    Beautiful resort

    The resort is beautiful but huge. So if you have issues walking, not the place for you. Plenty of pools and places to sit at the pools, but have to get up early to reserve the ones at pool closest to the beach. Food is pretty good, not great - some restaurants better than others. Food at the pool grill should be changed up a bit because you tend to just eat there for lunch. Some TLC needed - broken tiles etc. Not enough to do at night. Entertainment at night could be better. Ocean-view room that I booked was barely a partial ocean view - I changed it to be closer to my kids room, which was closer to the beach. People were very nice, bartenders were great. Did the sunset kayak tour which was really nice. Entertainment crew were fun and very nice - they worked hard all day!

    Hotel Stay

    It was the first time we stayed We loved the hotel place. The staffs very nice. The scenery is breathtaking and exotic animals you will see in their natural environment like monkeys, and iguanas. Many restaurants of site to choose from to eat at. Huge pools to swim in. A place to swim right up to the bar and have a drink poolside.The entire staff throughout the hotel, and restaurants, very incredibly friendly. Whatever you want they are always willing to help with a smile. Beautiful beach swimming everyday also kayaking I would recommend staying here the first chance you get.

    Excellent all inclusive resort!

    This was a fabulous all inclusive, rooms were clean very open , staff super friendly and great food! Excursions were fun and they picked you up at the resort! The resort was far off the main areas making you feel like far out in jungle with the monkeys!

    Renewing vows

    We have booked a vacation at this resort for a very special occasion in November. My wife and I, along with 2 other couples, are looking to renew our vows. We have 15-20 joining us at the resort for the week and are trying to set up a small ceremony (nothing extravagant) for all 3 couples and some tables set aside, for our group, for dinner afterwards. It really seems to be much more complicated than it should be at this resort. We have always enjoyed our stay at a number of the Dreams & Secrets Resorts before and have seen tables set up for large groups, many times, but this does not seem to be something we can do easily. We have been in contact with the event planner at the resort but they haven't been as helpful as we hoped. So, I am trying a different route to hopefully get something set up. Hope to hear from someone at the resort that might be able to help us

    Expectations fulfilled!

    Dreams las mareas is a beautiful property located on a secluded and calm beach on the pacific. The grounds and views are lush and the pools are gorgeous. This is definitely a place to relax and unwind. Like other all inclusives, it’s a large property but our room view felt more secluded which I liked. It’s a great place for kids and my daughter loved the swim out room with all the pool options. The staff are helpful and were fluent in English (which we greatly appreciate). My husband and daughter really enjoyed the ATV excursion they booked on site and I enjoyed lounging in a hammock on the beach in the shade. We were fortunate to have preferred club access so the private area was nice because it was pleasantly crowded at the resort. The food was solidly good like at other all inclusives - plentiful and good. The spa was outstanding. My daughter liked that they had a spa menu for kids and teens (really a nice addition) and we very much enjoyed our massages together. The spa was very accommodating to allow us be together in the same room. The spa facilities are spectacular - spacious and relaxing. Definitely recommend the spa. The entertainment at night was fun as well because this is a secluded location, so it was nice to have night options. The resort app was a must get. You can use it to communicate to housekeeping and other services. While we didn’t make use of our personal concierge, Diego called to check in and make sure we were having a delightful time which was a nice touch. Overall it was exactly what we wanted for a few days of relaxation as a family!
