This was our 4th trip to Costa Rica and our second trip to Villas Hermosas. We would never consider staying anywhere else. Brad and Tara are the most amazing hosts, and they have created the closest thing to paradise on earth in their little section of the world. The villas are spacious and well-appointed, but life in Santa Teresa/Mal Pais is amazingly simple. I'm not going to write a long review here, because I wrote a very long review last year about how amazing this place is...and it just keeps getting better. Don't come here is you want a scene...or a 5 star all inclusive...or a pool butler...or glitz...you're not going to find it here. What you will find is a beautiful property, on a gorgeous stretch of beach, with the most laid back, zen, amazing owners, and a lovely, spacious, well-appointed beach house in a place where time forgot, BUT, somehow, has amazing restaurants. What I also love about Villas Hermosa are the "repeaters" like ourselves. Upon our return, there was one family who also stayed last year at the same time, and another, who was there for part of our visit. It feels like a reunion when you meet up again, and see all of the kids playing and having fun. Jeremy and Monica...Brad and Tara's kids, are just so sweet, well-mannered and ridiculously cute. Oh...and one last note...my husband and daughter did Brad's quad tour...AGAIN...and they're still talking about how much fun it was...AGAIN! If you're still sitting on the fence about booking this place...we'll....I'm glad, because I don't want other people to know about our little secret, but you'll be missing out on one of the best vacations on the planet if you pass this one by!
