6 Reasons to Enjoy a Romantic, Family Vacation at Dreams Las Mareas!!! ❤️️

6 Reasons to Enjoy a Romantic, Family Vacation at Dreams Las Mareas!!! ❤️️

#1 Pools! Everywhere!

Beautiful pristine water all over the resort. There are pools off of the beach, infinity pools, the kid's pool and slide, and adult only pools. No excuses! There's room for everyone to take a dip or lay out in the sun and enjoy the poolside service. The BBQ was awesome! No overcrowding and there were plenty of chairs.

#2: Adult only Activities On Deck!  

Dreams include all of the amenities adults look for in adult- only resorts; top shelf bars, a night club, adult- only dining and scheduled entertainment. We especially enjoyed the spa which was relaxing and secluded. There was also cooking classes, rum tasting, hiking, dance lessons, Spanish lessson and yoga. There's was something for everyone!

#3: Explorers Clubs- No Parents Allowed 

The Explorers kid's club was a big hit for our nine year old. And very familiar, as we enjoyed a vacation at Dreams in Mexico a few years ago. The club is equipped with games, electronics, crafts, toys, and most importantly- certified childcare instructors. The kid's club offers a number of scheduled interactive activities for children that can be found in the daily activity planner. My son enjoyed camping out on the beach, swimming, and the front row seats to the shows and festive celebrations. The staff was extremely attentive and really enjoyed interacting with the kids. My son did not want to leave. Great fun for kids and assuring for parents, when the instructor remembers your child's name.😄

#4: Secluded Spa and Pool

We enjoyed a very quiet and private date at the spa. After receiving a smoothing massage, my husband and I also relaxed in the adult sanctuary. Equipped with a Jacuzzi, showers and relaxing beds, this adult oasis was perfect for a romantic date for us to spend some time alone.

#5: Family Excursions are a plus!

Don't forget to inquire about the extras! Volcanoes, monkeys, sloths, city tours, zip-lining and more! The all- day rain forest excursion was very informative. I was especially excited to learn more about the history of Costa Rica and the culture. I always include an opportunity to learn more; even on vacation! The resort offers several options and transportation. Booking is available before and during your stay.

#6: Romantic Turn- down Service

Dreams Las Mareas is the perfect place to celebrate love! So we did! Dreams made our 10th Anniversary one to remember. The champagne and complimentary vow renewal service was amazing, but we were surprised to see the special turn- down service that included wine, fresh fruit and rose pedals on the bed. The next morning, we were greeted with a romantic breakfast for two! Definitely a lovely treat!
