A very friendly welcome, we stayed in a pretty beach bungalow which was very comfy with good AC and hot shower (although the tiles were a bit old and tired) and free cold drinking water. Beach and grounds were beautifully maintained and the pool with pool bar was lovely. We borrowed bikes and kayaks which were both great. Sadly we... More

I just came back from visiting Jaguar Reef. I was so pleased with the staff, great food, great service, and cleaniness of the accomodations and grounds. On the way there, our Jeep broke down. Within half an hour the managing director had someone meet us on the side of the highway and bring us down to the resort. Instead of... More

We chose Jaguar Reef Lodge because of it's central location in the country and it's reasonable price. We traveled in early June at the beginning of the rainy season which explains partly the lower price and the resort seemed not totally booked out which we did not mind. Together with it's sister resort next door it might have only about... More

Everything about Jaguar Reef Lodge was balm for the weary soul, from the welcoming rum punch, to the friendly and helpful staff: beach groomers, bartenders, management, drivers, housekeeping, all warm & welcoming. Jaguar Reef combines laid-back and luxurious in a thoroughly satisfying way. Chalets/rooms are cool, pleasant, and well-equipped. The setting is superb: looking onto the ocean, coconut palms on...

Stayed here a number of times - and I'll leave out the details - but it's been exceptional to just OK. It's under new management by some of the best people in Hopkins (Maureen's mom) and this is great news. Looking forward to going back to the Jag! It will be excellent, folks. This is now the place to visit... More

My first impression of the complex was breath taking. the resort sits right on the beach and the water is beautiful. The staff cleans up the beach relentlessly and is curtious and nice. We enjoyed the bartender Keith very much. He has a nice sense of humor and loads of knowledge about Belize he shared with us. What we did... More

I booked Jaguar Reef for the second half of my Belize vacation. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The resort itself was great- very nice ocean front cabanas, spacious restaurant (also ocean-front), and a nice pool area with a swim-up bar. My only disappointment, was the infrequent dive trips leaving from Hopkins. If you are planning to dive, there... More

I was happy to hear that the rooms are scheduled to be remodeled this September. My husband and I just stayed here last week for our 7th wedding anniversary. We did a jungle/beach package and stayed at Sleeping Giant first, which was amazing. We had an ocean front cabana. The deck was awesome with chairs and a hammock. We had... More

We chose Hopkins as our beach place to go because it had great reviews, and it just seemed a little less touristy and a little bit different. In terms of the place that Jaguar Reef is located, it's great! However, for an overall experience, I would choose somewhere else to stay. We stayed in the Beach view Cabanas, and it... More

My husband and I spent 7 nights at Jaguar Reef in June 2014 for our honeymoon. It was a perfect spot for a honeymoon. There were many many couples we met that were also there on their honeymoon and seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. We had a beachfront Cabana and it was wonderful to wake up and see... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The enchanting waters and lush landscapes of Belize create a land of rugged adventure, romantic isolationism, and natural coexistence. Verdant rainforests house thousands of species of wildlife and hide ancient Mayan ruins within their depths. The intricate coral reef systems just offshore are renowned for marine diversity and provide some of the best environments for underwater exploration. Taking full advantage of the adventure potential of this idyllic destination, Jaguar Reef Lodge incorporates the comfort of exceptional accommodations into the beauty of its natural surroundings. ... more   less
