This past September my boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway to Belizean Dreams Resort. Nestled in the quaint village of Hopkins, in Belize’s Southern District of Stann Creek, Belizean Dreams Resort offers one of the Best escapes from the hustle and bustle of city life!

My stay there (from start to end) was nothing short of INCREDIBLE!
Upon arrival, we were greeted by the courteous and friendly staff members who quickly got us settled into what would become our home for the weekend.
Our Suite was perfumed by the smell of the beautiful wooden flooring and decor which gave off a cozy, tree house -in-the-woods type of vibe (try to picture a 5-star tree house though). Tall glass doors opened up to the breathtaking view of the pool, the sea, and the perfectly manicured lawn decorated with brightly colored tropical flowers.
The breathtaking view from our suite!
The menu of food and drinks was great! Guests are treated with a complimentary, signature drink upon arrival; it’s called the Mosquito Bite, and it’s a slushy concoction of pure awesomeness! It serves as a great option to cool you off while basking in the sun by the pool side or on the beach (just a few short steps away). And the curry shrimp with white rice, which i had on my first night, was just simply delicious!

Don’t be shy to ask for breakfast in bed! That was my most enjoyed luxury while there. After a long night of chatting, dancing, and enjoying the complimentary bottle of Champagne (a thoughtful birthday gift on behalf of the owner and staff), waking up to get dressed for breakfast would have surely been a chore. Lucky for me, breakfast was arranged by my boyfriend from the night before, and we were able to have a delicious Belizean breakfast in bed, wrapped up on cozy robes, all while enjoying a gorgeous sea view!
Breakfast in Bed were Hot Belizean Fry Jacks with a delicious side of re-fried beans, scrambled eggs and fresh locl fruits!
Try the three water activities they have to offer: Sailing, Kayaking, and Paddle boarding! I wasn’t successful with either of the two I tried, but I had a blast laughing at myself struggling anyway!
The worst part of this trip was leaving! I wanted to live the Belizean Dreams a little longer! They haven’t seen the last me of though ;)!
Don’t take my word for it though- go experience the Belizean Dream for yourself! Visit the Belizean Dreams Resort Website to learn of their different packages and book your trip today!
