Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • 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."

  • GREAT place for a MEMORABLE vacation

    "This is my first review in this site. I have to state a few facts before hand. I am a world traveler due to my job and spend over 150 days a year on hotels in every continent. Likewise, our family usually takes trips twice a year to different countries around the world, always staying in houses or resorts. However, this was our first time renting a house in Costa Rica, where home is for us. I have to say that my expectations were quite low, as I had not vacationed in this area, plus I had left this trip to the very last minute, with Semana Santa (Easter week) on top, making it difficult to find any place available. However, we struck gold! We contacted David (owner) and Jodi (manager), and were able to make a memorable vacation, with the help of Gary (the local house keeper), who is a GREAT person to have a chat with and pointing on what to do locally. Location - The house is located on a mid-hilltop, with views to the ocean (less than a mile away), with lush vegetation around it (great for the monkeys that come and visit). The directions are very easy to get there, and it is centrally located to everything. Rooms - The rooms are great!!! Each with individual fans and A/C and the house with a master A/C, with multiple fans. They are large rooms, with very comfortable beds, great linens, each room with its private big bathroom and big closets! What else to ask for? Amenities - The house includes a series of perks like a FAST internet connection, Magic Jack, Roku, DVD player, 2 TV (one in the main bedroom and one in the living room) with Satellite TV, outside speakers, and large couches to watch TV... Outside - Obviously, the pool is a great attraction and it was a great one, with spectacular sunset views and just great for lounging. But the outside table, umbrella and chairs, made it the perfect location for food, drinks and unwinding.. or falling asleep in the sun tanning chairs (under a great shadow from a beautiful native tree)! Cooking - I love cooking and this is by far one of the best houses we have been to in terms of all utensils. We had great pots and pans (every size, for every style), great granite countertops, glass cooktop, great knives/cookware, and overall a great selection of plates to serve your food in, that really made it kind of special in terms of a "vacation" feel. A great dining table, topped it for family gathering. Overall - This house far exceeded our expectations, and we will definitely come back."

  • Fabulous Villa in Beautiful Playa Hermosa!

    "We had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Camelia - Sam and Camelia are amazing hosts and tended to our every need! The villa has absolutely breathtaking scenery, is beautifully appointed inside and out and situated perfectly to easily access all that Hermosa has to offer. We couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy our first visit to Costa Rica! Thanks also to Antonio, Jose and Stephanie for their help and friendship during our stay. Sam and Camelia, thank you so much for your hospitality - loved every minute and can't wait to return someday!"

  • Homey and well appointed villa

    "My husband myself and our 14yr old son stayed at Chris's lovely villa for 10 days. I was reluctant to book a VRBO as we had a previous bad experience. This was a very positive experience from start to finish. A welcome reprieve from our long cold Canadian winter. The villa was exactly as described and more. We lived mostly on the large patio, eating all of our meals outside. The plunge pool was fabulous. We made good use of the blender for margaritas/pina coladas and the new barbeque. Separate AC in every room was a nice touch. Very quiet location at the end of the street. We used the resort pools and enjoyed having cocktails watching the sunset at the restaurant. We did not partake in the meals at the resort.. The trolley to the beach was much appreciated as it is a steep walk up the hill in 38C. We spent most of our vacation enjoying Playa Hermosa and the villa. Great beach for swimming and boogie boarding in the waves. Our son spent many hours perfecting his skim boarding. Favorite memories will be watching the sunset with 2 for 1 cocktails from Roberto's. We also had a few meals there which we thoroughly enjoyed. Look for Adolfo/Alonso (brothers) to take you out to the "island" for a up-close and personal snorkelling experience. Chris's referral to Avispas Adventures was much appreciated. Amy and her crew were very accommodating, prompt and professional. They picked us up at the airport as promised only 20 minutes to the villa. Carlos took us to Playa Grande for a day of surfing. Beautiful never-ending surf and sand. Beware there is no shade here. We also had an enjoyable evening dining at Ginger's. I would suggest to do most food shopping at Coco Beach at the new supermarket, very nice and everything you will need including inexpensive boogie boards and skim boards. The grocery store in P. Hermosa is OK for basics, we found it to be pricey. We were looking for a relaxing beach vacation and this is exactly what we had. We did not see the green/jungle Costa Rica as seen in pictures as it was the end of the dry season. We plan to go back to see the "jungle/adventure" Costa Rica we have heard and seen so much in the rainy season Thanks again Chris"
