we love this place. Get the ocean front suite where you can sit on your veranda or in the jacuzzi just steps from the beach. Staff is very friendly. The grounds are immaculate and in a wooded jungle like setting. Monkeys in the trees in the morning. Beach is beautiful and quiet. We will visit again.

In the week we were in Coco we were here three times! Once for lunch and twice for happy hour! Loved the setting! We toured one of the rooms and want to go back and stay at their property! The food was the best ever! Saw howler monkeys and watched them play. The sunset from the restaurant was one of the best! Would highly recommend this hotel!!!

Amazing location, truly ocean front, in one of the most beautiful beaches!
The rooms were spacious and beautiful beyond belief!
But the A/C and electricals did whatever they please and the maintenance people were less than motivated to fix it.
The front desk was only somewhat helpful. The waiters were low energy and the food was aweful compare to the small restaurant/shack that neighbors the hotel.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the ocean front, worth it!

The hotel and the rooms are great, but would you expect to wait more than two hours in front of the reception with the excuse, that your room is not evacuated yet? We arrived arround 11 in the morning and where tired from our trip. When we could checked in at arround 1pm, we realized, that several identical junior suites arround as where empty. The aircondition is that loud that you can't sleep well - switching it off doesn't help as you can hear then the aircon of your neibghour.
The restaurant is so far ok, but the website promise a bit to much with "international gourmet and semi gourmet style"
Fine if you travel by 4x4, this helps to take the bad road to the 3* hotel

I stayed here from 10/20-10/26/12. THe grounds were immacualte, the service top notch and pretty, natural surroundings. Hotel staff was very helpful and easy to communicate with for one such as I will limited Spanish. The hotel also has a transport service, for around $10 USD one way to Playa Coco and around $50 per person or so to Liberia. Restaurant and bar were very elegant and comfortable, a little pricey and definately catered to tourists and high end dining.

Room Tip: We got a garden side room and it was nice and peaceful, plus we could sit and watch the Howler Monke...

We didn't reach Playa Hermosa until 10pm Saturday night and had yet to have eaten anything but ice cubes, gratis our friends at United however, on arrival at Bosque Del Mar we were greeted with fruit smoothies, refreshing face towels and Esteban and Carlos who put in our afterhours dinner order then escorted us with our bags in tow to our 2nd story suite. After great presentation and instruction to the functionality of our room we returned to the dining area for our late night dinner. We could hear the waves crashing as we ate our Mahi Mahi and Red Snapper entrees. The next morning we were able to enjoy the torrential downpour from our Jacuzzi. As the rain ceased we saw dozens of monkeys swinging through the trees. We appreciated the hard work of the beach maintenance guy, he spent hours digging runoff ditches, raking leaves and fetching lounge chairs for guests. We give this place a good rating because we enjoyed the atmosphere, the customer service and location. We did not give it five stars because we thought the house keeping could have been more detailed (there was still sand on the counter and on the floor after each days' cleaning) and the food, although decent was not noteworthy.

Room Tip: 2nd floor ocean view deluxe suite is significantly better than the Jr. suite, which we got on our re...

This is by far the best gem in guanacaste. The chef has his own farm and raises real beef cattle not brahman. The beef and seafood dishes are great. The tenderloin with blackberry and coconut sauce is to die for. It is a little hard to find. It is at the secondary entrance and you have to park across the street. It has a very diverse and complete menu. The staff at the restaurant and hotel are very attentive.
