LOS PORTICOS VILLAS (formerly Saks at Placencia Resort.
They advertise that they only needed to finish the restaurant. All other construction is done.
Upon arrival we saw and heard construction all around the property. Only two rooms were completed, and the owners occupied 1 of them.
Although our 2 BR was basically finished-- the bathroom in one bedroom had no water. The main a/c did not work. (Owner said it would be a week before their serviceman would be able to look at it.
The outside grounds were in complete disarray. No lighting outside at night.
The owners were the nastiest hotel proprietors I have ever come in contact with. We needed light bulbs for most of the fixtures in the villa. Needless to say we checked out the next day. We moved to a magnificent hotel for the rest of our stay.(The Bella Maya Resort at Maya Beach)
If you want to be treated like dirt than go to Los Porticos.
