The resort had beautiful grounds, with a great view. The beach was narrow, but enough sand and shade to sit out, and the water was warm and enjoyable - not crystal clear like the islands, but very swimmable when the surf was calmer (it was windy at times which made it choppy). The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Alan and Joseph. We had two bedroom condo and it was great to have a kitchen and living room to cook a few meals and relax. Hopkins was a bit more rural than I expected, and I didn't love the food at any of the restaurants we went to - if you want a more developed town nearby Placencia may be better. Pro tip: There is no ATM anywhere in town, so be sure to get cash before you arrive.

We loved the resort and its staff. The village is a bit of a walk, so we used the taxi service several times to take us to restaurants and shops. Hopkins Bay resort did a wonderful job of ensuring we enjoyed our stay.

The thing that sets a great resort apart from merely the good ones is usually the staff. This is definitely the case at Hopkins Bay.

My group of three business travelers opted for this resort and selected a three-bedroom villa at the sea's edge (#19). We were not disappointed. Our experience began with the approach through the town of Hopkins...recommended for vehicles with very sturdy suspensions! On arrival, we were greeted by a wonderful reception staff and immediately offered a cooling fruit punch (with the option to add "a little something extra" to give it that extra kick). Then we were led to one of the most beautiful villas in any resort. The furnishings are beautiful and the villas are fully equipped. The ONLY things that keep me from adding the fifth circle to the review and giving it an excellent score is the fact that there was no television reception during our visit and the WiFi was not very strong. BUT...don't let that stop you if you are considering a stay at Hopkins Bay.

First of all, who goes to a resort like this on the Caribbean Sea in Belize to watch TV? But more importantly, once I sought out Assistant Manager Theo and brought my issues to his attention, he assured me that the resort is awaiting the arrival of material to do a full revamp of both the cable TV and the WiFi equipment. That will be a good thing, and Theo assured me that it will be completed shortly.

Speaking of Theo, he is representative of the entire staff at Hopkins Bay. Everyone I encountered (with one notable exception at the bar on Saturday night) was extremely friendly and helpful. I must point out especially CiCi and Patricia on the wait staff at both the restaurant and the pool bar. Not only did they address each member of our party by name at every meal, but went out of their way to provide first-class service at all times.

While this was a business trip, Hopkins Bay Resort was a fantastic place to come home to in the evenings after work was done..

Room Tip: Villa 19 is six steps from the beach!

The staff loves to go above and beyond to create unbelievable experiences for our guest. We try to make them feel special and a part of the Hopkins Bay family. Unfortunately through out the whole village of Hopkins the internet service is very poor and not comparable to the US. We try our best to accommodate with the poor service. We know that time is valuable so we want to show our gratitude for you writing a review. Please come back to visit us again soon.

Hopkins, in general, in pretty secluded and this resort is much more surrounded by locals and the town than other resorts and touristy attractions.

As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with a complimentary fruity drink with local rum. We were escorted to our 1 bedroom villa, on the upper floor with the most gorgeous view. I loved that I could see and hear the ocean from my bed. Not just the balcony, but from the bed!

The room was very tidy and had everything we needed. Big shower and bathroom, coffee pot and minifridge. Anyone from America will appreciate the big water cooler in your room. You don't have to pay $4 for a small bottle!

Robes and a room safe as well as a very comfortable bed were perfect for us. We spent some time on the balcony, but being so close to the beach, we'd just walk down and lay in one of the hammocks the majority of the time.

The breakfast was great! We ate at the Rhum Shack all 3 mornings and tried everything on the breakfast menu. The amigas was my favorite! And from the shack you could eat in open air with a beautiful view!

The Drum bar boasted a wonderful bartender Patricia who took great care of us. After the first day, we talked about how I don't love coconut. So she made me a special drink, on the house, that was fantastic, so I ordered those the remainder of my time there (they were even part of happy hour!). The lunch tacos there are great as well!

The grounds were pretty much spotless, the groundscrew made sure everything was clean every day. I had no issues with bugs or anything being broken. Everyone was nice, helped us get a taxi or gave us recommendations.

We'd come back for sure!

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view of the beach

This was the best vacation I've ever taken. The grounds were beautiful, and the staff was incredible. From the moment we got off the charter plane, Wassan was welcoming when he picked us up to go to the resort. Then, we were greeted by Allen and the friendliest front desk staff. We were given a tour of the majestic resort and shown to our villa. King was our waiter/bartender the first night, and he was great. The food was out of this world delicious. The Rhum Shack staff, especially Cici, Amalda, Patty, and Marvin, were great. And Jerry always took care of whatever we needed. We felt so welcomed by everyone. The villa was kept clean to our liking. Every single member of the staff was friendly and accommodating. The pools and ocean were beautiful with warm water. Absolutely love this resort!!
