Beautiful resort, great vacation

We have not been on vacation in a long time so we were extremely excited about traveling to Costa Rica. When we arrived at the resort it looked just as beautiful as it did in the pictures. There were no surprises except that the resort is extremely large so there was a lot of walking involved. The pools were kept clean and the beach was gorgeous. Most of the staff was friendly and the food was great. The Oceania restaurant even cooked our Mahi that we caught on the fishing trip, and it was awesome!!! I definitely recommend an ocean view room. We were on the top floor in the middle of the resort so we could see everything from the pools, the beach, the water and the nightly entertainment without leaving our balcony.

Long way from everything

The resort was quite nice however it was s 90 minute ride from the airport . All of the day excursions were at least 2-3 hr ride each way from the hotel. The service was excellent. Restaurant choices were limited. They had s fireworks display zFriday nite that was beautiful. The beach was nice, actually in a cove. Beaches are public so local families would come to the beach and constantly trying to sell you something.

Too High Up

Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica - I will say I will never go back. First, I think next time I will stay more toward the middle of Pacific side instead of at the very top. There is only one direction to go down and is an 1/1/2 hours minimum to get anywhere and then you see the same thing on every tour. The road to the hotel is terrible. And the beach really isn't that nice, it is stuck in a cove. The rooms are nice, and the pools are nice. The bars are a joke. The swim up bar opened at 10am and closed at 4pm. The food was really good at the Italian restaurant. The Mexican restaurant was terrible. And the Japanese restaurant was pretty good, but took an act of God to get a reservation there. It should not be that difficult. The room was suppose to have a mini bar. All we had was a refrigerator with 4 bottle pops, 3 bottle beers, and 2 box orange juices, lol. AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN PROVIDE YOU WITH A BOTTLE OPENER. I called and asked for one but then when they cleaned the room they took the bottle opener for the love of God. And there is not really anything fun to do at night at the hotel. So we basically went to dinner and then back to the room every night.

Disappointed

The resort was beautiful but the service and options were limited. This was in October so not peak season - because of low occupancy multiple restaurants were closed which was frustrating for dinner options both a lack thereof and a wait for some. There was also a long wait to get into the resort when we got there which was frustrating after a full day of travel. The actual landscape on the resort is gorgeous.

What's to Love

Chilly towels and a glass of sparkling bubbly to ease your transition from reality into Shangri-la.

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

The secluded tropical vistas that showcase the brilliant, turquoise Pacific.

Swank suites with jaw-dropping views of teal waves, the lush jungle or gentle sloping mountains.

The La Cascada waterslide for the kids - keeps them engaged so you can chill.

Hot tubs in every room and swim-out suites, the only resort in this region to offer these.

Soul-soothing, soft bathrobes and slippers.

The slammin' 44,000 square foot swimming pool, currently the largest in this region.

Explorer's club (kids 3-12) that offers everything from sand castle competitions to arts & crafts.

Red Cross certified staff supervise the aforementioned club. A relief, right?

Parents get a pager from the Explorer's club, should they be needed for anything.

Stress-smashing treatments like the Sabai Mineral Therapy and Chocolate Body Wrap. Delish.

Candle lit dining oceanside, the purr of the waves as your dinner music. There's a fee, but life is short.

 

What We'd Change

A family resort means there'll be kids around, but if you want some peace and quiet, it's easy to find at the spa or beach.
 

Why You Should Go

It's only 90 minutes from the airport - unwind and take in the scenery on your way to paradise.

Upgrade to the Preferred Club and get access to a private lounge, a private beach and much more.

See two countries while you're here - golf in Nicaragua at nearby Guacalito Golf Course.

Just minutes away from Guanacaste National Park. Bring your walking shoes.

Sunset romantic weddings at the magical wedding gazebo. (Swoon.)

If you want to be a human slingshot, there's Euro-bungee.

Intro to Scuba Diving lessons in the pool - Free!

Big screen movies on the beach - big family fun.

Dive into deep-sea fishing and kite surfing and, for a fee.

You can strike a pose in yoga, then cool down with ping pong.

If you're competitive, enter the Beach Olympics.
