One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The views are spectacular. You don't get to see this kind of natural beauty very often. The villas are beautiful, right down the fine luxury linens. Everywhere you look is breathtaking. I have traveled all over the world and this was one of my most favorite vacations. I love the...

Pictures and words cannot do Mareas Justice... staying here was like living in someones dream they imagined was paradise. The beautiful oceanic views, lively jungle, pristine waterfalls, abundant wildlife I had grown accustom to on this trip made for one of the tough goodbyes to memory. On top of that the host Tim and Pilar were even more difficult to...

My first time to Costa Rica was exceptional not only because I was vacationing with great company but also because I had the privilege staying at this flawless resort. I vacation frequently and I will say that this is one of the most tropical and luxurious resorts I’ve stayed at. I live in San Francisco and in a neighborhood with...

I spent a whole week here on a yoga retreat and could not imagine a more dream-like escape. First of all, the place is stunning. As you walk in to Mareas, you are witness to a panoramically-perfect view of the expansive sky, warm ocean, and sparkling, infinity pool in a cradle of green jungle. The property is fantastic as the...

I've spent a few night's here and I love it. Absolute heaven on Earth! As you walk through the front doors of this beautiful property you're treated to breath-taking views across the infinity poole, over the jungle and out onto the ocean. It has a spacious, luxurious, clean, classy feel with plenty of comfy lounge chairs to chill out, relax...
