Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • Beautiful villa with an amazing view of the pacific...

    "My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Camilla in February 2016. We had the idea to do a vacation rental as a family for a couple of years but were nervous about all of the moving pieces of getting all 11 of us together (4 couples and 3 small children). We had never done a vacation rental before and so this piece was a big unknown. We had high expectations and these were exceeded by both the quality of the accommodation as well as the exceptionally accommodating and welcoming owner and staff. We rented the main house as well as the studio apartment and this was plenty of room for our group. The house is just as lovely in person as the pictures appear (maybe even nicer) and was sparkling clean on arrival and throughout the stay. The ocean view from the house is spectacular and we were about a ~10min walk from the beach. We walked to Playa Hermosa most mornings with our children (2 and 4), who were thrilled to see the howler monkey family in the trees on the way every day. We also repeated the journey many evenings to enjoy dinner and a cocktail at one of several beach front walk-up restaurants. This was a fantastic spot to enjoy the sunset. We are a family that doesn't mind walking so this was a pleasure for us to have a bit of walk to the beach. Of note, the hill to the house is a bit steep and my sister, who has a 7 month old, preferred the short drive (there is lots of parking at the beach as well, so this was not a problem). It is also about the same walk to a small grocery store, so it was easy to keep the kitchen stocked. One thing I would like to note as well about the location (especially for those travelling with small children) is that was very nice to be a bit away from the beach and on the base of the hill hill as it does get very hot during the day and most times we had a pleasant breeze on the upper deck. Sam, the owner, is outstanding and makes you feel welcome in his home. True to the other reviews he welcomed us on arrival, ensured every detail was taken care of during the stay and provided excellent recommendations on local attractions. The couple that maintain the house and grounds could not be nicer. The house was cleaned several times during the day, our laundry was done each day and they were so kind to accommodate their upkeep of the house around the napping schedule of our baby and toddlers. Thank you sincerely Sam, for such a wonderful vacation experience. We hope to visit again soon!"

  • The house, the view, the people and most of all the host

    "We stayed at this villa for a week. The house is has an amazing location and the view from the terrace is stunning. The place is decorate with amazing taste which makes the stay all the more pleasant. There are friendly animals visiting in case you care for that. The office people are very friendly and accommodating and they facilitated all the requests we had. It was a pleasure dealing with them. Most of all though we were impressed with the host who gave us all kind of valuable information prior to our arrival and then she was extremely responsive to any request we had during our stay A vacation to remember for a long time One recommendation is to have a car to make moving around easier"

  • Great villa, excellent location!

    "Myself, husband and 4 year old daughter stayed July 26-August 3. We had a great time, this was our 5th trip back to Costa Rica. Although we haven't been back in 5 years we were worried about the development of Playa Hermosa. We were pleasantly surprised that little had changed, a few new buildings but nothing crazy. The beach is still as beautiful as the first time we visited. The Villa was great and had everything that we needed. We did have a problem with the AC, but was fixed very promptly. The pool did get cloudy our last 3 days, but we played in the ocean so it wasn't too much of a problem. Chris and Amy were really easy to reach and help solve problems. Very short walk down to the beach that we did everyday, my daughter liked to ride the tram so we rode that back to the villa office on the way back. If you do plan a stay buy groceries in Cocos, the snack shop for the hotel/villa is very pricey. My husband spoke with Amy from Avispas, turns out she does dog rescue and my husband is a veterinarian. We had a great time and would highly recommend this villa."

  • Charming little place!

    "My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks in June and were so pleased with this little gem in Playa Hermosa. It comes fully stocked with everything, just pick up groceries on the way in and you're all set. It was such a pleasure to meet Nan & Paul (owners). They were so helpful with everything possible (knowledge of the area, rides to town, places to eat, etc.) They were even gracious enough to invite us up to a sunset dinner with them above town which was breathtaking! Located a short 5 min walk to the beach, 15 min walk to a great pizza place and places to enjoy cocktails. So look forward to returning again."
