My husband and I (mid 60's) stayed at this outstanding resort for 3 nights first week of March and we can't say enough about it. The jaw-dropping location on the beach, beautiful and immaculate grounds, gorgeous rooms and great food are surpassed only by the warm, friendly staff

We spent 5 days at this wonderful hotel on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. It’s about a 3 hour drive from the International Airport but well worth it. Set in a piece of rainforest just outside Manuel Antonio National Park this hotel has small blocks of luxurious accommodation down a

Response from CayugaCollection, Manager at Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort
Responded 14 Feb 2019
Greetings from Manuel Antonio! Thanks for your fantastic review, Kevin! It makes us so happy to know that you had such a great stay with us. We're particularly pleased to read that our staff left such a good impression and gave you a real taste of our pura vida culture, and that our Sustainability Tour inspired you :) If it makes you feel a little better about your flight, your stay with us at least was carbon neutral! Thanks again for choosing Arenas Del Mar and we hope you'll be back someday soon for another vacation of a lifetime.

We only had two nights here, but it was wonderful! Upon arrival we went straight to the beach bar and had lunch - it was fantastic! The server was really friendly and cheerful (and funny) - all the staff were that way. The grounds had some steep sections, so you could walk off

I can't say enough about this hotel! We had just come from Nayara Springs so at first we were taken aback by the size of the room as it was much smaller but then again at NS we had a huge suite with our own jacuzzi pool in a very private setting! After about one night we quickly

Safe to walk out of resort to local hotels, bars, restaurants?
My wife & I made the walk along the beach to the shops & restaurants in Manuel Antonio area. It is a long walk but we felt very safe. The resort will shuttle shuttle you to this area as well. We also took the shuttle to the Marina in Quepos and had dinner. A very nice area. On previous trips we have taken the shuttle to Quepos shopping area and felt just fine.

Nearby restaurants?
Not really - a few simple places along the larger beach for lunch (20 minutes walk) or on top of the hill or downtown in the evening (steep uphill walk there or we were charged $11 for the hotel minibus one way). But we found prices were generally quite high everywhere.

Is there any fishing available? Especially if I bring my own fly rods?
You can rent a fishing boat at Quepos Marina (10 mi. drive from Arenas del Mar) The hotel I believe also can arrange this for you. Boat rentals: sunset sails tours Hope you find what you are looking for.

"Our room was fantastic. Ocean sounds all night. Rooms near the water are best"
"they have suites which we would go for next time but the single room with ocean view was fantastic!"
