Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • Wonderful vacation spot

    "This guesthouse was perfect for our 9 days in Costa Rica. Nan and Paul (the owners) are right next door and provided us with information on trips, restaurants and activities. Nan and Paul are also wonderful trustworthy people who really care about their guests. The guesthouse is clean, spacious and a perfect location to sit outside in the mornings and listen to (and see) birds, monkeys and sounds of the jungle. We felt right at home. We would suggest renting a car because this location is a great jumping off point to other "playas," towns, hikes and adventures (which Nan and Paul will help you choose). We rented from POAS and they delivered the car to us for no extra charge (and they are right across the street from the airport for the trip back). Kayaking, walking on the beach, good restaurants, and swimming in the ocean are all right there. We visited Playa Panama, Tamarindo, Guaticil, Arenal and had great experiences at each. We would recommend Roberto's (Playa Hermosa), Mangrove (Playa Panama) and Father Roosters as great restaurants - all on the beaches. We wouldn't have found them without Nan and Paul. Can't say enough about the wonderful experiences we had that were launched from this guesthouse. Be sure to go. Our only regret is that we didn't stay long enough, another 4 or 5 days would have been even more perfect. We would highly recommend this guesthouse and Nan and Paul as owners."

  • Amazing vacation home!

    "We had a spectacular vacation in Costa Rica! We traveled with another couple and it was the first time to Costa Rica for all of us (and definitely won't be the last). The condo was in excellent condition - very clean, included every appliance and utensil you could think of and was just as impressive in person as the photos and description. Waking up every morning to that spectacular view was one of the highlights. We probably spent more time outside on the patio than we did inside. Daryl, the property manager, was so pleasant and welcoming. His knowledge of the area, attractions, restaurants and shops was most appreciated. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Hermosa or the Coco area. We were so sad to leave but will definitely visit again!"

  • 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."

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "Had a great, relaxing and wonderful stay for 2 weeks at this well maintained, clean and beautiful villa. We did not have a car but Carlos who manages Noreen's place arranged transportation from and to the airport. He also arranged transportation and golfing for my husband to be able to play. This place has absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your stay so enjoyable. What a view of the Ocean from the deck! The grocery store, beach and a few great restaurants are withing walking distance. Jonathan, the General Manager at Ginger's arranged free transportation to and from the restaurant. Good food! Bocelli's has excellent wood fired pizza. We also went there for dinner another night and had pasta. Very good. Fishing if you like that is excellent. We went there one day and caught tons of red snapper and my husband caught a 50 lb. Amberjack. So we did cook a few days at the villa. This place has everything from minature golf, a movie theatre with up to date movies and also other plays etc. There is always something going on there. The pool is great along with the breakfast and lunch that is available there. There is also a new sports bar that opens at 5 p.m. with great chicken wings among other items to order, music and special events there also. I actually did not want to leave! Thank you Noreen for a wonderful vacation. We actually are thinking about going back next year."
