Overall Rating: ★★★★★ (5)

Energy Rating: ★★★ (3)
Staff Comment - Outdoor lighting is on timers, it is written in room info. Rooms have their own hot water systems so energy not used when no one is in room. Energy appliances and fridges are shut off if guests are to be small. Staff is continually reminded on energy savings. Ice machine is run only at night 2 times a week.

Water Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - Rain water is collected, used in showers, laundry,etc. only natural cleaning products used, sheets are cleaned every 3 days, information on linen change is on their room info. Grey water is recycled to the gardens. Piped in artesian water that is used primarily for drinking

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We compost, we buy next to none canned, bottles and plastic bottles recycled. We shope with recyclable bags. If we do buy to go it is the biodegradable ones and if they get returned, they are washed and reused. As we are pretty much a Mom and Pop operation, we dont have written constitution. We were the organizers of mile north and south of us beach cleanup, this is the trash we have to have dump truck pick up, our own garbage is next to nothing. We refuse to buy products, such as diet coke as those are not recycleable here. Our compost and wood burn piles and sea grass from the beach is added to the gardens.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We donate all sheets and towels to staff or non profit organizations. We are replacing all bulbs with energy efficient. We have the only nature trail in Placencia. As we built minimal natural vegetation was taken, no bull dozers, only machetes.

Protection Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - we have been supporters of Placencia Tourism Industry, Placencia Citizens for Sustainable development, Southern Environmental Ass. We are organizers of beach cleanup, and have got some support from neighbors. I think we are the only one fighting this jetty that a near resort that is causing beach erosion, we are continually taking photos sending them to the gov agencies. We have always bought 90% of our food from vegetable stands that bring fresh produce from the local farms, buy seafood from the fishermans co op. we buy only local meats that are delivered from meat market. We buy breads from local bakeries. Pretty much the only things bought at the store are cleaning products and dog food. As so many of the developments here cut everything down, plant coconut trees. All the birds are abundant here, as we kept the natural vegetation. As stated before our staff is small and seasonal so written constiution is not really done. We always speak to our guest on environmental issues. We use only guides for trips that leave footprint only
