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