This hotel was the Dina destination of a fabulous Bucket List Birthday celebration! We started in the Pacuare Outdoor Center after rafting, zip lining and Tarzan swinging through the jungle. A relaxing two days at the Springs Hotel in La Fortuna and this magnificent luxury hotel was our final spot! The service at this hotel is spot on and welcomed....

This hotel is a total scam. First of all, this picture that you see with a pool is a very technical one. The pool is tiny and this area is basically all the infrastructure the hotel has. I didn´t even check-in the hotel because of the attitude of the workers there. After being very well welcomed by a security named...

From the moment we pulled up in our car to the moment we left we were treated like we were the only ones at the resort. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable and the snacks that were refilled every day were a nice addition. The golf cart service to get around was very convenient....

We cannot say enough good things about this property and the staff. This was a family trip that managed to give my husband and I some adult time and the kids serious fun. We often stay in big luxury resorts for family vacations. This time with our family of four, ( kids ages 12 and 9) we wanted a luxury...

We stayed for two nights here -- wished we stayed longer to be able to participate in the free Tortilla Making Tour and Green Tour because each one is only offered once a day. Both sounded like they would have been wonderful based on other reviews. The "reception" area is different than the check-in area and you will need to...

We stayed here for three nights on our recent trip to Costa Rica. This place is beautiful. Our ocean breeze suite was ideal for a family of four. The balcony was unreal - offering panoramic views of the trees, beach and ocean. The hot tub on the balcony was perfect for cooling off after a day at the beach. During...

This is a luxury resort. It is very pricey for Costa Rica and secluded, but beautifully appointed and run. Would be great for a couples getaway or a ladies' get together vacation. Rooms: We had a 2 bedroom suite with a gigantic balcony. Located on a hillside, the lower buildings (100's- 300's) are a few steps to the beach and...

We stayed at Arenas Del Mar for 6 nights with our family of 5 (children 13, 11 and 7). This was one of our best family vacations ever. The facilities and surrounding area are fabulous but what really put this over the top were the people. The staff are extremely warm, friendly, knowledgeable and always had our best interest at...

Beautiful location and very friendly staff just don't book the ground floor 'rainforest' view rooms - although the room itself was good the view was non existent - hugely disappointing after the amazing other rooms we'd been in Costa Rica. The manager wanted to help and moved us to suite 703a on our last night which was wonderful but the...
