Serenade Hotel
Ranked #18 of 27 Placencia B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My husband and I arrived unannounced in Placencia Jan 11th. With absolutely no pre-plans we explored and asked around for accomodations for the night at the end of the peninsula. After many inquiries with no luck we finally pulled our car into a seemingly central parking area with many guesthouses to explore. Joel (Joe - El) saw us and immediately offered to help us with whatever we were looking for. He kindly took us right over to an available room. We loved it at first sight!
TV, internet, air conditioning, right on the main strip plus set in the pathways to the beach. I explored the pathways all afternoon. Also to mention the very nice Victorian style porch setting overlook. Joel checked us in fast and friendly! We had a very nice room on the bottom floor but you may want to expect all night walking around noises from the second floor.

The owner of this clean two story hotel is the kind of guy you want to support in Placencia. Joel is a very professional owner with business experience from the US, his family is deep rooted in Placencia and the surrounding islands.

Joel has a keen attention to detail and is constantly keeping up the grounds of the hotel, his staff is friendly, cleanly and helpful. He also has a small classy barber shop on the grounds, he gave me a professional cut and shave - which was well needed! It was probably the best haircut I've had, and it was under $20 US.

I'm confident that as I write this Joel is updating things, and improving things; the hotel has been in his family for years, but he came a little while back and began renovating and restoring it. Definitely check out this hotel, it's about a 10 munite walk from the south tip of the peninsula, right down the walking path.

I loved staying there. The owner was constantly trying to please. I am from seattle and broke my leg. The owner took me to the clinic, which was closed. He used his ties and got the docter to come in after hours and had me taken care of. I had to leave early unfortunatly. Sitting under the huge tree in front looking out at the water with a breeze blowing all the time keeps you cool. All the employees were more like friends. Anything you need anytime they are there, I cannot wait to return. I am handicapted from a stroke and to find a place with people so friendly and careing was just a joy.The owner will arrange any excursions you may want to do, and his knowlege and people he knows personally, really help make it a wonderful vacation destination.

Clean affordable and good location. A safe place to leave your stuff and explore this wonderful area and get your laudry done. We stayed here last year after a Raggamuffin sailing trip and we came back. The restaurant is closed for now but there are lots of places to eat close by.

I will definitely stay here again and againa and agian. The best part of staying at the Serenaded is definitely the people that run the place. They are boisterously friendly and a lot of fun. At times It felt more like visiting with family (without the issues) than staying at a hotel.

Reasonable rates and great location. The rooms are basic but actually very charming with AC available in some rooms. You can hang out on the veranda any time - have a meal (breakfast was my favorite) or enjoy a cool drink while getting to know the staff and other guests. This was a great way for me to get information on things to do and where to go. I really enjoyed my stay here. Met lots of interesting locals and travelers; It is a real crossroads and yet relaxed and peaceful at the same time.

Nicole is always ready to help you with anything you may need. Rooms are very good for the price not luxury but a great place to sleep at night with A/C. Comfortable king bed and a nice bathroom. Decor is sparce and could use a little updating but for the price no complaints here.
