Our family of four (two adults and two 17-year old boys) stayed at the Villa Hermosa and had a fabulous experience! The pictures do not do the villa justice – it is even more beautiful when you are actually there. It is also very relaxing and homey. Judah was wonderful answering our questions before we arrived and helping us plan our itinerary. The house and the grounds are amazingly beautiful. It was fun to cook in the outdoor kitchen with the wonderful grill. The bar area was super nice for breakfast and snacks. The curtains that surround the kitchen/dining/living area were very functional. We opened them in the morning to let in light and to enjoy the beautiful foliage and then closed them when we left the grounds and at night when it was nice to have “walls.” One of the best parts of the villa is the pool! Oh my gosh! The pool is beautiful and the waterfall is very nice but it is the water in the pool that is truly amazing -- it felt like cool mineral water. The water felt so wonderful on our skin -- I have never swam in a nicer pool! The pool is also long enough to swim laps. Another part of the villa we enjoyed was the extra building with the pool table. We ended up playing pool almost every night and had a blast. Playing pool turned out to be a nice family activity that we all enjoyed. I would highly recommend The Springs Resort and Spa Club Rio 2-day activity pass (we did horseback riding and tubing) and the Rainforest Chocolate Tour (superb!). We had an amazing time at the Villa Hermosa. The Villa is great for people who want to be in peaceful surroundings and away from the crowds. It is remote, but worth it to be able to stay in a beautiful house and have the fabulous grounds to enjoy. Judah was so helpful and we feel like he is our friend now. This place is really magical and we have many great memories from our time there.
