“Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

This was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken! This was our first family vacation out of the U.S. with our 2 year old and as expected had my concerns. Judy and Javier were very patient in answering all of my questions via email and phone while planning our trip. It's difficult to put our experience in words but I can truly say it was everything I had expected and more! Judy had mentioned that paradise had it's price, well it does. It took us a very long time to get to and from but it was WELL WORTH it! Traveling all day with a 2 year old can be hectic so when we finally made it to the B&B and were greeted by Judy and Javier I felt an incredible sense of relief and comfort... After that it was pure relaxation. We went with the 7 night package that's posted on the B&B website. The food was delicious, the rooms/house were amazing, and the tours were just what we wanted and expected. Also, the weather was amazing! I was very anxious about the "rainy season" but I'm glad I listened to Judy... I checked all weather sites and BELIEVE ME it didn't give accurate weather conditions (it would indicate rain throughout the day). We were there in May and it only rained at night, which was actually very soothing to hear. Throughout the day we had sunny and partly cloudy 80-90 degree weather (Fahrenheit). By the way, @ the B&B you get a wonderful breeze from the nearby beach! Don't hesitate to ask Judy and Javier about the weather conditions at Vista Hermosa.
Judy and Javier are very nice hosts. Took care of us throughout the entire stay. My son still talks about Nina and Braco (house dogs) that guided us on a walk to the beach. We'll miss them...
I would HIGHLY recommend Villa Vista Hermosa. Great place for a family vacation!

Pura Vida!

My three Friends were celebrating our 50 birthday. Myself never being out of the USA was very impressed with the Vista Hermosa Bed and Breakfast. We were feed very well with wonderful choices on the menu. We were taking wonderful day trips all over the Tambor area, with lots of action packed traveling. The rooms are spacious and very clean, with full service. If you want to just relax the pool is wonderful and the sounds of the monkeys are sooothing to compliment the lovely plants and trees on the grounds.

Room Tip: We stayed by the main area with just rooms to rent. If you want more privacy they have nice houses a...

This bed and breakfast was one of the best we've ever been and one of the best accomodations in Costa Rica. Judy and Javier are very nice hosts and they prepared very delicious breakfasts and dinners (optional) as well. Located on a hill surrounded by a lovely garden and within walking distance to the deserted beach (approx. 15min downhill). The rooms are tastefully furnsihed and perfectly clean. Our hosts provided us with ideas and organized a beautiful and individual trip to Tortuga Islands (very recommendable!!). From the B&B we made a trip to the quiet National Park of Curù and to Montezuma beach. Thank you very much for the pleasant stay.
