“Best location and accommodation in Placencia!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

My family and I stayed only two nights, but wished we had planned for longer. The cabins are right next to the water, exceptionally clean, and the evening breeze makes for an incredible nights sleep. After walking the beaches, and looking at other places we almost stayed, we couldn't have been happier about our decision. The best beaches are just 10 steps away! We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We chose the smaller older cabin closer to the water, and it was perfect for our family of four adul...

We booked four nights and seven dives through Tradewinds' US based agent. The package clearly described what was included in the package, and what wasn't. Or so we thought! When we arrived we discovered that the not insubstantial cost of all diving equipment hire would be additional. Which was quite frustrating! If they had told us, then it would have been fine. But it was not a pleasant surprise and amounted to additional expense of $180.

Apart from this miscommunication, the apartment we stayed in was very nice. Well decorated with good air conditioning and kitchen supplies. It was also thoroughly cleaned daily, which was appreciated. The staff in the complex were helpful and informative. Also a great location within easy walking distance to the heart of San Pedro.

We stayed at Tradewinds in May and enjoyed our cabana, it was just what we were looking for, quite, clean and right on the beach. No one was in the office when we arrived so we had to track someone down at the bar by the pier. There was a good wind storm one night and we were glad to be in a concrete building. We would stay here again.

Spent 9 nights at Tradewinds in late April. Had a wonderful time. Room was clean with fresh linens each and every day. Good hot and cold water pressure. Small refrig that kept our rum and fruit juices cold. Weather was great and the swimming out front fantastic. Saw and photographed a lot of wonderful fish. Took one tour with DTour into the mountains.

this was our third trip to Placencia and our best so far.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights in late April and had an awesome time. Our place was modest, but it was RIGHT on the beach with a hammock on the front porch, and it was beautiful. They changed the sheets and cleaned up a bit every day. The people posting complaints are forgetting what they paid for. These are beach front bungalows on some of the best beachfront in Placencia! They dont have a/c because you dont need it. Although the owner/keepers may offer you advice on dining and activities if you catch them around and not busy working, they are not your concierge or tour guides. If you want that kind of thing, double your cost and stay at some internationally owned mega resort. Our time here was perfect.

My husband and I stayed in the Blue Dolphin (an end cabanna right on the beach) for 6 days, ocean just 15 ft. from the porch. We enjoyed our stay. Quiet ( except for the ocean when the wind came up) and clean, towels changed every day and beds every other day, good beach, small fridge and coffe maker. I few very small ants, sprayed bug stuff along their trail and the were gone, just don't leave out any food. Loved the bright colors of the Cabann's. Tradewinds is at the south end of the sidewalk, 5 mins. to most of the resturants on the main st. Easy access to everything, Not a 5 star but for the price good value. If you are looking for up scale this is not the place, Would I stay there again, Yes in a heart beat. PS. If no one is at the office go to the house behind the office. Bring a copy for reservation confirmation, I had changed my dates a couple of times and they had the wrong dates, fortunatly Miss Janice had space and could accomadate us. Thank You Miss Janice.

This place has the best location in Placencia - right on the beach and close to all the services. The cabana was lovely and really clean. They cleaned the room every day and also changed the towels. What needs improving is their service. Every time we had to be in touch with the staff we felt like we were huge nuisance to them. One of the rudest places I have ever stayed in but still worth staying because of the location and good rooms.
