We had everything we needed here. We stayed for 3 weeks and were not disappointed. It started with the friendly welcome and the way Mirko, the property manager was able to help us out after we had much of our money stolen from our Hotel in Houston. By the way, I don't recommend Houston or the Holiday Inn. The money goes missing right out of your room. Another story....
Although we weren't on the beach, were were very close and the walk was about 2 minutes, if that. We enjoyed all of the local restaurants and both the supermarket and a fruit stand were only yards from our doorstep. Mirko and Wade, the owner, were amazing, and were always around to answer questions and help out in any way they could. We went to the Mayan Ruins, cave tubing, fishing and snorkeling out at the reef, all just by asking Mirko to arrange it.
Latitude 17 had everything we needed: Kitchen, dining area, large deck with 2 hammocks, cell phone (provided with the cabana), WiFi, air conditioning. There was nothing we were missing. And no TV, which was really nice.
Overall, I give this place an A+, and look forward to the next time we are in Hopkins.
We loved this cabana. Super clean. Very helpful owners and employees on site. Best beach in all of Belize. This is a very remote village. fully equiped kitchen and excellent air conditioning. Large front and back porches.The site has bikes and can arrange golf carts plus dozens of tours.Book early as this place books fast!
I researched for a month to find this place and was not disappointed. Better than described and well located to explore Hopkins or entire country if you so choose. Annette and her team keep the place amazingly clean. Mirko has a large number of pre-researched and set up tours should you feel adventurous. Both were always available and proved an invaluable source of local information.
New brand name appliances and a Sealy mattress.
We loved the deck and often found ourselves snacking there and enjoying the day. Local miles long unbroken beach - truly steps away - was amazing and we swam their daily.
We wanted for nothing during our 32 day Hopkins stay (15 here in the North Cabana) and We plan to return here as soon as our work will allow. Incredible value considering the high quality of the Cabana and property.
We stayed at the Latitude 17 north cabana for a full month.
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.
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.
Gorgeous rental property. Accessible to town, beach, grocery stores and restaraunts. Clean and well stocked. Property Managers, Mirko and Annette are friendly, helpful and available to use as a resource. They know the town and the available tours, use them as a resource/
