We stayed in the Parrot Fish cabana for six nights in January 2016. If you are looking for the Ritz, this isn't it. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable spot within steps of the ocean, this is perfect. We had everything that we needed and the location could not have been better. Just walk the sidewalk to get...

We enjoyed staying at this hotel very much. The staff is super friendly, and helpful. This property was right next door to the barefoot bar and tipsy tuna so if we wanted a drink it was not far. the De tach restaurant was 100 feet in the other direction and the Ocean was 40 feet away which we enjoyed immensely...

Ranguana Lodge has been the perfect central location to enjoy the village of Placencia. Located on the beautiful picture perfect beach the small cabana suited our needs perfectly!! It is within short walking distance of good food, shopping or simply walking the famous sidewalk right outside the lodge. The Angelfish cabana has small safe, fridge, microwave, coffee pot, a few...

Very happy with our Butterfly fidh cabin back from beach. We got the last one and were disappointed it wasn't on the beach. But it is great! Larger than others - very clean and well appointed with 2 beds and full kitchen. Staff very helpful. At Centre of town including 2 popular beach bars.

The pictures are true to life. Beautiful view - steps from the beach. We wouldn't stay there again tho because of how close it is to Tipsy Tuna & the Barefoot beach bar. Very loud on Friday & Saturday night, even tho they are suppose to be quiet after a certain hour.

Needed a place close to restaurants and grocery store to start our kayak expedition in the Cayes. Ranguana was a perfect choice. Right on the beach and close to everything we needed! Cabana was better than expected. The A/C was mandatory! The staff was more than helpful. Will visit again.

“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.”
