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. The good: - we had a 2 bedroom villa literally right on the beach for a very good price (around $400/night). Tons of space and wonderful... More

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.

When we first arrived, we were taken on a little tour around the grounds of the hotel. Each villa is beautiful, and no matter which villa you stay in, you will have a superb view of the ocean.

The resort is quite friendly and efficient, and the rooms are spectacular, especially as you get closer to the water. We loved the mix of the... More
