From the moment you arrive at this gorgeous hotel it feels special - on the golf cart drive from the welcome area to reception, we saw 2 sloths, a troop of squirrel monkeys and a host of halloween crabs - and we weren't even trying! The staff all remember your names, are polite, happy and genuinely enthusiastic about this gorgeous... More

Stayed here for a week in late June/early July. The location is stunning overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with balconies looking out over the ocean. We saw lots of wildlife on the grounds including sloths, agoutis, 3 species of monkey, iguanas and several species of birds. The large beach was definitely the place to walk... More

Great resort, fantastic staff. My only recommendation is that you check trip advisor for tours. We were book thru hotel on 2 sub par tours. If we'd checked trip advisor first we'd have been better off. Food is good. They provide a van to local destinations.

Second stay at ADM - We had a wonderful time at ADM. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained, and our room had an amazing view. We also enjoyed the food and beverage services, and we noted a major increase in quality here - truly excellent food! Since our last stay, a few years back, we are impressed. Finally, as for...

The property is beautiful and probably the only hotel in the area with beach access. The service is impeccable. The staff all remembered our names and our daily activities. The on-site restaurant is good too...probably better than most other food options in town. Shout out to Chucha [Angel], Allan, Carlo and Christian! You guys were the best!

Arenas Del Mar is the most magnificent hotel!!! The staff was amazing and so welcoming from the moment we arrived. It truly felt like a family! The staff knew our names and anticipated our every need. Everyone was extremely accommodating and so friendly. Not to mention, the grounds of the hotel are amazing and beautiful. Just walking to your room... More

This was just breathtaking!! Although a distance from the airport (2-3 hours by car :0/)---I totally recommend the additional short flight (30 min.) via Nature Air to Quepos (I wish someone would of told me!)---there's even a packet that you can purchase for $350 that gives you unlimited flights for the week (if you plan to go to other areas...

This was our second time at Arenas del Mar. Two teenagers (16 and 19) with their parents. It was again an opportunity for us to catch up as our son lives there. Our budget this time around was tighter as we rented 2 rooms. One garden view, very nice and basic for the kids, mind you, they has a jacuzzi... More

You will not be disappointed. The hotel, the restaurant, the property- all were first class. My kids loved the wildlife, and the staff was always ready to point something new out. Though this was a family trip for us, it would have made a perfect place for a honeymoon or even a personal retreat. You can relax and read a... More
