    Stunning! Amazing!

    Arenas del Mar - is the most unique and special place to get married and to also spend your honeymoon all in one! Our Event Coordinator - Elaine Solano was brilliant, from start to finish. She and all the hotel staff, organised everything just exactly how we wanted, with the best service we have truly ever experienced. This is a great example of how smooth, easy and stress-free a wedding can be. Elaine recommended us also an excellent photographer and a great lawyer for the ceremony. She even managed to sow the wedding dress last minute with great skill! :-) If you are looking to get married in Costa Rica- just go for it - you will have an amazing time there!

    Our Dream Came True

    We very much enjoyed working with Elaine at Arenas del Mar to plan our wedding. She was the most responsive of anyone we contacted in the area and was thorough to answer every question. She graciously hosted us for visits to the site before our wedding day and made us feel welcome and listened to. She did her best to personalize our plans to look like what we wanted. The florist she recommended was a joy to work with as well. The setup was gorgeous! The only hiccup we had in the day was the serving of dinner. Guests' orders got mixed up and the presentation of the food was not the best, but overall we are still VERY pleased with our wedding day and recommend it as a dream wedding destination. Thank you for everything, Elaine!

    Concierge service on steroids

    My husband and I can’t wait to go back to Arenas Del Mar. They have an exquisite property, so many options for your beautiful day. Truly exceptional food and stay. They made my day even better than I could ever have imagined.

    Dream wedding in Costa Rica





    Can a wedding be perfect? Can wedding planning be stress free?

    My answer is yes to both, and the person I give credit to is Elaine Solano, an event planner at the Arenas Del Mar in heavenly Costa Rica.

    The seemingly daunting task of destination wedding planning at a place none of my family had ever been before became pleasant and fun because of Elaine. From the very first contact Elaine demonstrated her confidence and competence, along with calm assurance. She made a wide range of vendors-florists, photographers, DJs available to us, and if we wanted someone/something different, she kept on looking until she found the perfect choice. Every single request, however small or difficult was met with prompt response.

    The wedding was at the tail end of the rainy season and Elaine had backup plans in case of rain. We were lucky to have the best weather that day, but it was nice to have a peace of mind.

    What a delight it was when the ceremony started right on schedule!

    The flowers, arch, table decorations, and every single detail was impeccable and the wedding party along with all the guests was in awe! The food was delicious and drinks were fantastic. The servers were superb and very attentive.

    Elaine supervised the whole event and made sure everyone was happy. Every single guest told us it was the best wedding they have ever attended.

    I am very grateful to Elaine and the Arenas Del Mar team for creating such a memorable wedding. My daughter and I highly recommend having a wedding at the stunning Arenas Del Mar!
