Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • Amazing place A+

    "This was our fourth stay at this house and it was just amazing once again. Since booking with the owner, everything was spectacular. Our family and friends had a fabulous time, too. The house is wonderful, comfortable and pretty. The manager and the maid were really nice. The pool was beautiful, as always, and now there is a little restaurant at the pool that was awesome for cocktails and food. We love this house, we love Hermosa Palms and we love Playa Hermosa. The sunsets were priceless. ALL WAS PERFECT! Thank you for having us again in your lovely house. We will be back."

  • Playa Perfect

    "Our merry group consisted of 3 adults of considerable age - if not maturity, 3 post-teen kids of a serious nature and my lovely girlfriend, mother of the kids. A real vacation had eluded most of us for awhile and we were ready. An excellent rental home made better by location. Hermosa Palms is close enough to the "charms" of Jaco and Herradura, but not so close that they are distracting. The house itself is well appointed. I cooked for our crew of seven and found the kitchen adequate. The beach and the community pool were excellent. Typically of Costa Rica (we all live here), Easter is the busiest beach time of the year - you might see 10 people in a 2 kilometer stretch. A lot fewer still if (like me) you beach walked at sunrise. The Hermosa Palms is owned/occupied by folks with every kind of gadget and vehicle imaginable. I was deeply pleased that neither engines or partying kept us up late at night."

  • Costa Rica Vacation Paradise - Playa Hermosa, Jaco

    "What a fabulous time we had in Costa Rica! The house and surroundings were beautiful. Having local people available through the owner, for guidance and scheduling activities is a tremendous plus for renting this place. We fished, did the Zip Line, hiked, did tourist things and just has a great time."

  • Clean, safe, beautiful location, but not quite as advertised

    "We were really excited to stay at this Playa Hermosa Bungalow. While the place was clean and the location was beautiful there were some key things that were not as described. First of all, no drinking water was provided. This was a real bummer, as we had just flown overnight and driven from SJO and wanted to relax on the front porch with a nice cup of water. We ended up taking one of the empty 5 gallon jugs to Mas X Menos and getting it filled. I let the owner know and she made no apologies or effort to reimburse us. There is no telescope, nor long distance phone calls or a helpful property manager who will assist you with tours. For some reason, the maid did not fully make the beds, so we were without a blanket for one of them. Aaron did provide us with one of his, but it was not clean, but we made do. We did not feel comfortable asking him for anything after that point-- there was a certain vibe to him that made you feel as if you shouldn't bother him. I did let the owner know about the telescope and phone calls and she basically played ignorant. Had we known that some of the descriptive items were not available, nor accurate, we probably would not have gone with this house, as these were selling points for us. Some of other property managers were much more interactive and friendly. I would suggest renting a bungalow from them if you want to be able to feel comfortable asking questions about what to do in the area and where to go. Besides all of the "surprises" we really did enjoy a peaceful vacation. We spent a lot of the time on the front porch. There is a nice ocean view. On the back porch we spent time looking at all the birds and animal visitors. We did get to see the monkeys. We lounged in the pool and the hammocks and felt quite relaxed. Victor, the fisherman, came by our place and had delicious catches. A walk along the beach to some of the restaurants was a fun time. The Backyard has a nice happy hour going on. The Bluegrass Cafe had delicious cinnamon rolls. And, make sure you take a trip to the waterfalls: Tres Pascinas."
