We stayed at Captain Jak's Cabanas in March of 2017. We had the cabana with air conditioning. We were amazed at our view of the lagoon, framed by a large coconut tree. The cabana was spacious, with a full kitchen fully stocked with dishes, utensils and pots and pans. A four burner stove with full refrigerator was a bonus for...

I was walking past a wood carver whom I'd watched at his fathers side year's ago, he was making jewelry from a dead sea turtle, his work was beautiful, he had many sales, more to come. As he & I walked to the art shop to "run the credit card" he said to me that he knew how I felt,...

We rented a golf cart for 4 hours and had so much fun we extended it another 3 hours. Captain Jak's was a great clean place with super friendly staff. Renting a golf cart for a day is a great way to explore the peninsula and Captain Jaks is a great place to rent from!

Placencia is in the midst of a major development and there is hammering all around as the old places are knocked down and new, bigger ( not necessarily better) go up, especially on the Caribbean side. On the main dusty highway coming into the last leg of Placencia you will find Captain Jak's run by an expatriate couple, Erin and...

When we checked in we were pleasantly surprised to have an upgrade to the house. It is absolutely beautiful with all the wood. It will sleep 8 we were told, but I am pretty sure it could be 10 or 12 depending on the crew. There are TVs and I think a vcr- we didn't use them so I couldnt...

I have stayed at Captain Jak's twice in the past 6 months, and both times I had a wonderful experience. The rooms are updated and clean and equipped. The first time I stayed in one of the upstairs apartments which was amazing. The kitchen is absolutely incredible especially if you are like me and enjoy cooking. The second time we...

My Boyfriend and I stayed here for 11 days. It was just what we wanted and needed. We rented a cabana, it had a mini kitchen with good size fridge, butane cook top, and everything else you would need in a basic kitchen. The size was great for the two of us, Lucky and Erin do offer bigger suites for...

We rented a golf cart for the day in Placencia and drove up the coast through Seine Bight, Maya Beach and ended up at the Belize Ocean Club for lunch and a refreshing dip in their pool. The golf cart was around $40 for the day and all their carts are new and in excellent condition. You will need to...

We stayed in one of their cabana's about a week ago. The owners Lucky and Erin are fantastic, in fact their whole staff is great. They are very hands on and suggested Percy for the Monkey River tour to us. He was the best. The cabana was clean and very comfortable. They were very helpful. I would be very happy...

Captain Jak's has its own private marina which allows you to leave from your door step for diving, sailing, fishing, Caye hopping, kayaking, or snorkeling. Zip lining, Mayan Ruins and cave tubing aren’t far away either. The owners of villa resort live on the property and they are some of the best hosts you will find in Belize. Make sure to ask them about their sailing trips. There is nothing like sailing with Lucky and Erin on the warm Caribbean Sea, anchoring at sunset and BBQing the fresh catch of the day while drinking their famous rum punch.You must experience Captain Jak’s. ... more   less

“The cabana closest to the boat deck was too hot on the front porch to sit out on in the afternoon. A more shady location would be more comfortable.”
