The staff and service was fantastic in navigating me and my family through the hotels unique landscape. Set in between the rain forest and white sand beaches, Arenas' location is one you could find no other place and truly breathtaking at sight. Beyond terrific food and amazing park services/tours are available to explore Costa Rica.

This is a spacious yet intimate experience. We got to know the staff and they got to know us. They are cheerful always and very kind and attentive. The view was spectacular from the room and the restaurant. Plus delightful meals on the palm shaded beach. I recommend the Playitas lemonade and the mixed fruit juice at breakfast. I hate...

We played board games on the Patio, swam in the pool enjoyed the in room treats. Volley ball and swimming on the beach. The kids learned how to surf a bit with Alex on the big beach. We...

I spent several days at Arenas del Mar in late September in 2016. This was a low season for the hotel. There seemed to be very few guests. It was almost like we owned the place! We enjoyed a magnificent week highlighted by outstanding resort staff and cuisine. The pools were refreshing and the ocean waves at high tide were...

Although a fantastic location, great beaches for the kids (with the waves), the food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all poor at best. We are here with three rooms/six people. It's an eco property with very simple decor. Heavy wooden furniture, tiled floors, simple/single glass.....and this is where the problem starts. Every move in the other rooms (above and...

Fantastic boutique hotel, delightful staff, spacious rooms, great food, more wildlife than in the park Manuel Antonio , monkeys, iguanas, birds, etc. and less crowded. Expensive but Costa Rica is expensive and at least in this place you know what you pay for. Better facilities at the public beach (which is safer for kids) and a better wine selection would...

Arenas Del Mar is a little gem a little out of the way. Beautiful rooms with a balcony with a view on the sea. Our room was 602B. We saw a sloth right on the property as well as white faced monkeys. And for those Europeans who like raccoons one came right on the table to finish licking of our...

We recently stayed at the hotel for 5 days and had a wonderful time! It is nestled along the side of the mountain and includes its own private beach. Due to its limited number rooms, it's gives guests the opportunity to really interact and get to know the staff. We loved our servers and the front desk staff who were...

I cannot begin to say enough great things about this resort. The location and views are amazing from all areas. The wildlife was a definite perk; I loved watching the monkeys jump around the trees and even caught views of the sloths in the trees. The Staff is exceptional and extremely helpful and friendly in making sure your stay is...
