We just spent a week at Captain Jak's. It is within walking distance of everything we went to. There is a grocery store right across the street, and a fruit stand one block away. The cabins are clean, fairly basic, but you have everything you need. We enjoyed watching Iguanas and Geckos, and the many colorful birds. They have two...

It's perfect, everything about this place made it perfect. It is located in perfect walking (strolling) distance to everything, coffee shop, groceries, laundry service and the best bar on the beach, The Barefoot Bar. Placencia is a tiny place and it won't be that way long, GO NOW! Belize law prevents hotels or resorts to block access to the beach...

Captain Jak's is beautiful and Erin and Lucky are awesome hosts! The location is perfect and in walking distance to absolutely everything you want, but still enough out of the main street that it isn't as busy. Only suggestions - the birds and chickens wake up early so bring some ear plugs if you want to sleep in.

I stayed at Captain Jak's recently with 6 friends. We rented the villa. I was a little worried about sleeping arrangements, but the two queens in the bedrooms, the full and the twins in the lofts were just fine. Lucky & Erin were very helpful and sweet. Lucky even gave us some home made bread from a local family. The...

We rented the villa for a week to celebrate a friends special birthday. It was exactly what we were hoping for. The place is quite large with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable furniture. 2 of the bedrooms are air conditioned and have en-suite baths. The other beds are in sleeping lofts above the living room and kitchen. We slept...

We stayed at Captin Jak's in Placencia for 9 wonderful days. Lucky and Erin were so warm, hospitable, and helpful. The cabins are clean, comfortable, and have everything you would need. The property is beautiful and well looked after. It is situated right beside the lagoon, so take advantage of sitting out on the dock to watch the sunset. What...

Recently spent a week here while visiting friends. Can't thank the owners enough for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Every comfort was provided. The resort is close to shopping, restaurants and bars, yet the area is peaceful and secluded. The property boasts numerous flora and a myriad of butterflies. The beach is just across the road on one side, and...

A great, quiet and beautiful compound with wonderful hosts! The villas and rooms are completely furnished for short or longer term stays, Coffee Makers, fridges, stoves, and everything you need to cook at home, yet only a short walk to some of the best Restaurants and Bars and Shops Placencia offers. Right across from the beach, they have lagoon access...

Their descriptions and photos are very right on. We (2 of us) wanted rest and quiet. We got it. Spent 8 nights there and enjoyed every minute. Got kind of warm and of course there is high humidity, but the fans keep it okay. Perfect sunsets and small village to explore. Do not miss Tutti Fruitti ice cream. Attended church...

We booked the Private villa back in the fall of 2012, for Spring break 2013. We got back last night. We have a family of 4 adults and met my sister and her friend so there was 6 of us in the house. It is very large that we were never crowded or felt cramped. The Villa has 2 bedrooms...

“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.”
