Loved the hammoks, loved the outdoor showers, great common areas. Lovely atmosphere. Loved the interior decorations. Close to the beach. Three course brunch was also tasty and staff were all welcoming and helpful. The only downside are the gates around the community: it was a bit difficult to find our way back from the evening walk as most of the...

On one hand it is my favorite hotel ever. But then came night time and the neighborhood dog kept barking. Not the hotels fault but that is the only complaint! It is very cool, artsy, romantic and no-stress. Loved the proximity to the beach. Staff was awesome.

This hotel is eclectic (decor). However, it is a great place to stay. Rooms all have hammocks inside! You have a communal kitchen you can use to cook your own food (everything but meat, since the place is vegetarian). You have a communal fridge with a place to put stuff (each room is marked). Super friendly staff. Excellent breakfast (I...

The Dreamcatcher is a true oasis. Loved the vegetarian brunch and map of recommendations for the area including activities and restaurants. Hope to go back again! If you're not comfortable using the outdoor showers or sharing a bathroom, be sure to book a room with an en suite bathroom.

The Dreamcatcher is a secluded oasis just a block from the beach. We've stayed at large resorts here in Puerto Rico, and they possess certain appeal; however, the charm here starts with beautiful rooms and landscaping and continues with the intent to heal one of stress by nurturing the body and the soul. This is only our first night out...

This B&B is unusual, as it is described as a Vegetarian /Yoga ,laid back retreat for those with such a disposition, which we were not. However , being aware of what was in store, we found the experience to our liking. It is very much a 'do it yourself' establishment as far as food is concerned although they do have...

Service from the Heart, friendly staff, clean facility, artistically designed to bring a smile, and an opportunity to connect with the land. You must have fortune on your side to have the gift of visiting the Dreamcatcher's hospitality.

I have to say that I truly loved staying at The Dreamcatcher. Only a few steps inside the property is like entering a whole other dimension in the middle of Ocean Park. Love the concept of community spaces, shared kitchen, having a nice shower in a private terrace with the stars above. Jerome's food is DIVINE! The whole concept is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This gorgeous and intimate Guest House is located right at the beach in the pristine neighborhood of Ocean Park, only 10 minutes away from the Historical Old San Juan and the airport. The Dreamcatcher is the only vegetarian guest house in San Juan. Guests may sign up for yoga and meditation classes, take part in sightseeing tours, do paddle boarding, or opt for nature-adventure tours outside of the typical touristy options. They may also borrow a bicycle and go for a ride around the neighborhood beaches or the popular Loiza Street. The famous three-course breakfast is served daily by local chef Jerome who has been specializing in vegan and vegetarian cuisine since 2003. Guests may also choose between juice blends, homemade hemp milk and kombucha elixirs made with all natural ingredients. These in turn could be included in their daily detox meal plans. The Dreamcatcher is proud to be supporting this type of experience in which tourists enjoy healthy foods as they spend some time away from home. "Everything about this guesthouse suggests relaxation," according to the March 2014 issue of New York Magazine. It smells of incense, as one can listen to the meditation music in the background and hear the flow of water from the fountain. The Dreamcatcher is thoughtfully decorated with mostly vintage furniture and collectibles. The house holds beauty and memories alike, every corner tells a story. The awarded Inn is a true oasis with many areas to find privacy as well as to come together with other guests and friends.The common areas consist of a dining room, two lounging areas with rocking chairs and hammocks. A spacious living room that opens to the garden as well as a fully equipped Communal Kitchen. The garden is protected by dozens of Buddha's, which quietly sit among the fruit trees, the water fountain and in between the flowers. Every room is decorated with a Dreamcatcher to protect your sleep and entice sweet dreams. ... more   less
