I recently stayed at Surf Inn Hermosa while training to become a yoga teacher. The property is clean and the location is absolutely stunning... literally just footsteps to a black sand surfer's beach! Christina, the owner, is top-notch and works very hard to keep her clients/visitors satisfied. Christina knows all of the locals and so she is extremely helpful in... More

I brought a group of 9 people for a week long surf trip, we stayed here from Dec 30th-Jan 6th. It was great, the staff is super friendly, very helpful. If you need anything all you have to do is ask and it will get taken care of. It all started with getting the trip lined up she made it... More

This place was amazing. We only stayed one night and the owner (Christine I think...sorry if I got that wrong) was incredible. She knew everything. Like everything, great host. The hotel was clean and being buffed up while we were there. So nice to stay in a place that is so well taken care of. Its not budget but its... More

Greated by warm and friendly poeple and shown a perfect room. If the ocean side is open, grab those rooms, they were sold out when I showed up. This is a great place to surf, good restaurants on either side. I'm going back.

My first trip to Costa Rica couldn't have been ANY better (except if I'd had time to squeeze in a hike at Arenal Volcano, but that was a little too far from Surf Inn Hermosa where everything else was in easy reach. Being ON the black sand beach was in itself a treat, but to be in a rustic, yet... More

This boutique hotel on the beach of Playa Hermosa is the jewel of this small beach community just south of Jaco. Owners Christina and Michael are on site and always available to offer suggestions for fun local attractions and great places to eat, often known only to the locals. Very Clean and highly recommended!

The Surf Inn is wonderful - both in location and service. My partner had an accident in the water the second day we were there, and while he was in hospital Christina took great care of my children and I. She let us stay several extra nights although the place was booked out, and called the hospital on my behalf... More

I am not sure even where to start in describing how satisfied I was with my accommodations at Surf Inn Hermosa. For starters, Christina and Mike are the most amazing hosts. Christina can answer any question you have and line up any activity you desire. Mike has the area wired in terms of the best and least crowded surf breaks.... More
