My stay at Ranguana Lodge was a comfortable and pleasant stay. The cottage was exceptionally clean with daily service and had everything I needed. I loved the porch with the bougainvillea and palms surrounding my cottage and the hammock! Joy was an exceptional host and always inquired if I needed anything. The grounds were beautiful and nicely kept. Covid restrictions were followed and handing washing stations were prevalent. The location is perfect. It was quiet due to Covid, but enough restaurants are open...you just have to plan, since last call is 6pm and grocery stores close early as well.

After 4 years of 2 month stays this is hands down our favourite. Right in the middle of the village, 50 ft from the Caribbean ocean, minutes walk from everything. restaurants, bars, coffee shops, pools, shops. Right on the Placencia sidewalk - the narrowest street in the world. Don’t be fooled by isolated locations up the peninsula or out on the cayes. Rent a golf cart from Jaks around the corner and drive the peninsula any day or rent a pango and see any caye you want. A full service hotel like stay in a stilted Belizian cabana.

I had to book here on a whim because I showed up in Placencia after a long road trip and most places were booked up. They fortunately had one lodge available and I stayed there a couple nights. It was soo wonderful, they provided hammocks, had cleaners come everyday, beautiful and extremely clean rooms. It's right next to the beach and has the most beautiful views. It is not for people on a budget but I would stay here again anyday regardless.

We stayed at the beachfront cabanas and the location could not have been any better. Simple, comfortable and clean cabanas right on the beach. Right next to barefoot bar, tipsy tuna and de tatch among others. You don’t ever have to leave the beach for meals or drinks, unless you want to venture out. Our kids played at the beach all day and would walk in to take a nap or sleep in the hammock on the porch. What a relaxing vacation. Highly recommend!!!

We spent a week in total comfort at Ranguana Lodge in one of the beachfront cabanas. The breeze never stops. There's plenty of shade under the palm trees and the covered porch with hammock and comfortable chairs is a great place to pass a lazy afternoon reading a novel (plenty on hand at the office). The cabana has a full kitchen, well stocked, and spacious bedroom with plenty of shelves for our stuff. The staff are friendly and helpful and housekeepers kept our place spotless. You can walk 50 feet to a beach bar if that's your thing (at night, the sea breeze muffles the music and it doesn't run late). Right on the sidewalk, with quick access to good restaurants, a rum bar, patisserie, shops and tour guides. A beach at the point provides quiet water for swimming if the waves are high on the shore. The lodge has beautiful gardens.

What an amazing bungalow right on the beach! Clean and quant and included a kitchenette, fridge, 2 beds, a hammock and fans. We were only going to stay one night and it turned into 2! We had a ball in Placencia and will be back to the Ranguana on the sidewalk.

We stayed for ten days at Ranguana Lodge. It was a bucket list experience. Just a few steps from the water, palm trees in the breeze, beautiful sunrises, and the cabin was just perfect. Our cabin had two queens with tv and air in one room bathroom and shower separate, and a seperate kitchen, which was great since I get up before my wife. The staff was very helpful in answering questions and getting us taxis and airplane reservations. Our sand was raked every day!! Very good experience.

Very good option for a short or a long stay. Some cabanas are situated on the beach but garden cabanas are as lovely when garden is in full blossoms. There was no ac in the room but no need for it at all as there are couple of fans and netted windows which let the air moved around. Cabanas are big, beautifully decorated and clean. We had two wide beds, each with 3 pillows. All towels and bed sheet shiny white. Very good shower. Well equipped kitchen, you can prepare your meals or just eat fruits. Small TV. We had nice small balcony with hammock. Good, strong wifi. Relatively central location, but still quiet. As a small detail water was provided to clean your feet from sand before entering cabanas. When we were there in March, there was a lot of smelly sea grass. You have to walk 10 minutes to public beach to enjoy swimming. Nice service, cards accepted. Would stay there again.

We booked two cottages on the beach for us and our 10 & 12 year old sons, and the stay was picture perfect. Rooms are clean with two full (maybe double??) beds, kitchen, and bathroom with shower (no tub) and you can't beat the location - walk out the front door and you're on the beach staring at the caribbean surrounded by palm trees. Staff is very friendly and nice, from the office staff to cleaners and groundskeeper Hubert who rakes the sand. They were able to provide suggestions for tours and made us feel at home. The one downside for folks who may be light sleepers is that the cabins are located quite close to the Barefoot Bar, which keeps the music going until late at night. It didn't bother us at all after swimming and playing in the sun all day (conked right out until sunrise...) but may be a deterrent for some.

What a place, maybe not even fair for us to review as we have been spending part of most of every February here since 2003. Joy is always making improvements and last year added kitchenettes to each of the three beachfront rooms. Wasn't sure we would be fans of it when she first told us of the additions but it has really been a nice addition. We can do some light cooking rather than looking for a restaurant for each meal. Give it a try and you too will be impressed. Book early if you hope to stay during high season, this place always sells out with many repeat visitors just like us!!
