This was our second visit to Arenas Del Mar and it was even better than the first! We never wanted to leave.
The hotel has the perfect location sitting in the edge of the rain forest with expansive views over the ocean. We were delighted by the monkeys, iguanas and even a sloth right outside of our room! The private beach is superb for swimming and lunching.(best nachos ever!)
Rooms are super comfortable. The staff is over-the-top friendly and helpful. Some of the nicest people we have ever met anywhere.
A highlight was a private dinner on the beach for our 20th anniversary. The table was lit with multiple candles and surrounded by torches and decorated with red flowers. The single most romantic dining experience we have ever had. Imagine sitting on the beach and hearing the waves crashing just feet away while sipping wine and eating a fantastic dinner.
