2020 TripAdvisor Awards Announced
When travel industry awards and recognition are announced, an amazing amount of background work has been done before conferring ratings, and TripAdvisor is no exception. Using feedback from guests in concert with other data, by the time those ratings and reviews have been synthesized, every factor has been computed in order to determine where hotels, resorts, restaurants and attractions should be ranked.
From the quality of lodgings to staff friendliness and amenities that turn a pleasurable stay into a blissful one, resources like TripAdvisor stay true to travelers who rely upon them for accuracy and truth.
Because TripAdvisor has a reputation to maintain, the company doesn’t take its responsibility for assigning rankings lightly. By the time those numbers are conferred on properties, the suspense is palpable. For this reason and more, management and staff at Belizean Dreams Resort – located in Hopkins – are overjoyed every time the resort appears high on TripAdvisor rankings.
Best of the Best
What ensures the resort’s continued inclusion on these elite lists? Belizean Dreams’ ambiance, amenities, service and hospitality, and since TripAdvisor searches the world for the best of the best, high ratings come with prestige and a heightened reputation for excellence.
In 2019, Belizean Dreams made TripAdvisor’s Central America “Top 6” lists in categories that include romance, small hotels and service. Happily, 2019 was no outlier. Between 2016 and 2018, this lush property averaged a 6 rating for romance and while not all of the categories have been sorted out for 2020, Belizean Dreams staff just learned that the resort was picked as the world’s 25th top small hotel and the 13th best hotel for service – and it’s only July! This honor is particluarly sweet in that Belizean Dreams and its sister property, Coco Plum Island Resort, were the only resorts in Belize to be listed in these categories.
Coco Plum Island Resort and Belizean Dreams were also listed among the best small resorts in all of Central America, with Coco Plum earning the top spot and Belizean Dreams coming in at #2. According to TripAdvisor, this year’s winners are now honored as Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best, representing the most exceptional, highest-rated properties around the globe. “These businesses are among the top 1% of all listings on the Tripadvisor website and Certificate of Excellence honorees are now celebrated as Travelers’ Choice winners, known for consistently earning great reviews.” TripAdvisor said in a press release.
Belizean Dreams Resort is in a unique position to keep earning awards. The property is comprised of 9 luxurious stand-alone villas, each one perched on the edge of the Caribbean Sea so every guest vacations just steps from sand and surf. Guests also enjoy a slice of luxury for less with the newly built Boutique Rooms located on the second floor of the Promenade Building. Set among a landscape of swaying palm trees and hibiscus scented breeze, these rooms offer added privacy.
A favorite all inclusive destination for families, couples and groups, guests spend an inordinate amount of time enjoying spa services when they’re not borrowing sports toys to frolic in the Caribbean Sea or dining at the resort’s award-winning restaurant. Given so many perks, it’s easy to see why this small resort scores big rating numbers every year.
How has Belizean Dream become so noteworthy despite being a rather small fish in a huge pond? It’s easy. Every person on staff thinks big, cares deeply and takes pride in working at a property that truly cares about the experience of every guest. Are world records the end of this resort’s ambitions? That depends upon when the moon is settled and whether or not that planetary body is hospitable enough for a world-class resort with deep roots on Planet Earth!
