Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We took the whole family to Playa Hermosa and stayed at Sun Monkey We had a wonderful time and Costa Rica is beautiful. Maria and Macho were so helpful in guiding us to different places. Our kids said after seeing Costa Rica they would never go back to Mexico

Owner's Response: Dorendia, We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. "We had a wonderful time and Costa Rica is beautiful. Maria and Macho were so helpful in guiding us to different places. Our kids said after seeing Costa Rica they would never go back to Mexico". With such a nice review, I am curious why review was only 4 star? It was the 1st time we did not receive 5 stars. What could be made better to make 5 star in future? Thank-you for your business and hope you return.

Impressive !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 enjoyed all the luxuries of this home for 1 week. We loved it. Spent most of our time outdoors . The house just flows out to the outdoor living space , beautiful wonderful large infinity pool and pavilion area . Each couple had its own bedroom with ensuite bathrooms . Everything we needed to enjoy ourselves was there . Macho and his wife , Maria live on the grounds and where very kind, helpful and pleasant at all times . We shopped at the grocery store in playa del coco most days , for quick things the store at the gate of property was fine. It's my opinion that Playa Hermosa is a gem. Lots of wonderful people and restaurants . Once you use the outside shower, you will be in love with it ! Sun Monkey was a excellent choice for us. Recommend it highly . The views and sunsets are magnificent .

Amazing Home and View

  • 5 of 5

The view when you walk in the front door and see straight through to the pool and ocean is breath taking. The home is well laid out; many different sitting areas inside and out; the bedrooms have comfortable beds with really nice linens; the bathrooms are well stocked and large. The open kitchen with window access to the outside dining area makes group dinners very fun. The local beach is about a 10 minute walk; the local super market is a 5 minute walk. There is so much to do in this area, but we were happy just hanging out by the pool! This is a great house for large family gatherings or a group of adults. I would highly recommend for a wonderful vacation.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this home twice. It does NOT disappoint! It is a gorgeous, luxurious, yet supremely comfortable home with an amazing view of the ocean. It is impossible to not relax here. Maria and Macho take great care of the property, keeping it clean and in full working order, and able to help with logistics and suggestions. The pool, patio, various terraces, the lanai, grill, and outdoor shower all maximize enjoyment of the outdoor areas. Indoors the open layout with soaring ceilings and gorgeous wood work, the plentiful and huge bathrooms, the upstairs media room, and very comfortable beds all make time spent there very nice too. Even with 16 people staying there is PLENTY of space for everyone. But of course, Costa Rica offers lots of great things to see and do and this house is very convenient for many great places. Super close Playa Hermosa is awesome... a great, safe little beach that you can chill on, or do some snorkeling. The beach bar also has THE best pina coladas I've ever had. But within a reasonable drive we have done everything from zipline canopy tours, horseback riding, hot spring spas, waterslides, shopping and dining (Playa Coco is close and offers multiple options), beach hopping by boat, and deep sea fishing. There are numerous hiking options if you are so inclined. And we've day tripped to several fantastic beaches including Las Catalinas, Playa Grande, Tamarindo, and others that offer a spectrum of water sports like boogie boarding, surfing, wind surfing, and sea kayaking. All this just 25 minutes from Liberia airport - which is quite modern and easy to get in and out of. I can't imagine it being better than this.

The property was even more beautiful in person. The views were amazing. Everything we needed was in the house. The owner Michael was very easy to work with and gave us great advice on who to work with locally. Macho and his wife Maria took great care of the home and Maria cooked our dinner the last night. It was the best meal of the entire trip. We hired Leslie to organize activities and Mario to drive us around and they were top notch. This was a guys trip of 8 ( few days away from wives and kids) and this property was perfect .

Wonderful Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 ladies in need of girl time. This place was spectacular! It offered us the opportunity to splurge on ourselves, we had massages in our rooms, dinners prepared by staff from Star Villa Concierge, outings to a river boat cruise, a day of adventure at Buena Vista for zip lining, hot springs and a visit to the water fall, and a full day on a motor boat. Even with the excursions, we took advantage of relaxing by the gorgeous pool and pavilion which were majestic and rejuvenating. We spent our evenings enjoying chef prepared dinners, playing board games and girl talk…What could be better!! We chose to rent a car (I would suggest) It was easy to navigate the area. Next time, we might bring our husbands!
