Ocean side views, nice homes, great people. Much to see, nice weather, tons of shopping. Stunning views of Volcanos and high peaks. Many many monkees to take pictures of and interact with.

We visited Playa Hermosa essentially to have a close overnight from the Liberia airport, on our way to places further south. What we found was a gem of a beach, with good restaurants and lodging facilities. The beach is protected and does not have the strong surf break found on other beaches along the Guanacaste peninsula. This makes it very kid friendly, and you see lots of families on the beach. Along the beach, there is pleasant low-scale development, including some good restaurants. Shade trees along the beach provide places to escape the strong sun. The sand is a light charcoal color, more volcanic than shell in origin, but has a pleasant consistency. This is an area that will be subject to some significant new development in the near future, so go now to experience its secluded charm!

This beach is lovely but too rough for swimming during high tide. The jungle is right next to the beach with palm trees and lots of green. The beach is pretty empty and you can walk a long way without seeing many people. We came during the rainy season in May so it may be more crowded in high season. Venders sell fruit and delicious fish right on the beach.

Playa Hermona it's one of the most wonderful and relax beach of Guanacaste, it is in a strategic place because is close enough to the Playas del Coco where it is a good place party and good places to have good food.

This Hotel & Resort was excellent. My niece had her wedding here. The staff was delightful. Our room, a junior suite, was clean and space was plentiful. The pool was beautiful as was the beach. The food was very good with lots to choices on the menu. Our family included children, teens and elders and they all had the same wonderful experience.
