The hotel benefits from a great location with its own private beach and just a short walk from the much larger, beautiful and not particularly crowded public beach. When I say walk, you do not actually need to walk - a golf buggy will take you everywhere on the grounds of the hotel. The buildings do not look like much...

The staff at this resort goes beyond to make you feel special. The views from our room were spectacular. Sitting on our balcony watching monkeys and sloths really added to the experience. Ate all of our meals at the resort. The meals were always delicious. We had a hard time leaving this paradise. Counting the days until we can return.

This is our third trip to this resort. The staff and service continue to impress us. The accommodations are excellent, with a semi private beach, two restaurants, two pools, beautiful views of both the Pacific Ocean and the adjoining rain forest. The food has been excellent plus the resort will arrange reservations and transportation to many of the local restaurants....

This 36 room resort is just about perfect. The simple welcome area is not impressive, but the best is yet to come. At the registration area, one of the managers, Ariel, assured us that he would personally take care of our every concern. And he did, including reservations on and off the property. This resort is adjacent to Manuel Antonio...

Stayed at Arenas Del Mar in mid-December for 4 nights, and this is one fine hotel. We splurged and stayed in an ocean front suite, 3rd floor, building 7 next to the upper pool. While some folks may want to be a little further way from the main building and pool, we found it extremely convenient and quiet enough for...

Dear ValueFinder29455, greetings from sunny Manuel Antonio. What a coincidence that you were with our guide Valerie at two different Cayuga Collection Hotels & Lodges over the last two years. Yes, she is a great guide and can really interpret the wildlife at the hotel well for our guests. Thanks for the praise for our housekeeping department. This often gets...

I stayed here in the shoulder season and was able to book for the only night we stayed in Manuel Antonio. Typically there is a minimum stay requirement, but they worked with me because the hotel was not fully booked. The suite was awesome, but the highlight was the hot tub overlooking the pacific. The beach area was also very...

Our group of two families (2 13 yo boys and 2 11 yo girls), just got back from Arenas del Mar. We all had an incredible time. Staff was friendly, and super accommodating, going out of their way to fulfill all our wishes. The property is extremely clean, with breathtaking views of Manuel Antonio park and the ocean.

We have not stayed at Arenas del Mar, but have visited several times in the past. We were looking for a place for a late breakfast when someone suggested Arenas del Mar. We just missed breakfast, but hung out near the beach until they opened for lunch. What an idyllic location under the trees with the waves breaking several yards...

My husband and I spent the week after Thanksgiving at beautiful Arenas Del Mar. Although a hurricane came through the week before our visit which disrupted our weather (mostly gray and some rain), it didn't hold us back from trekking the rainforest and enjoying the gorgeous beaches, and we did manage to get some sunny parts during the week!

It was a great hotel. They have a very good staff who are always trying. While delivery, is not always to top of world standards it is really high, especially given the location. Food was good.
