We loved our stay in our huge room with amazing views of the sea. The staff were all so friendly, helpful and professional. Dinner wasnt so great. We made a 7.30 dinner reservation for Saturday night. There was garifuna drummers and dancers playing so loudly in the restaurant that we couldn't eat. The vibration and noise was so loud that it went through your body, caused headaches, and certainly wasn't a dining atmosphere. There were few choices on the menu for vegetarian dining. We left and found another place to dine. Our room doesn't have a phone to contact the front desk ...our door lock broke and we couldn't open the balcony door to the beach. We called over our balcony to the security for help but nobody came. Later that day a maintenance man came and replaced the door knob with new key after we told another employee. Our air conditioner wasn't working and management generously gave us a complementary snorkling trip...very generous of them. As well they compliminated us with breakfast. The only tv is in the bedroom so when our company came to chill and watch some shows at the end of the day our only choice was to invite everyone into our bedroom! Of course we decided to pass on that idea! Lol Our friends had no tv or phone in their beach villa either. Even though we encountered a few glitches, the overall environment is beautiful.

There was three of us sharing a spacious room. I recommend the 3rd floor(if you can do stairs) for best ocean view. You’ll walk up a winding staircase looks like a big tree. You walk into your room and have a large living room, bathroom and small kitchen as you walk in. The main bedroom has a massive bathroom that includes a jetted tub. Outside is a patio with beautiful ocean views. There is also another sitting area outside for jungle type views. You have a pool and hot tub to share with the other rooms, most of the time we had it to ourselves. The best part is the beach is just a couple steps away. Breakfast was included in our package and was great portions. Each day Walter made great drinks either at the pool bar or big dock. I felt the drinks were high quality compared to other resorts I’ve been to. Everyone honestly always took good care of us. If you want to see manatees goto the big doc bar, they sometimes like to hang around there. Also, snorkel south water reef. It’s a nice half day trip with lots to see and some of the clearest waters in Belize. One thing I’d recommend if being prepared for sand flys. Regular insect repellent does not work well for them. Lemongrass oil is supposed to deter them. It’s there’s a breeze they won’t bother you! Truly a great place for relaxation and adventure!

Though the Jaguar Reef Resort and adjacent Villa Margarita are a short 5 minute drive from town, it is well worth the oasis you arrive at. The main lobby and restaurant offer tranquility and panoramic ocean views. All of the guest services staff and servers, most especially Shakira, helped make our stay wonderful. The Villa is beautiful and private. Feels so grand an luxurious when you walk in. The views are everything you would want in a Caribbean vacation. If you can't handle walking a few flights of stairs or walking down the beach for breakfast, this place isn't for you. If you want to peace and relaxation, stay here. Make sure to go up to the top of the Big Dock for a cocktail. The atmosphere can't be beat. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so wonderful. If we come back to Hopkins, it will be to see you all!

Fabulous villa right on the beach. Our family of 10 (5 couples) rented the whole villa, so each couple had their own private suite. Large suites with well-appointed bathrooms and kitchens. Quality construction and very clean. View of the water unobstructed. Quiet. Easy walk to 2 restaurants and cool bar at end of pier where people could jump from 2nd story into the water (and we saw a manatee swim by!) 1-2 mile walk into the village. Staff was friendly and attentive, though food service was slow... we experienced this throughout the country so it may be a cultural thing.

The view from the 3rd floor is gorgeous . The rooms were more space than my family of 5 needed and it was sparkling clean. From the moment we got left the airport and met our driver/guide (Jonathan), we felt super welcomed. Shanelle was at the front desk when we checked in. She gave us the lay of the land and was very helpful, professional and friendly during our stay. Captain Larry graciously opened coconuts for us to drink on the beach and also made us feel very welcome. Chris and Shakira went above and beyond to help us plan our adventures during our stay. We did snorkeling, ziplining, river tubing and ATV to waterfall. Jamar, along with Captain Mike took us snorkeling. Jamar pointed out all the different corals and he educated us on all the different marine life we saw.

We ate breakfast at Jaguar Reef and the food was delicious. Charles, our server, was fantastic. My family loved the stuffed Jacks. Chef Rob’s was great for dinner as well. Definitely make a reservation though. We also ventured into Hopkins for awesome lunch at Ella’s. We borrowed bikes from the resort and stopped at the grocery store and gift shops along the way. The Dock Bar was a total blast too. Bartenders were great and we enjoyed swinging into the ocean from the rope swing. The day beds were pretty sweet too. We never saw a manatee but I heard from other guests that they spotted them. Belize is a beautiful place for vacation adventures and the people we met along the way just made it even better.

We were surprised with a room that had a kitchen and living room as well as a good size bedroom and bathroom. We were in a second floor room, the deck has a nice view of the ocean framed by palm trees. That is semi-private, as there is a wood screen between you and the other room's deck. Our room had large wood carved walls in the living room, beautiful large eat-in fully equipped kitchen, and lovely tile everywhere. The staff was helpful and polite. The building is literally on the beach and you have a staircase from the room that goes down to the pool and the beach.

We stayed at Villa Margarita for 5 days and aside from one rainy afternoon it was paradise. Our friends were staying at the Almond Beach, a mere 2 minute walk down the beach from us. We would often gather at the amazing Dock Bar or chill poolside at either the almond beach swim up bar or Villa Margaritas private pool. Both were lovely and well maintained. Larry and Bruno were both wonderful in providing fresh coconuts and delicious drinks respectively as well as adding to the friendly vibe of our trip here.
Emery was also a very comforting presence as the security advisor.
The one drawback was the new implementation of golf carts, there are still issues with several of the carts and I would say come prepared to ride a bike if you want to see the city in daytime.
Provided kayaks and Paddleboards were a blast. And be sure to check out the blue lights on the dock bar at night.

We loved our stay with Villa Margarita. We booked the entire second floor and had a great view of the pool and ocean. We have 2 little ones and Jaguar Reef accommodated our rooms with 2 cribs for them. Even though there is no phone and the Villa is a little secluded from the resort - Raquel from the Conceierge services was amazing and helped us with everything we needed via WhatsApp. Even after we left, we found out that we forgot 2 valuables in the room and she called the lodge we were staying with and organized with them how to get them back to us. We truly appreciate that and the service we received. We did get locked out of our rooms once due to not having the right key but they tried to fix that and also compensated us with a complimentary breakfast. Overall I really recommend staying here! It was amazing.

This spot was wonderful! A friend and I had the whole second floor to ourselves-the space was clean and quiet and we had full access to all the amenities at the Jaguar Reef resort. The resort was clean, well maintained and the staff were the staff were very friendly and helpful. especially for meals with my friend's very strict food allergies. They took excellent care of us and I would definitely come back and/or recommend to anyone looking for a nice, quiet beach getaway.

Such a nice place for families, or singles. Captain Larry is a gem and is always smiling and if you are wanting to find something he will find someone who can help you. Will helped us with our excursions and he was great. I always wanted to try a sprouted coconut and Ambrocio was able to find me 2 of them! Leo our driver was great. and answered questions for us on our drive to the resort.

Yes there is a flight to Dangriga. A taxi runs about $35us. If you have booked through us, you can get in touch with the agent you booked with and have them make those arrangements for you. If not, visit the Tropic Air or Maya Island Air website. I hope this helps.
