“Great value for a really cool villa”
Reviewed 3 August 2009

We stayed at the villa for five nights and had a very nice time. I like the architechture of the villas, reminding me of Navajo hogans, yet these new villas are equipped with all the things couples want. The two bathrooms are beautiful, and the rest of the villa is perfect. The ceilings in the villas are super vaulteed with wood beams soaring. They should upgrade their pictures of these beauties.

The staff was amazing, and the beaches near the hotel are very good. We particularly enjoyed Panama Beach, only a one mile drive from the Hermasa. We higholy reccomend this Luxery villa for both couples and families.

My only objective for Costa Rica was sunshine & relaxation - and this was the ideal place to do it. The villas were clean and spacious and even offered a washer & dryer (I won't pack as much next year). I loved the privacy of the villas and the decks - we would sit out in the morning and evening and enjoy our coffee. I prefer the pool to the ocean but those who wanted could have walked to the ocean. I loved that we were sheltered from the winds. We especially enjoyed the Breakfast Club you must try Scott's omelett with rice & beans.

We picked Hermosa Heights over our RCI hotel down the road this year because we had briefly met the wonderful people last year at Hermosa Heights and thought the location and Villas would be wonderful for ourselves and our family group. We had 2 Villa's with a beautiful view of pool and flowers. Our group was ages 20's to 50's and each and every one of us were more then satified with all that was offered.

Best thing is the hospitality of each and every member of the staff from the Upper Deck, Security, Spa, wonderful maids, Management and Scott and Roseanna at the breakfast club.
No line ups at check in, walk to lovely Hermosa beach, to the new Luperon Grocery Store or rent a vehicle/take a cab to Cocoa for shopping, golfing at Papagygo Golf Club.
The other wonderful thing is the none stop sunshine in Hermosa, we had the trade winds while we were there and some days it was very windy but this location is wonderfully sheltered from the winds with the natural mountain in back and lush pool side gradens in front.
If you want a no hassle, relaxing vacation book your Villa, we will be back again next year.
Thanks to the gain at Hermosa
Best wishes from the Calgary group

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hermosa Heights in April. A friend had gone to the same hotel and recommended it highly. After looking at the hotel's website online we decided to book a stay there since it was close to a few beach locations we wanted to visit on our trip to Costa Rica. When we got there we were really amazed by the hotel and the amenities it had. Pool (with pool bar), hot tub, complimentary wireless internet (throughout the hotel grounds), cable tv (not that we used it that much), kitchen, adjustable AC, spa, restaurant & bar, and plenty of parking (which was good since we rented a car). The hotel itself is in a beautiful location positioned on a hillside overlooking the bay and most of the villas had views of the bay. We were close to a few excellent restaurants and the beach was only a 5 min walk down the road. Really, we didnt have to worry about anything. Beaches were easily accessible, restaurants were easily accessible, the hotel itself had anything you needed and the staff were willing to help you with anything else. I loved it and ill go back as soon as she and I decided to tour Costa Rica again.

The villas at Hotel Villas Hermosa Heights were brand new and completely exceeded our expectations. They were great for a couple on a getaway or for a family vacation. While we were there they were just finishing the construction of a mini-golf course, movie theater, and night club. I can not wait to go back! The pools were very clean and properly maintained. The pool had a great deck, 2 waterslides and a swim up bar. I got a pedicure at the spa and the staff was extremely kind. There is also a sports bar and convenience store on the property. I felt very safe at the villas, there were security guards at the gate and guards patrolled the property 24 hours.

Playa Hermosa is the closest beach, just a 5 min walk, very clean, secluded and romantic. It seems that this beach is still a hidden gem. We almost had the entire beach to ourselves; it was something I will never forget. There are a couple smaller hotels on the beach where we would go and eat breakfast on the beach, then would use their chairs to layout all day and grab drinks at their bar.

It is less than 5 min drive to the larger Playa Coco where there are more shops, restaurants and night life. I would not want to stay there because it was not as clean as Playa Hermosa.

Our favorite restaurant on the trip was called Ginger, it was within walking distance of the villas. It has a very unique ambiance and architecture and the food and drinks were AWESOME!

We went on a horseback ride, water rafting, zip line tour which was only 10 miles up the road. During the zip line tour we got to see howler monkeys, birds, and iguanas high up in the trees.

We finished our stay in Playa Hermosa and took the drive to Arenal which was absolutely beautiful!!

  • Liked — Everything you needed was on the property but there was also alot to do off the property near by

We just stayed in the Hotel Villas Hermosa Heights in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. We went down to check out the area for a large family vacation in December. The hotel is new and everything was in perfect working order, and brand new everything, which we love. Despite being new, the kinks seemed to have been worked out because everything went without a hitch. The staff was very helpful and we felt very much at home. They spoke english well. We wanted to do some planning for snorkeling and boating and they hooked us up with the right people who showed us a great time. What was the best? Waking up and going to bed with this unbelievable view of the Pacific Ocean. The Hotel is halfway up a mountain, so its quite breathtaking. I cant wait to go back. If you're looking for a quiet, well situated, vacation hotel with a knockout view and a gorgeous pool, this is your place. Cant wait to return!

Hemosa Heights is the most awesome place, your heart will lead you there again and again. We would never stay any place else. No stone was left unturned in planning this place. The villas are wonderful, top of the line everything, When you walk into the villas your breathe will be taken away: designer furnishing, playa TV, kitchen, amazing bathrooms...... forget those large hotel chains , Hermosa Heights is your own paradise, the pool , sports bar, and mainly the people , If you need anymore info let me know, we have been all over Costa Rica this is our home away from home. LOVE IT.
