Overview

A sprawling golf and spa resort between rain forest and a black sand beach less than two hours from San Jose

The Look

A Spanish colonial palace. Resting alongside 1,100 acres of tropical rainforest and a black sand beach, the lavish hotel is done up with hand-painted floor tiles, towering vaulted ceilings and tropical hardwood and wrought iron detailing. It’s the work of Costa Rica’s most famous architect, Ronald Zurcher, who clearly enjoyed himself at Los Sueños.

Bed and Bath

All 201 guestrooms feel spacious, with yellow tile floors, Spanish colonial–style hardwood furniture and colorful curtains. Most look out at the manicured grounds and on to the mountains, but rooms at the front of the property have private balconies and views of the crescent-shaped bay. Bathrooms are clean and cookie-cutter in colored granite, with stand-alone showers or deep Jacuzzi tubs.

Beyond

Outside, almond and fruit trees surround a sprawling and intricate system of pools, swim-up bars and an enormous fountain. On the dining front, La Vista restaurant serves a tasty gourmet breakfast (try the patacones with tomato ceviche and the refried beans with a quail egg), while Nuevo Latina focuses on modern Caribbean/South American fusion fare. Golfers shouldn’t miss a round on the Iguana course, ensconced in tropical dry forest, and parents can relax in the Sibö Spa while youngsters play and practice their Spanish in the Tortuga Kids Club.

Beautiful and Relaxing Stay
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Me and my friends visited this hotel for a weekend getaway and we had a great a time. The hotel is beautiful and everyone is really nice. The girl at the front desk and the people at the restaurants provided a great service and made us feel welcome. Everyone is attentive and kind. The pools are very nice and you can also walk to the Herradura Beach or Marina beach through the hotel.
I recommend this hotel for visiting and staying in Herradura and also seeing some very big Iguanas sun bathing!

Pura Vida in Herradura

I usually wait until the end of the trip to write a review but the service provided by Fernando and Fernanda at the front desk, Cesar at the Concierge desk, Bismarck at the valet, Morgan in the pool area and Indalecio Rocha Ibarra in the Hacienda Restaurant has been no less than spectacular. My wife and I came here for our annual anniversary trip to have a weeklong date and reconnect away from the hustle and bustle of work, traffic and this year the ongoing political crisis in our country that has divided our great nation. We've only been here 3 1/2 days so far but they have all made us feel like we've been old friends for a long time. I've attached photos of the views from the Hacienda Restaurant where they provide the complimentary breakfast.

I'm a Marriott Platinum member and have been blessed to stay in some of their best resort properties in Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Ritz in Maui, and some of the Florida resorts on the Keys, and Naples area and this is by far the best property and experience so far. Although under remodel, the property has been kept up nicely over its 20 years. The pool area, beach, rooms, restaurants, bars, shops and golf are very comfortable and welcoming. If I could give the resort a 4.5 I would as the only issue I've had so far is delayed food service poolside. Morgan has done a great job keeping our drinks filled and chilled poolside but for some reason, the kitchen is delayed in giving him the apps at the same time as the drinks. Can't wait for the second half of our stay.
