Arenas del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort is probably one of our favorite hotels in all of Costa Rica. This hotel has it all in our opinion. We will start with what is always most important to us and that is their commitment to sustainability. They received the maximum 5 leaves given by the Costa Rica government for commitment to sustainability in operating their hotel. You might be thinking this is a rustic ecolodge to have such low impact on the environment. It turns out this is one of the most luxurious hotels you will find in the Manuel Antonio area. This is extremely important for the area because the Manuel Antonio Natoinal Park is a very small park and the area is highly populated. All hotels and resorts in the area need to operate sustianably for the park to last.

The Arenas del Mar Resort has the perfect location sitting privately on an edge of rock that sits about 30 ft straight up from where the waves crash. This gives you the sound of the pacific crashing from everywhere in the hotel. The Arenas del Mar Resort also has it's own private beach where you can walk to from the hotel. The Central pacific region of Costa Rica is one of very rough terrain and getting close to the beach can sometimes be difficult but not at Arenas del Mar. Here you have it all. You have the rough terrain that allows your rooms to be sitting on an edge giving you breath taking views of the pacific. You are also just steps away from a private beach down below. The hike will have your calves burning but nothing too strenuous and well worth it.

The Arenas del Mar Resort is isolated in a populated area of Manuel Antonio. You will make your way down a curvy road tucked behind the crowded touristy seen and feel you are on your private island yet just 10 minutes from the many shops, restaurants, and activities of Quepos and Manuel Antonio. This is a perfect hotel for a Costa Rican honeymoon and also works very well for family vacations.

The Arenas del Mar Resort rooms are a blend of colonial and tropical design which makes for the perfect setting for being surrounded by rainforest and the pacific ocean. The rooms are filled with some of the finest amenities while keeping in mind their commitment to sustainability, such as their own organic soaps. This is an amazing place that we know you will enjoy. Our only comment would be that it is located in the area of Manuel Antonio which can be a crowded touristy are during sometimes of the year. Arenas del Mar is located in a very private setting which helps balance that out if you are looking to get away from the crowds.
