Guest Testimonial

.Melissa is a first-rate Travel Consultant, and the relationship and trust that she has built with us is truly cherished.

- GF, Bedfordshire

Arenas Del Mar is an extraordinary beachfront resort situated on the beaches of Manuel Antonio. The hotel has impeccable eco-credentials, having been designed to deliver an ambitious combination of deluxe accommodation and the highest level of certified sustainability.

The suites and villas are simply wonderful. Inside, they are generous slices of sleek luxury, where cool, tiled floors combine with neutral décor, fabulously individual furniture and an abundance of design touches. The private terraces are a real highlight. Secluded and stylish, they offer astonishing views, whilst mosaic tiles, soaring ceilings and hot tubs make them feel impossibly grand.
