SeaSpray Hotel is located on the northern end of Placencia, near where you enter the town. It is a nice hotel, though a bit rustic, as most hotels and rental cottages in Placencia are. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurants are nearby as is a Chinese-run supermarket only one block away. The restaurant on-site, De Thatch, has reasonably good, but not what I would call great, food. However, service is slow, so leave plenty of time to order and get your meals. The hotel keeps their part of the beach clean and there are nice Adirondack-type chairs to sun in. However, along the beach - and not just in front of the hotel - there is a strip of dead seaweed. This does not impede swimming in the warm water, though. I recommend the SeaStar room. It is second-story, but that just makes for a better view. It's ocean-front, the closest room they have to the ocean (it's an "end" room). I loved the nice porch with a hammock. Note that this room has no AC, but does have a ceiling fan (the room was pleasant in March as there is usually a breeze blowing through the room, due to it's end location). All and all, the SeaSpray Hotel is an enjoyable place to stay.
Caveat: the Tipsy Tuna Restaurant is about 150 yards away and they have LOUD live music on Friday and Saturday nights (until 2 in the morning). So if you are planning on staying at the SeaSpray Hotel on a weekend, bring along earplugs.
