Cabana Latitude 17, Hopkins, Belize

  • 5 of 5

I look forward to returning to Hopkins, Belize and since my stay at the Latitude 17 Cabana from 1 - 15 June 2016, I will be wanting to stay with Mirko and Annett.

Mirko and Annett are both friendly, available, outgoing people, always willing to help with any question or need. The cabana and the property were meticulously cared for beautiful properties.

The cabana was very well furnished with anything needed for a party of four to prepare and enjoy a complete meal, the bed was very clean and comfortable and my son said the futon slept great. The pictures of the property in their ads prepared me for the cabana and I was not disappointed.

The weather was hot the first two weeks in June and the air conditioning kept the cabana perfectly cool.

I rented a golf cart from Mirko and Annett for ten days, the golf cart operated perfectly and allowed me to really become familiar with the layout of Hopkins.

Both Mirko and Annett recommended several places to eat and they were all wonderful, I enjoyed several breakfasts at the Thong across the street from the cabana.

I would definately stay with Mirko and Annett if I am ever in Hopkins, Belize again. Hopefully I will be.

Great Value in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The property managers were attendant to every detail of our visit, including accommodating a weather related travel delay. The customer service they offered was outstanding. They offered advice on local services , sites and recreational opportunities, booking agent service for travel and tours, and were genuinely friendly and helpful. The property itself was beautifully maintained. We enjoyed the proximity to village life and the sights and sounds of the real Belize.

Bicycles!

  • 5 of 5

Do you want to stay in an excellent home base for many Belizean adventures? Do you want to be immersed in Hopkins daily life? Do you want a large clean cabana in which to plan said adventures? Do you desire lovely gratis bicycles to ride around town? Do you yearn for local dogs to sprawl on the porch? (there is a gate, so they must be invited; velvet rope situation here) Do you want friendly helpful managers and property owner? If you do, Latitude 17 is perfect for you. If you don't, well, there is no hope for you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review about Latitude 17 Cabana and the Village of Hopkins. Kids are not playing basketball thru the night, they go to school the next morning! You mabye done a better research before you book a place, you are in the village and you will experience the village! Maybe you are more a resort-type of tourist! Thanks, your Latitude 17 Team

Cabana in Hopkins

  • 4 of 5

I was very happy with my stay. For the most part, all our needs were met. There is really only one thing that I would change if I were renting this unit to people. Either include air conditioning in the cost of the unit or provide a second fan. We used both the bedroom and living room as sleeping areas, and only one of us had a fan. Also, the fan was rather loud. There was also a very loud rooster out back, but I guess there is very little that can be done about that. The noise from the fan was actually a good thing in this regard, as it drown out the bird. Otherwise, the stay was great. I did have one awkward encounter with the lady below our unit who rented motor bikes. I had originally rented the unit from her, but I gather she was fired from the position. I was not aware of this and simply went to ask what she would recommend in the area for visitors. There was a strange pause and she said she thought it was inappropriate of me to be asking her this when she was fired from the job. I really was not aware of any of this drama, but I did stumble into it. Mirko was a good host. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your extensive and exciting review about Latitude 17 Cabana and the Village of Hopkins. The time you booked the place there was no A/C included, we changed that already, A/C is now included! We took over the managment beginning of December and informed you that the management is changed! We also fixed the ceiling fans and we made them lower! Hopefully you found time to enjoy the hammocks. Should your travel plans bring you back to Belize we would love to have you as a returning guest. Thanks, your Latitude 17 Team
