Reviews for Los Suenos Resort and Marina
stunning bad attitude, 2016-08-27
Captain: , cave creek az (60)

These folks do not like crusiers. $5.00 per ft per night dockage,$100 per day for dingy access. Very rude behavior from staff. Managment informed us that the owner does not want sailboat business.



They need to get their nose's out of their..., 2014-03-07
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

If you're anchored out, you will not be allowed to enter the marina to go to their chandlrey or restaurants without paying a $40 fee. Really...I just want to spend some money at your store.

All traffic in/out of the marina is required to check in with security to let them know how many people are on board and when they're expected back. Why they conduct this business on VHF 16 is beyond me as it makes the channel useless.



Very Nice Marina, 2013-10-25
Captain: , Swansboro (664)

Very nice (but a little expensive) marina. Very nice (but pricey) restaurant(s) and shopping onsite.

Los Suenos is NICE....but not the "real" Costa Rica in my opinion. Is basically a large gated community.....Might as well be in Florida.





Great facility if you need to stop, 2013-06-08
Captain: , Juneau, AK (288)

Great marina with top notch staff who are very accommodating. The marine supply on site is the best we found in all of CR. Yes, it is expensive, just pretend you are in Florida, because that is what you will think of when you arrive, since it is a major sport fishing port.
In spite of being deep in the harbor, there is significant tidal swell in the marina. Your boat will be in constant motion. Extra lines and bumpers advised.
The entrance to the marina is on the south side of the large breakwater, not readily apparent upon approach, head in due east just to the north of the shallow shelf in he center of the harbor and you will easily turn 90 degrees north into the marina.
If you need Internet, inquire at the office and they will lend you a wifi stick for a deposit. The marina doesn't have it's own wifi, but we found a couple of open networks in the area.



Good for services, 2012-09-27
Captain: , Long Beach (973)

Great place if you are looking to get things fixed.
Very poor marina for the average cruiser. Expensive, market is very large sportfishers and their charters.
Docks are crowded with fishing gear at all times, in poor condition. Shore side facilities and services are first rate.

Captain: , Austin Texas (120)

This is mostly a fishing marina with few cruisers. The restaurants are really good. Transportation is good. Great golf course. No good local anchorages. You pay for all services like internet, gym, pool, etc. Pump out is at the fuel dock and not the docks.
