“Village Inn Excellence!!!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We just finished an 8 day stay at Village Inn Cabanas, right on the beach. It was comfortable and well equipped for our family of 3.

Jacob, the owner, is a really nice guy, and makes sure you are comfortable and well informed, he even offered to drive us to the airstrip to catch our flight back to Belize City.

This is such a quiet and peaceful location, yet it's only a about a 10 min walk to the heart of Placencia Village, with its bar and restaurants etc. We really liked the peace and quiet the Village Inn provided us, and goig to sleep and waking yup with only the sounds of the Carribean lapping at our beach, right outside our Cabana.

Its great to be able to organise your own meals when you want a slow day too. There is a large Mini-Mart about a 3 min walk for provisions if required also.

We will be back again for sure!!!

Mark, Sandra and Tori

Room Tip: Go for the Cabanas at the beachfront.

Our hosts and cabana far exceeded our expectations and made our trip to Belize an unforgettable experience. The hosts would check in with us daily to make sure we had all our needs met, answer any questions we had, and make suggestions about things to do while in Placencia. They would go above and beyond to cater to our needs and make sure we were safe and comfortable on the trip. The cabana itself was incredible- the pictures don't do it justice.
It was literally steps away from the ocean and only about half a mile away from the city center where all the restaurants, bars, stores and shops were. This made it easy for us to enjoy a romantic getaway away from any distractions and crowds, but at the same time was very convenient when we needed or wanted to get out into the town.
For folks traveling to Placencia- just be aware that the village is about a 3.5 hour drive from Belize CIty Airport. We highly recommend that you make this drive during the daylight hours to reduce the chance of getting lost (Placencia is very easy to get to, but not an easy drive at night). And don't worry, the drive is definitely worth the incredible stay in the village of Placencia and in the Village Inn. We had no regrets.
We will definitely be back to the Village Inn. Best traveling experience we have ever had. Perfect for a romantic get-away. Hosts were amazing. Completely worth the price!

Loved my stay at the Village Inn, the owner/operator was a great host and very responsive to my needs. The cottage was steps from the water, and quite comfortable! Would stay there again! The hammock was awesome and the beach chairs were right out of a Corona commercial!

Room Tip: all the cottages are cute and nice! two are beach front, the other ones are set back a bit but stil...

Our Cabana was excellent, clean and perfectly located just north of the village on the beach. The owner, Jacob was the best and made sure that our stay was enjoyable. I highly recommend the Village Inn and I plan to return next year!

We loved our stay at the Village Inn over a 4 day weekend at the end of April. The cabana is super cute and even though the one we rented was not "right on the shore" we still woke up to the sound of the ocean crashing and could see the ocean clearly from the front porch.

The room had two queen sized beds, a small kitchen and bathroom. There was no AC (though Jacob says this is coming soon) but that was only a problem on one particularly hot, breezeless night. The ocean normally gives off a nice breeze so AC wasn't totally necessary.

Jacob was very accommodating and helpful. He gave us a ride into town (would have been a 15-20 min walk otherwise) on our first night to give us a feel for the place and took us to the grocery store so we could stock our kitchen with supplies. He even took what we bought back for us and put it in our fridge while we stayed in town and enjoyed dinner. Throughout the weekend he was always nearby if we needed him and willing to help with any questions we had about Placencia.

We will definitely be recommending the Village Inn to anyone who's looking for an affordable, private stay in a good location.

Room Tip: The cabanas are closer together than it seemed from the website. They're all close to the beach.

The Village Inn occupies the nicest, cleanest stretch of beach in Placencia, about a 10 minute walk down the beach to town, and a 3 minute walk up the beach to fancy shmancy Turtle Inn (cocktails at the beachfront bar are highly recommended).

Our cabana (Cabana de Menona) was large and clean, with comfy beds and decent kitchen facilities. The grounds and beach were well maintained with a couple of palapas and chairs to lounge on and lots of coconut palms.

Downsides; the lock on our front door was ridiculously messed up. I'm talking 5 minutes to open it and get inside. It took us days to master. If you read this, please please get a new lock. And wifi, please install wifi in the cabanas so your customers don't have to sit on your porch to check emails.

Village Inn cabanas are the most relaxing, perfect place to stay in Placencia for people looking to be away from the bussle of town but only a 10 minute walk or 3 minute bike ride to everything in town. Right on the beach so the sound of the waves and the breeze put you to sleep at night.
Jacob Perez, the host and owner, will do everything he can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, including airport pickup if requested and ride to town if needed.
He will also help in arranging tours and fishing if needed.
