Amazing staff, service, and view! Everything about our stay was perfect! From the transfer from the airport provided by the resort to the transfer back to the airport was an amazing experience! The drivers were amazingly friendly, caring, and patient! I was truly sad to leave this place and cannot wait to return !

This was my husband and my first trip to Costa Rica and it was unbelievable! My husband's family had been to Costa Rica before and stayed at Arenas del Mar and have talked about it for years! After spending 8 days there, I can definitely see why they still rave about it! The property, staff, rooms, and cuisine are outstanding!... More

In addition to great food and lodging the service is perfect. The staff is helpful, knowledgable, and very friendly and patient making the whole experience most pleasant. Our family was made welcome and comfortable. I would have moved in had that been possible.
