Is Hopkins Inn right for you? Maybe not.
We pride ourselves in offering a good service for value experience and we work hard to exceed our guests’ expectations. But it’s important that those expectations are realistic. At the risk of boring you, the biggest surprises may be:
*We have a natural beach. There are not machines that come and clean the beaches each morning, like in Florida or Mexico.
*Hopkins only got electricity in 1994. This means we are not as up-to-speed as you may want us to be.
*The village embraces the morning-time with singing tropical birds, dribbling of basketballs, children playing, and the washing of laundry. Even the roosters and dogs welcome the sun.
*Belizeans, especially the Garifuna, enjoy a party. They love their music and play it in times of celebrations, holidays, and rituals. Mourning means playing drums from sunset to sunrise in order to accompany their love one “up.” If you want a cultural experience in Hopkins, it means music.
*We are not a resort-style hotel. If you require a more hands-on vacation experience, you may be happier with a resort-style hotel or even an “all inclusive” as opposed to the cultural vacation experience in our village. There are several hotels that provide wrist bands and meal packages located a few miles south of Hopkins in the village of Sittee Point, but that's not us.
