P.E.A. Visited Hopkins and stayed at White Horse Guest House. It's on the beach within walking distance to restaurants and stores. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the proprietors. ( Carl & Laurene ) Next, I was given the key for a scrupulously clean and comfortable unit. Our experience at White Horse and Hopkins exceeded expectations. It's a perfect place for rest and recreation. Angel and Ms. May are sociable. We enjoyed our stay and is planning a subsequent visit.

We were super bummed to have to cancel our stay due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but Laurene was very understanding and accommodating and offered us a full refund even though we had to cancel last minute. We will be back to Belize and look forward to staying at the White Horse Guest House in the future.

The White Horse Guest Cottages are just perfect!! We had Cottage #1 for 2 weeks and it could NOT have been any better! Angel (Manager) proved his name to be appropriate! And Mis Mae (housekeeper) is the sweetest lady! Carl and Laurene (Owners) are such gracious hosts! The cottage is five giant steps from the lapping waves of the beautiful Caribbean Sea! My wife and I were celebrating our 52 wedding anniversary with coffee on the front porch each morning watching the sun rise over the aquamarine waters. All our questions were easily answered by Angel (also a licensed Tour Guide). In fact, he arranged a day trip to San Ignacio so we could tour two Mayan Ruins, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. I also had five wonderful scuba dives with a local dive center. The Garifuna drumming was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed that and our whole trip. We had such a glorious time that this will not be our last visit!

We unfortunately had to cancel our stay due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. Laurene was incredibly accommodating with offering a refund in a time when I am sure many guests are cancelling last minute. We hope to come stay sometime soon as this hospitality and generosity is so valuable in challenging times as these. Thank you so much.

We arrived at about 2-2.30pm. No one was there apart from a guest. He explained that the manager had gone out about 2-3 hours earlier but was expecting us, however he had no idea when the manager would return. There was no one else there to help us. As we had been travelling on a local bus since breakfast, we decided to go get some lunch. But had all our luggage, which we didn’t want to carry back down the road to the restaurant. Fortunately the other guest said he’d stay there and we could leave our luggage with him. Upon our return to the white horse, the manager was there and seemed quite angry and abrupt. His first words to us were “who made the booking you or her”. Referring to me and my wife. There was no “Welcome to the white horse” Or “sorry I wasn’t here when you arrived” etc. I found this quiet rude and actually the way he said ‘you or her’ sounded quite chauvinistic and aggressive. I took offence to this and I didn’t want to deal with this aggressive guy. My wife took the passports to fill in the form and the manager didn’t like this and looked at me with such an angry horrid stare and said loudly and with menace to my wife” your husband seems to have a problem”. I was standing right there, so he could have asked me directly. With his very confrontational approach, I just said “saying sorry would be nice for you not being here when we arrived”. His reply was “check in is at 3pm.” I replied that in most hotels if you arrive early and the room is ready, then they let you check in. He replied ‘check in is at 3pm and the room wasn’t ready until 3pm.’ This was obviously a lie as the room would have been prepared in the morning before he went out. He continued to scare at me in such an aggressive way that I just wanted to leave and not stay here. He then said to my wife “I normally would explain things to you but your husband has ruined that “ he then turned and walked away towards his room. This guy is a grown adult! Moving on to the room. We were in the main building and there are lights outside the window of the room that were on all night and very bright sensor lights that come on whenever something passes them. The window coverings are not blackout curtains, so it was not dark in our room. In fact, I was woken several times by the very bright sensor lights coming on during the night. It was so bright in the room. The only good thing about this place is the price and the Internet. But the price is not worth paying when you just want to leave, as the atmosphere is so horrid. Especially as the manager lives in too, so there’s no escape from him. I just want to add that Hopkins in general, is more suited to retirees. It’s a bit of a sad boring place to be in if you are young or even middle aged with a family like we are. Our kids and us found the place quite depressing, but maybe the White Horse had a lot to do with that too.

Sorry to hear you did not like Hopkins or your accommodations. Yes the curtains are block out from Jc Penny's (they are made to let some light in so those that do not want a dark room but curtains closed during the day will suit them). The light switch for the patio is right out side your door as explained, you can turn it off. Your request to have lights off we could not accommodate as the lights go on automatically (sensors) for guests that return late and for security. Most of our reviews praise the manager and atmosphere, sorry we did not hit it off with you..please forgive, could just be the Spirit of it, since Hopkins was not for you as you stated. I see you have had problems at other stays with the accommodations in your reviews, sorry to see this. Had you told us we would of gladly refunded and excused your booking. Our goal is for you to enjoy your vacation for we know folks work hard and just want to relax. We hope your travels are better inn future and safe..Best to you..!
