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.

Wow. That was an EPIC Beaches and Dreams story! I was reliving this with you the whole time! We're so glad we could give your family their first taste of a foreign country. I've shared this with the entire team, and they loved it as much as I did. Thank you SO much for taking the time to write this up and maybe someday we'll see you again!

I found this place on Trip Advisor and I am so glad I did. The resort is small, and tucked away in a quiet stretch of beach that still has some amenities within walking distance (a few restaurants, bars). If you want to go farther, bikes are available or golf carts can be

We had never been to Belize before and we were looking to stay away from the big resort type place. We wanted to be active with excursions and some down time mixed in. Ryan planned a perfect week for our group. We were torn about staying 1/2 of our time in the jungle and 1/2

When we first decided to travel to Belize for our winter getaway we wanted to find a more personal place to stay than the usual big resorts - found Beaches and Dreams online and it fit what we were searching for - a family owned place - our cabana on the beach was perfect for us

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.

"All of the hotel rooms have a seaside view, and we never heard other guests when we were in our room."
"Best views in the Hotel, third floor"
"The private balcony, view, size and convenience of mini-frig made the small added cost of an upper hotel room well worth it."
"Read the information about each room. There are pro's and con's to each."
"There are no bad room in this resort."
