Sunset views of the Pacific Ocean from the Marriott hotel. Good drink selection. Not necessarily a great place for dinner though Marriott has other restaurants on site. The hotel manager approached me while I was having a drink to ask what my thoughts were about the hotel; she is very attentive to detail and it shows at a this wonderful location to view sunsets.

Great location, the coldest beer around, the best mix of music, friendly people (they make you feel like you are part of the family) and the food is good. This is hard to find anywhere in the world. If you want to meet local people, learn about the area and get recommendations on what to do and where to go, you will get it all here.

We just had Thanksgiving Dinner there; the food and service were great and this was one of the best holidays we have had. Yes: turkey, potatoes, pumpkin pie, etc.; the family characters, fun and interesting conversations and catching up on what is happening elsewhere in the world; the family dogs and of course football on the TV. Yes, this is a beach bar - who would have thought?

By chance, we stopped in for a drink and then came back a few times during our stay at Los Suenos.

Go for the sunset, stay for dinner and enjoy the local flavor. If you are staying at Los Suenos, you can even walk to the restaurant along the beach.

This is not just a bar! Don't be fooled! And all of you over at Los Suenos don't know what you're missing out on! Dennis from New Jersey is an awesome guy! He can tell ya anything you want know about surfing, kayaking, fishing and so much more. I've been to Costa Rica 4 times. My Dad & Uncle live down here. I've eaten a lot of arroz con any meat. But out of all the restaurants I've eaten at... Dennis has the BEST!!! THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!!! If ever in the area stop in order something with your beer. The food is magnificent!!! Thanks Dennis for taking such great care of us. We'll see you next time!!!!

By no means gourmet food, but you can get a great lunch entree for about $7. You will get the local beach flavor here. Good cold beer. They want to please you here. Try it!

Trip Advisor should come take this out of the "restaurant" category. It is a very fun beach bar that happens to serve food. The bathrooms are among the most disgusting we encountered in CR. The owner told us he won't take responsibility for the bathrooms because "people from San Jose come down here and trash the place." The weekend we were there, there were 20 people drinking but we were the only ones who ordered food. The chevice was okay...the meal was alright...the margarita was not very good...the jukebox was very loud...but the beer was cold. IT IS A VERY FUN BEACH BAR !!!!!! The best part was that we were happy to be on vacation in CR, and sunset was great! You will have a great time as long as your expectations don't include the word "restaurant."
