Great location and Ocean Experience

Posted 18-Mar-2017
Pros: Location, convenience of pool, restaurant and the cleanliness of the beach and cabanas.
Location: The location was great. If you were interested in activities, guides or tours, everything was there.
The Jaguar Reef was a pleasant experience as cabanas had a great ocean view and pretty much everything you need. The Cabana I stayed in was very handy to the restaurant, but also very noisy and was a major route of other guests. Staff was friendly and helpful, BUT almost over friendly at times. Overall the staff was great and helpful. The restaurant was very nice, but expensive. We had a variety of meals, all were better than average. The price in the end was worth it because of the convenience, setting and quality. Overall it would be hard to not give the Jaguar Reef a 4.5 rating.

Needs to be updated

Posted 16-Mar-2017
Staff could use customer service training. Very limited menu and wine selections. Right on the beach! Although there is weeds growing in the sea just off the beach. It was not recommended to walk to town after dark and it's a $10.00 usd cab ride ( if you can find one) for the 2 miles from the resort to town.

Amazing Place!

Posted 04-Mar-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: Could use some signs pointing in the right direction upon entering the town of Hopkins.
Location: Couple kms out of town. Great beach. Best to rent a bike or golf cart if planning to go to town every day Lots of restaurants nearby.
What a wonderful place to stay! Although its a little difficult to find due to a lack of signage, once we found the place it was gorgeous! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful which is certainly not always the case in Belize. Upon entering we were greeted with welcome drinks while the paperwork and room was sorted out (we arrived very early). The room was dated but beautifully done with high quality bedding and mattress. Yet another luxury not often found in the country. The beach and ocean were perfect and set up with hammocks and free use of kayaks and paddle boards. We stayed only 2 nights but my husband and I both wished we had spent a week here.

This is a fantastic hotel for families.

Posted 01-Mar-2017
Pros: Staff, staff and staff. Accommodations and environment were beautiful and relaxing, food was incredible.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Chocolate factory, snorkeling, boat trips, mayan ruins.
The staff were incredible, so friendly, and would bend over backwards to do anything to make our vacation perfect. That was down to every last staff member, no exception. Our kids were so sad to leave and want to keep in contact with several of the staff who voluntarily entertained them during our stay. The trips were also extremely well organized, highly educational and fun, and really well organized. We are a very well travelled family, and have stayed in some of the top hotels in the world, but I would put this as one of our best if not the best family experience on a vacation by far. Many, many thanks to the hotel staff for making it a well needed break spent with our family.

Nice resort in remote fishing village

Posted 09-Feb-2017
Pros: The two-bedroom, two-bath room was nicely appointed. Beds and linens were of nice quality. The pools and beach were well kept.
Cons: Housekeeping could spray for cockroaches. The dock is in need of repair. Television reception could be much better.
We enjoyed our week at Jaquar Reef and would recommend it to others visiting Hopkins. The staff was friendly and helpful. Dennis, Larry and Charlie went out of their way to share their knowledge of the local community and to make sure we took full advantage of the resort. The restaurant had limited choices at high prices so we ate most of our meals at other resorts or in Hopkins. Excellent food at reasonable prices outside the resort! Enjoy the free kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles! The beach is beautiful and quiet.

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.
