We stayed for eight days at the beginning of December. It is hard to add to what has already been said by others. The resort has a wonderful location and the staff is incredibly friendly and constantly goes out of their way to assist in any way possible. We had an Ocean View Premium Suite (room 603A), which had a large veranda and an excellent view of the ocean. Even with the bedroom door to the deck closed at night, you could still hear the ocean. We were visited one morning by white faced capuchins at breakfast and another morning we were awakened by the howler monkeys. We did a number of activities, all arranged through the hotel. We particularly enjoyed the hanging bridges tour and the visit to the Villa Vanilla farm. The highlight was a dinner on the beach, which we received as part of the romance package. The beach restaurant closes at 5:00 pm, so we had the whole beach to ourselves, save for our server. Overall, we highly, highly recommend Arenas del Mar!
