The facility as extremely clean The staff very helpful and accommodating The views were very tranquil and zen Liquor prices were a bit high but it is what it is. Lots of activities close by the property. The ruins are about a 20 minute commute.

Disappointing stay! We stayed for 5 nights and wished we had a refundable booking to go elsewhere. When we arrived, it was clear the room was turned over quickly and just the linens changed despite them needing an extra hour after their 3pm check-in. We found dirt and grim everywhere including old blood on the bathroom floor and black mold in the shower. Thankfully we brought disinfectant wipes. We let front desk know but it took two full days to hear back from management who provided a fruit plate as a resolution rather than a cleaning. We had to follow up several times and negotiate to get a real cleaning (3 days into our 5 day stay). The regular housekeeping service just made the bed and rehung up the dirty towels we used to clean. The fridge didnt work our entire stay and my partner cut his hand on broken glass shards left on the restaurant table. Pretty awful experience. Going back and forth with management for basics was not how we wanted to spend our vacation. We ended up getting a $150 credit and some breakfasts compensated but that was hard battle and management was awful to deal with - certainly did not make up for the experience and hassle. We understand things happen and sometimes fall through the cracks but it should not have taken 3 days and much follow up to get a cleaning. At the pool we overheard other guests with similar experiences. Placencia is lovely but I would not stay here and recommend you look elsewhere - it is just not worth the trouble.
