I could not think of a better place to spend my honeymoon! We went during June (the green season) but the occasional showers did not hold us back at all from doing anything we wanted to do. In fact, the highlight of our trip was included in our "green season honeymoon" package: the private dinner on the private beach! As... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and were AMAZED by the impeccable customer service and peaceful facilities. The hotel room was way bigger and nicer than we expected, and we were treated like royalty the entire time. There wasn't a single bad item on the menu, and we had something new everyday! Thank you Arenas Del Mar... More

We loved our stay at this resort, the food was amazing, we had a great meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We stayed in building 2 which overlooks the pool, it was very clean, and the bed was super comfy. The balcony was nice, and had a great day bed, in which i found myself taking plenty of afternoon siestas.... More

We just got back from Arenas del Mar. The location of this resort is perfect. It is on the edge of the rain forest bordering on a long, beautiful beach. We stayed in building 4, which I like very much because you are high in the rain forest and very close to the restaurant. Buildings 4-7 are high up on... More

Arenas del Mar was all that we hoped for - a quiet, secluded paradise right on the Pacific. The hotel has its own private beach, along with access to the larger public beach. We had planned to do lots of excursions in Manuel Antonio, but once we arrived at this oasis, we were not eager to leave. The rooms are... More

This is a small hotel in the Manuel Antonio area. It consists of seven buildings, each three stories, with two units per story. On each floor there is a large suite type room with a small outside tub and an expansive outdoor terrace and the other room is a large room with a huge bathroom and also an extensive terrace....

A fantastic vacation with our family. The place is beautiful, clean, with a good location and amazing views. The staff was friendly and always in a good attitude to help and provide information. We had the monkeys coming over every day for breakfast!

I was scared to go anywhere that lacked the word "four seasons" in it, let alone in a developing country on an adventure that was planned by someone that I hold dear but has exhibited the decision making skills of 1990s Robert Downey jr. or Scott Weiland. In the nights leading up to the trip, I fantasized that a bankruptcy,... More

We travelled with 2 of our kids aged 22 and 26. Had 2 rooms right next to the office. One was a suite with a jacuzzi and the other without. Perfect location and perfect for convenience. The staff is amazing and is available 24 hours a day for questions. We arranged prior to the trip our adventures for the nature... More
