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

The Surf Inn was fabulous and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations and hospitality. Christina is the best and very helpful with anything you need. This place is definitely a hidden treasure, its right on the beach with several good restaurant's within walking distance. We highly recommend this place and will definitely be back. PURA VIDA

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here at Surf Inn Hermosa and have become enamored once again with this "hidden gem". For those that want an off the beaten path experience, yet like the accessibility of modern conveniences, look no further! Also, new Costa Rican travelers will appreciate staying here!

A relaxing stay that only hit the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to head back for yoga, surf lessons, and nearby restaurant visits. Very relaxing stay with a totally accommodating and relaxed host. Very good value for the money and well organized yoga or surf packages. It was supposed to be the rainy season but was more summery... More

Surf inn Hermosa was the location of my 3 week yoga retreat. The location is far enough from town to feel the benefits of serenity. But close enough to go to shop, eat or party. The rooftop airy yoga studio is awesome which connects to a open air kitchen that is serene and great place to watch the sunsets and... More

I am surprised not much is discussed about this lovely place in TA forums. When my friend pulled over here for 2-night stay I was very worried as the place looks weird, cheesy, and hippy from the outside. Once I walked into the Ocean view room I understood why my friend who visited Costa Rica over a dozen times choose... More

Surf Inn Hermosa is centrally located in Playa Hermosa, Jaco. The two bedroom condo is spacious with two full baths, kitchen and living room and wonderful oceanfront porch. Because of their great location, you can easily walk to all bars and restaurant in Playa Hermosa. Jaco is just a 5 min drive away.

I think many of the reviews are from those who stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments with ocean views and big balconies. We opted for the cheaper option of the one bedroom studio. The draw back for the downstairs studio apartment is very little natural light gets in, you can't open any windows and there is no outside... More
