This place is one of those little gems you only find once in awhile. The staff is amazing and wait on your every need. The owner Judy is wonderful, straight forward and genuine. If you are looking to relax away, from the city, with all the comforts of home but without chores, this is the place! Cheers -

We loved this place! If you are looking for a place to unwind and relax, this is it. You won't find a noisy bar scene because you are up and away from it all. Its a very short walk to the beach where we saw a ton of wildlife including monkeys. Judy is wonderful and knowledgeable and the meals we... More

The owner Judy has done an excellent job at building this unique little hideaway. If you're looking for an all inclusive type getaway where you can even pre-book meals, drinks and day trips, Judy and her staff will ensure you want for nothing. If you are traveling to Tambor, we definitely didn't see anything that would top Visa Hermosa accommodation-wise.... More

I loved everything about my 8 night Costa Rica stay at Casa Colleen! It is managed by Judy & Javier as part of ‘Pure Living’, and includes the Vista Hermosa B & B accommodations next door. Judy & Javier are wonderful social companions, and they provided us first class service from picking us up at the local airport, to our... More

We stayed 5 nights here in a house that Judy rented to us and it is a fantastic experience. After two weeks of traveling around in CR with our kids this was a great retreat. The house has a nice pool, A/C and everything we need for cooking and relaxing. Judy and Javier are lovely hosts, helping us out with... More

My wife and I just stayed 5 nights at the Vista Hermosa and it was the perfect relaxing getaway. We enjoyed the private location and pools and beautiful views. The morning coffee and breakfasts were fantastic. My wife was recently diagnosed with celiacs disease and it was clear Judy had done her research - thank you again Judy! As a... More

My girlfriend and I stayed three nights here in August, and I still think about the experience daily. Judy and Javier and the awesome dog are the best hosts I have ever met. The location is great, quiet and within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. The food is wonderful, and I recommend the Pina Coladas. I definitely plan on... More

We just returned from a fantastic stay with Judy and Javier. They were each wonderfully attentive to our every need, from arranging great adventure trips (zipline, ATV, kayaking, scuba, etc), to diverse dining options and allowing us privacy. We will miss the morning ritual of coffee and a swim! Our meals were great, with hearty breakfasts and fine dinners with... More

We had an amazing stay at Vista Hermosa. This is a beautiful and intimate guesthouse. Judy, Javier and Bracko are a brilliant team and are so hospitable. Javier prepares brilliant Costa Rican food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. You should also demand Judy's banana bread pudding. This is also a great B&B to mingle with and get to know other... More

We found Vista Hermosa on Trip Advisor after we read some bad reviews about the hotel we had originally reserved. Since we were traveling during the rainy season, they were running specials, which was very appealing. What really hooked us though, was talking on the phone with Judy and having a package put together specifically for us! It did rain... More
