    First time in Costa Rica, hopefully not our last. Resort is about 1 1/2 hours from airport. No problem, we rented a car from Avis for 11 days for $216.00cdn. Beautiful scenery along the way, sugar cane fields and plenty of cows. Main highway is great to travel on, its the side roads that are a pain. Lots of potholes, so beware when driving at night. The check-in was a little slow as the computers were down. We avoided the club salespeople as we are already UVC members. The room was very clean, huge and open. Nice balcony with a table a a couple of chairs to sit and enjoy a couple of pops. There was a nice bath on the balcony as well. We did use it to soak away the stiffness after a day of touring. The mini bar had beer, regular and diet pop as well as some juice and water. It was restocked on a daily basis. Th food was amazing. I don't know what people complain about! Do they eat a 5 star restaurants everyday? For breakfast, the buffet was ample. Freshly cooked omlettes and eggs as well as a variety of other side dishes. We only ate at the dinner buffet once, just to try it. We had the a-la-carte to eat at. They were all great. The Seaside Grill for steaks was AMAZING!! When we go out my girlfriend sometimes has a steak and she is always cutting off excess fat. At the end of the meal, there is a stack of fat. I was amazed to see that she didn't cut off one piece of unwanted steak. No exaggeration. The Oceana for seafood was really good. The Portofino italian was really good as well. The service for all was very adequate. Who is in a rush to eat when you are surrounded by nature? None of these required a reservation, only Himitsu, the Japanese restaurant. If you wanted the meal cooked in front of you as a show, you need a reservation, otherwise the other part of the restaurant doesn't. For lunch, we usually snacked at the Barefoot Grill.Burgers, hot dogs, and the like. There are plenty of pools to suit your needs. People are always saving chairs, but there were plenty to chose from without looking hard.The grounds are very clean, well maintained and sprawling. But not too much to be a pain to get around. The resort is about 5 years old and in great condition. The beach is very nice. At low tide you can snorkel around the rocks and see plenty of colorful fish sea urchins and puffer fish. Enough chairs to go around. Great view at night for the sunset also. I have a pretty bad memory for names,but all the staff were exceptional. I tip my hat to all of them. The entertainment was good. These guys and gals work hard to get everyone motivated. I would definitely go back again. Costa Rica is beautiful to begin with, but this experience at Dreams Las Mareas put a exclamation point on it.

    Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica is beautiful. Ten pools, starting right at the beach. Rooms are nice, and the food is pretty good as well. It was really neat to see tree monkeys right on our beach, and the resort itself is like a tropical paradise with different flowers and foliage. The staff is wonderful, especially Mauricio, he always ensures that you are having a great time. His nature walk is worth doing as our the many activities that the entertainment staff run, like the sunset kayak and bike tour. This is the 7th resort I’ve stayed at, and quite possibly the best in many ways. It doesn’t have the white sand that some other places have, and the nightly entertainment is not as good as at their Tulum location. Though, all around a really great place/experience.

    This resort is amazing. The service is excellent and the employees are truly happy and wonderful. We loved everything about the resort! Great food, gorgeous pools, and the beach is perfect. Our room was beautiful and the cleanest room we have ever stayed in! The landscaping is beautiful as well. You won’t be sorry if you choose Dreams for your next vacation! One last comment! The resort was full and you could still get a group of four plus chairs poolside any time you wish!

    Thanks Roberto

    Beautiful resort with very friendly staff. Johnny at the activities desk went above and beyond and always had a smile. Karen and Vininco at the restaurants also deserve applaud as they were always making sure everyone was taken care! We had a room with pool which was nice and definitely worth the upgrade. Although there is not a lack of pools at this resort, more than any other all inclusive I have seen. The food at restaurants was just ok except for the Asian which was amazing as well as the Steak House. We had to actually get up and leave the Italian restaurant because my partners lamb was actually inedible and obviously old/rotten. Not great. Our main concern with this resort is the fact that our WIFI router was stolen out of our room. You can put a sign on door and even turn on their “red do not disturb light” and yet they still come into room to stock fridge (happened twice while we were in room) This needs to be addressed immediately!!
