We opted for a non air conditioned room which worked out fine until the town's power was cut in the middle of the night brought a rough hot patch in the middle of the night. There was a good pedestal fan as well as a roof fan however this rattled so much we opted to leave it off during the night. Air con was an about an additional US$15 a night. The room we had was a decent size however it had a double bed and not a queen which isn't the greatest! The room had a decent sized bathroom and a fridge which was nice. The resort has it's own nicely laid out restaurant which serves quite good food at reasonable prices given it is in the hotel. The hotel has nice beachfront with chairs and palapas which provide good shade.

When we first got in the water I felt a little afraid because I new I was in three thousand feet deep water and had no lifevest on me; but the women in front of me had one just in case.
We didn't see fish for a long time intil we saw a huge school of huge horse-eye jacks (about 200) ...
... of Placencia. This included some we really liked, like Omar's Restaurant that served up delicious meals at really reasonable prices, and some that, although not everyone's taste, were making the owners both popular and wealthy, especially the Barefoot Bar which was jam-packed with the expats who met there every day and night to drink together. Now, I am not generalising as there are so many doing anything from just chillin' to helping their communities, but I do find it quite ...
