5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

We went to have dinner .the food was tasty . The hotel is spotless clean .The owners québécois are there to make sure you get the best service .
On Fridays Wed and Friday's they have a band and play great music .one of the owners plays the guitar .The place is packed .
It is close to playa Hermosa beach .It is a safe beach to swim It has an amazing sunset .Sand is grey but okay .You can rent boats go snorkeling and fishing
Prices are pretty decent for the quality of hotel .
Service is what differentiates this hotel with other hotels in the area .

Room Tip: Since I did not stay there can't give my opinion on the rooms .However I am sure rooms are spotl...

A good value & very nice place to send a day or two. The rooms are rather small but clean and comfortable. The typical costa rican breakfast they offer is worth trying. Bar and Restaurant on site. Stay for dinner as the food is excellent and there is often entertainment on the weekends. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A 3-5 minute walk from the beach and pizzeria pub and sports bar within walking distance.

I stayed here for 4 nights with my friend, and had a great experience. The hotel is very cute and comfortable. Everything is super clean, the staff is incredibly friendly, great location, and 2 nice pools.

Here is why I didn't give them 5 stars:

1. The restaurant is pretty bad. I got the Mahi Mahi and it was dry as could be.

2. They only offer 2 twins or 1 double. I would imagine that being kind of weird if you were going with a significant other.

We recently stayed in one of the condos within the resort. It was nicely appointed with a beautiful pool steps away and the landscaping is incredible. The Villa del Sueno is such a wonderful place to stay for so many reasons. The staff, from the time you arrive, to the time you depart, could not be more helpful, friendly and fun. From desk staff, to bartender to waiter, each person treated us as friends not just guests. The restaurant is amazing. The first night we were greeted by Sophia the chef who is very talented and also personable. We recommend the Mahi Mahi with shrimp sauce but any meal there is a winner. The hotel is not on the beach but very close and the walk is pleasant. We even saw monkeys on the way to the surf. We would return and highly recommend staying here if you want a pleasant, stress-free, and restful vacation.

Villa del Sueno is a great hotel for the price in Playa Hermosa. Staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's not on the beach, but less than 5 minutes walk. A little way from the town too, but that means it's quiet but still not too far.

Ate here while staying at Bosque Del Mar.

Amazing food and GREAT service. Such a cute atmosphere for dinner with all the lights.

Probably the best service we had in CR!

We spent 5 nights at Villa del Sueno around the new years holiday. Our room overlooking the pool was very nice and the pool was a great place to spend the afternoon when the heat and holiday crowds hit the beach. The restaurant was excellent; we especially enjoyed the huevos rancheros for breakfast. The best feature of this hotel was the hospitality of the staff who really made us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to return.

Room Tip: If you're not needing a condo, the standard rooms overlooking the pool are a nice option.
