We loved this place. The location was perfect... right on the beach, and close enough to the action to walk in just a couple of minutes, but still far enough away that it wasn't noisy. You can hear the waves crashing down from the balcony, and can even take a nap in the hammocks out there. It's perfectly relaxing.
The owners are extremely friendly, and go above and beyond in their attempts to be helpful, and to make your stay enjoyable. Any concerns or questions we had, Stefano was on top of it immediately. The resident neighbors were friendly, and always greet us warmly when we saw them. One was even nice enough to offer us a ride home one night as he drove past us on the street (though we were heading out for a drink, so we didn't accept).
This is more of a vacation rental than a hotel. That's exactly what we were after, because it really made our stay feel more authentic. It felt more like a home away from home than a sterile hotel room. If you are after a pristine place where someone makes your bed and empties the trash every day, this probably isn't for you. But if you're interested in feeling like you have a summer home in Placencia... this is your place.
