Reviewed 22 October 2013

My husband and I had never been to Belize, and went there for our honeymoon. Tony offered me a 6 day package deal I could not refuse. Hopkins is a small town that is just starting to see the impact of tourism. We purposely stayed in Hopkins to avoided the touristy islands, and got exactly what we were looking for. Beaches and Dreams provides a breathtakingly beautiful quiet beach, a laid-back town within biking distance, fabulous food, and excellent excursions of snorkeling, hiking, and zip lining. Tony planned everything for us - all we had to do was fly to Belize City. Tony and Angela were magnificent hosts from beginning to end, and we enjoyed chatting with them during Happy hour. Angela served us a huge hot breakfast every morning, which included locally made yogurt, local hot sauce, and local fruit. She also made sure we had what we needed for our day. Angela's pastry chef skills were on par with Tony's scrumptious dinners. Homemade cheesecake, flan, or a caramel chocolate tart for dessert followed his deliciously prepared fresh-caught seafood. Our package included an 8 course Tapas meal - a great sampling of Tony's expertise. I would recommend Beaches and Dreams to anyone. It was a fabulous honeymoon - just the right mix of relaxation and adventure.

Room Tip: I would get a room that received the ocean breezes directly. There is so much to do and the beach is...

We spent seven days at Beach and Dreams for our honeymoon. It was an amazing week. The in country flights and ride from Dangriga Airport were great and on time. From the time we arrived, it was very personal, from the nightly and morning meals ( which were amazing) to the excursions, each were perfectly timed and personalized.

We did a hiking excursion in the jungle (which was awesome!!!) and a half day snorkeling trip. Both excursions were just me and my wife with the tour guide. Very amazing and very personal.

Beaches and dreams was right on the beach and we went swimming in the warm waters off the pier. Very relaxing. Tony and Angela made sure that our daily schedule was always what we wanted and what suited us best.

The entire staff at Beaches and Dreams was amazing too. From Charles (the Waiter in the restaurant), to Abraham (the Hiking Tour Guide) .
Angela and Tony really know how to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. We plan on returning soon in the future.

Thank you again Beaches and Dreams

We can't say enough about our stay at Beaches and Dreams! All of the other reviews basically sum it up! We bought the all-inclusive package and were treated like royalty! The food was hands-down amazing! Daily happy hour was a hit! We went on some great tours to include cave-tubing, Xunantunich, snorkeling, Sittee River Tour, and Zip-lining at Bocawina. The accommodations (Toucan room - beach-side) were very comfortable. We snorkeled right off the dock, kayaked (free use of kayaks), and used the bicycles (included in stay) to ride into town. Shannon was our driver who drove us to all of our excursions. Douglas was the best waiter at the Barracuda Bar and Grill. We can't wait to return!

We took visiting friends from Alaska to Beaches and Dreams last week and spent four wonderful days there, went swimming in the ocean, enjoyed the quiet surroundings, and had the wonderful dishes chef Tony prepared. It is located a bit outside of the village of Hopkins, but you can use their free bikes or it's a really short drive by car, which we did once to buy gifts from local artists. My friends also did some (free) kayaking and went on the birding river tour. They came back enthusiastically with loads of pictures and had a great time. We live in another district and love going there for a change of scenery and especially for the absolutely delectable food at the Barracuda Bar and Grill. Tony and Angela made every effort to make out stay special and we sure look forward going there again in a few months. The rooms are clean and have nice furniture, the showers are hot and the beds comfortable - what more can one ask for?

We absolutely loved beaches & dreams! We stayed in 3 different places while in Belize, Placencia, Hopkins & San Pedro (ambrigris caye) and beaches and dreams eas our favorite. Very beautiful and Tony & Angela were wonderful. Great food, great view! Tony arranged two of our day trips that we're great. An all day fishing, snorkeling trip which was a blast and a day Mayan ruin trip. Tony booked our flight for us to our next destination and provided our transportation to Dangriga to the airport. We stayed at Beaches & Dreams 4 nights and wished we would have stayed longer there and shorter @ the other places. They helped us get transportation for the day so we could go to town and check out Hopkins.
All and all we had a wonderful stay at Beaches & Dreams and if we were to go back to Belize we would definitely stay there! Thank you Tony and Angela for a great experience!

Too short a stay at Beaches & Dreams, which is the perfect place for those wanting to avoid the larger resorts in Hopkins. We were just there for two days, but wish it could have been longer. In a gorgeous spot, just as beautify as the pictures suggest, and Tony and Angela were wonderful hosts. Loved Tony's dinners and Angela's desserts. And spent a fun morning playing with Ruger the beach dog.

Room Tip: Ask for the room closest to the beach. Spectacular view.

Our third time staying at Beaches and Dreams and we feel like family. The rooms are very, very comfortable, the food is amazing (always)....Angela makes "to die for" desserts!!! Tony and Angela know everyone so if you need something....if they don't have it, they know who does. Tony also puts together nice day trips. They do know how to make you feel special and like an old friend.
