The hotel of Arenas Del Mar has what looks to be a totally private beach that is served by Playitas Restaurant. Burgers are great, drinks served with a smile, and all on a surreal private beach setting. Pura Vida!

Have lunch on a beautiful, secluded beach with your toes in the sand and exceptional service. Homemade tortilla and plantain chips with guac and the "back to life ceviche" were among our favorites. The red sangria and mojitos are delightful.

All the food is prepared fresh, grown locally and organically, and/or caught fresh. Everything I had the week I was there was better than anything I've ever had in the States.

We ate here several times while staying at Arenas del Mar and enjoying the nearby beach. A very nice mix of food (ceviche, burgers, etc) and cold drinks.

A wonderful place to have lunch. The quesadilla is great. Dinner is offered here for special nights like Costa Rican food, or Street Food Festival, but it is one price ($45) per person not including drinks.

We had lunch here nearly every day of our stay at Arenas Del Mar. The food is superb--my children ate from the kids' menu, but the quality of those dishes were excellent. My husband is gluten-and -dairy free, and he had absolutely no problem finding...More
