Belizean Dreams is a Belize all inclusive resort featuring luxury private villas situated on the beautiful Almond Beach, which is on the Caribbean coast. This intimate hotel is furnished with casual elegance and provides first class service in the heart of one of the most pristine places on Earth. Beautiful Belize in Central America is one of the youngest countries in the world. Formerly British Honduras, it gained its independence in 1981 and is making its mark as a gorgeously exotic holiday destination for discerning travelers from around the world.

Staying at the Belizean Dreams

Sleep well at the Belizean Dreams

Only nine stand alone beachfront villas are set among a landscape of palm trees and hibiscus plants, so the resort is small and feels very personal. This is not a big complex, there’s one bar and one restaurant and that’s all you’re going to need. Each of the suites faces the stunning Caribbean Sea and is only a few steps away from the crystal blue waters. You can soak up the sun at the beds around the pool or on the beach while sipping the house cocktail — a ‘mosquito bite’ from the hotel’s beach tiki bar. If you are traveling with a larger party with a family or for a wedding perhaps, then the villas can be divided into one, two, or three bedrooms each with its own private bath. All rooms are large and airy, have lovely tiled bathrooms, air conditioning and even a TV. The view from your window will beat any channel you can tune in to!

Tours available from the hotel

Beach view from the room

The Belizean Dreams Resort in Hopkins Village is in a really good central location for making the most of all this beautiful little country has to offer. You can do seaside and jungle in the space of a few hours in this diverse landscape. There are lots of breathtaking ancient Mayan temples in the jungle to explore here inland and the second biggest barrier reef in the world just out to sea. The Belizean Dreams offers a variety of tours that use experienced local guides and there is something to suit everyone. Any tours not listed as a scheduled tour can be booked separately from the all inclusive package but there is so much to do here that you should not miss the opportunity to further explore this tropical paradise.

Into Hopkins Village

Fried Jacks for breakfast

No stay at the Belizean Dreams Resort would be complete without a foray into the nearby Hopkins Village, which gives you a true flavour of the way the local population live here. The hotel is about a mile down an unpaved road so you can walk into the village, borrow beach bikes — which are great fun — or book a golf cart for a couple of hours. The village has lots of little restaurant shacks and quirky little shops selling local arts and crafts to browse around. You will find the locals very friendly indeed, and quite happy to chat to you and help you find what you are looking for. We stopped at a little road side stall for a snack of hot fried Jacks, which are like a cross between a pancake and a donut and are quite delicious. We were taken up a few stairs to a brightly painted balcony and told it was the VIP suite! Hopkins Junction, which is the end of the road at the entrance to the village is where you can catch the bus to other local destinations if you want to travel further afield independently.

Enjoy your Belizean Dreams

Everything here is very laid back with a Caribbean style culture, and The Belizean Dreams resort in Hopkins welcomes everyone from singles, to families, friends and honeymooners. The super friendly and attentive staff can organise everything from a dive package to a wedding for you. You’ll find yourself called by your first name throughout your stay, and you will definitely feel very much at home. There are special deals in the low season, which make it a good time to travel, and less people too! Hopkins was voted the Friendliest Village in Belize by Belize First Magazine and is the #1 Cultural Destination throughout the country of Belize. I first saw Belize featured in pop video years ago and thought, “Where is that? It looks amazing — I’d love to go there!”. I wasn’t disappointed.
