beautiful outdoors/like a youth hostel indoors
The property is gorgeous with beautiful gardens, pools and a sandy, shallow beach. The owners and their staff were eager to please, provided tips on things to do and were quick to respond to problems with the air-conditioning and plumbing. However, if you want to enjoy your living space, and relax with a book or game at the end of the day, you may want to look elsewhere. Our 3 bedroom unit was furnished like a youth hostel - there was not a comfortable piece of furniture in the place. The 2 chairs and loveseat in the living room looked like they were from a garage sale. They sat a foot off the floor and metal poked us through the cushions. The dining room chairs were wood with no chair pads, the beds had 4" foam pads rather than mattresses. The lighting was poor and depressing, and there were no lamps. The hightop table outside had 4 chairs for our family of 5, and the lighting outside was too bad to play cards by. There was one 17" TV in the unit. You need to bring your own bar of soap for the shower, hair dryer, salt and pepper, paper and pen and any other basics that typically are provided. It was so disappointing, because with a little effort this could be a wonderful place to stay. Even though we had prepaid for our rooms here, we left 2 days early and moved down the road to Jaguar Reef where we stayed in a beautiful, comfortable unit which included many amenities and housekeeping service for about the same price.
Thank you for your comments. Our staff does a great job of maintaining the beach, grounds and property. We and the staff are all happy to answer questions and encourage guests to ask.
The exterior tables all have four chairs but if an extra one is needed we can easily accommodate based on guest needs. We saw that you did have five chairs and I'm assuming you borrowed one from the deck next door or one of the staff provided.
I was unaware that the couches had an issue but I will check into that as I have not heard that complaint before. Our cleaning staff is very observant and report any issues to us and I will follow up with them.
Mike did mention lighting when he was checking out for the family but I could have provided additional lighting if requested. Oddly we just had a review from guests staying in another unit at the same property that said they really enjoyed the fact that they had outdoor space with multiple decks that they could enjoy reading their books on.
The details of our property and what is provided do not say that soap and toiletries are supplied as we find many guests have individual preferences for these things and we discourage the waste associated with these. We also do not stock spices as they spoil easily. We do not indicate in our description that we supply hair dryers. Small appliances also break down easily in the environment - many things, such as TV's, we are lucky if we get more than one season out of. We also have found that most guests don't care about the TV but are more concerned about the internet.
We do encourage guests to ask questions as to what is provided or read the amenities noted in the description of our property.
Belize Beach Stay
This was our second trip to Belize and we found Linda and Mike to be attentive, extremely helpful hosts. Our unit was well-tended and clean. It was a great fit for our party of 6. The pool deck was inviting and the beach out front offers ample opportunity for swimming in the ocean--you can walk out quite a way and still touch bottom.
You were great guests and we really enjoyed having you here. Hope to see you back again :)
Great place to stay in Hopkins!
Linda & Mike were great hosts and have an great place! The pool area is very nice and the landscaping and gardens are beautiful. The employees are welcoming and friendly. There is a "perfect" beach bar - Mango's - literally next door. And The Curve Bar / Marina, one of the best spots in Hopkins, as it’s right on the Sittee River, is also pretty close by.
This would be an ideal place for a small group traveling together or for a family event. Our three bedroom unit had plenty of space for 2 couples (as one of the bathrooms is en suite). When we come back to Belize, we will definitely stay here again. We highly recommended this place.
House atStann Creek, South Hopkins
Lovely location just by the beach, that was peppered with coconut palm trees. The house was clean and sufficiently spacious, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. (Manuel was fantastic!)The kitchen was minimally furnished for cooking and eating at home, but we ate out all the time so it didn't affect us. The view and terraces were great, but we were too busy to really take advantage it! We loved our stay at Hopkins and enjoyed also a snorkeling trip with Patrick!
