Experiencing Costa Rica no longer means roughing it, thanks to the vacation rental villas, homes and condos at Los Suenos Marina and Golf Resort! Situated on Herradura Bay with views to the Pacific Ocean, this beautiful beach resort offers rental houses and condominiums, plus championship golf, and tennis on 1,100 acres, 600 of which are a protected rainforest preserve.
Los Suenos features a Marriott Hotel (from which our villa and condominium rental guests can order room service), La Iguana golf course, a 200-slip international marina, a dozen restaurants that offer fine and casual dining, two spas, many shops, tennis, casino, luxurious rental homes and villas plus condominiums for short-term vacation rental or purchase, many swimming pools, fitness facilities in most communities, a spectacular oceanfront beach club and more.
As the preferred vacation rental agency, Mead Brown's luxurious, professionally managed and staffed Costa Rica vacation rental homes are the perfect base from which to explore the richness of Costa Rica's Central Pacific Coast.
Activities include world-class sport fishing, zipline canopy tours, national parks, birding, surfing, horseback riding, crocodile tours, sea kayaking and river rafting.Our guests enjoy full access to the resort's golf course, restaurants, private oceanfront Beach Club (pictured above), casino, spas, pools, fitness facilities, marina and more.
The Costa Rica vacation rental homes, villas and condominiums of Los Suenos are all built and designed to North American standards and to the expectations of seasoned, discerning travelers. Each community is lushly landscaped and has one or more community swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and most include a fitness facility. Many properties have spectacular views of Herradura Bay, the rainforest, golf course or other appealing feature.
All Mead Brown guests are privileged with complimentary access to the resort's private beach club with its fountains and an extensive free-form pool with swim-up bar plus shower and change facilities. Room service from the Marriott Ocean Resort is available 24/7 to all resort guests, including those staying in condominiums and villas. Mead Brown guests may also access the paid amenities of the hotel, including the hotel's swimming pool, spa, casino, and restaurants.
To be clear, the resort has two beach clubs. The first beach club is the resort's private beach club for homeowners and their guets--this is the beach club to which Mead Brown guests are priviliged with complimentary access. The second beach club is the Marriott Hotel's pool and beach club, which vacation rental guests can access by purchasing a day pass from the hotel.
The Mead Brown collection includes Costa Rica beach villas and vacation rentals in the Los Suenos Resort & Marina condominium communities of Colina, Veranda, Del Mar, Bay Residence, Bella Vista, Terraza de Marbella and Montebello, as well as the villa communities of Vista Tres Bahias and the Eco-Golf Estates. Private homes available for rental include Villa Malibu 8, Casa Mono Loco, Villa Firenze, Pacific House, Casa Pacifica, Los Suenos House, Casa La Campana, and Casa de Suenos, Casa Catalinas, Villa Tranquila, and Casa Cielo Azul.
Getting around the resort is best accomplished by golf cart. A car is required for those staying in the Vista Tres Bahias community due to the road's steep grade. Golf carts are available for rental from Durman within the resort or from Gato Gordo, just outside the resort's entrance.
About the 200-slip international marina, Yachting Magazine said, "The area's calm waters and rich big-game fishing are hard to beat. State-of-the-art sportfishermen, motoryachts and megayachts fill the marina, which opened in 2001.
"The full-service marina includes diesel mechanics, storage for small craft and a complete marine store, and serves as one of the few diesel-fuel stops for recreational boaters, according to Cooper. Many yacht owners have taken a liking to Los Sueños--many have deemed the area a welcome change from Mexico and Venezuela--since Costa Rica presents no compromises in fishing or amenities, and offers a lot less wind. Those who hesitate to reserve may find themselves on an ever-growing waiting list for dockage.
"Some owners send their 50-plus-foot fishing platforms through the Panama Canal or down the Mexican coast on their own bottom. Still others transport their boats, some smaller than 50 feet, from Ft. Lauderdale or Ensenada on a semi-submersible yacht carrier owned by Dockwise Yacht Transport. The boats are offloaded in Golfito, an easy trip to Playa Herradura."
Charter boats can also be found. Costa Rica offers excellent marlin, sailfish, roosterfish, cubera snapper, dorado and yellow fin tuna fishing. Sixty-five world-record fish have been caught in Costa Rica's waters. Mead Brown knows the best boats and best captains and we'd be delighted to hook you up for a full- or half-day of sport fishing.
Two of the year's annual highlights are the Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series presented by Cabo Yachts. The tournaments are sanctioned by the World Billfish Series and the Rolex/IGFA Offshore Championship. Anglers competing in the Los Sueños tournaments are automatically enrolled in the WBS and compete for points in the Pacific Rim Division. The winners from the January and March Los Sueños tournaments are eligible to compete in the Rolex/IGFA Grand Championship. The total cash prize jackpot for the series is expected to exceed $300,000 and the boat with the highest combined score from the first and second tournaments will receive a guaranteed grand prize of US $50,000 from the tournament promoter, Los Sueños Resort & Marina™.
New Viking and Riviera yachts are available for purchase from Costa Rica Yacht Sales, which also offers fractional ownership through its yachtshare program.
