“A Laid Back and Perfect Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

What a great place to stay in fun Placencia. It's laid back but yet Lisa and George give you all you need. Nice size rooms with refridgerator and coffee maker. Coffee also always available in the main living room. Great beach area with chairs and hammocks. Short walk to all types of fun food and drink places, great shops, grocery stores and massage spas. George knows the Placencia history and is from one of the first pirate families. Lisa knows the area and can direct you to the best places. Their home/main living room is always open during the day and they are always there with a welcoming hello. Fishing/snorkeling guide picked us up on the beach each day for our excursions. What a great place. You will love it. We've been comming for the last 14 years and will continue at the Westwind. The prices, cleaniness, and utilities are all exactly what you want.

Room Tip: Sll the rooms are great and have good ventilation. Clean and very comfortable. Best rooms are 2nd fl...

Lisa does everything to ensure that your needs are met to make this a great experience. Laid back atmosphere where doing what you want is the name of the game. Main living room is open for guests to drop in at any time and a pot of coffee is there for everyone first thing in the morning.

Came to Belize with hopes very high and I can only say that they were blown away. After flying into Placencia on a little plane I was met by a warm driver that the West Wind had arranged to meet us. Immediately, the hospitality was evident. Walking in the door of the West Wind was only a small glimmer of the hotel as our room was clean, nice, and very comfortable. The hosts were fantastic and were always willing to sit and have a chat. They also helped arrange trips and had plenty of insight into what would interest our family. Overall, 10 out of 10. Cant say enough good things, one very pleased customer.

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice but an A/C makes everything better

Great hosts, Great rooms, Great views and amazingly comfortable rooms.
Placencia Village is one of the great places in the world to stay and the Westwind makes it even better. Hanging out on the terrific beach with wonderful water and tremendous views and then having such a comfortable place to relax and sleep is one of life's great pleasures.
Their gardens between the the Hotel and the Sidewalk are the best on the entire Peninsula and that is saying something based on how cool this village is!!!!!
Go to Belize, Go to Placencia and stay with George and Lisa at Westwind and then tell all your friends about it. They will be justifiably jealous and you will be everyone's hero!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed "around the corner" for a little less money than the main rooms. They were the...

It was a nice stay in a great location. The rooms themselves were very basic and the hotel was rather a long distance ffrom the road. Lisa the manager, was a great asset and was very helpful. In fact she went to great trouble to make our stay more enjoyable. We were there in September and were surprised to find that most restaurants in Placencia were closed but it is a good place to rest and recuperate.

Room Tip: Try to get a beach view room - the others are very ordinary

We had an unforgetable stay at the Westwind in Placencia.
It is right on the beach w/ soft white sand. There are also canoes available if you so desire to paddle around.
Placencia is a quaint little town with lots of shops, and restaurants. It wasn't busy when we stayed in October but were told that would not be the case come high season. If you're planning a trip to that part of town, check them out you'll leave feeling like family rather than guests.
We were happy we found our little gem to stay on the beach, we were well provided for!!! Thank you Lisa & George.

Much love

This is a great spot for the budget traveller. The rooms are clean and adequate and all a person needs. The location can't be beat, particularly for the price. George and Lisa opening their home to their guests is the icing on the cake. They are warm and gracious hosts and they definitely made this a memorable stay. If you go, ask George to tell you the story of the evolution of the man/woman relationship...... :O). Thanks Lisa and George - see you again!
