Beautiful Resort

Just returned from our first trip to Dreams Las Mareas. The facility is beautiful, even though it is remote and not near any local cities. The eating options were many, and better food than other resorts we have visited in the past. The staff seemed happy and helpful. Will return in the future!

Living the Dream(s) in Costa Rica
Reviewed 1 day ago

Our vacation at Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica was the most relaxing and happy vacation that we have ever had. It will be a goal from this year on, to continue to attain the serenity that we felt upon our return. There are many factors for these feelings. The Dreams resort was outstanding from every aspect from the staff, to the restaurants, to the pools, to the wildlife on your doorstep and finally to the amenities that we personally did not use but other raved about.

I would like to thank Roberto at reception for ensuring our two weeks got of to a great start. To Ceaser, Rosa, Vivian and the rest of the staff at the World Café, to Alfonso, Mariel and Seidy at the Tortuga Bar, to Martha and Modesta who took care of everything we needed in our room and to Marcela and Carlos at Portofino and El Pointe respectively.

The food at every restaurant that we visited was superb. We normally had breakfast and/or lunch at the World Café, early morning croissants and coffee at Coco Café and more formal dinners at Portofino, El Pointe and Himitsu, where we enjoyed the show at the Teppanyaki table.

During our two weeks in Costa Rica we did three excursions and enjoyed the both exhilaration and the beauty of the countryside and even more wildlife.

The rest of the time we relaxed at the property which is beautiful.

This is our second trip to a Dreams resort, and both have been exceptional.

We will be returning to Dreams Riveria Cancun in late February and look forward to a similar return to Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica in the immediate future.

Extremely Good Property!! Just One Notch Below Great
Reviewed 1 day ago

If you are familiar with Dreams/Secrets this is what I would consider to be a normal resort in their portfolio. The pros! The food at the Italian and Asian restaurants was the best I have ever had and I have been to 9 of these properties. The pool complex was absolutely fabulous! Best pools ever. The food at the pool was very good. The areas for improvement: I am a UVC member. I was traveling with 90 other people. My room was the same as all the people I travelled with. Didn't receive any room upgrade or privileges for being a UVC member. The hotel complex is extremely dark at night. Darker than any other resort I have been to. However, if you are in the main building it is fine. One of the people in my party had a small issue with some locals in the bar at night. Have never seen this at a Dreams/Secrets before. Also, many reviews talk about raccoons. I saw a half dozen raccoons during my 7 night stay. Again was with 90 people and no one had any issues with raccoons. The beach area is small, but there are not other hotels around so it belongs to the guests. If you are traveling to Costa Rica, I would recommend this resort. Overall, like I said very good! I have just had the opportunity to be at a couple resorts in the chain that we're perfect.

from Dreams to reality

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.
