I have lived and travelled around Belize for 6 years.My friends and I were going to Seine Bight for a weekend festival that featured various Belizean musical legends. Drove to Placencia because there were no suitable accomodations that we could find in SB. Looked at two places-one was full-the other smelled musty/moldy and the man that showed us the room...

We had a very bad experience at Ranguana Lodge. This was extremely disappointing, because the reviews on here make this place sound wonderful—and it is not. We had booked a beachside Cabana for 10 nights. This turned out to be a big mistake. I wish I could go back in time and not reserve this room. When we first arrived,...

My husband and I stayed here in May 2007. I know I should have written a review a long time ago but am just doing it now. We still talk about this place and our trip to placencia all the time. This is a great place right on the beach. It was our first experience staying in what I call...

Ranguana was a perfect place to stay for Lobsterfest weekend (very fun!!). The festival is a few minute walk away (only disadvantage being the live music that you can hear at night). The beach was nice and pretty much right outside of your door. Plenty of good food within a 3-10 minute walk. The staff was friendly. The Garden cabana...

I had a wonderful stay at Ranguana. Cabanas are right on the beach with AC, fridge, microwave and great showers. Off season adds additional value! Ranguana's location right by town makes for easy access to Placencia's laid back and fun nightlife.

I stayed for 31/2 days at the Lodge. It's very charming! Right on the water and close to the village action. The cabins are well maintained and very clean. If you are going to stay during the hot, humid months, get one with A/C! It works very well. I ate several times at a restaurant about a 2 min walk...

This place is right on the water and has all the ammenities that you would ever need in this area. Hot shower, satelite TV, A/C, WIFI and kitchen supplies (fridge, toaster ect.). The cabins are all really cute and brightly painted. Waking up and walking next door for breakfast and then to your spot in the sun was a dream....

We stayed at Ranguana Lodge for 5 days earlier this month. The owner, Joy was extremely easy to work with in terms of booking our cabana and plane tickets to Placencia. We arrived earlier than check-in time but were quickly escorted to our cabana, Trigger Fish. You feel as though you are walking through a secret garden as you make...

Stayed at Ranguana Lodge for 10 days in March '11. This beachfront accommodation came very highly recommended by two separate sources who had stayed there. Ranguana is easily the nicest accommodation WITHIN the village of Placencia. It has 3 beachfront cabins (w/AC) and two garden cabins (w/kitchenette but no AC). Our beachfront cabin was perfect for a romantic getaway and...

My wife and I stayed in the Parrot Fish, right on the beach for a week. The location was great, 30 feet to the sea, soft sand under your feet. Rooms were cleaned every day, service was great. The only complaint was nothing to do with the Lodge itself, Tipsy Tuna (Bar and Rest) is about 75 feet to the...

“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.”
JaneFraleigh, 13 Mar 2017 | Read review
“All the cabins are great but if you need a beach view or to be right on the beach then ask for a beach side cabin”
