“an accidental treasure”
Reviewed 28 February 2011

We drove into Placencia with no plans for our hotel. The first night we needed two rooms, and we walked bys sea view but they only had one. bummer, we really liked the room.. The next day (when we needed only one room) we high -tailed it back to sea view and booked the room. Air, fan, sink, microwave, coffee pot with free filters, tv on wall , nice bathroom. We stayed four nights and would do it again.
Roof has a hot tub but I didn;t even try it. but the view was great. The hotel is right on the side walk but nice and quiet for sleeping!
The only slight disappointment is the distance to the beach, so no beach chairs or really nice trees to read under. The view at ground level was okay since the two lots in front have not been built on. Nice small hotel!

We literally stumbled onto this hotel. We were booked at a different room and were walking the concrete path seeing the other places. The new owner was out front putting in some new flowering plants and she stopped to talk with us. Mrs. Chan offered to show us a room and was eager to tell us about their recently purchased property. We went back to our room, checked out and hurried to our new home. Sea View Suites used to be La Chapelle. It's a concrete building with tile floors and 6 rooms. The furnishings are top notch. The beds are pillow top and very comfy. The closets are large enough for our suit cases to remain open and there is ample room for hanging garments. The bathroom is superior to many. The towels and sheets are of very good quality. The ceilings are 10'. The frig, coffee marker and microwave were very handy. The desk was a bonus for the laptop and the available wi-fi. There was a coffee table and loveseat in our room. Around 10pm they lock the front and backdoors for your security but you have a key to return as you want. My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Sea View Suites well enough that on our return from PG we stayed another 2 nights before we went to BZE to fly out. Marian Chan and her staff are excellent. The place is gorgeous and clean. It's comfortable and within walking distance of many dining and drinking locations. The front steps and stools on the deck are a great place for morning coffee and to greet the folks walking along. The bakery next door is good for breakfast and snacks. A SUPER GREAT benefit in Placencia is you can drink the water. And it's good. The view of the beach is wonderrful and the sound of the waves coming in is just right. Maybe you get the idea that we will return to Sea View Suites. They take credit cards or cash. It's a well run hotel and has the laid back feel. We made friends there and are now Sea View Suite's unofficial Ambassadors.

We had reservations at another place which were not to our liking and took a stroll along the narrow walkway when we happened on a lady who was supervising the planting of flowers in front of these suites. After talking with her a few minutes and expressing of our dislike of our last nights reservation she said that she had purchased this property a couple of weeks ago and showed us the rooms. We were overjoyed with what we saw and immediately cancelled our previous room and moved. The name, La Chapelle Suites has been changed to Sea View Suites but maintains the staff and is getting some updating and beautifications. I believe the charge is US $75. per night and worth every bit of that. We were impressed with the with the cleanliness, beds, size of the rooms and amenities such as a microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator, A/C, plus free internet connections. The sheets and towels were fresh and top quality. There is also a roof top area for lounging. The location is very central for shopping and eating. The service was exceptional. We are looking forward to a return visit and recommend anyone traveling to Placencia to be sure and check Sea View Suites for a great stay.

We came to Placencia not sure where we wanted to stay and saw La Chapelle. It is a charming place to stay in the middle of everything! Staff were extremely friendly and the price was great! We know where we will stay next time we come for vacation!

We checked in to La Chapelle Suites after a bad experience at another hotel. We were happy to find an extremely friendly staff and nice rooms. There are six guest rooms on the main floor and a roof deck with a hot tub up top. Our room was clean and comfortable including a/c, refrig & microwave, hi-speed access, and a modern bathroom. There was 24-hour security at the building, and staff on-hand to answer questions. The location was great for getting around town. After 5 nights in the hotel, I would highly recommend checking out this place.

We arrived in Placencia in the evening of June 18 to find that the electricity in our rental accomodation was shut off. It was too late for the tour company to contact anyone to have it restored so they made arrangements for us to spend the night at LaChapelle. They could not have found us a better place. Our room was wonderfully cool and the bed was very comfortable. The manager, Mark, sat with me for a long time the following morning filling me in on where to go and what to do in Placencia --- as well as directions to get there! Even though we were only there for one night, Mark was always available to talk to about anything and everything and his information helped make our stay in Placencia enjoyable and memorabl. My husband enjoyed many a chat with him during our two week visit. We are so grateful to Mark for taking us in on such short notice. If you want a safe, secure, cool (the air conditioning is such a welcome relief!), friendly place to stay while you are in Placencia, LaChapelle is one place you should consider. If you do, take advantage of Mark's knowledge of the village --- and say "hi" to him for me!
