“Beautiful pools, friendly staff and luxurious accommodations.”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

We miss Belize!! We miss the beaches, the jungles and all the great people we met there, especially our new friends at The Hopkins Bay Resort. Everyone was so friendly, they felt like family.

Originally, our plan was to be there for 2 nights, but we feel in love with Hopkins. We ended up staying at this resort for 9 nights as we explored the ruins, rain forests, waterfalls, rivers and diving of Southern Belize.

Thank you for helping make our honeymoon amazing.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Hopkins Bay Resort for 3 nights, June 14-17, 2010 and really enjoyed everything about it. The hotel grounds are very nice and the villas are huge with 3 bedrooms a full kitchen, dining area and living room with cabel tv (which is hard to find in the town of Hopkins). There are 2 swimming pools and the resort is on the beach with several restaurants within walking distance. We couldn't have been more pleased with the way we were treated during or stay. From the moment we arrived in Dangriga Mary and Dani were there for anything that we needed and helped us to make plans for our excursions and renting transportation. They are very friendly and helpful with everything. We had a great time and enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Hopkins Bay.

The villas at Hopkins Bay can't be beat! Mere feet from the edge of the ocean and the pool, it is a little slice of heaven. Falling asleep in the big canopy beds with the netting made it feel like a dream. The staff was super friendly and did a great job keeping the villa neat and clean. The small village of Hopkins was so fun and the residents were kind and helpful. I can't wait to go back!

Hopkins Bay Resort was advertised as a full service resort. We got 'caught' during the sale of the sister resort "Belizean Dreams' but wasn't informed before our stay. No restaurant, no lounge, no concierge, no tours, no internet as advertised on both Expedia and Hopkins Bay Resort website. Was upgraded to a beautiful villa which was well appreciated. We relied on very friendly helpful locals to book trips for fly fishing (Floyd) and snorkeling at South Water Caye (Bullfrog Adventures). Nice beach, clean well kept pools and beautiful gardens. Located well north of the center of town required considerable walking. We walked to Jaguar Reef Resort (2 miles south) to rent a golf cart for our rainy stay which helped in getting groceries and to explore all the way to the Sittee River Marina. Be aware of biting sand flies. This will again be the premiere resort in Hopkins but we feel that Hopkins Bay Resort should have warned us of their change in ownership and lack of resort services issues before we got there.

This is a beautiful, well kept, and secret jewel of Hopkins Village! My lovely 3 bedroom and 3 bath home was clean and in perfect condition! I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The kitchen has granite counter tops and a dishwasher. Mary and Dave the managers were great! I stayed an extra day I liked it so much and walked South to the Spendrift Beach Bar and Pizza Place for lunch and dinners, also went to Innies! Anyone who has a problem with Hopkins Bay Resort, should not be traveling in Belize. This is a top of the line accommendation. I loved watching the rotty play in the ocean and feeding the small cat on my porch everyday! My most relaxing days in Belize by far.

Hopkin Bay Villas have beautiful grounds, white sand beaches and a very helpful staff. Our family had a great vacation. Very relaxing, and the locals are extremely friendly in and about the town of Hopkins Bay. Many excursions and great scuba diving offered. A wonderful family vacation.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Hopkins Bay Villas on two separate occasions. Tropical places are among my favorites and I have been fortunate enough to visit many different places including Eleuthra, Hawaii, Jamaica, just to name a few. The Hopkins Bay Villa is one of my absolute favorites. It is not commercialized like many resort locations but we found ample things to keep us busy during our stay. We climbed waterfalls, went cave tubing, took a river tour to see monkeys, and went boating on the ocean. The people are the friendliest I have ever met. They are genuinely happy in spite of their rustic living conditions. There is minimal pan handling except for some ladies selling nice jewelery or little kids selling homemade rolls - which are fantastic. I specifically find it helpful that it is an English speaking country so there are no language barriers. The property has beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom units virtually right on the ocean with an infinity pool directly on the beach. If you want a tropical vacation without all the vast commercialism I would strongly encourage you to check out Hopkins Bay Villas.
