“Great place to stay if you are visiting Placencia region”
Reviewed 12 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We were satisified with our one week stay at Captain Jaks. We had a cozy comfortable and clean cabin. The property is well located within easy walking distance to the beach, stores and restaurants, but the cabins are set in a charming tropical garden so that when you are sitting on the cabin veranda looking out to the pier and the lagoon you do not feel like you are in town at all. Captain Jaks has golf carts, bikes and kayaks available for renting at reasonable prices and it is a great way to explore the immediate area. Our congenial hosts Erin and Lucky made our stay effortless. Jason was also always he was alwayspleasant to talk with. All in all Captain Jaks is a great place to stay if you are planning to visit the Placencia area!

“Placencia weekend”
Reviewed 15 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The property is beautiful! I stayed in the villa with others from my field school, and we all fell in love with the place. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect! Erin and Lucky are an awesome and super friendly couple; they made sure we got everything that we needed, and were always around if we did want anything. If I ever get the opportunity to travel to Placencia again, I will definitely stay at Captain Jak's.

“Awesome place, amazing owners, great town”
Reviewed 23 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We booked out stay through a tour company called Caribbean Tours, which triple booked us and our friends and left us sharing a cabana (book directly through Captain Jak's and avoid Caribbean Tours at all costs). Lucky and Erin, the owners of Captain Jak's, cleared things up and made us feel completely at home. These two are amazing people and do everything they can to accommodate their guests.
The cabanas and cabins are beautiful, with Belizean made hardwood furniture, plenty of floor fans, and everything you need to have a great stay. They're comfortable, clean, and the property itself has a lot to offer as far as local flora and fauna (two parrots, Barney and Oliver, that greet you as you come and go).
The price is right and the experience is enhanced just by staying at Captain Jak's.
Lucky and Erin are great with booking local flights, dive trips, etc. and can usually get you a 10-20% discount. We saved 20% on our flight back to Belize City ($40 on two tickets) by booking through them, and 10% on our two dive trips at Avadon Dive.

“Great place and great people in a peaceful paradise.”
Reviewed 11 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

From the time we checked in to the time we left, the hospitality was great. Lucky made us feel right at home and was always there when we needed something. The groundskeeper Jason was just as helpful and friendly and willing to help us with anything. The cabana was very secluded and tidy and we felt right at home. I preferred being on the lagoon side of the peninsula because there seemed to be less wind than the Sea side. The beach was about a 5 minute walk so the location was ideal. Also since Placencia is so small we were within walking distance to all of the bars/ restaurants. If I ever go back to Placencia, I would definitely consider Captain Jaks as my first choice.
