Just got back from a week of scuba diving and staying at the Sea View. Wonderful little motel, had more of a bed and breakfast feel, than a motel. Terrific bakery right next door with wonderful cinnamon rolls, smoothies and homemade pizza. The shower has amazing water pressure, loved that. Would absolutely stay here again, and urge anyone else planning to stay in Placencia to stay there, too.
Our dive shop, Splash Dive Center, set up a diving package for us and chose this hotel.
The hotel is within walking distance of anything in Placencia. Room had fridge, microwave and coffee pot, so we saved some money by making breakfast in our room a few days.

We didn’t plan as much time as we should have to really enjoy this little place. The hotel was beautiful, clean and well managed with someone almost always inside the office. Sara helped us arrange our monkey river tour. The room was large and even had a tub/shower. The rooftop was pretty windy when I was up there but I loved the view from the hammock. There is a wonderful Swiss bakery next door and the best gelato way too close by. Tutty Fruitty is not to be missed.

My husband and I spent several nights here and would highly recommend SVS.

We visited mid-October, so we were the only guests most nights. As others have said, the staff is terrific--very friendly and helpful, on call 24/7 to answer any questions, help with transportation, call local businesses for you, etc. The room was spacious and clean, the AC worked really well, the bathroom was great (terrific water pressure!). The water in the jacuzzi was not heated when we were there, so it was extremely pleasant to sit in there and cool off. The view from the rooftop deck is fantastic.

Location can't be beat, SVS is right in the heart of the village on the sidewalk. As others have mentioned, it's a short trek to the water.

We thought this place was great, and reasonably priced. Would definitely return!

This is a small (12 rooms) 'guest-house' hotel with most of the amenities needed. Immacuately clean, has a mini-kitchen area with refrig, micro wave and coffee maker -- but no coffee. Priced at $70 (including tax & fees) for three of us (two double beds), small bathroom, all the essentials - shampoo, conditioner, soap, nice towels. Within easy walking distance of town and/or beach. Attentive, helpful 24-hour staff. One evening my grandson cut his toe and the young man manning the office immediately provided an emergency first aid kit which had the essentials needed. Hotel is located right next door to a b'fast/bakery. Hot tub on roof. Since it was July, Palencia's low season, we were the only guests ini hotel. The beach leaves a lot to be desired, actually, almost all the beaches in Palencia leave a lot to be desired. Filled with seaweed and driftwood. We were there for a week and only went onto the beach once or twice. Unfortunately - no swimming pool; practically none to be found except far, far away from town.

We traveled through Belize for 13 days and stayed at 5 different places, and this hotel was by far the most comfortable that we stayed at. It had the best beds, the best showers, the best air conditioning, the best tv, and the best wifi! It doesn't have a lot of character and it is not right on the beach... but it is very close to the beach and it does have a hot tub on the roof which we enjoyed every evening! It is also close to the docks and all the tour operators, lots of restaurants and bars. I would happily recommend this hotel!

We took took the Monkey River tour, across the water, up the river and into the jungle... lots of bugs, dress appropriately, and quite an experience hearing the howler monkees! The meal provided at Alice's Restaurant in Monkey River Village was a little lacking, but we had a good time.

We also took a snorkling tour to Silk Caye, a tiny island that is a long ways out, and is surrounded by reef! It was beautiful and fun..had a lunch with fresh grilled fish and chicken prepared on the island, delicious! And on the way back swam with huge turtles, nurse sharks, and sting rays....
