Living the Dreams

Just back from a fabulous vacation at Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica! The resort was beautiful, as was the country of Costa Rica. We arranged our flights and ground transportation through the website and all went very smoothly, with a knowledgeable and friendly driver to the resort. The rooms was beautiful and had a very nice view. We also had a good location that was close the the bars and restaurants. The pools and beach areas are beautiful and nicely maintained and we spent 3 full days on site. Beautiful sunset over the center of the beach each evening was a nice bonus. We booked two excursions on site and both were wonderful. The Mega Combo was a fantastic fun filled and adventurous day. The Diamonte Eco park was also a great day. The staff's attention to detail is an area for focus. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation and at check in they indicated they would leave her something special in her room, but nothing resulted. I asked and they re-iterated they would do womething, .but didn't the second chance either. Pros: great location,beautiful room, great views, great restaurants, friendly staff Cons: Attention to detail, AMSTAR mobile app, inconsistent internet

Fun time!

Great service!!! Don’t have to get up much from your pool chair to get a drink which was nice! Chairs do get taken quickly so put towels on them very early in the morning. The pools were very clean!! Breakfast buffet was excellent!!! Dinner options were okay but service room is always available anyways! Book the excursions through the front desk not people on the beach! Would definitely go back!!!

Dreams Costa Rica

If you're looking for an all inclusive in Costa Rica, Dreams offers a nice option that is more upscale than the others. My price of $2,200 for four days was excessive, but Dreams offers discounts that are more affordable. I had to use up a credit so the price was not my main concern. The resort is very pretty & the food was overall very good. The view of the infinity pool blending with the ocean is beautiful, but if you are looking to spend a lot of time in the ocean, you will be disappointed because the water is freezing.The second show entertainment was also very good. Be aware of the staff wanting to have breakfast with you. They will waste a morning with their sales pitch to sell vacation packages, although I see this in many all inclusives. If you're wanting to see Costa Rica in an al inclusive, Dreams is the best I have found in Costa Rica, and I live here.

Forgotten Wedding services

My son set up his wedding here for sunset on the beach. They met with Daniel the wedding planner and paid for everything. Unfortunately, the resort forgot to get the flowers for the bridesmaid, the Best man and the parent (and tried to blame the groom). The resort forgot to set up the wedding bedroom as arranged (and paid for) - no flowers inside, no sash on the door saying just married, no announcement in the daily newsletter delivered to everyone saying that the couple were just married. The resort forgot to bring breakfast in bed until the couple was leaving to get breakfast. When someone in the preferred club was approached about the problems, instead of showing care or concern - the person said that bride and groom shouldn't be in the preferred area - though they were approved to be there - and was rude to them. The restaurant service was not consistent. The biggest issue with service revolved around our ability just to obtain water to drink or getting drinks that were ordered (even when ordered from three different persons - no one delivered a drink). This was extrememly frustrating and continued across every night we were there.

What's to Love

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

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.

Make a splash with water polo, kayaking and snorkeling.

Stay classy with Spanish, dance, cocktail and cooking lessons.
