A colleague and I spent 3 nights in this lovely property. At the time we were the only guests at Forest Hill Suites so we had all the facilities for just the two of us. The property is in the middle of a tropical rainforest and the service is excellent. Erika really goes out of her way to cater for... More

I researched dozens of hotels for our trip to Costa Rica for a wedding. We stayed February 12-19, 2015. Forest Hills Suites is on a secluded road, which we loved and they have five suites, making it very restful and quiet. We were very impressed with the furnishings and the way the building and grounds were kept. Erika our Concierge... More

A friend of ours was getting married in Herradura so we only stayed 1 night in this place. Even though i couldn't experience much of what it can offer, I can say for sure that this will not be the last time I book with Forest Hills Suites.

This is a wonderful property. The rooms and property are immaculate. Erica was great, she went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. If you want a unique place to stay while in Jaco then this is it. Kent

We stayed here for two nights. We were welcomed immediately upon arrival and checkin was fast and smooth. Erika had a great knowledge of things to do in Jaco and the surrounding areas and was able to provide us with a list of activities to fill in the gaps of our itinerary. She definitely made our trip even better! The... More

The locals like to greet you with that phrase: Pura Vida. Translated literally it means "pure life". But the concept of Pura Vida gets lost with a literal translation because it really is a way of life. This Hotel will show you what Pura Vida really means.
