Whilst on holiday at palolem we had refreshments at the dream catcher, what a very serene place to just chill and look out into the yonder, if your lucky enough you can actually see the monkeys in the trees next to where you are sitting but they are quick we saw a couple, the staff are really helpful and polite...

We did not stay at the hotel, but the restaurant was GREAT. This is the only restaurant on the beach with natural shade. The waiters were awesome and had a way to pull my leg whenever I placed an order. I have always altered the food I ordered and they were exactly what I wanted. Given that the waiters in... More

Amazing little resort, with friendly and attentive manager Harry! Clean and taken care of even on the last days of the season. 1minute to the beach and easy to find back at night. The hut was clean and bug free, mosquito net is provided. Very romantic terrace with river view, such a shame we only had 2 days. Will certainly... More

First of all - this really does have the best location on the beach if you're looking for some peace and enjoy your own space. Being keen on wildlife, the balcony from star dust (our beach hut) is like having your own private bird hide - absolutely great. The manager is a friendly chap, really chilled out, helpful and generally... More

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
