The resort is located in a beautiful spot overlooking the bay. There are several restaurants on site and all offer decent food. Our favorite was the sushi bar - ramen was delicious. Service at the pool was good; servers were very attentive, as was the hotel housekeeping staff. Our room was serviced every afternoon while we were out, and turned down most nights after returning from dinner. The buildings and facilities were nice, but felt in need of some refreshing. The room itself was spacious and the bathroom was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The spa had good amenities, and the massages were excellent. Overall, a good value for the price. One odd thing about the hotel is it doesn’t have a concierge. We went to one of the service desks during our first day and asked about the restaurants, and the person at the desk made some recommendations and made two reservations for us. Come to find out we had approached the Marriott Club desk, not the concierge. Making dinner reservations for guests isn’t part of their job, but they were apparently happy to assist.
Great hotel with an even better view
We really enjoyed our stay at Los Suenos and would highly recommend. The highlight was our room which was fantastic. It had a perfect view of the ocean (as advertised), was modern and had a nice hammock. We can't overstate just how incredible the view was... The food at the restaurants was really good and there was enough variety for us. The complimentary eco tour was a nice touch. The spa was amazing but we didn't use the amenities there much as a couple, as strangely these were split out by sex. The long winding pool and swim up bar were also a highlight. The staff were incredibly friendly too.
Marriott Los Sueños - A great choice for a comfortable stay and good base to explore Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast.
We rented a car and drove from the San Jose airport to the Marriott Los Sueños resort. Upon arrival the staff greeted us as family, quick valet parking and check in. The resort grounds, open resort lobby and view to the pool/water features made us feel we were on vacation. The room was spacious and well appointed (the hammock was nice to relax in). Our room was garden view but we still had a view of the beach and Herradura bay. We opted for the terrace which was perfect for coffee in the morning and evening bird watching. The resort has several restaurant options which we ate at all but the steak house, all were excellent food with a good variety of options. We put the pool and swim up bar to good use but also walks on the beach and swimming in the warm Pacific Ocean made it tough to choose where to swim. Los Sueños was a great base to explore Carara NP, Manuel Antonio NP, Mareno Ballena NP along with the crocodile bridge and Rainmaker canopy bridges and pools. Our valet gave us great tips on our trips and helped us find the scarlet macaws (they are on Los Sueños property!). Also conveniently located a short walk to the marina. We will be back, Marriott Los Sueños is a great choice when planning a trip to Costa Rica!
That's an A
this is a spectacular location with extremely versatile accommodations, including a huge marina. First, the view from the room was stunning! The beach is not crowded as at some other places along this coast. The breakfast and the restaurant in general were up to the highest standards of hospitality, which I encountered only in Asia. One bit of comic relief was a raccoon that visited the 4th floor's hallway and was noisily trying to snack on the leftovers from room service. Highly recommended and relatively inexpensive resort.
Best Golf near Jaco
Only place to play golf near Jaco. It’s actually a great course with plenty of beautiful views. Both clubs and carts are available for rental. Be prepared to play around water hazards and out of bounds could be tricky. You have access to both food and drinks during your round and they often can accommodate short notices. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the course. Additionally you’ll enter the marina and it’s gives you plenty of after golf eating and drinking options.
