I just love this hotel. It is right on the beach, in the forrest and has such beautiful gardens. The food is wonderful, the rooms fantastic and the staff super friendly and helpful. It is one of my favorite hotels here in Costa Rica. The howler monkeys hang out in the trees, the beach is peaceful and safe, the iguanas...

........... was just great. The hotel is about 40+ minutes by shuttle from Liberial airport. If you get to Liberia after dark, arrange for a shuttle instead of driving in the dark on your first night. It's easier and you can have a rental delivered the next day or thereafter. If you plan on using a lot of back roads...

Why I'm giving this hotel a 3 instead of a 2 when I say that I won't be back? Location location location as they are right by the ocean. Initial impression was awesome as the first thing that they give you when you arrive is fruit drinks with ice. We hated having to wear bracelets our entire 3 day stay....

This is a quiet, very nice resort. The restaurant was deserted but had exceptional food. You have to eat their surf and turf at least once during your stay. Our only complaint was that our room needed about $250 of repairs to make it really up to par. There was a cracked light switch cover, etc. The howler monkey over...

This is a lovely resort on the Pacific Ocean. The staff is exceptioal, the food is good, everything is spotless, the rooms are spacious and the views are perfect. It's not to be missed. The beach is very clean-a few shells and enough wave action to be pleasant fun. It's ideal for children.

We splurged on an ocean view room and it was totally worth it. We were right on the beach with a big balcony and hot tub. The beach was ideal with warm, shallow water that you could wade it for hours. Very few waves or rocks. Service was great and the food was tasty, not as good as Gingers restaurant,...

Places for Breakfast in Coco and Hermosa that are good value and in a great location are sadly lacking. This hotel restaurant meets both of those criteria: c5000 a head for a buffet breakfast on the beach in a very nice restaurant; attentive wait staff, plenty of fruit and granola as well as the usual cooked breakfast and waffles.

Visited 3 nights at end of week trip to Costa Rica. Great oceanfront suite, staff and meals. Quiet beach. Monkees over the pool were entertaining but keep the staff busy cleaning. Had good massage in room. Would definately recommend and stay here again.

Just got back from a one night stay at Hotel Playa Hermosa, where we stayed the night before leaving Costa Rica via Liberia airport. The hotel is very conveniently located to the airport (approx 25 mins away), and is definitely a step above the Hilton Garden Inn if you prefer to spend your first or last night in Costa Rica...
