My wife and I loved the hotel. Amazing Honeymoon cabana. Fantastic breakfast. World class service. The beach is beautiful and the location is perfect. We stayed 12 days and were sad to leave

If you're considering a trip to Costa Rica, this is the place to be! VH sits right on one of the best beaches on the Pacific Coast. Great for relaxing, snorkeling or surfing. Brad and Tara (the owners) know how to make you feel at home and get the most out of your experience in CR. I will undoubtedly be...

Getting there is not fun. We flew into Tambor and rented at car. The roads are the worst roads on the planet Earth. I thought that there was no way that this could be for real. Potholes from hell in the middle of a rainstorm. We arrived at Villas Hermosas after dark in the rain and mud. Could this really...

We had a great stay at Villas Hermosas in August 2010. The owners, Brad and Tara, made our stay so fun and comfortable. We loved being right on the beach and Brad and Tara organizing our activities for us (surf lessons, ATV tour by Brad, Ziplining). Our wedding was amazing, right in front of the beach at sunset. The staff...

I don't want Brad and Tara to get inflated ego (their modesty is the key to their success), but the fact is that they run one of the most wonderful hotels I've ever been to. Our family has been to VH six times and counting. Things just get better and better, even if this July was wetter and wetter! To...

Villas hermosas was well named. These villas are absolutely beautiful. They are run by Brad and Tara, who are the best hosts and owners of this property. They treat their guests as family.

Perfect. Brad & Tara have built a destination like no other. Our boys, 5, 7, & 9, did not want to leave, nor did I. We chose Hermosas largely on their Trip Advisor ratings. You guys were right. The beach is secluded with only a few other souls to share it with. You can walk for an hour without speaking...
