My wife and I are on a one week vacation in Belize. We are touring around the country. Today we pulled into the little town of Hopkins looking for a bite to eat on the waterfront. We happened onto the Kismet Inn. What a great experience! The owner, Trishia, greeted us graciously and then prepared for us a tasty meal...including...

I spent 2 months at Kismit Inn and will always treasure the experience. When I first arrived Thrish (the owner ) said I reminded her of some guy that came to stay for a few days and ended up living there for a few years. I became a family member almost at once. Keys are left in the kitchen door...

Kismet Inn is breezy and leisurely comfortable. Food is excellent and made fresh daily. A variety of breads are homemade and tasty. The rooms are uniquely done up, Island style. The proprietor is friendly and fun, she makes you feel at home. Precious times are meal time when all guests have a chance to meet and greet each other and...

Trisha's little place is beautiful! You're not getting a five Star resort but if you go to Hopkins that's hopefully not what you're looking for. I arrived late after a long travel day and was sat down at the table with the rest of the "family" to enjoy a lovely home cooked dinner. The place is right on the beach...

If you are looking for laid back, on the beach with a good swimming place, then this is the place for you. For the budget conscience, I would recommend the dorm room which has 3 single beds and 2 separate rooms with a double bed each all sharing a common toilet and sink. The showers are cold and separate. The...

A mixed review here, it is a quirky little place.I can see why some arty type people might enjoy this. I however found the place dirty and smelly. There was a mouse in our room and a toad in the bathroom. The rooster crowed all night not just in the morning so I couldn't sleep. The owner is very helpful...

We stayed here by chance as we had arrived two days earlier into Hopkins than planned. Our prebooked place full : we followed the rainbow signs and found a patch of gold. True it wont be to everyone's taste however the eclectic, artsy , upcycled , recycled style suits us and we loved our two nights there. Tricia is a...

The Real Belize! I arrived in Hopkins and was looking for a place that represented the real Belize and all that it has to offer.

We stayed in the cabana for a night. We got to our room to find rat droppings littering our bed sheet. We were told by a very high owner that two people had spent the night and she claims that she had just washed their sheets. She also said they ran away at 5 am. We found out why. We...

“.Most rooms are seafront affording all the breeze and sea view you will ever need. Kismet Inn has it's lock box and on arrival guests are encouraged to utilize it at no cost. Guests are told to keep their rooms locked when not occupied to avoid theft which is commonplace worldwide.”
