Myself and a female travel companion stayed at the Ranguana Lodge for 2 nights prior to boarding a catamaran sailing out of Placencia for a week. It was the perfect accommodation for us (thank you, TA!) The location was perfect; right on the sand but within walking distance to everything. We stayed in the beach-front cabana called Angel Fish and...

Ranguana Lodge was a welcome place to spend a few days before traveling out to Hatchet Caye. The cabanas are set in a lush tropical setting filled with flowers. We actually saw several people walking by stop to photograph the flowers. We were coming from Guatemala and up country Belize and decided on Ranguana as a place to stop for...

Very cute cabanas with beautiful grounds. Some noise from adjacent bar, but usually quiet fter 10 pm. Enjoyed having the fridge and coffee pot. We brought a hand blender and fixed fresh fruit smoothies for breakfast. Very clean. Although we couldn't swim right off our beach, a 20 min. walk brought us to a wonderful sandy swim area. Nice to...

These little cottages are the cutest place we stayed in Belize. They have a front porch and plenty of space. We stayed in Triggerfish and had two beds, fridge, toaster and coffee pot as well as a microwave. The bathroom was decent. The location is great for walking and you can't beat that ocean view. One word of caution...the wind...

In writing a review, one cannot blame nature in the overall experience. However, since early February, the shoreline of Placencia is about 30 feet deep in washed up sea grass. It's impossible to enter the water from the beach in front of Ranguana. We accepted this to be the fault of climate and storm fronts that had washed it in...

We stayed at Ranguana Lodge for 4 nights in January/2012. We paid $90/ dollars a night for the cabana in the garden. It was spacious, clean and had 2 beds so it could easily sleep a small family. It also had a kitchen with pretty much everything you needed. We didn't end up needing it but had we been staying...

I spent a lot of time reading reviews before our trip to Belize. You always wonder whether you are going to make the right decision. However, with Ranguana, we most certainly did. I have to add that we cycled from Placencia village all the way to Maya Beach (which is 7 miles from the village) and this is by far...

Just returned from a 6-night stay in the beachfront "Trigger Fish" cabin at Ranguana Lodge. Simple, but pleasant accommodations right on the beach. Nothing fancy about the rooms, but that's what we expected. The staff was friendly and helpful and the air conditioning in the room was great on those warm, humid evenings. The grounds are lovely, full of flowers,...

“The beach-front cabanas are only mildly more preferable as they offer a better 180-deg beach view.”

“Choose the ocean front cabanas if you want AC and to be right on the sea.”
