“rustic affordable beach cabanas”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We visited with our family this march and stayed in the two bedroom guest house. We had a wonderful experience while staying at Juila's.

We were a little skeptical about the reviews but took the chance and stayed at Julia's and had a great experience.

Office staff were friendly and the rooms were kept clean. I would recommend staying on your next trip. We paid $85 US a night. We didn't have to walk very far for food; right next door are the Bare Foot and Tipsy Tuna beach bar which are excellent places to meet and socialize with others. Both had excellent food.

If you like the quite environment and don't want to mingle then you might want to look further. I plan to return next year and would definitely stay at Julia's.

Room Tip: Any of the cabanas or guest house

The beach cottages here have a lovely outlook but garden cottages were not very clean and had obviously not had any maintenance done since they were built. The garden itself could have been nice but was rather untidy and a polite request for it to be cleaned around our cottage, where previous occupants had left some litter, was rudely rebuffed. We were prepared to take these shortcomings in good part as a tolerable quid pro quo for a price at the lower end of the local price scale - until we discovered that the bar next door had live music til 11.30 - not 10pm as we had been assured when they were taking our payment! But worse was to come - the bar next door but one, had their "Beach Ball" on our 2nd night with no hope of sleep til well after 2AM! This didn't stop the charming and caring Julia, harassing us to be out of the room by the unusually early checkout time of 10.30am... In her words, our sleepless night was "our problem"!

Placencia is great - but stay away from Julia's unless you're on a really tight budget. And unless you're a dedicated party animal, stay far away from the Tipsy Tuna and it's all night Beach Balls!

A stunning view of the ocean in a chilled-out setting. Our cabana #6 was ocean facing a few steps away from the ocean. It was clean, The hot water was available 24 hours , the shower was decent, hammock was a bonus . The beach was clean, nice clear warm ocean water.What else could you ask for ! It's a really cool and safe place to stay if you truly want to experience the local culture. The bar next door "barefoot bar" is a hub for travelers and locals. I met a lot of interesting travelers and locals during my stay at Julia's. Julia runs the place, nice lady. She was so caring and considerate.
If you are looking for a 4-5 star facility with room service and all other amenities then this is not the place for you.

This is a pretty cool place right on the beach in Placencia Belize.
I stayed 3 or 4 nights last year.

I remember it being a bit hot and the fans didnt seem to be able to cope. Make sure they are clean because it makes a big difference to airflow.

Next door is going to be the new Barefoot bar and it might turn out to be a bit noisy at Julias, however this is a holiday location after all and parties are a natural event here.

Im sure you will enjoy your stay here and the staff are very friendly as are most places in Belize.
Julias does not have food and each room is relatively small. You wont need to walk far to get fed.

Beach is right on property and is easy for everyone, including kids, for swimming.

Room Tip: any room is good. The beach is right outside the door.

We stayed at Julia's for 3 nights while enjoying Placencia. Our cabana was ocean facing which allowed for a nice refreshing breeze, and was a mere 20 steps from the ocean itself. The hammock was a nice bonus for times of rest. The location of Julia's is convenient walking distance to shops and restaurants. The cabana is clean (albeit outdated) however, as it is directly on the beach, you may encounter ants. No big deal. I had read other reviews warning about the noise from the Tipsy Tuna. We stayed for 3 nights during the week, and this was not an issue at all. Julia was very friendly and helpful. The beach front location of the cottages cannot be beat, especially considering the price! Would recommend to other value minded travelers.

I checked in on 26 Apr 2013 without a reservation. The first of three accommodations was a $71/night cabana. It was steps from the seashore and you could feel a refreshing breeze and the roar of the surf. However, that cabana and two subsequent ones over a three day period were crawling with ants, nit, mites and water bugs. The cleanliness was marginal and the cabanas were dilapidated with old and dysfunctional appliances or missing altogether. When complaining to a clerk about the cabana from the night before not having a microwave oven, I was overheard by Julia who commented that if I did not like the cabana, I could leave. My reply was that her comment and attitude were rude and unprofessional coming from an owner.

Room Tip: The cabanas nearest the beach are Caribbean Sea are the best and most expensive. However you will n...

I have read some of the reviews for this hotel and they must have fixed it up. There were 4 of us that split the ocean view room with kitchen, comfy beds, porch, and hammock for $80. It was a wonderful room that was cool at night with a great breeze and we slept like a baby to the sound of the ocean. The staff was friendly, too. The entry is a bit sketchy with the owner's house in need of some paint and repair, but once you get near the beach, it really is a great hotel.

Room Tip: Staying in the rooms on the water is a must.
