“Beachfront Bargain”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

SeaSpray has some of the best prices you can find in Placencia. I was traveling with my sister and 2 friends and we stayed in their 2nd smallest rooms. Though the rooms were small by American standards, it really made absolutely NO difference. The room had 2 double beds and a hot/cold shower as well as a refrigerator that more than met our needs.

I also want to make a special mention of Hubert. He was the Sunday groundskeeper and he was incredibly friendly to us! We asked him to help us find some coconuts with coconut juice in them which he did with much effort and then he helped us cut them open to drink out of with his machete. He did all this with no expectation of a tip or other compensation - it really made my day.

I highly recommend this lodging for travelers looking to enjoy Placencia and who do not plan to just sit in their rooms and watch TV.

Room Tip: One warning: Somewhere just south of the hotel lives a person that owns an EXTREMELY annoying Dog...

SeaSpray Hotel is located on the northern end of Placencia, near where you enter the town. It is a nice hotel, though a bit rustic, as most hotels and rental cottages in Placencia are. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurants are nearby as is a Chinese-run supermarket only one block away. The restaurant on-site, De Thatch, has reasonably good, but not what I would call great, food. However, service is slow, so leave plenty of time to order and get your meals. The hotel keeps their part of the beach clean and there are nice Adirondack-type chairs to sun in. However, along the beach - and not just in front of the hotel - there is a strip of dead seaweed. This does not impede swimming in the warm water, though. I recommend the SeaStar room. It is second-story, but that just makes for a better view. It's ocean-front, the closest room they have to the ocean (it's an "end" room). I loved the nice porch with a hammock. Note that this room has no AC, but does have a ceiling fan (the room was pleasant in March as there is usually a breeze blowing through the room, due to it's end location). All and all, the SeaSpray Hotel is an enjoyable place to stay.

Caveat: the Tipsy Tuna Restaurant is about 150 yards away and they have LOUD live music on Friday and Saturday nights (until 2 in the morning). So if you are planning on staying at the SeaSpray Hotel on a weekend, bring along earplugs.

Room Tip: Make sure to get an oceanfront room. Reserve plenty of time ahead to get a decent room (I reserved...

Hotel was full, so needed up in the drivers room by the ice machine, with no air flowing into the room. They actually gave me ripped up towels, and a fan that hardly worked. Trust me when I say the hotel could have been a nice experience, but only if you had a decent room. Don't book without knowing what room you will get. People at desk are not friendly. There looks to be many options in Placencia that would offer a better experience. The front desk when I asked for a beach towel actually said since I was in room 2 I get an old towel, while the people in seafront rooms get a nice towel. I would not recommend hotel.

Room Tip: Only book hotel if you can get decent room.

This was our favorite place in Belize. We could walk everywhere, swim out our front door and relax on the sand beach. We had a room facing the water, Seaview 1, and it was perfect. A small kitchen (no stove) meant we could have breakfast in our room each morning and keep cold drinks and snacks in the fridge. The room was cleaned every day. Wonderful staff, good restaurant, and over all would stay here again. This was the only place we found where you could walk right into the ocean, no eel grass to contend with. Loved it.

This hotel is located in a great area in Placencia and is directly on the beach. Has some beach chairs on the beach in front of property available for use. Room was very clean and housekeeping was available daily. Felt very safe. Close to Tipsy Tuna and close walking distance to other restaraunts/bars. Reasonable prices too. Highly recommend. Will definately come back to this hotel when i return to Placencia. The room even had a mini fridge to keep bottled water, beers, etc cold.

It's a nice little hotel right on the beach, with an excellent restaurant ( try the rice and shrimp dish) There is a cute little coffee shop around the corner that has the best coffee I have ever tasted, and a little grocery store where you can get everything you possibly could need. The beach is beautiful, and there are not a lot of people around - I found it to be very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are tiny, but you are never in them anyways, and they have a little fridge where you can put your drinks, but you will need to go the restaurant for ice, since the freezer part of the fridge doesn't really work. Everything in Placencia is a short walk away - restaurants. dive shops etc.

The Seaspray is great value for money and is in a great location - right on the beach and close to all the bars and restauarnts. We stayed in the Seaview room which I would highly recommend as it is not much more expeisive and you get a small kitchenette and fidge as well as a private balcony overlooking the beach.
