When it comes to adult-only accommodations, there’s a stigma that it’s catered only towards couples. After all, adult-only resorts do offer a romantic getaway for couples looking for a break from their families or to celebrate their love. Yet, I found this far from the truth. In my recent stay at Daydreamin’ Bed & Breakfast in San Pedro, Belize, I also found excitement as a solo traveler at the adult-only bed and breakfast.
Daydreamin’ was the rejuvenation and place of solitude I desperately needed. After days of trekking in the jungle and chasing after adventure, I was ecstatic to embrace and learn from San Pedro’s island vibes. Daydreamin’ Cabana certainly did not disappoint.
Though Daydreamin’ is advertised as a bed and breakfast, it’s so much more than that. Run by Rob and Mar, the bed and breakfast is nothing close to quaint and cozy — it’s luxurious and will definitely make you feel like royalty.
From the moment you check in, guests are offered a complimentary drink. Without question, I indulged on the resorts Pinot Grigio, which even pleased my inner wine snob. Within 60 seconds of check-in, I was left to bask in the rejuvenating solitude and enjoy the homemade dark chocolate scruples left on my bed.
The bed & breakfast is organized as though it’s a village of cabanas, four in total. Each cabana is private and overlooks a circular pool shared by all the vacationers. Outfitted with their own personal deck where breakfast is served daily, vacationers do not have to leave to enjoy a slice of paradise.
Luxury is their first name and priority
When you walk through the gates of Daydreamin’, you’re greeted by the glorious smell of coffee beans wafting through the air. Mar also runs a coffee shop that is adjacent to the private cabanas. Guests at the cabanas can run a bill at the coffee shop and order coffee, smoothies, alcoholic drinks and other favors throughout the day — talk about convenient.
The rest of the cabana village is connected with a lush, cherry-stained deck. In the center is the circular-shaped, stone pool with a fountain erected in the center. The pool offers a place for visitors to meet and connect. The submerged bar stools is a great place to lounge and converse as well as bask in the sun’s rays. Better yet, the entire bed and breakfast is outfitted for adults so no worries about children splashing loudly in the pool.
Inside the rooms, guests are pampered immensely. Be ready for the most relaxing days you’ve spent in Belize — I know it was for me. The hushed shades of blue and neutrals, establish a calm and peaceful environment. In my one bedroom cabana, I was treated to a plush bathrobe and indulgent bath soaps and washes. I felt nothing short of a queen during my stay. The linens and textiles used to decorate the room gave it a cozy yet high-end luxurious vibe. I had no problem relaxing in my queen sized bed with sheets with more than adequate thread count.
Each cabana has glass french doors that overlook the shared soaking pool and coffee shop. Framed with privacy curtains, the doors offer visitors a look outside, but the privacy that they seek for much-needed relaxation.
Before bedtime, guests are asked to turn in their breakfast selections for staff. Each morning the menu offers a unique style of breakfast that visitors can choose from. Guests also choose the time their breakfast will be served on their private deck overlooking the cabanas’ common area.
I enjoyed a savory, filling frittata with coffee and a bagel on the side. The food was spectacular and enjoying it with the birds chirping overhead and the sea lapping on the shore nearby, it was a perfect start to my morning.
When I first arrived at the water taxi terminal, I was told that I could walk to Daydreamin’. Not true! Mar messaged me right away and said that renting a bike or golf cart would be necessary. Though some would assume that being away from San Pedro’s main drag is a con for this accommodation, I would actually list it as a plus. I love that Daydreamin’ was secluded and away from the hustle and bustle. Downtown San Pedro can get a little rowdy into the wee hours of the morning, so I was thankful I was able to catch some zzz’s away from the excitement.
The drive from the resort is also so worth it. Not only is it a blast to zoom around on the golf cart, you get to see a lot of the island. Just a word of caution, you do have to pay a toll when crossing the bridge, which costs $5 BZE each way. To avoid this fee, people recommend tourists to drive as though they are locals, who are not charged the toll fee.
Less than 100 yards from the cabanas is the Caribbean Sea. If you rented or brought your own snorkeling gear, feel free to jump off the dock and snorkel beyond the reeds. If not, enjoy the stellar view and relax on the sandy beach nearby.
Would I rent again?
In a heartbeat! Rob and Mar were great hosts and took the time to talk to their guests. Though the bed and breakfast was upscale, I loved the homey vibe. Every morning, the owners took the time to serve you breakfast or grab a cup of coffee for you. They definitely care about giving their guests the royal treatment.
Rob and Mar’s story about settling in Belize is inspirational, so definitely ask about it during your stay. They have various events also held at the bed and breakfast you should also check out.
Even though I was a solo traveler, I felt like royalty at the adult-only accommodation. I loved that I was not excluded for being alone or that everything was catered towards couples. Next time I travel abroad, I’m interested in trying out more adult-only accommodations since I did receive top-of-the-line service.
