This was our first stop in CR. On the first night, we're lying in bed, and begin to hear sounds coming from above - scurrying and scratching. Since we were on the top floor, we figured out that it was monkeys! They didn't stay too long on our roof, but the next morning, we saw them in the trees. Welcome... More

Friendly, Fun Staff that make you feel right at home and truly embody Pura Vida... One of my favorite things was that housekeeping constantly made different formations with towels throughout the rooms.. The Hotel is clean, comfortable and right on the beach though in a more remote part of Playa Hermosa.. Between the waves crashing and the howler monkeys, you... More

Staying at this hotel is like staying at a spa without the spa treatments( though these services are available there). The hotel is located in a more rural part of the country, it is a very quiet, tranquil setting. The rooms are spacious, clean; it is well managed with very attentive staff. The beach is just steps away from each... More

My husband and I stayed in a junior suite as part of a large group visiting for a wedding held at the hotel. We had a great stay. Our suite overlooking pool area (2nd floor) was clean and spacious for two people. We loved the in-room coffee pot (Hotel generously gave us more upon request) and our small balcony. We... More

The hotel is absolutely stunningly beautiful and the rooms are spacious and very cool. Our room had blackout curtains available via remote control and our own hot tub on the deck. It was lovely to fall asleep each night listening to the Pacific from right outside our room as it was on the beach. We had requested a king size... More

We found this hotel by accident when searching for a place near Liberia airport after San Jose was closed down. It was lovely nestled in the trees right on the beach. It was lovely and quite.The staff were very friendly, courteous and spoke English too. The restaurant food was good and not over priced. The beach is quiet and peaceful.... More

We had a wonderful experience at this lovely hotel and place. The welcoming passion fruit juice se the perfect tone for the check-in. The wonderful architecture incorporates the grand tree in the center, the open air all around, the beautiful and well-kept gardens, all are a feast to the eyes. Staff are all extremely helpful, friendly and nice, from reception... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Bosque del Mar. I had stayed here with my family about 6 years ago and returned with my boyfriend last week - the place was great to begin with and has only gotten better. The staff is extremely helpful and attentive. One day when we were low on cash, the concierge even drove us... More

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
