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."

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful Condo

    "My husband and I just got back from a 4 night stay in this condominium and it is everything the pictures and write-up show it to be. It is a beautiful unit and the grounds are so well kept. Everything you need is in the unit - full kitchen, plenty of towels, washer and dryer worked great. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The property manager, Corby Smith, was very accommodating. She was there to meet us when we arrived (we did not rent a car but came by shuttle). Made great recommendations on things to do in the area and was available when we had a question. A couple of really good restaurants that are very close are the Restaurant at Villa del Sueno, and Bocelli's Pizza. Also, since we didn't have a car we had to call a taxi a few times and I would recommend Juan Carlos Angulo at phone number 8880-31-66. He is from Playa del Coco just down the beach and was very prompt and knowledgeable of the area. I would also highly recommend the Marlin del Rey sailing/snorkel catamaran tour. It was so much fun and a very good value. Very good visit to Costa Rica."

  • 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"
