“DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE ROBBED”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

It's funny how every negative post for this joint is no longer here. My experience is not pleasant. When I was overcharged by the manager he became upset saying, "it's not that much", I told him maybe not for you, but it was for me. He became upset and hung up the phone. ( Jacob never did refund the difference) Not more than 7 hours later we were robbed in the night. NOT A BREAK AND ENTER either, this thief had a key....I leave the rest up to your imagination.
I have since filed a "complaint" with the Belize Tourism Board and hopefully with all this no one else has to deal with this kind of abuse. Needless to say, I will never return there again nor will I recommend this place. The Police were great, but the problem is obviously deeper than a thief. There are many places to stay on the Peninsula so please, do your research and save the grief and stay elsewhere is my recommendation...I also stayed in Hopkins and frankly everything from the cabana to the beach was by far superior and far less expensive. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy coming to Belize, I spent 4 months there last year and this year 2 months, it's just too bad this kind of thing happens more regular than not at this small establishment as it can leave negative vibes for some but I won't just sit back and let someone walk into this blind....

Best Cabna on the beach. Jacob is a great host and takes pride in his Cabans. They are very well spaced apart and not on top of each other like the other ones in Placencia. At least once a day somone walking the beach stoped to take a pic and often ask questions. We will be back!!!

The most perfect setting for cabanas anywhere! Jacob made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. A short walk from the sidewalk, close to the airport. Fishing from the beach. Could not have been better!

We loved staying at the Village Inn. Location was perfect. Short walk into the Village, but away from the noise and activity. Sitting on the wraparound porch we saw dolphins swimming in the bay and huge starfish hanging out 10 feet from our cabana. The cabanas are very comfortable but if you want luxury you may not be happy here. We enjoyed being left on our own, but if we needed anything Jacob was more than helpful.

Room Tip: The Cabana Del Playa is right on the beach with a wrap around porch. Let the sounds of the sea lull...

We wanted to be in a quiet, away from people, cook our own meals, and spend every day on the beach! The Cabana Playa provided all of this. A small kitchen, two queen beds, couch, bath with shower, wood flooring, fan, and we were good to go. We spent fourteen slow, sunny days enjoying unplugging in December 2012. Jakob gave us the best customer care, stopping over each day asking what we needed. They cleaned the cabana every other day, gave us bicycles for driving the mile to the shops, fish market, vegetable market, even a tree house coffee house!

Golf cart rental was available, we could walk the beach to the shops, drove to the Marina a few miles north of the airport, and arranged for a rental car on the last day!

Nothing luxurious, just good clean cabanas on the beach!
We would go back again, hopefully soon! Thanks for the fabulous fish, and lobster, Jakob!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

We are just back from Belize where we spent 2 days in Placencia. We stayed at the Village inn at the Del Mar cabana for two nights. The cabana is right on the beach which is very nice and at night you can hear the waves, etc..very relaxing..but you can also hear the traffic as the cabanas are very close to the main street. Our cabana was faily large and had everything we needed. However I would have liked to see it a bit more clean.
Also, the beach area by the cabanas is not very well maintained so we decided to go closer to the center of placencia..close to the tipsy tuna bar which is a great place to hang out. We also had lunch at the Maya beach which I would HIGHLY recommend. Great food, beautiful setting and you can hang out on the beach chair in the afternoon. It was just perfect. We also stopped on our way back at the turtle Inn ( not within our budget to stay) to have a drink on the beach which of course was a bit pricy but very nice.
I am not sure I would go back to the Village Inn. We paid $110.nite which i think is overpriced.

From a direction stand point, The Village inn is at the entrance of placencia. You can get to the center of placencia by the beach ( 10-15min walking distance) or by the main road. We drove back to the Belize Airport from Placencia which took us 3/3h30.
