We stayed at the Enclave with a group of 15 and had a great time. The facility is always clean, food is always great and it is the ideal island hang out! The staff are very friendly as well. The lead man Gareth is a great guy and easy to talk to. I definitely recommend this place! :) OH also, the small dog Luna that visits every now and then is a sweetie! :)

The Enclave is by far THE place to go if you want a TRUE vacation. The island is amazing, it’s all yours, the accommodations are 5-star, and the staff is at your disposal 24/7. Whatever you need, whatever you want, it’s yours. If you’re looking to “find your beach”, look no further. And don’t forget the AMAZING excursions!

Amazing private island with first class lodging

Enclave at Placencia Caye is truly a first class experience for the discerning traveler looking for an intimate getaway on a private island that is very accessible to the mainland by its own private boat. The 7 private units are very well appointed and spacious (up to 1,100 sq ft) with private outdoor showers and patios, TV's and WiFi. The island has its own private pool, beach area, game room with multiple games, kitchen and dining and sitting areas. The staff is amazing and cater to all your needs. They cook all of your meals, clean up after you, make you cocktails, clean your rooms every day (including laundry service), book tours for you and much, much more! For my week, our breakfast, lunch and dinners cost each guest only $35 per day! Meals prepared by Jim were very high end (awesome) and included lobster and desserts. The menu is configurable to meet guests' needs. Guests bring their own alcohol which also saves money and can be purchased at very reasonable prices in the Belize International airport. The property and grounds were extremely maintained and had great views of the ocean, marina and mainland. We did several excursions - all of which picked us up and dropped us off right at the island's private pier. Placencia is an amazing place with a quaint town featuring fantastic bars, restaurants and shops and multiple excursion opportunities. The diving and snorkeling in this part of Belize is some of the best in the world. There is also cave tubing, zip-lining, jungle and Mayan ruins tours and much more. I highly recommend renting this island for small family and friend groups, weddings, corporate events or other occasions. We are planning our next trip for 2019 already!

The Enclave is a oasis of luxury & privacy!

We arrived with friends and family and were immediately welcomed by the amazing staff of the Enclave resort island. Over the next week we basked in the luxury of the private estate in our own cabin with all the amenities. Each day we were served freshly cooked meals and any/all special requests were always accommodated. The island gives phenomenal proximity to the many activities beautiful Belize has to offer including scuba diving, private island tours, cave tubing, private beaches, easy access by a quick boat shuttle to the friendly town of Placencia and many other things! If you are looking for that unique vacation experience in an environment that caters to your every whim, then the Enclave on Placencia Caye is for you!!!

Enclave Island was an amazing place to stay!

I didn't know what to expect when renting our own private Island but I would have to say that it was an amazing experience. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped us plan our days with excursions and I found the food the chef prepared very enjoyable. I have stayed at some of the top boutique hotels in the world but after this experience I would highly recommend the intimacy of renting your own Private Island!

Nothing but great things to say about this Island

From the moment we arrived to the Island to the time we left I have nothing but great things to say about this Island Oasis. We were greeted by the staff with hot towels and they too our luggage and placed it in our individual rooms.My husband and I stayed in the Red Footed Booby room and it was absolutely perfect for us. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a large bathroom with two sinks and even an outdoor shower and bath ( my favorite). The AC worked great and we had a fridge and couch in our room. There was an upstairs area with two beds that would be perfect for someone with children. There was wifi in our room which was nice to have when we needed to get a little work done. Our rooms were cleaned every day by our maid and they would even do yoru laundry should you request that. Food/ Drink: Our bar fridge was stocked with all sorts of juices, sodas, and beer when we arrived, they even made a welcome rum punch for us upon our arrival. Our chef Jim was such a great cook! His meals were well-balanced and so very tasty…. I wanted to bring him home with us. He was very accommodating to everyone’s individual dietary restrictions and would serve us meals at whatever time we requested. I loved that he cooked a lot of meals with an Island flair and some dishes that were somewhat of a local cusine. Fish and Lobster were a few of my favorites. Every night he even made a different dessert which we all enjoyed. The staff had coffee for us ready every morning when we woke up which was a nice treat! Staff: Huge thanks to Gareth, Josh, and Jose, (and Jim of course). They would literally do anything we asked of them and were very happy to please. They had good recommendations on local excursions and would even make the arrangements for us. I wanted to fish one day and the boys went and grabbed me a pole and bait and even hooked it up for me. Every night they would pick up the common areas and clean up anything we had left out the evening before. They would go to the store for any extra food, snacks, or alcohol that we wanted. The guys would take us on the private boat to the mainland anytime, we went to Rumfish for dinner with the group one of the nights we were there to give the chef a night off. They kept the Island very clean and tidy for us, they were constantly working on something to maintain the cleanliness. Activities: The island is packed with things to do and keep you busy. There are kayaks, paddleboards, a pool table, volleyball net

Bucket List Worthy Experience

Seven individual bungalows on an impeccably designed island off the coast of lovely Placencia, Belize. Iconic white sand beach that Placencia is known for continues on Enclave Island. The Enclave has pelicans, iguanas, hermit crabs and geckos cruising around on the mangrove trees surrounding the island. The island is located on a waterway that the local fish swim in and out of daily so there’s always fishing off the dock. We also saw Dolphins off the dock as they played and fished for there dinner. All the rooms/bungalows are beautifully decorated and kept deliciously cold in humid Belize. What an added bonus that each on have an outdoor shower in every suite! The on-island service is impeccable. Josh & Garreth were thoughtful and attentive during our week stay. It's a true "concierge" feel from the boat ride to the island to helping secure off-island excursions to the personalized menu. They made us feel like royalty! Thank you Enclave for ticking off an item on our Bucket List that we didn't even know existed!

Best trip ever!

I have been to Placencia, Belize many times but this was by far my best experience and it's all because of The Enclave and the staff! We had a quick flight down from Texas to Belize City then a quick prop plane flight over to Placencia. A van picked us up from the airport and drove us to the boat. The boat then took us to The Enclave. Everything was already planned for us so we didn't have to do anything! The staff was amazing and cooked delicious meals for us, cleaned our rooms daily and even washed our clothes that we put in the basket. The bed was so comfortable with top of the line sheets and towels. Everything was so luxurious! There was a binder on the counter that had tons of activities that we could do in town so there was plenty to do. We spent most of our time on the island fishing off the dock (we caught plenty fish), playing volleyball in the pool, playing corn hole, ping pong, etc. The best part is all hanging out in the living room all together but when you want your personal space you just go to your beautiful room and relax. They even had large flat screen TVs in every room and in the living room so we didn't miss our football games. I can't say enough good things about this place. We are already planning our next trip to The Enclave!

This was the best week I have had in years.

The family and friends get together was great and even made better by our islands private surroundings and the helpful staff. The staff prepared delicious meals which often included local lobsters, prepared cocktails from the bar and gave us informative tips for fishing off the docks. Weather which had been a concern, I found that it only rained briefly on the day I left. Night time I slept with the slider door open to listen to the sounds of the ocean waves and let the cool sea breeze and fresh ocean air in. (There is A/C . I found it not necessary) The island has many amenities such as a game room, pool, dock fishing, outdoor kayaking, outdoor games etc but it is also just a hop skip and a jump to snorkeling, Mayan ruins, cave tubing, sea fishing, spice farms, the town of Palencia and scuba diving and other tours. I hope to return next year.

Fantasy Island

What a wonderful place! The whole island was truly a fantasy. From the sincerely wonderful staff to the decadence of amenities, the property was so much more then I could of imagined. The proximity to the village makes it quite convenient to, but it also fosters some privacy from the main peninsula. Every building on the property was finished with thought and luxury. The main entertaining area had such a great flow with the pool and patio area. The locally sourced fresh servings from the island chef was exquisite. We were even able to paddle board, fish off the pier, and have a foosball tournament. What a great place hosted by a great staff. We will be back!
