From April 26th to May 3rd/2008 I spent 7 wonderful days at Playa Hermosa as a guest at a wedding held there. I can not say enough about the incredible staff and wonderful accommodation. I stayed in one of the new suites which was beautifully crafted from local wood and had all the ammenities of home. The air conditioning was a necessity (95+ degrees) and it kept me very comfortable throughout my stay. The grounds have lush vegetation and you can see that the new area was designed to retain as many trees as possible (even has trees growing up thru many of the patios) The pool area is quiet and well shaded from the hot sun. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes to walk the beach from end to end and the bay is picturesque and well protected. The food overall was good but the steaks were exceptional!! They served breakfast buffets most mornings which were very good. The lunch and dinner menu was not extensive but was good quality and presented very well.
I have saved the very best for last - the staff and the service were top notch; friendly - fun - fantastic. The waiters were singing all the time; very accommodating with any requests I made; made me feel very welcome and were more than patient with my limited spanish.
I have done a lot of travelling and I would put "Playa Hermosa" very close to the top of my most favorite place to stay.
