Villa Hermosas is the most relaxing, intimate, and tranquil resort I have ever been to. It is situated on the most beautiful stretch of beach in all of Costa Rica, paradise on earth! The villas are modern and provide all the comforts of home. The owners, Brad and Tara, are fabulous hosts who make you feel right at home. I... More

We just got back from our honeymoon in Costa Rica and part of the time we stayed at Villas Hermosas. I booked this property by reviews on Trip Advisor and I could not have been happier. It exceeded every expectation that we had for it. The property is beautiful....right on a gorgeous and secluded sandy beach surrounded by nature. The... More

We decided to stay at Villas Hermosas for the last 3 nights of our trip to the Nicoya Penninsula. The owners were excellent hosts. They were so friendly and inviting and always available for any questions and assisted us with travel plans. The accomodations were far better than we expected. We stayed in a family villa that was very spacious... More

This place is quite simply beautiful in every way....the owner's (Brad & Tara) have a beautiful spirit for both family and business....the villas are wonderful and the grounds are amazing. Hummingbirds abound, howler monkeys are in the trees, and the beach is a few steps away.....our trip was the best....I couldn't recommend them or their beautiful resort more; you won't... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Villas Hermosas this past summer. It is easily the most unique place I've ever vacationed. Of course, the setting is beautiful, the villas are immaculate and the service is impecable. Yes, it really is as wonderful (or better) than the website suggests! What makes Villas Hermosas special, though, is the people who own it.... More

After a few days at the Arenal Volcano rainforest this was the perfect place to relax. If you want to experience the true Costa Rica you have check this place out soon!

WOW...WOW...WOW First I would like to start out by saying that the worst part about our honeymoon was the fact that we didn't spend all of it at Villas Hermosas. We had such an amazing time, and truly felt welcomed. Brad & Tara are AWESOME hosts, and are perfect at what they do. My lovely bride and I stayed in... More

Amazing! This was the first place that we stayed on our adventure, and we could not have asked for anything more! Tara was wonderful from the very beginning....from booking our villa, to suggestions, to the followup right before we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised by our beautiful, clean, spacious, air-conditioned, clean, clean, clean villa! The ambiance of the entire property... More

Surfing and access to wireless was why we booked at Villas Hermosas, but Villas Hermosas is so much more. The proprietors Brad and Terra were so great and with a toddler and another baby on the way it felt like you were part of their family. Surf instructors and surf boards were delivered to your door and when you were... More

Maybe it was the large, comfortable 2-bdrm, 2-bath villa or the generous breakfast each morning, or the well-groomed beach front property or the lovely pool with waterfall. But most of all it was owner couple Tara and Brad and their team's attention to countless small details. Big rain shower? umbrella is at our door. Gonna go for a swim? the... More
