“Great place to stay on the beach”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on our vacation. We used one day as a relax and catch up our journals on the beach day and the next we went to Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve.
Our cabana was great, after 6 days in the jungle it was amazing to have electricity and a big shower to relax in. We did arrive exhausted and right as it got dark, and Rita was right there to greet us. We dropped our gear and took showers (this was after the horrific Outlook Tower hike at St. Herman's cave) and afterward Rita brought me a bag of ice for my hand that I hit on a limestone shard on said hike.
She's great, very no nonsense and helpful with information for your stay in Hopkins. The maid service was great, breakfast was always on time and delicious.
We didn't experience anything negative during our stay but it really is a B&B on the east edge of a town. We used it as a stop over for Cockscomb and it worked marvelously for that, but there's not much to do. So if you want to read or journal on the beach this is a great place to do so.

Room Tip: Pick a cabana by the beach, we woke up MANY times to barking dogs, roosters and other city like nois...

Hopkins Inn was a decent place to stay in a dirty little village that does not have much going for it. I booked this place after I read all these raving reviews about what a gem Hopkins is .... and now I would suggest that you do not believe the hype! This B&B was located on the beach but the water is murky and there is always garbage washing up though the owners do try to keep it clean. The cabanas are cute and tiny with hard beds, little fridge, coffee maker, table chairs and private bathroom. It was clean and decent for where it is but maybe a bit over priced. The breakfast is sweet breads, fruits and juices which were good but too much sugar for my taste. When we arrived the lady owner Rita was very welcoming and was helpful during our stay but the male owner Greg was very reserved and somewhat odd. He was friendly with other guests and drive them around town, etc but we felt uncomfortable as he barely said anything more than hello. Not sure if we did something to offend but that was a downside to our visit. The maid was very nice and friendly and the dog was very cute and well behaved. Personally I would not recommend Hopkins Village or visit again but if you decide to go, Hopkins Inn is a decent centrally located place to hang out.

Room Tip: Pick a cabana close to the beach

We spent our last 2 nights in Belize at the Hopkins Inn right in the heart of the little town of Hopkins Village, Belize. WOW - you can ask for nothing more! We had a cute little cabana with a private bathroom - so cute and very clean! The view from our room and the little porch was of the beach and we went to sleep each night listening to the waves. So peaceful. When we woke up each morning Rita brought over a wonderful breakfast to us of fresh fruit, yummy breads, eggs and fresh squeezed juice. I don't think we'll ever stay anyplace else now that we've found this little gem!

Room Tip: All of the cabanas are in a great location!

Great spot on the water. Nice, roomy cabana with a mini fridge, coffee maker and a breakfast of fresh fruit, juice and bread and pastries served every morning to your vernanda. It's a great way to start the day. It doesn't get much better than this. If what you are looking for is a quiet, well run out of the way place made particularly enjoyable by a couple of vey nice hosts, Greg and Rita, this is the place. The village of Hopkins is like a step back in time. The locals live a humble existence and are friendly and welcoming . Electicity didn't come there until about 10 years ago. There is a nice little beach bar a short walk up the beach at the Windschief which has internet access, and serves food "when people start coming around" which is usually later on in the afternoon, and serves whatever they have fresh that day.

Greg and Rita are great. It was easy to book with them via email and the accommodations were comfortable. I loved that we were right on the beach. My only slightly negative (and, I don't hold this against them at all) is that I wish they had wi-fi access. But to be honest, Hopkins was the most difficult place for us to stay connected. That probably gives the place a bit of a natural experience. We really didn't mind too much.

The prices were really reasonable. Rita even booked us a flight on Tropic Air (they are agents). I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I think all their cabanas offer a view of the water, but just in case you might want to request it.
