We enjoyed our stay at The Ellysian very much, the property is immaculate and I believe is the most modern, updated hotel in Placencia. I do wish there was a restaurant on the property, however the restaurant next door has very good food and the hotel has a bar at the pool. The hotel had pre-arranged transportation to and from Placencia airport that we appreciated very much. The only other amenity that would have been nice to have would be onsite laundry machines. However, in coming back to Placencia, my first choice will be The Ellysian.

Property was new and fresh, pool and rooms were great. the hotel does not have its own restaurant, been told it will have in the next few months

The hotel had very nice accommodations. Our room was very clean and modern. The staff went out of their way to be helpful for any needs. Pool was small but clean. Location was very convenient in the village. A short walk to restaurants and shops.... The only real negative was a big one though. My husband and I vacationed in mid march and the Beach was unusable. Thick seagrass lined the shore with plastic bottles and other garbage mixed in. A strong odor of stench permeated throughout the area.

Hi, Thank you for the wonderful review. It is greatly appreciated! We are a newly built Boutique Hotel, therefore, I am glad that you can feel the exhilarating difference. You'll be happy to know that we now have an amazing Restaurant & Bar on our 4th floor. Muna Restaurant & Bar offers an amazing view of the Maya Mountains and sunset facing the village, and a picturesque view of the Caribbean Sea in the front. The most intriguing of all is the delicious and bold flavors that Muna Restaurant has to offer. You can now have lunch on the beach along with a refreshing tropical rum punch from the pool bar. While we do not have a self-service laundry facility, our housekeepers are always willing to prepare your laundry and deliver to your room if need be. It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to seeing you again at The Ellysian. All the best,

Hi There, Thank you for staying at The Ellysian Boutique Hotel! We trust you had a remarkable experience. The Ellysian is Placencia’s newest beachfront hotel with only 2 years of operation. And yes, we are excited to launch our onsite restaurant in mid-November of this year! Spoiler: It will be located on the fourth floor of the hotel and boast panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains! It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to seeing you again! Regards,

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the unsightly saragasum that was upon our shores during your visit. As evident, we try our best to remove the trash on a daily basis. (Whenever the sargassum comes around) Additionally, Placencia does provide some of the most beautiful beaches in the country and we are sorry that while many visitors have experienced this, you did not get the chance to due to this natural phenomena that is present all over the Caribbean at the moment.
