There are some great places in San Pedro, but if you want a Placencia-like experience, you might also look at Hopkins. Hamanasi there is terrific, with deluxe rooms, honeymoon suites and neat little treehouse suites, too, a bit back off the beach. The pool here is one of the best in all of Belize, and the food is good and not overpriced. Hopkins is a friendly, interesting Garifuna village. There was only a little damage in Hopkins from the storm -- two restaurants built on stilts over the sea were washed away, and Hamanasi lost its dock, but nothing like Placencia. Hamanasi is run by a hip young couple and their Russian-born cats.
