The stay was amazing. The rooms including the common areas of suites are air conditioned so you can be comfortable no matter where you are in your rooms. The pool is HUGE with a large area that children can use, and a large area for adults, including a pool-side bar where the drinks got very good reviews from our party. Probably the most amazing thing about the Placencia was the staff. From the time you park your car, the staff is right there to unload your bags, check you in, tour the facility, show you your room and its amenities, and arrange tours for SCUBA and snorkeling, zip-lining, etc. Two people from our party got a massage and proclaimed it to be fantastic. I don’t believe I have ever stayed at a place where the staff was so committed to making sure that you enjoyed your stay.For a beautiful or romantic dinner, I would highly recommend that you visit the restaurant at the end of their dock. The music was pleasant and not so loud that you couldn’t enjoy conversation. The food was great, and again the waiters were very attentive to our needs.As a caution, all the prices at the resort are in US dollars, which can surprise you if you have visited other resorts in Belize who use the local currency. That being said, this was a very pleasant stay for us, and I would recommend it to anyone.

The Placencia was a perfect spot for our family. Theyve got a great big pool with a swim up bar, where i spent most of my time;) The beach is one of the nicest and cleanest Ive seen in Belize (and Ive traveled all throughout the country). The food was so good. Chef Trinell is a queen, not only can she cook, but she can dance. After dinner when the live Garifuna drummers came out, she came out of the kitchen and taught us all how to dance just like the locals. I have never been to a resort that incorporated so much of the authentic culture into everything they do. Very cool experience. Every single staff member from the groundskeepers, housekeepers and Front desk had a huge smile on their face and cheerfully greeted us every time we walked by. You can really tell they love what they do. We just wish wed have stayed a little longer. We would have done so many more activities. Their in house Adventure team was super organized and helpful. They do all of their own tours in house and booking was super simple. They took care of everything. We were able to go on the Ranguana Tropical Island Tour and it was unforgettable. Super remote private island with beach games, snorkeling, best BBQ and wow the Lime Daiquiris were bomb. Very special place. I could go on forever, but it was a wonderful trip and we will be back again.

All I can say is wow! My husband and I only stayed here for one night on our tour of Belize, but if we’d known what a delight it was, we would definitely have stayed longer! From the very beginning, it felt like the staff treated us like we were part of this family. Like they were genuinely so excited we were there! Everyone is always smiling and saying hello. The property is stunning. The beaches are straight out of a magazine. I mean unreal. And they’ve got tons of fun stuff to do. I wish we had stayed longer and gotten to take advantage of all of the fun tours they offer. But we had a great time with all the stuff they had at the resort too! We took the paddle boards out for a spin where my husband quickly showed me up (I cannot balance to save my life!). He loved the water and could have stayed out there for ages. The pool was definitely more my speed and with the bar right in the pool I thought I would never leave! So many unique things to try I could hardly decide. And dinner on the pier at sunset? Not kidding when I say this was unforgettable. Thank you Placencia!

The hotel is beautiful from the road and walking up to check in. The staff was friendly upon check in and taking us to our room. We researched hotels & locations a bunch prior to booking - and since I recently stayed at another MuyOno Resort recently - which was AMAZING - I thought this would be a good choice. nce we got to our room, a 2 bedroom suite, which looked beautiful in the pictures - it all started. The room was filthy. NOTHING like the photos. Floors and bathrooms were disgusting and dirty. My feet were black from the filthy floor. The suite was really just two weirdly adjoining rooms with an awkward hallway that also led to another room door which could be rented out and WAS rented out - you could hear that person as if they were in the same room as you. Once we asked to be moved and that the room was dirty - the housekeeping came - clearly very frustrated, to show us another room that was the exact same condition. The front desk was NOT helpful. We asked if we could even switch to a King room - even thought we PAID to have a kitchen and two rooms - but she said none were available - even though the resort was basically empty. This was my 10th trip to Belize and even having family that lives in the country - ive never been bit by so many bugs. There was cockroaches on the dock where we had dinner and wild raccoons on the beach at night. They said this was normal - but I know for a fact you can spray for bugs which would help significantly.

Wow! I stayed at The Placencia Resort with my fiancé during a vacation to Belize. We traveled to a few parts on North Belize and found Placencia our favorite location. The Placencia Resort had it all! We had the best dinner at the resort the first night at the restaurant on the pier. I had the fresh caught fish. The next day we decided to soak up some rays at the resort pool. Did you know it is one of the largest pools in Belize?! After a few cocktails and talking to some of the very knowledgable adventure staff, we decided to take a day trip to an island called Ranguana Caye. They launch the tour by boat from the marina on property. We had a few too many cocktails after snorkeling on the Belize Barrier Reef. Its an island crawl and snorkeling trip all in one and it includes a Belize BBQ lunch! The room we had was comfortable, quiet, and perfectly cold. We didnt have any issue with the beach having sargassm like the rest of Belize does. That may be because it is protected by a marina. Thank you to the team at The Placencia! You made our trip unforgettable. See you again VERY soon.
