The inn itself is very beautiful. The beds are comfortable, a/c to cool down the rooms. The inn is located in a run-down neighborhood. The barking dogs next door could be hear each morning. It would have been a better experience if we had a car. There is not much to walk to, and it was a pain to get... More

Forest Hills hotel made our honeymoon so incredible! Erika is the concierge/manager and she will set you up with everything you want and need. Speaks very good English with a warming personality! Very trustworthy. She scheduled all of our adventures which made life so much easier while we were there.

This place is amazing, especially given the reasonable price. The house and grounds were built to the highest standards. We stayed in the master bedroom and loved everything about it. From the domed ceiling to the art collection everything was perfect. We wish we had reserved more time there. It was tough to find at first. There is no signage.... More

It was like having our own gorgeous Costa Rican mansion. The pool was perfect for the kids/adults. The beds we're comfortable, clean, and the grounds provided a great opportunity to bird-watch. Keep your eyes peeled for macaws, tucans and iguanas.

My 22-year-old daughter and I stayed at Forest Hills Suites for three nights. The house and grounds were spectacular, exactly like the photos. There was a lovely swimming pool, open 24/7, a large central kitchen shared by all, and lovely, air-conditioned rooms with huge marble showers. The manager of the FHS is an exceptionally delightful woman named Erica, who is... More

After two weeks in Costa Rica, we had our best sleep in Forest Hills. The property, common spaces and rooms are absolutely beautiful and incredibly comfortable. To be honest, the bed was a little too comfortable - it was hard to leave! A little off the beaten trail, Forest Hills is peaceful and private and yet still close to the... More

Located at a good "in between point" for my fiance and I traveling between Arenal Volcano and the Pacific National Park, Manuel Antonio, Forest Hills Suites fit the bill.

We were looking for a decent and quiet place along the central coast as a base for tours, along with something economical. We had been in Jaco many times, but only wanted comfort and accessibility, not walking access to the beach. We read the reviews and knew there had to be something to it, but could not understand why this... More

This was our first time renting a villa. I always choose luxury hotels and was nervous about a villa. It is beautiful. There is a maid and for an astronomical fee you can hire a chef.
