planning costa rica trip

My wife and I will be traveling with another couple to Costa Rica in Feb. We would like to get a private driver to take us from the airport to Arenal. We will stay in Arenal 2 nights and then be driven to Manuel Antonio where we will stay the rest of the time. Since we are flying for free using awards, money is not a limiting factor for hotels. I need recommendations where to stay in Arenal and Manuel Antonio (5 star hotels) and where I can get a private driver. Also we will need to stay in a San Jose hotel for 1 night.

In Manuel Antonio also check out El Parador.
I would recommend that you stay outside of San Jose for your first (last) night. We really liked Xandari (

I forgot to add that once you decide on hotels you can ask those hotels to arrange transportation for you. Most work regularly with private drivers and will be happy to make the arrangements for you.
