“Amazing Trip!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Belizean Dreams was the definition of a dream! Everything about the resort was beautiful. The rooms were spacious and very nice. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. The food was to die for and the service was accomodating and fun to be around. Someone was always there to help and make recommendations if that is what you needed. Overall the trip was a huge success and I have nothing bad to say!!

My boyfriend and I booked our trip for the end of March...or I should say my boyfriend did, the whole trip was a surprise for me from the get-go (little did I know he was planning to propose!). From the time we arrived until the day we left, we had nothing but wonderful things to say about Belizean Dreams. We were greeted by their friendly staff who strived to make our experience the greatest. One of the staff members who drove us to an excursion took the time to go in to the village and look for an underwater camera for us to use on our snorkeling adventure. We had stopped at about five different stores along the way home that day searching for one and had no luck. Then out of the blue, this gentleman (and you'll have to forgive me as I am TERRIBLE at remembering names) went on his own time and with his own money back to town and found one and brought it back. I'm sorry, but I have never been anywhere where the staff has gone so far out of their way to get something so small for us to help make out trip memorable.

Every time we turned around, someone was greeting us, chatting with us, making sure our stay was going well. The beaches were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. The villas were adorable and I LOVED sitting on the porch in the morning with my coffee and just relaxing, listening to the waves. We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Hopkins!!!

Belizean dreams was the epitome of a dream. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food was amazing and the drinks were even better. The rooms are right on the beach with a beautiful view! We couldn't have asked for a better week!

My wife and I made our first trip from Dallas-Fort Worth to Belize last December. We had researched many countries and villages as a potential retirement destination and came upon Hopkins, Belize and the Belizean Dreams property through Expedia. Although our trip was short (5 days) we packed a lot in and our accommodation choice was perfect for our trip into the country of Belize. We rented a car and drove the Hummingbird Highway with perfect directions from the resort website - important because there are not a lot of sign markers or lights after dark. Our room was spacious, clean and the view of the Caribbean was AWESOME! Our villa was STEPS away from the clear, cool waters and the staff was friendly and accommodating. This resort is right on the main beach and a short walk to local restaurants, market, etc. but a bike, golf cart or vehicle makes it easier to navigate the village to take in the sights and the culture of Hopkins. The food and drinks were very good and we definitely enjoyed the pizza at the bar with Jose along with other vacationers during our stay. Janine says to be sure to try the 'Johnny Cakes' at the restaurant!

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 2 and had an amazing view - - we did not see or seek out the fitness center or sp...

My husband and I stayed at the Belizean Dreams and enjoyed it from arrival to departure. The driver was really sweet and informative about the area while driving from the airport to the Resort. When we arrived at the Resort we were greeted with great hospitality and staff was so nice. We were guided to our suite and it was very clean and beautiful. I enjoyed meeting everyone and all were so kind and thoughtful. The food was excellent, the bartenders excellent, the staff excellent. We did the snorkeling tour, our guide was great, we bicycled one day and went on the golf cart another day to explore the area and all the community people we came across were so kind. The kite festival in Hopkins was taking place and we really enjoyed being spectators. My experience was wonderful. I will visit again.

This might be near Hamanasi but they are night and day. I stayed at both hotels and Belizean Dreams was rough. Their customer service was ok but certainly needs work. The restaurant staff was constantly messing up orders and took forever (1 hour +) to deliver a meal. The bartender (Jose) was walking down a beach full of kids smoking marijuana with guests...so not good for families obviously. And finally, I stayed in one of their top rooms and the air conditioning didn't work, the generator didn't work when the electricity went out, they had the adjoining room unlocked so strangers had access to our luggage when we first arrived, and items were missing from the kitchen. The quality of the room just didn't match the cost. And on the last day they stated they couldn't serve us lunch and we had to go three resorts down the beach to eat.

The manager is new so hopefully he'll turn it around. The beach was nice and they had free kayaks to use. If you are a college student that wants to get high, drink average beverages and relax on the beach...this is great. If you are on your honeymoon, with family or above the age of 25....keep away in my opinion. Where Hamanasi is close to a 5-star resort...this is in class with a Motel 6.

Hi Robert,


Allow me a moment of your valuable time to apologize on behalf of the Resort Owner, Manager and Staff for any inconveniences you faced during your one night stay with us. It’s very unfortunate that your stay with us did not leave you with the satisfaction that we have successfully provided to most of our guests.

Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your recommendations very seriously and we are pleased to inform you of the following:

• Our operations team have recently confirmed that the suite you stayed in is presently on our generator system and it is working properly. We will continue to monitor this.

• Since you were originally booked with us for the one-night stay through Hamanasi Resort, they had pre-arranged dinner and breakfast with us on your behalf and had arranged for you to have lunch at another Restaurant, therefore we did not provide you with lunch. However, we apologize for the miscommunication on behalf of the staff member who did not properly inform you.

• We will continue to investigate into the allegations against our bartender as marijuana is considered illegal throughout our entire country.

Being the only Belizean Owned and Managed Resort in Hopkins- Belize, we try to provide all our guests with a true Belizean experience. We will continue to train our new Employees & Management in areas of Customer Service as we strive for excellence.

We hope that in the future you will consider staying with us and giving us the opportunity to show you our improvements and growth.


All the Best,
Management
