Cabanas right on the ocean. Ours was cleaned daily and it is small and simple. The beach needs to be cleaned more as there was a lot of debris. We had no issues it was very quiet and serene. When we needed any maintenance, it was done quickly. Good security and felt very safe. Placencia has the friendliest people ever.... More

Nice location as it is near the end of the peninsula. You have several options. I would advise against the cheapest guest rooms as there is little room except for sleeping. The cabanas on the beach are the nicest. Since there is no AC these are also the coolest for sleeping. The place is in need of maintenance and I... More

The location, quiet and 20 feet from the water, is the best. But Janice, who has owned it for over 30 years, can't get around to check on things, and/or no longer cares. They have 4 kayaks but only 1 is sea worthy. There is garbage around the place. The maid just stopped by to say hi but never cleaned... More

I heard good things about this place from a friend who stayed there. I contacted Janice via email and gave her my card number to reserve a room. After 3 weeks with no word from her i emailed her back and cancelled. She then charged my card some $267 and will not refund it. I have sent several emails asking... More

Came down for Thanksgiving in Placencia. Loved our room, right on the beach. Can't go wrong here.. It isn't upscale, but it's clean, comfortable, and the sound of the ocean, guarantees a good night's sleep.

This place is fantastic! Private cabanas right on the water, very clean and excellent service. Nothing more really needed. Janice was very easy to book with and had everything ready for us when we arrived.

We were here just after Lobster Fest, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. There were 4 of us in 2 cabanas. The cabanas are literally right on the beach - a great place to watch the sun rise and to fall asleep to the waves at night. Remember that this is not a 5 star place and... More

Pros: owner let me leave our luggage in office after checkout time while we were doing activities before leaving the island. Hot shower. Cons: dirty room and towels; dogs from neighbors running around and were vicious; would not stay again

We love to head here at the end of winter for lots of SUN before the busy season of spring & all the yard-work that goes with it. The cabanas have the Best location and are Quiet, clean and relaxing!!!! Miss Janice and staff are pleasant, professional and speak English, as does most of Belize.

They are what you would expect. Super close to the beach, basic, but that's all you paid for right. Friendly staff straightens the room and changes sheets daily. When we were there the sea grass was really bad and stinks, you wouldn't swim through it to get to the nicer water! Totally not the fault of anyone. The great thing... More
