Stayed 6 nights in room 601, ocean front top floor (2nd floor) end unit furthest from restaurant. Best room in the house in my opinion. Quiet, except for the howler monkeys at 6am each morning. You don't get that in New Jersey! Room was enormous, bed was huge, AC was cold, large flat screen tv in bedroom and another in... More

We ended a fantastic walking holiday at this hotel- staying just 2 nights. The location and facilities in the hotel are excellent. Our room was spacious with excellent seating for reading and relaxing. It was also located close to the restaurant and the sea and was surprisingly quiet. We did not use the hotel pool but chose to swim in... More

For the money we paid we expected more of this hotel. The rooms although with a separate sitting area were fairly small. The AC in our room was hardly working. When asked for an additional rollaway bed for our party of 3 we were told that the beds are available but currently all are taken. We expected full availability from... More

Three nights was all we could spend at Playa Hermosa, but we will definitely try to return. When we get back there, we will again choose the Bosque del Mar. The room was spacious and quiet, well quiet until about 5:30 AM when the howler monkeys began their chorus. The pool delightful, the beach absolutely perfect, the staff friendly and... More

Nice location, avoid buildings with rooms next to main road due to excessive noise from cars, people and back of house of the hotel, unless you like to be up by 6am or be unable to sleep due to a nearby loudly bar. Stayed one night (Feb 21-2015) electricity went out on all area, so no A/C on rooms as... More

This is a beautiful hotel on the best beach front spot in Playa Hermosa. Very nice upscale room with palm trees to shade you on the beach. Great place to swim. We had a nice snorkel trip and say humpback whales. The restaurant and bar do not come close to matching the luxury of the rooms. We thought the food... More

Being waited on at the end of a very busy and energetic holiday was wonderful. Our spacious rooms with extra sitting room were quiet, comfortable and well appointed. Beach, restaurant, pool all so close. Staff friendly and accommodating. The food interesting. Beach close, with massage under the shade of trees with the sound of the sea, long circular and not...

This was the third, and last, hotel we stayed at during our two week visit to Costa Rica. We chose it because of its proximity to the Liberia airport but it turned out to be so much more than we expected. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay for longer. I wish we had stayed here instead of the... More

This was an unplanned side trip on our Costa Rican vacation, and we are so glad we made the effort to get here! The hotel is beautiful, right on the beach. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. We are a family of four, with teenagers. We were comfortable in the room, mostly, we stayed on the beach. The meals were... More

My first meal in the area was a lunch treated by my local friend. I live where fresh fish is abundant and the best deal in restaurants. I was impressed by the selection here of local fresh fish and the prices relative to what I am used to, $12-14 for dinner portion of fish, finger potatoes and roasted vegetables was... More
