Our own little cabana with bathroom, microwave and mini fridge. No A/C, just a fan to cool us down but open the door and your right on the water so that makes up for it. Close to the centre of town but far enough away that you have quiet in the night. The room is dated with basic amenities, but... More

I stayed a month here this year and booked for 2 months next year. Stayed in one of the condo units: spacious, balcony, WiFi, cable and central air. It's quiet in this part of the village and walking distance to everything. The proprietor, Maria, is very nice and accommodating. The Crows Nest (restaurant/bar) next door is part of the resort...

The South waters Resort is perfect in every way! The cottages are right on the beach in a quieter spot, but just minutes walk away from the bigger beach, restaurants and bars, making it great value stay. The owners and staff are absolutely awesome, going way beyond the normal "call of duty" to ensure your stay is enjoyable and stress... More

I stayed in the Cabana's and they were very spacious, with a fridge, microwave. The rooms were cleaned every day and were spotless. You have your own sitting portch with flowers growing from the pillars and you can watch humingbirds that are constantly flying around these flowers. The staff, Erica and Carmelita go out of their way to make your... More

Booked a stay at a South Waters cabana thru a travel agent and moved out after 1 night. I was warned of no air conditioning but not the rest. A chattering ceiling fan, towels better for exfoliating than drying, a trickle for a shower, threadbare linen, barking dogs and lost partyers. Hotel personnel could not be found past 6 pm.... More

We have been hounding South Waters since early March 2014 for an unauthorized double charge and the response from the resort has been disappointing/deceitful. We had to contact our credit card to resolve the dispute. It's a shame their sketchy business practices have ruined our experience because the location and cabana are magical...

I stayed here in March 2014 in a private beach cabana and it was a decent place to stay. Everyone was friendly and helpful while i was there and the price was OK too. However they double charged me (1 month apart for each charge, and before i even arrive). While i was staying at the property i spoke with... More

The location is right on the water and an easy walk from the town dock but is not in the are where the beaches are. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice restaurant on site but nobody eating there the day we were there. Lots mor activith and less expensive places to stay further up the beach.

WE came to Placencia in November ans stayed in one of the condo's. The room was very nice with a sofa bed, bath tub (rarity in Central America) and a very comfortable bed. There is a restaurant onsite. The food and service are excellent. You can walk right out of your room and go for a swim. The sea life... More

This establishment is situated at the very tip of the Placencia Peninsula, in Belize, C.A. far enough away from the main drag but close enough to walk to night time entertainment. We stayed in the 1 bedroom condo which was spacious and clean with a/c. Steps away from the calmest water I have ever experienced. A few minutes spent gazing... More
