Hopkins Bay Belize is located at the north end of Hopkins which is still somewhat untouched by tourism. The facilities are great and the Rum Shack is a real asset. My son wanted to eat there all the time - for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was always delicious! The staff at Hopkins Bay was really terrific - they were... More

We had such a great time, we stayed an extra day. Kids did not want to leave. Everything is so relaxing and beautifully done -- the rooms, the verandas, the restaurant, the bar, the pools, the walkways, the beachfront. It's paradise.

After flying into BZE and taking the adventurous roadtrip to Hopkins, we were greeted by a bright, warm smile from Velene, who waited for us late into the night to check-in. She escorted us to our villa and ensured we were comfortable. Each villa is perfectly located and well equipped with the essentials and amenities (blow dryer, coffee maker, fridge,... More

I would recommend Hopkins Bay resort! Awesome breakfast and the dinner at the Rumm Shack was very good. They had great suggestions for excursions. We enjoyed our stay. The village is close and has some good restraints too

Our honeymoon at Hopkins Bay was nothing short of amazing. Every single person working for the resort was an absolute delight. From the bay staff, servers in the restaurant, receptionists, cleaning lady to the tour guides in service of the resort. The room was great.

We arrived on June 13th. We flew into Belize City and rented a car and drove to Hopkins. I would recommend making this trip during the day since a lot of road signs and down or not marked. The roads to Hopkins are decent. Once on Hummingbird Highway we stopped at Over the Top Bar/Restaurant. The food was home made... More

Very nice place to stay in Hopkins. It is a bit pricey but the rooms are very nice and clean as well as comfortable. Stayed in June, and the sand flies were horrific; so be prepared. If it is your first time in Hopkins, you will love it.

Hi There, Thank you for the review. We are pleased to know that you were able to enjoy the cleanliness and comfort of our rooms. Indeed the sand-flies can be nuisances when there is no breeze but it is our hope that the complimentary organic repellent in the room was able to help. All the best in future travels. More
