I don't want Brad and Tara to get inflated ego (their modesty is the key to their success), but the fact is that they run one of the most wonderful hotels I've ever been to. Our family has been to VH six times and counting. Things just get better and better, even if this July was wetter and wetter! To... More

Villas hermosas was well named. These villas are absolutely beautiful. They are run by Brad and Tara, who are the best hosts and owners of this property. They treat their guests as family. The beach, the pool, the howler monkeys waking us up every morning, the frogs and the gorgeous villa was our home for a week and we had... More

Spent 8 days in Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais at Villas Hermosas and we thoroughly loved our visit so much that we truly did not want to come home. Brad and Tara were awesome hosts. We just told them where we wanted to go, and when, and they took care of everything from our zip line tour in Montezuma to dinner... More

Perfect. Brad & Tara have built a destination like no other. Our boys, 5, 7, & 9, did not want to leave, nor did I. We chose Hermosas largely on their Trip Advisor ratings. You guys were right. The beach is secluded with only a few other souls to share it with. You can walk for an hour without speaking... More

For our honeymoon, my wife and I picked Villas Hermosas over going to Fiji because we heard the service was amazing, we were totally psyched for surfing lessons, and we didn't want to waste an entire day flying... We had an absolute blast! Brad and Tara treat you like king/queens and family at the same time. They make themselves available... More

We stayed at Villas Hermosas in Mal Pais for the second half of our Costa Rican trip from May 27-30th and it was by far our favorite place of our whole trip! Brad and Tara make you feel like you are part of family and the whole place feels like your own home away from home. We stayed in the... More

Brad and Tara were great hosts and went out of their way to be sure our experience was second to none. The accommodations were excellent and we wanted for nothing. While the property is beautiful and detached from the small city life of Santa Teresa, we all enjoyed the little town and hope against hope it will be frozen in... More

We stayed at Villas Hermosas with my fiancés family for his sister’s wedding. There are not enough good words to describe Villas Hermosas or its owners. Brad and Tara are so helpful and willing to do anything to make your stay perfect. No worries of cleanliness or safety here. The beach is amazing with beautiful views and is the perfect... More
