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

Thank you so much for your kind review! Like you, many of our guests decide to book a second trip at our hotel just to relax at the blue tiled pool and enjoy the ambiance. It would be a great pleasure to host you again some time. Please let us know if you're ever in the area! More

We stayed back in April for 5 nights. Erica was super friendly, and helpful. On our first night she informed us of a surfing competition down the road in Hermosa, and also helped us with great local restaurant recommendations! The room was SO big, and the bathroom was just as big! The pool was wonderful, and one night of our... More

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. Erica was AMAZING. :) We arrived really late on a Monday night and we couldn't find the hotel, so she drove out to meet us where we... More

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

Super friendly staff really went overboard for us. At my request they put an extra bed in the room for our son. And it was a real bed not just a fold away. So my son was able to sleep well. Also allowed us to check in early and check out late! And when my wife ask if the gardener... More

Unbelievable find just minutes from beautiful Herradura beach and wonderful harbor! Well off the beaten path in a Quiet neighborhood. Our suite had a brick dome over an amazingly comfortable king bed, a luxurious jet tub with shower, a walk in closet, and beautiful balcony! All this and the price was unbelievable! Don't think twice about booking Forest hills suites!

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
