“Beaches and Dreams Hopkins Belize”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The tranquil Hopkins beach area is a great place to unwind. Tony and Angela, the owners, set a warm tone at Beaches and Dreams, which is a well run, comfortable, beachfront gem. I will return and will urge my family and friends/associates to do the same. Viva Beaches and Dreams!

Room Tip: beachfront rooms--great sea breezes

We did the Living Social deal too, and we had a great time at Beaches & Dreams. The rooms were comfortable—even in June. The lack of air conditioning wasn’t an issue, and bugs weren’t a problem. The location works well whether you want just relaxing time on the beach or something more active—snorkeling, kayaking or riding bikes into Hopkins. Lunch isn’t served, so either get a box lunch or have plans to go elsewhere.

I wanted to have a memorable vacation for our 10th Anniversary and we did at BEACHES AND DREAMS. Tony and Angela have a wonderful place to make that happen. We rented a car at the airport and drove on the nice paved highways (95%) to Beaches and Dreams. Hopkins village was quaint and peaceful.
All excursions were wonderful and Tony handled it all - so all we had to do was show up and have fun. Zip lining (awesome), cave tubing, Mayan ruins tour, snorkeling, fishing and then getting remarried, by the Creole Captain, Walter, in the lagoon with blue luminescent plankton shimmering as the jellyfish school swam by was AMAZING. We went back to Tony's and Angela's Barracuda restaurant for a beautiful dinner and dessert.
Truly a great way to start the next 10 years and more with someone you love.

We were looking for a spot to sit back, relax, and unwind for our vacation. Beaches and Dreams in Hopkins Belize was the ideal place to do it. Beaches and Dreams is a gem of a place in Hopkins Village away from the built up "touristy" areas of Belize where you get a real feel of the beautiful culture of Hopkins Village. We relaxed and read on the gorgeous beach after a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, walked or biked into town to explore, and enjoyed gourmet meals made by the fabulous Tony. You will not be disappointed if you choose Beaches and Dreams!

My new wife and I just spent our honeymoon at Beaches and Dreams this past week and had a great time. I actually scoured TripAdvisor and other sites to check reviews beforehand and based my decision to stay with them off of that as well as the ease of getting ahold of Tony.

We went into our stay knowing what some people may call "fine print details." I feel I should touch upon these just to clarify what people should know since some of the people who were staying there at the same time as us seemed to be unaware of these before booking their stay.

There are no TVs in the rooms or in the restaurant area.

There is Wifi but it is mostly in the restuarant area.

There is no air conditioning.

There is pretty much no night life or anything going on after 9:30pm.

Hopkins is a small town and while there are restaurants and shops they are pretty small and in many cases are like a wing of someone's home that they use for business.

Hopkins and nearby towns, like Dangriga, have the appearance of what they are; a third world country.

Most of the roads are dirt and can be bumpy.

Most excursion type activities are at least a 30-60 minute drive away and can be pricey though Tony gets better rates when possible.

Bugs are plentiful, but that's out of anyone's control. Spray a couple times a day and anytime after you go in the water.

Now that that's out of the way, on to the good.

The rooms are no more than 150 feet from the water and two of them are less than 100 feet.

Even though it was supposed to be the rainy season it never rained during the day.

The beaches are combed multiple times a day and kept clean.

The water is warm and clear.

The rooms are plenty big and cleaned every day, with sheets every other day.

The food is amazing as most people have touched on.

The simpler tours were actually the most fun for us like hiking, fishing and the river tour.

You can take kayaks or bikes out at any point during the day for free.

All of the residents are very friendly and more than happy to tell you about their culture.

You can just relax on a hammock or chair and just hang out all day long.

Tony and Angela are usually busy running the kitchen during the day, but catch them at the end of the night and they are more than happy to talk.


All in all it's a great place to relax and unwind. The country is beautiful, the food is great and the people are very nice. Know what you're getting into first and it's a great time. If you are expecting a luxury resort then you might be disappointed, but Beaches and Dreams is a great place to stay.

LOVED our time here! The owner Tony was beyond helpful, friendly & informative while the rooms were beautifully decorated & had a great view of the ocean :) We couldn't have asked for a better time in Belize with our hosts & is the best B & B in Hopkins! STAY HERE! For the guys, the food is fantastic & they were more than happy to meet your dietary needs. We didn't feel like a nuisance to Tony & Angela, who were genuinely happy to have us, so thank you! Great location, great people, & a fantastic experience

Tony and Angela made our 11 days at their Bed and Breakfast an amazing trip. From the wonderful breakfast in the morning where Angela knew my husband loved the coffee and I needed a Diet Coke which was always ready when we were up to the great staff that worked there making our staycomfortable and peaceful. We had ten nights with them and stayed in two of the rooms, it was bliss hearing the wind blow and the ocean waves crash while we slept. Having the drinking water in the rooms was perfect for us and made sure we were able to get enough each day. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. If looking for an unplugged vacation where Tony can help plan your day trips whether in the jungle or out at sea or we picked a great spot to go and will go back in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Room #2, we stayed in Room #1 and Room #2. Room #1 was great if you wanted to have in the internet...
