I highly recommend Los Suenos. We stayed in a Del Mar condo for a full week and felt spoiled the entire week. There are many restaurants to choose from, the restaurants are excellent, and the people are the friendliest I've ever met. We rented a golf cart to get around the resort and for short distances off the resort. For longer distances off the resort we had a driver who we got to know quite well and was so friendly. I definitely would not recommend for the beach there, but we knew that going in, so we weren't disappointed. There are plenty of other beaches to travel to. Just a few things we did that weren't too far....zip lining, Manuel Antonio hike, monkey tour (highlight!), crocodile tour (crazy and loved it!), and so many real authentic restaurants. Costa Rica is a beautiful country with beautiful proud people.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a 3rd floor Del Mar bldg C condo that overlooks 1 of the pools. Mountain view gorg...

First of all, I am not connected to the resort at all....this is an honest review and I was not asked to write this by anyone! Our family of five (including three daughters ages 20, 18 and 13) stayed for a week in the Colinas condos that were part of the CR Luxury Resorts that are part of the Los Suenos Marriott resort property. Our condo was absolutely beautiful and was walking distance to the Marriott hotel, a beach club exclusively for condo visitors, the Marina and the golf course. The grounds of this resort are lovely! Our tours were booked through Alonso and we went ziplining ...incredible, 1/2 hour tram ride up and 10 super safe ziplines down over beautiful scenery; went to Carara biological preserve where we saw snakes and crocodiles (from afar via telescope), monkeys, and some beautiful birds. My girls took surfing lessons in Jaco (by the way, Jaco reviews aren't great but teenagers love Jaco, t-shirt shops, lots of teens, surf camps, etc). My husband played two rounds of golf early in the day and loved it. The biggest surprise was wonderful restaurants ... El Galeon, superb and we're New Yorkers! The Hook Up, not like its name, a beautiful open air second floor restaurant over looking the harbor, the breakfast room at the hotel had lovely food (order off the menu). I was worried about insects/little critters, not a one in our condo. All in all, an absolutely beautiful country with lovely people. p.s. Jose quesada at CRluxury Resorts booked us with transportation which was with a very safe driver in a very safe van, something you really appreciate going over the mountain road from San Jose to Jaco.

Our family of four stayed in one of the 2 bedroom condos in the Los Colinas area of the Los Suenos Resort the week of Christmas. We traveled with eight other members of our extended family who stayed in three other condos in the complex.

We had a very good stay there -- the private pools (2) in the complex were never crowded, there is a small workout facility with two treadmills, two ellipticals, free weights, Cybex multi station and exercise mats and ball. Everything was in good shape.

Our condo was spacious, nicely furnished with a well-equipped kitchen. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a good sized living room, dining area, kitchen and patio.

The residential condo complexes have their own pool and beach club separate from the Marriott. It was awesome. After staying at several resorts during Christmas week when you must get up at the crack of dawn to reserve lounge chairs, it was a great relief to show up any time during the day and get a chair. There is a swim up bar (cash only) and lunch can be delivered to you from a nearby restaurant. We thought the prices were reasonable compared to other resorts we have stayed at in Cabo, Caymans and Hawaii.

From the beach club (really a pool club because the beach is not great) you can walk over to the Marriott for meals (3-4 minutes) or to the marina (5 minutes) through a pretty arbor. The grounds are beautiful and very nicely landscaped.

We had good food at El Galeon, Bambu, Hook Up and Lanterna in the marina. There a high end food store there if you want to buy steaks or other food to cook. There's an ATM, internet cafe and coffee shop at the marina, too.

I would not recommend renting a car for your first time in Costa Rica. We had a car with GPS and still got really lost. The drive from the airport to Los Suenos is difficult and I would recommend arranging transportation to the hotel. You could rent a car once you get to the hotel, but there are many tours available with transportation, so you could get by without one.

We did the Canopy zipline tour which was awesome plus a tour of Manuel Antonio Park with a guide which I would also recommend. The guides have telescopes which make it easier to see the sloths and monkeys high in the trees.

The golf course at Los Suenos is excellent. Three members of our party played 3 times and loved it.

Jaco is not worth touring, but there are some good restaurants there. We went to all you can eat lobster night at Hicaco which was really good. It's right on the beach and there was a local band playing. I've heard good things about Hotel Poseidon and Pacific Bistro, but we didn't make it to them this trip.

If you are looking for a relaxing stay with some fun things to do, I would recommend Los Suenos Resort.
