Stayed at Arenas del Mar and loved it. Our room overlooked the ocean and it was huge! Loved the jacuzzi in the balcony and relaxing on the lounge chairs listening to the sound of the waves.
The Tico Bar (free minibar filled with Costa Rican specialties) was a really cool touch.
Had lunch on the private beach and it was great. Of course, had the ceviche.
Did the sustainability tour at the hotel (free) and it was really interesting to see all the things the hotel does to be green. It was fun to get a behind-the-scenes view.
The hotel is quite removed from the main road so you'll have to take a taxi if you want to go into town but that also adds to the experience!
Saw monkeys on the trees bythe pool: cappuchin and ti-ti plus lots of iguanas.
Overall a great place to stay!
