10/10 Exceptional

Highly recommend this property. This was my second trip here and it was incredible. The food at Paddle House is delicious, there are a variety of excursions and on-site covid testing was a breeze.

6/10 Good

The staff was friendly and inviting. The food was really good. We were there for 8 nights and housekeeping only came in once because we asked them to come and remove trash. The last day there I decided to use the blow dryer and when I pulled it out of the bag it was NASTY! Those who use hair stying products know that overtime if you don’t clean your styling tools you get a little product buildup, right? This blow dryer looks like it had been covered with product, there were still some long red hairs stuck to it, nothing wrong with red hair but not my hair color. I took a cotton swab and could run it across the surface of the blow dryer and little pieces of cotton were left stuck on the dryer. I left it out on the bathroom counter but am pretty sure it wasn’t wiped down and just stuck bag in the bag. The cleanliness thing is huge because currently travelers to Belize need to stay in a Gold Standard cleanliness certified facility, be it resort or homes people rent out. If this is any reflection on the cleanliness then standards obviously aren’t that high. Also communication could be improved in regards to events happening at the resort. Apparently on Saturday nights they have local Garifuna drummers come from the village to perform. Nothing posted anywhere about any of the happenings, except for happy hour in the lobby bar. Maybe something in the rooms about things happening at the resort. Just a laminated piece of paper would work.

Very nice stay for a couple
Everything about our stay at Jaguar Reef was incredible. Beautiful grounds and very polite and helpful staff. Edwin the bartender was just incredible and we loved the drinks. The location is in the South end of Hopkins Village so a cart or car is needed to explore. The restaurants nearby are also awesome. Will be coming back!

We will be back!
We loved our stay here! Travelled with my wife and 3 teenage children. We have been to many warm weather destinations and the consensus is that this was their favorite. The resort is perfect and has everything thing you need. More important to us was the incredible staff! So friendly and helpful! Larry, Edgar, Shakira, Anthony and the list goes on! They go out of their way to make sure you have an amazing stay. For that reason alone we will be back. In addition, the food options in Hopkins were world class. We did not expect that and were pleasantly surprised. The Paddlehouse on property was very good and even cooked up the fish we caught. But it’s very worth it step out into Hopkins to find the local eateries! Ellas, Driftwood, La Tratorria, Thongs…You will not be disappointed! Overall, we loved it and we will be back!

2/10 Poor

Roaches - Big and Small
The Lodge’s pics look nice, but it needs a lot of work. We stayed in the Hibiscus villa. There were roaches throughout the room. Also, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant (Paddle House). One night during dinner the biggest roach crawled on my feet underneath the table. One of the servers stomped on the roach and kicked it outside. The hotel restaurant food is good, but you won’t want to eat there with roaches. People don’t pay to vacation with roaches. Please note their sister properties, The Colonial & Almond Beach share the same restaurant. There were also a number of issues at check-in. The room didn’t have two queens as confirmed prior to our arrival, the phone and television didn’t work, the door lock wasn’t functioning properly, and the windows wouldn’t open. My mom was actually stuck in the room because of the broken door lock. I couldn’t get her out. With the telephone not working and the windows not opening, this could have been very problematic. We spent the first night, dealing with hotel maintenance to get everything fixed. They were able to get my mom out. The villa’s AC didn’t seem to work so well in the master bedroom. The villa needs better lighting. It’s way too dim. And please put a knob or handle on the closer door (very simple). Edwin, the bartender, was especially helpful. Shakira tried to be somewhat helpful too. Chanel was not helpful at all. The hotel has potential, but it needs to be exterminated, updated, & more helpful management.

8/10 Very good

Our room was great but it rained heavily twice and it was coming in through the patio doors, front door and a window and down the wall. We used every towel to soak it up. Did tell the front after the rain stopped and they took the wet towels and gave me a mop. I complained and they immediately sent someone else over to clean. Food was great but room service trays were rarely collected. Staff was friendly and overall we had a nice time.

10/10 Exceptional

Our Deluxe Suite was absolutely stunning! The entire staff was welcoming, hospitable and made our stay very comfortable. Chef Rahim's menu was creative and the food was always fresh. We could eat Ceviche every day! In face, I think we did! The excursions are a MUST if you want to really see the country. So glad we splurged for the Zip Lining/ATV Waterfall Tour. Unforgettable! Shout out to Shakira for being a Rockstar manger, Rudy for the wonderful service at the bar and Andy for our daily meal service. Will be recommending Jaguar Reef for years to come! Can't wait to go back. R J
