The Cabanas are definitely conveniently located as advertised. Everything really needed was there. Bathroom was actually quite decent with a real good shower. Tap water is drinkable, Really! The large cabana we had was quite spartan but functional. Area is fairly quiet with the exception of traffic down the dusty street very close to cabana. With all the wndow shutters... More

Garden Cabanas are a group of seven cabanas located a block west of the main road in Placencia. There are four large and three small cabanas - I had one of the small cabanas for a month in Feb-March 2013. If you don't have high expectations, you won't be disappointed. The cabana I had was 12' x 18' in size... More

We were concerned with the couple of posts that complained of the heat, but we were delightfully surprised with a newly painted cabana (the tin roof being painted is the key) that stayed cool all day. Granted it's not like you're in A/C, but with a fan keeping the air moving even I (who likes to keep my house at... More

Thank you Nick for your welcomed review of our Cabanas. Stefano and Tom and the crew have worked very hard these last months to remodel and refresh the property. I am so glad that it is appreciated. It is also good to know that the new color on the roof has helped so much. We are also in the process... More

While Garden Cabanas was cheap and decently sized, there is no air conditioning, so the place was hot, 24 hours a day. Impossibly to cool down in here during the hot day, and difficult to sleep in. Unfortunately we had horrible "neighbors" staying next to us, and the cabana offers no noise protection either (there are no glass windows, only... More

We are very sorry that your stay at the Cabanas was not as you had anticipated. We appreciate your candid review and as you can see from later reviews we have worked to address the issue of the heat. The foliage on the grounds has been cut back drastically to take advantage of the Caribbean breezes. Additionally the cabanas have... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Garden Cabanas. I agree completely that the small cabanas needed some some attention.

We stayed in a large cabana, which was pretty comfortable and met our needs for a 3-day stay. Best part was the location convenient to restaurants, shops and the beach. One disadvantantage was that the manager is off-site and not easily available when we needed to reach him (to get keys, to get more toilet paper). However, this was good... More

We have stayed in Placencia many times but recently stumbled upon this cute cabana deal in a quaint village setting.
