“well-priced and well-equipped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

I chose OneWorld based on reviews here and Lonely Planet. I stayed a total of 12 nights after extending a couple of days. The place is clean, well-located, and quiet with wellworking wifi throughout - the best wifi i have tried in Belize, probably due to the use of network extensions. It is wellpriced and well-equipped - I liked it that the two rooms i tried had functioning aircondition, personal hammock, a clean and working kitchen and small stuff that i needed but wouldnt bother to buy such as scissors and coffee filters. The laundry setup was also good and used by other tourists and backpackers from other hotels - again well-priced. Claudia, the owner and manager is helpful, reasonable and no-nonsense, which was not typical for my experience of Belize over a total of five weeks this year. I wouldnt think about staying elsewhere in Placencia, except for the major resorts such as Turtle Inn and Roberts Grove, where a good service experience would be ensured, but at a higher cost and with the constraints of a resort holiday. My biggest overall gripe with Placencia is the beach, which is not well-kept at all but that seems to be a general problem.

Stayed April 2014, traveled solo

My daughter and I have spent a week at One World and loved it. Claudia keeps the property spotless and goes out of her way to make sure you are very well taken care of. We rented a one bedroom and it was perfect. The location is outstanding, central to everything in the village and only a minute or two walk to the beach. We much preferred being on main street. I arranged everything with Claudia over email and she even offered to take care of purchasing our Maya Island air tickets from Belize City to Placencia. That was so helpful! For the practicals, kitchen is fully stocked, AC cools fast, water pressure is solid, screened porch with hammock is dreamy. Great find, this will alway be our choice to stay in Placencia.

Room Tip: We really liked the upstairs apartment, especially the second story porch.

We only stayed one night here, but I wish I would have stayed here the entire trip! The A/C actually WORKS. With a remote control - and is QUIET. The bed is comfy, lots of windows and natural light. Hot water, nice bathroom - you can't go wrong here.

My boyfriend and I stayed at One World Rentals in Placencia in May of this year and absolutely loved it. It's the perfect option for people who don't want middle of the road priced-accomodations, and is suitable for just a person or two, or families. The entire place is clean and well-maintained, the beds are comfortable, there is A/C as well as fans, hot and cold water, tv with surprisingly a lot of clear American channels, and our room had a kitchennette. It was great that we didn't have to eat out every night or morning. We just went to the grocery store down the street and got lots of our own food and drink to cook there. It is not beachfront, but still super close, and has a little courtyard with chairs and each room on the main levels has their own hammock.
I would HIGHLY recommend staying here! Do it!

We were in Placeencia right before Lobster Fest, no rooms!! We took an impromptu trip to Placencia, with no hotel reservation. Luckily we stumbled on to One World. Nothing fancy, but clean, cold AC, great location, and Cheap!!

We arrived in Placencia without booking ahead and after many hours in transit on bus from Belize Zoo (the James Bus Line and Hokey Pokey) in hot weather. Needless to say we were grouchy! After looking up and down the sidewalk street, we were about to make our final decision but I opted to wander inland for the ATM first and stumbled upon One World. What tremendous luck! The larger, separate house (purple) near the laundry was open for our three night stay and was ideal. Our family of four would have loved spending the entire vacation there, and we rarely all agree on ANYthing. Claudia and her staff (forgot her name!) were incredibly helpful, laundry machines were a blessing, and the actual room with full kitchen (oven even produced a wonderful birthday cake for us), two very comfortable beds, great shower, cable TV and AC were amazing.

I loved being in the center of town, near everything but still peaceful and mostly quiet. My husband loved access to the Pickled Parrot for cheap drinks, and our kids loved proximity to the Shak for the best smoothies ever and being right next door to the Tutti Frutti gelateria for incredible gelato.

Would consider another visit to Placencia again just to stay in these accommodations--the best of our entire trip!

My husband and I stayed at One World Rentals and rented a 1 bedroom studio for 2 weeks and it was so comfortable. Claudia is the nicest person you could meet and her staff was so friendly. If you needed anything, they would go out of their way to make you had what you needed. I would recommend this place over any other place in Placencia because it is conveniently located in the center of the village. We had our own kitchen so we cooked most of our meals in our little studio. It had air conditioning, cable TV, and free WiFi. If you are looking for an inexpensive, quiet, and friendly place, THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY.
