Even though the hotel has been closed, the grounds are still impeccably kept up with manicured lawns and tropical blooming plants about. The pool is clean and the pool area spotless and inviting. The bar offers cold beer. This place suited our group of six perfectly - two wanted to go on the zip line, three wanted to hike, and... More

I was all set to leave for my vacation to Costa Rica and thought I would just call to re-confirm my hotels before I left since I had learned this was a good idea from past experiences. I called La Foresta a few days before my departure from the U.S and was told by someone that answered the phone for... More

La Foresta was a great spot to have it all. Access to Quepos, Maneuel Antonio National Park, wildlife, zip lining, and trails on the property. Food was great and lots of variety, staff were pleasant and helpful. The pool although somewhat small was a really nice trip after being out for the day. Loved the squirrel monkeys and the army...

We were fortunate enough to find this little slice of heaven in Quepos for our wedding, vacation and honeymoon. How did I get so lucky, I must be living right! The location, service, food and the STAFF were absolutely amazing. The rate included breakfast which was great with plenty of wonderful options. There is so much to do on the... More

My niece was married on the grounds of La Foresta and the ambiance was serene and breath-taking. The staff was very accommodating, amiable and well trained. All planning was made by the staff in a timely manner for the different and varied tours and rides that included transportation. There was never a time to just be lounging at the hotel... More

Just back from a fantastic voyage in Costa Rica made all the more enjoyable by La Foresta Nature Resort. Attended best friend's wedding and could not be more pleased with the fantastic accommodations. Breakfast every morning with titi monkeys, toucans, and iguanas within eyesight. My room was spacious, clean, air-conditioned, equipped with cable TV and refrigerator. The food at Los... More

Went for BFF's wedding, awesome hiking trails and ziplines on property! Beautiful wildlife, great service. Easy access to town and Manuel Antonio. ATV tour to The Rainmaker was like nothing I have ever experienced. Night time zipline was great, always felt safe. Great place to bring kids! Wonderful breakfast and dinners! We cannot wait to come back! Thank you.

This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. The location makes it very convenient. Service upon check in and at the restaurant was excellent. Enjoyed the pool and hiking trails. Hammock outside the room and chairs on the patio made it very relaxing to sit outside and enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings.

Good hotel, the rooms are spacious, nothing fancy but Ok. The food was average. Manuel Antonio beaches are great, we spent a lot of time there so we didn't even use the hotel's pool. I will recommend this as Ok.
