Basic but lovely cabanas right at the tip on the Placencia penisula, The ones closest to the sea are about 15 feet from the water. Water is extremely calm and has a gentle slope so would be great for families. A little bit of snorkeling just off the beach. Can walk to a number of restaurants.

I was the minor victim of a booking mistake. It was no big deal, because, well because its Placencia and everything just flows.Janice, fortunately had a nice clean beach front cabana that suited me perfectly. Happy as gecko laughing on a banana leaf!

Great staff makes you feel very welcome right from the beginning. Our cabana was a cozy little double bed setup with a fridge, microwave and a bathroom. A hammock and a couple of chairs made the porch the most inviting place to stay, the sea only ten or fifteen steps away. Most nights it was wonderfully breezy. You can easily...

The cabanas are perfect for right on the ocean!!! For Four nights I literally could open my door and walk 25 to 50 feet to the ocean!!! The rooms are very quaint and minimal amenities but the luxury of the view just makes up for it entirely!

We stayed at Tradewinds totally coincidentally. We were double booked and Janice (the owner) happened to have a room available. We were really lucky The cabanas are very nice and comfy. They are directly on the beach just 5 steps away from the sea. Only 5 minutes away there is a town center, port and all happenings. But you will...

Nice location as it is near the end of the peninsula. You have several options. I would advise against the cheapest guest rooms as there is little room except for sleeping. The cabanas on the beach are the nicest. Since there is no AC these are also the coolest for sleeping. The place is in need of maintenance and I...

The location, quiet and 20 feet from the water, is the best. But Janice, who has owned it for over 30 years, can't get around to check on things, and/or no longer cares. They have 4 kayaks but only 1 is sea worthy. There is garbage around the place. The maid just stopped by to say hi but never cleaned...

Came down for Thanksgiving in Placencia. Loved our room, right on the beach. Can't go wrong here.. It isn't upscale, but it's clean, comfortable, and the sound of the ocean, guarantees a good night's sleep.

This place is fantastic! Private cabanas right on the water, very clean and excellent service. Nothing more really needed. Janice was very easy to book with and had everything ready for us when we arrived.

We were here just after Lobster Fest, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. There were 4 of us in 2 cabanas. The cabanas are literally right on the beach - a great place to watch the sun rise and to fall asleep to the waves at night. Remember that this is not a 5 star place and...
