“Best of both worlds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

Perfect place to stay in Hopkins. Right on a beautiful relaxing beach but also near the heart of the village so the restaurants and shops are in easy walking distance. Damian is incredibly helpful at arranging various tours or suggesting places to grab a meal. Our room was beautiful and we enjoyed the available wifi. Everyone in town seems to know and like Damian and they are always thrilled to hear you are staying at Coconut Row. We definitely plan to stay here again.

I think this was by far the best bang for your buck! The accommodations were quiet, clean, comfortable and offered all the necessary conveniences. The grounds were well groomed and stunning. Fantastic swimming, fishing and crabbing right out the front door! I can't say enough good things about Damien and Nisha. I enjoyed the visits with Nisha and Damien is so accommodating. Very personable and friendly, they treated us like family. Infact we found the whole village to be friendly. Everywhere we went the locals made eye contact and greeted us. Their children were so respectful and friendly. They were a pleasure to have around. Our kids made some great new friends. We felt very safe there. With Damien to assist us we found adventures sure to please anyone from croc hunting to zip lining. Don't forget to snorkel the reef...it is amazing! We walked away feeling as though we made some real connections with a few people. If you are looking for a down to earth kind of place where you get a feel for the culture, then this small piece of heaven is highly recommended.

If you're staying in Hopkins and don't want to stay at the resorts several miles out of town, Coconut Row is, by far, the best place to stay in Hopkins Village. My husband and I stayed for 10 days in the Sunrise Suite, and felt very much at home, thanks to the comfortable accommodations and excellent hosts, Damian & Nisha (as well as Benedicto, the warm and engaging caretaker on the property). We found the property through VRBO, but this is much more than just a vacation rental. Damian and Nisha are a wealth of knowledge regarding any and all activities available to travelers, and helped us get everywhere we needed to go. When unexpected event tossed a wrench into our vacation, Damian and Nisha were on hand immediately to help us get things sorted out and get back to having fun. Our favorite things were snorkeling (which Damian arranged for us through a nearby dive company), having cocktails on the Suite's rooftop deck, and swimming in the ocean in front of the property in the afternoons. Enjoy!

Hopkins is a lovely town with accommodations for everyone. want a 4-star American style resort with pool/jacuzzi/etc? you can find it. want a stripped-down room in someone's home? you can find that too. for the traveler who is looking for something in between, Coconut Row is an excellent choice. the guesthouse is aptly named for the bountiful and delicious coconuts that are yours to enjoy. the rooms are comfortable - with nice beds and a hot spacious shower. the rooms have conveniences that make a huge difference - a fridge, the option of A/C. and the grounds are stunning - gorgeously manicured beach, comfortable lounge chairs and sitting areas. all at an affordable price. from Coconut Row we were able to experience the best of the ocean/beach, the nearby jungle, and the local culture. thanks, Damian and Nishi

My husband and I walked into Coconut Row and were greeted by Damian. He was able to accommodate us with just a few days notice. Coconut Row sits in the center of town, back from the road so it is secure and quiet. Damian has the inside local scoop. The property is beautiful and well manicured. The swimming was fantastic. Great place to stay!! Awesome visit. Thanks Damian.

Damien proved invaluable in helping create this amazing experience fopr my boys and I before we ever left home. He was quick to respond with accurate details and helpful suggestions to all emailed concerns or queries and made me feel very secure in planning such a big adventure for my 9 year old twins and myself.
He picked us up and delivered us to the beautiful Coconut Row and made us feel warm, welcomed and sure in knowing that all of our needs would be addressed...right down to a stop for delicious fish tacos on the way to the property!

We spent two gloriuos weeks with Damien and his beautiful wife Nisha and their friendly and attentive staff (Benidicto, Robbie and Claudette) and will definitely return. I have already recommended this place to many friends who are looking for a clean, comfortable and safe environment where they can join in the local culture or quietly enjoy the beautiful beach available from your doorstep. You can easily choose to visit the grocery store adjacent to the property to prepare your own meals, or follow advice from Nisha and Damien about the wonderful restaurants that are available and close by.

I was amazed at the great lengths Damien went to in order to ensure my children and I had the best experience possible.....everything from ensuring the kayak was inflated for a play day in the sea to arranging an excursion to go ATV riding and cave tubing. He is a knowledgeable person about the country and very generous with his time and energy in order to meet any needs you may have.

We came to Coconut Row as very tired and somewhat nervous strangers and left with a feeling of sadness that goes with leaving somewhere that feels like home.

My sister, friend and I visited Hopkins in March 2012 and booked a 2 bedroom guestroom at Coconut Row. The location is perfect in that it is right on the sea and in the center of town but set back from the main road so it is very quiet. Damian and Nishi were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was huge with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, dining area and a lounge area! Since we left early some mornings for excursions it was great to have a kitchen to make breakfast before the restaurants were open.
Everything was very clean and there were fresh towels in the bathroom everyday. When the shower started draining slowly they fixed it immediately. The beach right in front of the hotel is amazing and the grounds are beautiful!
If I ever go back to Hopkins I'd definitely stay at Coconut Row again!
