Dream vacation at the Dreams

North Bay, Canada

We traveled from April 14-21, 2019 to Dreams Las Mareas. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we had a mountain view with plenty of Monkeys visiting daily. The resort itself is very luscious and clean with an abundance of wildlife. We didn’t use the pools however their was always chairs available. The beach is amazing. The water is beautiful and clear and you can snorkel right in front of the resort. If you are adventurous during low tide you can walk for miles to the right with amazing rock formations. The food was delicious. We enjoyed every al a carte. The seafood at the oceanna was our favourite. We were lucky enough to catch a Tuna and the chef did an amazing job cooking for us. We had sashimi, ceviche, lightly battered and pan fried. Outstanding. The staff were overall amazing. Extremely friendly and the service was great. A special thank you to Paola from the Rendezvous bar. We forgot our camera on the table on our first night and when we came back the next day she had put it aside for us. I am extremely thankful. The only few thing we didn’t like was checkin. We travel often and it was a little slow with needless paper work. On a side note if you need to see the doctor at the resort you will pay anywhere from $120-150 USD. The paramedics are free however. The resort is isolated and if you want to do tours expect to spend most of the day traveling. We did a sunset sail at the resort which was amazing. We did a separate review. The resort has kayaks, bikes, snorkel gear to available. Overall we had an amazing week at Dreams Las Mareas. Great weather, people, food, drinks, and service. We highly recommend this resort.

Absolutely beautiful resort. Food was just okay. Service was horrible. We arrived on a Friday and requested to upgrade to a swim out room. Unfortunately there weren’t any available that day, which we totally understood, so we stayed in the original room that we booked until the next day when swim out rooms became available. Swim out rooms are an upgrade to premium which is supposed to include high end alcohol in the room as well as a premium lounge, that was nice, and the swim out pool. The refrigerator in our room was shy of drinks. We called twice to get it filled, which we were told someone would be there shortly, no one ever showed up. I spoke to the person who delivered room service in the morning, he also said he’d take care of it. Once again, that didn’t happen. Called mid afternoon again, no one showed up. After all those attempts, I decided to make a visit to the front desk in person. After complaining and speaking to a manager, Russell, he finally sent someone to fill up the refrigerator as it was supposed to be. I requested one days’ upgrade cost back, and it was denied. It is definitely not worth it to upgrade at Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica. Most employees barely speak English. Twice we ordered food at two different restaurants and we did not get what we asked for due to language barrier. We did run into three employees who spoke English well and were very nice. Best employee for us during our stay was Sheile from entertainment. She was amazing. We ran into her every day. Her smile, friendliness, and energy was outstanding. We loved her. Again, beautiful resort, but I don’t recommend upgrading to premium, not worth it. Also, if customer service and quality of food is important to you, then you might want to try a different resort. If I do go back to Costa Rica, I will try a different resort myself.
