If you are looking for a combination of luxury and service the Placencia Hotel & Residences has both! While the resort is beautifully designed and full of all the amenities a guest would ever want it is their staff that makes the resort work. That begins at the front desk led by Adrian and people like Basilio and Ellerry among... More

BEATIFUL hotel, wonderful rooms. The pool is great, the restaurant on the dock is great, and the food is great. Perfect location, perfect restaurant on the dock, perfect deck for breakfast or dinner. Everything was perfect, our room (Mahogany Retreat?) was beautiful, as was the shower and Jacuzzi. VERY Romantic. My only negative was the staff at the front desk.... More

Wow, Wow, Wow. This place is unbelievable! One of the finest resorts I have been to in a long time! The staff is so friendly and helpful. We had great couples message overlooking the ocean! The food was awesome and the chef comes out and talks with everyone in the dining room to check and make sure everything is delicious.... More

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
