“Good location, great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We decided against staying at Villa Belmar, due to recent reviews, complaining of bugs & butts, at the time we were planning our trip. We did stay one night, found the location ideal. Great location, right off the beach. Felix was attentive. I saw no bugs & no butts.

I arrived in Costa Rica about 9:30 P.M. and jumped into a cab to Playa Hermosa a quick 20 minute drive from Liberia airport, I had made reservations on the computer and was anxious to rest after a long day.
We rang the bell, the gate opened up and the owner Felix came out to greet us. Our rooms were ready. Air conditioning, overhead fan firm beds clean rooms, T.V. and a pool just feet from the ocean.
Not only did Felix open the gate he opened his heart to us. He was so generous with his hospitality we could not believe it. He was a unheard of host. He arranged for us to have a free deep sea fishing trip if we stayed at least five days, he also took us out for Karoke and beer on his dime. Like Tony the Canadian said "Do you think the Hilton would treat us this way?
Great food, Great People, Great place

If you want a calm place to hang out and enjoy the views and not feel pressured this is the place. You will be approached by locals on the beach trying to sell you things but it is minimal. Playa del coco is only 15 minutes away and it has quite a night life. My room was very clean with a private shower and restroom. Breakfast is also very cheap here. I spent a lot of time relaxing on the couches in the dining area that look directly onto the water drinking coffee. The staff was also very very friendly, I felt quite at home.

My parents are frequent clients to this hotel so they thought they brought us back to celebrate my bday but it was horrible! I think they put so much thought into it that they felt bad it ended up being a bad experience! First of all they didn't have our rooms we rented the apartment we brought all the food to cook and when we got here they said the apartments were rented to someone else so they gave us 2 rooms with nothing to cook on, we asked to borrow the pan or stove to cook our food so it wouldn't go to waste and they were nice enough to let us. The restaurant is a disaster the new lady owner has no idea what she is doing, and if she would of been nice enough with us we would of stayed for dinner at night instead of going to different places but she killed it. They tried so that's why I'm not giving them a horrible review just average! But definitely won't come back even if they have us a deal I wouldn't care if I have to spend more money for better rooms I will without any hesitation

We had our daughter's beach wedding at the the Hotel Villa Belmar (Sevilla Resort) in April 2013. Our family took over the entire B&B for the week . Our stay and the service we received couldn't have been better. Felix and his staff worked untiringly to meet our every need. They went far beyond what we asked of them, anticipating our needs and providing things we didn't even know we needed. It made a special event even more special. All our rooms were well maintained and cleaned. The breakfast was consistantly tasty and served up quicky to our crowd. Bar services were also great. The pool and lawn area were well maintained and provided a tropical paradise for relaxation and recharging each day. The beautiful beach location is centrally located and convenient to everything. We hghly recommend Hotel Villa Belmar (Sevilla Resort) and will stay there anytime we are in Playa Hermosa.

My niece reserved all the rooms for a week in April for her wedding. We had a blast. It was great having breakfast every morning with all my family. The wedding was on the beach and the reception was around the pool. It was a perfect venue for a wedding. The owner was very accommodating. I really enjoyed my first visit to Costa Rica and I would definitely stay there again.

The location is absolutely amazing! We had our wedding right out on the beach. My family and i filled the hotel and The price was so much cheaper than all of the other beach front options! The owner Felix was amazing and took excellent care of us the entire week that we were there. Breakfast was included in the nightly rate which was an added bonus! The rooms were clean and the pool was great! I could hear the waves crash from my room! So glad someone had suggested this hotel, we definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Playa Hermosa:-)

Room Tip: The top apartment ocean view suite was awesome!!
