Very nice hotel, right on the beach.

Posted 12-Dec-2016
Pros: Great facilities.
Cons: More experienced staff.
Location: Hopkins is a small Garifuna fishing village. Local activities include world class fishing, scuba, snorkeling, jungle hiking, waterfall tours, etc.
Great facilities. Nice mix of amenities, including a pier, hammocks, beach lounging areas, a tiki bar incorporated into an infinity pool. Excellent rooms with air conditioning, nice bathrooms, great kitchen and comfortable mattresses. Only slight downside is related to the staff and restaurant, which suffer from inexperience. They all were very nice and helpful, they just were not up to the standard set by other facilities in the same area.

Room was unique and very clean

Posted 11-Dec-2016
The water dispenser was a nice touch to add to the room extremely close to a groomed beach and over all a very nice resort with a well managed restaurant the only complaint would be to change the mattress as the body support of the mattress was none existent

Excellent Hotel Right on the Beach

Posted 10-Dec-2016
Pros: Everything.
Location: It is right on the beach and there are good eateries nearby, some with Garifuna music.
Our room was spacious, clean, and 100 feet from the beach. There were flowers on the bed as well as a towel shaped to form a heart. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were given a delicious welcome drink called purple rain, which the bartender said had been created at the Jaguar Reef Lodge. It consisted of dragon fruit juice, lime juice, and two kinds of room. I think we will try to recreate it at home. There was also a complimentary pint of Belizean rum in the room, with a bottle of coca-cola as a mixer. We are not fond of Cuba libres and asked for a different mixer; the staff said we could have whatever we wanted and we settled on lime juice. We had a wonderful stay at the Jaguar Reef Lodge.

A real dreamy spot right on the beach

Posted 05-Dec-2016
A good value for luxury accommodations with all the perks and also able to take in the local community without the feeling of being trapped at a mega resort. Dennis & Captain Larry especially made us feel right at home🙏❤️👌

Wonderful setting-

Great resort, so much to do. Snorkeling, kayaks, swimming, and bicycles all available. Staff is helpful and town is close enough without being too close.

Relaxing

Posted 24-Nov-2016
Pros: The quietness and staff. Both were amazing. I liked how they shared their culture and openly talked about what it means to be Belizian.
Cons: Having access to wash cloths and training a certain waitress in how to address customers.
With the exception of one waitress everyone was great. Staff is friendly and accommodating. One waitress made it a point to make my 12 year old son feel bad about ordering the wrong thing off the menu. She than proceed to carry the attitude by throwing my food out when I was not finished with my meal as well as making rude comments when there were questions about the bill. The food was great but limited. They do not have a lot of options to choose from and often ran out of the items of the menu. I enjoyed the quietness and relaxation of the beach. The convenient access to transportation for the different activities throughout the city was also a plus. Overall the stay was great and will recommend this place to friends, family, and strangers.

Would NOT recommend this Resort.

Posted 16-Nov-2016
The food is over priced & over cooked, so I would suggest venturing out to local restaurants. Excursions are overpriced as well. My favorite part was probably the bedbugs. As for the staff, all were truly great. Right down to room service. They & the locals are quite finally anywhere you go. WiFi was a hit or miss.

Would stay here again and again

Posted 09-Nov-2016
Pros: The entire resort and it's ambiance was the best! The top notch staff made the stay very enjoyable! I can't say enough nice things about the resort and I have nothing bad to say about our stay there!
Cons: The only thing that is worth mentioning is that the bed I stayed on was a bit firmer than I like, however that did not affect my sleep. I just want to put that out there for those who are wondering about the bed's firmness. Also the bed rooms weren't very dark at night, they only have one layer of curtain for privacy and with all the exterior lights lit most of the night it was hard to get the room to a dark level that I prefer. That being said I did enough activities every day that I slept well even with all the light.
Location: The location is off the beaten path, near other resorts so plenty of eating options, most places take credit here but bring cash. Perfect beach!
