Beautiful, beautiful place and wonderfully-cared for accommodation. From the personal greeting and cool tropical drinks on arrival to the painstaking details put into providing a clean, private and relaxing yet fun stay, to the warm and easy check out process on departure, we enjoyed the absolute best in hospitality.

Belize was comfortable and fun at Villa Margarita
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Getting to Hopkins from Belize City was a long drive, but once we checked into the Villa Margarita (The entrance to the resort and check-in desk is at Jaguar Reef), we were greeted and treated exceptionally well. The resort is split into 4 or so different small hotels. The Villa Margarita itself is like a condo and really was so amazing. The air conditioner was fantastic, and we really had everything we needed. I do wish the wifi worked better in Villa Margarita as it did in the main resort. The resort staff is super friendly and helpful. Charlie's bar is an exceptional bar, and Charlie is fun, knows the area and makes excellent drinks. There are a couple of restaurants on the beach next to the resort, but we found that the Lucky Lobster just down the road from the resort was the best for dinner, while the Gym/Cafe was the best for dinner, which opened at 6am and served the BEST green smoothies and zucchini bread. They also served breakfast burritos which were tasty. We went on multiple excursions that were organized through Jaguar Reef. We signed up for each one the day before and had the best time. The excursions included River Monkey Tour (We saw monkeys, crocodiles, and manatees), Snorkeling on the reef, and a Mayan Ruin tour. Highly recommended and would go again. -- Side note, we went during the rainy season in August, but even though it rained every day, the majority of the day was perfect. And because of the rainy season, there were no tourist crowds anywhere, including the resort. Also, we found it was easiest to fly to Belize City from Dangriga to go back to the states vs driving back. Same cost for hiring a car and no hassle.

Nice property, bad beach
Reviewed 1 month ago

We stayed at the Villa Margarita the first week of September, 2018. The property itself is in quaint village of Hopkins. Hopkins is a very casual environment, with mainly dirt streets and very friendly people. The property is well maintained and the staff very welcoming and attentive. There were three downsides to the property; beach, construction, and wireless access.

The beach is not huge, and it isn't the soft white sands of the Caribbean that you might expect. It was suffering from some beach erosion, but the biggest issue was sea grass. The sea grass extends 10 feet out from the beach, sitting there in a rotting, stinking mess filled with bits of garbage. You couldn't safely step into the ocean because you didn't know what was beneath the rotting mess. If the winds died, you couldn't even sit outside because of the stench.

Construction was going on in for the Spa, dock, and sidewalks. The dock wasn't as big of an issue, or the sidewalks. But the Spa was 7 days a week, 14 hours a day. Not the most relaxing to sit out when you have saws going constantly two doors down.

Finally, the wireless was good in Jaguar Reef, but in Villa Margarita it was spotty at best. The router must be in another building down the shore because our power went out a couple of times due to storms at night, and the wireless did not. We could see adjacent properties wireless consistently, but Villa Margarita was intermittent.
