The garden and pool area is truly beautiful!

When swimming in the large salt water pool, gazing at the large palms and flowers surrounding it one feels as though they are truly in the Garden of Eden! There are several cushioned lounges and chairs in the pool area where you can choose to rest in either the sun or the shade. Near the pool area is also an outdoor kitchen complete with a new (2015) gas BBQ to prepare those more casual meals.

The palapa docks which go out several feet from the shore are perfect spots to enjoy the sea breezes and watch the sailboats in the harbour and the local boats, visiting yachts, and dolphins go by. There is also a rooftop deck area with its 360 degree views of the sea, the canal and the distant mountains and is the perfect spot to sip a drink and watch the most gorgeous sunsets the Caribbean has to offer!
All this comfort and luxury is an ideal place to spend a relaxing day or to come home to after a day in the pool or on Placencia's white sandy beaches, or on one of the many day trips, snorkeling, diving, hiking, or exploring nearby rain forests or Mayan ruins.
