"book it without hesitation"
friendly staff, delicious breakfast, amazing view, knowledgeable guides, great place to enjoy your vacationGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice recluded resort with beautiful ocean views. However, the Superior Room was very small to accommodate 2 people (for couple guests) - no desk with chairs - making it uncomfortable. Continental Breakfast and restaurant staff were wonderful. Resort offers Free Wireless Internet and free international phone calls!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was built into the rain-forest with lush tropical trees and vegetation everywhere. Lots of wildlife, monkeys, sloths, ect... You can relax on beach or pool. You are taken by electric cart wherever you would like to go on the premises. No waiting, you call and they are usually waiting for you when you come out of your room. Staff are wonderful. […] Only complaint is we couldn't stay longer. Did I mention there's a personal hot-tub on the huge patio. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for family or couples..."
From arrival t departure, this hotel is 5 stars. The staff, the facilities, and most of all the location, are what memories are made of. The drive to the hotel in no way prepares you for what you will find when you arrive. We were treated to the best life has to offer. Don't miss out on this place if you are planning to stay in Manuel Antonio.Genuine Expedia guest review
The highlight of our trip to Costa Rica was our stay at Arenas Del Mar. I think the biggest key to their success is the amazing staff they have. Each person there made us feel like VIPs, and they were so genuinely kind and wanting to help us. I loved it!! One of them even came to our room to let us know when the monkeys were really near by because we […] had been wanting to see them. We saw WAY more wildlife on the property than we did at Manuel Antonio Park (I would suggest just skipping that!!!) The park is really convenient to get to - it's a 10 minute walk down the beach. Overall, loved this hotel and definitely recommend it to all my family and friends. Thank you, Elaine, Sergio, Alex, Rodbin, Ariel, Ronny, Pedro, and Yahaira , and the others that I may have forgotten!!!! We miss you guys already!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A must stay!"
We loved everything about this hotel!! Everyone was so friendly and gracious, always greeting us by our names. The restaurant was wonderful. The easy access to beach and surfing was awesome. The kids especially loved seeing the monkeys, sloths, iguanas hanging out at the property! Fun fun time. Would definitely come back again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Honeymoon Costa Rica Destination"
We stayed at Arenas Del Mar for 5 nights for our honeymoon. We flew in late at night...so we stayed in San Jose for one night before making the trip out. It took 2hrs 45min to get to the hotel from San Jose in our rental car. The hotel is amazing - it's right in the jungle..but steps away from the beach. Need golf carts to get around...but once you […] call them, they come within minutes, so it's not a hassle. (You dont have to tip for each ride) The best part was the food - amazing continental breakfast - gourmet pancakes, french toast, burritos, "typical" costa rican breakfast dishes. We ate at the restaurant one night - amazing too. Happy hour everyday from 6-7pm at the bar (which closes at 10pm) - the drinks were amazing too. The area is great - drive up a steep hill, and you have world class restaurants just 5 minutes away driving (Kapi Kapi, Rafaels Terrazco, Salsipuedes). The place is just 10 min driving from a great national park - manuel antonio - and also 10 min away from awesome zip lining ($60 per person), and 15min driving away from a must-do mangrove forest boat ride. You must stay here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Where else can you sit on a private beach, stay in a 5 star hotel and see monkeys on property!!! Great place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Best hotel stay I've ever had. The service was personal and impeccable. Though the hotel is located in a busy/ touristy area, it is quite secluded and feels rather private. Lovely beach. Incredible breakfast included with the room. Perfect place for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing property - great location to Manuel Antoni"

"Amazing Wildlife at Resort"
My husband and I just spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica and 4 nights at Arenas del Mar. This property is pretty amazing. We saw a ton of wildlife right on the premises including: monkies, sloths, iguanas, ducks, raccoons and even a scorpion. The views from the rooms are second to none. We had a blast swimming in the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast […] and lunches at the restaurants. The dinners were good, but not exceptional. If you are looking for a unique boutique property and love wildlife this is the place for you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxing place to stay for couples or families"
I can't say enough about this hotel and its staff. The food was amazing, the staff were so incredibly helpful and friendly and the room was so comfortable. My husband and I travelled with our 1 year old and she was treated so well that it made our trip relaxing while allowing couples there without children to enjoy their quiet time. The hotel provided […] us with a crib, highchairs, toys for the beach, extra food while we waited for our meal in case our little one was a bit impatient..... The hotel went out of their way. The views from the Ocean View rooms were worth every extra penny. The massage at the spa was relaxing. The beach was clean and great for body boarding. You can walk along the beach to the entrance of Manuel Antonio park (recommended). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"6 stars out of 5!"
Without a doubt, the best resort we have ever been to. Not only was it in an beautiful location and built to a very high standard but the staff were simply incredible. Their attention to detail and genuine friendliness made our experience the most fantastic we've had on any vacation. The room was amazing, the food excellent, and the fact that the resort […] operated with high attention given to sustainability and environmental impact was a huge plus. A special thank you to Allen and Rodbin who went above and beyond. If I could give it 6 stars I would! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A peace of paradise"
A little hard to find by car but once there we do not want to move! All staff is discreet and attentive to our needs. We spent 2 lovely days in this little paradise on the beach on the Pacific coast. A perfect end to the trip before returning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Arenas del Mar took our breath away. We only stayed there a few nights because of the cost but it was the highlight of our trip. The rooms were great and the service was wonderful. The staff really went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay there. The private beach is a real gem and guests can access a second beach and walk to downtown Manuel […] Antonio if they want. The only negative comment is the fact that we had to take a taxi to get to and from town, but it was not expensive so we wouldn't let that deter anyone from staying there.

Spent 3 nights at this great resort. Room was a bit small but the outdoor patio with sink and bar fridge is where we spent our down time. Resort was on the mountain but our room was right on the beach. Staff would pick yoou up on a golf cart and take you anywhere you had to go on the resort. this was an exceptional resort and I look forward to retu […] rning.

"One of a kind!"
Amazing! We spent three nights here during a 17 day trip to Costa Rica - our honeymoon. Monkeys everywhere, staff was super friendly, the hotel premises were divine. A slice of paradise. Very private and super romantic. Take the nature hike with Roger into the national park. He is very knowledgable and friendly. He genuinely likes nature and we were […] lucky enough to spot sloths, monkeys, and even a snake! Once again the staff made this trip extra memorable as they were incredible hosts and welcomed us. They are all about the "pura vida". 100% worth every penny. One thing though, the premises is full of steep walks and a taxi is necessary to get to Manuel Antonio proper as well as to Quepos. As for getting around the hotel itself staff is readily drive you around in their many golf carts. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quelle mauvaise surprise, cet établissement."
Il s'agit d'un vieil hôtel, les chambres sont petites ( par exemple la no 502 ), les oreillers vraiment mauvais, la douche a un pommeau des années 1970, les piscines sont minuscules et une est toujours à l'ombre. Le personnel est plutôt sympathique, sauf au restaurant une certaine Yendry qui ne sourit jamais et est presque rude. La plage publique est […] remplie de voitures sur la plage, et de chiens qui bien sûr font leurs besoins devant vous. Non, cet hôtel ne vaut pas le quart de son prix. Une partie du chemin n'est pas éclairé, le soir. Nous avons trouvés de bien meilleurs établissements à 70 km de là, des vrais palaces cette fois. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"gute Lage, jedoch in die Jahre gekommen"
Schönes Hotel in guter Lage mit Zugang zu zwei Stränden. Leider ist dass Hotel bereits in die Jahre gekommen was man hier und da schon merkt. Preis/Leistung ist meiner Meinung nach nicht gut.Genuine Expedia guest review
Merveilleux, localisation extraordinaire.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Tres bon souvenir .Hôtel un peu difficile à trouver mais une fois que l on y est , on est charmé par la gentillesse du personnel qui fait beaucoup d'efforts pour apporter au client un service personnalisée. La plage quasi privée ,la vue exceptionnelle des chambres et des terrasses , ainsi que la qualité du restaurant en font un hôtel très agréable et […] recommandable pour y passer quelques jours .A noter que le parc Manuel Antonio est accessible à pied par la plage en une vingtaine de minutes.A conseiller ,un des plus beaux hotels de notre séjour .

"Paradijs op Costa rica!"
Prachtig gelegen hotel met privestrand en een prachtig regenwoud met enorm veel dieren (slangen, apen, krabben, luiaards, leguanen, vlinders) op eigen terrein. Het personeel is zeer vriendelijke en stelt alles in het werk om je verblijf tot een geweldige ervaring te maken. Eten is voortreffelijk en goed geprijsd. Wij hadden een superior room met zeezicht […] aan te raden, want het uitzicht is prachtig. Je kan lopend over het strand naar nationaal park Manuel antonio. Ga niet ik het weekend, veel te druk. Zou zeker terug gaan naar het hotel. Kan geen 1 min punt bedenken... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Minivacaciones de ensueño"
Como médico, después de una ardua semana de trabajo, nada mejor que haber llegado a Arenas del Mar, en una escapada romántica con mi pareja. Este hotel abarca todo lo que estaba buscando: una habitación de lujo con hermosa vista al mar, jacuzzi incluido en cada habitación, el baño no podía ser mejor, incluyendo el shampoo, acondicionador y jabón corporal […] debidamente elaborados con materiales silvestres. La limpieza impecable, en un lugar que invita a fundirse con la naturaleza. El personal fue encantador desde nuestra llegada hasta nuestra salida. El desayuno presenta una variedad de platillos a escoger que fácilmente te ponen en una encrucijada para decidir por cuál escoger porque todos parecen deliciosos. La naturaleza que rodea el lugar es impresionante, tuvimos la bendición de observar dos osos perezosos de cerca. Me encantaron las piscinas y las bancas para descansar. Alrededor de la hermosa playa pude leer algunos capítulos de un buen libro que compré recientemente mientras degustaba el mejor batido de mango que he probado en mi vida. Recomiendo este hotel a ojos cerrados! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
