We stayed for 9 days at Los Suenos Marriott and had a very good time. This an upscale property with really good service. Yet there a few things missing with this hotel.
first, the positives:
Absolutely beautiful grounds and excellent pool area. There is a small swim bar, good convenient restaurant and friendly waiters to take your drink orders by the pool.
The entire 1,100 acre property is attractively maintained and very lush.
Every staff member was courteous, helpful and provided good advice.
The room with the balcony had a partial ocean view. I would recommend getting a room with a balcony to be able to sit and enjoy the sun setting on Herradura Bay.
The room is big, comfortable with a good shower and tub.
What we found missing from this resort,
There is no
Marriott concierge at this luxury resort. Every guest service is contracted out to an site travel and tour agency.
We could not find a directory or map of the property. There are four restaurants but we only found three of them. We had a hard time finding the casino which is not connected to the hotel.
Travel to a close by marina with nice restaurants involves a long walk in the dark. The hotel doesn't provide a shuttle service.
You cannot get a cup of coffee after 8 pm because the coffee cafe closes at that time.
There are wild iguana all over the property, especially by the pool area.
Finally, where's the beach? The mud and dirt that exists on he beach area just beyond the hotel property is not what you'd expect at a luxury resort.
Costa Rica is a very beautiful country and offers gorgeous sights and ran forests, The Marriott Los Suenos could use some improvements.
