Beautiful location with breathtaking views! But very remote! The grounds were well maintained and the villa we stayed in was very nice. Had a few maintenance problems while we were there but they were taken care of right away. Our room had a gorgeous view of the pool and the beach; but, it was upstairs which meant going up and...

My husband and I went to Belize for the first time in November 2014. We stayed at Hopkins Bay Resort and loved it. The room was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The staff catered to every request. We had a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea, which was only a few steps from our room. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from... More

Beautiful property, villas were nicely constructed and only steps from the beach, grounds were well maintained. The kitchen was less than adequately equipped with only 1 fork, but offered a fridge, very basic pots and pans and a coffee maker. Cable TV was decent, but wifi was mostly useless. Probably the nicest resort in Hopkins but the location is not... More

Our location does lend itself to an off-the-beaten... More

The place is nice, can't complain about the rooms, although there's other places with similar flair for quite a bit cheaper. Not sure about the billing, despite repeated requests via email and repeated promises, from them, I never got an actual invoice. Maybe they had hidden charges they didn't want me to see, I don't know.

Maybe we are spoiled by Hawaii but we found that maintenance and amenities were lacking. First off, upon arrival in Hopkins (which was at night) we found it nearly impossible to find the resort... signage sucked. Only by perseverance were we able to get there. The roads are terrible!!! Bring a GPS. We know that the ocean and the weather... More

Hi There, Thank you for the detailed feedback. Admittedly, there are various ways to experience Belize, and in choosing Hopkins Bay Resort, you decided to stray from a cookie-cutter vacation. While we agree that the signage on the highway may be minimal and some parts of the road may be riddled by potholes, this too has become a part of... More

Hopkins Bay resort is beautiful and the people and service are even more beautiful. You can't go wrong here, all units face the ocean, the pool, restaurant and pool side bar are all really nice.

Thanks for the awesome review! We pride ourselves on being the consummate host while incorporating as much of the authentic local flare of the village onto our property as possible. The beachfront Rhum Shack Restaurant is a great chill spot and our Drum Bar is really nice indeed; those cozy corners of the resort offers every opportunity to mingle with... More

The property is extremely clean and has white sand beaches. They have volleyball on the beach just in front of the Rhum Shack Restaurant (an open air restaurant and bar). The staff were wonderful and the managers Shawn and Mandy were terrific. I definitely recommend this place in Hopkins. If you like outdoor activities, this is a great location.

Thank you for the nice review! Here at Hopkins Bay, we ensure that our beach is well-kept and maintained. Beach volleyball, bocce and bon fire nights are just a few onsite activities that we offer, while the village bicycle and kayak safari tours are two of our off-site favorites. Our staff is known to be quite accommodating and we do... More

Citrus grove and Mayan Mountains did not disappoint. The ride from Belize City international airport took about 2.5 hours. We got villa 18A, ample space for 2... More
