Two couples traveled to this resort in late Feb 2015. The resort was suggested to us by someone we did not know well, and it turned out to be the highlight of our two weeks in Costa Rica. The grounds and cabinas were beautiful. There was wild life all around, monkeys, macaws and birds of every description. While not avid hikers or bird watchers there was plenty to keep us interested and we found it to be one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had anywhere. The food was wonderful, and the resort employees went out of their way to make certain our every need, or whim (!) was satisfied. It was lovely.

Room Tip: We had one of the deluxe cabinas, and it was very private, mostly due to the distance from other rooms.

One of the greatest vacations of my life. Bosque was exceptional- exceeded expectations in terms of access to the forest, nature and wildlife. What I did not expect was how incredibly personal and family friendly the hotel is. My seven year old daughter loved running around and exploring the grounds. The food at the hotel was delicious and they even had a special children's buffet for the kids. This is not an anonymous chain hotel- though the resources are certainly comprabable. The owners, Phil and Kim, joined the guests every night for dinner and really helped encourage a a nice group dynamic. The cabins are first class- I missed having AC but ultimately am glad we didn't have it since I really felt connected to the environment at all times. Special highlights included the expert nature walk with their guide, Phil, who was wonderful. Horseback riding down a nearby beach..taking my daughter zip lining...and having to wait twenty minutes to get to my cabin because the monkeys decided to camp out on the suspension bridge walk-way across the river. What a remarkable visit. Certainly and without question the highlight of our time in Costa Rica.

Room Tip: The "garden room" open to the rainforest and set apart from the rest of the hotel...maybe not for everyone but truly memorable and a personal highlight.

Can't say enough about this wonderful place and I agree with all the other positive reviews. We stayed 5 nights in the lovely Manglillo cabina, which overlooks the point between the Pacific and the Gulfo Dulce. We had macaws overhead daily as well as occasional toucans and howler monkeys outside our door and saw so many other animals on hikes. Our teenaged kids stayed in a loft which did remain pretty warm at night but we got an extra fan which helped. The setting is unbeatable but so are all of the people. All of the staff goes out of their way to be friendly and accommodating, and it was hard to say good bye at the end of our visit. We did many of the activities both on and off of the property and enjoyed them all. If you are going for the first time, I do recommend reading the FAQs on the website and then the book in the room. They answer many questions you may have. Bosque del Cabo is a paradise and we hope to be back!

We loved our accommodations and the cuisine at Bosque del Cabo but what really sets this lodge apart is the abundance and diversity of wildlife--virtually right on your doorstep. The trails on the property are well-maintained and teeming with wildlife. While at Bosque, we saw four species of monkeys, sloths, scarlet macaws, toucans, Halloween crabs, peccaries, agoutis, coatis, and more. We will never forget the fresh fruit, amazing coffee and sublime banana pancakes we enjoyed each morning (though the egg dishes were terrific, too). And the staff couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. We will definitely return.

We went to this great little lodge hotel, with a large group of fiends and children over the Easter weekend! It was great!
You must me prepared to become One with nature! But it was sooo worth it!
The views from the rooms were breathtaking ...the food was great ( very simple fresh dishes but absolutly every dish was great!
Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and extremely nice....
There was so much to do ! The hotel would organize the activities we wanted and there were so many we didn't have time to do them all!
Loved the outdoor shower! And the rooms were very nice!
It was sooo nice to disconnect from the fast paced life and just flow with nature!
Nothing like coming back from a busy humid day of trecking to an ice cold beer!!
Loved it all!!!
The owners of this hotel are always around to see that all your requests are met ... It gave the whole experience a personal touch!
Absolutely recommend this to any and everyone!!
