Not wanting to spend $150-$395 a night to stay on the beach, we opted for a spacious two bedroom villa. I agree with other reviews: rooms look tired, walls need painting, NO HOT WATER AT ALL,. However, we did enjoy the fully furnished kitchenette, air conditioning, pools, etc. We stayed in a second villa, so I guess that it has... More

There were a few positive things about Villa Huetares, being so close to a beautiful and uncrowded beach was the best. The manager was also a very pleasant and helpful person. But... We stayed for two nights in a standard room and two nights in a villa. In both I felt there was not a high enough standard of cleanliness.... More

First time here was last weekend 30/6. Even we stay just one night is was great: the welcome was great, the price was just perfect (given the fact that we are on mid-year vacations here in Costa Rica) and is it perfectly located; just 2 min walk away from Hermosa beach. From there you can drive to other great places... More

My wife and I stayed at Villa Huetares for a week in March 2013 in one of the villas with a kitchenette. The kitchen had all the essentials. The facility was clean however showing its age. We were within easy walking distance of the beach approx 300 yards. There was a good restaurant attached to the hotel and next door... More

This is a fantastic hotel with an amazing staff. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable, safe, and easy. Will recommend activities or places to eat and help you barter down prices. Mostly Costa Rican families and the staff speaks mostly Spanish, delicious food from Danny, the chef.

This is a great place to spend your last 1 or 2 nights before flying out of Liberia as it's only 1/2 hr from the airport. We had a standard $50 room and it was spacious & clean with lots of storage, a room safe & AC. They have a great pool, nice grounds and gated lot with night watchman.... More

I have stayed at this property now for 8 years in a row for 4-5 weeks at a time. It is a Tico hotel so not many Westerners. It is like a little paradise that no one knows about. I have many friends that live down here in Playa Hermosa and they hardly know about it. The people that run... More

Playa Hermosa was great, not very touristy, but still very beautiful. No one bothered us on the beach at all, best beach day ever. As for Villa Huetares, it was great! Good value, not very expensive. Softest beds in Costa Rica, nice big room, air con, clean. Nice pool with very helpful and friendly staff. Free Internet and close to... More
