    My family and I (kids ages 11 & 13) loved every second of our stay at Dream Las Mareas. The beds were comfy, the resort is in great condition, the landscaping is as amazing as the views of Costa Rica but I have to say, what really took our experience to the next level was the staff. I am vegan and my daughter is vegetarian and they went out of their way to accommodate our dietary needs. They asked us at each restaurant which was very nice and the chef at each restaurant made a point to explain what they had made us and assure us it was vegan or vegetarian. One waiter, Gilchrist at the World Cafe went above and beyond to create a wonderful dining experience every time we saw him. Another huge bonus was the entertainment staff - what a fun group!! Whenever we saw Jeffrey appear, we knew a good time was about to happen! He had us laughing and dancing and participating in everything! I would have never believed my 13 year old daughter would be up for water aerobics or dance lessons but even she couldn't say no to Jeffrey and the rest of the staff. We had such a great time as a family playing pool volleyball, beach volleyball and its all because of the dynamic group from the entertainment crew. Nighttime was good too but we didnt last long after such full, fun days! Great job Dreams Las Mareas - you have put the right people in the right places to ensure everyone who stays with you has a fantastic experience. We also rented a car and drove from Liberia with no problems. We did some snorkeling, my husband went on the bike tour while I was at morning yoga and he enjoyed it very much. I hope we find our way back someday, we did not want to leave!

    Was told by the front desk, someone would be over in 15 minutes to fix the air conditioning...3 days later someone finally showed up at 11pm. Our room also had ants, and I told the front desk, and yet again. No one showed up to fix the problem!

    We stayed here for our Honeymoon in June 2019. It was a beautiful resort, and we had a great time. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We did a tour with a local guy on the beach instead of -one of the full day trips that were available through the resort. It was awesome and we were able to see and support local business. One down side for us was that since this was a family friendly resort, the night life was not very lively. If that's what you're looking for, I would look into another resort. Instead, if you're looking for it to be calm and relaxing, there's a hydrotherapy circuit that you can use at the spa for only $35 for the day. In my opinion, it would be completely worth it.

    Loved staying at the Dreams in Las Mareas. We just got back yesterday. Very beautiful grounds! The pool was a big hit for the kids, the beach was great as well. So much wildlife around, making it extra special. I’m so happy we went during “wet season”, everything was green and lush. This is our second Dreams resort and we are pleased with the majority of our experience. Some of my only cons are the organization of checking in and out with little help on having questions answered. The room was great and exactly what we’d asked for, only downfall was our balcony jacuzzi didn’t work. That was a bummer. Loved the staff, friendly but it’s make obviouse it’s a “job”. Drinks were great, however disappointed that they liquor was so watered down outside the Preferred lounge. Restaurants offered a ton of variety. portofino was great and the hibachi was on point. Not super organized and could be better in that realm. Overall, highly recommend and we had an absolute blast. I wouldn’t be opposed to coming back in the future!

    Where do I start???

    OK...I'm in my room on my last day here at Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica. I traveled here with friends for my annual birthday trip. The resort's grounds are beautiful. I generally stay in Preferred Club Ocean View suites but I opted for Tropical View this time based on previous reviews. My friends chose the basic junior suite. Their view was actually better than mine. The tropical view I have is basically a tree. My room itself is beautiful and had everything I could ever need. The shower was a little cumbersome for me but not a major issue. One of my friends has not had a working shower since we arrived. The first day was ice cold. The rest have been scalding hot. Her requests for repairs have simply been ignored. You are supposed to be able to make calls to the US, however, my phone has not been able to dial out. My attempts to get help have also been filed away in the same folder as my friend's. Though you see areas marked Ice... Don't be fooled like me and go from floor in heat and humidity trying to get a non-functioning machine to work. You have to request ice through room service so I'm not sure why these decoy ice machines are planted in the building. The service here otherwise has been amazing. The food at the restaurants is spectacular. The bartenders are fabulous. We actually found our favorite bartender at the poolside bar named Aleudy. We noticed people asking him when he worked again and where he would be and quickly found out why. Regardless of how busy it got, he remained attentive to every guest and always wore a smile. Additionally, his drinks were delicious. Sooo... Here ends another birthday trip. Would I come back to this resort? Probably not. Would I recommend the resort to others? Yes but with warnings of our bad experiences.
