    Relaxing Stay at Bosque Del Mar

    We had a wonderful stay at Bosque Del Mar! The hotel was right on the beach and had a beautiful natural setting. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. At night the hotel was very quiet and peaceful with the exception of the local Howler monkeys which was a nice surprise. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful ecological escape.

    Like sleeping in the trees!

    We booked two nights here at the tail end of a week stay in the area. The booking was VERY last minute as we changed our minds about staying at Dreams Las Mareas bc we didn't want to catch the sickness that's been going around there. We lost a bunch of money but were very happy with our decision. This hotel is beautiful... you feel tucked into the jungle while still being on the beach. We booked a 2nd floor dbl bed garden room. It was toward the back but still seemed in the centre of it all. The room had high ceilings, a little seating area with a mini fridge, great bathroom/lighting and our patio looked toward the pool. It felt like we were sleeping in the trees. Only downside to the room placement is the proximity to the road. It could be fairly loud with the motorbikes going by. The pool area is on the small side compared to some of the larger resorts but it was never crowded. It was always "dirty" but it was completely understandable bc it's surrounded by trees. It didn't bother us one bit. The beach was beautiful. 1 min walk from our room. Plenty of chairs- good mix of sun and shade. Of course there are people selling things but they're not bothersome and never pushy like in Mexico. Easy access to numerous excursions - horseback riding, ATV rental, boating. Service in the restaurant was so-so. We ate dinner in the upper bar area and our waiter seemed to be cranky but that didn't bother us. Breakfast was included in our rate and delicious.

    Enjoyed and will recommend

    Comfortable and spacious room. Well designed and decorated for a cozy feel. Campus is very easy to move about with the beach and town very close. Try Ginger restaurant in town for incredible Asian Fusion food.

    What a fabulous hidden gem in Playa Hermosa. I really didn’t want to tell a lot of people about this absolutely magnificent place. We were 75 feet from the beach with a perfect room overlooking the pool and hot tub. The food was outstanding as was the service. I have raised the bar once again for my wife’s birthday trips. For her birthday the chef fixed a special filet dinner with a surprise birthday cake. Outstanding. Pura Vida at it’s finest.

    The location, on a beautiful, well groomed beach, is perfect. The rooms are well-appointed and in perfect order. The staff is friendly and went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met. The kitchen staff even prepared us breakfast to go before regular kitchen hours. We ate both dinner and breakfast on site, and both were excellent. We’d spent the balance of our holiday, which was our wedding trip, on Playa Grande. We stayed at Bosque Del Mar to see another sliver of Costa Rica, and to bask in some luxuries out quaint beachfront cabin did not offer. It was absolutely the right place. I highly recommend Bosque Del Mar.
