We stayed one night here before starting a charter from The Moorings sailboat rentals across the street. This is the hotel The Moorings uses for its Belize base due to proximity, and although at bases in other countries these nearby hotels have turned out to be purely functionary (or barely bearable), this one was a great value for the money, and got us off to a nice start of our sailing vacation.
We booked into a courtyard room, and although it was small, it was very clean and had a spacious enough bathroom and balcony, and air conditioning that would get as cold as you could want it to be. The grounds had tidy walkways through topical landscaping, and the pool was a focal point for a family group that was staying there, with kids and parents alike having a great time. The restaurant was open air (with a roof, but no real sides), a good menu, very tasty food, and terrific service - actually, service throughout the hotel was very warm and friendly.
We were pleased all around and would not hesitate to stay here again if chartering in Belize. The only caution for vacationers was that its distance from the center of Placencia (the tip of the peninsula) requires a taxi for getting to the shops and restaurants; too far to bike ride safely. If you want a Placencia hotel that you can walk from, this is not likely what you are looking for.
