Hermosa Bungalows
Reviewed February 29, 2012

We are still having the time of our lives here. The people are incredibly friendly. We have been to Costa Rica many times and find this the best by far. Very safe here, great $8.00 by taxi to go to the charming village of Jaco. On the way you can walk to wonderful restaurants and bars. You can get cabs for $95 back to San Jose.

The bungalows are beautiful and suitable for anyone. They have every convience you can imagine. We cook often but like to wonder to the restuarants every once in awhile. You are steps away from the beach. The beach is dark sand so make sure you bring you flip flops. The water is warm.

This is the perfect place to pamper you and your love ones.

We stayed in newly remodeled #4, right on the beach with an all glass front. We had a wonderful, relaxing trip. We even watched whales from our front porch!! Twinka and Alexandra are great hosts too. Thank you!

Beachfront with all the amenities you would find at home. The pool, the outdoor showers, and the hammocks are wonderful. We stayed in #8 and our friends were in #7. I woke up at sunsrise to surf and could see a sliver of the waves from my kitchen window while brewing fresh Costa Rican coffee I bought in Jaco. Waves were Chest-Head high and clean every morning for a week right out front by the Almond Tree. No crowds in the water and you are 100 feet fron the bungalows.

A ten minute walk to a cool little area where the Backyard Bar & Grill is.(great breakfast, and the place right next to it has cheap dinners. We had fresh caught tuna steaks weith all the fixins for like $8(buy one get one $16) There are a few breakfast places and good spots to eat beachfront and rent surfboards.

The location is perfect. Playa Hermosa is about a 7 minute drive from Jaco. I prefer Hermosa over Jaco because I can escape the energy of Jaco and still be very close to the party.

The Bungalows are situated on a dirt road close to the main road and are very peaceful with no neighbors and hardly any cars passing by. We loved it. At the end of the dirt road about 10 minutes further is a cool Turtle Sanctuary where if you time it right can experience the baby turtles heading out to see.

Our property manager Twinka made recommendations for excursions. We got a discount and did Zip Lines, Croc Tour, Waterfalls, and Manuel Antonio. I loved the waterfall adventure. We went on our own (7 guys). Got directions to a lady's house by car about (45min south) and parked for $5pp. After hiking through cow pastures, ravines, trails in the rainforest for about 30 minutes we came accross an awesome waterfall. We hiked around to the top and took turns Jumping off into deep pools. best time of my life.

This was my second time to Costa Rica and I prefer Playa Hermosa over Tamarindo and recommend the Hermosa Beach Bungalows. You get a lot for a good price and the locals are so nice. During my stay, I considered how I could live there. Pura Vida!! ;)

Room Tip: #7 had a comfortable couch, nice furniture, next to quiet pool and a hammock on the porch. Very Home...
