We stayed for eight nights and loved every minute of it! The cabin was spotless and the ocean is just steps away. The full kitchen came in handy too. The staff was always helpful and friendly. We were right next door to the Barefoot Bar and Tipsy Tuna which are the two main spots for nightlife in Placencia. The music... More

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in a beach front cabin at Ranguana and it was amazing. The Caribbean Sea was no more than 30 feet from our front steps that led out onto the sand. The accommodations inside the bungalow were excellent. There was a gas stove, fridge with a freezer, microwave, coffee maker, air conditioning and a... More

I wish i could do this place justice in a simple review. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice place for such an affordable price. Beachfront steps away from my front step, amazing view, accesible to local restaurants and stores, well equipped, clean, comfortable, a/c or fan to your taste. Mind you it was a family reunion, so...

I have been staying in these cabins on the beach for years. The staff are friendly, comfy beds, air conditioning if you need it and very clean. Just string up your hammock on the porch and relax or a few steps and relax on the beach. Also close to restaurants, bars and other amenities. Highly recommend.

Located right on the beach these private cabanas were close to town, comfortable and well-maintained. I particularly liked the strong shower. We used the ac at night but the sea breezes during the day were great.

I can't say enough good things about Ranguana. The beach cabins are simple, but very well kept and adorable inside. Each room has a deck with chairs and hammocks and the landscaping throughout the property is gorgeous. My boyfriend and I stayed in a cabin a few back from the beach and our room did not have AC, but it... More

After a sailing trip through Belize, Ranguana Lodge was exactly what we needed for 2 nights. Air conditioning, huge comfy beds, hot showers, fridge, laundry services, amazing location & views! Loved our stay here and would highly recommend to anyone in Placencia!

The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us get a couple of different tours set up while we were staying there. The cabana was very cozy and comfortable - lots of windows for breeze and light. The kitchenette aspect was very convenient - microwave, fridge/freezer, dishes, etc. There was a supermarket very close by, as well... More

We stayed at ranguana lodge for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. We had a garden cabin, without ac, but were perfectly fine with the fans running. It was great to have a little kitchenette, especially to have breakfast at home for early mornings. The location was perfect since we were able to walk around Placencia whenever we wanted. We...

The good stuff: Front desk staff were super nice and accommodating. Town is small and east to walk around from the cabanas. Cabanas have everything you need. Beach side cabanas are so close you can hear the waves. Felt safe and calm. Clean!!! The negatives: You can hear the bar music really clearly for most of the night, it is... More
