“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2008

I spent 5 days at villas hermosas - and am headed back in July. Stunning! Beautiful! Excellent accommodations, wonderful staff, overall a relaxing, exciting, and special place. Fishing, running on the beach, sitting by the pool, snorkeling, miles and miles of beach to explore, perfect sunsets... need i say more?! Paradise defined.

  • Liked — Accomodating staff, excellent service, and beautiful grounds
  • Disliked — My stay was too short!

It is w/ hesitation that I write this glowing review of Villas Hermosas for the selfish reason that my wife and I want to be able to return again and again w/o interference from other bookings. You are immediately relaxed by and, in love w/, your environ minutes after your arrival at the Villas both by the setting and atmosphere but perhaps more by your lovely Hosts: Tara, Brad and enchanting, 18 mos. old, Monica. They are very friendly, engaging, disarming people and you're instantly transformed into NATIVE and disregard Time and schedules. The staff is most friendly and attentive and there wasn't a need that was not fulfilled. The breakfasts are delicious and fresh: juice, fruit, baked goods, eggs, etc.. Rooms are very comfortable w/ dreamy beds and every appointment. The beach is a few meters to the West, and, this is very important, the ocean and waves (which we were in at least three times a day) are Very Safe. Great place to learn how to surf. Brad rents all sizes of boards and is a great teacher. Drift back from the beach- plenty of comfortable shade at the pool and in the evening excellent dining a few kilometers south in Santa Teresa. Paradise Found.

Who would have thought such an incredible hideaway would lay in the middle of the jungle. Travelling the distance from Tambour to Mal Pais was a little rough. We didn't know what to expect. But as soon as you turned off that rocky road to the gates of Villas Hermosas ... nothing but a five star paradise...well worth the trip. The villas were incredible, each one crafted meticulously - equivalent to any of the finer homes in Calgary. Two bedrooms, each with their own bath, a living room, dining room and kitchen ... there was more than enough room for everyone. The best time was spent lying in a hammock, attending informal BBQ's and lying around the pool talking with our friends and other guests. The laid back atmosphere created by the owners and staff transcended to everyone and it was nothing but good times and no worries. A special thanks to Brad and Tara for being such great hosts, being so accomodating and making my trip to Costa Rica an even more memorable experience.

Amazing!!!! This place is something you won't want to miss when visiting Costa Rica. It is modern, clean, and quiet with a private pool and beach for that much needed getaway. The cabanas are top notch with all the amenities and more! You can lay poolside all day while watching the monkeys swinging from the trees. You can hit the waves in the morning without having to worry about other surfers being nearby. It is truly paradise. And your hosts Tara and Brad are amazing hosts that will make your experience all that much better. Whether it's a good restaurant in town or a surf instructor, they will help find you the best!!! Don't miss it!

Pictures do not do Villas Hermosas justice! You have to see it and experience it yourself. I stayed there this past December with 5 of my friends. Everything was perfect, The villas are beautiful with all the amenities you could want. It is a very intimate setting with quiet beaches, great surfing, beautiful pool and grounds. But our hosts really made the stay special. Brad, Tara, Monica and all the staff were there to make sure we had an outstanding experience. Their hospitality and knowledge of the area was exceptional. I will never forget my time there and hope to visit again soon!
