Comparing Carol's Cabanas and Robert's Grove is like comparing Belize and Montana. Robert's Grove is a full-service seaside resort north of Placencia Village on the Placencia Peninsula. Carol's Cabanas is a small, mom and pop run operation in the heart of Placencia Village. The cabins at Carol's are small and clean, but not on the beach. They're back by the road - the drawbacks to the location are no seaview and early morning road noise. If you're an early riser, the road noise shouldn't be a problem. Carol's is good value for the money - - so is Robert's Grove, but in a completely different way.
