5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Peaceful, clean family hotel that could not have been more accommodating for our group. They handles the arc tours , zip line excursion, and horseback riding and the. Handed is a cocktail I the pool at the end of the day. The view was a tad less than we expected , but the surrounding g walk to the beach made it all worth while. Very clean with great dinners . Enjoy and visit soon .

We can’t say enough about how well we were treated by Judy & Javier at Vista Hermosa B&B. The accommodations were excellent and the staff made us feel very comfortable. From the beautifully decorated and landscaped gardens to the truly excellent meals it far exceeded our expectations. All you had to do is let Judy know what food you enjoy and they will prepare it. We had everything from shrimp scampi to barbequed ribs and the meals were well prepared and delicious! Mingling with the staff and other guests was most enjoyable. Also, it was gratifying to know we could arrange all our activities through Judy or Javier right at the B&B - anything from deep sea fishing to zip-lining was doable. Or you could simply relax in a comfortable chair, with a refreshing drink, and read a good book. Our 8-day stay was so relaxing it was hard to leave. Without any hesitation, we have recommended Vista Hermosa to all our friends, and look forward to a return visit in the future.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the detached suite which contained 2 bedrooms, TV area, kitchen, dining area and laundry...

Staying at Vista Hermosa B&B was a great experience. Judy & Javier really know how to take good care of guests. We took advantage of their expertise and enjoyed a waterfall hike and swim in Montezuma, an ATV tour of the beautiful scenery around Tambor, along with a swim in a local river, a hike through a nature reserve close by, and relaxed at the beach that was a five minute walk from the B&B. We let them know what we were interested in doing and they took care of all the details since we chose not to rent a car to get around. We especially enjoyed the great meals and visiting with other people from around the world and the other friendly staff they employ. While you can tell by their website photos that the B&B looks beautiful, it doesn't do their place justice. You can't tell that the actual bedding is really comfortable, or that the food is locally sourced and delicious. We are still talking about it and wishing we were back in the area.

We stayed at several boutique hotels during our 3 weeks in Costa Rica, and Vista Hermosa became our favourite. Beside excellent room, design and comfy beds and high-quality towels etc the place is a gem in this rural area. But most important- Judy and Javier made us really feel at ease and at home in their company!
After a great breakfast me and my 14yearold left for a day of adventure, and when coming back we were welcomed with drinks, dinner, great company and any help we needed!
We loved the pool, Judy's garden and just hanging around there, and on leaving we really wanted to bring Judy and Javier (and the place) with us! Judy provided us with great advices for the rest of our trip, and Javier put great effort into helping us to go snorkeling.
We arrived and were treated as special guests and left as great friends. Not very many people or places manage to provide you with this comfort!
We will come back!

Having just finished a G Adventures 16 day trip from one coast of Costa Rica to the other, we were ready for a little luxury and Judy and Javier made sure that's what we experienced. The B+B is beautifully decorated, spotless, welcoming and becomes 'home' minutes after your arrival. Judy and Javier are completely focused on your enjoyment, ready to organize anything you want, funny, charming - wonderful hosts. If you want quiet, that's what you get. If you want conversation, travel tips, suggestions, those are at the ready as well. We'll definitely be back and recommend their B+B without reservation. Enjoy!

Our family vacation to Costa Rica was amazing and Judy and Javier were a big part of making our experience so great. From the moment we arrived to Tambor to the minute we left they welcomed us with open arms and made sure the we enjoyed ourselves. Everything was taken care of for us, all we had to do is relax and have a good time.
