First impressions were very good – we turned up a little early and were shown to our villa – the maid was still cleaning but Brad let us put our bags in and then we went to lunch. We were recommended a few restaurants and decided to go to Rancho burger bar about 3km away – very nice and priced...

Costa Rica has become quite the "in place" to travel. And if you are looking to stay at an Americanized luxury, full-service resort this is not your place. IT IS BETTER! MUCH BETTER! In some ways Villas Hermosas is more similar to a bed and breakfast. It is a small resort with 3 huge family villas and 1 honeymoon villa....

Even with the amazing reviews this property has received, our trip to Villas Hermosas exceeded our expectations. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the service from the owners and staff is unparalleled. Tara seems like an old friend as she welcomes you with genuine enthusiasm and extensive familiarity with this exquisite area of the Nicoya Pennisula. Her recommendations for our...

This was our third visit to Villas Hermosas (and if we're lucky, it won't be our last!); we can't seem to stay away! I agree whole-heartedly with all of the other reviews except for one who rated the sleep quality as a 3. Really??? One of the things we look forward to at VH is the wonderful sleep that we...

Villas Hermosas! Wow, what a great family vacation spot. From the email exchange to confirm dates, detailed and thoughtful instructions on how to get there, to our final moments there. Everything was perfect. The house was comfortable and clean. The pool with waterfall, my daughters favorite spot. The beach lovely, clean and easy to swim. Honest restaurant recommendations. Kristi and...

I almost want to write something bad to keep the hoards away from this great place. Very spacious villas, nice grounds, right on a beautiful beach. I think what really makes it are the hosts, Brad and Tara, who manage to strike just the right balance between being pleasant and friendly without being overbearing or intrusive. I would guess that...

My husband and I stayed at Villas Hermosas with another couple in early February 2011. It couldn't have been a greater trip. We shared one of the beautiful villas which was spacious, clean and comfy.
