Had an amazing stay here. It was clean and everything we needed. 15 sides to the dock and water. Peaceful, and relaxing. We wanted to fish off the dock, they brought down their personal fishing equipment for us to enjoy. I would go back tomorrow if I could. Best place I have ever stayed.

My wife and I like to "wing it". It is the off-season so we figured we may be able to find ample places to stay regardless of where we ended up. Well, we ended up at Captain Jak's in Placencia. The owners, Erin and Lucky, had a room for us and were super nice folks and have obviously made a... More

This was my second trip to Captain Jak's; five years ago my husband and I got married there and we returned for a anniversary trip. Everything was just as wonderful as the first time. The cabanas have all the basic you will need, are clean and well maintained. Erin and Lucky are so kind and welcoming they truly help to... More

We weren't exactly sure what to expect coming to Belize for the first time. Staying at Capt. Jak's was awesome! The cabanas were great, Lewis keeps the gardens immaculate and it's a short walk to the village. Of course, Oliver the parrot provides good entertainment with his whistles and talking. Lucky and Erin are great, honest and always ready to... More

Captain Jak's is a fantastic place to stay. We planned to stay for a week or two and ended up spending 2 months. Erin and Lucky are great people. We arrived with no reservations and Erin managed to accommodate us. Went on 2 very successful fishing trips with Lucky. There are complementary kayaks and horseshoes for you to use. They... More

The cabanas are a great value for the money. We found them to be clean and well equipped. They had everything we needed to prepare small meals and a nice sized fridge to keep our leftovers and drinks cold. We loved being on the lagoon where we could read and have some peace and quiet, but also close enough to... More

We just returned from a 10 day stay at Captian Jaks. The previous reviews are quite correct. Lucky and Erin are really nice folks and very helpful for learning the lay of the land. We stayed in the Shawnee cabana and it was very clean, beds were comfortable and everything worked. Our favorite thing about Jaks is the garden setting... More

Lucky and Erin have a wonderful place, Captain Jak's is a great place. They have Oliver the parrot in the yard who will talk to you. They are very helpful with information and assisting in what ever clients needs. The cabins are rustic but very clean and the view of the lagoon is great. Awesome place to stay

We spent 2 weeks at Capt. Jaks in Feb. 2015. We had a bungalow right next to the lagoon and it was great to sit on the porch and have coffee and a bagel each morning. The resort is supper clean and everyone is very friendly and helpful. If you do experience any problem they take care of it right... More

Our group of 9 people rented the private villa plus a two-bedroom cottage. The facilities were very nice, the location was great for walking to town. Oliver the parrot provided great entertainment! We would definitely return.
