This place is amazing, especially given the reasonable price. The house and grounds were built to the highest standards. We stayed in the master bedroom and loved everything about it. From the domed ceiling to the art collection everything was perfect. We wish we had reserved more time there. It was tough to find at first. There is no signage....

It was like having our own gorgeous Costa Rican mansion. The pool was perfect for the kids/adults. The beds we're comfortable, clean, and the grounds provided a great opportunity to bird-watch. Keep your eyes peeled for macaws, tucans and iguanas.

My 22-year-old daughter and I stayed at Forest Hills Suites for three nights. The house and grounds were spectacular, exactly like the photos. There was a lovely swimming pool, open 24/7, a large central kitchen shared by all, and lovely, air-conditioned rooms with huge marble showers. The manager of the FHS is an exceptionally delightful woman named Erica, who is...

After two weeks in Costa Rica, we had our best sleep in Forest Hills. The property, common spaces and rooms are absolutely beautiful and incredibly comfortable. To be honest, the bed was a little too comfortable - it was hard to leave! A little off the beaten trail, Forest Hills is peaceful and private and yet still close to the...

Located at a good "in between point" for my fiance and I traveling between Arenal Volcano and the Pacific National Park, Manuel Antonio, Forest Hills Suites fit the bill. We knew it was somewhere near Jaco, but with so much planning and only a little WiFi time before hand, we were not sure exactly where it was. We neared our...

We were looking for a decent and quiet place along the central coast as a base for tours, along with something economical. We had been in Jaco many times, but only wanted comfort and accessibility, not walking access to the beach. We read the reviews and knew there had to be something to it, but could not understand why this...

This was our first time renting a villa. I always choose luxury hotels and was nervous about a villa. It is beautiful. There is a maid and for an astronomical fee you can hire a chef. You must have a car. The house has a pool and two outdoor friendly dogs whom my kids still talk about and miss. You...

We got lost three times trying to find this gem of a B&B. They need to put directional signs because GPS in CR is not reliable. Once we found it, we were swept away. Seven+ acres of forest and old Spanish charm. Erica was chatty and helped us understand the money, the slang, and the culture. Brava!
