“Home Away From Home!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We LOVED staying at Villa Hermosa with our 3 children, ages 5, 7 and 9, as we explored the area in and around La Fortuna. You get two for one here- a great place to stay (lots of space for the kids to explore and swim!) and the best part is that Wendy knows SO much about the Arenal area so you get your own personal trip advisor!
We were so grateful for her suggestions about the best places to take our kids that when we went on to our next destination, we missed her advice!
She had our coffee ready for us each morning, the food was great, and the place was really clean. We also liked that it was on a back road (yes, it was bumpy but so are the rest of the roads in Costa Rica!), so it wasn't near the busy town and it wasn't touristy. We had a little Honda Elantra and it was fine..no need for the 4 wheel drive. We felt completely safe there. My son and I walked to the little store not far down the road from Villa Hermosa and met some of her neighbors along the way (gotta speak Spanish if you want to talk to them, though!) If we ever went back to Costa Rica, we would without a doubt stay here again!
