Just returned from stay at Arenas for 4 nights. Cannot disagree with last reviewer.
1) Very hilly, but golf carts work well to get to the two beaches, taxi drop off point. Road down from the main road to the drop pont is like craters of the moon....no way anyone can walk from the hotel to the main road (no sidewalks and narrow roads anyway). Taxis are essential, or hotel transport at about $10 each way..
2) lush tropical environs...white faced monkeys appear at breakfast time to entertain guests..occ. sloths and howlers around.
3) The best room by far is 703A. Request it if at all possible...perfect view, close to restaurant and golf carts. Lower rooms have no view and the rooms down by the small pool are way out of the way, views obstructed by trees
4) A/C in the bedroom only, not the lounge/living room, so quite muggy at night.. Multichannel cable TV and wireless work well.
5) Menu is good, food well prepeared. Not huge options, but with the limited guest count, understandable
6) Staff exceptionally friendly and eager to please, speak English well.
7) Arenas beach is expansive and very long, wide. No shelling, but warm tropical waters, smooth sand....not a whole lot of shade.

Overall, a nice stay, and better than Si Co Mo No and others in the area....you could do worse.
