Stayed here 2 years back while doing some diving out of Placencia, owner was polite and the units were very well kept. The location is prime with most of the village within easy walking distance, Great area in back to relax in hammocks lounges or in the Palapa.
Three of us rented 2 of the Dolce Cabana Mangrove Apartments for one week. Nicely furnished, clean apartments with canal views. Plenty of space and large showers. Generous sized kitchens which we only used for breakfast as we were scuba diving every day but one. There are plenty of food stores, restaurants and bars within walking distance. We did a Monkey River Tour and the guide picked us up at the apartment dock - very convenient. Owner is very helpful and has a book with restaurant suggestions, etc. which was handy. If you don't care for dogs you might want to go elsewhere as there are 2 dogs on the premises and they roam the grounds doing their business which does get picked up daily.
My husband and I have stayed at Dolce Cabana four years in a row and are NEVER disappointed. Nicole is an amazing hostess. She is kind and helpful. She goes out of her way to make sure you have the best experience in Placencia and at Dolce Cabana. The location is perfect, just a short walk to everything you need. The property is relaxing with plenty of spots to enjoy the gorgeous weather and a small pool to cool off if is too hot. We can’t wait for our next visit. Placencia and Dolce Cabana feels like our home away from home.
Awesome location tucked away off the main drag on a a quiet canal street. Nichole was great at recommendations for locale fare and tours. The apartment was the best place we had stayed while in Belize. We hired a chartered boat per her referral and Devin catered to our desire, fished ,snorkeled and had a delicious bbq on Silk Island. Definitely a memorable day.
If I ever return to Placencia we will book at Dolce!
Very nice place to stay! Nicole is the perfect owner, laid back, low key. Kayaks, bikes and the location make it even nicer. Of course the town is so small that you can easily walk anywhere. Be sure to find the “sidewalk”, because that’s where everything is. The condo is perfect!!
