“Very tranquil, awesome sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2011

Hotel is design so you can relax and enjoy. Service was outstanding. My husband and I are here in Costa Rice for 6 weeks and we stayed at Villa Belmar the day after we arrived in CR for 2 days, then we came back to Villa Belmar with our friends that flew in from Phoenix and we stay there for 5 days and we all would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Stay upstairs, a very quiet hotel

Villa Belmar is a small, family run hotel located right on the beautiful crescent beach of Playa Hermosa. They don't do a lot of advertising, but it had been recommended to us by a couple of different local friends, and it was great advice! We've now visited Playa Hermosa twice, and I highly recommend both the area and this hotel, especially for those who want to relax or swim in the ocean.

All hotels along the beach here are behind high security fences street side. In Villa Belmar, as you pull into the secured parking, you'll see right through the beautiful hotel veranda, past the pool, to the ocean. The owners live right there, and my guess is they have 6 or 8 rooms total. The weekend we stayed was one of the lowest business times of the year, and we were the only clients in the hotel. The staff pretty much left us to ourselves but were always there if we needed anything.

The room was basic, but it was quite large with a nice big shower, TV and fridge, a king bed for my husband and I and two twin beds for our kids. Typical breakfast was included and served each morning on the veranda. All that for only $70 for the 4 of us! The only complaints I had was that the bed was a bit hard for my taste and I got a lot of bug bites while sitting on the outdoor couch, but that is the beach.

The location is divine. We literally spent the entire weekend going from room to pool to beach to pool and back again, most of it barefoot in swimsuits. The ocean water was warmer than the pool, which is not to say that the pool was cold. Both were perfect. The surf was just big enough to be fun for our 7 and 10 year old but still let us parents feel safe. Playa Hermosa has a lovely path that runs under the trees the entire length of the beach, which I'd guess to be about 2km(?). A walk from one end to the other is perfect for a morning stroll.

The hotel's restaurant wasn't open due to it being low season. We found restaurants in the area to be OK, but a bit pricy. There's a great grocery store on the main road into town so we just stocked the fridge for lunch and snack, then splurged on dinner. Overall a great weekend!

Unbelievable find right on the beach, secured parking, delicious breakfast, I felt I had my own beach house with staff. Extremely private and romantic, swimming pool is very clean.
Rooms have ac and a fridge so you can keep snacks. You can walk right onto the beach in your bare feet and go to resturants. Can´t say enough about the place, have been thre twice in two weeks, I am a guide here. Pedro and his wife are so kins and you feel the Pura Vida here.
