Luxury hotel placed right on the beach. I have room with jacuzzi on the terrace, big and airy room, which was perfectly designed. Perfect service, clean room and don't forget to have massage on the beach. One minus - hotel is quite expensive

It is surrounded by lush tropical plants and trees populated by a fantastic array of different tropical birds, lizards, and visiting howler monkeys. There is an open air restaurant and bar as well as beautiful pool with waterfall and hot tub. We... More

We ended our week-long stay in Costa Rica with a few days are this remarkable hotel. Located on the beautiful, small & isolated Playa Hermosa, the layout and architecture of the hotel is spectacular-- the buildings are open, integrated with the large trees of the site. This medium-sized hotel has the feel and service quality of a much larger, more... More

We ended our vacation here for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The balconies were fabulous, just sitting and listening to the birds and Howler Monkeys. The pool was adequate with a relaxing waterfall. We had a pool-side room but could still hear the surf both night and day. It is located on... More

The wife and I stayed here 2 nights and thought the location was great on the bay with warm water and great views. The room was small with very uncomfortable beds and pillows. We overlooked the pool which was great with the howler monkeys and the iguanas. The beach was clean. The food at the hotel was great and very... More

I have just been back home for a couple of days after spending a week in Costa Rica and 2 & 1/2 days at Bosque del Mar. We had an excellent and relaxing time both in Costa Rica and at Bosque del Mar. There is an uncrowded pleasant beach with shade close. Guillermo and the rest of the staff at... More

This was the third and final leg of our first trip to Costa Rica. The Guanacaste area is very nice with broad beaches, great people and food. The hotel is one of the better ones in the area and is well kept and maintained. We stayed for four days in one of the suites, so we had opportunity to see... More

We started and ended a 10 day trip to Costa Rica (our first) on the Pacific coast at a beach. This was the start (we ended at a vast and vastly different place, the JW Marriott/Guanacaste), and it was quite pleasant. Staff are friendly, and the rooms are more like mini-suites -- bedroom and bath, and a smaller sitting room... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at this hotel with our 1 yr old daughter. We had a wonderful time, enjoying a nice, clean beach, rooms and common spaces surrounded by trees, which not only provide a fresh shade, but also provide housing for monkeys, iguanas and lots of different birds. The place is great, the staff was really... More
