Great Stay
Great stay with friendly staff. We didn’t get everyone’s names but Roy (shuttle driver) and Jose (front desk) were especially helpful and friendly. Room was great, although we were surprised it required a bit of maintenance for the price. For example, the tub had a few marks (understandable for an outdoor tub) and a leak from our air conditioner had to be fixed one day.

I loved our stay at Bosque del Mar. Service was awesome. Anytime we needed anything, front desk was super informative and helpful. They even delivered an iron & ironing board to our doorstep when we requested it. Cleanliness was superior and we always had fresh sheets & towels. There is a nice fancy feel to the hotel as it is small a boutique-like, and even though we stayed at the Junior Suite, it felt expensive. Every room has a patio and sitting area to enjoy the views. The food was okay at their restaurant, but the mojitos were delicious. The location is great as we are near all the nice beaches we wanted to visit. Also, the hotel is at the end of a road which gives it a secluded feel. Monkeys came to visit our trees at about 6pm every evening we were there. Overall, this is a great hotel and I'd definitely recommend!

Beautiful hotel
A very pretty hotel right next to the beach. The hotel seemed empty although I was told they were over 70% full. They said this hotel and beach area never feels crowded. The staff was great and very friendly. One morning one of the guys maintaining the grounds calls us over to show us a monkey in the trees. On my last day he was explaining to me that there are three types of lizards (in Spanish) and only one is an iguana. With his expert eyes he starts spotting them all over the hotel grounds! The one drawback is this hotel / beach is so quiet. You can walk along the beach to get to some other restaurants. But otherwise you will have to take a tour, have a car, or take a taxi to get to other activities.

Highlight of the trip was cruise on the boat but poor visibility where we went. Area doesn't have much to offer in terms of great food.

great experience. Nice to easily go between the shaded pool with local iguanas and monkeys to the very nice beach just seconds away. Good for families.

Our family had an excellent stay at Hotel Bosque. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms were very comfortable but most importantly, the staff was great. They were extremely accommodating, warm and super friendly to our kids. They were so helpful in fact, that they even changed a flat tire for us as we were getting ready to depart. The one area that could be improved is poolside/beachside service. It would have been nice to have a waiter/waitress come around periodically and take some drink orders. But when I went to the restaurant and bar and asked them to deliver lunch to the pool, they were happy to do so. Overall, an excellent stay. We wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend this hotel to our friends.

Very Good 8.0
Great location as the beach is only steps away. Rooms were huge and clean, bed comfy (although pillows sucked). Pool was small but clean and provided a really nice location with wildlife all around the trees above. My biggest gripe is with the WiFi - I had better wifi at every single other location I stayed at during our trip, including the $30 airbnb we had. When you pay $200 a night for a hotel, you expect WiFi to work in the room. Happy hour was nice, but I would recommend getting beers because the mixed cocktails have about a drop of alcohol in them. Overall a nice location, but should be priced a bit less.

Great location for a great hotel
We toured this hotel the last time we were in Costa Rica and were impressed - We spend most of our time in this area so it made sense to stay here - We were not disappointed - The room was spacious and the shower as big as a room - Love being seconds from beach - Housekeeping great and staff super friendly - Only criticism is the free WiFi was weak - We WILL stay here again
