This post is going to be a short work in progress as I am still editing my pictures of Placencia and I decided not to keep you in suspense any longer about where I stayed and who I caught up with while there.
First off, my home base was Roberts Grove, which is a lush tropical Hacienda-style beach resort on the water. With span of 22 acres, 3 restaurants, 3 pools, onsite dive shop and lagoon marina, the beach resort definitely qualifies as one stop shopping. You definitely would not have to leave the resort if you really wanted to kick back and relax.
While there I enjoyed a mix of much needed down time and exploring. I also got to visit with Anna and Gunter who were living in San Pedro and relocated their business Mathieu’s Deli to Roberts Grove Resort. For those of you who are fans of Gunters cooking, it is worth a trip to go see him. The deli has its of his yummy treats both savory and sweet options. They also have a nice selection of breads, deli meats and delicious Belize Cheese from Ian Anderson’s. While catching up with Anna and Gunter the two days I was there, I enjoyed the cookie and iced coffee options.
If you are planning a stay at Robert’s Grove Beach Resort be sure and check out their community service page to find out how you can help them with worthy causes such as Seine Bight Elementary School and the Placencia Humane Society.
I am missing the cozy bed at Robert’s Grove right now. I loved their taste in decorating,the furniture was chocolate brown leather and very comfortable. I also like that there was lots of interesting art and pretty finishes such as the double Mexican tile sinks in the bathroom.
