Recent Playa Hermosa reviews

  • 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."

  • Spectacular views!!!

    "Just returned from a 10 day trip to this beautiful condo in Playa Hermosa and I'm already having withdrawals from missing the views off of the back deck. We would wake up early each morning and drink our coffee while listening to the waves crash below and the sounds of nature all around us. The place is immaculate with all the comforts one would need on a vacation. We did experience a problem with water pressure on our first night but it was quickly resolved by the property management. It conveniently located very close to Liberia Airport and lots of the area attractions such as Rincon de la Vieja, Llanos de Cortez waterfalls, Coco Beach and the Congo Trail Canopy. There are many wonderful restaurants close by as well. One thing I do recommend is you must have a car to get around because the walk back from the beach is treacherous as the condo is located on top of a very steep hill (hence the panoramic views of Playa Hermosa). I would definitely recommend a stay here. You will not be disappointed."

  • Beautiful Home with Great Property Managers

    "My family and I had a great time at Villa Aurelia. The home is beautiful, the kitchen is great, and we all loved the pool. We spent our mornings at the beach and the afternoons at the pool - can't ask for a better vacation. The property managers were also great in helping us arrange for a personal chef to come to the house (who was wonderful!), book excursions, book our rental car and just navigate around the city. But there were a couple of things I wish we had known before we arrived. The home sits on a hill, which allows for a great view of Playa Hermosa. But the drive up to the house isn't ideal. Only the part right by the house is paved, and the rest is a steep, uneven dirt road. A rental car is a must, and you won't really be able to walk anywhere from the house because of the hill. Especially if you have young children, like we did. The other item we wished we had known about was the water. We were told about two days before our trip that there were severe water restrictions in place, but they shouldn't impact our vacation as long as we limited the length of our showers. Not a big deal. When we arrived the water tank was about 1/3 full, which was enough to last us a few days. But because of the above mentioned road, the water truck didn't fill the tank on Monday like they were supposed to. We went a day and a half without running water at the house, which was frustrating. The property managers were very helpful in fixing the pipe down to the road and getting trucks to come out as quickly as the could to refill the tank. Hopefully the pipe they installed prevents this from happening to anyone else, but just wanted to share our experience. And although it was frustrating, we still had a wonderful vacation."

  • The villa was great and complex was great as well.

    "The villa was in great shape - well equipped and AC worked. We only used the 2 bedrooms, not the sofa bed, and they were both comfortable. We enjoyed the mini-golf and went to a movie. The pool was not huge, but large enough. Though the complex is not new we found it to be well kept. Balcony had beautiful views. We were very comfortable and felt very safe. It is only a few minutes away from restaurants & a good supermarket. The owners responded very quickly to all our questions and we definitely enjoyed our stay and will go back."
