    Fair 4.0
    way overpriced. Very sterile, all white floors and walls, with no atmosphere, austere, sparsely decorated. No Belizean character at all. More like South Beach, Miami Nice staff and location, but that's about it.

    The staff is what made this stay incredibly enjoyable! Friendly, personable, welcoming and helpful. Beautiful spot on the beach and will be back to check out the new restaurant once it’s complete. Hugs to Vanessa from the Canadian cousins.

    AMAZING Stay in Placencia - Will stay here again!!
    The Ellysian is truly remarkable - from their hospitality to the location to the hotel itself. We stayed in one of the 1-Bed Beach Suites (facing the main sidewalk) and our room was beautiful. The beds were one of the most comfortable we ever slept in and the A/C kept the room the perfect temperature. The pool area is also beautiful, only steps from the beach and a great temperature. The Ellysian is right in the center of the village so everything in the village is a max 10 minute walk, with some of our favorite places only two minutes away. We unfortunately visited when the sargassum issue was at its highest, but the staff consistently gave us recommendations on other activities to do to avoid it and excellent recommendations on restaurants. Speaking of the staff, they are some of the friendliest and most accommodating people we have ever met (including handwritten notes every evening). I may sound like I'm selling this place, but I'm not. This was our first visit to the village of Placencia and we really could not have chosen a better hotel - highly, highly recommend and will be back again!

    The Ellysian was absolutely wonderful. The staff couldn’t have been kinder. Rooms were so clean and comfortable. Best nights sleep yet. Conrad, the bartender, was the very best, abc became our good friend. We can’t wait to come back!!!!!

    Good 6.0
    Would have been nicer if there was a hanging rod in the closet to hang clothes, an in-room phone, and our toiletries were refilled (shampoo, conditioner, soap). Otherwise it's a new, modern, and clean hotel that fared better than the other older hotels. A bit on the pricey side compared to similar hotels in the surrounding area and those in nyc with stated conditions, but having an air-conditioned room is well worth the price if you're not used to extreme heat and humidity.

    Perfect in so many ways!
    The hotel and rooms are beautiful. The woodwork on the stairs, doors, and ascents is gorgeous. We found them to be very spacious, as well and we had a family of 4 staying there. The beds are seriously the most comfortable beds we've ever slept on, my wife didn't want to get out if bed! The location was great, close waking distance to the main part of the village, and close to many good restaurants as well as grocery store. Nice pool area and the bar is now open and very friendly. We really loved our stay.

    Exceeded Expectations!
    A beautiful upscale hotel - they even supply the good Charmin TP. Ocean view was possible while laying in bed. Paddle boards are free to use at hotel Beaches were clean and beautiful Lots of restaurants to choose from Walking distance to everything Wifi was excellent Staff and locals were very friendly. I found this village the most reasonable in price for souvenir shopping.

    Very good 8.0
    The Ellysian is a new hotel, so a few things were still getting worked out. Overall our stay was really good. The room was large and clean, the bed and pillows were really comfortable! The location is great, in short walking distance to food, bars, guided activities, gift shops, and of course it is right on the beach. The pool area was nice and clean, and there were stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and a few bikes guests could use. Our balcony did not face the ocean but you could still see it, and the view of the mountains was really pretty. They kept telling us the bar at the pool would be open but it never was. There is a market right next door so we just got drinks from there and brought them on the pool or beach so the pool bar was not a big deal for us. The time of house keeping service was totally random and we ran out of toilet paper once, and there was a mix up with the mini bar stock and we had to pay for a few things we didn't drink.
