Dreams Las Mareas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We visited this hotel over Christmas 2017 /2018. Initial check in and check out were really slow, when you have a young family this is very frustrating, they must know how many people they are expecting. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the Resturant and pool staff were amazing especially Jose at the pool. The pools are beautifully clean as are the grounds and restaurants. We up graded to a junior suite with jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was actually just a large bath and the room was quite small (for 4 of us). Entertainment the week leading to Christmas was very poor it seemed to step up its game new year onwards. We lost a few items and was disappointed they were never handed in. It was like sun bed wars every morning! I once looked out at 5am and people had been out that early to put towels out, many sun beds were just held and not used. I think they need some subbed rules! There are plenty of eateries all of which we enjoyed. For all I’ve complained above it was a fabulous place and we had a great holiday and will probably return.
The pool waiter Jose was exceptional as were Nenia, Need, Claudi, and Suan in the preferred club.We will be returning in the near future. Room could have been bigger but it was still nice. Food was very good
Recently returned from a one week stay at Dreams. Beautiful resort! The food is very good - staff is very friendly - rooms and entire resort was very clean. The only "bad" experience was at the mexican restaurant. Our waiter was somewhat rude and not attentive. We ate there our first night so initially concerned that this was going to be the norm. But we were very wrong - each server was very helpful and attentive.
We travelled as a family 2 adults and 2 children to Dreams las Mareas. The resort was beautiful and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The restaurants were very easy to attend and the food was great. We stayed for 7 days and had amazing weather the whole time and enjoyed the lovely pools and events the resort offered. Overall our stay was amazing the only part we were not pleased with is if you do not get up at 6:00 A.M. every morning and dump a pile of stuff on a lounge chair forget about sitting poolside ever!!! Of course you can always rent a cabana for an added fee!
We stayed from January 8-15 with wife, my two adult sons and their wives. This has been the 11th all-inclusive I have stayed in. I want to start by saying everything you have read that is bad, as I did before we arrived, is wrong. This is a fabulous hotel staffed by friendly and attentive staff. My wife and I stayed in the preferred rooms and totally recommend it to all. The preferred club, staffed with Dania and others was our home away from home. Coffee in the morning. A drink and snack after leaving the pool. Then cocktails and appetizers before dinner. Top shelf liquor. The only place I could get my Grey Goose vodka. And Dania made Costa Rican coffee that you can't get any where else.We stayed in building 2 and it was not noisy. Great jacuzzi tub on the deck. Plus a big enough area to have a cocktail party with our son's and wives.The grounds are immaculate. The workers keep it so clean and well maintained. Plus we had no bugs in our rooms. We ate outdoors everyday at the buffet for breakfast. They had a man whose sole job was to keep the birds away and he did a great job. Speaking of breakfast..my whole family agreed that the food was outstanding. And to refute some of the reviews I read, it had Costa Rican food everyday. If that is what you wanted..they had it,.All of the restaraunts were great. To prove a point, although there were six of us, we could not agree on what was the best. Everyone of them got a vote. We never had a bad meal. The steak place made them to order perfectly and if you wanted chowder from the seafood restaurant that was not a problem. I am not a fan of Mexican food, but I had a fabulous meal (the shrimp and octopus pasta..outstanding). What a cook we had at the Tapanaki restaurant. He served us a tuna we caught as sashimi and on the grill. And the Barefoot grill for lunch is the place to go. The cooks are outstanding and serve food all afternoon.The pools are many and great. Yes you have to reserve chairs. But what I did was get a cabana. Daniel the pool concierge was fantastic. Plus, after the first two days, it was not as crowded and getting a chair not a problem. Plus my family liked laying on the beach which was empty. And the pool bar was great as well. Our thanks to Orlando for making us many delicious drinks. Plus the entertainment crew works hard. Jesus and his friends are really good guys. We did water aerobics, water volleyball and music trivia.We were lucky, the weather was outstanding. 80's and sunny everyday. We came down to the pool and beach area and never left until sunset. We took one excursion but otherwise just had fun relaxing and enjoying the grounds and water. Plus on one day the Monkeys came to the trees on the beach by the pool. What fun it was to watch all five of them playing in the trees.I can go on and on, but don't believe the negative reviews. I read that the sand at the beach is bad, the music too loud at the pool, there are skunks and raccoons at night (never saw one skunk and the raccoons were cute and harmless), the food mediocre, the staff unfriendly. NONE OF THIS IS TRUE.My recommendation is go. To see Costa Rica we spent four days inland at the Heliconias Nature Lodge before going to Dreams. Look that place up, because it was great. We did all the excursions from there and then spent a week enjoying and relaxing at Dreams. That is the way to see the country. But Dreams is top notch. 5 star in my book.
