"Our family of four stayed in the Hermosa Heights Villa for a week trip to Costa Rica. Located just 25 minutes from the airport, it is very convenient. Playa Hermosa is just down the road and you can walk if you like. Playa del Coco is just a short 8 minute car ride or $10 cab ride and it has has tons of restaurants, bars, shops, and a large beach. Playa Potrero and Flamingo is just 1.15 hours and Tamarindo is about 1.75 hours by car.
The villa is large with a great deck and view of the ocean. All amenities and A/C is included! Recommend renting a car if you want to see the coast - very easy from airport. Would stay there again. Owner is very nice and responsive and the property management team were excellent and prompt."

"We stayed at Ibis #8 for 2 weeks, from Jan 4-18th. As other reviewers have pointed out, the unit itself is very well appointed with high-end appliances, sturdy furniture and all of the modern conveniences one would expect from an upscale condo. The condo itself does not have any amenities onsite (pool, gym, etc.) - these are located directly across the street at the Langosta Beach Club. Ibis guests have full access; the club is also features one of the nicer restaurants in the area. This is the quieter, more scenic section of Tamarindo beach, which may appeal to those seeking a slower pace.
Sebastian (the concierge) was very friendly and approachable. He always greeted us with a warm smile and was great with our kids. Bob handled a few issues that came up and he took care of them promptly. The security/groundskeepers/housekeepers were all very friendly and helpful. One of them kindly fixed a broken strap on our luggage, which we really appreciated. The crew at the Langosta Beach Club were also very fun and energetic.
Some might find the location a bit remote (you will need to drive or walk 5-7 mins to get to Tamarindo, down a busy dirt road with no sidewalks) but we liked the fact that it was quiet and relatively secluded. We were a bit disappointed with the dust and road noise that came from the adjacent Langosta Road. Apparently a paving project is imminent, so the dust issue may be addressed soon. Nevertheless, if you are a light sleeper, I would suggest looking for a unit facing the rear of the building, which faces the Tamarindo Preserve.
The unit boasts comfy beds, a pull-out sofa sleeper, nice plumbing fixtures, tasteful decorating, modern appliances and three separate decks. The WiFi is not particularly strong - barely enough for Netflix, fine for e-mail and social networking. There is no VoIP line in the unit, so you will need to rely on mobile or Skype for making calls.
Overall, this unit served us well and we were not disappointed. We would recommend it to others, seeking a quieter location in an small & modern building."

"We found this condo the perfect place for us. It really is ideal for two couples and we loved everything about it. The ground floor was actually nice and convenient to the pool and BBQ (which we used frequently). We didn't miss being on the top floor having an ocean view. We felt almost like we had a private pool as it was never busy, we always managed to find lounge chairs when we needed. The condo itself is extremely spacious and well equipped (aside from perhaps a few kitchen tools and another lounge chair on the patio) and we found it more than adequate for our 12 day stay. We really liked the location in the area as well, close to all the beautiful beaches up and down the coast as well as the activities we wanted to do and the towns of Tamarindo and Santa Clara weren't too far away. I enjoyed all the wildlife we saw (and heard) but a bird feeder would have thrilled me to enjoy watching with my morning coffee. Barbara was always willing to answer questions and make suggestions and the grounds were immaculate (thanks Rudy). We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a home base to enjoy Costa Ricas beauty and culture from. Iquana, Gekko's, Birds, Dogs, Howler monkeys, Lizards, and Giant Grasshoppers made exploring the area around the condo lots of fun (not to mention the amazing, diverse beaches closeby)"
