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

You can do a lot worse than Bosque del Mar. It's backyard is a beautiful picturesque bay perfect for kayaking and other water sports. Not a lot around it in terms of fun. Playa Coco is about 25 minutes away, it has a lot of nice restaurants and some nightlife. It resembles Front Street in Lahaina. The only negative about... More

It's the nicest hotel on the beach, shaded with trees. The other hotels right on the beach kind of look like shacks. Great service! There is bar on the second floor overlooking the beach. Bathroom in the room was great, and they upgraded us for free. There was also a howler monkey on the property that would wake us each... More

Having benefited from 18 years of marriage to a Costa Rican national, I've had the pleasure of staying at hotels of all sizes and price ranges, including all-inclusive resorts, up and down both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. None can match Bosque del Mar Hotel when one factors in all of the things one would look for in a place... More

Whether you want a base for adventures or secluded wind-down time on a nice beach Basque del Mar is a great place to stay. The hotel is so close to the ocean that the surf can be heard from every room. I would recommend the modest upcharge for the ocean front rooms to add the view, although the other rooms... More

Bosque del Mar is a superb hotel in every way: fab location RIGHT ON the beach in lovely Playa Hermosa; courteous and helpful staff; rooms luxuriously appointed & spotlessly clean; a great value for the price. This is an excellent and well run hotel! I have stayed at Bosque del Mar many, many times and have never been disappointed in... More
