Amazing grounds, views, beach, staff and fantastic service. Staff bent over backwards to make sure our stay was first class. Restaurant had a succulent menu selection. Gluten and lactose free options were available. Look forward to coming back here again.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and it was AMAZING. The breakfast was great. There were 2 pools. The private beach is beautiful and the surfing lessons is a MUST DO. It's so fun that every where you go you can take a golf car for example at night or just if you are tired, also they come... More

We stayed in this hotel 6 nights. It is really fantastic hotel. We stayed at room 303A. Excellent room. Breakfast is delicious. Facilities are great. The hotel is located in a rainforest on the beach. You can see in the hotel more animal than you we'll see at Manuel Antonio park. Above all is the service - extra ordinary! All... More

From the moment we arrived at the airport, first class. I've never had wifi in a van driving through the jungle! The resort is gorgeous, the rooms impeccable, the service outstanding. I literally cried once we were shown to the room. I had never spent on a resort like this for my son and I... I was so proud of... More

Giving Arenas Del Mar only 5 stars makes us feel uneasy — this boutique hotel undoubtedly deserve a full 10! We have only been to Costa Rica once a year prior, but this year we wanted to bring back our children to experience the Pura Vida life and culture. Without a doubt, staying at Arenas Del Mar made this experience... More

Love this place. Perfect for our family. Beautiful grounds. Monkeys, iguanas and other wildlife everywhere. Great beaches with sand toys, games and boogie boards available for free. Great waves so the kids especially enjoyed boogie boarding. Kindest and most friendly staff I've ever encountered. Great food with good kid options. They also fill your mini fridge with complimentary Costa Rican... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel, the staff, the location, the surroundings and Costa Rica itself. We saw three types on monkeys, two types of toucans, parakeets, parrots and a sloth on the hotel grounds! The day trips are well planned and will cater to the desires of the guests. Customer service is top notch. I would recommend this... More

Beautiful location, in the midst of trees above the beach. Extremely nice staff. Don't miss the tour to Manuel Antonio park with Valerie the hotel guide - definitely the highlight of our stay! The room was big with a great view of the ocean. The place does not have a gym so we were offered a ride to a nearby... More
