Solid 4 star resort

Posted 11-Jan-2015
Wonderful front desk and restaurant staff. Friendly and eager to serve. Food is so - so but plentiful. Beach is kept clean and inviting. We chose to drive from Belize City to the resort. It would be more time effective to fly to Dangriga. Still it was nice to be able to drive around on our own. In all a solid 4 - star resort.

Perfect mix of beach and culture

Jaguar Reef

Posted 01-Nov-2014
Pros: The staff is exceptional and knowledgeable. Anytime we asked for anything the answer was always 'yes' or 'of course'.
Cons: It would be nice if the bar had a little better wine selection, but I don't really consider it a negative thing.
Location: We loved the friendly village of Hopkins. The resort offers many opportunities for day trips but just hanging out at the beach was my favorite.
We had a wonderful stay at Jaguar Reef in Hopkins. The beach was clean and beautiful, the staff is fabulous, we felt so welcome. Loved our rooms, clean and pretty. Would not hesitate to come back.

Paradise in Belize

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: The Hotel is beautiful right on the beach very quite even when fully booked.
Cons: Improvements to the road system in Belize.
The resort, amenities and staff were wonderful! The excursions were top notch and the best snorkeling trip we have been on in the Caribbean! The locals were very friendly and helpful we found the best dinner spot right on the beach at Chef Rob's a great 4 course meal right on the beach, exceptional.

Picture Perfect! Like a PostCard.

Posted 20-Aug-2014
Pros: I liked that they had 2 pools. one for adults and one for kids.
Cons: They could use new mattresses!! It seems as if whenever I go on vacation the mattresses are not good so I don't sleep as well.
Location: You are actually pretty secluded, so you need to take the planned trips. All were well worth the money. Much more than I expected.
We had an awesome trip. We went the 1st week of August. Lounging around on the beach was nice. Snorkeling was a lot of fun but my favorite was the Zip Line in the jungle. AMAZING!! Everyone was very nice.

Nice, Quiet Place

Posted 06-Aug-2014
Pros: The staff were incredible, especially the bartenders.
Cons: Food at the hotel isn't great.
Location: Remote location, but Hopkins is a great little town. The locals are awesome. Snorkeling is great.
Small place, nice beaches, great staff. Love the bartenders. Food at the resort isn't great, it's overpriced and bland. But it's not far down the beach to Chef Robs, or into town to grab something yummy. Nice weekend getaway for us. Snorkeling was fantastic, and beautiful.

Beautiful accommodations close to the ocean.

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: I enjoyed how large my room was. It was very comfortable. The AC and fan were great and kept me cool. There was plenty of closet and drawer space.
Cons: I could have used a reading lamp. However if I had asked for one they might have been able to get it for me. They were very accommodating.
Location: It was located less than a mile from Hopkins, a very small village. We flew into Belize City and opted to drive the 3 hours to the resort.
Vacationing at the Jaguar Reef Resort and Spa was one of the most wonderful trips I have taken. Everything we could possibly need or want was provided cheerfully. We were greeted with classical island drinks on our arrival which were greatly appreciated because it was very hot. While we had our drinks we were guided around the property to orient us to the entire property. We located the pool with the swim up bar. The bartender, Michelle was so friendly. It was my birthday and she treated us and 4 other people to "shots" for the celebration. The people who stayed at Jaguar Reef were so friendly. It was like I had arrived at a reunion of good friends. The rooms were very large and had a comfortable bed, air conditioning and fans. There are also windows that can be opened to take advantage of the cool ocean breeze. Great shower!

Super Friendly Staff

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: Its staff, its location on the beach and its amenities.
Location: Bicyles are free and the village of Hopkins is only a few miles away if you want to explore. By boat there is easy access to the barrier reef.
The resort is right on the beach and has all of the amenities you could want including a full restaurant, 2 bars, 2 pools, tour desk and a super friendly staff, from managers to housekeepers to landscapers, wait staff and bartenders, who make the best pina coladas of any resort I have been to in the tropics. Side trips and adventures are easy to sign up for and include snorkeling, horseback riding, birding, Mayan ruins tours, to name a few. This property is an excellent value, but requires transport from Belize City airport, best accomplished by small plane to Dangriga, 50 miles to the south. The hotel reservation desk can arrange all that for you. The food is excellent, 3 meals a day, but there are other restaurants within walking distance if you want to venture out in the evening.

Wonderful

Posted 20-Jul-2014
Our stay at Jaguar Reef in July 2014 was beyond our expectations. The location is beautiful, the staff is great and the nearby town, Hopkins, is so inviting. This place is like a hidden secret. Would definitely stay again. Miss it already!!
