My wife and I (mid-30s) spent 4 nights to end our time in Belize at Sea Dreams in Caye Caulker, in a Courtyard Room very recently. We really loved our time there. The staff are really wonderful - very pleasant, helpful, and laid back (in a good way!). Our included morning breakfasts with Aida on the rooftop were an amazing way to start the day.
The courtyard rooms are very basic and a little dark, but after you settle in, you begin to feel right at home. They were clean, and the bed very comfortable.
The highlights of our time at Sea Dreams came from everything else there: the roof top for breakfasts and relaxation in the mid afternoon, the great staff and service, the terrific location, the available bikes (for free!), and the seaside dock. We watched the sunset 4 nights in a row from the dock, and while a bit like "Groundhog Day" (heron fishing int he same spot, same birds flying overhead, same people having a quiet evening swim), it was perfect! And, it was so lovely a couple we met decided to exchange their vows and get married there - it was beautiful!
We hope to be back before long and will definitely call on Sea Dreams! And, it is great to know there are caring owners who give so much as well to the island with the school! Thank you!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sea Dreams Hotel is a family-run boutique hotel on the quaint island of Caye Caulker. We are located at the north end of the village which affords a three-sided view of the Caribbean Sea. Guests quickly become part of the Sea Dreams family: eating breakfasts with Iris on our thatch-covered rooftop, picking up fishing tips from Haywood on our dock, planning excursions with Anna, Stephanie or Kelly learning about island education with Heidi, enjoying impeccable housekeeping services from Maria Elena & Melanie, or enjoying a tropical drink with Celia at our Banyan Tree Bar. Our dock, located on the leeward edge of the split, is the entry into a unique slice of paradise: perfectly clear and calm, chest-deep, turquoise water with a white sandy bottom. Every evening, guests watch the sun melt into these waters and cast pastel shades across the skies. When guests are not diving, snorkeling, fishing, kite boarding, or touring Mayan ruins, they relax at the hotel with a drink at the bar, a massage at the spa, a book in a hammock, or a canoe ride to feed the local Tarpon. Accommodations range from intimate courtyard rooms to one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, cabana, and home. Amenities include free bicycles, canoe, hot breakfast, WIFI, AC, cable TV, bottled water and snorkeling gear. ... more less
