Playa Hermosa is one of the favorite locations in CR. We like hotel Mangaby . close to the beach and all the supermarkets and other place. A 25 minutes drive from liberia airport. The hotel is run by Alberto and his family. Very nice people

The choices in Playa Hermosa, which is tiny, are fairly limited, and Hotel ManGaby is pretty decent value compared to what else is available. It's basic, not luxurious but clean and fairly comfortable, and our room included a spacious suite including kitchen, sitting area indoors, and a small deck by the pool. The decor is pretty 50's. The restaurant on... More

The staff was great. Thank... More

We stayed five days in late June. The room was large and had everything you could want to make yourself at home. The blender was especially handy for poolside drinks. The a/c worked great, and the pool was truly beautiful. It lives up to the photos that are posted. The beach is a three minute walk, as are great restaurants.... More
