Great hotel at a small non touristic beach ideal to relax under the palm trees. The rooms are very big and includes two tv's, living room, large bedroom and luxury shower.We enjoyed a great massage at the beach and great meals were served in the hotels restaurant.

We love this hotel, we really do!! the location, the rooms, the pool, the quiteness but the food is unbelivably bad!! it's too bad because it really ruins the experience. Other than that, I would recommend it but you better make dinner and breakfast reservations somewhere else. The service needs to improve as well! DO try the massages on the... More

After 5 weeks of touring Costa Rica and staying on budget to mid ranbge hotels this was our taste of coastal luxury before heading back to San Jose. Well worth hunting out this hotel is ideal for a short beach break with most of what you need available onsite or along the beach. Troops of monkeys roam the trees in... More

This hotel is truly a gem - very beachfront; literally steps away from Playa Hermosa's gentle lazy waves, set in amazing tropical gardens, complete with giant Guanacaste trees, monkeys playing above and excellent, attentive service throughout your entire stay. Staying at Bosque del Mar will be a most memorable experience for sure. However, the reason for 4 stars and not... More

We hosted our wedding at Bosque del Mar in August of 2014, and couldn't have been happier. We had visited the hotel several times before and had fallen in love with the set up of the hotel; however, during our wedding weekend, both the hotel and its staff more than surpassed our expectations. The rooms are gorgeous and the setup... More

My husband and I travel to Costa Rica every year. We stay here every time and never is there a disappointment. The beach are steps away and the waves are perfect due to the surrounding jungle. Great place to stay for fishing, snorkeling or just relaxing. Our room we reserve has an ocean view. The scenery is a beautiful site... More

If big waves are not your cup of tea, the beach at this hotel is the ticket. It is a long and wide beach with little waves. Great for kids and/or soaking. The hotel is right on the sand and has showers to wash off or rinse your feet. The open restaurant and reception area is what you think when... More

We were there 8 days and it was great. Playa Hermosa is a big beach and away from the crowds in playa coco. There are about 8-10 restaurants within walking distance. The beach is fantastic. Soft sand and small waves. We were there in their rainy season which meant from about 1-4 you had rain. They have masseuses on the... More
