Sadly our visit to Vista Hermosa was only 2 days. From the moment Ernesto, Brako, and Pulga greeted us at the front gate we knew we had found a winner. The house is beautiful and open with amazing gardens outside. The bar area was perfect for an afternoon pina colada (Ernesto makes THE best blended drinks...). The room was large... More

Finding Judy's restaurant was a god send after experiencing disappointing meals around the area. The warm, friendly atmosphere immediately makes you feel comfortable. We weren't even staying at the hotel, and we ended up hanging around the area for the afternoon and returning in the evening for the expertly mixed drinks, wonderful conversations and truly satisfying home cooking. The pina... More

We ate at the restaurant at Vista Hermosa and were so impressed by the food and the service. The bar tender makes fabulous cocktails, the salads were yummy, and we particularly enjoyed Judy's beef tenderloin. Tender and delicious! !

My husband and I stayed at Vista Hermosa for six nights in February and we can truthfully say it was the best stay we've ever had together. So much so, that we were pretty bummed to have left and were quite sad during our flights back home to the states. It took a bit of an effort (due to my... More

Last night, my husband and I took 5 of our friends to Vista Hermosa to try out the restaurant. They loved it as much as we do. They agreed that Judy Bonnell was a wonderful and caring person, as well as, an excellent chef. Her staff are well trained and very likeable and professional too. We enjoyed a cocktail in... More

Oh Costa Rica, you’ve stolen my heart. None of my imaginings met your raw beauty. I found Judy and the Vista Hermosa Bed and Breakfast through FlipKey in March, and her spot-on advice throughout the months of planning our Christmas trip was the invaluable key to our epic vacation. We were a party of seven adults, two parents, three twenty... More

We had a great time in Vista Hermosa BB. The staff was offering an excellent service and the villa we rented had access to a pool we shared with only one more villa. Great ocean view from the pool and from the villa!

My husband, sister-in-law, brother-in-law and I were scheduled to stay at a different hotel in Montezuma but when we got there we realized that the hotel did not have air conditioning and it was 90 degrees outside! We looked around for a different place to stay and found Vista Hermosa B&B and I am glad that did! The owner, Judy,... More
