Hopkins bay resort is a beatiful resort with all the amenities you need to have an excellent stay. It is only probably one of the only places with a clean beach in the hopkins/placencia area due to the sargasm, you can tell they clean the beach everyday to keep the sargasm out of the water and prevent the bad smell....

A beautiful resort set in the quiet town of Hopkins. This resort felt secure and was ultra-relaxing. The views of the ocean and beachside pool are excellent. The staff are very friendly, the accommodation is good quality and the food was very good too. We were not informed that the Villa was split into 2 sections, which I found a... More

We took our family vacation to Belize this summer. Hopkins Bay resort is a wonderful location. Great staff, awesome rooms, and fun activites. Everyone that enjoys snorkeling needs to go to Belize and head out to the reef. The town of Hopkins does not have much to do, but the people are very friendly adn welcoming.

Greetings, Thanks for your kind review. We do feel like a hidden gem at times as we’re neatly tucked away on the north end of the village. The snorkeling in Belize is a definite must as there is a myriad of fish and corals to feast one’s eyes on. The village is pretty laid back with many cultural activities: cooking... More

Beautiful ocean front resort. Clean beach area with free kayaks available. Resort is located at the end of the village of Hopkins(near a cemetary) so having a car was nice for us to get around the village as there are so many deep pot holes on the road there was no way my 6 yr old could have ridden a...

Hi There, We are thrilled to know that you enjoyed the property and our off-the-beaten-path location. The rugged streets in the village are adventures in its self; nonetheless, it’s great to know that you still got the chance to explore the 2-mile village in a car. Our kid friendly pools are great for the entire family to enjoy and our... More

We visited the Hopkins Bay Resort for 4 nights. Upon arrival were warmly greeted by Stanley, who gave us a personal tour of the resort and brought us to the Rhum Shack (restaurant/bar) for a welcome drink. This resort was completely personalized to anything we requested....the staff greeted us each meal and had wonderful recommendations of things to do locally.... More
