On my 3rd return to trip to Hopkins, I returned to Parrot Cove Lodge and was greeted like an old friend. Chef Rob welcomed me with enthusiasm and made some last minute accommodations for me since I showed up a day early than my reservation. This is a great place to base a dive trip from since the boat can pick you up from the property's dock. Chef Rob had breakfast ready in plenty of time for us to be on our dive boat and off for the day. Be sure to spend some time with King, the bartender, in the evenings. You can't find a nicer person with a history and heart that is all about Hopkins!
For the most part all was wonderful. Great food, good service, owners were very helpful, just needed a place in the shower to put soap and shampoo. A few potholes getting there, but hey, it's Belize. Enjoyed my stay.
We unexpectedly arrived in Hopkins one day early and Chef Rob was very accommodating. The staff at Parrot Cove are VERY friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. We are SCUBA divers and every morning the staff/Chef Rob ensured we had breakfast before we had to take off in the morning. The rooms were clean and elegant looking. We stayed 3 nights and nothing was too much trouble. King was awesome recommending local spots to eat and a great conversation. After leaving I feel like I have new friends, we will definitely go back to Parrot Cove.
Beautiful little hotel. Chef Rob, his wife, King (the bartender) and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Very clean, good sized rooms. Breakfast was included and served to match our schedule. Definitely a gem!
We stayed five nights at the Parrot Cove Lodge. Overall, it was a very good stay, but there were a few things that could have made it better. The pros: the staff was excellent. People were friendly and helpful. We stayed in a room on the second floor, overlooking the beach and ocean. The balcony was nice, with a table and chairs and a hammock. Facing the East, we got to see the sunrise (although for late risers, there are shades to block the sun). The room overall had a very upscale look, there were fresh flowers on the bed and in the bathroom, a lovely touch. Even though it was the slow season and the hotel was sparsely populated, the staff were still attentive, the beach was raked, the pool was attended to, etc. Breakfast was included in our stay, and it was always prompt and delicious. We had to leave early in the morning for a couple of events, and the staff packed us a breakfast to take on the road. While we were there, one of the two restaurants on site was closed. The only dining option was Love on the Rocks, and while I found the food decent, I felt like the concept (cooking at your table on a heated stone) was a novelty, and not something we'd want to do again, so we only ate in the restaurant once. The room, while lovely, could have been more functional. Our room had two beds, a table with four chairs, two bedside tables, and a sofa table along the wall. There was a large closet with a safe (which didn't work) and a mini fridge. There was a shelf and a clothes rod with three hangers. No bureau, and the shelf was far too small to hold all our clothing. We ended up using the second bed to organize our clothes. There was a hook just inside the door where we could hang our beach towel, but it would have been nice to have some hooks in the shower for wet, dripping bathing suits. The shower had two shower heads and was lovely, but there was no storage, no shelf or spot to put our soap and shampoo. Even something stuck on the wall with suction cups would have been handy. There were two hammocks on the beach, and one of them had been ripped and badly repaired. The light outside our room was flickering when we got there, but someone had put the light on in the room next to ours, so we could see. When I mentioned to someone that the light was out, they replaced the bulb the same day, and turned off the light in the room next door (which was vacant). So they were attentive, but turning on the light in the room next to ours made me think that they knew our light was defective, so why didn't they just replace the bulb before I mentioned it? Lastly, there are no phones in the room, and the front desk is staffed during the day. There is security during the night, but with no phone in the room, and nobody at the front desk, how do you contact them if you need them? We didn't need them, it was very quiet at night, but it certainly crossed my mind. The owner was on site several times, and she always stopped to ask if everything was ok and if we needed anything. We had a great time in Hopkins, and Parrot Cove Lodge was more than adequate for our needs. I would not discourage anyone from staying here, and we would stay here again. Just a few small changes would make this a great place to stay, instead of an adequate place to stay.
We had an awesome time at Parrot Cove. The good was great. Chef Rob was on vacation, but Mike and the other cooks and Tricia were great. Delicious! The pool was also great. he only issue was that our room was situated right in front of a group of palm trees, do we didn't have a great view of the sea. This wasn't a big deal for us, but it maybe very important to others. This was room 14.
Very good experience, a warm welcome, the hotel is very well kept, clean, refurbished. the restaurant is very good. The view over the river is magnificent. In short a real happiness. Congratulations to the team and the bosses
The restaurants and restaurant service at this hotel were top notch. We never had an empty glass on the table and our food was served in a timely fashion. The hotel staff had limited knowledge of their country's list of attractions and few choices for excursions. We made reservations for five people split into two rooms. Both rooms were to have two beds but when we arrived we found out that they had had a fire that burned half of the rooms of the hotel. They gave us the two rooms in our category (looking out on the pool) but only one room had two beds, they had to add a futon to the other room making it smaller and less comfortable to get around. Although, the rooms had refrigerators and bottled water for the guests. The air conditioners in each room were located on the wall and blew directly down onto the bed in each room. You had the choice to leave the air conditioner on and blow cold air on you all night long or you could turn it off for the night and wake up in a pool of your sweat. Either way you weren't getting much sleep in that bed. Lastly, one of the hotel amenities are the use of bikes to get into town, because the town is pretty far away. The bikes are rusty, old, and not well care for. When my sister and I took a pair of bikes out, one of the bike's tires had a crack in it, which slowly released the air in that tire until it was being ridden on a flat. The hotel attendant asked us to ride it back on the flat, and on the way back the seat of the other bike loosened so it was swiveling left and right. Unless they replace the bikes don't bother with them, it's safer to walk.
Loved it. Good value for the price. Our room was not upscale, but it was clean and comfortable. All the common areas were well appointed, classy, and clean. Pool was in great condition and water was very pleasant. Staff was exceptional, I asked three of them for help with my travels and they all offered so many helpful answers.
The parrot cove was trying to make customers pay for everything. They have a van for the lodge but it's only available at $75 US dollars. The owner was not very friendly and I did not feel he valued me as a customer, I would never stay there again.
