After looking at a bunch of other places to stay in the Hopkins area my wife and I decided to choose Beaches and Dreams. Ryan quoted us with everything we needed to stay including ground transportation, food, & drinks! This made it much easier to plan our vacation. Everyone here is down to earth and extremely friendly. We ate at the Barracuda Restaurant pretty much every day and evening. The food was amazing and the specials were so good that I don't think we ever even ordered a regular menue item. There is so much to do in this area of Belize and all of the adventures can be booked right through the office at Beaches and Dreams. We we're able to go SCUBA Diving, fishing, snorkeling, & a hike to Antelope Falls. You could also take the bikes or golf cart for a spin and check out all of the local places.

Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to start. This hotel was absolutely spectacular. The close knit staff was amazing, they picked us up at the airport, greeted us at the hotel, and was there for us throughout the week. Whether to rent snorkeling gear, or fishing poles. To make us amazing meals, climb the tree and get a coconut and chop it for my 15 year old. The food was beyond expectations, each night different specials, that were local and delicious. Our guides on the excursions, we went fishing one day and caught tons of fish off the reef, while the two guides took care of everything. Taught us some tricks. Snorkeling we had Jeremy and Steven, they were careful and ensured we were safe, and also we saw sharks, and sting rays, and floated with the current. Best snorkeling we've ever had. The days we were there were really windy, so we had to make some changes to our day plans and the entire staff made it so easy. We went to the Mayan ruins, and Manny our guide from the resort, was Mayan himself and so passionate about the culture and history. It was such a great learning. The resort is small and dozy, and has every amenity you could want. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. Just absolutely an amazing place. Thanks to Ryan and Jessica (Owners), Francine, Milky, Freddy, Miss P, Jeremy, Steven, Ardette, Manny, Greg P, Josie & Cesar and so many more who made our trip amazing, for my husband and two boys (18 and 15). Can't wait to return.

We stayed in their treehouse, which gave the kids a room to themselves. It was hot but with the fans we stayed cool enough. Service was outstanding, friendly, and helpful. It is a simple resort that offers much adventure and relaxation. Thanks to all the staff!!!

Room tip: Treehouse was great for the family! But no AC which was fine for us!

My grandma and I went to Belize and were nervous about being in an unfamiliar country and beaches and dreams made us feel so welcome! We chose to stay in the hotel room with air conditioning which I would recommend. We did five excursions during our trip including: monkey river tour, horseback riding, seeing the Mayan ruins, going cave tubing and taking a hike to a waterfall in the bocawina Forrest. Francine, who works in the front office at beaches and dreams coordinated all of our activities and arranged for the staff to drive us to our activities and back which was wonderful! The barracuda restaurant was also phenomenal. We are both vegan and they had an entire vegan menu for us to choose from and each night was a great meal. For breakfast our main server at the restaurant, Milky, remembered to set out almond milk for us to add to our coffee and was very accommodating and friendly. Keith and Mani were our drivers most days and had so much knowledge to share about the village and about all the wildlife in the rainforest. Overall it was an amazing trip and I would definitely stay here again.

I cannot say enough good things about Beaches and Dreams resort in Hopkins, Belize. My husband and I spent two weeks of desperately needed vacation with the most lovely hosts and staff on the most beautiful beach that we could’ve hoped for. Everything, from the view to the delicious meals, was perfect. The room was immaculate. The adventures were expertly planned and truly exciting. Every aspect of transportation, from the moment we arrived in Belize City until we left the country, was seamlessly executed. The true beauty of this little gem is the people. The owners have created something special here; a beautiful location, a welcoming environment and attention to detail. The entire staff is an exceptional group of professional, genuinely delightful people. Everyone here went above and beyond to make our experience in Belize perfect. We will be back and we recommend Beaches and Dreams to everyone we know.

Sincerely,
Aaron and Susan Rhay
