We arrived from Itaca's office in Warsaw. Flight 9 hours. Hotel worth recommending. It is worth paying about 40-50 dollars/ pet day, to a room with a view of the ocean. The staff is very careful - especially the manager named Anastasia. Although we are among the capricious

Yes Paradise does exist on this planet, and I found it at Dream. Back for the 7th time. And always that beautiful view, with white sand, turquoise see, and palm trees. That's for the surroundings. But the most appreciated is the warmness & kindness of the service : all guests

Not sure about the food. Swimming in a Burkini shouldn't be a problem.

Hi Daniela. Yes, you can smoke at the bars and pool area. There is a bar and recliners on the beach. You can smoke there as well. Ashtrays were provided. As a matter of choice, nobody smoked in the indoor dining areas. Hope you have a great time. Note: They provide Rooibos soap in the bathrooms and shower. This soap does not lather. You might want to carry your own.

Hi Is there a mosquito / malaria problem on the island? Thank you
No Malaria problems. Mosquitoes are around but not that bad. You need to make sure you have mosquito repellents (creams and sprays) and should be good to go.
