Sea Dreams is set at the end of the island, near the 'spit'. This means it is by the only area on caye caulkner where the sea is truly turquiose with not much seaweed.
When we arrived we were greeted by Anna, the lady on reception, with a large smile. We were after 2 rooms, and even though we were out of tourist season there were only 2 rooms left!. Whilst talking to Anna she offered that if we did not want to have breakfast or air con that we could have the rooms cheaper, as I was always after a baragin. She did not have to offer us these options, but kindly did so to make the rooms cheaper.
The rooms were lovely, very stylish in decor, high comfortable beds, TV, and proper fresh coffee for the machine in your room, along with free water bottles.
In addition Anna was more than helpful with respect to trying to find out trips for us - diving and snorkelling, and always greeted us with a smile and a hello. Her customer service was fantastic, and you felt at ease the moment we got there.
Sea dreams is a great hotel in a great setting and I would recommend it to travellers who don't mind paying a tiny nit extra for a great room and setting (& free bicycle use :-))
- 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
