“Unbelievable hotel & Even better staff”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

A buddy of mine and I just got back from a four night stay at the sea dreams. We had read the good reviews, but still didn't know what to expect since it was our first trip to the island.

First off about the island.... There is nothing better than being picked up by our cab, which was a golf cart. No cars on the island except the delivery truck or the tractor dropping off and delivering the beer & recyclables. People were very friendly and the food was great. If you like fresh seafood, there is no better. We ended up eating at Rose's three nights in a row. Fresh lobster cooked on the grill, fresh fish, and fresh stone crab. Makes me want to go back for a fourth night. The lizard was fun, and the drinks were cold.

Now the Sea Dreams.... We were welcomed very cordially as we checked in and shown to our rooms. The rooms were clean and the ac was very cold. They had set us up for 3 full days of fishing with Ken (best guide on the island). Ken picked us up each morning at the dock at the end of the hotel on time and ready to fish. And fish we did!!!! We caught tons of permit, some bonefish, and more permit. I am glad we brought some high end tackle gear, because those fish put them to the test. I can't say enough good things about Ken and his ability to put us on fish. Plus he was a cool guy to talk to.

Each morning we went upstairs for an excellent homemade breakfast and fresh squeezed juice. The pico de gallo was the best tasting, freshest I have ever had. And that is saying a lot since I live in Texas.

At the end of each day as we came in, there were kids having fun and swimming at the dock which was neat and very friendly to see. Our last day of fishing, we decided to grab a cooler full of beer and hop in the water, listen to some music, and enjoy the sunset. Haywood (the owner) was hanging out with his family in the water and came over and shared some beer and good conversations with us. It was real interesting to hear how he got started on the island plus the in's & out's of living in another country. He greeted us each afternoon as the boat came in and asked about our day. Once again, just first class all the way around!!!

We are already planning our next fishing trip to the island next memorial day weekend, and we are 100% staying at the sea dreams and will request Ken as our guide again.

If you come to Caye Caulker and don't stay at the Sea Dreams, then you are doing yourselves a disservice!!! Thanks again for the great time!!!

Next to the split we found this great hotel at a quiet location. The service was excellent, one of the best we've ever had. You really feel welcome and valued. Clean rooms, charming hotel with a large tree in the centre. The rooms are comfortable and a (bit) colonial.
Also the included breakbast with fresh juices was great as were the amenities (free bike usage, wifi, dock with snorkling masks and beach towels, etc.)
We've enjoyed every minute here and highly recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing stay at Caye Caulker.

Stayed at Sea Dreams for a week late july - early august and it was absolutely wonderful. Stopped at just about every other hotel/resort/hostel on the island and was just about to settle before we made it to sea dreams. Management was exceptional - could not have been any more accommodating. They made the resort feel like home. I highly highly suggest anyone visiting caye caulker hit up this resort. Oh, and they also have free bikes which is a huge plus! Thanks again sea dreams -Scott&Nicola!

My wife and I stayed two nights at SeaDreams this past August. We enjoyed everything about the hotel from the delicious breakfast, the two for one drinks, the location close to shopping and the split, the free bike use, unlimited water refills and Anna who helped us with all of our questions. She personally made our introduction to Belize a wonderful experience. We truly felt at home. The upper deck was a great place to relax, swing, take in the sights and have a snack, breakfast or a cold drink. Thank you so much for the excellent hospitality. Mike and Molly

We stayed with Sea Dreams for seven nights. It was very clean and the rooms were adequate. The staff was upbeat and very helpful. They recommended great places to eat, tour companies, and they also always made sure we had a ride when needed. We were blow away by Aida's breakfasts, and were disappointed when we had to miss out due early morning dives/activities. We hope to come back and visit sooner than later!

Sea Dreams was AMAZING. So knowledgeable, helpful - and clean. I got to Sea Dreams after spending a few days in the jungle and getting eaten alive by mosquitos. It was so nice to stay in a clean room with an air conditioner! And the best part was that they helped my now-fiancé propose to me! I would 100% stay here again.

My family stayed at sea dreams for 2 weeks in July 2013. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite that was perfect for us and our 3 sons. Upon arrival we were informed that the AC wasn't working and if repair was impossible , we would be moved to a house. The AC was fixed and everything was great. Ida made fresh breakfast every morning. ( even remembering that one of our boys did not eat eggs) pancakes, fry jacks, French toast, and breakfast burritos- yum! We were always well fed. Anna at the front desk was great , knowledgable and friendly. The hotel is located at the "split", a popular swimming area on the island. The kids swam there and also off of the dock on the backside. They saw sea slugs, star fish , and barracuda. Another cool thing about this spot is that you can go in a canoe or walk 4 blocks over to Captain Ish's house and feed the Tarpon. They are HUGE and will take sardines (sold in his yard) right out of your hand. We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Dreams. It is in a great location and the service from the staff is top notch.

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
