Missing out at many opportunities

The location is great, direct at the beach, however the feel is: Its has been a round for quite some time and the better days are over, it is missing out at many fronts when one does compare the operation and the service and product delivery, just not there any longer.

The staff is truly trying the very best, but limited in terms of numbers and therefore service delivery falls short, combine this with the urgent need for a general renovation, maintenance is one of the biggest short falls.

During the week we have been in the area, we have seen a number of properties at the same price range that truly managed to be different and stand out.

Food was ok but truly nothing very special, service staff did try hard to manage, but a supervising helping hand was missing. Check out was lengthly and not as profesional as it could have been, for the same reason, front desk manager only gets to duty after 9am.

Long story shot, with a more detailed service focused approach the operation could do well better, pushing for a polishing up maintenance action plan one would be able to add lots of values that are presently missing.

Perfect resort!

We had an amazing time at The Placencia. The whole resort is stunning and run by amazingly friendly and welcoming staff. From the pool bar, to the private beach and piers to watch the sunset, we can only thank everyone for looking after us! We can’t wait to go back!
