We actually stayed at a cabana down the street but next time we will definitely be staying at Captain Jak's. The office was sooooo helpful when we went to speak with them about renting a golf cart. They told us about the island (dos and donts), called a cab for us, recommended awesome excursions, etc! Anything you need, they know... More

We didn't rent a cabana but got a guide to bring us around. When we walked into Captain Jaks, we knew we found a legit tour guide. Jason was beyond the best guide we could have ever asked for. His knowledge of the country was mind blowing and was a huge part of us falling in love with belize! We... More

Erin and Lucky are two of the kindest people you can meet. Their place is right across the street from the beach on a lagoon which is quite beautiful. It's comfortable, cozy and very clean. I ended up spending a good bit of time hanging out with them and friends of theirs who will be moving to Placencia. I enjoyed... More

We did not stay at the Captain Jak's cabanas but had a perfect experience renting a golf cart from them. We were staying up the road at the Belize Ocean Club. When we checked in at BOC Captain Jak's had already delivered our golf cart. It was new and in perfect condition. Additionally, their communication while working out the transaction... More

Stayed for 9 days in late May. Our hosts Erin & Lucky were very friendly and made us feel welcom and relaxed. Our cabana was equipped with everything we needed and was just a few steps from the lagoon jetty. The tropical garden was a lovely setting and busy with humming birds, squirrels and iguana to mention a few. Ceiling... More

My husband and I spent two weeks there in Feb. and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It had the right "easy going" vibe for us and was so central to everything - bars, cafes, groceries etc. The staff was friendly and helpful, as others have mentioned the gardens are nice and of course there is the resident parrot to talk to each...

We've been gone a little more than a week but our hearts are still in Placencia. We've been telling everyone at home what a wonderful time we had, but it's really you and your team we should be telling. Captain Jak's really was a perfect spot for us. We loved the cabanas and the cottage - well-equipped, comfortable and not... More

Stayed here our first two nights in Belize, and Lucky and Ivy made sure we made the most of it. They arranged our unforgettable Monkey River tour with Percy, King of the Howler Monkeys; recommended Di Thatch and Barefoot Bar for good eats; had an immaculate well-appointed kitchen for the night we decided to cook; we really need to thank...

You never know what to expect when blindly booking on the internet (no offence trip advisor) but we are delighted. The cabins are all teak wood right on the lagoon. So nice to have a complete kitchen. The tropical garden grounds are meticulously maintained by the charming Louis. Quiet and clean . Glorious!

Captain Jacks was a great place for a quiet, beautiful weeks vacation in Placencia. Our cabana for 2 was one room. full kitchen for eating in with a great front porch. We had a waterfront cabana next to the channel so the deck chairs, hammock and deck was 15 feet away at most. We experienced all the waterway traffic and... More

Captain Jak's has its own private marina which allows you to leave from your door step for diving, sailing, fishing, Caye hopping, kayaking, or snorkeling. Zip lining, Mayan Ruins and cave tubing aren’t far away either. The owners of villa resort live on the property and they are some of the best hosts you will find in Belize. Make sure to ask them about their sailing trips. There is nothing like sailing with Lucky and Erin on the warm Caribbean Sea, anchoring at sunset and BBQing the fresh catch of the day while drinking their famous rum punch.You must experience Captain Jak’s. ... more   less
