First of all, I have a confession...we booked Forest Hills as a stop off to break up our journey from Arenal to the South of Costa Rica. So we had relatively low expectations, more of just a place to lay our heads and have a break from driving. Little did we know, that it would become a highlight of our... More

Our family went with two other families for a week. All of us (12) had a wonderful time. Erika and the staff helped us with whatever we needed. The house is beautiful with plenty of room. We spent the first two days just relaxing in the pool and it was amazing! Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I took a quick 5 day trip to Costa Rica. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Forest Hill suites or "Casa Grande" as the locals call it. It was very clean, intimate, laid back and in a relaxing, quiet location but still a quick drive to town. We would definitely come back!

It's a lovely mansion designed by some architect 15 years ago. the owner decides to share this true Costa Rican experience with travellers from around the world. This mansion has 5 bedrooms in total and a beautiful garden that has probably more wild life than you could have seen at Monteverde ( quit mediocre from my point of view). The... More

We stopped to the Forest Hills and Suite hotel on our trip from San Jose to Manuel Antonio. This hotel is within 5 minutes from Herradura Beach and a 10 minutes drive from Jaco. We had the Presidential suite, it was just perfect. The most comfortable bed of our trip to Costa Rica. Breakfast is simple but good. You can... More

I almost hate to share this secret, but since I cannot stay there every night, I guess I will. This place is beautiful, the hotel, rooms, grounds and staff are amazing. The location is hidden and perfect. We were visiting our son in Los Suenos and it was 5" away. I consider it one of my greatest finds. My husband... More

This estate is built only ten years ago by an architect who wanted to give it the athmosphere of 200 years ago. He succeeded. So if you discover the place the domain can be yours.There are just a few rooms and you can sit everywhere, inside, on the veranda, near the swimming-pool. The breakfast is really continental. However, you can... More
