This place will literally take you're breath away. From any of their villas they have to offer you'll be amazed. I stayed in the honeymoon suite off the beach and it was amazing. You can see the ocean and hear the waves from the suite. It's cozy but not at all small. The owners are relaxed and very informative, extremely... More

This was our third time in Santa Teresa and the first time we stayed at Villas Hermosas. It was definitely the best part of our trip. It's very quiet and peaceful here, and a 3-4 minute walk down to the surfing section of Playa Hermosa which is probably the best beginner/intermediate surfing beach in the area. We travelled as a...

My wife and I spent a few nights at Villas Hermosas this past week and in one word; AMAZING! What an incredible property, great owners and staff, and the best doggy hosts ever! Villas Hermosas is a bit out of the way from the main area of Santa Theresa, but trust me, this is a good thing. Only steps from... More

We spent 3 nights here last week! There were 6 of us, 3 adults & 3 kids (14, 5 & 4) in a family villa. What a great place! The villas are nicely appointed. Cold AC, full kitchen, nice patios. We were able to grab some snacks and lunch items from the supermarket to keep the kids happy. Breakfast is... More

We were at Villas Hermosas in 2008. We just returned for the first time since then, and can happily report our complete satisfaction with the accommodations, but especially the people! I can't adequately describe our affection for the people associated with the villas, and the entire community. Thank you for maintaining authenticity!

We had a wonderful time at Villas Hermosas. Location is great, on the beach and a 5 min walk to the main section of the beautiful Playa Hermosa which is great for surfing, long walks, swimming and beautiful sunsets. The villas are a 5 to 10 mins drive from the heart of town so the area is quiet and peaceful... More

I wish I could add something original, but I can think of no superlative or accolade or insightful observation that hasn't already been offered by the reviewers below. In a word, Villas Hermosas is perfection! Look no further.

Six of us - 4 adults and 2 kids 8 & 17 spent a week here in 2 villas during school vacation. We were blown away by the beautiful mile long stretch of beach in front of the property (occupied by maybe only 50 surfers down the beach each day) and the resort itself. The accomadations were modern & spectacular,... More
