Amazing place for new years eve, staying right on the beach and watching all the chinese lanterns sail off into the sky...not to mention the many fireworks shows! Our family had a terrific experience and hope to return over the holidays over the holidays in a couple years.

We came here for a guys trip and had a blast. We needed a place to stay that was near Los Suenos for the deep sea fishing boat we had chartered, and picked this place since it was close enough but much better priced than the Marriott in Los Suenos and the hotels in Jaco. Our room was great, everything... More

What a wonderful place. We came to Costa Rica to relax and explore nature, and this was the perfect spot for both. We enjoyed spending time by the pool and the hotel is right on the beach, which was great. The location of the hotel was ideal for us, and the facilities of the hotel were new and hi-end. For...

On a trip through Costa Rica in June with my friends, we stayed at a few places driving around the pacific coast. We stopped at Playa Hermosa for surfing, and it was so much fun we ended up staying a few nights. We picked this place because it looked like the nicest one on the beach, and it turned out... More

I stayed here over a long weekend and wish it could have been much longer. Ideal location on Playa Hermosa, right on the beach with only the hotel's pool between my room and the sand. Kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils etc., but I mostly ate at the restaurants in Hermosa and Jaco, all of which were good -... More

I spent three weeks in Costa Rica in February, each week in a different part of the country. Each of the three areas were great, but Playa Hermosa was the best! It is a pristine beach with none of the hi-rise type developments on it, but only a 10 minute or so drive to Jaco where Costa Rica's best beach... More

Jeff lives at and manages the Plaza Resort and has done a fine job of creating an experience that includes first class amenities but without the hustle and bustle of a larger more crowded resort or hotel. Usually in a smaller place I often happily accept less than stellar furnishings, bedding and other things related to the room in a... More

Couldn't have asked for anything more. Full kitchen. Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms. Pool overlooking the beach. Really, really nice. Perfect for couples (or multiple couples or couple w/ kids). Hermosa is the place to stay.

Pristine apartment with a fully stocked kitchen. Right on Hermosa beach with a gorgeous swimming pool. Surfing right our front is great if you're a pro, we drove down to the south end of Jaco beach for smaller, beginner waves. Our place had 2 bathroom, 2 bedrooms a huge dinning room, living room and a great balcony. Everything looked brand... More
