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

Really good food quality, relaxed, friendly and clean. An oasis in this part of southern Nicoya. Good location for excursions to Montezuma, Mal País/Santa Teresa and Curú. The closest beach is so-so, but with some effort it is possible to access the nice beach below Tango Mar.

Visited Costa Rica not knowing really what to expect but were we surprised!!! Javier picked us up and took us to this hidden gem at the Villa Hermosa B&B. On the way Javier can spot monkeys out of nowhere and his knowledge of the area made the trip enjoyable. Once arriving at the B&B we were greeted by Judy for... More

We wanted to visit Costa Rica and we found Vista Hermosa B&B a very cozy and relaxing place. Judy and her staff provided a very personalized service and her cooking was fabulous and delicious; we also enjoyed the tour that Pulga and Brako (their dogs) gave us to the beach. We walked about ten or fifteen minutes and although Pulga... More

Great place - feels like a second home with super friendly host and great cook (steak is amazing) Judy. Judy also organises tours - so get in touch with her prior to booking your trip! Highly recommended!
