Tasty pizza and a great atmosphere! Right on the beach! Great place for families or couples. Friendly folks - great place to meet the locals and just hang out, maybe even get in on some volleyball too!

I love me some rice and beans, but after a few days in Hopkins I was pretty thrilled to sink my teeth into some really good PIZZA. We were lucky to find the place the night before the owner went on vacation for the month - many places tend to close down in September. Great drumming, cold Belikin and really,... More

A great spot for a drink, pizza and a good time. This is a place you would only find on a caribean island. A small spot that is not to be missed if in the area and hoping for a few drinks and some music.

This little spot is tucked away on the northern side of Hopkins and is a total gem. Look for their sign - a street sign with a slice of pizza on the top instead. It's a little tough to find but worth the effort. The pizza was delicious - my favorite was the bbq chicken pizza. They have a great... More

A visit to Hopkins would not be complete without a Tuesday night pop in at Driftwood! It is the ultimate mix of local characters and musicians and guest travelers, the locals are very engaging and entertaining! Best music and dancing you will experience! Beautiful spot on the beach, I will def try their famous pizza next time! can't wait to... More

I recommend stopping by on Tuesdays. The pizza was amazing and the local music was great! The drink prices were very cheap compared to the resort we stayed at.

Had so much fun at the open mic night. Good happy hour wings and tacos. We spent a little more than we wanted once happy hour ended on beers, but the prices are on par for the area.

My grandmother LOVES pizza, so when celebrating her 86-year birthday in Hopkins, we HAD to go to Driftwood. :) The owner/manager, Denise, was wonderful to our ten-person family. She responded promptly to my email inquiry, reserved tables for us, and even arranged for a birthday cake from a local pastry chef. My grandmother, mom, and I shared a vegetable pizza... More

Great pizza, fabulous live music, friendly and entertaining host, beautiful dog and great cocktails - what's not to love? The pizzas are a bit on the pricey side (but getting quality ingredients into Belize is an expensive business) so I wouldn't eat pizza here ever day but they do have other good options that are as cheap as everywhere else...

This pace was the place to be Tuesday night. There was a local drumming group that played great music and socialized with the guests. The pizza was great and really hit the spot after a day filled with sun and adventure. The drinks were also great!
