I had a wonderful stay at Ranguana. Cabanas are right on the beach with AC, fridge, microwave and great showers. Off season adds additional value! Ranguana's location right by town makes for easy access to Placencia's laid back and fun nightlife.

I stayed for 31/2 days at the Lodge. It's very charming! Right on the water and close to the village action. The cabins are well maintained and very clean. If you are going to stay during the hot, humid months, get one with A/C! It works very well. I ate several times at a restaurant about a 2 min walk...

This place is right on the water and has all the ammenities that you would ever need in this area. Hot shower, satelite TV, A/C, WIFI and kitchen supplies (fridge, toaster ect.). The cabins are all really cute and brightly painted. Waking up and walking next door for breakfast and then to your spot in the sun was a dream....

We stayed at Ranguana Lodge for 5 days earlier this month. The owner, Joy was extremely easy to work with in terms of booking our cabana and plane tickets to Placencia. We arrived earlier than check-in time but were quickly escorted to our cabana, Trigger Fish. You feel as though you are walking through a secret garden as you make...

Stayed at Ranguana Lodge for 10 days in March '11. This beachfront accommodation came very highly recommended by two separate sources who had stayed there. Ranguana is easily the nicest accommodation WITHIN the village of Placencia. It has 3 beachfront cabins (w/AC) and two garden cabins (w/kitchenette but no AC). Our beachfront cabin was perfect for a romantic getaway and...

My wife and I stayed in the Parrot Fish, right on the beach for a week. The location was great, 30 feet to the sea, soft sand under your feet. Rooms were cleaned every day, service was great. The only complaint was nothing to do with the Lodge itself, Tipsy Tuna (Bar and Rest) is about 75 feet to the...

We stayed at Ranguana Lodge for three nights at the beginning of March. The location was great and being right on the beach was wonderful. The rooms are clean but dated. The grounds were beautifully taken care of but it would have been nice if they took better care of the weeds and some garbage at the waters edge. Our...

I can't imagine finding a better location or value. We have stayed with Joy and her exceptional staff for seven different trips and always enjoyed it. We typically stay in the beachfront units for a couple weeks and then for a few days in the garden view rooms which have full kitchenette facilities. Quiet days on the beach are always...

We stayed there for 4 nights in the Parrot Fish cabana. Basically, we walked down 3 steps off of our porch and were on the beach, about 20 steps more and we were in the sea. Our cabana was air conditioned, but with the sea breeze we didn't even need it most of the time. There was a full size...

We had a fantastic experience at Ranguana Lodge! We stayed in the Trigger Fish cabana and loved the view, the sound of the waves, the easy access to the water, and the comfortable beach seating (shade or sun). The staff members were cordial and very helpful both before and during our stay. We were amazed at the cleanliness and beauty...
