My family and I stayed at the Placencia in June 2015. We got the rooms at such a great rate (on vacasa.com) that we were somewhat suspicious that we had been duped (we had never booked on Vacasa and had never been to Belize). We were pleasantly surprised when we found the resort to be as good as advertised. The... More

This resort is very well laid out, with a massive, central pool featuring a swim-up bar, large water fall, and varied depths for alternatively lounging and more active play. The built-in lounge chairs in the pool's center were excellent, as was the main restaurant, only steps from the water. The service staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and maintenance seemed...

If you want to go to a mega resort, this is it. Place has everything and it is done very well. One of the nicest pools I have ever seen. Nice bar area, swim up stools, shallow water tanning decks, lots of room for kids to play. Place has a beach the looks at the marina. The marina is not... More

The Placencia is by far the most luxurious place to stay at in Belize. The beaches are perfect and they work so hard to keep them as beautiful and clean as possible. The staff there is amazing. They are so helpful, so willing to make your stay the best it can be. By the end of our trip we knew... More

We booked this hotel based on the information given to us by the hotel that it was walking distance to the village area. It is actually a 25 min car ride to the town. They will take you there for USD $20 each way, and the latest you can get a shuttle is 10pm. It made it hard to stay... More

I came here under the impression that I would be staying in a nice resort. The grounds are beautiful, the food and service not so much. We stayed in a cabana with 3 people. When we asked for extra towels to shower we were told we could not get extra towels- when we had 2. When we pointed this out... More

The second you step onto the resort you know you've arrived somewhere special. Everything is top notch and the service is excellent. Especially enjoyed lounging poolside. Dinner in the tiki hut over the water with hilarious and fun karaoke was also especially memorable.

I spent one week recovering from a dislocated shoulder at this lovely hotel. The pool is exceptional with a shallow area with loungers in the water, a deeper area for swimming and a swim up bar. There is free wifi in the restaurant/bar area. I would appreciate it if they could expand it to include the pool area, but the... More
