I love to stay at privately owned hotels, especially when an American owner lives on property and supervises the day to day operations. No language barriers. We had a great stay at this beautiful property. It is located between a beautiful black sand beach and a mangrove area. The rooms were clean and neat. The staff was very friendly. And the beds were comfortable. We were on the road and took a chance on this place. So the first day we were able to stay in a beachfront "surfer" two bedroom suite right on the beach. The second day we were upgraded to a magnificent suite with a 3rd story penthouse view of the Pacific. Both suites were a very good value. The pools were kept very clean. The grounds were beautiful. While we are not surfers it was sure fun to watch those surfing pros who surfed in front of Marea Brava. They told us that Hermosa Beach is one of the top surfing destinations in the world. The best thing was how close the hotel was to the major tourist city of Jaco, yet without all the noise of that busy city. We found lots of fun things to do nearby including zip lines, canopy tours, casinos, shopping, and a really cool nearby bakery called the Bluegrass Cafe and Bakery...really great homemade cinnamon rolls, house blend gourmet coffee and apple pie. This was a really great vacation!
