Highlight of our Belize Vacation

We spent 10 days in Belize, with stops at different regions of the country. Our stay in Hopkins Bay was our beach destination for three nights, and it was the highlight of our trip. We had a two bedroom, two bath house all to ourselves with a gorgeous beach view. The beach itself is nice and clean, with shallow water that you can wade out more than 50 yards before it gets chest-deep. The drive to the property is a bit rustic, but once you enter the property, it is all top shelf. The quality of the rooms was excellent, modern and updated. We had a full kitchen, dining area, living area, and the two bedrooms with king beds. Only complaint is the second bedroom didn't have a TV, but we managed without it just fine (there was a TV in the living area and master bedroom). The restaurant on-site served limited selections that were all fantastic. It's not a huge menu (and honestly, they need to print more of them as they always seemed to be low on menus!) but every meal we ate there was excellent. We had our two sons with us (ages 12 and 14) and both found something they truly enjoyed on the menu. There are nearby restaurant options in Hopkins, too, that are equally as good, so you can take a quick bike ride or drive for more food options. The staff were all courteous, friendly, and helpful. There are not a lot of things to do in Hopkins village, but driving to Placencia is a quick, easy drive and the Resort offers several excursions to meet your adventurous needs. Wifi in each villa was excellent comparatively to other regions of Belize, and having a wifi router dedicated to each villa helps too... We would definitely come back to Hopkins Bay Resort, and highly recommend it for couples or families.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Driftwood restaurant is about 3/4 of a mile from the property and offers excellent local food, a great thin pizza, and local Garafuna dances and entertainment in a casual environment. It sits right on the beach, is very non-descript but has volleyball, horseshoes, and other games to play in the sand. Indoor and outdoor seating offered. Highly recommend having a meal here, dinner ideally, outside on the picnic tables.

Great staff, good location, missing on the little things

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay overall. The hired staff was super friendly and the grounds were beautiful and the room was very spacious. However for the price we paid, I would say it was a poor value. Though we had a partial ocean view the room was described as ocean front at booking. We were in the back end of the loop of buildings. The bottled water was not replaced each day and one replaced bottle had an insect in it. There was missing hardware in the bathroom however the hanging brackets were still in place. There were unpatched holes in the wall. The safe didn't have directions on how to reset the code and we ended up locking our stuff in the safe with no code. Another night the battery cover fell off inside the safe. On both occasions the owner came to unlock the safe and seemed agitated by having to help us. It had a great location in Hopkins but not much to do in Hopkins and the construction on Hopkins Rd was a pain. We enjoyed our 4 nights in San Pedro more and loved our day trip to Placencia. For $200+/night they just need to improve on the little things.

Hopkins Bay Belize

Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. If we asked for something, it was brought to us in less than five minutes. The villas were nice. Ocean view from every room. The town of Hopkins was not as we expected...we were on the north side....go to the south side by the Sittee Marina and there are a few restuarants/hotels. Of course the weather was great...it was windy however, every day.

Great hotel and staff except for location

This hotel is located primarily by itself on the opposite end away from himanassi and jaguar reef. This makes it secluded and quiet but still a 10 minute drive to reach the more commercialized areas. Many many potholes and crater sized holes dot the unpaved road towards Hopkins bay belize. There is also a small cemetery located near the hotel. Driving can be hazardous between the stray dogs, people walking by and trying to avoid the huge craters in the roadway. Rent a 4wd SUV. That being said, the hotel is beautiful and the staff very kind and caring. We had a second floor room with elevated ceiling and outdoor balcony. This rooms are fantastic compared to jaguar reef. The bar and restaurant serves amazing food (conch fritters!) and the bartender makes great drinks as well. I would most likely stay at this hotel again in the future.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If renting a vehicle, get their insurance as there are many hazards on the road driving in belize. It'll also save you some money and time compared to paying for the full tour prices offered by the different hotels.

Truly an experience!

My husband and I booked this trip one day before we left we just needed a quick getaway. The hotel is approx 2 1/2 hours from the airport, be prepared to rent a car ($500 wk) or plan ahead for hotel transportation ($275 each way) it's fairly easy to drive in Belize but there are very little road signs. The hotel is surrounded by poverty, the area has not been Americanized and its unsure if the village people are accepting of our existence. The hotel is in fairly good shape nothing to knock your socks off but you have an ocean view, although the ocean is dirty in front of the resort due to a river being dumped into the ocean close by. The 1 reason I will probably never go back to Hopkins Bay is Sand Fleas these pesky little things are beyond disgusting and it seems the entire island is infested with them when you have to check the toilet seat for sand fleas the vacation becomes less desirable, the hotel rooms are also infested I found the little fleas in the bed a couple times, the bathroom the entire trip and if you want to stare at the floor long enough it will start moving. My husband didn't really mind the fleas and has already talked about going back, the rolling hills of rain forest, the Mayan ruins, cave tubbing, zip lining and other adventures are worth the experience.

Great accommodations, staff needs work

Our one bedroom villa was gorgeous and very comfortable. We were there the last week before they close for renovations, and most of the staff seemed to be distracted. A lot were on laptops at the bars, and ignored us while they finished up their conversations. We constantly were treated like we were bugging someone when asking for drinks or towels. Paul was amazing and took us on great tours, super nice guy and the saving grace of this hotel.

Mom and daughter get-away

Small resort, only 38 rooms/villas, which is what we wanted. No on-site extra activities but easy access to local tours. If you are looking for a busy place, this resort and village are not it. If you want a quiet get-away with super friendly staff and locals that love to smile and greet you, come here. Also understand that is in not Mexico or another destination country that has all the Western amenities, WiFi was sporadic and slow sometimes, village restaurants may have a local dog or chicken walk through the open air seating and the markets have limited items ... no Wal-Mart or Starbucks in this country (thank god). But the snorkeling at the 2nd largest reef in the world was absolutely AMAZING!! Our masseuse who provided the massages on the beach was professional and you can ride the resorts bikes into town and not lock them up.
