Wonderful Stay
We truly loved our stay at Bosque Del Mar in Playa Hermosa. The hotel is beautiful, and the proximity to Playa Hermosa beach is a game changer. For first time travelers to Costa Rica, this hotel had everything we could've asked for. Safe, quiet, and clean, with friendly staff who go the extra mile. This hotel is also conveniently located near many tourist attractions. We will definitely be booking another stay soon!

Boutique Hotel for Family Vacation
Our family had a wonderful stay. We were welcomed with delicious drinks and taken to our spacious suite. The restaurants were wonderful. We enjoyed dinner every night with Jonathan. Loved the location on the beach. The concierges were wonderful and made us feels so welcome, especially Roy. He was so friendly and helpful our entire trip. We can't wait to come back.

Jacuzzi in Ocean facing suite not working
I purposely booked the Ocean facing suite for the Jacuzzi. However, to our surprise, the jacuzzi did not work. We found out late into 10pm, and the staff attempted to fix the jacuzzi for us. However, it didn't work and we were offered to move into another Ocean facing room with a Jacuzzi but short of one queen size bed. Our family was disappointed. In addition the two televisions in our suite did not allow us to change the language - ended up only Spanish shows.

The properties grounds are beautiful. We arrived early and expected to wait to check in, but we ended up waiting a full hour later than check in time to get to our rooms. No VIP perks were offered or given. Staff was very friendly.

This was one of the most incredible hotels we have ever experienced. The staff was over the top kind and helpful. The resort is surrounded by the jungle allowing the monkeys, sloths, etc. to be seen and experienced from many locations on the property. We would go back in a minute and stay much longer.
