The staff here is AMAZING!!!! So personable and they work hard to ensure a very pleasant stay for their guest. The food is very very good and the restaurant is charming. The pictures of the guest rooms do not do the rooms justice! I stayed in the Santa Maria room and it was lovely! The shower is wonderful! I highly recommend Almond Beach Resort!

Amazing spot in Hopkins, Belize

Pros: Everything - location, staff, cleanliness, safety
Cons: n/a
We stayed at Almond Beach (which is connected to Jaguar Reef and has shared amenities) for 6 nights and we couldn't have made a better decision. The resort had the MOST amazing staff and we felt so welcomed every single day we were there. The employees seem to work long stretches of shifts in a row (many of them live in neighboring villages as we learned from a discussion with Juan, the bartender) and we felt like we really got to know several people as they were working each day we were there. The rooms are fabulous with everything we would have wanted/needed and the resort is directly on the sandy beach so you can open your front door to the sound of the waves each and every morning. They have free non-motorized rentals including kayaks, snorkeling gear, bicycles which we took full advantage of during our stay. It's about a 10 minute bike ride from downtown Hopkins, a very small town where you're able to get a sense for the culture of the area. Try Innies restaurant and be adventurous and taste the local Garafuna dishes. The Hudut tastes like heaven (but it's served as a whole fish!)

Great rooms on the beach

Pros: on the beach. no extra charges to use beach items such as inner tubes, kayak, paddle board etc
Cons: Excusions should have an explanation on what to bring ( eg towels, bug sprays, footware ). Not a lot to do unless you go out on excursions
Location: Location was in an area which is in an area that is in infant stages of development. Not much shopping nearby or entertainment like music, dancing.
Great place with friendly staff who were always ready to address any issue right away. No excuses.

Low key, beach-front vacation

Pros: Loved just about everything, especially how laid back the vibe was! Marianne was fabulous gave us a tour and answered all of our questions!
Cons: My only complaint was the mattress was a little hard for my taste!
Location: Right in Hopkins Bay, Belize - short boat trip to excursions; snorkeling, diving, swimming, kayaking. Great selections of restaurants nearby.
We only stayed at Almond Beach Resort & Spa for 2 nights, and my only regret is that we did not stay longer! Our suite (Craboo) was spectacular. Roomy, great view, nice hot tub! Pool was great, and beach with hammocks and chaise lounge/palapas were perfect!

Pros: The room was clean and provided every comfort of home. The beds are actually the best we have ever slept on at any resort/hotel.
Cons: nothing
Location: We went snorkeling, zip lining and traveled through the rain forest while in Belize. Absolutely beautiful.
My wife and I had the most amazing experience at Almond Beach. The resort, staff and location are wonderful. There was not a single thing that I could say negative about our vacation and we are already planning our next trip to Almond Beach. The village, Hopkins, close to the resort is small but don't be concerned. Everything you need can be found at one of the several stores. Just ask the resort staff and they will point you in the correct direction.

Fabulous stay!

Staff is attentive to our needs and went above and beyond to make our stay very enjoyable. Rooms are clean and spacious. Food was very good and dining room was clean and service very good. Day trips were excellent but a little pricy.

Pros: The sand was well kept, the staff was friendly, the food was good, and the pool was nice. Our room was really nice as well.
Location: Biking to town was fun. The roads were extremely bumpy, like nothing ever seen, but that added to the experience. Should have gone early so not so hot
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the resort very much! All 5 of us loved it!
