Best hotel in Manuel Antonio Area Costa Rica
This hotel was amazing! The food at the restaurant was to die for. I've traveled to Costa Rica three times and this was the best by far. First, you can't beat the view. Second, the service was top notch. Third, we saw monkeys, sloths, and other animals at the hotel, which was awesome. Fourth, the food was 5 star all the way. Fifth, the hotel has beach access to two beaches with one being private. No other hotel has their own beach access, much less a private beach. Easily the best hotel in the region.

Unique boutique hotel with top notch service
We arrived at arenas del Mar late in the evening and the first impression in the dark does not do the hotel justice. The place is amazing! You are on top of a hill at this beautiful resort with access to 2 beaches (not typical for the area). The stay was made even better by the outstanding customer service by all the staff. Wonderful experience! Highly recommend this beautiful, interesting boutique hotel!
