We will definitely be back!
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.

Great Experience in Manuel Antonio
This place was amazing. Great location right in the rain forest by the beach. The room was spacious with a large balcony and great view. The private beach was a highlight and easy to get all to yourself. The included breakfast as well as dinner and drinks were all good quality and fresh. Overall the best part was the service though. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful!
Nathan, us2 night trip
Very good 8,0
Just above average
Free non buffet breakfast disappointing. Beach amenities disappointing. Two small pools. But room and staff could not be more pleasant or helpful. They get the best rating! Perhaps better in peak season. August is off season.

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!
