“Good rooms but even better owners...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

I went to Placencia to relax for a couple of days before heading back to the UK. The choice was a good one. The best beds I slept in in Belize, hot water, large rooms and good location near beach bars and restaurants were all good. BUT the best thing about Serenade is the owners/staff - they have a 'family' meal which is cooked from the freshest ingredients and is as good a meal as you can get in a restaurant, you can sit and chat with them all day and I even went to the bar for a bit of Karaoke with them!!

All in all would definitely recommend staying here, worth it just for the friendly atmosphere and the rest is a bonus.

Basically the title says it all here. In Placencia I was looking for an economic hotel, that would still provide relative luxuries. I found that and more in Serenade. The rooms are spacious and well kept, equipped with private bathrooms and TV´s, double beds, the works. The price quality equation is definitely on par here. But thats not what i liked most about the Serenade; it was the staff: Such a nice family vibe that the three staffmembers carry out is indeed hard to find: you really feel like your being welcomed into their midst as a friend and an equal; not as a tenant; and that; quite frankly; feels nice for a change:

My firend and I stayed at Serenade Guest House for two nights. Nice clean rooms, AC, hot water...actually thought the beds here were better than any of the other places we ended up staying in throughout Belize and Guatemala! Had great rates and near one of the best restaurants in the area - De-Tatch. Can't go wrong!

My husband and I stayed at Serenade Guesthouse for 2 nights. We were comfortable. The location is central and great food at De-tatch and Cozy Corner Restaurants is a mere minute's walk.
While in Placencia, we snorkled at Laughing Bird Caye through Nite Wind Tours and loved it. We took the Monkey River tour through Caribbean Tours and thought it was average for the cost... We would have gone to Cockscomb with Nite Wind instead.

The Seranade Guest House is a very nice place to stay. Anita, the niece of the owner, is a very plesant lady that keeps the place very clean. The rooms have AC and cable TV. The guest house is located in the center of "town" just on the sidewalk. I think that Anita will cook you breakfast if wanted, but there are plenty little restaurants just a few steps away. I think we paid $60/night which was a good deal. You can pay more, but you'll be outside of Placencia and will need a car to get into town. You can pay less, but you won't have AC and we heard that some of the cheaper places lack proper door locks.

Serenade Guest house was a cozy White house right side of the Placencia sidewalk. It offered Hot and cold running water, Laundry service, Cable tv, Air Conditioning, and ceiling fan. The Rooms were very clean and the linen Smelled like it was fresh out of the wash, which it was. Next to The guesthouse is a restaurant named Serenade by de sea, and across from it is a Gift shop, so if you don't want to travel to far, everything surrounds, even the beach is only a fewyards away!
