“Impressed in Every Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Our family of 19 stayed for 10 days at Hermosa Cove, renting all three of the 3 bedroom villas. To begin, the grounds are immaculate--- the walkways seemed to be swept around the clock and there is so much beautiful foliage it lends privacy between all of the buildings. The villas themselves are new and beautifully, but uniquely, decorated. Their are super-powerful A/C's in each of the bedrooms, but none downstairs in the living room/kitchen area, and none needed. The housekeepers always wear a smile and will keep all of the rooms sparkling. Your private pool will be cleaned every morning. The beach is not large, but big enough to enjoy the lounge chairs or have children play in the sand. Kayaks are kept clean and are brought out with a smile by David, who also painstakingly cleans and rakes the sand every morning. We brought our own snorkeling equipment and while the snorkeling is not the best, it is a fun activity -- you will see some colorful fish and, if you're lucky, an octopus as my daughter did. The restaurant staff is very accommodating (Yanique, Mayjean, Cleveland!, etc.) and meals are enjoyed in the open air with a gorgeous view. The complimentary continental breakfast is served up fast and is comprised of fresh fruit, banana bread and coffee or juice. Meal service for dinner is not fast, but we didn't find timely meal service anywhere on the island! We had a special birthday celebration one night and the staff made it all possible -- meeting with the singer we hired, setting up tables on the beach with candles and tiki torches and even joining in as we all sang Happy Birthday. Katherine, the manager, is extremely helpful with everything from planning excursions to hiring a private chef in one of our villas one night to helping print boarding passes -- she is a gem!

Bottom line -- if you enjoy huge, all-inclusive resorts -- Hermosa Cove is not for you. However, if you prefer personal attention, where the staff knows your name (and your children!) by the end of the first day, it is well worth it.

Room Tip: Ginger Villa has some views of the ocean (through the trees), don't think the others do. Howeve...

Stayed at one of the villas at Hermosa Cove recently and loved it. The villas are old style georgian arhitecture meets modern opulence. Loved the high ceilings, eclectic furnishings and private pool. Each villa is completely private but there's a restaurant and bar on the property so you dont have to do without anything. The service was fantastic too. Wonderful property!
