5 THINGS YOUR HOTEL SHOULD HAVE
Manuel Antonio is the perfect location for your Costa Rican vacation. With pristine beaches and the national park within walking distance of many hotels, it’s a popular destination for adventure-seeking travelers.
With several hotels in the Manuel Antonio area, it’s important for travelers to have a checklist of the accommodations they require for the vacation of their dreams. We’ve listed out what we feel are the top five things our guests look for when booking their hotel.
MANUEL ANTONIO HOTELS: ACCOMMODATION CHECKLIST
1. BEACH ACCESS
Manuel Antonio is lined with a beautiful beach—so who would want to be that close to the ocean and not be able to easily access it?
Not all Manuel Antonio hotels have direct beach access. Due to the landscape of the country, some hotels may offer views to die for, but they may come at the cost of no beach access. Arenas del Mar has two beach access points—one to our semi-private La Playitas beach, and the other to the public beach. And once on the public beach, it’s just a short walk along the water to get into town, offering even more opportunities to explore and enjoy the culture and cuisine.
We believe if you’re staying in the rainforest, it should feel like it! Make sure your hotel is not only in Manuel Antonio, but built within the nature!
Whether you’re an avid bird watcher, or you simply want to snap a photo of a sloth or howler monkey, it’s easy to do at Arenas del Mar. Our property is was built around the nature, as to not disturb the wonderful ecosystem that we cherish. A simple walk from your room to the restaurant along gives the opportunity to observe the beauty of the nature surrounding you.
3. A VIEW
If you’re staying in a beautiful place like Manuel Antonio, you want to be able to enjoy the view at all times—especially at the very beginning and end of your day.
Every room at Arenas del Mar has a view. Whether it’s overlooking the ocean, or serving as your “window” to the rainforest, our guests can walk onto their balcony and enjoy a view that they’ll remember for years to come.
4. DELICIOUS FOOD
It can sometimes be difficult to find a hotel that has immerses you in local culture, while also offering food options you will enjoy.
Arenas del Mar’s cuisine uses locally-sourced ingredients, creating a menu that not only speaks to Costa Rican culture, but is a delight to your taste buds (and has several gluten-free options!). As one of the many things that gets guests to return to the hotel for multiple trips, our two restaurants, El Mirador and La Playitas, offer everything your heart—and stomach—could desire.
One of the most important things about taking a vacation is nourishing your body. Arenas del Mar places a strong importance on health and wellness. With group exercise classes available every morning (including yoga on the beach!), and Las Brisas Wellness Center, our full-service spa, there’s no excuse not to start your day rejuvenated!
