This is my first entry on trip advisor and even though we went to Costa Rica in June, I still have wonderful memories of our trip and have wanted to write this review since the day we came home. My family and I went to Costa Rica for the first time and we stayed at Arenas del Mar in June 2014. We all loved it so very much! The staff were amazing! All of the staff were so warm and friendly and so accommodating! We felt like family! We stayed at Arenas del mar during the World Cup and the hotel guests and the staff all watched the soccer games together and they painted our faces with the Costa Rican flag. We all cheered and hugged when the Costa Rican team won. The staff and management went out of their way to make our trip so memorable. Our room was immaculate as was the whole resort! The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed the waves and the kids loved their surfing lessons with Alex. Alex gave us a pineapple and the bartender gladly cut it up for us and we all shared it! We still talk about the fantastic food and fruit that we got on our trip!! We loved the nature tours, the beach and surfing, the food and the pools! I especially enjoyed the functional training workouts in the early mornings! At first I was disappointed because there was no fitness room, but these workouts were more challenging than any workout I could have done in a gym and they were lead by the hotel manager!! Thanks for everything! I would highly recommend Arenas del Mar to families, couples or single individuals!!! Beth and Frank
