This is a place that can not be missed on your journey in Costa Rica. This is a Spanish Mansion converted in to a 5 room bed and breakfast. It is awesome! We were booked in the President's room on the 2nd floor. The décor, 20 foot high brick dome in our room, the spacious bathroom and private balcony overlooking...

We didn't end up getting into Jaco until after dark, and we had a terrible time finding this unique place, even with detailed directions. Fortunately we had the cell phone number of one of the staff (we had to call multiple times!) and she finally got us onto the right side road to take. (We're talking, not a great neighborhood,...

This place is enchanting! Secluded beautiful building with just five suites. These are suites, not a hotel. No restaurant or bar, just access to a well equipped kitchen, but cooking not allowed except microwaving. Small supermarket nearby for provisions. Bars and restaurants 3km away at coast. Beautiful gardens. Rooms are full of beautiful furniture. The whole place has class –...

The six of us only stayed here 1 night, and we wish it had been more. We got to look at 3 rooms, and they were all so beautiful. My husband and I stayed in the upstairs room with the round brick ceiling and balcony. I think this would be perfect for a very small wedding. The grounds and pool...

Stayed here for four nights and ended up booking an additional night on our way back through this area. Beautiful grounds, refreshing pool, staff is excellent & it's a quiet peaceful retreat. Very private and tucked in the forest but close to everything you might want to do. A true hidden gem!

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!
