Amazing service; a little nickled and dimed

This place is incredibly beautiful, but just a bit over-manicured perhaps. Felt like were were in South Florida, not Central America. The staff were SO service-oriented (especially Michael at the front desk), but having paid $400+ / night for our room, the $5 Paddle Boarding and Kayaking, the $20 shuttle ride into Placencia Village, the $15 deposit for pool towels, etc. kind of cheapened the magic. Other than that, the property is incredibly well-maintained (really uncomfortable bed, though) and the food in the restaurants was top shelf. Peddle bikes were free, so we peddled to the Maya Beach Bistro everyday for Happy Hour on the beach -- super fun!
