I am from Puerto Rico, but I live in Illinois and every now and then I come visit my family. This was such an occasion. I had a last minute family emergency and needed to find an affordable but good place to stay, and whoa was a lucky to find this GEM in Ocean Park! Not only the booking price was affordable and lower than most lodging around the area, but from the moment I arrived and met Stephan (Malda, and Pippa) I knew my short stay would be the BEST I've ever had in the island (and I've been around the island quite a bit, being a local)
The Dreamcatcher is cozy, CLEAN, well planned and thought out. It's less than 4 blocks away from the beach and from local restaurants and such. The breakfast service was AWESOME (3-course service), homemade and so yummy! (thanks Dario!) My room was spotless and super comfy, with such an individual personality and GREAT energy. Stephan is a great guy and he took care of every need I had and answer every question I came up with. He really made me feel like a GUEST, and not just another paying client.
I am happy to recommend this place to ANYONE looking to enjoy a restful, good-vibe-stay. I am definitely bookmarking this place for next time!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- San Juan’s only vegetarian hotel is located in the pristine neighborhood of Ocean Park, only 200 steps from the beach. From here it is a 10 minute walk to the highly touristic area of Condado and a short 10 minute ride to the Old City or the airport. In 2017 The Dreamcatcher was awarded Top 10 International Bed&Breakfast and it has been rated #1 hotel in Puerto Rico for four years in a row. 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 rent a bicycle and go for a ride around the neighborhood beaches or the popular Loíza Street. The famous three-course breakfast is served daily by local chef Jerome who has been specializing in vegan and vegetarian cuisine since 2003. You may also choose between juice blends, homemade hemp milk and kombucha elixirs made with all natural ingredients. The Dreamcatcher is proud to be supporting this type of experience in which guests enjoy healthy foods as they spend some time away from home. Everything about this inn 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. At almost every corner of this captivating place, from guest rooms to common areas, there are dreamcatchers. These artifacts can be traced back to the native people of North America who used to make them by hand, as symbols of protection from nightmares and enablers of only beautiful dreams. And these happen to be the same positive vibes The Dreamcatcher team wants to send its guests as they walk in the main door. ... more less
