My wife and I are on a one week vacation in Belize. We are touring around the country. Today we pulled into the little town of Hopkins looking for a bite to eat on the waterfront. We happened onto the Kismet Inn. What a great experience! The owner, Trishia, greeted us graciously and then prepared for us a tasty meal...including... More

I spent 2 months at Kismit Inn and will always treasure the experience. When I first arrived Thrish (the owner ) said I reminded her of some guy that came to stay for a few days and ended up living there for a few years. I became a family member almost at once. Keys are left in the kitchen door... More

This place is cute and quirky..Trish the owner is friendly and helpful and although I didnt eat with her, i have heard her cooking is great. As the hostel was quiet, I was upgraded to a better room for the same prcie - such welcoming and kind service. Yes there are (friendly) dogs and there are noisy cockrells but theres... More

Kismet Inn is breezy and leisurely comfortable. Food is excellent and made fresh daily. A variety of breads are homemade and tasty. The rooms are uniquely done up, Island style. The proprietor is friendly and fun, she makes you feel at home. Precious times are meal time when all guests have a chance to meet and greet each other and... More

On two different occasions people had there bungalows broken into and there valuables stolen. Someone slashed a hole in our tent WHILE WE WERE IN IT and tried to steal our stuff. She then asked if she should get a night watchman and we said she should get more lights for the property to which she replied, " that will... More

Trisha's little place is beautiful! You're not getting a five Star resort but if you go to Hopkins that's hopefully not what you're looking for. I arrived late after a long travel day and was sat down at the table with the rest of the "family" to enjoy a lovely home cooked dinner. The place is right on the beach... More

If you are looking for laid back, on the beach with a good swimming place, then this is the place for you. For the budget conscience, I would recommend the dorm room which has 3 single beds and 2 separate rooms with a double bed each all sharing a common toilet and sink. The showers are cold and separate. The... More

wow, this place is horrible. the management, sanitation, book keeping, meals, etc. really set the bar low. virtually any other lodging in Belize will shine compared to the Kismet Inn. the owner is very difficult to deal with and regrettably, my friends in the village say she has issues with drug addiction. the Inn is located at the north end...

A mixed review here, it is a quirky little place.I can see why some arty type people might enjoy this. I however found the place dirty and smelly. There was a mouse in our room and a toad in the bathroom. The rooster crowed all night not just in the morning so I couldn't sleep. The owner is very helpful... More

We stayed here by chance as we had arrived two days earlier into Hopkins than planned. Our prebooked place full : we followed the rainbow signs and found a patch of gold. True it wont be to everyone's taste however the eclectic, artsy , upcycled , recycled style suits us and we loved our two nights there. Tricia is a... More
