What our customers are saying

We stayed here for one week. There were 6 of us. The reason we went to this area was to attend a wedding close by. We could not have been more pleased. I do not have anything negative to say. We loved it. It has a North American influence to it so we enjoyed feeling right at home here while we toured the beautiful country of Costa Rica. We rented a car to get here, no GPS, (may have been helpful, not sure as this area does not have alot of signage as many streets are unnamed or in Spanish). You can take a shuttle by booking with property management team to bring you here and back to airport, then rent a car just down the street or the property management office will help you take care of that too. Another option is to rent a car through one of the rental car dealers from airport, they bring an extra car and guide you to Los Suenos, so you find your way easily and have your car if you want to do your own tour travelling. This resort is well groomed, is sprayed daily, so no mosquitoes to bug you. We went during rainy season but it only rained everyday at 4pm for about an hour with one exception where it rained from 4 till we went to bed. It was about 26 degrees in day and 22 at night. We so enjoyed sitting on the most beautiful terrace balcony off our living/dining area. We spent alot of time here. Would recommend this place. A paradise in a beautiful country.

Bud (Canada)

We traveled with 4 families to Costa Rica in August to try to get away from it all, and we did. Casa Tropical is in gorgeous Los Suenos and is located so we felt like we were on our on private resort. The guys golfed each day and the women enjoyed spending time at the marina. HRG planned everything perfectly. Thanks so much.

Sandy Billings (North Carolina)

An amazing family vacation! Resort was extremely safe and absolutely beautiful. The discription and photos of resort and condo were very accurate. I would highly recommend this property. All of the activities that we did were great. We zip lined, rented ATV's, went on a crocadile boat and went offshore fishing. All of these activities were an amazing experience. We spent the day at Hermosa Beach and Jaco beach where my kids surfed and bodyboarded. The restaurants in Los Sueños were ver very good. The El Pelicano which is 2 minutes outside Los Suenos was also very good. The high light of our dining experience was Adventure Dining. Words can not explain that evening!!
