“Great place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

First time here was last weekend 30/6. Even we stay just one night is was great: the welcome was great, the price was just perfect (given the fact that we are on mid-year vacations here in Costa Rica) and is it perfectly located; just 2 min walk away from Hermosa beach.
From there you can drive to other great places such as Coco and Panama beaches, it is just a 10 min by car.
Again, highly recommended during any season of the year. I am willing to spend more nights on this great place.

Room Tip: Villas on second floor have a different design than the ones located on the first floor. I would rec...

My wife and I stayed at Villa Huetares for a week in March 2013 in one of the villas with a kitchenette. The kitchen had all the essentials. The facility was clean however showing its age. We were within easy walking distance of the beach approx 300 yards. There was a good restaurant attached to the hotel and next door a local soda that had good food when we decided not to cook. Very nice pool and well kept grounds.

This is a fantastic hotel with an amazing staff. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable, safe, and easy. Will recommend activities or places to eat and help you barter down prices. Mostly Costa Rican families and the staff speaks mostly Spanish, delicious food from Danny, the chef.

Room Tip: Villa's have two bedrooms, 1-2 bathrooms and a kitchen. Habitaciones are standard doubles. Reque...

This is a great place to spend your last 1 or 2 nights before flying out of Liberia as it's only 1/2 hr from the airport. We had a standard $50 room and it was spacious & clean with lots of storage, a room safe & AC. They have a great pool, nice grounds and gated lot with night watchman. The staff is friendly & helpful. The rooms include breakfast but only during busier times, so ask. They have an outdoor kitchen area where you can prepare light breakfast & coffee/tea. The quiet beach is a short walk away and there are a few restaurants in the area. Howlers can be heard and spotted in the nearby mango trees.

Room Tip: Rooms have refrigerator, villas have kitchen.

I have stayed at this property now for 8 years in a row for 4-5 weeks at a time. It is a Tico hotel so not many Westerners. It is like a little paradise that no one knows about. I have many friends that live down here in Playa Hermosa and they hardly know about it. The people that run it do not speak a lot of English but the are so helpful in trying to make your stay a great one. The rooms are very clean, have AC, fridge and TV. The courtyard and pool area are also very well maintained. You are a block from the beach and you have a small store right next to the hotel. The best sunsets in Costa Rica are just down the road.
I maybe shooting myself in the foot telling the world about this place but it needs to know.

Playa Hermosa was great, not very touristy, but still very beautiful. No one bothered us on the beach at all, best beach day ever. As for Villa Huetares, it was great! Good value, not very expensive. Softest beds in Costa Rica, nice big room, air con, clean. Nice pool with very helpful and friendly staff. Free Internet and close to the market, beach and very close to the main bus stop. Very pleasant surprise all around.
