Arenas del Mar
Arenas del Mar is a first class luxury Pacific coast beach resort close to Manuel Antonio good for couples and families alike.
The first class Arenas del Mar is a secluded beach resort close to Manuel Antonio with its sweep of golden sands and nearby jungle-stifled national park. Unusually, it appeals to both couples seeking a romantic and relaxing base on this stretch of the Pacific coast and families with children: there are convenient connecting rooms as well as a good range of facilities to keep youngsters occupied. It has a very welcoming atmosphere, and is not at all formal.
The hotel has two beach options within very easy reach. Security guards are stationed at the access points at both beaches and they also provide a beach service. Golf carts are available 24 hours a day to ferry guests around.
All the well equipped and spacious rooms have terraces overlooking the ocean or rainforest and an outdoor decking area. They are all furnished with kitchenette and minibar – suites have a lounge area too.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
This hotel, and its situation, is one of the most beautiful and luxurious we have ever stayed in. The view from our sunloungers of the ocean crashing on the rocks was spectacular and we had a sloth in the trees above to keep an eye on too (very easy as he didn't move!). The pool was lovely too and although the hotel was full when we stayed nothing seemed crowded and there were plenty of loungers, towels and tables etc. The service was excellent from all the staff on the beach, in the cafe, and the drivers who chauffeured us around the site. The menu in the main restaurant let the hotel down we felt - trying to hard to be novel perhaps - and they only serve red wine chilled - and apparently we were the first people to complain about this! Having to change to white wine, beer or cocktails was not a problem howeverMS, London
