After spending 2 days in Arenal, our family spent the remaining 5 days of the trip at Diria.
The previous posts had me nervous, but I have no complaints with this hotel. It appears many of the previous complaints have been addressed. There is a system to make sure the guests have towels. Also, security is posted at each entrance and you wear a wrist band to enter the hotel area. we never felt in any danger walking around with our four kids.
Now onto the adventure. Although the activity coordinator was not that good ... we recommend scheduling the activities through the hotel. They are hooked up with some great companies who put safety and service at the top of the list.
Our family took surfing lessons, rode horseback, and snorlked ... with each company, they always looked out for the children's safety and the guide were really fun and engaging. I would spend the extra money with the hotel's connections and have a good time.
One restaurant I have to brag on is Mama's Deli ... it is not a deli but a great Italian restaurant. We ate there two nights and the pizza, seafood, and authenic food was great.
