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!

GF and I ventured from the resort to check out drum night (Tuesday's) at Driftwood. The atmosphere was great as all the tables inside were packed and ready to start before 7 pm. Drumming started a little late, but it was well worth it. Group started slow to get everyone in the mood and gradually picked up the pace throughout... More

This is one of two pizza places in Hopkins. Each has their own advantages, but Driftwood is on a beautiful beach and has a cozy little bar. The pizza is stone oven fired and made by hand. It is flavored very well and has many choices of toppings. Marvin is a helpful and knowledgeable bartender and keeps Driftwood running just... More
