Recently my husband and I chose Ocean Dream Beach Resort to unwind, and relax with long walks on the secluded beach, morning sunrise, and enjoyed the selection of Bohemian meals. The cottages located on the bluff, are spaced for privacy and yet a short walk to the cafe. Our cottage was clean and very well furnished to make you feel comfortable whether on the back patio overlooking the full view of the Atlantic ocean, reading a book in the sitting area, or falling asleep in a soft bed with an ocean breeze listening to the crashing waves below. Dr. Olga Clarke, the owner was very gracious and met all our needs. Olga was wonderful company and always available to connect us with transportation or activities we might be interested in. We have been coming to Cat Island for several years and this is the first time we stayed on the Atlantic side as there are very few and far between options to do so. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and visit with Olga, we found a place of quiet tranquility, a true respite.

We spent a day at the Ocean Dream while staying at Hawk's Nest on Cat Island. Dr. Clarke was a wonderful host and the views are incredible. She cooked us a fantastic Bahamian lunch after we spent the morning enjoying the big Atlantic waves crashing onto the pink sand beach. We will definitely return again.

It was the beautiful pictures of the Ocean Dream Beach cottages on a hill overlooking the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean that first caught my attention. And immediately made me interested in booking with Ocean Dream Beach Resort. My husband and I to this day have not regretted choosing them for our perfect getaway in Cat Island. We were looking for a place where we were able to have privacy, and get away from it all. And we got exactly the type of off the grid, romantic holiday we wanted during our stay. You have to drive down a long dirt road to get the resort, but the incredible views of the lush green hills on one side and the cottages overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen was definitely worth the drive. Our air-conditioned cottage was one –bedroom including kitchen, living room and bathroom. We had a back porch that had lounge chairs where we were able to take In the views of the beach. There was a full-service restaurant at the resort where the owner Ms. Olga made sure we were well-taken care of. She made us feel so welcome, and took the time out to make sure we received the personal touch at her resort. Her hospitality was unforgettable. She was ever cheerful and ready to help us or give us tip on where to go and what to do on Cat Island. We even got a complimentary meal when we were leaving. It was our first trip to Cat Island, and thanks to Ms. Olga and her beautiful resort, it will definitely not be our last!

Would you enjoy falling asleep to and awakening to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing and breaking below you? Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of the city and crave a very relaxed pace? Does the thought of a secluded beach with miles of pink sand appeal to you? If you answered a resounding Yes to all three (3) questions, start packing your bags for the Ocean Dream Resort. You will be pleasantly surprised to discover that there are a total of 6 beach cottages. There are 3 one-bedroom cottages and 3 two-bedroom cottages. They are proportionate in size and distance between each cottage. There is a dirt road that lead to the property that is about a 10 minute drive. The cottages and club house is situated on a very high hill. The owner of this dream retreat is Dr. Olga Clarke. She is the epitome of the famed Bahamian hospitality. Her warm and inviting nature will have you feeling right at home. Especially when she starts adopting you into her family and referring to you as her grandchild. Dr. Clarke or Grammy Olga as I affectionately referred to her during my stay is also quite the chef extraordinaire. She prepared native dishes such as grouper fingers, stew fish and crab soup so be prepared to dine sumptuously with generous island size portion meals. The privacy of the property is ideal for couples, small wedding party, small men, women, marriage, family or staff retreat. If you are seeking to become more attuned with nature or your travel partner/group without the usual daily distractions, then the Ocean Dream Resort in Cat Island is awaiting your arrival.

We found ourselves on Cat Island without a place to stay but definitely had some angels looking out for us. We were brought to Ocean Dream by one of them and never looked back. The two-bedroom unit was plenty of space for our family of four to totally relax and unwind. The view and sounds of crashing waves from the ocean-facing bedroom window and from the living area can't be beat! Olga, our hostess, couldn't have been more accommodating to our situation. She took us in, fed us a true Bahamian meal, and even chauffeured us back to get our rental car. She was charming and a true representative of all the goodness Cat Island has to offer. Olga's dog even adopted our family for the time we were there allowing us to miss our own canine less.

More beachside efficiency cottages than a resort given the lack of amenities. If you are looking to get off the grid, you've found a home with as no internet and limited power (generator and panels, not island power) makes you feel quite rustic and isolated. Accommodations are basic and food is only available if pre-ordered in advance from the helpful all-in-one owner/manager/hostess/cook/repairperson. Keep in mind that this side of the island is also quite windy so you might consider the west or south for more calm. For transportation, you'll definitely need a car. All in all, not the most terrible option ... though there are much better options available on Cat Island for the money.

Breathtaking views, incomparable beach, charming villas, excellent service and authentic island cooking. I loved this place. The ocean breeze was a lullaby that hypnotized me to sleep. My body refused to get out of the bed. I loved the way they didn't disturb the environment at all and utilized solar energy. This was a truly wonderful and picturesque experience. I highly recommend.

I stayed two days in Cat Island and had the pleasure of staying at the Ocean Dream hotel. I must say it was a true island escape. The accommodations were excellent, service was superb and food was great.

This truly is a dream resort for those respectful of the environment: undisturbed, natural surroundings; exclusive, expansive and unparalleled ocean views from cottages overlooking the Atlantic; all solar powered(!) making it the greenest resort on the island if not all the Bahamas; and miles of restful seclusion from those much more touristy hotels that insulate their visitors from the true breadth and depth of the island's charmed and wild beauty. Stay here to disconnect from daily life back home and reconnect with the earth and your inner peace. Equally exceptional are hosts Desiree and Nick. Friendly, warm, generous, supremely accommodating…I can't say enough good about this entrepreneurial dream couple and their dream resort. You will never encounter a crowd or a scene here but you will eat some memorable meals, from local seafood to Greek specialties, prepared by the effervescent chef, Nick. I stayed off-season for a solo getaway with basically just swim trunks, a copy of Carlos Castaneda's Journey to Ixtlan, and my writing pad. I breathed in the ocean's briny breeze and resynchronized to the pulse of my bare feet on the ground, my head in the stars, and my heart reinvigorated. I swam. I walked the endless, solitary beach. I wrote. I read. I contemplated. And I spoke at length with the delightful and genteel Desiree about life on the island and beyond, including our places in the universe, and our dreams for a better future. An eco-conscious vacation here can really affect the rest of your life in ways you might not imagine. Be bold: a road less traveled is infinitely replenishing.

The owners, Nick and Desiree are very accommodating and will do whatever they can to make you comfortable. They have done a great job with the cottages. The units are nicely furnished and pretty comfortable.The views out the back of the cottages are amazing. There is a flat screen TV's in the unit with a reasonable number of channels (for the Bahamas). Be aware that the property is very remote. This would be a great place to base yourself if your goal was to do a lot of exploring of the island. There really isn't anything to do on the grounds. The ocean is quite rough and there are no facilities or shade on the beach.
