How to Get There
Where do I begin? I wish I could add +++ beyond the 5 stars. We stayed at Villa Margarita, which is one several places in the same hotel group (vivabelize.com) and area.. Everything about this place is beyond exceptional, especially the people, Ana at the desk, Briceno, the bartender whose drinks are a work of art, Stacy the tour director and "Dennis the menace", who set us up with a Hoby Cat for sailing, waiters at the Paddle House Restaurant, Alex, Ruben, Jason and the amazing Chef Rahim (forgive me if I forgot someone or spelled your names wrong). We were treated as friends, always referred to by our names, and often asked how our snorkel trip, cacao tour etc was, remembering what we were doing. Because of their exceptional service and friendliness, their personal attention, I believe it rubbed off on all the guests. We met many people and chatted with them while there, unlike most Caribbean resorts we have been too. The accomodations could not have been any nicer. New, beautiful, spacious and beyond any expectations we could have had. We took an all inclusive package which included 3 meals, all soft drinks, and rum drinks, 2 excursions from the beach and 2 from Sleeping Giant Jungle Resort a partner resort, where we went next, shuttle from the airport to Hopkins, then to Sleeping Giant, and then back to airport. Unlike many all inclusive we ordered our food from the wonderful menu at the Paddle House. We will likely not get all-inclusive the next time we go because it was too much food! So good but big breakfast, 2 course lunch and 3 course dinner! Food at the Paddle House was very reasonable if we didn't have the all-inclusive. We didn't eat in Hopkins but many said the food there was good and even more reasonable. Do visit the little fishing village of Hopkins and visit with the residents selling their handmade items on the street. If you are looking for wild nights and steel drums and crazy tourist places, this is not for you. We went at the end of the rainy season but were blessed with all beautiful sunny days and not a lot of people. We have been to many places in the Caribbean but we want definitely to be back here! I have also never written a review on trip advisor but had to do one for here! Belize, we miss you!!!
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.
We had a wonderful time, the room and grounds are immaculate. The Paddle House dining is 5 star, absolutely some of the best meals we've had. The drinks at the bar are tasty and perfect. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return. Thank You!!
Hey guys me and my friend girls just got im the car to drive here for the food . the last time i came and stayed the weekend got in the wonderful pool.. Ate and played games.. I couldn't wait to eat the salmon again.. So we said lets go eat again😁😁.. Love this place
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.
