“Im headed back soon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I had been to Costa Rica, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico within the last five years. In Costa Rica, it was all inclusive, and I was dissapointed. In the V.I. it was cush and predictably nice but very, very spendy. Same in Puerto Rico. I liked Caribbean Shores in Belize because it was small, affordable and not pretentious with the same ocean, beautiful beaches, reefs and jungles. Just a great place to stay! You can get to know the locals in Hopkins (appreciate their culture) and it's not dangerous, but gratifying.The beach, hot tub, pool and good restaurants are all there. Even good pizza! Many activities nearby: hike, bike, zip and ride horses. Snorkel or sunrise cruise on the Utopia is a definte reason to return. Trip into Dangriga is bumpy but enlighteing and humbling.

The hospitality at Caribbean Shores, food and comraderie (including the birds,dogs and iguanas) is also pretty sweet. I was hesitant to share the Turtle Room with the next occupant. Kind of thought it was mine for keeps. :) I couldn't wait to open the French Doors to my veranda every morning to smell the fresh coffee brewing..and here the birds..

I'll be back! Thanks Cindy and Joe! Dont work too hard. Luv Ya, Vivion

Cindy and Joe are totally committed to you having an exceptional vacation experience. They and the CBSBB staff always went the extra yard to accomodate any unique needs. The snorkel trip on the catamaran Utopia was better than our experience at the Great Barrier reef in Australia. You can't beat the Ziplining, Cave Tubing, and Mayan Ruins excursions for learning, fun, and personal challenge. The guides are supportive and encouraging to those who are daunted by doing things they never thought they would do; the nearby restaurants including Chef Rob offer memorable meals on the beach and sometimes had local dance/drumming for entertainment. The B&B itself is designed to be laid back, comfortable, and beach friendly. The town of Hopkins, its bumpy road, and first appearance is far from glitzy, but don't be deceived - there is smething real about the people who live there and the way they live life that you will miss when you leave. We are just grateful to Cindy and Joe and the people of Hopkins for hosting us.

Room Tip: Rooms are more cheery and homey than a resort style accomodation.

My wife & I along with my cousin & his wife had a terrific time at the Caribbean Shores B&B. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the pool was perfect and the upstairs breakfast area/bar was wonderful. The breakfast every morning was delicious. Cindy was very helpful with suggestions on where to go visit and what restaurants we should try in the area. We even did a one day snorkeling trip aboard their catamaran, the "Utopia", and it was fantastic.
Playing the bean bag (also known as the "Cornhole" game) tournament on Sunday night was a hoot!
We would highly recommend this B&B to all visitors to southern Belize.

Room Tip: Recommend a room away from the pool.

Mom and I stayed in the Iguana room right by the pool/jaccuzi. It was fabulous!!! Breakfast every morning was supremo. We did the day snorkel trip on the Utopia, a forty foot catamaran which had four bedrooms and two bathrooms. What a great experience, the food the drinks and the smorkeling were awesome!!! My mother is eighty and we got to check off one of her items on her bucket list. Cindy took us into the tropical Maya mountains to the longest zip line in Belize what a blast my Mom had. Thanks to Cindy and Joe Molitoris for showing us such a great time in Belize!!!

As our second trip to Central Amrica this year, and our first dive trip together, Belize seemed like the perfect location. I stumbled upon a promotion on Living Social and from there we were on our way. The trip was scheduled around mysignificant other's birthday and Cindy and I exchanged several emails about a cake and suggestions for celerating the day.

On our arrival Cindy and Joe met us at the airport with cold libations and warm welcomes. As we drove back from Dangriga to Hopkins village they pointed out the sights and enticed us with their adventure story of how they came to move to Belizeand pursue their endeavor

September is off season in Belize and the week we travelled was actually Belizian independence day and many locals close up and take the week off. We were at first a bit concerned when we found out the neighboring dive resort was closed. However, all apprehension soon abated after Cindy's staff told us of a local who was available. Cindy made several calls and we took a trip to the marina and in no time we were set up with See More Adventres for diving the next morning.

The day was amazing and we were spoiled beyond belief. After a day of diving and making new friends. We were actually treated to an impromtu birthday party featuring the day catch and prepared by our dive guides.

In addition Cindy was able to arrange for us massages at the bed and breakfast and a day trip to the Mayan ruins Xunantanich near the Gutemalean border.

Hanging with Joe and the crew at the bar in the evenings was great fun. Breakfast was terrific and included as part of the room rate. Let me just say, it is not the waffle and juice of typical free breakfast. The aroma of coffee ticklled my nostrils and awakened us each morningThe room was clean and exactly what was advertised. We could not have asked for a more relaxing vacation or way to celebrate a birthday.

Cindy and Joe have made a Belizian dream and warmly share it with their guest. They are knowledgeable, accomodating, and a joy to stay with.

We highly suggest a stay with them as we hope to return in the near future

The owners Cindy and Joe were fabulous. Very accommodating, friendly as well as easy going. Hopkins is absolutely GORGEOUS. The location of the B&B was perfect...steps from the beach. Tour options were provided daily and left from the property which was incredibly convenient. We stayed in the Iguana Suite which was large and extremely clean with an over-sized contemporary bathroom. Breakfast served daily was delicious and they recently purchased a huge catamaran for snorkeling / water ventures. Waking up every morning to their whistling parrot added so much to the experience of being far from home, enveloped in the wilderness. He was most entertaining. We absolutely LOVED our trip. My only suggestions would be to remember film if applicable, lot's of bug repellent, snacks and patience. Kick back and enjoy the Belizian pace of life. It is simply wonderful.

Room Tip: Definitely request the Jaguar or Iguana Suite.

We stayed at Caribbean Shores from 10/27/12 to 11/2/12. The room was nice and well kept. The place has a nice pool and hot tub on the ground floor. It was great to wake up to a different hot breakfast everyday. Cindy and Joe and the staff were all very helpful in making suggestions for activities and places to visit during the week. The beach was beautiful and relaxing and there was a nice bar on the beach at the resort next door. We had a real fun time at hiking and ziplining in Bocawina as well. It was about a 20 minute walk into town, but Caribbean Shores has bikes and there are golf carts for rent across the street. It's definitely worth going into town to explore and check out some of the local restaurants. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful place I would definitely recommend Caribbean Shores and Hopkins.
