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

We stayed here for two days in June 2014, at the end of our trip. It was a wonderful beach side boutique to relax after all the driving, and hiking we did in Manuel Antonio and Uvita. The resort is nicely laid out, with the pool in the center of the hotel. We stayed in a suite, where the beds... More

We've known James Hamilton ever since he opened Tilajari Resort and Country Club in Muelle, Costa Rica, and we were delighted when he opened his new hotel in Playa Hermosa. Both hotels reflect his dream to offer the best to his clients and the only complaint we have always had, was that we had to leave. Do yourselves a favor... More

We loved this hotel! The staff were wonderfully helpful and attentive (especially when we arrived in the middle of the night after a delayed flight), and the property itself was beautifully kept. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, and spacious. While we enjoyed the beautiful pool in the center of the property, we also loved the location right on the... More

Thank you staff of Bosque del Mar Hotel for our recent stay at your hotel. You made our Son and Daughter-In-Laws wedding a most memorable celebration we have ever experienced. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed and upon arriving we were greeted with cocktail drinks and help carrying our bags to our rooms. The rooms were very... More

Where do I start? This hotel is lovely. My family had an ocean front room and loved everything about it. Listening to the ocean at night is so relaxing. The sliding door to the outdoor patio does not have a screen so you can't sleep with the door open, but you can still hear the ocean. The room was clean... More

We recently spent a few nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had an oceanfront room and loved hearing the surf continually. One of the best things was having lounge chairs with cushions available for hotel guests in the shade under the trees (you could move to sun if you wanted) - lovely way to enjoy the beach without roasting....
