We initially booked their sister resort, Hopkins Bay, for a one week stay to celebrate my 54th Birthday. Upon arrival we were given an option of staying at Hopkins Bay or Belizean Dreams. Since the two resorts share a common reception desk located at Belizean Dreams, we decided to stay there. "Boy" was that a great decision! We've stayed at fine resorts all over the world and Belizean Dreams exceeded our expections for a luxury resort in its class. The grounds were immaculate; manicured lawns filled with tropical plants indigenous to the region. Just as you gaze with amazement at the grounds, then appear the golden sands which were being gently caressed by the sparkling waters of the Atlantic. It was at that moment that we realized the resort was appropriately named "Belizean Dreams".
The two story villas are quite spacious with hardwood floors and ceilings, ceiling fans, air conditioning, traditional rattan funishings, and colorful Mayan textiles and tapestries. The oversized bathroom was beautifully tiled with twin handpainted porcelain sinks. Our spacious second floor balcony gave us a direct view of the beach, ocean, pool, and grounds. It was so picturesque.
The staff were extremely proficient and quite professional. Prior to our arrival, Felina the Reservations Manager, arranged our transfers and pick-up from the Dangriga Airport. The ride from Dangriga to the resort takes about 30 minutes. Upon arriving at the resort we were welcomed by Shawn who checked us in and showed us to our villa. In route to our villa we were greeted by Jesse from the restaurant bar who presented us with some refreshing rum drinks, which were "right on time". This was the beginning of what turned out to be a wonderful week in paradise.
We would later get to meet and interact with other staff. Ernesto, the Head Concierge was a wealth of information on Belize, Hopkins Village; the nearby village, and the cultures of the region. He was also great at recommending local restaurants, of which we visited three ( Innis, Chef Rob, and King Casava). We had delicious meals at all of them including the restaurant at the resort. Mariano, the award winning bartender, made exceptional drinks! Especially, his signature Orange Blossom...the Pina Colada was great as well. He gave us exceptional service.
On our first day there, the weather was a little cooler than we had antipated but during the remaining six days the weather was excellent and we spent most of our time at the beach.
We will definity return to Belizean Dreams because the resort highly lives up to it name. We highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation with no distractions.
