  • Fantastic Vacation!

    "This was absolutely one of the most amazing vacations we have ever taken...mainly due to the staff of Epi and Manuel, who are of Mayan heritage and very proud of it! Epi arranged a snorkeling trip with Patrick at the Sittee River Marina (1/2 mile away with a very nice restaurant), brought us back beer from town, and even washed our vehicle before we left! We rented a car from Belize City and drove the almost 3 hours to Hopkins. The main roads are paved, so the trip was relaxing and we were able to just take in the countryside. Epi greeted us and showed us to our unit, which is rather modest in American standards but completely adequate (stocked with everything we needed). As it turned out, we were the only guests there for the entire 8 days. Therefore, we were fortunate enough to really get to know the staff. Manuel is an official tour guide, so we went on 3 different excursions with him. We hiked Antelope Falls in Mayflower National Park (there is a pristine swimming hole at the TOP of the waterfall--the hike is strenuous, but worth it when you get there!). We drove to Xunantunich, which is a very impressive Mayan ruin. What's visible is amazing, but what's incredible is what's under your feet that's not yet been excavated. Then he took us to his home area of Punta Gorda. It's just a completely different area from Hopkins. He took us to swim in the river, and we witnessed 2 ladies doing their laundry in the river with rocks. It's fascinating and humbling! There are more restaurants than we could possibly eat at in the area. Tina's was the most authentic that we tried (had barracuda and gibnut!). We drove to Plancencia twice. This is a more "touresty" area, but a nice change of pace. Just make sure you find the "sidewalk" on the ocean side of the road. This is where a lot of the shops and restaurants are. My daughter is into geocaching, and we even found a geocache in Placencia! That made her trip. I was so sad for this vacation to end. We had fabulous weather and a fabulous time."

  • Wonderful place to stay!

    "We have been to Hopkins many times and know the village layout well. Blue Moon is centrally located in this village and is right on the beach. The neighbors are very nice people, very friendly. Our granddaughter loved playing with the kids next door. The Garifuna bakery is only 1 lot over, so be sure to buy your fresh breads there! Blue Moon Cabana is very roomy, if you have to stay indoors for any reason. The extra large covered veranda has lots of comfortable seating and hammocks where we spent most of our time if we weren't directly on the beach. The entire place is very well laid out - from the cooking/ kitchen utensils to all the little extras (flashlights, umbrellas, coolers, etc.) you may need while you are there. Mirko and Annette, the managers, are great people and will take good care of you!"

  • Restful Respite in a beautiful location

    "My sister and I went to Belize to deal with our fathers estate. We were received with thoughtful attention and assistance to do what we needed to do at a time when we were grieving and tired. Our room had sweeping views of the ocean. Not once did we feel unsafe night or day. Paulette from Luba's just next door fed us coconut rice and chicken smothered with sweet salsa, just a door down in the beach. Breakfast at Luba's was french toast or Belizean style jack and eggs. There is a general store within walking distance and the highway to Hopkins is easy to drive on rentals at Hopkins auto rental and they bring you an SUV to the airport. A five star experience on a three str budget !"

  • Awesome Property

    "We visited Belize for three weeks with the first two planned and the last week open. We enjoyed the condo and Hopkins area so much we decided to spend our last week where we were. As far as value, we paid more for the car we rented than the studio we stayed at. The condo was better than advertised and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting this area. A vehicle was very helpful but extremely expensive. Would strongly recommend not using Avis as we just got an additional bill for over $700 after paying them over $80/day. Another excellent restaurant is the Sandy Beach restaurant that is right on the beach and very reasonable. If you like to kayak we paddled over to another resort for a breakfast buffet with the added thrill of seeing a couple of grazing Manatees that surfaced about 20 feet from us. If you like to ride horses, Outpost Trails is a very special place with good horses and only a couple of miles South of the Sittee River turnoff from the Southern Highway. The condo is a special place that greatly enhanced our visit in this area."
