There so many positives about this resort but the friendly and helpfull staff top the list. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is cheerful and friendly willing to see to your needs. Here are some hints that might help visitors. 1. The resort is about a 25 minute drive from Placencia. There are no shops or stores in the resort and... More

All those negative reviews from 24 months ago, may or may not be accurate, but I tell you, as of Christmas 2014, this place is first rate! a) this is Placencia, not San Pedro, so being close to "town" is unimportant because there is no town, NOT compared to San Pedro, b) Lawrence and his wife are amazing FRENCH chefs,...

First thing to know about The Placencia Hotel is that it is NOT located in the Placencia village. It is a 25 minute shuttle ride to the village and the hotel provides complimentary shuttle rides at certain times or charges you $20USD to drop you in the village. You can ride a bike to the village no problem but just... More

Accomodations were very beautiful. A suite with kitchen, king size bed, huge bath with Jacuzzi and overhead shower. I especially enjoyed the view of the pool and grounds from my second level porch. Oh and the pool was AWESOME. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Thanks Tara for the ride into Placencia Village when the resort van had some issues!... More

Please note that this review is based on the experience/food that I experienced while staying 2.5 days on a workshop organised by my employer, so I am not sure how much was paid, or if we received the same food and drinks as regular guests do. The room was lovely, the grounds lovely, the staff reasonably friendly (but often didn't... More

The perfect combination of adventure travel and luxury accommodations. Definitely top of the line in every way. The guest suites are setup perfectly. The pool is gorgeous. The food was excellent. We visited during Lobsterfest and found ourselves sampling some items not usually on the menu; lobster lasagna, lobster coconut pie, lobster cupcakes.. it sounds a little "iffy" but it... More

What an amazing experience! We loved every minute and we're already planning our return trip. We had a one bedroom suite and the accommodations were perfect. The restaurant was amazing so I didn't really use the kitchen, but, it was nice to have the fridge. Also, my husband is an early riser so he made use of the living area... More

This is a very nice resort with the place looked after very well. It was the off season when I was there so very few people staying. It might have something to do with the fact it is 10 miles away from the town so any trip was $25 each way. The food was OK but not great. There is... More

My first trip to Placencia, Belize was amazing and The Placencia Hotel is a beautiful property. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The food is delicious; I tried everything on the menu. At some point you will meet Leaurant, the chef. He just might surprise you with one of his special dishes. There is a small gym to workout... More
