I can't say enough good things about Ranguana. The beach cabins are simple, but very well kept and adorable inside. Each room has a deck with chairs and hammocks and the landscaping throughout the property is gorgeous. My boyfriend and I stayed in a cabin a few back from the beach and our room did not have AC, but it...

After a sailing trip through Belize, Ranguana Lodge was exactly what we needed for 2 nights. Air conditioning, huge comfy beds, hot showers, fridge, laundry services, amazing location & views! Loved our stay here and would highly recommend to anyone in Placencia!

The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us get a couple of different tours set up while we were staying there. The cabana was very cozy and comfortable - lots of windows for breeze and light. The kitchenette aspect was very convenient - microwave, fridge/freezer, dishes, etc. There was a supermarket very close by, as well...

We stayed at ranguana lodge for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. We had a garden cabin, without ac, but were perfectly fine with the fans running. It was great to have a little kitchenette, especially to have breakfast at home for early mornings. The location was perfect since we were able to walk around Placencia whenever we wanted. We...

The good stuff: Front desk staff were super nice and accommodating. Town is small and east to walk around from the cabanas. Cabanas have everything you need. Beach side cabanas are so close you can hear the waves. Felt safe and calm. Clean!!! The negatives: You can hear the bar music really clearly for most of the night, it is...

I spent four nights at Ranguana Lodge, three in the beach-front Parrotfish cabin and one in a cabin in the garden. The major difference in lodging is that the three beach-front cabins have air conditioning while the ones in the garden don't. I never used the AC in the beach-front cabin, as the sea breeze and fans kept things cool....

The owner of this establishment truly cares about your experience here and takes very good care of you. The cabanas are very cute, very clean, and did I mention the beach?? It can get a little noisy at night, just because you're close the two bars next door. But the good thing is that they quiet down after midnight and...

These cottages are a nice, simple lodging option, located right on the north edge of "downtown." I would have preferred one of the two oceanfront cottages, but both of them were already booked. My two daughters really enjoyed taking turns on our own private hammock, which was located on our back porch. There is no pool, A/C, or restaurant. There...

We just spent 4 nights right on the beach, in the Triggerfish cabin. We were very happy with the Ranguana Lodge. The staff was quite friendly, the location was perfect (easy walking distance to everything), and the cabin (while a bit rustic) was quite nice. We had air conditioning, but only used it at night; during the day the breeze...

We enjoyed staying here -- the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and we were right in the middle of things. We stayed in the Sea Shell (though we would have preferred a beachfront cabin). No AC, but we didn't need it. Great to have a kitchenette & fridge (just walk a block to the supermarket and load up...

“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”
