My wife and I booked a trip to Placencia Belize with a three night stay at bulls beach cabanas. We made the reservations several months in advance and paid in full for a beach front cabana. Upon arrival, we learned that the person in charge had given our cabana to another couple because she stated that she had injured her knee and was under the influence of drugs and made a mistake. She did offer us a room in what I suppose you could call a hotel nearby the cabanas. Not beachfront. She advised that this very small dirty room was actually an upgrade because it had air-conditioning. We were very unhappy with the room but felt that we had no choice. The air-conditioning barely worked and the room was still stifling hot. We requested a stand fan in an effort to be able to sleep that night. We observed cockroaches in the room, and the toilet Was not properly secured to the floor. The next morning we returned the keys to the front office and left Bulls Beach Cabanas in search of another place to stay for our next two nights until we checked in to the resort that we booked. in conclusion, the room was very dark and dingy with in adequate air-conditioning or ventilation. We were very very unhappy with the conditions and the fact that what we rented and paid in full was not available to us. We were not offered any money back or any other options to make us more comfortable.…
This is a great location. Simple cabanas right on the beach and centrally located in Placencia -- so that you're close to everything, but not so close that it's noisy at night. Modest but comfortable digs and hosts relaxed and accommodating. Will definitely stay again.
The price for beach front Cabanas is the most inexpensive I have found in Belize. I have stayed at Bulls Cabanas in the past and enjoyed my self each time. This was no different this time. The location is right on as everything Placancia has to offer is right there. Ms Bull is a very colourful character and will help if she can. Her father was the same. These are not five star Cabanas and the price reflects that. Enjoy your time with Ms Juicy.
I stayed at Bulls Beach Cabanas my first time ever in Belize and Juicy (the manager) made it a wonderful experience for me. I stayed at the front cabana steps away from the beach which made it very convenient because I would wake up each morning to swim right in front of my cabana. Juicy also helped me find out the best local tourist attractions that I could do throughout the village and she suggested some great restaurants for me to eat at. The Cabanas were very cozy and gave off an authentic feel to them, my stay was quite enjoyable and I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at bulls beach Cabanas during their stay in Placencia.
We booked this place for 4 nights at the end of our Belize trip. The relatively good reviews here made us think it would be a good choice. We expected a basic, but decent place on the beach. The cabana is indeed on the beach, but that was the only thing that was according to expectation. The cabana was so dilapidated and filthy that I do not even know how to put it into words. I took pictures - so please form your own opinion if you think this is adequate for you. In fact, the place is SO bad that it made me seriously question the other reviews on this place... In addition to the dilapidation, a key concern was the OPEN and LIVE WIRE in the shower (also, see picture). Filth is one thing, but this is how you can get electrocuted!! As if that weren't enough,the response from the owner to our concerns was absolutely rude. The first night when we arrived, we were informed that the cabana was overbooked and we'd be put into another place - NOT on the beach (no refund/discount was offered and the room was crappy). We were not happy about that, but what are you gonna do. Next day, when Juicy was in, I decided to speak to her about this, as well as the cabana and the shower. As soon as I said that I had some concerns, her demeanor changed and she became very agitated and defensive, suggesting that she "upgraded" us because we insisted on AC (NOT true!), that she was NOT overbooked (true, because we saw at night that 3 of the 4 cabins that night were empty - so why were we moved??), and that the wire in the shower is not dangerous. While a manager can have a bad day and be rude, the wire in the shower as well as the dilapidated state of the cabins are a more permanent problem. DO NOT stay here!!…
Well looked after by Sean & Juicy, well priced for my own beach cabana. Nice big bed, my own beachfront patio, a quieter laid back town than expected. Would gladly return. There's music nearby, ends early & the waves drown it out. No Problems.....
Juicy Bull manages these family owned cabins and she is as full of character as her name suggests! We ❤️Juicy! It was last minute that we needed a place and she was able to accommodate us for the night. We couldn't even believe how reasonable the rate was for a place directly on the beach 20ft from the waves! We stayed in cabin #2 and it was awesome. No A/C even needed! We had the windows open at night and I actually got cold, the ocean breeze and sound of the waves are incredible.
We were looking for something either right on the beach for an ocean breeze or something with air conditioning. We met Juicy (she overheard us looking/talking) and she had just what we needed - a room with air. Arrived without a reservation and got a suitable room for one night. Price was reasonable. They don't take credit cards though. Room, bed, shower all ok. Nice location in the village. Empty lot next door kept you from feeling too closed in.
We fell in live with the cabins on sight and decided to rent one for a few days so we could be on the beach in town. The inside was minimal and the showers need re-doing but sleeping there with the sounds of the ocean was bliss. So nice to be able to walk to the restaurants and shops up and down the beach from the cabin. Although there were other cabins nearby it felt very private. Glad we found this place.
We stayed in Bulls beach only couple of nights. Due to the fact that we were double booked in the hotel we actually booked. Juicy Bull was very helpful with lodgings. Had she had more availability we would have been happy to stay longer. Thank you Juicy
