traveler reviews for this hopkins villa rental

Fantastic Vacation!

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: May 21, 2014

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.

Owners response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation. Our staff is awesome and are very good at taking care of our guests. It is great that you had fabulous weather. You were concerned with the weather forecasts you were seeing just before you arrived, but these generally report Belize City and the weather varies throughout the country. As you note, our staff are proud of their heritage and are knowledgeable about the country. Ethnicity is diverse in the country and it is interesting to see the cultural differences in the various regions in such a small country. Mayflower National Park is definitely a highlight - we love the waterfall and swimming hole at the top of the falls. A few months ago, we did a hike to the lower falls which also had a great swimming hole and not as strenuous. There are still other hikes that we have not yet explored. There is also Ziplining at the same entrance to the park. There is much that Belize has to offer, as you note, it is fascinating and humbling.

Wonderful Vacation

Review submitted: March 31, 2014   Date of arrival: March 5, 2014

We had a fantastic time at the Sarkiki Resort. There were four of us and the condo afforded plenty of space - although we were outdoors most of the time. We used the front patio a lot. Christine and Jim were the perfect hosts, making our visit feel like a stay with familiar friends. They were right on it with suggestions/ideas/booking trips. The Belizians who helped at the resort were also very helpful and very friendly.
We rented a car in Belize, the drive to Hopkins was 2.5+ hours away, but we got to see a lot of the countryside and stop along the way to visit other places. Having a car in Hopkins, for us, was a necessity. We explored much of the interior and along the coast.
We fixed brunch at the condo and ate dinner out in town. There were plenty of choices with an affordable range of prices. We were never disappointed in our dinners.
The only drawback were the no-see-ums. Blood thirsty little devils - but only when the on shore breeze was gone. Baby oil helped to curtail their meals.
The beach was always kept clean and a nice place to swim as it was shallow for quite a ways out into the bay.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Sarkiki Resort to anyone looking for a quite place to relax and relatively nearby day trips.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing

AS GOOD AS ANY OF THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS ONLY CHEAPER

Review submitted: March 16, 2014   Date of arrival: February 19, 2014

A wonderful beach, great accommodations and as friendly a people as you would want to meet near a really cute little town. First time to Central America but well worth it. Having been to several Caribbean islands this was every bit as good as any of them only less expensive in pretty much all categories. Relatively easy to fly from Vancouver BC at very reasonable airfare. Lots to do if you want from great snorkeling out past the Cays, seeing Mayan ruins to hiking up to the falls amongst other things. On the other hand if you just want to do much of nothing with the hardest thing deciding where and/or what to eat, very much available with wide variation of places to eat. If you rent a car at the international airport versus taking a short flight to get to the resort, plan on a 2 1/2 hour plus drive but appreciated having the car available during the stay. Also, like virtually all the Caribbean, there are biting insects. Regardless, neither of these factors would deter from highly recommending this wonderful getaway where virtually no one on the beach or swimming in the ocean. Sure do not get that in most tropic getaways!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
