Los Sueños Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort
Golfers, sportfishers, and families looking for American-style services favor this sprawling, Spanish colonial–style resort perched midway between the ocean and the rainforest. Los Sueños Marriott has created a fantasy pool system of canals, bridges, islands, and swim-up bars, surrounded by gardens, plentiful chaises, and attentive waiter service. Besides the 201 large guest rooms and suites, and widely varied activities and amenities, the resort is located next to a full-service marina and its Ted Robinson–designed, championship golf course. The hotel can arrange canopy tours and nature walks in nearby national parks.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
