    Great trip!

    What a great trip! The pools and greenery at the resort were obviously very taken care of. All staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The only real complaint I have was that my fiance wasnt able to wear a tank top to even the buffet, it had to be a short sleeve shirt at all times. While I don't see an issue in this, I saw plenty of women with only bikinis on top, meaning no shirt of any kind. If you're going to uphold a standard it should be for all genders.

    Dreams Las Mareas was Perfect

    The facility was beautiful, the rooms were great, The staff is super friendly and helpful and the food was excellent with so many choices and so fresh and interesting. We were at the resort during the time that Costa Rica close their borders so we didn’t have a lot of people at the resort, but they treated us perfectly. We were worried about the staff after everyone left because they said they would be closing the hotel for three months but they told us that the owner of the company had decided to pay them during the time that they were off. I guess this was the only place in Costa Rica that was going to do this for their people. That made us very happy as we left knowing that these people would be taken care of.

    Incredible wedding in sunny Costa Rica!

    In late February, my husband and I had 60 of our closest friends and family at Dreams for our wedding. We had ready so many reviews that portrayed this resort in a negative way. Dreams is absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations! None of our group had a poor experience and they all raved about what I wonderful time they had. This resort provides the opportunity to lounge by the pool, mingle at the pool bar or enjoy the natural beauty of the beach and surrounding area. Even in the dry season, the landscape is still breathtaking and the grounds of the resort are lush and well maintained. The food was delicious and the drinks we're plentiful and creative! One of our groups favourite drinks, was the green monster- a must try! Although the resort is far from some of the main tourist areas in Costa Rica (Ex. Arenal, Monte Verde and Tamarindo), there is still opportunities for amazing excursions and further exploration of other national parks. 40 of us went on an incredible excursion to Sensoria located in Rincón de la Vieja. If you are interested in seeing more of the lush, rainforest landscape of Costa Rica, Sensoria and Rincón de la Vieja are definitely a must and worth the 2 hour drive. Our wedding was a dream come true! Daniel, our incredible on site wedding coordinator was easy to communicate with and put our minds at ease. We met with Daniel the day before our wedding and he reviewed everything from the location, set up, areas of drop off for our band and answered all of our questions. He told us our wedding would look like a fairy tale and he was not joking! It was absolutely stunning and beyond our exceptions. Our ceremony, cocktail and reception were all located on beach making it a beautiful, bare-foot, boho wedding - exactly what we wanted! If you are thinking about having your wedding at Dreams or visiting Dreams for a vacation, you will not be disappointed!
