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

Recently stayed 3 nights at Vista Hermosa while doing my scuba dive certification. The place was perfect for our needs! Secure, clean, cozy and with delicious food! The attention given from Judy and the staff was outstanding, making sure we had everything we need. The place is beautiful and well taken care of will definitely go back!

Enjoyed every minute of my time here! We only had a short trip and wanted to maximize what we could see -- Judy and Javi bent over backwards to make sure we got to see everything we wanted. It was even great the last day when we were sunburnt and heat exhausted to just chill in the pool and on... More

We stayed there for 5 days and wish we'd stayed longer! It is the perfect holiday get-away, a little paradise with great personality from the actual house, the rooms and Judy, Javier. The hosts were amazing and welcoming. On top the food was gorgeous, fresh, home made. I would highly recommend this place for a time-out from all the stress... More
