  • Exactly What We Needed!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Sapphire House. The place itself is a cute villa surrounded by a large yard that is well maintained and full of exquisite blooms, interesting textures and colors only native to the tropics. We had coffee in the mornings on the porch. There, we were eye-level with all the birds that perched in the canopy of a tall tree. They were not at all afraid of us. The house has a bird guidebook, too, so you can identify what you’re seeing. Inside, the house is nicely furnished and clean. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need though some of the island food is so cheap, you may not want to bother with preparing meals. There’s a tamale man who rides around on a large tricycle with a cooler strapped to the front. His wife’s tamales are truly a treat. Also, there’s a new, open air pupusaria on the island (across from the fake Starbucks) that’s open after 3pm. As you are walking out to The Split, you should also try any of the three vendors that cook right on the beach. All of them are very good and an economical choice. The restaurants are expensive. We also enjoyed the bakery and a man who sells baked goods from his tricycle. The only bad food we had on the island was at the Chinese restaurant across from the bakery. But back to the house! There’s a wonderful library (mostly fiction), so no need to bring books. The internet worked perfectly, even in some very torrential storms. The washer also worked well. Any issues that came up were dealt with by Caye Caulker Rentals very quickly. The sisters that run the agency are wonderful people and we enjoyed talking with them. The only drawback about the agency is that they will tack on 5% to you total cost if you are paying with a credit card. So your total on the contract is not correct if you are using a credit card. We found that the 5% charge is pretty standard on the island if you are using credit cards. We used the ATM at the bank from time to time to avoid extra costs. My husband and I enjoyed snorkeling at The Split, the reef off Caye Caulker and the preserve off Ambergris Caye. We also jogged around the island and took the shelter dogs out for a little exercise. But mostly, we decompressed. We spent two wonderful weeks at Sapphire House with a side trip to Guatemala to see Tikal and Flores. Sapphire house was all we had hoped for and was exactly what we needed."

  • PHENOMENAL - Best Vacation Rental

    "We decided to get married in Belize and had a decent size group of 11 people going. Villa Twin had 6 separate bedrooms, 6 private baths, 6 private entrances, one of the largest pools on the island, had separate A/C in every room, large open kitchen with gas stove, and only 15-20 mins from town center by golf cart (which is the main mode of transportation in San Pedro). This made it nice, quiet and private while having easy access to the restaurants and shopping. Oh! and flushing toilets!!! The entire place was kept clean and was well maintained. Now to the best part: Mario. Mario is the property manager and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable and wasted no time fixing one of the A/C units that went out the day it happened. His wife is a wonderful cook and dinner waiting for us when we arrived at the house. He helped set up all of our excursions and took well care of us. I think Mario MADE the visit. He is an honest and upstanding young man. We forgot an envelope of cash and he got a hold of us and wired every bit back to us. To say we are pleased would be a sever understatement. If you go deep sea fishing and catch anything, Blue Water Grill have what is called Catch of the Day where they will prep your fish one of three ways and it is completely worth it. That being said, La Divina had to be my favorite place to eat next to Robbins (if you can get there before they run out of chicken). If you are wanting a nice relaxing stay and to learn the island lifestyle of relaxation and to have just a simple, beautiful trip, Villa Twin Dolphins is the place to be."

  • Great Place!! Excellent staff!!

    "We had the opportunity to stay here twice. It was very pleasant and comfortable for our party of four. The rooms were very clean and clearly well taken care of. The beach was impeccably clean and even raked daily. I was impressed with temperature of the water...so warm and clear. We were given complementary coconut rum drinks, which were tasty. The staff was attentive and arranged all our activities. Kyra arranged a awesome day snorkeling with Ash, Bo and Juice. What a once in a lifetime experience! That day we made lifelong friends. The village was the best part of Hopkins. Nicest people ever!! We were very safe and felt as if we were part of the culture and village with the warm and welcoming Garifuna people. They have more love and kindness then anywhere I have ever been. Happiest people in the world. We became totally immersed in the village from super great food, drumming and cute beach bars with music. If your coming to Belize- come to Hopkins and stay at Coconut row. You wont be disappointed."

  • Very isolated but beautiful resort

    "The casita was lovely but we were in thE one closest to the restaurant and pool. 1 good thing - we could pick up the wifi in casita but it was noisy. The resort itself is very remote and very beautiful! The staff was very nice. We hoped to do some fishing while we were there. But emails regarding this said to wait until we arrived to plan. Not sure. If we could have planned anything by then as it sounded like we needed to go back to Orange Walk to meet guide!!! But it was too cold for good fishing anyway so I cannot comment further."
