The standard rooms are a lot smaller than they look from the pictures - basically a bed and bathroom with fans (no AC/fridge). That said, they have amazing views of the ocean and nice communal outdoor areas, including hammocks They also got a nice breeze, so didn't feel hot. The staff are amazing. A nice communal/community feel with a lot of us hanging out together and going to the private beach to go kiteboarding (which is why we were staying there in the first place). Location is great. They have a private beach about 5 mins drive down the road (or 15 mins walk) with a key to the gate for all staying there. There are lots of little areas to explore nearby. The kiteboarding instructors were really good. Fun, friendly and highly skilled. We loved the hostel/community vibe and made some great friends. Definitely come back - though probably upgrade to the bungalow or better room!

Many thanks for your staying and we are very glad you had a good time and you looked the view and the instructors. Yes, rooms are with different sizes and prices so guests can choose what they think is better for their necessities. The beach you mentioned is public but we go through a private entrance for the benefit of our clientes that want to learn or practice kiteboarding. There is also another beach 250 meters away that is very nice because is even more wild. See You next time, many thanks!

Important Note. This review is based on the Junior Suit. It has a much higher price than the normal rooms and this at least for us raise the bar on cleaning, equipment and service included. The normal rooms have a much lower price and they would rank higher in our judgment if we had stayed there, We stayed in the Junior Suit and found it lacking in regards of cleaning on arrival. The bed was very well made and 100% clean and the bathroom/toilet was also cleaned ok. The bedroom floor was dirty (as well as under the bed) and there were more than the normal share of creepy crawlies. We got the impression that just the junior suit was not rented that often. The normal rooms (cheaper/no A/C) was located further up on the hill (Blue Dream Hotel is located on a very, but, very steep hill and you will have to go the hill to reach the parking as well as your rooms. The view from the normal rooms was spectacular (the junior suit has almost no sea view at all. We've been told that the suit id have good views but did not see it our self). There is Wifi coverage in all the normal places including rooms but it was a bit shaky and the speed varied from more or less ok to "go to bed" slow. The food was very good from the breakfast to the hand made pizza in the outdoor stone oven (recommended)! Food prices was at tourist level as was the rooms. Just over $70 for the junior suit without breakfast and around another $8-10/person for breakfast takes the pricing to the level of much more luxurious and modern hotels with higher standard. One should take into account the location as well and note that there are very few places close to this location where you can stay and this will raise the prices. The second day all the cleaning was well done and the lack of cleaning we found when arriving was corrected the second day and on. The location is good with easy reach (by car) to a number of beaches. Playa Rajada, Playa EL Jobo, Playa Papaturro and a number of other playas can be reached in under or around 30 minutes. As far as I understand the Hotel is well visited by kitesurfers and the normal room, the closeness to the beaches and the amazing pizza should give them a hard to beat treat by staying here. Not to much competition around when it comes to hotels so Blue Dream Hotel is well worth a look, a visit and a bite of pizza!

Blue Dream is a Little resort with about 15 rooms (I guess) walking distance from a wild beach where there is usually you and…pelicans (playa Papaturro), not bad at all. The área is luckily not yet touristy and the peace around is the best gift.  I liked to wake up early in the morning and do some yoga in the terrace in front of an unique panorama of the bay.  The only noises were the howler monkeys and the parrots! So cool. Then I used to go at 7 am at the restaurant for an healthy breakfast and lay down in one of the hammocks for a while. I felt in peace with my body and my mind. The rest of the day was just a plus. I would suggest the sunsets at playa Rajada, a beach 10 minutes away by car. Everything recommended!

Perfect place for a kitesurfing holiday. Location is excellent, less than five minutes from a good spot, to which they have the key to access. Rooms are very basic, without AC, but clean and with hot water in the shower. There are hammocks and tables outside for chilling out in the evening Good restaurant, breakfast is ok, and they make proper pizzas in the evening. Lunchboxes available to eat on the beach. Kite school and rentals available too, with good equipment and instructors.

This hotel has simple accommodations for everyone with bungalows, standard rooms and 2 suites. Affordable and the food is great, especially the pizza made in outdoor wood-fired oven. Amazing performances of kite boarding to watch on the beach -- and they will deliver your lunch seaside.Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. Friendly and helpful staff just add to the experience.
