About Us

Our History

Our family started opening Tilajari Hotel Resort in Arenal Volcano area in 1989, later in 2003 we bought a unique beach front property in Guanacaste, called Cabinas Playa Hermosa. This legendary lodging company was the first established in Playa Hermosa during the 60´s.

The old fashion cabins were popular due their excellent location right in front of a great, pristine beach. They were also characterized by a good restaurant and beautiful gardens with enormous trees.

Once the family bought it, the property changed from cabins to hotel, got the new name Bosque del Mar, Playa Hermosa and started the project of total renovation extended by the next 5 years. We renovated all rooms and furniture and built the swimming pool, jacuzzi and the Junior Suites improving progressively the quality in services. Later, during 2008 Ocean Front and Garden View Suites were finished to complement the Junior Suites, and a new main building with high level restaurant, lounge bar, conference hall and a Penthouse floor.

By the end of 2008 Bosque del Mar reopened featuring completely brand new and high level facilities, but keeping the charm and intimacy the property originally offered.

Playa Hermosa Bay is a great and peaceful location for beach lovers, not crowded and offers a gorgeous view of Pacific Ocean. Just few kilometers away, there are also other beaches to explore as Playa Panamá, Ocotal and El Coco.
