Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • The unique, free-form pool winds through the resort like Venetian canals and is one of the largest in Costa Rica
  • Amenities like a full-service spa, championship golf and kids club are hard to find at surrounding resorts
  • The lush grounds feel never-ending and make for a dreamy getaway

"Premier large resort hotel on the Central Pacific coast" -- Frommer's

As one of Costa Rica's few large-scale resorts, the extensive amenities and impeccable grounds are where the 4-star Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort truly shines. The Spanish-colonial details throughout give the feel of a sprawling hacienda rather than a chain resort. Rooms are light and airy but without the detailed decor of the rest of the resort -- this is a place for vacationers who won't be in the room enough to notice. 

The jewel of the property is the gigantic pool area, a "complex maze with a host of small bridges connecting islands of chaise lounges and lush gardens, interspersed with secret grottoes and quiet corners," (Frommer's) designed to conjure images of Venetian canals and dotted with swim-up bars. The resort's other calling card is the 18-hold championship golf course designed by Ted Robinson, a rare find compared with surrounding resorts. 

Three restaurants, a poolside grill and multiple bars and lounges provide extensive dining options. Some are open late, though these can be pricey options. There are five restaurants within walking distance of the resort, including a bakery and a marina-front restaurant.

The ocean views are stunning and well worth the upgrade to an oceanview room overlooking the calm waters. The beach is rocky -- great for an evening stroll, but daytime beach goers should grab a cab for the 10- to 30-minute drive to gorgeous surrounding beaches. These include Playa Jaco, a lively atmosphere; Playa Hermosa, a white-sand beach popular with surfers; and Manual Antonio National Park, an hour's drive but home to some of the country's best beaches and wildlife reserves.

From the press:
  • "Beautiful rooms, stunning architecture, a lovely 18-hole regulation golf course and one of the largest and most unique pools in the country" -- Frommer's
  • "[The] palatial colonial-style building has a gorgeous view of Herradura Bay and combines modern amenities with traditional Central American decorative motifs" -- Fodor's
