My wife and I stayed for three nights in late November during our first visit to Jose Ignacio. Upon walking into the hotel Mauricio and Camila ensured our time at Posada Arenas was excellent and first rate. Since we were in town shortly before the high season, Mauricio explained which shops and restaurants were open and marked them clearly on... More

I stayed two nights at the hotel during the beginning of November. The hotel is beautifully situated about 2k from the town itself. It's a short walk to the beach, and we walked the beach into town each evening for dinner (La Huella). The design of the hotel is modern and interesting, and the pool is a delight. The bathroom's...

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!

We enjoyed two beautiful nights at this lovely place. We felt very welcomed by the staff and they were always of great help. 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...
