We booked our first 3 days here and were very impressed with the welcome, cleanliness of the area and look of the huts. We planned to spend over two weeks in Palolem and after two days here we craved an ocean/beach view which Dreamcatcher does not give you and once you weigh up the need for nicer decor compared to...

It still remains a mystery to me why most Indians prefer the northern side of Goa. Maybe, it's the idea of a party. Or maybe, it's so commercialised that it feels more like a city and less like Goa. Palolem isn't like this. Thankfully. It has its share of hotels and shacks along the beach line. But then it still... More

We loved staying at dream catcher, lovely huts located a short walk back from the beach. It was quiet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was right on the water so a relaxing place to go at any time of the day. My only criticisms are: we were told the rooms would be cleaned daily and... More

We spent another three weeks at Dreamcatcher over the Christmas and New Year holiday (sorry for the late review!). This is my second review, my first made a couple of years ago, and the camp remains beautifully laid out amongst the palm trees. Our room overlooked the river and mornings always started with a cuppa while watching the kingfishers and... More

Ok, this resort looks a little better than the alternatives nearby (dont expect much if you are staying in a hut anyway), but definitely not enough to justify 4 times price difference. Just check out the other huts on the beach. Dreamcatcher is just 100 meters from the beach, but it is scary to walk the narrow street at night... More

Dear Onur, We're sorry that you had a bad experience, for next time, please let us know the issue when you're at the resort and we can help. We can't help and fix the issues for you after you have already left. Regarding the pricing, I don't know how can you state that we are 4 times more expensive than... More

We stayed at this resort for two nights. Its at the extreme north of the Palolem beach. The cottages that we got were very basic in terms of amenities and stay. But it wasnt maintained well. There was no drinking water kept in the rooms so we had to somehow arrange for it on our own late night when we... More

Dear guest, Sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. Just one comment, we clearly say that the resort has no beach view bungalows but river view bungalows. Thanks for your feedback, Guy More

What a place! Next to the backwaters and on the beach sand, Dreamcatchers is the perfect relaxing place in Palolem. The restaurant is expensive and little lower on the quality side. The amenities in the hotel are little less though that's kind of expected in such a setup. On the whole a very good experience.

Visited end jan for one week. Stayed in very nice large shack with sliding glass doors. There were hot showers and big bathroom. Large bedroom with mosquito net all around the bed, cleaning was every other day and done very well. An excellent restaurant on site with amazing views over the river. The whole place had a very relaxed vibe.... More

We arrived in the middle of the night and the lights made the resort look magical! The location is great - a 3min walk to Palolem beach and a 15min rickshaw ride away from Agonda beach (which is absolutely stunning and well worth the journey). The huts are basic but clean and have a great quirky feeling to them. The... More

Want to get the feel of staying in a beach shack, but not sure you want to be right next to the restaurants and bars, then DreamCatcher is a good compromise. The "cottages" are built freshly for each season and are clean and well presented. Dreamcatcher resort has a focus on Yoga and a Spa, but it is just as... More
