Incredible service, magical location, breathtaking
Arenas Del Mar was fantastic, an absolute dream! The service was impeccable, the location was incredible and the food was delicious. We stayed for 8 days and didn't want to leave! The beach was perfect and the circle swing was so fun. Sunset on this beach was breathtaking. The wildlife on the property was amazing, sloths, white face, squirrel and howler monkeys. Raccoons, frogs and lizards galore! We loved the happy hour and the drinks were yummy. They were so accommodating to our 8 month old son and everyone, I mean EVERYONE, knew his name and ours. They all knew every activity we were doing each day, provided suggestions and had our breakfast ready with our favorite table and high hair when we walked in. This place was absolutely dreamy and we will be back! Also, we used the bathtub every night and that was also an amazing perk of this place. Oh, and the complimentary laundry service (because we stayed so long) was incredible!!! To come home from a long trip without oodles of laundry was the cherry on top of an incredible vacation. Shout out to Tatiana and Yuliana and Christian who could always make our baby laugh and the tour guides Esteban and Maurico who took us on some incredible adventures we will never forget!

Best hotel in Manuel Antonio Area Costa Rica
This hotel was amazing! The food at the restaurant was to die for. I've traveled to Costa Rica three times and this was the best by far. First, you can't beat the view. Second, the service was top notch. Third, we saw monkeys, sloths, and other animals at the hotel, which was awesome. Fourth, the food was 5 star all the way. Fifth, the hotel has beach access to two beaches with one being private. No other hotel has their own beach access, much less a private beach. Easily the best hotel in the region.

Unique boutique hotel with top notch service
We arrived at arenas del Mar late in the evening and the first impression in the dark does not do the hotel justice. The place is amazing! You are on top of a hill at this beautiful resort with access to 2 beaches (not typical for the area). The stay was made even better by the outstanding customer service by all the staff. Wonderful experience! Highly recommend this beautiful, interesting boutique hotel!
