This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it turned out to be an incredible vacation! We stayed for 8 nights at Arenas Del Mar so we really got to know the hotel and restaurant staff well. This is a first class property with staff to match! Everyone from the restaurant staff, the concierge, bartenders, housekeeping, the "golf-cart" drivers, etc, etc. were polite, friendly, and upbeat (Pura Vida!). The hotel is situated perfectly - surrounded by lush jungle and just steps from a beautiful beach. The food in the main restaurant was delicious - we tried nearly everything on the menu during our stay. We spent half of our time simply relaxing - walking on the beach, swimming in the pool, eating/drinking, etc -- the other half of the time we were busy with activities i.e. zip-lining, ATV, exploring Manuel Antonio Park, renting a Vespa (type) scooter, and swimming in a waterfall lagoon. We had an awesome time and will DEFINITELY come back here again!!
