Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • Spacious for Sure and the View is Stunning

    "Really enjoyed our nine nights at Casa Colinas. Private areas make for a comfortable place to host friends, as we did. The pool area is beautiful, attended by a huge, mellow iguana and a friendly young monkey one morning. As mentioned in other reviews, Eric is very attentive and having Yohanna come and cook was an excellent experience. Dennis was extremely accommodating with our arrangements. Maybe because the house is so large, it was not quite and clean upon arrival as one might like, as I repostioned the TV and the floor thee was a bit of a mess. We also hosted a minor invasion of fire ants and a scorpion. We took these in stride. We would not want to have heard that major pesticides were applied, so taking care of these was no problem. This can occur anywhere in CR. There are 24 hour security patrols and the gate attendants seem cheerful. The dramatic entry foyer is a huge solar furnace which caused us to use AC more than we would have otherwise. Could use at least one sharp knife in kitchen. Be aware that the location is on a steep hill, which is a long, arduous walk from the Hermosa beach, but a short drive. If you have 4x4 absolutely do not miss nearby beach Playa Penca, which has white Caribbean-like sand, aqua water and nice snorkeling. Recommended."

  • Amazing home on the beach!

    "I truly can't say enough about this house. Right on the beach in Playa Hermosa, it was the perfect home for my family over the holidays. Walking distance to a few restaurants, great location for day excursions, truly an amazing and once in a life time experience. I have stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world and this was probably one of my favorite vacations ever. If you are looking for an authentic Costa Rica experience I highly recommend working with PEXS and staying at the Blue Villa. Dali and Freddie (the live in caretakers) made our vacation even better with their in home meals and catering to our every need. Maria, our concierge, helped us with every detail of our vacation and everything was more than perfect. Beautiful, relaxing, and we will be back!"

  • Beautiful view in a great location.

    "Thank you to the owner for sharing your home with us. And thank you to Bernie for making sure we were comfortable. The Sunset House is in a perfect location to explore beaches and the surrounding towns. The pool is wonderful and has a spectacular view of the ocean. The location is quiet, private and felt very safe. Everything you need is available at the home. We shopped at local grocery store, cooked at the home, ate a few restaurants, went to several beaches, did a half day catamaran cruise, snorkeled and relaxed. Excellent time. The only issue was ants, which was not unexpected and with Bernie's help were not a problem Bernie was always available by phone, and he checked back in with us by e-mail and in person. Again, this home is in a great location and as a spectacular view. Our adult granddaughter was with us. The pool was icing on the cake for her. It was an unforgettable trip."

  • Excellent Villa

    "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."
