Ever seen the TV show 10 Years Younger?  We have and it’s inspired us!  As our 10th anniversary rapidly approaches, Arenas del Mar is undergoing a transformation in an attempt to turn back the clock and refresh our appearance.  Starting on 25th September, our Mirador Bar, reception area and pool will go “under the knife” for a total revamp, set to be completed in November just in time for our birthday celebrations.

Arenas del Mar has always worked hard to create the most memorable and personalized experiences for guests, but these exciting renovations will have the biggest positive impact yet.  “With just 45 days to complete everything, we’ve got a challenge on our hands, but the brand new infinity pool will be mind-blowing”, says Alfonso, the hotel’s General Manager.  Looking right out to the Pacific with Espadilla Beach and the National Park to the left (a landscape that’s already considered one of the 1000 Places to See Before you Die), “we’ll have the best view in Manuel Antonio” he proudly adds.

A lot of thought has gone into the new designs which are modern yet timeless, and also respectful of Arenas del Mar’s sustainable philosophy.  During the renovation, no trees will be cut down and there will be as little disturbance as possible to the natural surroundings.  Only native plants will be used in the landscaping too, which will ensure that the many animals that already frequently visit the Mirador and reception area will keep coming.

The animals will love the improvements
