The experience:

As soon as you enter the welcome gate, you will be transformed - you will immediately experience tranquility in the peaceful and exotic oasis. The goal is to capture the essence of why people travel to Placencia - for the vintage Caribbean, tranquil, remote fishing village vibe - totally relaxed.

Caribbean Beach Cabanas is the tropical hotel paradise you picture when you think about a beach vacation in the Caribbean. The rustic-luxury boutique microresort, beachfront, is right on the famous Placencia Sidewalk and the fun of the village is just steps away.

The only adults-only (18+) resort on the peninsula, and one of the only resort experiences where you can walk to everything in town 

The only adults only resort in Placencia. Award winning boutique hotel with consistent 5* feedback.

Location

Located on the beach on the famous sidewalk in the centre of Placencia village, walking distance to restaurants and bars.

Walk the "loop" of the village. You can't get lost here, and you will get a village map at check in. Follow the loop starting either on the main street or the sidewalk. This loop allows you to see the whole village and get a feel for the tour booths, shops, restaurants, and bars that draw you in. As you are walking around, check out the local woodworking, have a coffee at Above Grounds (looks like a treehouse), stop and have a gelato at the famous Tutti Frutti, and have a look at all the farmer's market stands (we recommend purchasing some tomatoes, an onion, cilantro, a jalapeno, and a lime- mix these together with bit of salt [available in suite] and some tortilla chips from the grocery store - all for under $5!) Stop and check out the pier - a lot of good bird/people/fisherman/dolphin watching here. Walk by and see what is happening at Tipsy Tuna and Barefoot Bar; they advertise their activities on chalkboards throughout the village (and they are right next to each other, this is the heart of the village fun.) Enjoy the shops and art galleries all throughout the village. Try Brewed Awakenings for their excellent coffee, blended drinks, and seaweed shakes.

Bikes, kayaks, paddleboarding…it is highly recommended that you set a day aside to just enjoy the beach. At CBC, they have bikes, paddleboards, kayaks, endless beach games, not to mention a cozy tropical pool, and tons of floats, rafts, cushioned loungers, hammocks, beach beds, and more to keep you entertained.

Rent a golf cart for the day. You can drive it all the way up the peninsula (you are allowed to take it as far as the Placencia Hotel - after that, only cars). You can rent a golf cart at Captain Jak's, walking distance to CBC. You can drive north through an authentic Garifuna village in Seine Bight (this is not set up for tourists, while it looks a bit rough, the locals are warm and friendly, and are very used to visitors - lunch at Vern's is one of the top rated places for local food.) Farther up, you will end up entering charming Maya Beach. Here you will find what looks like Florida from the 1940's. Highly recommended is lunch or dinner at Bubba Q’s BBQ, Maya Bistro, or Umaya. Park your cart, and walk around here on the beach - lots of little quiet beach bars. Most places let you walk around their facilities. Another worthwhile stop to sightsee is Singing Sands - very charming place for lunch. You can bowl at Jaguar Lanes, or check out the Placencia Hotel for lunch and a swim.

Rent a car for the day. (easy to do from the village - Barefoot Rentals is a good one), and either go to the Mayan King waterfalls - this is a popular place to have lunch, swim, and picnic, just north of the peninsula. It is a relatively safe and easy drive. A bit farther away, but within an hour, there is amazing hiking at Bocawina (and ziplining.) A fun stop on the way home is Lost Reef, for a couple drinks and a swim. You can even check out a working Banana Farm, or do amazing hiking at Bocawina or Cockscomb if you are willing to drive a bit farther.

The property

Guests feel transported to an exotic paradise as soon as they walk through the welcome gate! There is a warm, welcoming guest reception area, with complimentary rum punch and cold, essential oil-infused towels. The on-site concierge is there to cater to your every need. The ambiance at CBC are meant to set a tranquil mood, with earth tones and textures, soothing art, and impeccable cleanliness and landscaping. 

The tropical, exotic pool is wonderfully unique and ready to provide an unforgettable experience.

The beach is the largest and most tranquil in the village. Relax on hammocks or enjoy the beach massage services.

The accommodation

Luna and Sol Cabanas are where it all started! A "cabana" means a small house on the beach. These twin stand alone cabanas are stunning with mahogany ceilings, bamboo accents, tropical and exotic art, luxurious bedding, huge verandas with a bar, hammock, and lounge chairs, outdoor conch shell shower (and a spa-quality indoor bathroom and shower as well!), exotic palapa (meaning palm leaf) roof - and they are the closest to the sea. They are slightly off set to offer privacy, both with direct sea views in the front of your veranda.  They have the same amenities, appointments, and furnishings.  Both offer spectacular views of the sea, tropical foliage, and amazing sunrises.

La Casita is a truly unique Caribbean experience! This suite is designed to be an authentic, beach-shabby-chic, and exotic experience people dream about on their beach vacation. Guests are amazed as they enter their large veranda with a private palapa bar, and enter into a traditional style Caribbean cottage, with high ceilings, soothing Caribbean colors, and exotic art inside and out, everywhere you look! La Casita sits in between Sol and Luna, set a bit farther back, so you can enjoy direct sea views and privacy on your porch-a porch that is perfect for an afternoon nap in your hammock.

La Hacienda - The beach house has 2 gorgeous large bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen) and 2 full bathrooms, with large tiled showers. It even offers a 3rd floor viewing tower with sweeping views of the sea and village! In addition to all the amenities above, La Hacienda offers a beach experience unmatched anywhere in the village:

Villa Playa and Villa Mar - There is nothing like these 2 Villas anywhere on the peninsula....large king suites, steps from the sea and pool. You can't get any closer to the sea in a brand new, spa-like villa with private rooftop deck, with lower veranda, pool, and all our outstanding amenities, starting at $199, anywhere on the peninsula!

Picture a Mexican-style stucco villa, overlooking our pool from the front, and from the side - views of the Caribbean Sea...on the rooftop deck, you have your own palm leaf umbrella with bar table and chairs, and a cushioned, shaded beach bed. The lower wrap around verandas have comfortable, cushioned adirondack chairs and relaxing and cozy hammocks. The suite is modern, clean, sleek, beach style, with a king bed, microwave, coffeemaker, and small fridge, along with a/c, flat screen TV - and much more.

La Casa is a new and unique experience for guests! This is the largest one-bedroom offering, for those who would like a full apartment during their stay. La Casa has a full kitchen, a bar table with sea view both inside and on the veranda, a lovely couch and tranquil sitting area on a covered veranda outside, sitting area with full couch and flat screen TV, a tranquil and exotic king bedroom with flat screen and attached bathroom - tiled shower and spa-like touches - with a marble counter and a hand-painted mural. The rich, exotic feeling inside this apartment will tell you you are somewhere special - and the modern beach touches will enhance the upscale environment. La Casa sits underneath La Hacienda which also makes it great for groups of 6. If you would like a stand-alone cabana please check out the other options!

The staff and meals

La Cantina on-site offers drinks, lunch, and snacks at the pool, beach, or on your veranda. 

Picture the perfect little tiki bar…having breakfast delivered to your veranda in the morning…snacks, meals, or drinks poolside or beachside…you’ll have trouble deciding where to have your next beach dining experience! The guests-only bar and restaurant service provides touchless pay and breakfast-in-bed delivery options, or enjoy safe and socially-distanced options with endless variety, in the most tropical, exotic, and charming setting you can imagine….
