Definitely, Arenas del Mar and get a suite on an uppermost floor with a Jacuzzi on the balcony. Very private, very romantic.

Love Arenas del Mar - awesome location, right on the beach with a rainforest backdrop. Get an ocean view suite for sure. It's worth the money - the service there is amazing and the suites and views are just beautiful. So romantic and luxurious!

Definitely Arenas Del Mar. It is so romantic. It's on the beach so you don't have to worry about transportation. Get one of the ocean view suites. The views are incredible. Have fun!

Way out of my price range, but in a perfect world Arenas del Mar would also get my vote.

100% Arenas del Mar. The environment is relaxing and romantic, right on Espadilla and Playitas Beaches and walking distance from Manuel Antonio National Park. There are plenty of adventures you can have with your loved one during your honeymoon! Everyone in the staff is wonderful, and they all remembered my name and helped me plan my days during my time there.

I will be the opposite here. Having stayed at Arenas del Mar based on all the glowing reviews here, we were pretty disappointed in this hotel. Is it bad, No. Is it as nice as all the glowing reviews, No. It is a pretty good place that has a split personality. They try to be both an upscale hotel and a green hotel at the same time, and fail at both. They need to decide which they want to be, and go that direction. As it is, we will not be looking to stay here on our next trip down.
