the Jaguar Reef (also part of Almond Beach), is a very nice hotel with a perfect view of the ocean. No room is more than 80 steps from the beach. Rooms have out door porches with hammock and nice rooms with large bathrooms. The snorkel trip is totall worth it, we so some wonderful things. I also recomend the Sittee River Tour. There were a few draw backs, it was not easy to get into Hopkins. The website makes you think you can just "pop" over to town for lunch etc.
It is a 15 min. bike ride on very bumpy roads with rusty bikes. You can walk (30 minutes). Hopikns is very small and rustic. We felt a little traped in the Jaguar Reef and the resturant was a little expensive for the style food. The resturant is nice, its just not fancy. I think the breakfast buffet was a good deal. There is a small coffee shop at one end of the property that had sandwiches etc. at lower prices. (be ready for weird meat and low end cheeses if you go this rout). I would recomend a 3 day stay. The beach was a little dirty this time of year.
