My friend and I stayed for 5 days at The Placencia Hotel and Residences in a 1 bedroom beach view room August 15, 2013. The room was basic but comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and very clean. There is a very nice large pool with swim up bar.
This resort is ocean front but the water is more like a lake, murky green and no waves, not even a ripple. I did not even go in the water because it is not clear. I did see lots of small jellyfish. This was disappointing.
The staff and management were wonderful. Very friendly people who did there best to make sure we had our needs met. They took us on a tour of the Mayan ruins, which was great.
It was a great disappointment that my friend and I were the only guest at the resort. We like to meet and mingle with others and we were totally alone. The resort is not close to anything so there was nowhere to go. No shopping, restaurants, bars, etc unless you go to Placencia which is about 20 minutes away. The resort had a shuttle that took us into town and back one day. It is a very small town.
The resort is lovely, staff great, but I wouldn't go back. It is a little too remote for me.
