 New Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica

By: Tom Brussow

Owner, Sunsational Beach Vacations

When we ask our clients to name a place that they have never been, but would definitely like to go, they very often mention Costa Rica. It just seems to be one of those ‘bucket list’ kind of places.

During my last visit there, we flew into San Jose and then worked our way down to Guanacaste which is where you’ll find the best beach resorts. Along the way, we took in many of the amazing natural wonders (which I will touch on later), the beautiful landscape and the Café Britt coffee plantation. The friendly people here produce coffee against which all other coffee should be judged. (I have been ordering this online ever since!)

I am very much looking forward to my next trip which may be as soon as January 2015.

One of the main reasons for the trip is to experience the new, all-inclusive Dreams Las Mareas Resort which is opening November 1st. We have a large destination wedding group booked here in April and we, of course, need to check it out. That is part of our job after all!

We are big fans of the Dreams Resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. Over the years, we have sent many families here, as well as, more than a few Destination Weddings. We have found the accommodations to be excellent and the prices very reasonable.

I personally like the restaurant choices, food quality, the fact that no reservations and NO WRISTBANDS are required! I also like the consistency of knowing that each Dreams Resort has the same restaurant offerings with Seafood, Italian, Asian, etc.

We also always recommend that our clients consider the Preferred Club room categories. For a relatively small upcharge, Preferred Club guests get access to better room locations, exclusive access to certain restaurants, and many other VIP services and amenities.

Located on the beautiful El Jobo Beach on the northern coast of Guanacaste, the new Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica is about 45 miles from the Liberia Airport. We book this resort with Apple Vacations and we always include a non-stop transfer in the package price.

Dreams Las Mareas will offer a contemporary design with what they refer to as the Unlimited-Luxury® experience. With this, everything is included…gourmet dining options, top-shelf spirits, 24-hour room and concierge services.

Dreams Las Mareas will have 447 guest suites (including the only Swim-out style rooms in the area) with views of the beautiful ocean, jungle or mountains. During the day, you can enjoy the pools which are very large at over 44,000 square feet. Guests can also snorkel, play volleyball of the beach, or just chill out on the white sand beach.

Another very important feature we love about Dreams is the The Explorer’s Club for kids and Core Zone Teen’s Club. Here the kids have a place to go to do the things they like and stay entertained. This means happy kids and quality alone time for the adults.

One other very important feature that you need to be aware at Dreams is called Unlimited Connectivity. This is a complimentary mobile app that allows guests to stay connected to the people they are with on the trip, as well as with friends and family back home. Utilizing the app-to-app call feature, guests can also make local and international calls using the resort’s Wi-Fi connection without incurring any cell phone roaming charges. Be sure to download this app before you go as this is very convenient and will save you money on phone and data charges!

Earlier, I mentioned the amazing excursions you will find in Costa Rica. I have been to many destinations over the years and can truly say the experiences you will have in Costa Rica are unbelievable. This is where the Canopy Tour (a.k.a zipline) was invented…you HAVE to do this! It is an exhilarating experience you will never forget!

Here are a few more must dos:

  • Sky Tours Arenal Volcano & Hot Springs Tour

You’ll get to visit the observation deck at the highest point of the Arenal Reserve, giving you beautiful views of the rainforest, volcano and lake on this full-day tour. You can also enjoy a sky tram ride in a gondola, jungle zip-lining activities, a boat ride and a visit to the hot springs.

  • Treasures of Monteverde Tour

Discover the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve with over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds and 2,500 species of plants on this full-day tour. You’ll get to go on a sky tram through the forest, a hiking tour with suspension bridges, a coffee plantation and chocolate tour.

What Do Our Clients Have to Say? Here's Some Feedback We Recently Received:

Destination: Punta Cana
Resort: Now Larimar

Freddie Macalus, our travel agent was amazing! He did a wonderful job helping us not only determine the best location for our destination wedding, but he also helped work with us hand in hand with the wedding planner at the resort to ensure our day went off without a hitch. Most people say that something will go wrong the day of your wedding, but we can say that was truly not the case. Freddie also did an awesome job working with all 40 of our traveling guests in booking their trips, which was no easy task. We had a lot of people traveling from different states and for different durations and the feedback we got from everyone was that Freddie was great in providing them with options and helping them through all their bookings.

Can't say enough great things about Freddie Macalus and Sunsational Beach Vacations!!!! Highly recommend this company and this travel agent to anyone looking to book a trip or a destination wedding!

Destination: Riviera Maya, MX
Resort: Secrets Silversands

We had such a great time at the Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun. I also was very happy that I got to work with you to coordinate the group travel event for us and all of our guests. You were super nice, always helpful, and willing to listen to all of my questions! I always felt like you were available to talk and discuss things and followed up with responses to my questions very rapidly. I had positive feedback from my guests that you were very nice and easy to work with. I would certainly work with you again on travel arrangements!

Destination: Punta Cana
Resort: Breathless

We all had an AMAZING time at Breathless! The hotel was great, food was actually a lot better than I expected, drinks and staff were awesome as well. I think how lively the resort was worked out perfect for all ten of us who wanted to party and celebrate the boys’ 30th birthday. We were very satisfied with your recommendation and will certainly be using you in the future for our next vacation.

Thanks again for all of your help!—I wish we were still on the beach!

Destination: Riviera Maya, MX
Resort: El Dorado Casitas Royale, By Karisma

What an amazing trip you planned for us. It was everything we wanted and more!!! The hotel was amazing, the food was spectacular, and the service was impeccable. We truly lived like royalty. Makes coming back to the real world quite a bummer. We've already begun telling people about the property and referring them to contact you.
We would love to look into a trip around the same time next year.
Again, thank you for making this trip so fantastic and easy to put together.

Nothing but smiles here and we are 1000% (that's not a typo ) satisfied with you and everything involved with the trip.

Thanks again!!

"My husband and I decided to get married in Mexico at Iberostar Grand over Labor Day weekend. It was a large destination wedding as we had 130 guests traveling. Tom and his group did a phenomenal job of coordinating everyone's accommodations, travel plans and transportation. As far as I know, there was not one guest that had any difficulty with their trip. Everyone arrived safely and on time! Tom made himself available for discussion at all hours throughout the planning process and was never difficult to reach. He was extremely knowledgable about the area we were traveling to and worked with the people at Iberostar to provide all of our guests with the getaway they deserved. We will use Tom over and over again for our future group travels and recommend him to anyone getting married :)"

"Tom helped us book our engagement trip. We then needed to discuss wedding stuff. After much debate and family discussions, Deanna and I decided to do a destination wedding in Mexico, and decided that we had such success with Tom helping just us two, that we would love to use him again. He was extremely helpful in getting everything organized for us. From helping friends and relatives book flights, nights stays, discount programs, transfers to and from the airport and working in close connection with Apple to make sure everybody arrived safe and sound. To say that we were beyond happy and pleased would be an understatement. EVERYTHING was perfect, flawless and extremely stress free. Deanna and I want to thank Tom for everything to make our trips so wonderful!!! He has been a part of our engagement, wedding/honeymoon and hopefully trips here in the near future. I highly recommend using his services."
