I first stayed at the Manatee Inn in 2014. Since then I have been down 4 times for the End of the Year Marathon. I will never stay anywhere else but the Manatee. I continue to be impressed. Even though the rooms are simple, they have a clean, tropical feel. Love the wooden plantation shutters and the fridge was an unexpected bonus! Jarka and her husband are the perfect hosts! They made tour reservations, called cabs for me, and even apologized to me for the noise made by other guests! The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach and the main thoroughfare (small sidewalk that runs through Placencia). Everything is close. There's no TV and no air-conditioning, but you really don't need it. $40/per night again gave me a piece of paradise and when December 2019 comes I know I will be booking the Manatee again.

If you are looking for a clean, quiet place to stay for a great price, then this is it! The owners were friendly and were able to point us in the right direction for activities and food! Bare bones, great price!

We found the inn very easily with signage on the main road when entering Placencia. We had car troubles and would've definitely disturbed other guests when we pulled in, but Slavek came out and saved the day. It was late, but Slavek pointed us to a top restaurant and surely one of the very few open that late for dinner. From then the experience was absolutely perfect, we came at the start of the wet season and were the only guests. Rooms were simple but meticulously designed and built for the tropics -- mosquito nets were flawless, fan was relatively quiet and water pressure was excellent. If you're not comfortable in this accommodation, you don't belong in the tropics ;) Spent lots of time on our balcony which wraps around both floors. Also 3 minute walk to the beach! He provided us with fresh mangoes from his tree, which were exquisite and was very discrete otherwise. Would absolutely stay again!!

My trusty guide book recommended this place, and I took their advice and stayed five nights. Great location ...not exactly beach-front, but close enough to hear the waves. A very pleasant 15 minutes walk along the boardwalk to the village centre. Wonderful and helpful owners and clean, cool and comfortable rooms. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Manatee Inn and we couldn't have been happier. The rates are extremely inexpensive for Placencia and the rooms are perfect for an unpretentious but comfortable place to stay. The rooms are simple, but exactly as expected, very clean and spacious, with all the basic comforts (hot/cold shower, small fridge and a coffee maker). The location is also ideal, right at the edge of Placencia in a quieter area but only a few minutes away from the beach and all the restaurants. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, we will surely stay here again next time we visit Placencia, highly recommended.
