“A perfect honeymoon!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We found Vista Hermosa on Trip Advisor after we read some bad reviews about the hotel we had originally reserved. Since we were traveling during the rainy season, they were running specials, which was very appealing. What really hooked us though, was talking on the phone with Judy and having a package put together specifically for us! It did rain the first couple of days that we were there, so it was hard to schedule a couple of our excursions. Judy and Javier came up with some alternatives and it was perfect. We went kayaking one day instead of hiking, and still got to go horseback riding and zip lining. All of the food was just amazing. I read a review about Javier's banana pancakes so requested that one morning for breakfast - delicious! Get nachos or chips and guacamole too - the chips are home made! Our dinners ranged from chicken quesadilla to short ribs, to mahi mahi. Everything was great! If we wanted a snack or drink, it was no problem at all. Oh, and they had been trying to make fried oreos at the time so we got some - we ended up ordering them 2 of the nights we were there. We wanted a honeymoon that was a perfect blend of relaxing and getting to know/appreciate the country itself and we couldn't have done it any better. Since we were staying for 7 days, Judy suggested the Arbol Solatario for us which I really appreciate. It gave us a lot of privacy that you don't expect at a B&B, and we had plenty of room to relax by ourselves if we wanted as well. The B&B is beautiful and you can completely trust Judy and Javier to give you a taste of the real Costa Rica. By the time we left, we were already thinking about what we wanted to see on our next trip there. We would definitely recommend it and will visit again!

Room Tip: Arbol Solatario is great for privacy!!

Where do I begin !!!
This is a wonderful "hotel" to stay! I know they are listed as a B&B but it feels like a 5 star hotel! Just beautiful,very well maintained grounds and pool! Beautiful and very clean rooms! Everything is just immaculate! It really feels like a little piece of heaven when you're there!
The owner Judy and Javier are delightful! They are so accommodating with everything,tours,things to do,just name it! They are very knowledgeable and they have a great sense of humor!
Breakfast was delicious,dinner was superb,you could have whatever you wanted!
Once you get there you just don't want to leave!
Judy and Javier make you feel very welcome the minute you arrive!
We did a tour on ATV's! Highly recommended with Judy! Really good fun and you get to see places you otherwise wouldn't ! We loved it!
If I would go back to Costa Rica,I would definitely stay at the beautiful Vista Hermosa! It's a real gem!
This place is better then most hotels you will stay at! When you look at the pictures on their website,that's exactly what you see when get there! Which is a big plus I think!
Once you've stayed there,you will always have very fond memories when you get back home!
Judy and Javier we loved staying at your beautiful place and we absolutely adore you!
Thank you for everything!

After a long day on the road we where welcomed with a drink, and even the option for diner. The next day we had a quad tour enjoying the locals and scenery. Every night we had a wunderfull diner made bij Javier, and entertained by Judy. Both wonderfull hosts for whom nothing is to much . When you realy want to relax ir have a active vacation there B&B is the perfect place to use as a base location. Thanks again Cristian.

We were at vista hermosa for 2 nights. In the minute we arrived we felt like home. The room was amazing, every item was picked carefully and with great taste. The garden and the siting area are perfect place to relax and chat.
But above all, Judi and Javier make the experience something else. They are extremely friendly, helping in every issue and really carrying for their guests. Sitting and chatting with them was a huge fun. The food that we ate at the hotel was super delicious ( ask for Judi's hamburger and Javier's banana pancakes).
For conclusion, you must visit this gorgeous place!
