“Reasonably priced accommodations in the center of town.”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed at the Latitude 17 north cabana for a full month.
Pros

Near the center of town, convenient to most everything, with quick and easy access to the beach.
A comfortable bed and air conditioning were essential comforts provided. The full kitchen makes the place suitable for long term stays, and we enjoyed having some basic condiments on hand.
The property owner is friendly, and can offer good suggestions for local things to see and do.
The provided bicycles were very nice, and made our time in Hopkins much easier.
Hammocks on the porch were very comfortable----I spent a lot of time relaxing there.
The cabana is maintained well, and kept very clean.

Cons

We learned only after informing the management of our 3:50 arrival at the airport in Belize city that if we arrived too late we would not be accommodated, as evidenced by the email we received: "Thanks for the info, please do not waste any time to get from Belize City to Hopkins, you need at least 3 hours! Let me know if your flight is delayed, because we do not checkin in the middle of the night!" It would be helpful if specific hours when guests may arrive were given on the rental advertisements and some alternative means of access for travelers that arrive too late.
Additional accommodations are being added, so the buildings are not as private as they appear to be on the Latitude 17 webpage.
Unfortunately, our cabana was broken into, and we had a lot of money stolen, which really put a damper on the vacation. Management insisted that we go to the police to file a report, but they did not offer assistance or take responsibility for the incident in any way. People around town recognize that crime is increasing, and travelers should be careful to hide money or valuables. Security here could be improved, and I hope as they expand to accommodate more travelers, they take additional steps to provide a higher level of safety for their guests and their valuables.

“Great location, room to spread out in, clean, nicely furnished.”

Unless you want to stay in a resort hotel, about 2 miles from downtown Hopkins, this is the place to stay. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the town of Hopkins from. Latitude 17 is located right in the main part of town on Main Street. The manager, Mirko, was great, and met us upon our arrival, he also provided excellent driving instructions which were needed since google maps put us in the wrong location for the property. He provided a detailed orientation for the property and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Latitude 17 consists of 2 separate units / buildings at the front (on Main Street), and a building in the back which has about 3 units altogether (Not sure how many units in back building since I did not view them). We stayed in the front, right unit (1 bedroom, 1 bath). Even though it is located on the main street, right downtown, we heard very little noise, with the A/C units on. The listing is as described, and the picture is of unit stayed in. The picture does not show that Mirko has now enclosed the downstairs portion of the building, which makes the unit look better from the outside.

The grocery store and fresh vegetable stand are located just a few feet from the property, and there are restaurants located all around. The living area is a nice size, and the bedroom has a great closet for storage of your clothes and luggage. Air conditioning (2 units, one for living area, and the other one for bedroom) works great, and the unit had both a front and back porch, to sit and enjoy. The kitchen is well stocked, and furniture is in good shape and very functional. Water pressure was good (hot & cold), but best to buy purified water for drinking. Mirko has many different short and long term rentals, is well known and liked in town, so will be very helpful is you have any questions at all about the area or getting hooked up for tours and travel throughout Belize. The only negative about the unit was that the bathroom is very small and the shower barely fits one person.

Mirko also supplied free use of bicycles while staying at the property.

“Relaxing stay, hammocking and watching the village life pass by”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Hopkins is a great place for a stay in Belize. We loved our stay at Latitude 17, one of the front cabanas with a large porch by the village road where we watched the village life pass by. To be in the centre of the villige is convenient, with the supermarket, vegetable stands, restaurants and cafes close by. Access to the beach is just across the road as well. Of course, village life means village sounds. No need to bring an alarm clock. The rooster will take care of this. Latitude 17 also provides bicycles which we used daily. Within 5-15 minutes you reach the village bakery, tour providors, more restaurants and the Garfuna culture center. The stay was easy and relaxing. Latitude 17 was very helpful with every need. To a fee, they arrange laundry and can also arrange transport from Dangriga airport

We chose this nice newer and nicely kept upper floor house for our stay in Hopkins and were very pleased with the quality of the furnishings and cleanliness. Very nice bed and linens.
If you are staying in Hopkins, I would highly recommend this accommodation.
