got there at night in the dark. Woke up in the morning & it was even better. The WHOLE staff was amazing. The Enclave is very close to the mainland Placencia. Approx one mile. But anytime you want to go, just let Emerson or Matthew know. Day or late night. Dion, our chef created amazing dishes. Anderson was the jack of all trade there and was very helpful with everything. Cindy our cleaning person, made sure everything was always clean. There are 7 villas. We used all of them. All face the ocean from the back & the view is amazing. Not only were we there for my 60th ( Dion baked a delicious cake ) but also New Years. The Staff stayed in to make the New Years experience memorable. We lacked for nothing & I will definitely do another trip.

Amazing Private Island Experience!

We love The Enclave! It’s the perfect spot to bring family, friends or co workers. We love the privacy of the island but the close proximity to the mainland. The island is beautiful and designed perfect for get together. There are 7 individual villas and then several meeting areas to gather together. My kids loved the game room and the pool, they also played in the ocean and lot and swam around. Whereas, I enjoyed the dining experience and the outdoor living room. The food was amazing! We made our menu before we came on the trip. When we got to the island they had already stocked our food and drinks and then prepared any meal that we wanted. We enjoy going to the mainland to eat also so that’s the beauty of this island. If you want to experience Belize’s culture you are only 1 minute away by boat. They are willing to take you back and forth on the boat whenever you wish. This is an amazing island and we can’t wait to go back!!!

Incredible experience and accommodations!

We recently stayed at the Enclave at the end of September. We had 19 in our group and all had such a wonderful time. The staff was very attentive and the food was great! We all enjoyed the main area with swimming, playing life size Jenga, dancing, playing pool, and listening to music together as a group. The rooms were AMAZING and the beds felt like you were sleeping on a could. We can't wait to go back next summer and take family and friends again.
