The first class Arenas del Mar is a secluded beach resort close to Manuel Antonio with its sweep of golden sands and nearby jungle-stifled national park. Unusually, it appeals to both couples seeking a romantic and relaxing base on this stretch of the Pacific coast and families with children: there are convenient connecting rooms as well as a good range of facilities to keep youngsters occupied. It has a very welcoming atmosphere, and is not at all formal.
The hotel has two beach options within very easy reach. Security guards are stationed at the access points at both beaches and they also provide a beach service. Golf carts are available 24 hours a day to ferry guests around.
All the well equipped and spacious rooms have terraces overlooking the ocean or rainforest and an outdoor decking area. They are all furnished with kitchenette and minibar – suites have a lounge area too.
