Perfect location. However the restaurant is overpriced for evenings, so go out nearly, lots of choice but we liked Cafe del Mar which is on the beach to the left. Wifi in rooms. Toilet paper to go in bins :(

The hotel is located about 300 meters from Manual Antonio National Park and about 500 meters from the beach. The hotel has breakfast included and the restaurant food is very tasty.

Hotel Villabosque really grew on me in the 2 nights I stayed. When I first entered the room (room 12) I was less than impressed at the small room that seemed to be from decades ago.

Came across this hotel with a friend of mine over the Summer of 2014. The rooms were very clean and there was a great breakfast in the morning to wake up to! The highlight of the hotel was definitely the customer service. They were so welcoming and accommodating, helped make for a great experience at the Villa Bosque Hotel!

We moved to this hotel after a bad experience at another hotel, based on eating at the restaurant a few times. The hotel was very clean and had very friendly and helpful staff. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, and the rooms were equipped with good air con to help cool down in the often humid climate.
