Maderas Beach is a perfect little pocket of paradise. I loved the decidedly untouristy vibe. And when visiting such place, it would be sacrilege to stay in a Mc-hotel. Dream Catcher stole my heart. It's everything at one: relaxing, but a party; fun but chill, tons of stuff to do, but nothing to be done....
I most appreciated the fact that everything was thought of for me. Meals are done for you. Want to go into town? The guys are the Dream Catcher will sort it out for you. Want to go surf? Stroll down the hill, come back when you're hungry.
I recharged my batteries down there, met incredible people, drank some rum and made some memories.
The food is fantastic (fresh, local, hearty), the rooms are basic but all i needed, the beach is breathtaking, the surf is fun. And, it's a bargain. I'll be back soon. I've sent several friends there, all have come back with amazing reviews, too.
Get down there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are located at Maderas Beach, about 20 minutes outside of San Juan del Sur. We offer a three daily meals, either a la carte or as part of a pre-fixe menu. We are like a boutique hotel, but less pretentious. We love people who want a place to surf, read, debate, and do yoga daily; who want to lose themselves in a place, and find themselves in the people. We offer tailored packages for short-term guests and very reasonably priced rates for people planning to stay longer than 3 weeks. We are not in Lonely Planet or other guidebooks; we like having to be found. ... more less
