We have over 50 unique, individually designed cottages tucked away in more than three acres of lush tropical gardens, an outdoor restaurant with a charming deck overlooking the breathtaking sight of the lagoon and the surrounding wilderness; a yogashala – cum- retreat centre, the best ayurvedic spa in South Goa, and staff that is dedicated to making your vacation a memorable experience.

We had booked river facing rooms. Property is good. But it's at the fag end of Palolem beach and there is no conveyance available easily, if you are not having your own vehicle. In house restaurant is exorbitantly prices, although you have the choice of going to the shacks on the beach. Room service is not available and even if you request the in house restaurant, they take extremely long time to deliver. So morning cup of tea/coffee in the room is a challenge. In house spa is also not operational. Would suggest to book the room in a resort which is half-way through the Palolem beach, so that market area is also easily accessible.

Unnecessarily hyped ! We went there in mid october after reading the reviews. We were given literally a 'Swamp' facing room which was very scary and damp ! While the beach was closeby, the path leading to the beach seemed dangerous in the evening. The AC was not working in our room and there were a lot of insects. While the staff was decent, they seemed to be short of resources. We had to walk for a kilometer at least to get an auto for our next destination. During checkin, we were told that they haven't opened up entirely for the season and were undergoing renovation. The restaurant was also not operational. A piece of advice to the owners, please open up the booking only when you are prepared to entertain guests. My husband has been a frequent visitor to Dreamcatchers and we were hoping that we get the same experience this time, but sadly it was very disappointing.

I stayed for 4 nights but was disappointed. My main plan was to do yoga at the site, but this was only available on special request (although there are posters around stating yoga is on every morning and afternoon), I did not see anyone doing yoga, and was hoping for more of a class vibe than me doing it solo with a teacher. I had one of the cheaper accommodation, and it was very run down and shabby (holes in the mosquito net, bathroom door falling off hindges). There is a short walk from the beach to the accommodation, and at the other side, from the road to the accommodation, but at night there is no lighting (except from those of local residents), so I felt rather uneasy walking there alone in the dark. I didn't mind the frogs in the bathroom or the noisy dogs barking ferociously in the middle of the night, but these few disappointments did not make it such an enjoyable stay. It was lovely to look over the estuary from the restaurant (lots of birds) however.

What can I say....... I stayed on a very tight budget, getting a bed only. Room was clean and tidy with very little in the way of furniture ( but wasn't needed). Bed was just about ok, quite hard but did the job. The veranda had a table and 2 comfy chairs where you can sit and contemplate. The bathroom was very basic but functional. The management are amazing - Many thanks Aaron :-) The location is perfect, about 50 meters from the beach, set in a small palm tree "plantation". It is very quite (no noise from the various bars etc). It is a VERY peaceful and tranquil setting, a perfect place to "get away from it all". The restaurateur / bar area is set on a river bank with stunning views of the inlet , trees and you can sit and watch the little boats go up and down the inlet (which comes from the sea). Lost to see from this location as a base, all within walking distance. I will be returning, one day (with the Mrs) but staying in an upgraded lodge!
