    Costa Rica Pura Vida

    Visited Dreams Las Mareas in September with expectations of rain everyday on the forecast due to it being rainy season. The sun was shining everyday and it rained once, at night. Beautiful resort. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. Would go back.

    Our 40th anniversary was awesome at Dreams Las Mareas!

    Our 40th was made complete when a last minute change caused us to boot at the Dreams in Costa Rico. Jose at the adult pool remembered what we wanted and brought drinks and fresh cut fruit. Sergio the concierge made sure we didn't have any issues and took care of reservations. Alejandra was the hostess with the big smile that welcomed us into the restaurants. Esther kept our room clean - we didn't even have an insect in our room; a surprise for a tropical climate. The food and service were amazing and Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries we have been to. We will go back! Bill and Becca

    We arrived at the hotel in the evening and so we couldn't really see the beauty straight away. We were driven to our room on a little golf cart and the bell boy was very friendly and although he didn't speak great English, he tried really hard and we appreciated it. The hotel complex is in the middle of the jungle and is not a good base if you want to travel around Costa Rica but we just wanted to relax in luxury and the hotel had that in spades. All the staff were friendly in spite of some very rude hotel guests that we witnessed, they were attentive and made sure we were well looked after providing us drinks to our sun loungers and excellent service in all the restaurants. The food was great and plentiful and the drinks were really good. The shop was pretty overpriced but then that's business, they have a captive market. Just make sure you bring essentials with you like medication and sun cream and you'll be fine. Finally, the beauty of the place was just stunning, it took our breath away and that wasn't because it was really hot and humid. Everywhere you looked was just stunning and we had an amazing and relaxing time. We loved it.
