Unbelizeable experience

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: Staff will do anything to make your stay the best ever. This included arranging a private tour, and making a special Birthday cake.
Cons: Need "do not disturb" signs so housekeeping doesn't come in the room super early on sleep in day.
Location: Reef fishing, snorkeling, diving, Myan ruins, zip lines, cave tubing etc... Experiencing the local culture of Hopkins was unforgettable.
Friendliest most accomodating staff. Went above and beyond to make my best friend's Birthday extra special. Had a fantastic time and will for sure be coming back.

Wonderful week

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: The staff, especially, was very personable and made us feel welcome, from arrival to departure.
Cons: I can't think of anything.
Location: Southern Belize has lots to do - world class diving and snorkeling, visits to various nature preserves, ocean fishing, tours of Mayan ruins.
My wife and I spent a week at Belizean Dreams recently. We enjoyed every part of the experience. The villas are beautifully built and appointed, with interiors and furniture all made of mahogany. The setting is very pretty with a clean sand beach a few steps from our villa. The food was delicious and prepared fresh for every meal, cooked to order. The staff, especially, were great, from the cleaning folks to the kitchen staff, to the bartenders. David, the manager, was always available and very accommodating. We didn't take advantage of all the excursions offered, but enjoyed what we did choose to do. We very much appreciated the way resort staff had things organized, including transportation from and to the airport at Dangriga. We are hoping to schedule a return trip with our children and grandchildren.

Very pleasant resort

Posted Mar 29, 2014
Pros: comfortable and staff were awesome.
Cons: maybe a tv in the rooms, but I think I was glad there wasn't one. my golf cart broke down and i switched to a bike my chain came off twice.
Location: jungle zipline/waterfall rappel. Mayan ruins were 2 or 3 hours away. we paid a cabbie 200 to drive us to Xunanpunich and then went into Guatemala
Resort was clean and well kept. grounds crews were always doing things. the staff were always friendly and extremely helpful. was windy so no mosquitoes. I glad I went but don't think I would go again. more expensive there than i thought it would be including buying from locals. The locals are very friendly . be prepared to wave a lot as you ride a bike or walk down the roads. :) You should know that from belize city you will have to fly to Dangriga on a local airplane. we took Maya airlines for 275 for both of us round trip. Then you must be picked up in Dangriga to be taken to Hopkins. The hotel wasn't there for us we took a cab there. there are a lot of things to do so have fun!

Anniversary Delight

Posted Mar 8, 2014
Pros: Everything. The staff. The accommodations. The food. The variety of activities.
Cons: Keep working on paving the Hopkins Road.
Location: On the beach about a mile from Hopkins. Snorkeling. Fishing. Swimming. Resort shuttles to cave tubing, jungle zip line, Mayan ruins.
Off the beaten track, the resort is staffed by the most gracious and attentive people we've ever met. From check in to checkout, our experience was a cascade of delightful tours and activities punctuated with days of ease in the deck chairs on the beach with tropical drinks looking out to their barrier reef islands. It is right on the beach and you'll sleep to the sound of the gentle surf and awake to the birds each morning.

Wonderful staff, felt like a home away from home!

Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: The staff!!! They are so friendly and truly solicitous. The laid back vibe was so comfortable, you felt at home right away.
Cons: The meals were very leisurely, usually a 15-20 min wait for food to arrive. The room was a little worn. Access to a washer would have been great
Location: Birding, kayaking down on Sittee River, snorkeling excursions, lovely walking/ biking, village of Hopkins, Guafina drumming, hiking Bocawina falls
We went to Belize with our 16 year old daughter over February vacation week. Everyone had a great time and our daughter is already planning our next trip back! The resort is small and an oasis of beautiful beach, lovely grounds with outstanding solicitous staff. We stayed in a two bedroom villa with a kitchen- living room area. Could easily have accommodated a family of 4-6. The wood furnishings were beautiful. The kitchen and bathrooms were a little worn but very clean with extra mini- fridges and coffee makers in each bedroom. The tile in the bathrooms was beautiful. There was ample storage places for clothing and personal items, comfortable robes, air conditioning and ceiling fans. The large glass doors in the fronts of the rooms looked out into the ocean and could be opened wide to catch sea breezes. The resort provides free use of bikes and it is a lovely area to bike around. We got up early every morning to go birding. Saw toucans and parrots within a 20 min bike ride. Loved the sunsets over the mountains in the evening (5 min stroll off the resort). Felt very safe to walk and bike around the area.

Great Time...Friendly staff

Posted Nov 28, 2013
Pros: Quiet and clean
Location: The excursions and tours. You can do all you want or nothing at all!
Prepare yourself for an adventure. Getting there is half the fun beginning with the airline trip from Belize City to Dangriga and the bumpy ride to the resort. We were treated as friends from the welcome drink with Jose to the parting goodbye to Naomi and the rest of the staff. The excursions were great and Bernardo was the best guide you could ask for with his personal insight and sense of humor. The food at the restaurant was excellent and not overpriced. We had the villa stocked with some food and beverages before our arrival and found that to be a great option. The resort is clean and quiet and the beach could not be better. Bring plenty of bug spray because you are close to the jungle. The excursion to cave tubing/zipline was great but if I was to do it again I would opt for the longer cave tubing experience. If you enjoy the zip line there is a longer one closer to the resort. The barrier reef snorkeling experience to the reef and coco plum was great and Chrispin was super. The drive to the mayan ruins is long so be prepared. The food on all our excursions was exceptional. We are already planning to go back and stay longer next time. If you are looking for the pampered self absorbed typical vacation then stay home or go somewhere else! If you want to experience the real Belize and the people of the country then this is recommended. Did I mention that Jose at the bar ROCKS!

Posted Oct 5, 2013
Pros: staff was wonderful. our villa was perfect -close to water with a wonderful view
Cons: Drive up appeal needs to be greatly improved. you don't get a very good feeling about the resort when you first get there.
Location: tours were great. need to advertise spa availability. we didn't even know we could get messages until the last day we were there.
hotel , bar and restaurant staff were all excellent. friendliest people ever. went above and beyond to answer all our questions and needs.
