Beautiful, welcoming & great location!
We really enjoyed our stay at Sarkiki! Everyone was warm and welcoming! It was awesome getting first hand advice on places to eat and places to explore! We especially enjoyed our fishing and snorkeling trip on Patrick’s boat with Captain Jack which Linda arranged for us. Having Mangos right next door was great in the evenings we just wanted to stay close.
Safe place, friendly staff, easy access to the ocean, clean property. Highly recommend this property.
Hopkins Sarkiki condo
We really enjoyed our stay. the owners were very nice and responsive, even finding us fresh fish to grill. The beach is perfect and the pool area was very nice. Our only issue was with the no-see-ums (sand fleas), just be prepared!
Mothers and Daughters in Belize
We had an amazing time in Hopkins. Choosing a VRBO over a resort seemed a little risky, but we wanted to experience Belize in a non-touristy kind of way. The villa was simple but adequate, and included the use of pool rafts, bikes, books, and more. We were able to Zipline, hike, and cave tube nearby. It was great!
Great property and staff
Like a few reviews have said, this is not a personal rental but a “resort”/“hotel”. No personal touches and could’ve used a few more amenities (metal tools for BBQ etc. Nothing major)
Beach was great, a long walk out to get to deep water so good for little ones and maybe not for serious swimmers.
Pool was great but the poolside bars are supply and serve yourself.
RENT A CAR. We did and used it pretty much every day, be it for a quick grocery run or exploring either way, there’s not much around so it’s not very walk friendly.
Beds were what you’d expect in a third world country, stiff but served their purpose.
The staff were great and always ready to help. We arranged a fishing trip for a better price than you find on-line so don’t be shy.
My wife and I spent a week at Sarkiki Reef in April and had a wonderful time. We had stayed here once before, several years ago, and were keen to come back. It did not disappoint! The condo is very spacious, on two levels, both with patios, and a third patio on the roof with great views out over the garden, pool, beach and the Caribbean. The line of tiny islands that make up the South Water Cayes was visible on the horizon. The condo is well equipped and had all the basics. The wifi functioned ok for basic purposes. The staff are excellent - friendly, courteous, helpful. If you want a fresh coconut straight from the tree, just ask! We ate breakfast on the patio each morning, and spent quite a bit of time at the pool, relaxing in the sun, swimming, and watching the iguanas. The grounds are attractive and well maintained. The beach is lovely. The sea is quite shallow close to shore, so you need to walk out until it is deep enough to swim. Since our first visit the Mango beach bar has opened right next to the Sarkiki complex. It's very quiet and casual, and we made good use of it. The marina is close by and there is a good restaurant there, too. Otherwise the condo is some distance south of the main village, shops and facilities of Hopkins. We rented a car and drove from Belize airport (approx two and a half hours), and were glad to have our own transportation. We spent two days diving and snorkeling with Seemore Adventures (their little office is one of the first buildings you come to when you drive back into Hopkins (as long as you ignore the one-way signs!!) We also spent two half days in the nearby Cockscomb Forest Reserve and the Mayflower Bokawina Reserve. Lovely tropical rain forest scenery with some great walks. Sarkiki is definitely one of our favorite places, and we hope to be back again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your second trip to our property and appreciate your comments. Mango's beach bar is definitely a great addition since your last trip as it is a convenient place for a bite to eat. Mike and I have had many meals there. You are more than welcome to our property for your next visit.
