Hotel“Dream Bay” in Laspi is an inexpensive original place with a special flavor and nuances. Of the undoubted advantages of rest here is clean water, a small number of tourists, picturesque mountains available for hiking. It is also necessary to note the oyster farm, where every day you can buy fresh oysters, mussels and rapanas. Ideal for those who travel around the Crimea by car.
Bay “Laspi” in translation from ancient Greek means “dirt”. But mudslides in our time are rare. Also, this place attracts divers with the transparency of the water, thanks to which the underwater world is visible to the eye for tens of meters. Numerous grottoes and labyrinths are available for lovers of diving under water.
The territory of the hotel is guarded, the parking of the catacomb type, where there are shops and from where you need to get out into the light of God. A gorgeous view of the sea does not open from all rooms, so you need to clarify this point when booking. Here you can have a good rest, if you are not a very pretentious tourist, accustomed to the high level of resorts of the Dominican Republic or the Seychelles.
Elena Sotnikova writes a review: “a very beautiful and secluded bay. There are no outsiders here, only vacationers in the hotel. The atmosphere is similar to a country village: children run around, adults know each other. Breakfast is normal: cereals, salads, sausages, wings, eggs, etc. Hungry will not remain, but only. Old-timers say that the wind happens only in May-June, and the rest of the time is calm and smooth. The room was cleaned well, but the dishes were not washed. The staff is friendly, the boys and girls at the reception are helpful and smiling. Overall, our trip to Crimea was beautiful. There is a pleasant aftertaste, a lot of photos for memory and vivid memories. “

There is no beach as such, but instead of it on the pebble shore there are many places to enter the water. One of them has a dozen sun loungers with umbrellas, but they are occupied at 6 am. But the pier is arranged, from where children and adults are happy to dive. There is also a pontoon in the sea, from which swimmers also like to dive. The water is pure, because the place is not in the city and is removed from the main route – only guests of the hotel and tent camps around swim.
The spa is quite extensive and provides many interesting services, but for the most part for the addition. Fee. Only the swimming pools, Finnish sauna and Roman bath are included in the rate.

It works not all day, but in periods: from 11 to 13 and from 17 to 20. Probably, this is due to the fact that the Roman bath is heated with firewood, which in the Crimea are expensive.

Eugene writes a review: “was not in the “guest”, but in the LCD itself. Here are nice large apartments with steep views of the sea, mountains and swimming pool with courts. Good infrastructure, though a little original. Parking under the whole complex is made in the form of catacombs with shops where you can buy fresh fish with mussels, as in some market in Asia. In general, a cool place with its own atmosphere, which undoubtedly wants to visit again!”
Meals and restaurants
Breakfast is either buffet or complex – depending on the filling of the hotel. Vacationers rate it as a whole on a solid four. The choice is average, but you can’t stay hungry.
This is an expensive institution with high quality cooking and beautiful presentation. The chef prepares Mediterranean and European cuisine with an emphasis on fish and seafood. Celebrate a birthday, arrange a romantic evening, make a gastronomic gift – this place is just right for these purposes. Very tasty, but eating constantly too expensive.
Soups cost from 150p for chicken broth to 920p for tomato soup with seafood and fish. The main soups, for example, borscht, gazpacho, cream soup from different fillers, will cost within 200-400 p. Salads in the range of 190-850r. Main courses from 500r and above. Portions are small, as in most first-class restaurants. The average food bill is 1500-2000r without drinks.
Desserts deserve special mention. Milkshakes with banana, chocolate, fruit, caramel cost 180-250p for 250 grams. Cakes, tiramisu, strudel, etc. in the range of 180-320r., Which is also not cheap, given that portions of 100-150g.
Bar card has a wide variety and Moscow prices. A glass of Crimean wine will cost 200-400r depending on the brand and manufacturer. A good selection of cocktails and lemonades from the chef: “Long Island” 620p for 300 ml, “Mojito” 540p for 300 ml, “Bloody Mary” 340p for 250 ml, non-alcoholic lemonades 420-540p for 300 ml, etc.
Three cafes and shops:
“Rosemary” is a lounge café next to the pool. The average score is 700-2000r per person, which is also not cheap. But the high prices are partly compensated by the delicate taste of fresh seafood cooked in the skillful hands of the chef.
“Guria” – Georgian cuisine. There is a café 200 metres away. At 600-700p without drinks, you can eat the first + second or salad. At 1000r you can eat to the dump. Georgian cuisine is rich in vegetables and spices, the menu in the café is extensive. Kettle of tea 600ml costs 200r. Large selection of drinks, there is a draught beer.
Another restaurant is located nearby at the camp site “Dolphin”, but it is “for an amateur”. It doesn’t have very good reviews, so no details.
On the territory of the hotel there is a small grocery store with a vegetable shop, but the prices for products are more expensive than in Moscow. There is a department with household chemicals and manufactured goods at the same prices. In the parking lot you can buy oysters and fish from local fishermen. 2 kilometers on the way from the hotel there is another grocery store also with Moscow prices. Therefore, the most expensive products are recommended to take with you from the city: alcohol, coffee beans, fruits, desserts and everything else too. In the city it can be bought much cheaper and the choice will be richer.
In conclusion, it should be noted that it is recommended to bring food with you to those tourists who come to rest by car. The rest to save it is better to take a ticket with full board – it will be more profitable and without unnecessary problems.
Lilu writes a review: “The hotel is not for the demanding. I liked the big rooms, the private promenade, the oyster farm on site. Also a cool pontoon right in the sea for lovers of diving, friendly staff and hearty breakfasts. By car we went to Yalta and Sevastopol. And what a pool here, oh, my children lived in it all day.”
Fans of hiking and spectacular photos can go on a hiking trip along the trail to the “place of power” or “Temple of the Sun”, as it is called here. The local attraction is a large boulder located on a hill, from where beautiful views open. Walk to the boulders from the bus stop “Laspi” 40-50 minutes. Around only wildlife, no tents and springs. The climb up the mountain is hard, but families with children are mastering. Be sure to bring water and the necessary food. On the way you can see mountain sheep, ovs and other animals. Garbage should be collected in a bag and taken with you.
