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

I booked this hotel on a whim since I needed a stopping point between Liberia and Manuel Antonio since I'm traveling with my mom who hates long car rides... I wish had planned differently and were staying longer!! I've been to Costa Rica several times and spent a lot of time traveling throughout Central America and this hotel is one... More

We stayed at the Forest Hills Suites for several days. It is the most beautiful property set in lovely gardens, and a good pool. We took the three suites on the ground floor of the building. The furnishings are very attractive, as is the very classy, understated decor. It was like being in a private home. The manageress is efficient... 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. Located in a remote section of a tropical rainforest near Herradura Beach and... More

We stayed one night with a group of six, including our 3 children. This hotel is a bit hard to find, but it is worth it. The house is more gorgeous in person than even those pictures show. The grounds are lovely and filled with plants. The pool is small, but wonderful with blue tiles and a waterfall feature. Our... More

We stayed back in April for 5 nights. Erica was super friendly, and helpful.

1. Make sure you have an up-to-date gps if you're trying to get to the Suites ... or you'll never get there! It's almost impossible to locate ... no signs or anything. 2.

Everyone at this place is so kind and helpful. Honestly, having Sheyla to help us plan and reserve with our activities MADE THE TRIP for us. At one point, our rental car broke down and we called Sheyla in desperation to rescue us from the side of the highway. And Erik (security guard) went out of his way to help... More
