We stayed here for an entire month. The cabanas were cute and cozy. They are very convieniently located. The staff was polite and attentive. The only drawback was when we checked in the place was a little dirty (dusty). Not a big problem-it only took minutes to wipe it down. A tip-ask for directions to John the Bakerman. He has... More

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Garden Cabanas. We appreciate your candid comment that the cabana was a 'little dusty'. We apologize and want you to know that we were in the process of changing management in March. Our new manager comes with a great attention to detail and strong customer service. We are working...

This place is very nice and quaint. It is located centrally; short walk to the water, beautiful grounds. The place was really clean and was laid out well. It was open air with no A/C but it was not a problem. The reason I rated service so low is because basically after you check in there is no service. No... More

My wife and I (late 50's but adventerous) traveled to Placencia March 27 to April 4 and stayed at Garden Cabanas. Nice clean little cabins with kitchens and bath set amongst tropical plants a few blocks from the water. Fans but no air conditioning, which might be a problem in the summer when the humidity sets in, but we slept... More

My husband and I spent the month of February in Placencia, Belize. We stayed at the Garden Cabanas and I highly recommend the accommodation. Our cabana was clean, cozy, attractive, convenient to town (easy walk), roomy, nice kitchen, surrounded by grass and beautiful plantings, and comfortable. The owners are great people. We had a fantastic time!!!

We arrived in Placencia after driving down from Chetumal, Mexico. We had checked out a few places online previously and thought the Garden Cabanas looked pretty good. We stopped by the office and were greeted by Veronique and Ana. Veronique was rather abrupt and none too friendly but we booked a cabana anyway. We moved our stuff in and were... More

We stayed at the Garden Cabanas and they were very clean and "cute". We never stayed too long in our cabana as we were out adventuring during the day and up around "town" in the evening. Veronique and her assistant Anna were very pleasant and were very accomodating. It is a village that will probably explode within the next 5-10... More

Garden Cabanas is a cute, funky, casual place which perfectly matches the laid back attitude of Placencia. You get your own cabana with two beds, a dining table and chairs, a kitchenette and a small bathroom. Each cabana has a small porch--great for having a cup of coffee in the morning or hanging your swimsuits to dry in the afternoon.... More

We stayed at the Garden Cabanas in Feb, 2008 for a week before moving on to San Ignacio. The Cabana was perfect for the budget traveller. It was clean and comfortable with a small kitchen if you wanted to prepare your own meals. Although not on the beach, it was located in a quiet area in a beautiful garden setting... More
