The drive to Villas Hermosas from the ferry landing in Pacquera was a little long on the dusty and bumpy Costa Rican roads. But, as soon as we pulled into the parking area @ VH, we were delighted to find a real gem in the middle of the jungle! Brad and Tara, the hosts, were wonderful, and we were in...

I've stayed in several hotels in this area over the years and my wife and I enjoy this one the best. I'd say it's a combination of the location, the beauty of the area, the facilities and the owners themselves. Tara and Brad are extremely kind, friendly and accomodating and their staff follow their lead. They have a beautiful piece...

So what can you say that already hasn’t been said…the beer is too cold, the ocean too warm, the ice cream snacks too tasty? Villas Hermosas lived up to every expectation that I had and exceeded so many that I hadn’t even thought of! Brad and Tara are consummate hosts who seem to know exactly what you need before you...

Ok, so everything you've heard is true. The beach is beyond perfect, the hotel grounds are beautiful, and the staff at Villas Hermosas is outstanding. Brad and Tara are amazing at what they do. Tara scheduled us plenty of activities and did a great job at finding the best deals and giving us great advice. You really need to do...

If you're considering a trip to Costa Rica, this is the place to be! VH sits right on one of the best beaches on the Pacific Coast. Great for relaxing, snorkeling or surfing.

Getting there is not fun. We flew into Tambor and rented at car. The roads are the worst roads on the planet Earth. I thought that there was no way that this could be for real.

We had a great stay at Villas Hermosas in August 2010. The owners, Brad and Tara, made our stay so fun and comfortable. We loved being right on the beach and Brad and Tara organizing our activities for us (surf lessons, ATV tour by Brad, Ziplining). Our wedding was amazing, right in front of the beach at sunset.
