  • The photos do not do it justice!

    "We just returned from 7 wonderful days at La Joya Bella. Everything about the house was fantastic. It had four separate en suites, each with a great view and it was the perfect size for our group of six people, allowing each couple privacy. The best feature is the pool, in fact it was so great we spent three days just enjoying the pool and the view. Most evenings were spent watching the spectacular sunsets from the pool. The interior is comfortable and well equipped. I fell in love with the bedroom doors - carved features identifying each room. There is a lovely courtyard with an outdoor shower and water feature. I can not say enough about how wonderful the property management company was during our stay. They helped to arrange a private chef for a delicious birthday dinner, two massage therapists for a relaxing girls day, the tour group and went above & beyond to help us when we lost the keys to the rental car. Overall this was one of the best vacations I have ever had!!!"

  • Property was well maintained and the maid service was excellent!

    "The owners were onsite and were an asset in answering questions about local eateries and places to see. The highlight of the stay was the service provided by the family staying on the property that provided daily housekeeping and pool cleaning. I can't say enough good things about the couple and their daughter. I would strongly recommend asking them to prepare a few meals for your group. They are excellent in meal planning and the food is do die for. The only problem we had with our stay was the walk to the beach. Although it was close, the walk to the beach was steep and uneven, not the best for older couples who are not in shape. The pool was wonderful, kept very clean every day."

  • Perfect Family Retreat in Playa Hermosa

    "We had a wonderful time staying at Chris' unit in Villas Sol! At first, my husband was a little disappointed that the unit didn't have the view offered by many others advertised on VRBO in Playa Hermosa. However, we quickly realized that our unit's proximity to the beach was far more important and convenient than if we had rented a villa with a view as those units were all located up a very steep hillside! The unit itself was very clean and spacious and had all of the amenities we needed. The patio was perfect for playing board games, dining al fresco or simply reading and/or napping on a chaise and the small pool was ideal for our use with two small children ages 5 and 2. They LOVED it!! Plus, if we wanted to go socialize and play around in a bigger pool, there was that option also with the other two resort pools! Being in the complex itself made us feel safer and it was nice knowing that if we needed ANYTHING (especially having small children with us) there was always 24 hour staff that could assist us. Another great thing about being a part of the resort was that they offered great tours, as well as car rentals. I highly recommend getting shuttled into Villas Sol (preferably by Liberia Shuttle-Javier is great!) and renting a car from the resort. As it turned out, it was actually CHEAPER to rent from them than it was to rent near the airport AND it was much more convenient. Playa Hermosa itself was so peaceful with very few people on it at any given time. It is definitely not the 'mill' that Playas del Coco or Tamarindo are where you have people begging for money or trying to sell you things at your every turn. I think we were approached maybe twice to buy something the entire week we were in Playa Hermosa. As for restaurants, we favored Roberto's! We found it to have the best location, delicious food and a wonderful waitstaff!! AquaSport was also another fun spot a little further down. And if you rent a car, you MUST find Father Roosters! It's kind of tucked away in Playa Ocotal, but once you find it, you'll love it! Good food (although a bit on the pricey side), great entertainment and waitstaff and spectacular sunsets! Just a really unique place! All in all, we had a fabulous time while staying at Chris' unit and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!! She, too, was a gem to work with and made everything very simple and stress-free. We can't wait to return to our newly found paradise as soon as possible!"
