Still my favorite place to stay in Belize

This is a beautiful hotel that will keep you coming back time and time again. The service is always good and the food delecious. The staff bend over backwards to make sure that you have a pleasant stay. Laurent is the best chef around. He always makes the tastiest meals. The pool is amazing! It's a short ride from the airport but you will be glad you made the trip.

Nice property bad business

Overall my stay here was ok but since I've been home I'm not happy with how they conduct business. The property is aesthetically pleasing. Footsteps away from the beach. I stayed in a master suite which faced the ocean. The master suite was a nice size. There's a queen bed with separate living room area, 1 bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and a full kitchen. (You are not allowed to cook in the kitchen) and upon check in I found a pair of men's boxers behind my bathroom door.(gross) This hotel only has 1 restaurant that closes at 10 so don't get hungry after 10 because there's nothing to eat. The closet place to go is about 20 mins away from the property in the village. The staff are very friendly and helpful especially the pool bar staff. They would stay open a little later to accommodate us. There is only WiFi in the restaurant. You can buy WiFi for the room but it doesn't work that great. When you check out they inform you that if you used a shuttle for a ride that's an additional charge. I gave my debit card to pay for my shuttle which was $20 USD . They manually wrote down all cards which I didn't like at all. I come home and check my account to find out they charged my card an additional $118 USD and I have no idea why. I call the hotel to find out why they charged my debit card without my permission. They tell me that I didn't pay taxes on my room. My room was paid in full including taxes 3 months before I arrived with my travel credit card. I have emails stating that. This hotel, without any authorization, used my debit card that was meant to pay for my shuttle ride, to incorrectly charge me additional taxes. After going back and forth with this hotel they finally agreed that I did pay in full and it was their mistake and I would receive a refund. It has now been 30 days and they still have not refunded me the money they should have never took. The way they do business is not ok. If you stay here check all you accounts after you leave. You never know what they may charge on your card without authorization.

Fabulous family vacation destination

We spent 4 days and nights at the Placencia in early June - what a fabulous place! Great rooms with comfy beds, balconies, and lux bathrooms, and a fabulous location right on the Caribbean at the top of the Placencia peninsula and a short drive to Placencia Village. The huge pool with swim-up bar was fantastic, and the in-hotel restaurant had top-notch food and service. The entire staff was friendly and helpful - highly recommended!

Lovely, relaxing time

I had a solo trip for two days on the peninsula and stayed at The Placencia Hotel two nights. I had a lovely, and relaxing time. It is a very beautiful location. Shuttles from airport, and to and from Placencia village were efficient. The food was good, but the staff was excellent! They were by far the best thing about this resort. The snorkeling tour I did was fun and the tour guides on staff were great! The fresh, on-the-spot conch ceviche made by the boat driver during the snorkeling tour was delicious and made it such a unique experience! I would recommend anyone to stay here that is looking for a 4 star experience, that is planning on partying at night in town (as the bar and pool close early at the hotel), and that does not need to stay put in their room or by the pool to get work done requiring internet connection. I also found it pretty cool that there are many large iguanas hanging around the premises, and that there is a decent gym for the fitness-conscious guest. Again, This is truly a decent spot more for the party crowd that plans on heading into town rather than spending much time at the resort, and not the business person working on a deadline or that is expecting 5-star amenities. It's also great for those that want to have a blast parting at the casino next door! During the days I was there, at the end of May, there is no actual clean swimming areas inside the water by the beach, but the pool and swim-up bar is fantastic, as well as the dining and bar experience on the pier! The beach itself, however is groomed daily and pristine clean. You'll find gorgeous lighting and comfy seating on the pier, and a cool step to sit on that allows you to soak your feet in the water at night while sipping on an exquisitely prepared margarita! If you're a coffee lover, the main dining room and bar has an impressive Italian cappuccino (and beyond) maker. The bartender served up a delicious cappuccino and even recommended adding a dash of cinnamon which just made it so much better! Once you've pin-pointed what the nature of your trip is, and fit the requisites of guest-type I listed above, then the beautiful and friendly "The Placencia Hotel" is the right place for you.

WHY NOT LIVE WHERE PEOPLE VACATION

I just returned from Placencia again and stayed at the beautiful "The Placencia Hotel & Residences". I have reviewed this breathtaking hotel a number of times, and this time after staying their for a couple of weeks, I am convinced to build a home in The Placencia Residences. The hotel is great, the staff is great the location is breathtaking the service is outstanding. The chef at the hotel Mr Laurent Girard is not only the best chef in Placencia but he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet in the world. He and his wife make you feel like you have known them for years. If its not on the menu, he will make it for you and it is delicious. His wife baking skills are masterful. I am recommending this hotel to everyone who wants to experience true paradise and who wants to see The Beauty of Belize! I am going back again next week and will be staying at The Placencia Hotel & Resideces. Belize is calling me, and I am answering the call.
