My husband and I stayed at Vista Hermosa for a week. All our needs were meet including a transport from Libera Airport. Javier was our driver and guide. What a wonderful way to see the country. Flora and fauna were pointed out, and we stopped to see Howler Monkeys hanging from trees. Judy and Javier welcome you with cold beverages,...

My friend and I stayed in Costa Rica for 3 weeks, and our 1 week at Vista Hermosa was definitely the most relaxing. We did not lift a finger. All meals were cooked for us and prepared however we wanted them. Javier and Judy were at our service all hours of the day. Cold, refreshing water to drink all through...

My only regret is for this review to have taken almost a year to write. :( My husband and I spent 8 days here in April 2013. We had an absolutely fabulous, spectacular time.

Beautiful hotel set in pretty grounds, with a decent-sized pool. Comfortable beds and pleasant bathrooms with shower etc. Plenty of towels. Food was excellent, best steak I have ever had, all freshly prepared each evening. Reasonably priced food and drinks. Gentle dogs in residence to accompany you on walks to the beach, if you wish. Fans and air-conditioning are provided...

This place is one of those little gems you only find once in awhile. The staff is amazing and wait on your every need. The owner Judy is wonderful, straight forward and genuine. If you are looking to relax away, from the city, with all the comforts of home but without chores, this is the place! Cheers -

We loved this place! If you are looking for a place to unwind and relax, this is it. You won't find a noisy bar scene because you are up and away from it all. Its a very short walk to the beach where we saw a ton of wildlife including monkeys. Judy is wonderful and knowledgeable and the meals we...

“Ask Judy about the romantic private pool set up in the rear house with poolside dinner. It costs a bit more (and may be be tough in the high season) but it the best thing you can do for you and your loved one!! It's a great value!!”
