We did a last minute quick trip to Playa Hermosa Costa Rica and found this hotel online. We have never been to Costa Rica and didn't have a lot of time to plan or stay and didn't want to spend a ton on a resort. This property was a wonderful surprise! Small boutique hotel, that on initial sight doesn't look like much, but the rooms are very clean, spacious and the staff was nice. They do not all speak English. The restaurant is right on the beach and has a nice menu. Many people come from other properties to eat here. prices are very reasonable. The breakfast was one of my favorites! You can't beat the location, for the price. Beds are a bit hard, but clean. We are a family of 4 with 2 adult children. If you are looking for something priced right with more of a "locals" experience than a resort this is the place. Seemed safe as well, we had no problems. We would come back again.
