We stayed in the Arena Blanca Hotel in Playa Carrillo for 4 nights at the end of our Costa Rica trip. We have seen so many great locations and also some other hotels and lodges on our tour by car through this lovely country. But this combination (location, stuff and hotel) was the best of all at all events.
The first impression when arriving in Playa Carillo is the long, wide, coconut-palm-lined and lovely beach. There never have been more than 5-10 people on this beach on working days. It´s the right place to simply relax and enjoy the sea.
The hotel is located a few hundred metres away from the end of this great beach. Teo junior and his team are friendly and helpful hosts. They try to make your stay as perfect as possible. If any question appears (eg. re recommended trips, restaurants, bars, ...) or if you want to reserve a trip or something like that (eg. sea turtles watching) Teo always is the right guy to talk with. The breakfast is delicious aswell. The rooms are clean and roomy. We recommend this hotel and location warmly to everyone visiting Costa Rica and Nicoya Peninsula!!
