Upscale resort in a funky town Hopkins Bay Resort is a wonderfully luxurious oasis with huge grand two-bedroom villas arranged in an M with the bottom facing the sea. Each villa has a large single room positioned on the second floor. The two bedroom villas are truly spacious, and beautifully appointed with all the amenities , marble counters, and varnished...

We had to fly 15 min. in a tiny plane from Belize airport to Hopkins which was kind of cool. Then take a beaten old 91 Nissan taxi with a shattered windshield 45 minutes to the resort. We never rode in anything newer than that and nearly every driver would stop and talk to someone they knew along the drive.... More

We visited Hopkins Bay during the off-peak season...June. The weather was beautiful, the resort was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful villas, very clean and comfortable. The staff was beyond accommodating and very customer service oriented. The beachside bar was great and the onsite beach restaurant's (Rhum shack) food was wonderful. They served both local dishes and American style dishes. The beaches were... More

Wonderful resort and fantastic location. Clean and spacious. Delicious food and great staff. Amazing infinity pool and gorgeous beach. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hopkins village is great to visit and if you get a chance take in the local culture - those drums and drummers are spectacular.

Here as part of wider group of colleagues. Place is fairly well kept, clean, quiet and tucked away in northern Hopkins. Staff is friendly and were always willing to accommodate, didn't feel like a business trip at all. The food wasn't all that spectacular but this is perhaps due to the fact that we had selected it as a part... More

We had booked a 5 night stay in a cabana on the beach, but it didn't meet our expectations and after a night of noise and filthy sheets we checked out and went looking for somewhere else. I'm so glad we found Hopkins Bay Resort. Even though we didn't have a reservation and the resort was pretty booked, we were... More

This resort is a hidden gem in a small remote village; friendly, well maintained and clean. With two pools, on-site restaurant, bar, games, kayaking, and breath taking ocean views there's plenty to do. It's also a short walk to local restaurants or drive to other attractions. They are doing construction on the main road leading into to Hopkins and it... More

On the spur of the moment, we drove to Hopkins from Stann's Creek area to visit the beach and spent 3 nights here. The second floor loft room was huge, clean, bright, cool and comfortable. Free Internet is a plus if you need to keep in touch. Breakfast was included and the food was good, lots of it and we... More

We stayed at Hopkins Bay in late March. I'm glad I had read some reviews, because they were spot on. The road into the resort looks dicey, but the place was beautiful. We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite, which was enormous, with a full kitchen. The beds were comfy, and we had a view of one of the... More
