We stayed 4 nights in one of the beachfront cabanas. There was a hammock on the porch and we were a leap from the beach. Unfortunately there was lots of seaweed at the beach which didn't make it great to swim at. The cabana was clean with a lovely en suite and kitchenette. Joy was absolutely lovely and had a... More

My husband and I traveled here on our honeymoon, however, I think this would be perfect for solo travelers as well. In fact, the two other front cabanas were occupied by solo travelers. Our room (Angelfish) was one of the beachfront cabanas. It is set back just a bit from the two cabanas in front of it but neither one... More

A nice collection of 5 small bungalows located right on the beach. Each with A/C and its own small veranda with hammock. Clean and safe. Good price. Great location! Placencia is a small fishing village turned tourist destination because of its wonderful beaches. Only downside for me was the sometimes loud music at the bar 2 lots down. Usually stop... More

We stayed 4 nights, and it was wonderful. Right on the beach, and the staff is super helpful and nice. Easy walking distance to just about everything in town. It was very easy to make reservations ahead of time, and communication with the lodge before we arrived was excellent

We stayed in three different locations in Belize and this hotel was our favorite. We were there December 11 to 15th. The cabin is on the beach, literally two steps of the front door and your feet are in the sand, it's fantastic. The beach is peaceful and beautiful, very easy to get to restaurants, banks, shops etc. In fact... More

I have stayed at ranguana lodge twice now and the cottages are very clean, comfortable, and close to the beach and other attractions of Placencia. The staff is extremely helpful- they went out of their way to help me book excursions while I was in town. The cottages are equipped with everything you could need to cook for yourself or... More

Less than $100/night for a cottage on the beach.....with a kitchen, bath, and covered porch with a hammock! This little five cottage complex was cute and in good condition. The lady running the place was nice and very helpful. The bathroom was a little outdated and small, but we found no problem with it. This is not luxury lodging, but... More

Ranguana Lodge is a great place to stay in Placencia. Within 5 min you can walk to most of the restaurants, bars and shops. It is located at the beachfront and from the veranda of our cabana we had a very pretty beach and sea view. The whole lodge is well-kept and tastful: you find a lot if pretty plants... More

Nice cabanas close to noisy bars but we were there Sunday and Monday night so ok the fan noise took care of it as well as the breeze. Staff was great and helpful. Fridge and hammocks were nice.. Did a snorkelling tour with night wind tours and just the two of us with the guide Bobo in the water with... More

We stayed at the Ranguana Lodge Jan 29, 30, and 31/14 and it was great! We were in the Triggerfish Cabana which is on the beach (as is the Parrot Fish Cabana). The room was clean and there is lots of hot water. There is a nice little porch with a table and chairs and, of course, a hammock! The... More
