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...

We have stayed at Captain Jaks a couple of times, even though we live here in the village. Whenever we have family in town or want a getaway, this place delivers a magical getaway on the lagoon. The cabins are just like ''going up north" when I was a kid, and supplied with everything you need in the small kitchens... More

It is important to understand what Captain Jak´s are offering if you are to enjoy staying here. - The place is kind of small with 5 Cabanas and 1 Villa. 3 of the Cabanas are with one room 2 are 3-room cabanas. They are situated in a park like Garden giving a really nice ambiance, a feeling of being part... More

The cottages and grounds are beautifully kept, try to get one right on the dock for some amazing porch side sunsets. Extremely convenient location, market located directly across the street. Recommend the Monkey River tour which you can pick up right at the dock. Luck and Erin are terrific human beings - very friendly, kind and knowledgable. Not the kind... More

As divers, nature lovers, and historical tourists, Placencia seemed a great base to cover all 3 generations of interests in our group. We were not disappointed. We stayed for 10 days over Easter at Captain Jaks, in the Villa. We chose the Villa to provide >multiple bedrooms for the 5 of us to relax, and a full kitchen for additional... More

This is our second time making our way back to Placencia, and we absolutely loved Captain Jak's! Lucky and Erin are the two most amazing people and their property is ridiculously beautiful. There are 1 room cabins and 2 story cottages. We stayed in the 2 story cottage right on the dock. We loved the view, greenery and the cottage... More
