Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • The view, the location and the quiet setting make is 5-stars

    "The Sunset House has a spectacular view, great proximity to conveniences in Playas del Coco (i.e. the nice supermarket and veggie/fruit market), and is in a very quiet private and secure residential neighborhood. We really enjoyed the pool from sunrise to sunsets (and what a sunset it is!). The kitchen is well equipped. We had some minor problems with the dish washer leaking and the Manager had that fixed. We grilled out a lot, and if you plan to as well be sure to check to see if you have a full gas tank for the grill. Ours ran out and it was a Sunday so we had to wait for a refill. The neighbor was away and their dog was left out and yelped incessantly one night through. Hopefully you won't have to suffer through that. We hope to visit the Sunset House again soon. Our three-year old refers to it as "our new house"... what more is there to say than that!"

  • Clean, comfortable, fun

    "Our family (including two kids ages 7 & 9) had a great time in Playa Hermosa. There are so many places to visit on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and we fell in love with Playa Hermosa. The views and the beach are outstanding especially since the water is a bay with few waves; the water felt like a bath. The rental was very comfortable with A/C included which was not standard in our rentals. You definitely need a car to stay here with many things in walking distance but the distances are more than 10-15 minutes. Great restaurants around and many options for adventures. We used Tico Tours. We had a great time and did not want to leave after our week's stay."

  • Perfect family vacation house

    "We just returned from a week at Casa Colinas and wish we were still there! We are a family of five with kids ages 3, 7 and 9. My wife's parents came along as well. This house was two master suites, two kitchens, two beautiful patios and amazing views of Playa Hermosa and the Papagayo Peninsula from all around the house. The neighborhood is secure, quiet and filled with beautiful homes through winding, hilly streets. There is an abundance of wildlife right outside the property. While we were there we saw green and black iguanas, howler monkeys, parakeets, thrushes, vultures, cormorants and many other birds. There is a handy sheet to help identify the fauna. Playa Hermosa is a great beach. It's long and there is about 50 meters of sand from the water to the trees so it never feels crowded. The waves vary from very gentle to moderate body surfing. We booked several tours (snorkeling and Palo Verde boating) with Louis on the beach. He's from New Orleans, but is Costa Rican by heritage and took good care of us. He's just setting up his business and didn't have a business card yet, but you'll see him down by the beach chatting with everyone. Dennis and Eric were very attentive with the property management company and took care of everything we needed very quickly. You hear about "tico time" but Eric and Dennis were punctual and thorough and communicated proactively with us. We hired Johana to cook for us two times and really enjoyed the chicken, gallo pinto and fresh pescado (dorado) she prepared for us for a very reasonable price. We'll be back to Costa Rica for sure and will look to stay at Casa Colinas again soon!"

  • Slice of Heaven!

    "Wow! What an amazing girls trip in Playa Hermosa! The views from every inch of this beautiful villa were breathtaking. The owners were so prompt and generous with suggestions and information about their favorite sights, restaurants, tours, beaches, etc. Laura at Milargro was like a family to us! She provided us "Beck and Call" service beyond any rental company that I have dealt with. I have rented over 50 homes all over the world through VRBO and this home was spectacular for our party of 4 ladies! We each had our own bedroom and tons of space to spread out, relax and spend sunsets out by the pool or the rooftop terrace. Bernal and Lilliana at Tico Tours provided private tours for us with amazing guides. We had so much fun with all of them at Tico. It was all first class- the restaurants, the volcano tours, natural steaming mud baths, private massages at the villa, chef services from Rocio, great diving, day trip to Nicaragua, Palo Verde National Park and river tour, Miravalles Waterfalls, etc. We saw 3 types of monkeys, countless species of birds, iguanas everywhere, baby crocodiles, etc. We cannot wait to return! Pura Vida!"

Playa Hermosa Travel Tips

Picture Perfect Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

For anyone looking for a small beach town vacation in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica, Playa Hermosa beach rentals will be perfect! Situated along the northwest coast of the country, Playa Hermosa resorts offer plenty of fun in the sun and surf. Located just 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport, planning vacations in Costa Rica has never been easier when you choose Playa Hermosa as your destination!

Playa Hermosa Resorts Offer Quiet Serenity

In Spanish, “hermosa” means “beautiful” so the town is aptly named. Playa Hermosa beach rentals line the gray sanded beaches and are situated between two spectacular mountains. Surrounded by the more populated beaches of Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa resorts offer privacy and lots of quiet relaxation. The water even reflects this as the waves here are much more serene than surrounding areas, making Playa Hermosa ideal for swimming and splashing rather than surfing and sporting.

National Parks Are a Must-see During Vacations in Costa Rica

You simply cannot plan vacations in Costa Rica without a visit to some of the many national parks in the country. In fact, quite a few are located rather close to many Playa Hermosa beach rentals so the trip will not be difficult. Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Santa Rosa National Park, and Palo Verde National Park are all worth a visit. If you want to view local wildlife (monkeys, jaguars, tropical birds, and more) up close and personal, this is your chance!

Laid-back Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

The atmosphere surrounding Playa Hermosa resorts is very laid-back. And that is what vacations in Costa Rica should be--ultimately relaxing. The country offers the opportunity to escape it all in a lush, tropical setting surrounded by oceans, beaches, and mountains. A trip to Playa Hermosa will cleanse the mind, body, and soul, making you ready for anything when you return home!
