I recently visited this resort with my BEBW Family, Sisters, and Sorors. We all enjoyed our stay. The resort was very well kept and the staff was friendly and beyond helpful. I highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a top notch experience

Dreams Las Mareas—beautiful but rainy in summer.

DelaRudy on Jul 13, 2024

We were unaware that it was the rainy season in Costa Rica. The first day, it rained 24 hours continuously. We did have sunny weather for 4 days we were there. Las Mareas is a beautiful property on the very edge of a rainforest. Monkeys were scarce but spotted a few times as well as lizards and beautiful birds. The pools are massive, lots of chairs. But on sunny days, people reserve them early. We had a family group of 11, so we were happy to learn the concierge would accept reservations for dinner starting at 8 am the same day. UVC members can reserve for the week, however they aren’t usually at their desk in the Preferred lounge, so we opted to use the concierge. Portofino, however, does not accept reservations at all, so you just wait for an opening. The Seaside Grill becomes a steakhouse at night and serves a respectable steak. Be aware path is not well lit getting there, which is close to the beach. Bring bug spray! Mosquitoes and other bugs are plentiful in this environment. The rooms are comfortable, and there is a curtain the separates bedroom from bathroom fixtures. There were a few parties that lasted into evening hours, so if you go to bed early, you might consider using a sound machine. We did and it helped quite a bit. We did a snorkeling boat trip and some of us did a 17 hour volcano, rainforest and hot springs trip. The latter was long because the trip to and from the resort was 3 hours each way. Plus, rain had caused down trees which made the trip even longer. We have been to many Dreams resorts and not sure we would return to this one. We live on the east coast so the journey to Costa Rica was long and involved the dreaded connections and layovers. Add to that the rain, the bugs and maybe not a good fit for us. If you love ecological environments and still want creature comforts, you will enjoy this resort and traveling about this country.

I would definitely return.

The service provided during my stay at Dreams Las Mareas was exceptional. I was there on leisure for BEBW and even with the exceptionally large group the workers were very pleasant accommodating and attentive to every need. The room was clean and well stocked with all necessities. Food was very tasteful and plentiful options and cuisines. I visited the spa during my stay and it definitely was relaxing and the atmosphere was very calming.

needs to work in the customer service and the drinks at the bar there is not too many options, they will charge you for using the sits around the pool you have to go super early to use the free one. I think this are the worst things, other than that the resort is awesome, the polls are super big and the beach is beautifull, lot of activities to choosed in Costa Rica, don't flight from San Jose because is 5 hours away use liberia airport

This was our first experience at an all inclusive and Dreams didn't disappoint. We enjoyed the upgraded preferred status with stocked bar, private check in, private bar, etc. All of the staff went above and beyond in order to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. The spa is absolutely gorgeous! We had the best experience from check in until after we were done with our massages.
