We booked this hotel almost as an afterthought to round out our Costa Rican travels and it ended up being the best part of our stay! We were greeted with deliciously refreshing welcome beverages made of coconut milk, mint and pineapple and a friendly staff who offered to help us book any tours we were interested in. When we arrived... More

My girlfriend and I have just come back from staying 8 days at the Arenas Del Mar Resort and everything about the experience was above and beyond even my wildest expectations. First off, the resort offers stunning views of the rugged Manuel Antonio coastline which can be seen from your room, the dining area, or the screen saver worthy private... More

We visited Arenas del Mar in early September and had an amazing time! Our hotel room had amazing views of the ocean with a private jacuzzi on our balcony. The private beach is stunning and we saw monkeys multiple times. I am such a foodie and found the food to be first rate. The complimentary breakfast is so tasty -... More

This hotel is amazing! It has its own beautiful private beach with sun and shade, has two lovely pools with great sitting areas, and is surrounded by beautiful and lush nature. Tons of monkeys, sloths, iguanas and other animals live on the grounds and you will see them all the time! So fun! We are here during low season and... More

The whole experience was excellent, amazed by way the hotel is immersed in the rainforest. All staff members are extremely nice and helpful. All amenities come from local companies, which makes this hotel very responsible with the environment and the community.

Stayed 3 nights at the hotel. We had a suite with connecting rooms with an ocean view on second floor. The service here is exemplary. Alexander at the front desk was always so helpful and friendly. Anything we asked for they assisted us with. Golf carts are there to take you around the resort which has steep roads. The only... More

Having read some of the negative reviews, I was a little worried. But actually, we had nothing to worry about. We topped off the last few days of our holiday here and it was fantastic. Lots of wildlife around and beautiful beaches, with loads of potential activities on offer. The food was great but expensive. Breakfast was lovely too. We... More
