    Variety food, the cousinee bestest in the country!! exceptional pool schedule! 6:00 am a 10:00 pm the property is very large, the hotel may be full that does not feel. You don't have to make reservations at the restaurants, although you had to wait not to book it is a relief. The room service menu is the largest I've ever known

    Beautiful Resort But It Has Drawbacks

    First, let me say that this resort is very beautiful with it's lush surroundings and large rooms. I found the resort and staff to be very nice. The pool areas are beautiful and you might see a lot of creatures roaming about in the lush vegetation. If you are looking to spend time on the beach, however, I would suggest another property. It's a very large Resort and you sometimes find that you need to call for a tram to take you where you're going. The beach here is really not the beautiful beach you want. The hotel even warns you that you should be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the locals on the beach and to NOT interact with them or buy excursions or merchandise from them. This is a VERY REMOTE property with absolutely nothing to see or do within a one hour drive. The road leading to the property is full of potholes and you bounce along for at least 30 minutes once you turn off the mail road. To actually see or do any activities, you will need to buy a tour or hire a driver. Ordinarily, we love AM Resorts, but I crossed this one off my list.

    We have just returned to England after 2 fabulous weeks at Dreams. Hotel room spacious, clean and huge comfortable bed with mini bar topped up daily. Pools - out of this world. All fantastic and relaxing. Loved the adults pool as nice to be able to fully relax. Service round the pools great and also at the swim up bar. Food - breakfast brilliant! Something for everyone. All restaurants excellent, the Italian our favourite but the seaside grill during the day particularly delicious with stunning views. Sunsets amazing. Rendezvous bar, the team were all brilliant, big thank you to Paula, Alfonso, Israel and suzette. Everybody we met was super friendly and we loved the whole experience. The trips and experiences were incredible and we loved the country. If you are thinking of visiting then do it.

    We loved everything about our stay at Dreams in Costa Rica. The resort was everything you expect and more! For any soon to be bride that is considering a destination wedding here, DO IT. The staff and wedding coordinator were so helpful and accommodating to all our request. The resort is so beautiful and such a friendly staff, honestly we could not have been happier. Our wedding day was gorgeous! The staff made sure it was the perfect day and I honestly didn't worry about ANYTHING on the day of my wedding. Andrea, the wedding coordinator took care of everything. She was so easy to work with and made sure everything was perfect for the day of my wedding. The resort has several restaurant options so your friends and family will have plenty to pick from. We were there long enough to visit all the restaurants and can tell you all the waitresses and waiters were very kind and patient. The food was very good and the breakfast buffet had tons of exotic fresh fruit that was DELICIOUS. My family and I loved everything about this resort. I will say the beach front is lacking BUT the pools make up for it! And the pool service was on top of it! They were always checking in and making sure we had everything we needed.

    This resort is amazing, it is so nice and staff is also very welcoming. One thing I have to say though is coming from Texas, we are used to big portions of food at our restaurants. These restaurants in this resort restaurants ALL of them were very tiny. I guess we are expected to eat appetizers and all we are supposed to be full by the main course. But it wasnt like that, we ate at 1 of the several restaurants in the hotel, then still had room to go to the bar for more food. Also the housekeeping and bell service are so nice. The only unwelcomed and rude service is at the check in. We were not explained anything. They gave us our room keys and send us away. I would think that check in service would be nicer than the rest if the staff considering it's the 1st people we see. They are the ones that are supposed to set up the expectations for the vacations.
