We had a wonderful adventure with three couples who have travelled together far and wide. We rated our stay at Arenas del Mar as even more relaxing than our usual cruises, and that's saying a lot! Loved the staff, all very friendly and helpful, by the second day they all know your names and seem like longtime friends. Rooms were gorgeous and very clean, even saw a mama humpback whale with her new baby rolling in the surf from the spacious balcony on our first day. Sloths, spider monkeys, howler monkey and iguanas came to visit us right at the resort. Choice of two lovely beaches, one secluded and extremely relaxing with great food, drinks and lounge chairs.under the trees. The other beach was perfect for the walk to Manuel Antonio Park, the hotel staff even waited for us at this beach entrance as it was dark when we finally strolled back. The front desk was very helpful with side trips, we enjoyed a sailing adventure where we saw more whales, a swinging bridge park tour with the hotel nature guide, and the national park, they gave great advice and took care of all the essentials. Others with us went on a succesful deep-sea fishing adventure and the hotel Chef graciously created a masterpiece with the bounty. A very nice spa is on the property with big windows overlooking the jungle to watch the monkeys playing while enjoying the ultimate relaxing massage. We honestly can say we will return at every opportunity. So much to do and experience with superb surroundings to just relax and veg out, whatever your heart desires. This trip will certainly be near the top of all the great adventures!
