Best place to stay with SMALL children?

We are planning to go to Belize in January and have two small kids - 2 and 4 yrs old. A lot of the family reviews are written by families with older children and so I am curious to hear what people think about the best accommodations for small ones. Prefer a more authentic experience, rather than a large polished resort. Have been primarily investigating Placencia and Ambergris Caye due to the plethora of options available but are open to other gem locations if you have any gooders to share!

Suggestions?

There are a number of smaller mom and pop operations in Hopkins with beach cabanas, some with small kitchenettes. Better than a hotel room in case someone cries in the middle of the night and in the morning you can just walk out your front door to the giant sand box.

Just wanted to follow up and say thanks for the suggestion on Hopkins! We did end up staying there and it was fantastic... a great way to start our vacation in Belize! We were a little out of the village at Sarkiki Reef but that ended up suiting us just fine as it was very quiet and private when we wanted but an easy trip into town for brunch and shopping or just walking around. So for anyone googling "Belize with kids" and finding this thread, do as Potlikka suggests and look into Hopkins! :)

Thanks for the update blt. It is always nice to know that when you take the time to post a reply that the OP has read it and possibly that you have given them an insight to make their vacation a little bit better, and that you have not wasted your time. Come back to Hopkins for another visit.
