Did not like feeling like I needed to tip all the time to golf cart drivers, maids, waiters, bar keeps and then tip was added on my bill at the end. Better if they turned down tips

8/10 Very good

Mixed feelings. Beautiful location and the rooms. Very good food BUT all the waiters were so unhappy serving people and it took forever to get the order so we switched completely to the room service that we did not have to interact with them. The spa was also a big disappointment. Appointment at 10:00 and at 9:55 the spa still locked up with the explanation that they open at 10:00! So in the second they open you hop on the table. No concept of welcome drink or relaxation before the treatment. Therefore the golf cart drivers were so happy, friendly and accommodating. Really great guys reading your mind. The room keeping was great and the room itself too. So it was a weird mixture. Considering that we paid $1,200 per night there should be no mixture of bad and great service. It should be all great. We would not return there although the location at the private beach was great.

I loved this resort! Great location, great service, breakfast was excellent. The beach was beautiful as were pools/restaurants. I saw sooo many animals. Hotel staff was so happy and so helpful. I felt completely pampered and treated like royalty. I couldn't recommend enough and I have stayed at many hotels/many countries. I loved the mini-bar which was free and well stocked with snacks, beer and bottles of wine! Front desk scheduled all my transportation, tours - they definitely take care of you. If you are staying in CR, definitely stay here!!

Hope we have a chance to come back!
We had a wonderful stay at Arenas Del Mar- all of the staff were so friendly and provided helpful recommendations. We were upgraded and our room was very close to the private beach which was lovely; the only issue was that it didn’t feel super private, since the windows and patio faced out to a heavily trafficked area. The hill to get in / out of the property is quite steep - just something to be aware of! We had a pretty small rental car, but didn’t experience any issues. The staff offered to drive it back up to the main road if we needed. We had dinner one night in town, and used transportation provided by Arenas which was very convenient. We also ate one night at Mirador and it was great! Delicious cocktails and food, albeit a bit more expensive than you’d find if you venture off the property. Overall a great experience and we would love to visit again.
