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

The cabanas are situated at the end of the peninsula, so it's an extremely quiet place in respect to human crowds. It's not quiet at all because of the ocean waves that lull you to sleep. The cabanas are very simple but they have everything you need at the beach - running water, working toilet, refrigerator, hamac, huge veranda, table,... More

Placencia is a pretty typical touristy beach town, but Tradewinds is a good spot within it. Can't beat staying literally on the sandy beach and listening to the waves crash around you all night. Excellent price for the location, and the room was clean and well maintained. Loved the hammock and meeting the neighbour cabana stayers. Janice, the owner, is... More

It's a small little box on the beach. ON the beach. If you've read the other reviews then you get that by now. There's coconut trees everywhere. Step one: go to the store and get a machete Step two: get a bottle of rum (Get the traveller's 5 Barrel, the 3 Barrel will also suffice) Step three: make some friends,... More

The price was reasonable and it was nice to have a cabin directly on the beach. Like others have said, If you want to be on the beach without other cabins blocking your view ask for a ‘standard’ cabins. They are about 30 steps from the water. The beach out front was littered with disgusting trash & seaweed and never... More

We stayed in the Tradewinds cabanas for 2 nights and enjoyed it so much. It is basic but clean and had everything we needed for our outing. Stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave, plus the basic pots, pans, dishes and utensils. It is easily walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was a girls outing and we had a great...
