We stayed here for 3 nights in the big cabana. It was such an amazing place, the cabana was beautiful airy and clean and the view was gorgeous! Pam and Ollie were such great hosts and the bar makes excellent cocktails. We would definitely highly recommend this to other travellers!

This lovely little cabana on the beach was our little haven for two nights. For the price we couldn't have asked for more, as it's equipped with a fridge and a coffee maker.we seem to have arrived in Hopkins at a bad time, too quiet and very stormy. The sea was unswimmable and the beach was covered in seaweed and... More

It's the owners of the Windschief that make it such an amazing place to stay! Pam and Ollie and their family are amazing people. Pam's Dad Levi and his 1st mate Rudy are superb expert guides and really make any excursion with them extra special. The fishing/snorkelling shore lunch trip as well as the night time biolumiuous River tour are... More

We loved the Windschief, the beachfront cabanas were perfect, clean & cozy, just what we wanted. Our hosts, Ollie & Pamela were more than accommodating, helpful & friendly. We were adequately warned that Friday night was a popular night with late night music & we enjoyed dancing & visiting with people we met throughout the week in Hopkins.

How different was my expectations from the website to reality:but not in a negative way,just different! . For the money the small cabana is superbly and thoughtfully furnished and immaculate clean. I thought it would be more rustic and basic! I also imagined the crowd at the bar to be more of a mixture of travellers but wasn't but thats... More

Took the bikes for a spin and thoroughly enjoyed Sunday funday around the... More

that is probably the best spot to spend your time in Hopkins village, ones you are there, time flys by and chillaxing is on the Menu. Btw. they also run an Beachbar and serve excellent affordeble food to. The cabanas are very clean and cosy.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 wonderful nights. The rooms have an amazing breeze being so close to the ocean as well as a nice fan so at no point did we need a/c while we there. Pam and Oliver were wonderful hosts who made us feel welcome and part of the family. The location of the bar... More

My boyfriend and I were backpacking through Belize and decided to find a nicer place to stay for a few nights to spend my birthday. After doing a little research, we found the Windschief Bar and Cabanas. At first arriving, we were slightly hesitant due to the cabanas modest surrounding. However, we decided to stay anyway. Boy, are we glad... More

I stayed two nights in the larger of the two cabanas, which would easily accomodate 3 - 4 people. Enjoyed every minute. This is not exactly a budget choice, but still excellent value for money at 45 USD, when measured against the regular Belizean pricing level. Fridge and coffee maker are nice touches. Direct beachside location, lively bar with good... More
