Our group of 9 people rented the private villa plus a two-bedroom cottage. The facilities were very nice, the location was great for walking to town. Oliver the parrot provided great entertainment! We would definitely return.

Captain Jak's is an amazing place to stay! It's located just out of town, but within easy walking distance to everything. The cabins are clean, comfortable and cozy, the grounds are immaculate and the setting is peaceful. We loved their little parrot birds and waking up to their songs and antics! Erin and Lucky are incredibly accommodating and made our...

Captain Jak's totally exceeded my expectations. The cabanas are quaint, yet have everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Kitchen was fully stocked and had everything you need to cook meals if you want, although with all of the delicious local food, I didn't end up using it :) The cabanas were super clean, linens and towels were...

We have stayed at Captain Jaks a couple of times, even though we live here in the village. Whenever we have family in town or want a getaway, this place delivers a magical getaway on the lagoon. The cabins are just like ''going up north" when I was a kid, and supplied with everything you need in the small kitchens...

It is important to understand what Captain Jak´s are offering if you are to enjoy staying here. - The place is kind of small with 5 Cabanas and 1 Villa. 3 of the Cabanas are with one room 2 are 3-room cabanas. They are situated in a park like Garden giving a really nice ambiance, a feeling of being part...

The cottages and grounds are beautifully kept, try to get one right on the dock for some amazing porch side sunsets. Extremely convenient location, market located directly across the street. Recommend the Monkey River tour which you can pick up right at the dock. Luck and Erin are terrific human beings - very friendly, kind and knowledgable. Not the kind...

As divers, nature lovers, and historical tourists, Placencia seemed a great base to cover all 3 generations of interests in our group. We were not disappointed. We stayed for 10 days over Easter at Captain Jaks, in the Villa. We chose the Villa to provide >multiple bedrooms for the 5 of us to relax, and a full kitchen for additional...

This is our second time making our way back to Placencia, and we absolutely loved Captain Jak's! Lucky and Erin are the two most amazing people and their property is ridiculously beautiful. There are 1 room cabins and 2 story cottages. We stayed in the 2 story cottage right on the dock. We loved the view, greenery and the cottage...

While there may be cheaper places to stay in Placencia Village, they will be hard pressed to match the cleanliness, comfort, and service you will find a Captain Jak's. Lucky and Erin provide excellent service, be sure to let them book your excursions, you'll pay less and go with great companies. We already miss the hammocks and Barney and Oliver...

This small cluster of really nice (rustic) cabanas would have been perfect except for 2 things: 1) It's on the lagoon side of the peninsula so the sun pounded in each afternoon to make being in the cabana (or on the porch) unbearable. There weren't any ocean breezes to cool us off, and a fan just didn't cut it at...

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.

“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.”
