“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Louise is a extremely helpful and fantastic host. Cabanas are clean and have everything one need to have. The garden area is beautiful arranged and for people who likes birding it is good as well.
The location is not at the beach front, what is kind of a drawback, but in my opinion on caulker not a problem at all. Everything is easy accessible in walking distance but for the ones walking is not an option also bikes are included.

Room Tip: Take Cabana 3

All expectations were met and exceeded. A find to be sure!! Thanks to Louise, we had a wonderful, easy time on Caye Caulker--a tiny little drinking island with a diving problem. This location is convenient to restaurants and with the bikes a trip to the Split is no problem. Give it a 10 out of 10 for all aspects of our needs.

Maxhapan is located to the south of the island, a 10mins walk from the water taxi terminal. It's good to check prior to arrival the exact location (no need to take a taxi).
We got a very warm welcome from Louise, the owner of the cabanas. We immediately felt like at home. She provided us with valuable inputs about what to do on the island where to have a drink, where to snorkel, etc. - turned out to be all good advise.
The cabanas are located a bit remotely from the "center" of the island where most activity takes place, but they provide you with some bikes to move around Caye Caulker. No noise at all at night, rooms are decorated with taste, including AC unit (although a bit noisy) and very clean. Our room had a nice balcony with an hammock.
The common areas around the cabanas invite you to spend some time there chilling out and relaxing.
We spent only 3 nights at Maxhapan, but would have liked to stay longer. If we come back to Caye Caulker, this is the place were we would stay!

We stayed at Maxhapan for 5 nights while staying on Caye Caulker. Louise greeted us on arrival and advised us we could choose any of her 3 cabanas to stay in; we decided on the 2nd level.

This cabana had a balcony with hammock, two double beds, small fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, AC and shower. Louise provides bottled water daily for each guest & clean towels. If you want beach towels, she can also provide these for a small fee. There are bikes available, which are really handy to get around the island quickly, and free wi-fi. A better wi-fi connection can be found in the communal areas, but we could access it from our balcony too.

Louise provided some suggestions for places to eat & reputable snorkel companies. We would recommend eating at Terry's Grill & Pasta Per Casa - we ate at both of these places twice during our stay. Amor y Cafe is good for breakfast too - the grilled cheese & pineapple sandwich a favourite!

Definitely check out Maxhapan to stay if you visit Caye Caulker.

My wife and I have stayed here twice - and we have no plans to stay anywhere else on Caye Caulker! Super clean, very comfortable beds, free bikes to use, and excellent value. When we visit Caye Caulker again, we will definitely first see if there is availability here!

My friends and I stayed 3 nights at Maxhapan Cabanas and I'm very glad we picked this location. I agree with previous posters - Louise is fabulous!! She is one of the most pleasant people I've met when traveling, gives great guidance and her rooms are spotless! She provides you with bikes to use while on Caye Caulker, cleans the room daily and the towels provided were the softest I felt the whole trip. The rooms, although simple, were very comfortable. There is A/C in the rooms, a nice shower, a small refrigerator for your use, and she provides bottled water daily. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting there. Highly recommended!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 4 nights (extended from 2 as we loved both Caye Caulker and Maxhapan). Louise was a great host and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was cleaned to a high standard every day. She provides you with free bikes which are ideal for travelling around the island. The best accommodation we saw on the island, it deserves to be number 1,
