Certificate of Excellence
Certificate of Excellence
Beaches and Dreams combines the three elements of beach, food and adventure we believe makes for a great vacation. Every one of our 11 rooms is within 100 feet of the ocean, 8 are ocean-front, and our Sea Bar is the best party on the beach. Our fine-dining restaurant, The Barracuda, has a long culinary history, stemming from the original owner of the resort, chef, Tony Marsico. Finally, our guests can depart for any adventure, from diving and snorkeling to visiting the Maya ruins of Xunanatunich right from our adventure office Amped Coffee and Tours or our busy pier, both located at the resort.

My family and I stayed here in the Scarlett Macaw Cabana. It was wonderful. There is no AC in the cabana, but it wasn't missed. They have fans, it is comfortable and I've never slept better. The cabanas and the hotel are steps away from the beautiful beach. We walked the beach

Hotel's Favourite
We just returned from having one of our most enjoyable holidays EVER at Beaches and Dreams...The accommodations we stayed in were remarkable close the beaches ie steps away and we could stroll to the restaurant in the early morning, grab a coffee and sit on the veranda of our

We stayed in a family room (with bunk bed for the children) in the hotel which was extremely comfortable for our family of 4. Perhaps I did expect a bit more for the high season price we paid. This however is what I’ve come to learn about Belize and why I wouldn’t try to achieve

How is the snorkeling off the beach?
I'm not sure. They offer a snorkeling tour which is what we did. They took us out on a boat into the ocean & I thought it was great!

Yes there is some hiking involved and stairs on each platform. You can take as much time as you need and take it slow. They have rest stops. When I went there were very young children and older folks as well. Guides were very helpful. Went out of Beaches and Dreams. Hope you get to try it, so much fun!

We don't usually included drinks and lunch in our packages, since our guests are often out on adventures all day, so it doesn't make economic sense for them. We can always quote a package including these things though.

We have a lot of trips that would be great for kids of that age. If you just use the custom package request form on our website and note the ages of your children, we'll design something perfect for you!

All inclusive meaning food and drinks?
Breakfast and dinner were included in our package. The menu has lots of options and there were always 4-5 specials as well, usually fresh fish dishes. The restaurant is closed for lunch but the beach bar has pizza and kabobs. We rode bikes into town for lunch - gave us a chance to try local dishes. Alcohol drinks were not included but not expensive either. I don't think there was a charge for coffee or soft drinks. Our package included several excursions as well as the short airplane ride to major airport.

"There are no bad room in this resort."
"Recommend a room in the hotel, cabanas don't have AC, WIFI was sketchy at best."
"The Sea Turtle room is great for kids because it opens up directly to the pool."
"Stay in the hotel (not cabanas) if you need quiet to sleep and want air conditioning."
"We stayed in the small cavanah but there is also a another six room accommodation which is set up for families"
US$235 - US$295 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
