We arrived in Placencia after driving down from Chetumal, Mexico. We had checked out a few places online previously and thought the Garden Cabanas looked pretty good. We stopped by the office and were greeted by Veronique and Ana. Veronique was rather abrupt and none too friendly but we booked a cabana anyway. We moved our stuff in and were a bit unhappy to find the cabana rather dirty but we had already paid so felt that we could not go back and ask for it to be properly cleaned.
There was a dead frog laying in the sink and a condom!!! on the floor of the shower. EW! This really grossed me out and to top it all off I had to keep returning to the office to get my change which they never seemed to have and when they finally did I was shortchanged.
The cabanas themselves are cute but the dirtiness factor as well as having to return numerous times to the office put me off.
