Los Sueños Marriott Ocean and Golf Resort

1 km (½ mile) west of road to Jacó from San José, follow signs at entrance of road to Playa Herradura, Herradura, Puntarenas, 61101, Costa Rica

This mammoth multimillion-dollar resort in a palatial colonial-style building has a gorgeous view of Herradura Bay and combines modern amenities with traditional Central American decorative motifs, such as barrel-tile roofing and hand-painted tiles. Rooms here, though attractive and some of the country's most expensive, are nothing special compared with those at smaller hotels in the same price range. They have marble baths, wooden furniture, and tiny balconies. Be sure to get one with an ocean view, or you'll be contemplating condos. An enormous pool with islands and swim-up bars, a Ted Robinson golf course, a modern marina, and various diversions are designed to keep you on-site and entertained. The spa is one of the best in Central America.
