We stayed here as part of a package (3 nights in Arenal, 3 at Tango Mar, 1 near San Jose). The beach is gorgeous, although the waves can be rough, but the nicest, quietest beach of anything we drove near. The resort is isolated, so we were happy to have a car, although we only went out once, and the restaurant food not very good for dinner, especially for vegetarians--breakfast buffet was quite sufficient. We were happy to have brought along some bread, peanut butter, bananas, etc for picnics on the beach or balcony for lunch!
We all enjoyed walking along the beach, poking around the rocks, tidepools, small caves; "hiking" (more like strolling) to the waterfall and overlook and passing parakeets and monkey families along the way; hanging out in the hammocks; and playing in the ocean (boogie boards free at the front desk) and the pools.
The friendly staff opened several coconuts which our son found on the beach so we could drink the coconut water and the staff always pleasant and helpful.
Rooms were clean and spacious, beautiful balconies overlooking the ocean.
We went on the horseback ride--definitely a step up from typical US trail rides where you slowly bump along. We saw a lot of the area, including riding through some hot, dry terrain, ending up on the rocky beach and had a water break under a mango tree full of monkeys. The guide spoke limited English, certainly sufficient for leading us.
