An excellent little inn. It is good value for money, and I didn't miss that it wasn't right on the water. It's only about 100 yards until you get to the white, sandy beach, and it was nice to be able to relax on the hammock outside the inn, hearing the sounds of the ocean splash against the shore. It's... More

My husband & I have been to Placencia for the last 3 years and have always stayed at an array of different places. This year, we stayed at Manatee Inn for the first time (stayed 10 days) and without a doubt, it is now our favorite. We definitely found the place we will be staying at on our future trips... More

The Manatee Inn was a very nice, quiet and clean place to stay in Placencia. We thought the accomodations were above average for the price of the room and really enjoyed being tucked away a bit from the other places. I suppose spoiled tourists would want to be pampered more, but anyone with a realistic sense of the area and... More

I viewed the ratings and reviews and I thought to myself--this is going to be great, #3 ranking on the list of places to stay in Plancencia-nice!. After my one night experience, I have a hard time trying to figure out how this place was rated #3 and why??? We came to Manatee Inn after a long bus ride from... More

We turned up at the Manatee Inn in Placencia after a hectic few months in Central America. We had previously been adv ised to go to Cape Caulker both by Lonely Planet and other travellers, but when we arrived in Placencia we knew we'd made a good decision. Our room at the Manatee was on the corner of the top... More

A couple of friends and I spent the last two weeks traveling around Belize on a budget. I am so glad that we stumbled upon the Manatee Inn, because this was the best place we stayed throughout our trip. From the moment I laid eyes on the place I fell in love. The woodwork is beautiful and the hammocks on... More

My husband and I spent several days at the Manatee Inn and enjoyed the quiet, convenient, and comfortable stay. The inn is just off the walk, and located at a quieter end of town but walking distance to restaurants and activities. There's a fridge in the room, a flush toilet and nice decor in the spartan room. We were on... More

In November 2009, I had the good fortune to be the guest of Slavek Machacka and his friend, Jarka, for two nights at their Manatee Inn in Placencia. Since I was travelling alone for that leg of the trip, I wanted a basic, quiet, comfortable, safe place where I could retreat from the touristy beach scene at the end of... More

The Manatee Inn rocks! After a long day of travel, the Manatee Inn and its hosts, were exactly what the doctor ordered! The place is clean, quiet, enjoyable, and right next to the beach. Linens and towels were changed daily and there is even a laundry service avail. for a small fee. Each room has a private bath and shower.... More
