I stayed at the Marea Brava Hotel in Hermosa, Costa Rica for almost 4 weeks Oct-Nov. 2013.
The American owner, Jamey Harmon and his staff were just wonderful. Their hospitality and
desire to serve were simply at an elite level.
The room rate was super for the off season. Keyner is bilingual and helped a great deal with the local guests as well as English speaking guests. Karla could only speak Spanish, but her welcome with a warm smile and good eye contact made it easy to work with as she found someone to help with communication. Both provided a plethora of suggestions and information
regarding things to do and places to go.
Located right on the beach, the pool was clean and family friendly, especially on weekends. On occasion there were only a few couples at the pool. The poolside bar was run by Tom, Jamey's brother.
The suites were large, clean and perfect for multiple guests or families.
Marea Brava is a hidden jewel for any traveler or surfing enthusiast.
