Writing this is a bit difficult, because I really did like the friendly staff at the resort... but I have to be honest: Beware of bed bugs in villa 7B. There was a review written by another traveler in December of 2014 re: villa 7B and it appears that the issue was never taken care of. Details of both pros,... More

We stayed here for the last two nights of our Honeymoon in early May 2015. After leaving the sleeping giant, we didn't expect anything could compare to luxury and beauty at all. Hopkins Bay was just as lovely, but different because it was on the beach and in a very quiet tiny little town. It was a perfect end to... More

Hi There, Thank you for allowing us to share in your Belize honeymoon experience. Gorgeous and secluded indeed; it is neatly tucked away on the north end of our small – two-mile long- village and is surely an escape from the bustle of everyday life. The beach amenities, friendly staff, good food, beautiful and spacious rooms only compliment this off-the-beaten-path... More

My Fiancee and I spent a week at the Hopkins Bay Resort and really enjoyed our time. We ate at the resort several times (breakfast was included in the price of the room and was delicious) and also spent a fair amount of time at the pool and beach. Things were relaxing and quiet.

We spent 4 nights at Hopkins Bay Resort last week as part of our spring break (spent 3 nights in the Cayo district/jungle earlier in the week). Our children are 7 and almost 11.

Beautiful resort! Very attentive staff. Great food and drinks. On the beach! Every room has an ocean view. Our visit was very personalized. It is located about 2 hours from the airport by car but worth the drive.
