Great location in town, friendly staff and loved the pig! The room was large and clean. We enjoyed our stay here and it fulfilled everything we were looking for. Would stay here again if we come back to visit.

Let me start off by saying....this just wasn't our place. If you are a surfer, a super budget person, between 18-30 years old...then this might be the perfect place for you and you can completely ignore our review. We are a bit older, still interested in budget, but not at the sake of comfort. The proprietor was super helpful in getting us booked directly. A pretty backwards way of taking charge cards (which I hope had some security to it since it was via WhatsApp). The hotel itself looked run down to us. The pool didn't look very clean so it was the only two nights of our whole 15 day vacation that we didn't soak in the pool. I'm sorry, but two single beds pushed together with a king size sheet do not make a king size bed. That is a huge pet peeve of mine. The mattress was.... tired. The kitchen was pretty dingy but I was happy to have a fridge to use. The bathroom looked far older than the pictures online. There was barely any water pressure in the shower and we had a difficult time getting hot water. Suddenly, the proprietor wasn't so helpful, just WhatsApped, "try turning on the sink faucet first". And near the sink faucet was a sign basically saying "don't waste water". The insides of the cups in the bathroom were covered in mineral deposits. The hotel was quiet enough. We did like the pet pig that was wandering around. And I loved the hot/cold water purifier/dispenser on the patio.

We stay the weekend to stay apart from the city and enjoy some relax time. Due to current covid situation, hotel was near empty, but still we enjoyed our stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Personal was kind and included breakfast was really good. Its located really close the entrance to Santa Teresa, right in the main road, and very very close to the beach. And from there you can go to other beaches really quick. The pool in the hotel its also really nice for relax and chill after being all day out. Definitely will think on coming back !

At first hand Carolina was very friendly and professional, she explained where everything in the hotel was and what was included in the excellent prices. As well as what restaurants and things to do around Beautiful Santa Teresa where. My room was very clean it had a big bed, very clean sheets and most importantly, it was quite all around. I really liked the location of the place this is where modern construction gets tucked in with nature, lots of shade everywhere, they even have hammocks around trees where you can nap, or why not, hava a cuppa java. Next morning the breakfast was very delicious, they do offer both local cuisine and american style brakfasts, very well prepared very healthy choices. In retrospect, Dreamcatcher has it all, a few steps take you to one of the most sought after surf beaches in the region, there are amazing tours that I am sure the staff can help you arrange. It was an awesome stay for a business trip, I just can't wait to go there just for a fun trip, I am certain it will be more than two nights. Excellent place!

The rooms are quite simple, but the staff in the reception are very friendly and helpful and the location is good. You are just a short walking distance away from the beach, a lovely breakfast spot like The Bakery or various yoga studios.
