Robert's Grove Beach Resort is situated on the Placencia Peninsula, an 18-mile stretch of paradise that just out from the mainland in southern Belize, where the best beaches in Belize are located.
We are 100 miles south of Belize City and the International Airport; five miles from Placencia Village, and a half-mile from the village of Seine Bight. We are two miles from the Placencia airstrip.

How to get from Belize City to Placencia
There are three ways you can get to us - fly, drive or take a bus.
Taking the bus is the least desirable way to get to us. The busses are not air-conditioned, and they have a reputation for breaking down.
Because the roads were recently paved, it takes 3 1/2 hours to drive down from Belize. If you are planning to make a tour of the country, spending a few days in the Maya Mountains and a few days at the beach, you might want to rent a car. However, if you are just travelling Robert's Grove, we suggest that you fly to Placencia. The scenery driving down is quite lovely, but chances are, once you make the drive down, you won't feel like driving back (and if you are renting a car in Belize, you must return your vehicle to where you picked it up). Car rentals are also very expensive in Belize - from $75 US to $85 US per day.
Flying to Placencia from Belize City (a 30 minute flight) is the method we most recommend. There are frequent flights to Placencia from Belize City throughout the day on Tropic Air and Maya Island Air, Belize's two local airlines. We offer our guests complimentary pick-up and return service to the Placencia Airstrip. We are also happy to arrange your local flights at no extra cost.
The main points of interest on the Placencia Peninsula are so close in proximity that you'll be able to reach most places by foot or taxi cab.
