Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa is this hidden gem. My husband and our toddler spent three weeks at Villas Hermosas and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Having spent many weeks over the past couple of years in the Santa Teresa area, this was without doubt one of the best places we... More

Villas Hermoosas is stunning.... nice pool, quiet and relaxing, monkeys and birds to see, and the shell picking was incredible. We were only there for a weekend, but enjoyed it thoroughly. It was right after an earthquake, but there was no damage, although other places in the area had some minor damage.

Concisely - read the other reviews, book here you won't regret it! Detail - We planned this trip really carefully and chose Playa Hermosas based on the other excellent reviews and it's location. It lived up to all our expectations. The setting is wonderful, on the beach, secluded and safe. It is just outside the main area, this was a... More

Villas Hermosas was our favorite place to stay on our vacation! The beach, grounds, pool and villa looked like our own private paradise. Since it is a small hotel with only four villas/cottages, you get to know the other guests. We only stayed three short nights, but by the time we left, we felt like family. The breakfast by Kristy...

Villas Hermosas could not have been better! The location is perfect, just off the beaten path but very close to town, and right on the beach. The morning breakfast was local and delicious, the rooms are spacious and the decor is authentic. Best of all was the service provided by Tara and Brad. They are always there with a smile.... More

This place will literally take you're breath away. From any of their villas they have to offer you'll be amazed. I stayed in the honeymoon suite off the beach and it was amazing. You can see the ocean and hear the waves from the suite. It's cozy but not at all small. The owners are relaxed and very informative, extremely... More

This was our third time in Santa Teresa and the first time we stayed at Villas Hermosas. It was definitely the best part of our trip. It's very quiet and peaceful here, and a 3-4 minute walk down to the surfing section of Playa Hermosa which is probably the best beginner/intermediate surfing beach in the area. We travelled as a...

My wife and I spent a few nights at Villas Hermosas this past week and in one word; AMAZING! What an incredible property, great owners and staff, and the best doggy hosts ever! Villas Hermosas is a bit out of the way from the main area of Santa Theresa, but trust me, this is a good thing. Only steps from... More
