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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Pros: owner let me leave our luggage in office after checkout time while we were doing activities before leaving the island. Hot shower. Cons: dirty room and towels; dogs from neighbors running around and were vicious; would not stay again

We love to head here at the end of winter for lots of SUN before the busy season of spring & all the yard-work that goes with it. The cabanas have the Best location and are Quiet, clean and relaxing!!!! Miss Janice and staff are pleasant, professional and speak English, as does most of Belize.

They are what you would expect. Super close to the beach, basic, but that's all you paid for right. Friendly staff straightens the room and changes sheets daily. When we were there the sea grass was really bad and stinks, you wouldn't swim through it to get to the nicer water! Totally not the fault of anyone. The great thing... More
