Maxhapan Cabanas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Been here three years in a row, and it's hard to think of a stay at Caulker without staying here. This place has everything we could ask for: tidy cabins, aircon if you need it, proximity to everything, free bikes to glide through the town, clothesline to dry swim suits, palapas and covered tables to enjoy the grounds, hammock on your cabin porch, fresh cocoanut water in the morning, and most of all Louise, the owner. This is a homey, professionally-run property held with generational pride by Louise and her family. This not a commercial experience -- you will feel at home while surrounded by the sound of village living each day and evening. We are so grateful to have found this place and hope to keep visiting here each year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Each has a stairs -- the lower rooms have fewer stairs.

This was a great place to stay and really captured the essence of Caye Caulker's laid back vibe. The cabins were very clean and smelled fresh. There was a wall air conditioner if needed but in February, the breezes and ceiling fan kept me comfortable at night. Louise, the owner, fusses over you as if you were one of her own. I was there alone and she really watched over me and made sure I was happy. The price was right too. I recommend this place.

Room Tip: There are only 5 units. I wouldn't have want to have been upstairs. Downstairs was great.

My boyfriend and i met at Maxhapan cabanas at the start of our Belize adventure. I booked three nights so that we could get our bearings and relax before heading to the mainland. Maxhapan delivered. I picked maxhapan because of the online reviews and because the owner, Louise, was so prompt and courteous in arranging our stay.

Once in caye caulker, I was not disappointed. The rooms were immaculate, the grounds were cleaned and raked everyday, and not a shell was out of place. Louise was always pleasant and informative. The only downside is that it's not on the beach. However, the location is away from the main drag, safe and quiet. The awesome grounds, immaculate cabins, and communal outdoor cabana/gathering area far surpass any of the accommodations on the beach. Use your complementary bikes to explore the town and the beach the head "home."

My wife and I visited Caye Caulker in January 2012 and had an amazing stay at Maxhapan Cabanas. Our host Louise and her husband were outstanding hosts and truly took the time to make us feel comfortable, welcome and appreciated. You can't go wrong with any of the 3 cabanas as they are all in excellent condition and well maintained. Our cabana had 2 large beds, hot + cold water, coffee maker, mini fridge, AC (not needed!), shower, fans, private front porch with hammock, free use of bicycles, cable TV, and more. The grounds of the property were also fantastic with lots of wildlife ( land crabs, lizards, birds, bats and other wildlife ). There is a nice large communal cabana for enjoying drinks, socializing and catching a nice evening breeze. The location is a block or two from the main area of Caye Caulker, which we actually preferred as it was nice and quiet but close to the action. There is are restaurants and a grocery store only one block away. Additionally its worth mentioning that I have never witnessed such a thorough house cleaning process, which was done everyday we were there. Rooms were clean and pristine! Nothing but good things to say about this place and our host Louise. Do yourself a favour and stay at Maxhapan!

We stayed at Maxhapan for 4 nights after being on the island of San Pedro. We were greeted by the lovely Louise who showed us our spotlessly clean room. It had all mod cons including AC/TV/Fridge and ceiling fan. Maxhapan itself is lovely, a large area to chill out and sunbathe and best of all it's so peaceful and quiet. 2 mins walk from the main street and restaurants yet in it's own little world.
The owner Louise was lovely and ever so helpful. She left us to our own devices but was around for any advice we wanted. Bonus things about the villas are you get free bikes to take around the island, plus Louise teaches an aerobics class each night which guests are welcome to join.
Maxhapan is such a gem of a place and is a must if you are coming to the island.It's an absolute bargain for what you get and I only wish we could have stayed longer. We had 6 very noisy nights on San Pedro and had money stolen from our room so Maxhapan was exactly the place we needed to recover and have our faith restored in people.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms and all amazing

the owner, louise, is the hardest worker i've ever seen! the cabanas were spotless, help was always available, and yet we had total privacy. free bikes with your reservation. not on the beach but on caye caulker it doesn't matter AT ALL. you'll see when you get there. a little noisy... lots of partying nearby, but still highly recommended.

We spent the last two nights of our honeymoon here. It was the perfect place to wind down a two+ week trip. Louise, the owner is very friendly and sweet. The free bikes were an added bonus. We stayed in the private cabana, which was spacious, very clean and updated - tile floors, air con and a mini refrigerator. The cabana has a great porch with chairs and a hammock - perfect for reading or sipping a glass of wine. Maxhapan is located off the beaten path, so it's pretty quiet. The grounds are very clean and safe.
