How to begin... We did not stay at the hotel but our concierge booked a private (intimate) dinner for me to surprise my wife on our 20th wedding anniversary. Ricardo was our waiter for a incredible experience at Arenas del Mar. Upon arrival he actually had 2 beautifully set dinner tables for us. One under the cover of the bar area in case of rain (it is the rain forest) and duplicate table set out on the beachfront with spectacular views of the sun setting over the Pacific. With no rain we opted for the beachside table and the view and sounds of the crashing surf was absolutely amazing. Ricardo personally prepared us amazing cocktails and guided us through the menu offering us his insight into the more local fare items on the menu (when in Rome, right). He was spot on with all his suggestions and we enjoyed the ambiance and the amazing meal. My wife was totally taken back by this one of a kind experience and I cannot thank Ricardo (and the staff at Arenas del Mar) enough for making it all so unforgettable.
