Our family recently spent a month in Costa Rica and got a chace to stay in many different hotels and homes. We got an opportunity to stay at the Vista Hermosa and it was our favorit.

This B&B is in a settlement, consisting a couple of newer homes and some old farm houses. it lies 4-5 km from the paved road. There is nothing there where you can get by walking. The place is well kept, the the yard is beautiful, the little swimming pool is sparkling clean. The breakfasts were always scrambled eggs with cheap,... More

Hola Janos, I would like to thank you for your review. I appreciate all comments to insure improvements on our part. Unfortunately I cannot address our location. It is 1 km from the main road and in such offers a quiet private location. This is a rural part of the country. Thank you for commenting on the cleanliness of my... More

This spot is perfect if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. There is not much in Tambor but Judy offers excursions of just about anything your heart desires. I went on a gorgeous horseback ride on the beach. Judy is a fabulous cook and the food was always fresh and delicious. Judy... More

We went to Vista Hermosa for dinner on two occasions during our stay in Tambor. Judy and Javier were great hosts and Judy provided us with two fantastic meals. On our second visit, we expected the same menu, but no, it was different, which was a nice surprise! It was evident by the quality of our food served, that Judy... More

Be careful when you book this B&B, the description on the website doesn't match with what you get. We booked this trip through Expedia and we were supposed to get a private room with bathroom, living room and kitchen. When we arrived, after a 4 hours drive with Javier and different stops at groceries stores in order to buy what... More

Thank you for comments. I will address the issues individually 1) On all websites including Expedia it states NO children under 17 We are small and In consideration for other guests do not allow children 2) We do offer 1 room with kitchenette, & living area, but you did not book that room. 3) We are a Bed and Breakfast...

Hey Judy, I had a great stay at Vista Hermosa. You and Javier were very attentive and made sure my stay was perfect. The breakfasts prepared by Doris were great and carried me through till dinner. Dinners were always a treat as the menu was changed regularly and everything was fresh, hot and tastey. My room was very well decorated,... More

I just stayed at Vista Hermosa with my girlfriend for two nights and had an amazing time. The ride over we drove on mostly dirt roads and noticed there wasn't much around, which was absolutely perfect for me but my girlfriend, more of a night owl, wasn't as thrilled. However, when we arrived at the B&B, we were greeted by... More
