We were welcomed by the Resort staff with a wonderful fruit drink and driven by golf cart to our suites. Once we had settled in the monkeys came around to welcome us...

My wife and I took our four kids to Arenas Del Mar. It was truly unreal. The raw beauty of the rain forest and the ocean is a one of a kind. We thought the bugs would be bad but everything is working in balance so not a bite. There is plenty to do on the beaches and by the...

I stayed here with my daughter for one night while touring the Manuel Antonio park. This hotel is nestled onto the jungle and has its own private beach as well. While going up to our room for the first time, we saw a large group of howler monkeys making their way through the trees outside our door. Later, at dinner,...

Going on wildlife tours with Ersel, one of...

The staff at the hotel was just great - almost invisible when I did not need to see them, but always there when I needed something. They were very patient with my kid.

I have celiac disease and so I am extremely allergic to gluten. The owner of the resort, Jeremy, assured me I was completely safe eating at Arenas Del Mar and he was right.
