Very nice and relaxing atmosphere, extremely nice staff. The rooms and the bar are made with love. Judy and her staff do everything to please you and make the stay unforgettable. Without doubt the cleanest room on our entire trip. A real oasis on the peninsula of Nicoya!

Okay...I'm finally getting around to submitting this review. It's been a couple of months now since we were down in Costa Rica. Vista Hermosa is such an awesome place that even after a couple of months, I want to make sure the world knows all about it! My wife and I stayed here for a short stay to celebrate 15...

This Bed and Breakfast is a little gem. Very clean, well maintained, and perfect if you are looking for a quiet vacation. It is far from the town but there are tours that you may take to different sites. Judy was very attentive, and helpful during our stay. If you want to be close to the beach or to a...

The place is well kept, the the yard is beautiful, the little swimming pool is sparkling clean. The breakfasts were always scrambled eggs with cheap,...

Hola Janos, I would like to thank you for your review. I appreciate all comments to insure improvements on our part. Unfortunately I cannot address our location.

This spot is perfect if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. There is not much in Tambor but Judy offers excursions of just about anything your heart desires. I went on a gorgeous horseback ride on the beach. Judy is a fabulous cook and the food was always fresh and delicious. Judy...

We went to Vista Hermosa for dinner on two occasions during our stay in Tambor. Judy and Javier were great hosts and Judy provided us with two fantastic meals. On our second visit, we expected the same menu, but no, it was different, which was a nice surprise! It was evident by the quality of our food served, that Judy...

Be careful when you book this B&B, the description on the website doesn't match with what you get. We booked this trip through Expedia and we were supposed to get a private room with bathroom, living room and kitchen. When we arrived, after a 4 hours drive with Javier and different stops at groceries stores in order to buy what...
