The Placencia is a nice hotel and more upscale than many of the places in Placencia Village. We thought the hotel itself was beautiful and were happy with our stay. One thing to note is that this hotel is pretty far north on the Placencia peninsula so a car is beneficial if you want to get into Placencia Village.
The rooms are relatively small but very nice and we felt like we got good value for money paid. We would stay here again.
