SEE VACATIONS INCLUDING Arenas del Mar Beach & Nature Resort

Arenas del Mar is a beach and nature resort with 38 upscale rooms and suites, offering a casual beach front café and an elegant dining facility with views of Manuel Antonio National Park. There are two swimming pools, a small spa, and a gift shop as well as nature trails leading to two beaches. All rooms equipped with cable TV, ceiling fans, air conditioning, Internet, mini-bar, safe deposit box, coffee maker, microwave and iron.

Arenas del Mar is located next to Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. “Unique and spectacular beach and nature experiences combined with highest levels of comfort and sustainability in a local Costa Rican setting” define the concept of this resort.

Arenas del Mar caters to tourists that are looking for more than just another high-end resort experience. The resort offers a luxurious lodging experience in harmony with nature in a spectacular beach and rainforest setting. Guest rooms, apartments and suites offer spectacular ocean views, fine dining in two hotel restaurants with a focus on fresh local products and personalized service that exceeds guest expectations.

Arenas del Mar is the perfect base to explore the area around Manuel Antonio and Quepos on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Tours and activities offered in the area include white water rafting, mangrove kayak and boat tours, guided rainforest hikes, ocean kayaking, catch and release sport fishing, canopy tours and horseback riding excursions.

Sustainability is a key component of the concept at all levels of the operation and the Certification for Sustainable Tourism—a program designed by the Costa Rican Tourism ministry—serves as a guide for the building and operation of the hotel. Arenas del Mar sets out to minimize the impact on the surrounding nature, while maximizing the positive economic impact on the local community through employment.

Other resort facilities include a small spa located below the main restaurant with breathtaking views of Manuel Antonio National Park and the Pacific Ocean, a gift shop featuring local art and souvenirs and a state of the art business center near the hotel lobby.
