The Real Belize! I arrived in Hopkins and was looking for a place that represented the real Belize and all that it has to offer. Stayed at a hostel before this place for a few days and decided to search on for another place that I could stay a little bit longer at, and at the same time learn what... More

We stayed in the cabana for a night. We got to our room to find rat droppings littering our bed sheet. We were told by a very high owner that two people had spent the night and she claims that she had just washed their sheets. She also said they ran away at 5 am. We found out why. We... More

Kismet Inn is not for those who need to have an uptown hotel experience. Kismet is an eclectic artsy kind of a place with lots of eye candy. Painted in refreshing bright colors and well maintained. There is always cleanup, and maintenance going on behind the scenes. The sheets are clean, the bathrooms are clean. Even when things are not... More

After slogging through the Guatemalan and Belizean Jungle for a couple of weeks - we settled into the welcome beachfront of the Kismet Inn. What a blessed relief to be sitting on the beach wrapped in the gentle caress of the breezes off of the Caribbean Sea. Our host, Tricia, is as cool as they come - definitely quirky and... More

This is a hard one to review, and I've reviewed quite a few I may say... We took a little cabana right on the beach... Closer to the water, we would have swam all night! Tricia is very nice and quite the free spirit to say the least. The room itself is semi-clean, the sheets and towel were fresh but... More

If you are on a tight budget this place could be classed as eccentric, for everyone else its very weird and will stay as an experience to talk about. Would I recommend you stay or eat ? really depends on your budget and if you enjoy the eccentrics of this world

The Kismet Inn is an awesome and unique little place at the end of Hopkins Beach that has an amazing beach front view and quaint little set up of rooms and cool spots to chill out on the beach. On our first night we ran into Trish, the owner, who accommodated us with an amazing dinner even after arriving late... More

This place is like home. There are always new and friendly people that stay there. Tricia is a great cook , and you must ask her to make her home made pizza. You are right on the beach with many chairs and hammocks. Once you stay here you will want to return again.

This place is advertised all over town but is a really far walk down the road. Trish is nice but I think she's high most of the time. The rooms on the beach level looked like dungeons, so dark and musty. We stayed in the dorm room, also dark and dingy, not clean, had screens with holes. The place didn't... More

There is a rare retro motif resort nuzzled on the spectacular beaches at the north end of Hopkins Village. Its name is Kismet Inn and it is run by the wild and wooly businesswoman Tricia Wipfler. Kismet Inn is a psychedelic smorgasbord of hippie commune architecture, pastiche Peter Max flower-child wall murals, found object environmental art pieces reminiscent of the... More
