We LOVED Bosque Del Mar. The hotel is so close to the airport, it's in a quiet little suburb with a grocery store, souvenir shop and ATM within a 20-minute walk. Our room was absolutely lovely. Spotlessly clean, very large and comfortable. Pool was shady, but very well-kept. Restaurant food was consistently excellent (I've read reviews that say pricey, but...

Great hotel in Playa Hermosa. Second time staying here while in area. Ricardo upgraded my room from jr suite to Ocean front. What an awesome room. All staff friendly as before. I'd stay here again and again.

Left Arenal early due to strong winds and rain and got to Liberia before noon. With over 24 hours to departure we looked up how close we were to the beach. Only 30 minutes from the airport we decided to see if they had any availability and they did with early checkin. Sea side room with outdoor jacuzzi was just...

Great hotel if you are looking for a get away away from the large resorts and looking for a local experience. The staff was wonderful and very hospitable. They know their guest and who is staying in the hotel. We had some tours planned but they also helped arrange some local transportation and an excursion. Which was a highlight of...

Our room was extremely clean and plush. This was our first impression of Costa Rica and it couldnt have gone better. Everyone there was extremely welcoming and really tried to give us the best stay possible. Their buffet style breakfast was delicious. It was a mixture of Costa Rican and American. As you're eating your meal, your view is of...

The hotel has wonderful, comfortable rooms with beautiful decor and amenities. The Pacific Ocean is steps away. It's very peaceful to hear the ocean waves during the night. The restaurant was decent but pricey. The front desk staff was very helpful as well. Nice place.

We have stayed in this hotel twice now and both times we had a great experience. The rooms are very large, clean and quiet. Each has a refrigerator which we found very handy for making a few of our own breakfasts and lunches. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to help in any way they...

We spent two days at Bosque del Mar to relax before meeting up with family and friends for our wedding week. We selected a reservation that included a junior suite and two meals a day. The food was amazing, each dinner included an appetizer or first course, main course and dessert. The location was perfect. We were pleasantly surprised that...

A super friendly muti-lingual staff, dream location on the beach with the buildings set in and around ancient trees and a 25 minute $50 taxi ride to Liberia Airport make this the perfect arrival and departure hotel at Costa Rica. There is plenty of welcome shade on the beach and the small pool is also set in the lush tropical...
