After 5 days in Santa Teresa we decided to find a place closer to the Tambor airport in preparation for our flight to the rain forest. A gut feeling told me to check out Vista Hermosa and I was right. Judith's property is about one of the most beautiful properties I've stayed in Costa Rica and I not only travel...

Went on the recommendation of the local Budget car rental agent and....Wow! As predominantly English speaking touristas we didn't expect to find an enclave of familiar culture and nice folks and wonderful home cooked food as this. Nice folks, of course, describes virtually everybody one meets in Costa Rica, and the Vista Hermosa dos not disappoint. We were fortunate enough...

Wonderful out of the way piece of paradise. The food was incredible and Judy was the perfect host(ess). The B&B is absolutely gorgeous, clean, luxurious...a vertical oasis. We highly recommend this to all. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Tambor area.

After a long drive from Monteverde we were sweetly welcomed by Adrian, who is the assistant to the owner of Vista Hermosa, a lovely B&B nestled off the beach at Tambor. Judy, the owner, is a fabulous cook and she is a witty conversationist as well. She handled our tour request and we never wanted for anything. Adrian provides great...

We stumbled upon Vista Hermosa on the internet and couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. Judy is a gracious host: she is helpful, kind, funny, and caring. We stayed at the house overlooking the ocean and it was extremely clean and beautiful. We went on two excursions, snorkeling at Tortuga Island and cheese making, which Judy arranged...

Thank you for your comments. Long story is...You checked in late evening around 8 pm without a reservation after leaving another hotel that you expressed you were completely dissatisfied with. We were happy to accommodate you. You wished to visit the resort in the area. I did insist that you be driven over and did not charge you for that....

We were very pleased at first with Vista Hermosa. Judy and Ernesto greeted us with open arms and were very hospitable. Ernesto stayed professional and friendly for the remainder of our stay and he was absolutely great! However, Judy became very unprofessional and upset with us for asking for walking directions to the beach and Tango Mar. She spoke very...

Judy was just wonderful. The whole experience was perfect. Judy made sure that I was well taken care of - traveling by myself. She helped me navigate problems with currency, and negotiated for me to rent an ATV at a reasonable price for the week. The hotel is clean, relaxing and lovely. And the breakfast/bar were a great addition. I...
