Ransoms Seaside Garden

On the golden-sand beach of Hopkins by the Sea, Ransoms SeaSide Garden offers a two-bedroom, two-bathroom Main Beach House with a full veranda overlooking the seashore across a wide beach with a seaside shower. Having opened in 1980, this was Hopkin's first hotel and it offers a very Belizean place to stay.

With convenient access to a pretty good range of outdoor possibilities, those choosing Ransoms Seaside Garden won't ever find a shortage of things to do. Among the opportunities offered here are bicycling and kayaking, but just about everyone should find something to their taste.

Positioned near the middle of Hopkins, Ransoms Seaside Garden welcomes tourists who are thinking about basing their vacation in this village or an adjacent area. It's south-southwest of the center of Dangriga.


The Main House sits above a full open-to-the sea lobby and the Garden Room. This room sleeps two and opens to both the lobby and the garden. The Cabana, a wooden two-room structure, is self-contained and complete with a kitchen, cable, and private parking. An aged tropical garden in the old Creole style separates the two structures with a parkway, breezeway and courtyard.

Ransoms Seaside Garden has a total of just 2 units, which explains why we classify it as a very small property. Accordingly, it's a nice choice for vacationers who enjoy a unique and personalized atmosphere. This guest house has earned a rating of one and a half stars, based on numerous measures, including overall quality, amenities, and service.
