My husband and I have been to Villas Hermosas twice, and loved both our stays. (7 nights the first time, 8 nights the second time) The resort features clean, well-maintained bungalows, delicious breakfasts, a clean pool, a lovely bamboo forest to stroll through, delightful howler monkeys, relaxing hammocks on the porches, and the most friendly and helpful hosts you will...

Everything about our stay was wonderful! The Villa was spacious, clean and beautiful. The beach was the nicest I've ever had the pleasure to swim in. A great beach for walking or jogging, too. We met friendly, interesting people and Brad and Tara, the owners, were so helpful and made us feel at home. We are planning to return--it was... More

My husband and I were in Costa Rica for the first time but it will not be our last because of Villas Hermosas and all they offer. From the tropical setting to the custom detail of every villa, these accommodations make this place one of a kind! Personal touches not only with the decorating but also the managing of these...

Villas Hermosas was everything we expected and more! My husband and I went to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect spot! The accomodations and grounds were just beautiful. We very much enjoyed visting with Brad and Tara, their staff, and the other guests. It was very much like visiting family. Brad and Tara were very accomodating. They... More

We stayed here on the last 4 days of our trip to Costa Rica. Brad and Tara were awsome hosts. From the moment I contacted them to the minuite we left the hospitality, information and location were outstanding. We stayed in one of the Villas and were blown away by the size and relaxing interior. The kitchen is a good... More

After a long drive from San Jose, Villas Hermosas was a breath of fresh air. When we arrived we both sighed a breath of relief. It was exactly like the pictures on their website and our villa was amazing! We stayed in the Honeymoon Villa which looked out onto the ocean and we laid in our hammock most afternoons and... More

What a great spot to chill for a week! Ok, it's a little hard to get to (try driving from Liberia for a real adventure!) and Mal Pais/Santa Teresa has a distinctly surfer vibe that may not appeal to all..but Brad and Tara run a wonderful property where you can really feel at home. The villas are huge and very... More

I don't typically write reviews, however, Villas Hermosas is far from typical. The area of Santa Teresa is beautiful and somewhat remote with long empty beaches, surfing, fishing, 4-wheeling, hiking, snorkeling... And although the area is nothing short of spectacular what really made the trip great was the resort and its wonderful staff. My wife and I along with 4... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay last week at Villas Hermosas in Santa Teresa. They have a great set up for families as well as couples. Their location 6 km north of Malpais is a real advantage if you want to escape the dust and the noise of Malpais. They are just yards away from a beautiful long sandy... More

My wife and I spent 10 days at Villas Hermosas in 09. Great place, awesome view from the honeymoon villa. The staff was terrific. Just the place to chill and recharge your batteries. Surfed every morning at sunrise, had a big breakfast at the poolside rancho (thanks, Kristy) hit the hammock and surfed some more each afternoon. We heard there... More
