Great location --- right on the beach, but with nice shading. Playa Hermosa is a quiet, secluded beach. Staff was always very friendly. Room was extremely clean, new, fresh.

Review of Hotel Bosque del Mar Playa Hermosa

great hotel on beach
We had a marvelous vacation at the Bosque del mar. It is so refreshing to stay at a hotel (especially outside the states) that is exactly as advertised. The room was high end with a gorgeous bathroom. Our second floor room (#601) had a king bed
and balcony with view of the sunset (ask for an ocean front if you can get it – worth the price). The staff throughout was very attentive and pleasant. We ate at the hotel several times for all three meals and found the food was very good and reasonable – We especially recommend the shrimp. We took two trips thru the hotel - sunset cruise (a good deal at $75 / person) and a 5 hours trip (including a 2 ½ hour boat ride thru the park and a lovely local lunch afterwards) to the Palo Verde Park (at $ 110 its not cheap, but well worth seeing the breath of birds, monkeys and crocs – a 14 footer cruised within one foot of our boat!) We ate dinner one night up the street (less than 5 minutes) at the Villa Del Sueno restaurant / hotel. It was more expensive than the Bosque and comparable in quality. A few things you must do if your visit: first, go to a local restaurant called Ginger’s. Do not miss going there, we went twice. Directions: walk down the beach and just past Agua Sports cut up the street. Walk about ¼ mile and you come to the main road – Ginger’s is across the street. There are many locals walking the beach who will take you out on a boat. Based on internet reviews we sought out “Aldofo” who was hanging close to our hotel. He took us on the best snorkeling trip of our life. He is an amazing guide and took us to two different sites, both teeming with fish. We convinced a family of 10 to try him, and they went out on two different days. We did not make it to the volcano or other parks; it was too nice lying on the beach. Next time, we’ll plan to stay at a hotel closer to the natural parks for a few days and then spend the remainder back at the Bosque del mar.
