For my 50th birthday, my boyfriend told me to "pick any place you wanna go" as your gift. I've always wanted to go to Belize and after some on-line researching, I chose Hamanasi Resort. It was beautiful and everything we expected and more. The moment we arrive we were immediately escorted to the outdoor dining area and had lunch. The food was excellent as was the service. The staff makes sure they know your name and are always friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed every meal outside in the beautiful weather, which was in the high 80's and breezy. We stayed two nights in the beach house, which was beautiful, then four nights in a tree house. I do recommend the tree house because when do you ever get to say you've stayed in a tree house?. There are no TVs in the rooms, but who cares, and no internet service unless you're in the main house or nearby...We enjoyed a few activities like zip lining, snorkeling, and one day we rented a dune buggy and drove around Hopkins. We found a local restaurant/bar in Hopkins called Driftwoods. We had some drinks and pizza on the beach and went swimming. We didn't want every day to be filled with activities because we also wanted to relax. We had a couple days when we just relaxed by the infinity pool, napped in beach hammocks, and ate/drank. It was heaven. We really loved it and would highly recommend this resort. We went April 20, 2014 for one week.
