Brad and Tara are fantastic "hosts"! I'm not sure that is their official job description, but they were amazing! If you are into spending time with the people you travel with and not hundreds of strangers, this is the place for you. Very intimate. Very safe. We loved it there and will be back.

I love Villas Hermosas and I think it is pretty evident by the fact that we have stayed there five times in four years. If you are looking to visit the Santa Teresa/Malpais area, I highly recommend Villas Hermosas. It is located on the far edge of town and owned by 2 of the loveliest people I have had the... More

Every year I tell myself I won't write another review, that it's all been said already. And every year there's something new that I can't keep to myself despite the fact that I'd really love to keep this place kind of secret. But, too late, secrets out... so here goes. This was our 5th or 6th visit and we brought... More

Friends of ours recommended Santa Teresa as THE place to go if you are going to Costa Rica. I did a lot of research before booking a place given how out of the way Santa Teresa is and the variety of accommodations. We were looking for something not too rustic but also something that would allow us to feel like... More

It was our second visit to Villas Hermosas. This property is a gem. Owners Tara and Brad treated us to their vision of what a haven of relaxation should be. They hit it out of the park in so many ways. We stayed in the honeymoon suite set steps from the almost deserted expanse of Playa Hermosas. Just a few... More

My husband and I stayed at Villas Hermosas last summer and I was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful and private this resort felt. I'm pretty picky with my accommodations and was relieved on how gorgeous and clean the cabanas are with upgraded features. It was a perfect balance of luxury in a remote natural paradise located in Santa Teresa. We... More

Villas Hermosas is absolutely our #1 go-to location on the Nicoya Peninsula to enjoy the tranquility of nature, the stunningly beautiful, pristine and endless Pacific coastline, the mesmerizing sight and sounds of the ocean and a comfortable, safe ‘home away from home’. We were welcomed back by Tara, Brad, Monica and Jeremy for our third visit in February of this... More

Villas Hermosas is everything all the reviews claim! Lovely private villas well stocked and equipped. Wonderful cooked to order breakfast every morning. Steps to the beach and a great surf area. Beautiful sunset and set up so wonderfully with chairs, etc to watch the sunset every evening. Friendly owners and staff, fresh flowers placed through out the villas. Short drive... More

I spent a week at Villas Hermosas with my Wife and 2 year old child in Feb 2015. From the very moment we first contacted Tara at VH, we knew we were on to something special, and the experience did not disappoint. Some highlights: 1. Tara was awesomely helpful during our planning stages, offering advice and logistics support to help... More

The best thing about Villa Hermosas was the proximity to the surf. Start your day with fresh mango, papaya, pineapple, eggs, tea and more from the complimentary awesome breakfast, walk a few steps to the beach and surf until your tired. Snooze the afternoon heat in the hanging bed in the garden, or enjoy practicing your duck dive in the... More
