Very Good8.0
Worked for us....
My family and I live in Jaco, CR and stayed here one night for our anniversary. Because I knew its location from our favorite beach, Playa Manta, it was perfect for us. Yes, we had a car, so getting to the beach was no problem. The hotel, rooms, and pool were very clean and well maintained. The food was good, and we didn't find the music to be too loud as mentioned in other reviews. We were also there in "off season". It's a hotel popular with locals, so if you come during Costa Rica school break, it will be very busy. For us, it was quiet and tranquil with plenty of chairs and no waiting for drinks or snacks. Overall, it was a good experience for us.

Wonderful experience at Hotel Arenas Playa Blanca
We absolutely enjoyed our three nights at this hotel. It is suited for families more then a couples' hotel if you are looking for quiet time. A great place to bring young children. The staff is extremely professional and very polite and helpful. It's a great location to just stay in that area or venture out to close places such as Carara national park and some other close area towards the mountains for bird sighting.

Less touristy Playa Blanca beach walkable.
We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights and had a decent stay. The hotel is conveniently located to the Playa Blanca beach, which is less touristy compared to Jaco. The hotel itself was noisy as there was loud music playing around the pool almost the entire day. Good reason not to be inside and go enjoy the beach. They have a decent breakfast and the rooms were fine too (typical 3 star hotel) If you are a slave to google maps, then you will be routed via a horrible unpaved and bumpy road to this hotel. However, there is an alternate paved road with a separate entrance that we learned about after we reached the hotel. Keep an eye for Punta Leona hotel entrance and save yourself from the bumpy ride.

Pricey for what little it offers
The hotel location is not good for those not driving. The beach Punta mantas is so-so and not worth it. To go to the better Playa Blanca beach, you have to wait for low tide and walk over rocks, something a family would not do. The hotel does not offer any shuttle service to take guests to the beach. You are restricted to the restaurant on the property -a Pizzeria or another full service restaurant. Restaurants hardly offer any variety in terms of vegetarian choices. Service in restaurants is very slow and poor. We had to eat Pizzas for lunch and dinner because the other restaurant was only offering a buffet for dinner. Front desk staff are hardly helpful in suggesting what you could do to spend time. they stick to their scripted answers non chalantly -just hang around here... the only redeeming feature is the big sized pool -but there is only so much time you can spend in the pool.
