Colonial-style hotel in a superb location, with traditional décor and touches of Central American colour.
The small yet rather grand-looking Villa Bosque with its colonial air and traditional style has a privileged location a stone's throw from Manuel Antonio National Park. Equally near are the pearly-white sands of Espadilla beach and the lively local village.
Villa Bosque is a clean and friendly place to stay and the staff are very welcoming, offering to help at every opportunity. The décor mixes dark classical furniture with touches of the vibrant colour typical of Central America.
The hotel offers a wide range of excursions (at extra cost), and has an outdoor swimming pool with panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness. There is a bar area and restaurant specialising in seafood.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Staff here were very helpful and the friendliest of all the hotels. The hotel could possibly do with some modernising but would recommend due to the staff and proximity to the national park.HT, Cardiff
