Fantastic trip!

Los Suenos was amazing! We got the all inclusive package and we were expecting an underrated American buffet or something...But the cuisine was outstanding; it was Costa Rican and delicious. Even room service and tip were included in the package! The hotel was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only downside of this hotel was the beach. It was warm and you could get it, but it's a bit rocky. You wouldn't want to lay out on the beach. And there's no chairs or umbrellas out there anyway, even if you did want to lay out.

Fantastic trip! Fantastic trip!

Best vacation ever!

My husband and I stayed at Los Suenos the week of 12/5/2011 and used the all inclusive escape package. We had an absolutely fabulous time. The accomodations were beautiful and wonderful. Although they were repainting part of the hotel and lighthouse it was all done during the daytime and usually ended at 5 pm. Luckily our room was on the opposite side of the hotel so that we were not bothered by the painters nor the paint fumes. Our room was spotless and I loved the fact that they offered a refresher in the pm...I mostly liked the yummy chocolates that they would leave for us every night!! The food was amazing and the service was awesome. The managers at the front desk were very helpful with information. We did learn the hard way about making international calls and not utilizing a calling card that was purchased at the hotel. After a lengthy discussion the front desk manager Royer forgave the connection charge and instructed us to use their service instead. Lesson learned! Make sure you ask the wait staff if certain items are included in your all incluse package. Generally they are very helpful and usually know that you are using the all incluse but just to make sure don't be afraid to ask. Also it would have been nice to have free wifi available or at least offer it at a reduced price ..But otherwise it was wonderful and hope to go back some day!!!

Huge Disappointment

This resort was the Spirit Airlines of resorts! They charge you for EVERYTHING! Their ALL Inclusive package, referred to as the Escape Inclusive Package, had many EXCLUSIONS! These EXCLUSIONS came with a surcharge of course! I was afraid to fully take advantage of this pricey to begin with package because I was uncertain of whether I would receive a bill upon checkout, eventhough I paid for the package upfront! The resort also leaves you to fend for yourself in trying to find ground transportation from the airport to the resort. Only PRIVATE shuttle or taxi service is offered; the cheapest rate I could find was $100 ONE-WAY through Costa Rica Holiday Rentals! The only other way to get to the resort is by renting a car and driving there yourself. This is the cheapest option, however, I did not feel comfortable renting a car in a country I had never traveled to and did not speak the language very well. The resort also was rather small; it looked bigger online. There was no evening entertainment of any sort. Thus, it was boring! You could take the hotel shuttle, which was $8 round trip, to the nearest town, Jaco, to search for entertainment, but you won't find much. The bottom line is that I will NEVER return to Los Suenos Marriott Ocean and Golf resort!

Aug.7-14 Vacation for couple

We went to CR to enjoy the rain forest and wanted to be on the beach with a pool at an all inclusive resort. The location was important so we could get to various parks for tours. We used the Swiss Travel agency located in the hotel for all of our tours and were very pleased with their service. It was pricey, but the tour guides were very informative and able to point out the animals & attractions we wanted to see. We really enjoyed tour guides knowledge & enthusiasm of the history and environment of CR. The Marriott property was as gorgeous as we expected. The only dissapointment was the beach had no clear water. The pool was really nice, clean, with a swim up bar. The drinks at the pool bar were quite heavy on the alcohol and frozen drinks not frozen. Maybe it was because of a trainee bartender, because the same drinks were great at all the other bars. There was no lifeguard at the pool. We didn't have any problems with lounge chairs and finding umbrellas to get some shade. During our stay we used Marriott points for two nights and didn't get the all inclusive package during those 2 nights. We found the restaurant menu prices to be expensive and were careful about what we ordered at each meal. We took a cab to the local grocery store to get extra water, drinks, & snacks so we weren't charged 3 times as much for the same brand bottled water in the hotel. The other 5 nights we switched to the all inclusive plan. Because we had to check out & back in, the hotel was accomodating and able to keep us in the same room.

What's to Love

La Iguana Golf Course, an 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by Ted Robinson Jr., is a golfer's dream. Jungle and ocean views really amp up the experience.

 

What We'd Change

Though the resort's beachfront is beautiful, it is pretty rocky. A good pair of flip-flops or water shoes solves the snag easily!

Hotel Description

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort: Explore Your Inner Monkey Fun

If gliding through the trees on a canopy tour and coming face to face with a monkey sounds like your idea of a good time, then grab the whole family and head for the award-winning Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort. The eco-tourism surrounding the resort's Pacific beachfront and 1,100-acre tropical rainforest is one reason Travel + Leisure thinks this Los Suenos resort is one of the "World's Best." Fantasy becomes reality at Los Suenos (Spanish for "the dreams"), where families play together or just bask around the horizon pool.

Take a stroll along the storybook shoreline and breathe in the fresh air before cooling off with the kids in the oceanside horizon pool. Grown-ups can swim up to the Zoe Pool Bar for coconut mojitos while the little ones splash around the kiddie pool. Make sure to bring along your appetite because six restaurants are destined to please! From Costarican Cuisine at Hacienda Kitchen and 18 & Greene, our steakhouse serves succulent meals and an assortment of classic side dishes, like sandwiches and pastries, at our 24-hour Casa del Cafe. Pub fare and fresh hand-rolled cigars make Bar 8 a late-night hotspot!

Lazy days or fun-filled activities--families spend their vacation any way that suits them best at this Los Suenos resort. Kids love scoping out wildlife on eco-walks, and water volleyball gets the whole family active. Mix learning and laughter with Spanish language and Latin dance classes. Avid golfers can tee off at the 18-hole La Iguana Golf Club, designed by Ted Robinson, Jr., and you really deserve a little pampering with facials and massages at Sibo Rainforest Spa & Retreat.

The resort requires $30 in taxes fees, which includes: internet upgrade, valet parking, 15 min of free long distance phone call, use of tennis courts (2 hours), driving range with balls, ping pong, kid souvenir activity, pool floats, daily fire pit by the beach, access to the sauna, steam room or Jacuzzi and framed family pic (one per family; 3-night min.)
