Beautiful location with convenient access to two beaches, one private and one public. Breakfast and meals at Playitas restaurant were very good quality. The Mirador restaurant is not as good of a value....I was expecting better food for the price. The property is on a very steep hill, so its not practical to walk to other restaurants from there, but you can get a taxi or they will take you in their shuttle. They will also drive you around the property in a golf cart...otherwise its very steep walking. You can see wildlife on the property (monkeys, macaws, etc.). We also did the national park tour with Esteban, and he did an excellent job helping us to spot wildlife there. Highly recommend a private tour starting early in the morning to avoid crowds at the beach. View from our room (Ocean View Premium) 603A was incredible.

Where to begin. This was the best hotel stay my girlfriend and I ever had in our lives. The initial greeting was great, and the good vibes continued during our entire stay. We saw sloths, white faced monkeys, howler monkeys, and squirrel monkeys all ON PROPERTY! Half of which were even from OUR ROOM! Not to mention the hotel is beach front and has easy access to a beautiful public and private beach.The staff was next level. Nelson was a very kind server and went out of his way to help us. Jason was also a great server, patient and enjoyed teaching us Spanish. Christian both kindly greeted us and helped us depart. He even loaded all of our bags into our car while we enjoyed our final breakfast. Alberto helped us multiple times (especially learn Spanish) and even went out of his way to provide a bag of cold aloe for us because we were badly sunburnt (Christian made sure we got it). We knew the staff by name and they knew ours (Mateo y Raquel). You will not get better service than this.We had an amazing 10 day Costa Rica experience but Arenas Del Mar was the best part. We added an extra day because it was so good. We will be back.

Arenas Del Mar was one of the best locations that my wife and I stayed at. The beach was so breathtaking alone with the rainforest. Think about it having the both together right at your door step for the price of one, and talking about price the resort was extremely affordable. I would recommend this property as a charming experience. It was perfect for my wife’s birthday, I really scored choosing this property. Thanks a million

Our stay was way too short but the staff at Arenas del Mar were nothing short of amazing. Their attention to detail, friendliness, and willingness to help make any request happen was wonderful.
