Not worth it
While Ranguana Caye is pretty, my recommendation is to go somewhere else. Our first issue was the hot water heater in our room, Man of War. This issue was in another review from 2019, and they still haven’t fixed it. The water was either frigid or boiling hot, and while I appreciated the crew being quick to try and fix it that day, it’s been an issue for several years and should have been resolved before 2021. Secondly were the lack of screens on the windows. There are screens on roughly half of the windows in the cabana. We had to choose between opening the windows to have air circulation or keeping the bugs away. Third is the all inclusive rate, which isn’t actually all inclusive. After two nights on the island, we went to get on the boat to return to Placencia, but we’re told we had to settle our bill first. Since we purchased the $150pp/pn all inclusive package, we were very confused. We had unknowingly racked up an $80usd bill in ‘non local’ drinks in those two days. At no point did the host explain what drinks were extra. Our host informed us that they normally tell the guests what is included and what isn’t when they arrive, but they forgot to tell us. My boyfriend paid, but when we got back home we reached out to the hotel to contest this, and they agreed to refund us the $80. It’s been two months since then, and while I’ve received a ton of emails from Ranguana Caye asking us to visit again soon, they haven’t refunded our money. Not worth the headache

I feel that everyone should experience staying on a remote island at least once in your life. This is THE island to do so. Be aware that due to local fishermen and almost non existent conservation practices there are very few “food fish” in and around this picturesque island cay. In this writers opinion, the staff made the trip memorable, as such we have decided upon returning next year as well. The food was divine, we ate the local lobster each and every day along with local staples such as fried jacks, plantain and whole fried fish.

Shadow the island dog and the rest of the crew made my island getaway special! I enjoyed the beach bbq, ample painkillers (of the liquid variety), along with the peaceful night's sleep in my cabana. Truly a unique little island escape.

I really felt like I was away from it all; after about half an hour or so from Placencia we arrived on what looked like a green little cream puff of an island. Juan and the rest of the team on Ranguana cooked our meals and showed us around the island, including snorkeling on the reef. If you're looking for an off the beaten path eco-lodge, this is the place!

This is a beautiful, remote island. Amazing snorkeling right off the beach, tasty food and nothing beats the sound of waves to help you get to sleep. If you're lucky, you may see sea turtles hatch on the island!

Ranguana Cay is getting away from it all, many come for the day, but it's real serenity is found in the breezey evenings. The food was amazing, but don't expect a lot of choice and enjoy seafood! The cabanas are rustic, no AC, but not too small. Great snorkeling but the island is far enough out on the reef that there is always a current. And Freddy the bartender/concierge is awesome!

We (party of 4) stayed two nights and had the island to ourselves, what a treat! Play Robinson & Crusoe (with a lot more amenities (kayak, paddle, snorkeling) and a truly great staff. Thank you to Freddie for being such a good host and Bar man by excellence. We had the best cook Rowan (spelling?!). Ivan our conch hunter. Great game of dominos guys! Only one issue the hot water heaters especially in Man of War are very temperamental and can spew boiling water that can really scorch you. So beware! Also the floor of the shower in Man of War needs redoing.
