What a fabulous vacation! My husband and I recently returned from a week's vacation in Placencia, Belize. We stayed at Captain Jak's and had an amazing time! We rented one of the cottages that overlooked the lagoon and very much enjoyed sitting on our deck watching boats go by. The grounds were beautiful with lots of lush greenery and flowers. The cottages reminded us of a cabin...rustic but comfy!

We were a quick walk from the beach and the village, with lots of little shops and restaurants. The food at every restaurant we tried was excellent!

Our cottage was nicely set up with the basics that we needed for our stay. As we had kitchenette facilities we would eat breakfast and lunch at "home". There is fruit and veggie stand down the street and many supermarkets.

Thank you to Lucky, Erin and Audri who were very welcoming. Also a big thank you to Jason for organizing tours etc for us and answering our many questions about everything and anything!!!

A great vacation and would definately recommend a stay at Captain Jak's!

Room Tip: We stayed in a cottage which was a two story, 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, screened in porch. Plenty of room. All cabanas/cottages seemed to get good shade during the heat of the day. Each place has fans which get well used.

From the moment we stepped onto this little piece of heaven, we felt as if we knew everyone already. We were welcomed by a beautiful small resort who's owners know no strangers. Lucky who goes by the nickname " Extremely" and his beautiful wife and family have allowed guest to discover what living on a paradise island at an amazingly affordable price is all about. Cozy cabanas with beautiful vegetation on the waters edge of Placencia's lagoon offer comfort, full functioning kitchen, comfortable bed, front porches with waterfront lagoon living. Lucky and his wife Erin provided a service that a concierge from the most expensive and elaborate hotels in the world couldn't touch. Not only did he arrange tours for us, but even joined us for dinner and drinks at the famous Barefoot bar later that evening. They also offer golf cart and bike rentals which is all one needs to get around the penninsula. And wait til you meet Barney ( the parrot who doesn't know he can fly and his side kick Oliver who loves to give kisses ( on Lucky's command only). This is definitely a place we will stay at each time we visit Belize. They have become our friends now.

We stayed at Captain Jak's in Placencia for 11 days in March 2012. Nice island feel to it. Cabana and grounds well taken care of. Nice to have a small kitchen. Being on lagoon it was quiet, but hot during midday without the breezes they have on the ocean side. Evening temps and ceiling fan made for good sleeping. Great sunsets. Dog fights/barking several nights after we went to bed, but may have been the same at any lagoon-side accommodation. Easy walk to all stores and restaurants. Only briefly met owners, but Jason was a great help and very informative. Kayaking on lagoon was pleasant early morning activity. Check out Pickled Parrot (good drinks and pizza), Above Grounds Coffee, tamarind pork at Barefoot Bar, fryjacks at De Tatch. Use Office Supply for internet-they have A/C!

We stayed at Captain Jak's in Placencia for 4 days and had an amazing time. The cabanas and the grounds were well kept and cozy. The owners Lucky and Erin are great hosts. They offered a lot of information about the restaurants, bars, and things to do in the area. Lucky arranged a tour for us to see Monkey River with Percy, and we had a blast. Unfortunately we didn't get to take advantage of their bike or golf cart rentals. Perhaps we will next time. We definitely plan on coming back!

I stayed at Captain Jak's for 7 days. The property is beautiful- full of lush vegetation and the home of two charming birds named Oliver (a gorgeous African Grey) and Barney (he may be a parrot, not sure). The owners, Lucky and Erin go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are also some of the nicest people around!

Also very convenient is the fact that you can rent kayaks, bikes and my favourite mode of transport- the golf cart. It worked well for easy adventures to places like Danube Restaurant in Seine Bight (a elegant and delicious Austrian restaurant) or to Maya Beach.

I drifted off to sleep each night in a comfy bed with the sound of distance reggae gently murmuring through my window. In the morning, I woke to the songs of the many birds that you see around the cabanas. Another great feature is the dock that includes plenty of lounge chairs, a hammock and a great view of the gulf.

I would and will recommend Captain Jak's to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Placencia!
