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.
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.
How to Get There
We just returned from a 5-night stay at Los Suenos. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality from all of the employees at the resort. Marlon and Fernando at the Front Desk went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Catelyn and Leo at the bar were also a pleasure.
The food at the restaurants on-site is excellent especially The Hacienda for breakfast. We also enjoyed the restaurants at the marina.
Our suite was perfect and the view was worth every penny! Housekeeping also did a very good job while we were there.
The beach is definitely not a white sandy beach but with beach shoes you can still enjoy the beach and ocean.
We are looking forward to bringing our family back to Los Suenos very soon!
Such a beautiful, well-kept resort with the best service. The pools are expansive, the oceanfront just outside the resort is stunning, and equipped with the kindest staff that do everything they can to make your visit perfect! Although we spent most of our time hiking and exploring what Costa Rica had to offer, every night we returned to this awesome, luxurious spot and we would not have had it any other way. We are a young couple, so I have to admit the Disney movies by the poolside at night were so fun to attend! Additionally, they went above and beyond for my birthday by providing sparkling wine and cake and a perfect room. We did finalize on this resort specifically due to friends who had been prior guests who all provided excellent reviews. However, they all said that they were provided with brunch coupons. Although, when we inquired about such, they said these coupons did not exist. Otherwise, overall, great experience!
This hotel and resort is gorgeous and right next to a beautiful marina and a local beach
within Herradura Bay. Our group had two ocean front rooms with fantastic views and balconies with a hammock, table & 2 chair. We stayed here in early May and had perfect weather. The hotel staff goes above and beyond. We booked excursions ahead of time through Piko Travel, which I highly recommend. We spent the afternoons and evenings hanging around the resort and pool. The restaurants around there had great food. Stay here.. you won't regret it!
Rooms were dated but the resort as a whole was lovely. Lots of dining options, and a nice walk to the marina. The pools are absolutely fantastic. Though there is an ocean right behind the resort, there is no beach. Dirty, rough water. Had a nice stay here.
This property is beautiful. Service is excellent. Food is great. Rooms are large.
This property is in a gated community of private homes and marina. Definitely go to The Hookup for drinks and or food. Walking distance through manicured grounds.
There is NO BEACH. No chairs on what I describe as mud out there. The view is gorgeous but this property is definitely a pool only hotel.
We were here for waterfall hiking anyway but would have been beyond disappointed if thought we were beachfront.
