Arenas Del Mar - Facts and Information

Children Policy

“Our routine of an adventure in the morning (planned by the hotel) and pool and beach time in the afternoon was just the right combination and the hotel was perfectly situated for this, being close to Rainforest waterfall hiking adventures, zip lining, Manuel Antonio National Park and surfing.”


Dock To Dish

Sustainable Seafood, Sourced Locally

At Arenas del Mar, we’re proud to be the first Costa Rican Resort to partner with the Dock to Dish Program. This means that we receive deliveries of freshly caught seafood from the fishermen right down the road. When you stay with us, we can promise that your seafood is always local — and always delicious. Catch of the Day is back!
