My wife and I and our two kids (ages 11 and 9) had the good fortune of staying at the Villas Hermosas for 3 nights. This is no cookie-cutter resort -- it is so much better and more authentic. The properly consists of a main house, where the awesome proprietors Brad and Tara live with their kids, surrounded by 4...

Brad and his wife Tara are great people and have worked hard to design a wonderful vacation destination for the entire family. This place is truly amazing and the hospitality of these two surpasses anything I have been privy to and we travel two to three times per year. Right on the beach with beautiful rooms and pool.

We have been on surf vacations to CR before, but this was our first trip to the Playa Hermosa/Santa Teresa area. After looking at EVERYTHING on line, we choose Villas Hermosa. Just far enough away from the noise and dust of Santa Teresa (3 min car ride). This mini resort is on the beach - with 3 private casitas near...

We just got back from our vacation at "Villas Hermosas" and the reviews are real. We spent the week with my wife and I, along with three "twenty somethings" who were thoroughly entertained as we were. The people that own and run the villas are top notch and have been doing so for more than 10 years. The three separate...

We loved this wonderful little resort! There are 4 homes on the property that are surrounded by lush greenery. The homes were beautifully furnished and comfortable for our 6 person family. The pool was on the small side, but nice to dip in after a day at the beach. The pool has a beautiful waterfall and separate sitting area away...

The condos are extremely spacious and well appointed. We had a problem with ants on our first night but once we told them they came and sprayed immediately. After that, the ants problem got better. Suggestion would be to spray before each guest (I know they are trying to be eco conscious but the ant situation ruined the whole first...

Thank you for your lovely review of our hotel! We agree, our backyard (ie. Hermosa beach) is pretty amazing, so lucky to call it home! :) Quick note about the ants: we do not fumigate unless we absolutely have to. It is rare, because of our villa's design, to have any bugs, let alone an infestation like that...so to spray...

Family-run Villas Hermosas is a dream spot to vacation and also to host an event.
