“Incredibly Friendly and Good Value”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We opted for this lodge kind of by happenstance after looking at the ridiculousness that were the prices of Hamanasi(sp?), Jaguar Reef, etc. We are so so so very grateful we ended up here! The hotel, restaurant, and dive staff is phenomenal at accommodating their guests since it's a smaller place, and we found ourselves just chatting with them whenever we stopped in the office. Our room was a little musty, but also extremely spacious. The bathroom was awesome. I loved that they had bikes for us to borrow free of charge to explore the surrounding resorts. We also took them into town one day, but I wouldn't recommend that unless you are used to bike riding daily. The beach was very clean while we were there also.

The only downside was the woman who cooked breakfasts in the morning. She was not friendly, but you could possibly chalk this up to a cultural divide or maybe a bad event in her personal life at the time. I'd prefer to give her the benefit of the doubt....but she really wasn't very nice. The food she cooked though, oh my, top notch! :) We stuffed eggs into our fried jacks and mmmmm!

Actually, there was one other thing. We noticed if we locked just the door to our room, it could be opened by doing the credit card trick. We used the deadbolt instead which wasn't a big deal, but we had to ask the maid to do it too, as the first day she only locked the door lock.

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms are the same. They all surround the pool. You could potentially ask for o...

My girlfriend and I, along with our two friends had such an unforgettable Christmas at Parrot Cove. We rented the lower beach house, the ground floor of a large detached property opening onto the beach at Hopkins village, such a magical location. The house was well equipped, although a kettle would have been nice to go along with the coffee machine.

The integrated restaurant at Parrot Cove is "Chef Rob's". I cannot speak highly enough of Rob, the restaurant's patron and proprietor. If I was reviewing him alone, 5 stars would not be enough. He helped source fresh lobster tails for me to cook for Christmas Day lunch, with no surcharge. He cooked a delicious six course dinner for a packed house on Christmas Eve. He even gave the four of us a lift to Dangriga airport on our last day as he was going that way.

My only request would be a little bit more attention to detail by the Residential Manager, for example a very brief sit down to discuss the property and surrounding area on arrival would have been helpful. Also there was a slight discrepancy with our bill which was proving unnecessarily difficult to resolve, until Chef Rob stepped in to diffuse the problem perfectly.

Wonderful Christmas at Parrot Cove. Excellent accommodations on the second floor of the Villa for our family. Great food and ambiance at the restaurant with Chef Rob and Corrie. Christmas dinner was an outstanding special six course meal. Office staff was attentive and accommodating.

Room Tip: The Villa has a kitchen with full size refrigerator if you have a family and want to prepare any of...

We spent one night in the first floor of the beach house in November 2012. The house was very nice with a large patio that opened out on the beach. The staff was very friendly, and enjoyed one of the best meals of the trip ala Chef Rob. WE would definitely go back.

Small, intimate, personal, unimaginably good lodge. Service with a smile from truly happy people at your fingers without being obtrusive. Wow factor is off the charts!
Look no farther if all you want is a little slice of paradise.

This is one of the more inexpensive resorts in Hopkins Village. We felt like we were the only ones at Parrot Cove. The laid back atmosphere was perfect. Chef Rob is the most amazing chef and I loved everything he prepared. We went fishing and he cooked our catch of the day that was incredible and unforgettable. Prices in the restaurant were reasonable. I recommend Parrot Cove if you're looking to get away from it all. They provided bicycles and kayaks for free. The marina is close and is a great place to hang out. They have a party where locals and tourists are invited about once a week. It's a lot of fun with a local band and good food with cheap drinks. I highly recommend checking out the Curve Bar at the marina. Parrot Cove is centrally located between the marina and the town of Hopkins. Since it's not in the middle of town it's very quiet. We rented a golf cart to get back and forth and it was very enjoyable.

If you are looking for a nice quiet vacation in very nice surroundings this is a great spot. The rooms are not opulent but they clean and comfortable and good value. Chef Rob has an outstanding restaurant on site and the food is excellent and highly recommended (we caught fish which he cooked for us). We took a tour with Happy Go Lucky tours and would recommend them for a great fishing/snorkeling tour or Hopkins Underwater Adventures for diving. Romeo was a great host as well.
