We were 3 adults staying in the 2 room suite for 3 nights. The White Horse is lovely. Very clean modern accommodations with kitchen, comfortable beds, nicely tiled bath and shower, and clean beach. The owners are very nice, accommodating and quick to respond. It’s worth it to pay the extra for air conditioning, mainly for the humidity. Great location with grocery store across the street and several restaurants within walking distance. The internet worked perfectly from our room. We had no complaints with our stay.

The local cuisine restaurants are to the north and inexpensive. Our favorite dinner was at Geckos. The newer and more expensive restaurants are to the south. About 2 buildings south of White Horse, on the beach, is Maxems. We had fish burgers, French fries, and beers with tip $25! Good food. We walked and took taxis. We never felt unsafe or uncomfortable walking at night.

We hired Charlton Castillo with Hopkins KulchaTours to take us to Bocawina National Park to hike/swim to waterfalls and go zip lining. The zipling is a must! He was fun and knowledgeable about birds, plants and wildlife. We also went with Happy Go Lucky Tours for snorkeling. We were with Meds and Tyler, they were great. They took us to some awesome spots. Medz knows his fish.

The owners recommend Angel if you need transportation. He was wonderful. Very reasonable prices. He picked us up at the airport in Dangriga to take us to White Horse and also took us to Placencia for our stay there. Even made a couple stops for us along the way. Very interesting and fun guy.

We defiantly recommend the White Horse for your stay in Hopkins. A couple tips, they don’t supply hair dryers, most places don’t, bring your own bath soap, but they do furnish wash cloths, which is not always the case. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return to see more, and participate in more activities in the area.

Room Tip: If there are 2 staying in the same room and you don’t wake up at the same time, it’s worth the extra amount to stay in the 2 room suite.

Thank You for the lovely review. It is so helpful for others to hear about the transportation and great excursions here in Hopkins. I do have a blow dryer and iron for your use, sorry I guess I need to let guest know. We try our best but are new at this and you were wonderful help to us. You are great guest and we enjoyed you being here. We seem to get attached and are sad when you leave. We got great ideas from you and did hang another mirror. You have a beautiful family and we hope life brings us in contact with you again. Best to all of you , you sweet family...Laurene

Small but very clean room , good value. The owners are very
personable and helpful and the other guests were friendly and fun to chat with, We only needed a room for one night on our way back to Belize City. The surrounding neighborhood was very noisy on the Fri night before the start of Easter weekend and the owners had very little control over it but made an effort . She also gave us suggestions on where to go for a lovely lunch

Room Tip: Pay the extra for air conditioning.

Thank you for the honest review. We loved having you here. Easter Fest is a big celebration here. We desire for the culture to stay alive here in Hopkins (the drums, food, dance) but we do apologize for the over legal amount of base, and vibrating, interruption in the sleep of our guests. We do desire that the noise remain in the legal amounts (except of course on Easter and New Years). We hope you will come again if in Hopkins. You are great guest and a pleasure to talk with. Thank you for staying with us..Carl

The rooms are clean and comfortable and the service is warm and welcoming. My family really enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were really nice and it is quite affordable. We really liked having the kitchen so we had the option to prepare our own breakfast instead having to eat out. Will be going back.

We heard about this place from a couple in the jungle and I'm so glad they recommended it! when the owner showed us our own private bungalow were IN! Big clean room with a full kitchen. Next door is a new, huge grocery store where you can buy anything from plumbing parts to beer to snacks to dinners. We ended up staying for 5 days. The Wi-Fi was good. Next door on the other side was Ella's Cool Spot which looked like a shack in the sand but served most excellent ceviche and scalloped potatoes and, of course, BEER and other drinks. There is a slight Born Again Christian element here, but if you can avoid too much interaction with the owners (kind as they are) you would be better off.

Room Tip: we loved the separate bungalow - but there are rooms in the main building for less.

Awesome stay in March! Extremely clean and comfortable and easy access to the nearby eateries and grocery store. Laurene was so willing to share fishing info and local info on where to eat and drink! Overall experience was excellent!

Room Tip: bungalows available on the beach with cooking facilities and fridge!
