Perfect wedding
We were there for a wedding. Everything was wonderful. Beautiful resort, great service.

Arenas del Mar is fantastic! My husband and I went for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The staff is so friendly and pays attention to detail. The location is breathtaking and the views from the room make it feel very private. From reading online about the resort, we weren't aware of just how much land they have. The reception, restaurant, and rooms are spaced out with a lot of steep hills in between. They staff will transport you wherever you need to go by golf cart. They are very prompt when you ask for a ride; most of the time they were waiting outside our building by the time we walked down from our room. The staff was great about booking activities for us to do and arranging transportation from the resort and back. We also thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants. There was one directly on the beach and one formal one. The food was great - lots of fresh fruits and seafood and they catered well to my husband's gluten allergy! Overall, I highly recommend. I can't think of a better place to stay in Costa Rica if you want the best of the rain forest and the beach!

Best Hotel Room Ever!
This hotel was the best. Best room ever! Amazing views. I could see ocean and forest from our amazing balcony. I could not see or hear other people and rooms. The sound of the waves crashing was meditative. Food was excellent. We rarely left the hotel. But when we did, everything was close by. Beach was awesome. Semi private due to remote location. Everything provided such as chairs, towels, etc.

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!
