“Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Amongst the rustic village and small quaint resorts of Hopkins Village you can find this spectacular gem called Villa Verano. The villa is absolutely beautiful, private, and serene. The staff was wonderful and very helpful with all our arrangements. We were married on the beach. Mary and the staff turned our simple ceremony into the most wonderful romantic wedding anyone could dream of, ending the evening with the fine-dining cuisine prepared by Maureen. We were so grateful for all their efforts. After nine wonderful days we had to continue our journey through Belize. It was very hard to leave.

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Villa Verano for 8 nights in July 2013. Myself and 2
friends stayed in Courtyard 1 room which has a large king bed and 4 bunk beds. Every detail is accounted for, from embossed housecoats, homemade soaps, beautiful wood furniture, etc... The staff were all kind and eager to
take you windsurfing on the small trimaran. There are bikes available to go into
town, and kayaks and hammocks for use. The top
floor veranda has a giant hot
tub that heats up within minutes.

The manager, Mary is welcoming, kind and goes out of her way to help you
with anything you need.

We arrived in Belize on June 28th stayed in downtown Hopkins to experience the culture and people. After 5 nights we decided to move to the outskirts of Hopkins and stay at a resort. We met Mary at Maureen Restaurant the evening before and thought we would check it out. I am a Wedding Planner and thought this would be a great place to hold a wedding or retreat! Mary took us on a tour and the next thing I know we are -checking in- my husband and I and a honeymoon couple were the only guests on the property and we had a great time. The Almond View was our private retreat with a full wall of glass looking out to the sea and the staff Martin, Andrea and of course Mary were very thoughtful and helpful. We met the owners and spoke to them about their dreams and experiences building in Belize.... It was a pleasure and have now decided to also become residents of Belize and I hope to bring a few weddings to V. V. because its a great place to enjoy the sea, sun and its truly 'UnBelizable" thanks again! See you soon - we Will be back!

While on a two week trip in Belize we accidentally ended up at Villa Verano and man were we lucky! After our prior accommodations did not work out, we were referred to VV by another resort.

First their top notch service must be noted and commended. Mary, Andrea, and Martin all welcomed us with big smiles and made us feel right at home. We were fortunate to be the only guests there, but regardless of this were made to feel so VIP.

The Villa itself is so beautiful, decorated to the most lovely extremes, and well cared for. There is a hot tub up on the rooftop which is a beautiful place to enjoy the night sky with the sound of ocean waves. Our bed was so cozy, linens are top notch, and even the robes are to die for. Our bathroom, complete with a hot tub and rainfall shower, was so grand and luxurious it was as though we were at a 5 star hotel, maybe even better.

Although food is not an option here, we took Villa's bikes to nearby resorts for our meals. It's in a great quiet little neighborhood, just a short bike ride to Hopkins village.

This might not be the place for all travelers but if you are going with a group like a wedding or multi family crew, this is a beautiful home to settle in to. It's beautiful, quiet, and well cared for. And you will be spoiled!

Room Tip: We were in the Sea View room on the ground floor with easy access to the pool and beach.

I decided to have my wedding in Hopkins, and my family joined me. The villa is beautiful, and the service is even better. Mary and her staff are so helpful and think of every detail. I am so glad I decided to stay at Villa Verano and have my wedding there. The food that Mary's daughter, Maureen, serves is delicious, and my wedding reception was amazing. I highly recommend Villa Verano if you travel to Hopkins. Mary is the best. My family and I had the best experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

Taylor and Andrea we were very privileged to be able to share in your special day and assist in making it a memorable time for your family / friends in Belize. As a team (Maureen included) we thank you and wish you much happiness and love and see you on the anniversary or second honeymoon. Your wedding started as a storm as we had the roads flooded and yet you kept smiling, all that did not go the way it was planned you never lost faith. Thank you again for choosing Villa Verano and making memories in Hopkins

This is a stunning property, clearly built with a great deal of love and you can feel it when you stay there. The manager, Mary, is a wonderful hostess and ensures that every need or request is met with a smile. The level of comfort is incredibly high with so many details thoughtfully considered. The beds are huge and comfy. The views breathtaking. The jacuzzi sublime. The bathroom and shower as luxurious as you could ever hope for. Walking through the property is an experience in itself with fantastic artwork and architectural details that are just beautiful. Villa Verano is perfect for anyone who loves luxury.

My fiancé and I recently had the privilege of spending ten days in the Sea Grape Home at Villa Verano with a group of our close friends. I found the accommodation to be the perfect blend of luxurious amenities while still incorporating many aspects of the local culture. The versatile layout lends itself to couples, families, or large groups. Sea Grape boasts grand seating areas perfect for large social events as well as many serenely intimate nooks for those who wish to relax on their own. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable when it came to recommending tours and restaurants. From spending countless hours lounging between the pool and beach, to watching the sunset from the rooftop hot tub, this was truly an experience I will never forget. We had an amazing time and we’ll definitely be returning. If you’re planning a trip and are unsure of a destination, or you’ve already decided on Hopkins, Villa Verano is simply magical.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing!
