Sea View Suites
Ranked #9 of 27 Placencia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 May 2012

We traveled through Belize for 13 days and stayed at 5 different places, and this hotel was by far the most comfortable that we stayed at. It had the best beds, the best showers, the best air conditioning, the best tv, and the best wifi! It doesn't have a lot of character and it is not right on the beach... but it is very close to the beach and it does have a hot tub on the roof which we enjoyed every evening! It is also close to the docks and all the tour operators, lots of restaurants and bars. I would happily recommend this hotel!

We took took the Monkey River tour, across the water, up the river and into the jungle... lots of bugs, dress appropriately, and quite an experience hearing the howler monkees! The meal provided at Alice's Restaurant in Monkey River Village was a little lacking, but we had a good time.

We also took a snorkling tour to Silk Caye, a tiny island that is a long ways out, and is surrounded by reef! It was beautiful and fun..had a lunch with fresh grilled fish and chicken prepared on the island, delicious! And on the way back swam with huge turtles, nurse sharks, and sting rays....

My husband and I stayed at Sea View Suites for three nights April 6-8, 2012 after booking a king bed, non-smoking, sea view room three months in advance. The online service was prompt and friendly, and we felt the $75US plus 9% hotel tax rate to be reasonable. At the time of booking a 50% deposit of the total value was required which I found to be typical of most Belizean transactions. If driving be sure to ask for specific instructions to access the behind-hotel free parking lot. We never saw the owners while there but the on-site staff were courteous and conscientious. The hotel is well located centrally in Placencia village and is also ‘beach front’ as there is an empty lot between the building and the sea. Many restaurants and shops can be accessed with a short walk from the hotel. We were given room #1 on the ground level which was spacious and very clean with two moderate sized windows which when standing afforded a ‘sea view’ but not if seated or lying in bed. For such a huge room the bathroom was disproportionately small but well appointed with good quality towels and fixtures, and toiletries were restocked daily. The room furnishings (bed, tables, dresser, loveseat, chairs), linens and window treatments were attractive and of good quality. The air con worked great and there was free wifi access in the common hallway but not in the room. There was a microwave, coffee maker (but no coffee), bar fridge, mugs and glasses. Good quality beach towels were provided. We swam in the sea in front of the hotel; the water was pleasant but the beach not so much with lots of seaweed and litter. There was a second level with a few rooms that shared a balcony with nice views. We enjoyed the roof top deck very much; the views and breezes were inviting and the loungers and chairs plentiful. There was a fresh water shower which was useful after sea swimming and before using the hot tub. We also used the clothesline on several occasions. The staircase to access the deck was a small spiral one which may prove difficult to access if you are elderly or carrying a small child, etc. The common hallway of the first level can echo with extraneous noise totally dependent on the courtesy of your neighbours; one night we were woken at 3:30am by returning partiers and again at 7am by toddlers allowed by their parents to run up and down the hallway length. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Don’t count on actually seeing the sea from your room but make sure you enjoy the wonderful sea view...

Sea View Suites (Review)
If you come here in a few year's time these rooms may have lost their sea view, as there is a plot of land for sale right in front of the hotel. But if that happens you will, at least, know that they were not being 'economical with the truth' when they named it, but had had another building slapped up in front of them. In the meantime the views of the beach are great, especially from the third floor roof terrace, which has a Jacuzzi/Spa bath, sun beds and a thatched area to shelter from the sun (or even the rain). Rooms are a good size, with usually a Queen size bed and generous hanging/drawer space. But it is not really for those who want to self cater. There is a fridge, microwave and coffee maker (as beer and caffeine are my main needs this was not too much of a problem) The apartment is right next to the Swiss bakery which does great cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and in the evening there are masses of restaurants to chose from within close walking distance. Given that this is in the town, it is quiet, as it is on the walkway well away from the road.

Ok..The name is just not ture...There is no view to the ocean except one which faces the water room #2..Other than that the staff is very kind and will help you in any way they can, rooms are clean, great ac, tv etc....The location is great..Right in the village and everything you need is close...I would recomend this sweet place anytime, as long as you don't need to be right on the water...

We stayed only one night and I wished we had arranged to stay longer. The room was comfortable. Close to the beach. Safe. And, it had a terrific roof top area that was great to sit out there at night in the hot tub after a long day. I would definitely go back to stay there our whole stay when we go to visit Placencia again!!!

Room Tip: The second floor rooms have better views.

After traveling for 2 weeks throughout Belize and staying in about 7 hotels, this was one of the best. Amazing showers with loads of hot water and great pressure. One of the few places that had a fridge and movie channels, didn't see a single bug, well situated next to numerous restaurants, AC and fan, full length mirror in the bathroom, the room looked as nice as advertised, friendly staff, and most of all, CLEAN! The only small complaints I had were a slight moldy smell in the room (probably due to its proximity to the not-so-clean Placencia beach) and I wish the sheets had been changed during our stay. Didn't try the hot tub, but another guest said that the water was lukewarm. But all in all, a great stay. This hotel should be ranked higher.

Pluses - Rooms and public areas were very clean and comfortable; Air Conditioning worked well; Staff were freindly and helpful; Convenient location.

Not so great: Our rooms were at the back of the hotel. Windows were out to the back, necessitating the use of the A/C. The roof top had a great view, but was not really very comfortable - a couple of hammocks and plastic chairs.
