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.

Captain Jak's is an amazing place to stay! It's located just out of town, but within easy walking distance to everything. The cabins are clean, comfortable and cozy, the grounds are immaculate and the setting is peaceful. We loved their little parrot birds and waking up to their songs and antics! Erin and Lucky are incredibly accommodating and made our... More

Captain Jak's totally exceeded my expectations. The cabanas are quaint, yet have everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Kitchen was fully stocked and had everything you need to cook meals if you want, although with all of the delicious local food, I didn't end up using it :) The cabanas were super clean, linens and towels were...
