I had a ground floor room in the center of the hotel.. The room was clean and comfortable with a lot of good hot water, but it was cold. The management said they do not have space heaters because it is an ecological lodge. So I slept in pants, socks and a fleece sweatshirt -- thankfully had a heating pad... More

There are plenty of reviews with the details, so I will just confirm that this is a quaint place to be experienced if you desire to be isolated in nature. The accommodations are reasonable (a bit like cabin living) and the natural resources are excellent. The owners are attentive and friendly.

Okay, so I have a lot to say, but I will try to give information I think would be helpful in deciding on, and planning a trip. We are a family of five (two adults, three kids age 16, 14, and 9). We decided to travel last minute over spring break, Mar 10-15. We stayed all five nights at Bosque... More

My wife and I were only able to stay at Bosque de Paz two nights but were extremely satisfied with everything. The staff were friendly, personable and most accomodating. The meals were five star.

This was my second visit to Bosque de Paz. It's still great. Beautiful grounds, beautiful spacious rooms, friendly, helpful staff, good food, loads of birds and other wildlife, a little river/stream, pretty plants and flowers. I love this place. Mmm, now I'm hungry, too, especially remembering the black bean soup. It does turn out, though, that if it rains hard... More

In the middle of nowhere and not signed from the main roads, Bosque de Paz is a small friendly hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very comfortable and spacious, and the hotel has several trails through the forest that surrounds it, as well an orchid trail which must be magnificent at the right time of year....

I stayed three nights. My primary reason for staying at Bosque de Paz was the birds, especially hummingbirds. I am an avid photographer. Photographing hummingbirds requires several flashes, tripods, etc. The staff, especially Mario (the father) and Oskar, was very helpful. It was quite cool and rainy during my stay. Perhaps small electric heaters could be made available to guests.

We spent our last three nights in Costa Rica at this wonderful lodge. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and surrounded by nature. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and the owner Frederico was very attentive and a dedicated conservationist who is doing a wonderful job preserving this little piece of paradise.

This eco-lodge is serene and comfortable. Meals were filling and flavorful and the staff were sensitive to our dietary needs. The owner-manager as well as all the staff we encountered were gracious and helpful. The grounds around the lodge are attractive and provided good wildlife-watching and birdwatching even before we started on walks into the cloud forest. I want to... More

A unique experience in Costa Rica. The hotel has 12 rooms in the middle of the rain forest. We stayed there for two nights. The hospitality of the staff (Mario and Daniel) was excellent.
