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

2nd time for me visiting Villas Hermosas. It is an oasis of peace and good energy in and around the area. The proximity of the beach and surf is very comfortable. The precense of Tara, Christy, Brad, Pete and the entire staff did make me feel welcome. Pura Vida experience! I'll return next year. Hamish

My husband, kids and I LOVED our stay at Villas Hermosas in Santa Teresa. It's small enough that you get individualized attention by the very friendly owners, Tara, Brad and their two adorable kids. It's remote enough that you feel like you're really away from it all. It's close enough to town that getting to incredible restaurants and the town... More

Villas Hermosas is our absolute favorite family vacation spot! This was our fifth time staying at the resort and it's been perfect every time. The villas are very clean, spacious, and very comfortable for our family of 5. The linens and towels are luxurious and feel oh so good after a day on the beach. It's easy to get into... More

I have been to Costa Rica three times and Villas Hermosas is by far the best place I have stayed. I was travelling alone for a retreat and was astounded at both the accommodations and the personal service. Tara made me feel at home immediately, and she is one of those rare people that you feel you have known for... More

We have travelled all around the world and Playa Hermosa is real special. The villas are well isolated and a 1 minute to the beach, unbelievable sunsets and Tara and Brad make you feel at home! you can just " hang out" at the property and feel in heaven! If you love quite, wildlife (geicko, monkeys), bird life, and beach...don't... More

Villa Hermosas is wonderful find in a fantastic part of Costa Rica. The villas are pretty much on the beach, all of them are set within a secluded and picturesque plot. If the warm ocean is not enough, there’s also a pool (with the best floating bean bags ever). And a sweet shaded rancho (for the wonderful fresh cooked breakfast... More
