The Valley of Dreams Eco Lodge is by far the best place I've stayed in out of all my vacations. The hosts, Matt and Annie, are incredibly accommodating and informative, and supplied me with a list of excursions near by that we could do. I recommend this place to anyone vacationing in Costa Rica. Whether you are going for the views, the culture, to get away, or for shopping, the Valley of Dreams has you covered. There is lots to do in and around Dominical including, but not limited to; zip lining, whale watching, beaches, repelling, horse back riding, waterfalls, and more! Thanks again, Matt and Annie, for the vacation of a life time.

It was not easy to find a property that could accommodate our large group, but the Valley of Dreams easily accommodated all 16. The property was even more beautiful than the pictures, with a nature hike, fruit trees, monkeys, toucans and parrots. Nearby were beautiful waterfalls, swimming holes and beaches. Matt and Annie were wonderful hosts with expert advice on area attractions and tours. They even helped us arrange a safe, affordable shuttle back to the airport for one person in our group that had to leave early. The property is wonderful, the location is not "touristy", and the hosts are Awesome.

Nestled in the lush Jungle Annie and Matt have created a true paradise. From the moment you arrive the Valley of Dreams feels like coming home. Their hospitality has a uniquely gentle touch that puts the most guarded traveler at ease. The modern, immaculate Cabinas are raised far enough above the ground that it feels like you’re floating in the clouds. Valley of Dreams is a fitting title because, like a good dream you’ll want to pinch yourself to make sure it’s real. It is. Thank you to an incredible couple for giving us this exceptional gift. All of your hard work and love truly paid off. To other travelers in the area, book asap because you’re going to love it. Pura Vida!

Off the beaten tourist path but still close enough to the beach to go everyday. Nestled in the hills with great views and beautiful sunsets. Relax in the calm comfort of your own mini-resort after a busy day exploring. Rivers and waterfalls to explore and fresh water swimming holes down the road. Grocery store in town nearby. The best part are the welcoming hosts who treat you as family. Can’t recommend highly enough. Consider the inland highway for at least one of the drives to or from the airport.

Fantastic place!!! Beautifully set-up in serene environment. Location is ideal to explore surrounding waterfalls, beaches and communities. Just far enough into the mountain from the coast (15 min drive) so that weather is not as humid and hot. You can either enjoy the place by yourself relaxing in your very comfortable bungalow or you can exchange with other guests in the shared area. Kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. Matt and Annie makes you feel at home and provide great tips for activities. We felt welcome as friends...not customer. The best accommodation we've experienced in central-America by far!

Hosts went out of their way to make our stay super enjoyable, giving great recommendations and being super friendly. The place is extremely nice and recently renovated, and located in the middle of a beautiful forest, making it a great getaway spot. Curtains in the bedroom are not very heavy, which made sleeping after the super early (~5:30am) Costa Rican sunrise a bit hard.

Me and my wife stayed at Valley de Suenos for two weeks. We stayed in a private two bedroom guest house. Clean, well decorated and hot shower! A perfect getaway to relax in a cozy quiet mountain scenery. Location is a close drive to beautiful waterfalls and beaches! I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to experience Costa Rica vibes. Matt and Annie made us feel right at home.
