The beach rainforest location and setting of this resort is gorgeous. Add on top of that the most friendly & professional staff I have ever encountered. Plus, the most heavenly bed. Then, on top of that, the animals that you see passing such as sloth, monkeys, birds & lizards make this a most unique & memorable resort to spend time... More

We really liked our stay here last week (Easter week), but found that the service was very inconsistent....two standouts for great service were Juan Diego (bartender/waiter) and Sergio. The grounds are gorgeous...nice amenities. Beach has rough water, so you have to watch small children very carefully. There was lots of lush wildlife everywhere. My kids really enjoyed the expansive deck... More

How to begin... We did not stay at the hotel but our concierge booked a private (intimate) dinner for me to surprise my wife on our 20th wedding anniversary. Ricardo was our waiter for a incredible experience at Arenas del Mar. Upon arrival he actually had 2 beautifully set dinner tables for us. One under the cover of the bar... More

This hotel is nestled in the middle of nature while respecting its' integrity. It is such a beautiful place full of animals such as sloths, iguanas, monkeys and even bats. All the people working here are wonderful and live by the phrase "Pura Vida" which they say when they great you.

Great location, tucked on the side of a cliff running down to the beach. Breakfast each morning was wonderful, including the fresh juices. Rooms were a bit on the smaller side and slightly dated, but otherwise excellent.

This is a wonderful place - the rooms are great (we had a suite but all the rooms are good), the surroundings are beautiful, the beach is stunning and the people who work there are second to none. There is a special ambience at Arenas Del Mar, not sure if its how much they care for their beautiful evironment or... More

I stayed at Arenas del Mar in May 2012 and again this past April and I cannot describe enough how much I love this hotel! It's something you really need to see for yourself! It is beautiful and there is so much wildlife to see. There is a baby sloth outside the main lobby which I had to visit every... More

I really can't imagine staying anyplace else in Manuel Antonio. We had booked an Ocean View Superior Room and were upgraded to a suite upon arrival. Even without the upgrade, I'd still give Arenas del Mar a rave review. The property is truly magnificent and guest rooms were extremely comfortable and immaculate. The staff were consistently friendly, competent, and always... More

Would definitely return here. There is no other property like this in the area. Our room was stunning (building 2) staff was incredible. So willing to help us spot sloths monkeys etc. I got some incredible photos. Not 5 stars because the moved my friends family away from us without asking. They thought they were doing him a favor but... More

We were lucky enough to be given a fantastic room with amazing views over the beach and sea. The bathroom was huge as was the balcony with a hot tub. Wildlife including sloths and monkeys on your door step. Beaches close by and not really that far to walk. The accommodation at the far end by the smaller beach would... More
