The outside kitchen was very handy for preparing meals. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool was quite warm, the kids loved it, but I wished it was a bit... More

Small 12 to 16 rooms, very clean w/ pool, right on the beach and next to a few good place to eat. No need to have to go into Jaco. Great for sunrise and sunset walks. Owner is very nice and helpful. There's a common outdoor kitchen area for all to use. Very popular with locals on the weekends.

We have walked-in Casa Mia without any reservation. We just wanted to be far and away from the busy and loud noises of Jaco. At Casa Mia, we have discovered a wonderfull and cozy little hotel. Diane, the manager, was welcoming and very friendly. When the owners renovated this beachfront hotel, they certainly did not compromise on quality and confort.... More

My husband and I, with another couple, stayed two days with Diane. The rooms were very clean ,with an "American" shower. We could see the Pacific from our balcony and we made use of the outdoor kitchen and pool. Early morning and evening walks on the beach were spectacular. Since this is the hottest month of the year, the beach... More

We just returned home to a frigid Thunder Bay after 10 wonderful days in Playa Hermosa near Jaco, Costa Rica. We were 9 adults and 7 kids aged 2-10, and rented the entire hotel from Nicole and Carlos for our Christmas Vacation. We spent a couple of mornings and an afternoon in nearby Jaco, and can say that Hermosa was... More

Imagine sitting by the pool (clean and inviting), sheltered by a coconut palm (real coconuts) researching the article that you have to submit, looking beyond the screen to see what the surf was doing having slept well in your clean accommodating room and having prepared a pretty hearty breakfast at the common outdoor kitchen (also clean and nice)... well that...

Casa Mia is a delightful newly renovated Colonial Villa right on Playa Hermosa. This hotel is styled as a wonderful home would be, with a pool at the center, a large clean, well appointed outdoor kitchen, and staff that makes you feel as if you were visiting family. The views are spectacular; we walked on the beach, enjoyed morning yoga,... More

Before writing a review I make it a practice to have stayed in a location for at least three times .I think that is the only way a review can be fair and honest. Now we have stayed in Casa Mia 4 times in the last 6 months..........and every time has been thoroughly enjoyable. It is what I would call... More

La Casa Mia is a newly renovated villa on the beach in Playa Hermosa. The rooms are large and comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, and the property opens onto the beach. The prices were reasonable and access to kitchen facilities across from the pool made fixing breakfast or snacks a breeze. The air conditioning was great, the scarlet macaws living... More
