Not sure if I can add anything the other reviews didn't already cover. So many on the staff should be recognized! From the bottom to the top, they are amazing; friendly, kind with great attitudes! An extra shout out to Ariel, for all he did, but not minimizing the efforts of everyone else!! We stayed in bldg 3 at the... More

Arenas Del Mar is the BEST place to stay while visiting Manual Antonio! This hotel is the only beach front hotel in Manual Antonio (at least I believe). The beach is BEAUTIFUL and very swimmable. It is a little rocky, but nothing I'm not used to. The Hotel itself is set upon a hillside with walking trails and TONS of... More

Firstly so sorry it's taken us a while to review but it's still very much clear in out mind how amazing this place is. After a crazy three days in new York we came here for 7 nights and from the immediately warm welcome we had we knew this place was heaven on earth. It's a short buggy ride from... More

The staff could not have been more helpful. They even checked us in to our flight for the homeward journey. They have 2 restaurants. The restaurant by the main reception serves spectacular food. Top class in a cliff top location. The other restaurant is on the beach, with the sand between your toes. This is more relaxed and serves fish,... More

Arenas Del Mar is a sanctuary in the middle of nowhere. It is a peaceful, heaven sent setting that rejuvenates the soul. Along with the beautiful sights and sounds of nature, there are the people who make it all happen with grace, Robin, Luis, Carlos, Anderson, the list goes on and on. My Husband and I not only had a... More

We can't say enough about this spot. Great customer service obviously under good management, great food, truly a 5 star operation with a location that cannot be beat. The only suggestion I could possibly think of would be to have the wifi signal stronger on the balcony of your room. That is if you insist on being connected 100%. Signal... More

We visited this restaurant for a birthday lunch, impressed by the online menu showing several interesting vegetarian options. We were driven by golf cart from reception through the beautiful gardens to the restaurant. Our expectations were surpassed; the food was delicious (the tamarind cheesecake was divine!) and the drinks were creative and served with bamboo straws - fantastic that they... More

The hotel is perched on a cliff with very steep roads which are traversed with golf carts. These were always punctual and frequently available. Our room was close to the beach an pool which was very convenient. The accommodation is outstanding, the grounds, gardens and pools are beautiful. The private beach is very quiet with comfortable loungers and good service.... More
