“Pre-Wedding Bliss”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Charley and I had a wonderful surprise driving up from San Jose to La Fortuna and Arenal. We chose to stay at the intimate Villa Hermosa located right next to Springs Resort & Hot Springs. This is truly an amazing place to stay. Dave cooked us an amazing breakfast each morning, we hung out in the ranchito which had the most amazing views from the hammocks and the pool was really refreshing on hot days. Even though we had all of the creature comforts of home, we didnt even use the TV or DVD player. This was a wonderfully serene paradise, from the pool, amazing tropical garden maze, ranchito, game shack with the pool table, darts by rancho and the lovely owners, made it extra special! Thanks again for a wonderful stay during our honeymoon. Adam and Charley.

“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed April 14, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I stayed here with my husband and 5 1/2 year old son in April 2012. This is a truly wonderful alternative to the hotels in the area. The pictures on the Villa Hermosa website are an accurate depiction of the property but, honestly, I think it looks even better in person. The bedroom area is quite large - even with adding the second bed for my son it was still quite spacious. The bathroom and shower are also quite large. The property is well appointed - the bed is comfy and the sheets and towels are soft. The outdoor living area is wonderful and we used the kitchen while there. You will need a rental car to get to this place. It is about 25 minutes outside the town of La Fortuna and is in a residential area. (If you are going to be driving anywhere in Costa Rica, a GPS is a MUST.) The pool area is also quite large and is well kept. The gardens are more extensive than I would have guessed and there is a new area in the gardens called a 'Ranchito" which has two hammocks and is perfect for relaxing. Dave and Wendy were excellent hosts, had plenty of suggestions and made us a great breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend, especially if you don't mind staying a little outside of town. (Note: there is not much I would recommend that is within walking distance of La Fortuna). The only thing I didn't realize is that there is no A/C, but there are plenty of fans and the evenings cooled off enough that it was never as issue (and my husband is a big fan of air conditioning).
