“Hopkins Inn Is Just Plain Charming!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was our 4th year staying at the Hopkins Inn, with Rita & Greg Duke. You will not find more pleasant, welcoming hosts, including their dog, Lucy!

The cabanas are very clean, comfortable and right on the beach, and Rita serves a scrumptious breakfast of fruits, locally made breads and juice on the patio each morning! Hopkins Inn is within Hopkins Village so a quick walk to many restaurants, and a beautiful walk on the beach as well!

We so look forward to our returns to the Hopkins Inn and the friends we've made there.

Oceanfront, balconies, breakfast each morning, great owners. They even wake up each morning to clear the trash that unfortunately washes up on shore each day. The rooms are just wonderful and the sunrise is right outside your front door, along with the Hopkins culture and town. Seriously a wonderful place to stay.

This is the perfect place to stay in Hopkins! The Hopkins Inn is within walking distance of restaurants, groceries, and on the beach! The host, Rita, is so friendly and caters to your every need. Continental breakfast is included and served on your patio overlooking the Caribbean. We were there during the Christmas holidays and Rita served us their special Christmas Cake...deep chocolate and scrumptious. For great local food try Innies Restaurant (especially their local hudutu) and Laruni Hati (overlooking the Caribbean). Ours cabin had 2 bedrooms, a clean bath with good shower/tub, and kitchen area with frig. The bedrooms had fans and we were perfectly comfortable. The sunrises/sunsets were beautiful and you can sit on the beach in lawn chairs provided. The water is very clean and early morning walks on the beach are a must!

Room Tip: There are only 2 cabins...ours was a tad closer to the beach. It was the one directly in front of t...

Four lovely beachside cabanas is all that Hopkins Inn has and all that it needs. The cabanas are clean and well set up (comfy beds, table and chair, coffee and tea, and a very useful refrigerator) and the bathrooms, though on the small side, are also clean and well supplied. The beach front is small but, as with everything in Hopkins, you're pretty much guaranteed to have it all to yourself except for the neighborhood kids jumping in and out in the evenings. There is a small grocery store right outside, an Indian restaurant across the driveway, Thong's cafe a short walk away, and the excellent bar at Windschief and, with a supply of beer and the fresh fruit and home baked breads that Rita supplies in the morning, you could spend weeks at the Inn doing nothing other than watching the waves and strolling across for lunch or a drink! Or walking across to the nicest library you've ever had the honor to visit! If sitting around is not your thing, Rita and Greg will gladly direct you to the many things you can do a short drive or boatride away from this beautiful town!

Bottom line. Hopkins is a great place to hang out or to base yourself for all adventures Belizean, and Hopkins Inn is the best place to stay in at Hopkins (unless you're a resort loving sort of person!).

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two seaside cabanas. They cost a bit more but .....!

We spent three fabulous days in a cabana. Every morning Rita would bring a fresh fruit plate, a bread and cheese plate and fresh squeezed orange juice. The room comes with a refrigerator, a coffee pot and a small table and chairs. Both Greg and Rita were so helpful with information on the area and local customs. We love Hopkins and will stay with them when we go back!

Room Tip: There are only 4 cabanas to choose from so book early!

A friend and I stayed in one of the oceanfront cabanas and it was paradise. I woke up every morning to do yoga on my own private beach. Rita knew exactly when my friend awoke and would bring us a wonderfully fresh assortment of fruits and breads. (Who would have known that a squeeze of lime on a papaya makes it even more succulent?) There was a fridge and coffeemaker in the room.

Both Greg and Rita were friendly and helpful. Alysha (part of the housekeeping staff) seemed to take special care of us during the concert of settlement day. What a wonderful time we had!
We both agreed Hopkins was the highlight of our trip.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hopkins Inn after a week at Caves Branch. We loved our oceanfront cabana! It's literally on the sand and steps from the water. The cabana is very clean and spacious. Rita's breakfasts are great and the coffee maker is in the room (whoo hooo).

Greg pointed us to a couple of restaurants and to a bar. (Thanks, Greg!). We loved every place that was recommended.

The price can't be beat and we are really happy that we chose to stay in Hopkins for our "beach" time in Belize.
