  • 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."

  • House was Great: Location/View...Neighbor with vicious, barking German Shepards was awful!

    "We had a large group and were very comfortable at Casa Miramar. The house is very large and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the highlight of the house. It was nice to jump in the pool during the day and soak in the Jacuzzi at night. We walked to the beach and local restaurants on several occasions and the hike back up to the house was good exercise! We rented a 4-wheel drive SUV, highly recommended for any of the Costa Rican unpaved roads! We made good use of it and drove to lots of the nearby beaches. Donald was great and cleaned the pool and balcony area daily. Marta made the beds and swept, but did not empty the trash in any of the bathrooms or kitchen. We also had trouble getting the appropriate number of bath towels for our party and had to share the first few days. We started out with only one spoon and after mentioning this to the rental staff, Marta brought up a handful the next day. The house could use more glasses and coffee cups. Also, we were told toilet tissue and paper towels were included, but we never got paper towels and were limited to 2 rolls of TP per bathroom for our 10-day stay. I would suggest charging $100 more per week and let people have as much TP & PT as they need! The staff at Special Places was very helpful answering emails and arranging excursions prior to our arrival. However, they seemed a bit disorganized after our arrival asking all in our party to come into the office to sign credit card receipts for our excursions despite us submitting a credit card authorization form prior to our arrival. They never mentioned we would have to come into the office and do this and it was a bit irritating since we wanted to start our vacation! The neighbor next door with the dogs was awful. She encouraged the dogs to bark at anyone walking by and the dogs barked at all hours of the day and night disturbing our sleep. The car gate at the bottom of the driveway needed repairing one day and the neighbor left the dogs outside to bark at the repairmen for hours. If you could get rid of the neighbor and her dogs, the house is ideal!"

  • Five Star Paradise

    "This is a wonderful property in a perfect location. Above all the staff are wonderful and very helpful from the time you arrive until your departure. The rooms are beautiful and the entire place is well taken care of. Located across from the Beach Club, the beach is pristine with a beautiful pool and food/ and drink to help you enjoy each day. We walked everywhere, either to the stores, restaurants or bars and just fell in love with Tamarindo! I highly recommend you give this place a try and discover for yourselves how wonderful you'll feel after a vacation here!"

  • 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."
