They will do anything to accommodate you and do it with a smile. An eco-friendly resort. I screwed up on the type of room reservation and they fixed it happily and bent over backward to make us happy! Plus you can't beat the views!!! This place so impressed me,I'm doing my first review on trip advisor

Beautiful rooms( we stayed in two different rooms) with great view of the ocean. The private beach was fantastic and the restaurant had great drinks and... More

I really wanted to be writing a wildly positive review but I’m not. To be clear, this is a beautiful location and the beach access (two different beaches) is unique in Manuel Antonio. The rooms are acceptably decorated, but nothing that really blew me away, in fact counter space in the bathroom left a lot to be desired and the... More

This is a perfectly beautiful sanctuary in Costa Rica, on the beach and on 11 pristine acres of garden at the edge of the jungle preserve Manuel Antonio. One of the nicest hotels and prettiest spots we have ever stayed. We enjoyed the quiet, the wonderful service, and the beach was gorgeous. It was fun to see wildlife right at... More

We have just spent 4 perfect days at the Arenas del Mar resort in Costa Rica. It is far more than just a luxury hotel on the beach. It is an Eco Resort set on 11 acres in a rainforest with the most beautiful ocean views. The entire staff, starting with the front desk to the wait staff to the... More

We plan to stay here with family in the near future, so I'll update this review after we go. However, I have to say that the staff at Arenas del Mar have been OUTSTANDING in helping me plan my trip so far (doing the planning in Jan 2015). I'm doing all the planning myself, without a travel agent. Arenas del... More
