We just adored our stay for five weeks this past February & March. The owners have created a welcoming oasis of vibrant architecture combined with low-key hospitality. It is a perfect match! When we asked for anything (and we had lots of asks) the answer was always yes and delivered with a smile. Our room was quiet, spacious, both screened... More

We were greeted by Mauricio and Camila who manage the hotel and immediately fell in love with it. Every little detail has been done with impeccable taste. The hotel was by Fernando the owner who we met along with his wife Esther. They are lovely people and were happy to spend their time giving us tips on our further travels.... More

The hotel is really nice and quiet. The owner and staff are very welcoming and take such a good care of their guests. The location is perfect, a little outside the village but still close (you can borrow bike to go the the center). The beautifull beach is just acroos the road. It is a very peaceful place to take...

We stayed at the Posada Arenas for five nights in the second half of February and could not have been happier with our choice. We highly recommend Jose Ignacio for the beaches, restaurants, and laid back atmosphere and Posada Arenas is a great place to stay. The small hotel (with about 12 rooms) is located just 2 kms from the... More

Just spent two nights at the property. We were in room 9 in the 2nd building on the 2nd floor. Great, quiet location. Nice staff, Nice breakfast. Best to have a car to drive into town as needed. We did enjoy a nice lunch at the posada. Nice common areas to lounge and enjoy some drinks. Would recommend the property!

The posada is located steps alway from two of the top restaurants in Jose Ignacio thus there is no need for cabs. The beach is only five minutes away (walking) and it is lovely. The swimming pool...

Spent two evenings at this posada, or inn, which is located in Jose Ignacio. It's just a short distance from the downtown part of Jose Ignacio, easily accessible by car or bike. You can even walk straight down the street from the posada and hit the beach in a short amount of time. We had rented a car for our... More
