My wife and I just returned from Paradise Hotel in Placencia. We will certainly recommend it as a great value based on those we've seen in Placencia. I got there in time to see the rooms and they are as clean as any I've stayed in anywhere. Alan & Deloris took us on a brief tour of the small hotel (12 rooms if I remember correctly.) Two of the rooms were large and fully equiped (working cable, small refrigerator, microwave, A/C, ocean-front balcony.) The free wireless was working, but only in the restaurant when we were there. The rooms were very quiet, even when the restaurant was busy.
Personality Plus: Everyone from Tiphany, the manager, to the tour guides (we used 3 different ones - 2 snorkeling trips & one trip to the Rio Blanco Falls & Mayan ruins), to the waitstaff were very knowledgeable, very friendly, and attentive. The restaurant has a bar and the service was wonderful. Don't go expecting fast food delivery, expect a slight wait because other than daily specials everything seems to be prepared to order and often we noticed/tried things not on the menu. We tried their breakfast, lunch, and dinner and enjoyed all. The Fry Jacks at breakfast are wonderful and when they have them, you can get them plain, with powdered sugar, or stuffed with eggs, bacon, cheese, etc.
At night, an assortment of village locals (several colorful personalities here), transplanted US citizens, and visitors frequent the restaurant and bar. If you're not in a hurry, the laidback atmosphere and assortment of people is fun to partake. Actually, this may have been one of our favorite parts of staying at Paradise. I would encourage you to get into a few conversations while you're there.
Oh yes, they had an on-site spa for massages, a dive shop, boat dock, and a gift shop. Also a nice library of books and I think they had quite a few videos - we didn't watch much TV. A jacuzzi and sun deck on the roof. Golf cart rentals.
We highly recommend it!
