My wife and I stayed at Latitude 17 (the north cabana) for almost three weeks this June (2015). We spent much of our time in Hopkins itself, but used this great place as a home base for several day trips to other parts of Belize (such as Placencia, Punta Gorda, San Ignacio, and the numerous ruins and preserves in the area).
We could not have asked for more in this one bedroom cabana. It was clean and modern with a well equipped kitchen and a great front porch. We felt comfortable cooking in a meal here and there when we wanted to. The location was great to get a real feeling of what a slower-paced life is like in Belize. Grocery stores, fruit / vegetable stands, restaurants, tour outfitters, and more were all within a couple blocks of the place. It is not on the beach itself, but the beach is only a block away when you want that.
The cabana and the location are made even better by the property manager named Emma. She has lived in Hopkins for many years and knows the place and the people personally. She runs and owns a motorcycle / dune buggy / golf cart / etc. rental shop on the same property so she can help you with those activities if you want (but we never felt any pressure to do so). That also means she is available everyday with questions you may have, items you may need replenishing in your place, etc. Having Emma there made our stay even more convenient ... plus she is a kind hearted and fun person!
We have already, and will continue to, refer people to Emma and this great location.
