Beautiful Property on the Beach in Playa Hermosa

I had been staying at another property down the street from this hotel. We had changed our return flight and had another night to stay. We had been to the Bosque del Mar hotel for happy hour a couple of times and decided to treat ourselves to a beach front room for our last night.
Our room was on the second floor and had a long balcony with a table and chairs on one end and a built in spa tub on the other. It was lovely to sit outside and listen to the waves. We were delighted when group of five monkeys climbed over the roof of the hotel and proceeded to feast on some dates on a tree very close to our balcony. We sat and watched them for some time.

The room included a small living room and a very spacious bedroom and bath. The bed was amazingly comfortable. I loved the attention to details in the furnishings. We had dinner in their lovely beach front restaurant. The food was very good. We had visited the upstairs bar area on several occasions and they have a good happy hour as well. We also had breakfast in the hotel the morning we left. The beautiful presentation of the food even extends to a simple breakfast of fruit and yogurt.
The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Treehouse vibes & Beach Front

This hotel was everything we needed. It is right next to the beach and the rooms are spacious with a balcony around beautiful greeny that makes you feel you're in a treehouse.
The staff went above and beyond, they were so helpful and try to make everything possible. The massages by the beach are great, she’s been there for 9 years. It’s a great local feel right by the beach. I highly recommend if you are in the area or near the airport.
