We stayed in the "Cool Spot" cabin on the beach. We felt like we stumbled on to a magical wonderland. Our trip to Belize and Guatemala was full of wonder and amazement, but staying at the Kismet Inn was our top highlight. We liked being off the "beaten track" of Hopkins village - but with access to bikes so we...

Hi Jessica, Thanks for your review! So glad you enjoyed your time at Kismet Inn!! It is a amazing experience to find Kismet. Just far enough away from the middle of the village for uninterrupted relaxation, but close enough to pedal all over and see the local culture in Hopkins. Tricia is a wonderful hostess, and there is always someone...

Traveling in a group of 3, 50+ ladies, the Kismet was a perfect - just by chance discovery. The original place we had reserved had given our lodging to another group, so we were referred to Tricia at the Kismet. Meeting her was like rediscovering an old friend. Her food is fresh and fabulous! We stayed in a 5 bed...

The accomodation was cosy and perfect, with modern equipments. Felt much closer to the nature, couldn't here the cars and noises from the roads. Within few min ride on a bike you are back to village.

Hi Lilla Z, Thanks so much for your lovely review and photos! Tricia has a way of making you feel like you are home.

Shhh... Don't tell anyone about this place or there will be no chance of going back here. In a 3 week tour, this was the jewel in the crown. Understated casual friendly atmosphere. Superb clean accommodation with excellent views. But the real astonishing surprise is the home cooked meals cooked by the wonderful hostess three times a day whoever is...

My family of 6 adults were on Christmas holiday. Found that many places were closed and just had to keep looking for food! This was Christmas Day, and we were looking for a light meal before dinner that night. Tricia welcomed us and made us some conch fritters that were absolutely fabulous. Actually had pieces of conch and veggies, great...

Although we didn't stay at Kismet Inn, we ate there often. When I walked into Tricia's kitchen I asked for a menu. She simply responded "I am the menu" When she told me how she cooks and that no matter what it would be a "fresh catch" we were sold. We felt like we were going to a friends place...

Kismet Inn is one of those places that makes a great story. The owner, Trish, is a very special woman. A bit chaotic and peculiar but very sweet and caring. She knows you by your first name within minutes. The place looks very nice. A lot of effort was done on small details. The Kismet Inn is located on the...

Hi Kobus, Thanks so much for your review. Tricia is always doing something around Kismet, changing something around, painting, putting up new decorations. She does put in a lot of effort and time making Kismet Inn a special place. There is no place in Hopkins Belize quite like Kismet Inn, with its location right on the beach and the delicious...

My girlfriend and I arrived in Hopkins looking for a reasonably quiet hostel where we could relax for a couple of days.

“.Most rooms are seafront affording all the breeze and sea view you will ever need. Kismet Inn has it's lock box and on arrival guests are encouraged to utilize it at no cost. Guests are told to keep their rooms locked when not occupied to avoid theft which is commonplace worldwide.”
