“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

My wife and I stayed four nights at this hotel with our 1 yr old daughter. We had a wonderful time, enjoying a nice, clean beach, rooms and common spaces surrounded by trees, which not only provide a fresh shade, but also provide housing for monkeys, iguanas and lots of different birds. The place is great, the staff was really helpful with our needs, the food is very good and everybody in the staff is friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Great hotel. Only stayed for two nights mores the pity but the location is superb. The rooms are really comfortable and so well equipped. The food is very tasty especially the red snapper and the staff are very attentive and friendly. The beach was clean and well maintained and not crowded. The hotel is so well designed that from the beach you can hardly see it as it just blends in with all the trees. The wildlife abounds all around you with a wake up calls fom the howler monkeys,large lizards and wonderful birds. Friends did the sunset cruise and said it was spectacular. We had to watch from the beach but that was pretty special too. Just hope this little slice of paradise stays just the way it is. They have a great formula to keep their guest happy and contented.

Had a wonderful time. Rooms are impeccable. Staff is incredibly friendly. Hotel is in the shade, which is nice when the temperature climbs in the afternoon. Playa Hermosa itself was very nice. Quiet, good for walking. Not a lot to do if you're looking for beach action. The beach itself was very clean, although the sand is compact and not good for sitting around.

We pushed the boat out here and had an ocean front suite. The suite was beautifully designed and one of the classiest rooms we have ever stayed in. It had a huge balcony with a jacuzzi.

The hotel itself was a very attractive design and they had done a brilliant job of keeping as many mature trees as possible and planting many more beside.

The front desk staff were very helpful, and the waiters and bar staff were also good. The gardeners and the guy looking after the beach chairs worked from dawn to dusk and always with a smile on their faces.

The sea is great for swimming and the beach is attractive and never crowded.

I can thoroughly reccomend this hotel and an ocean front suite would be perfect for a honeymoon.

Room Tip: Splash out and have an ocean front suite.

A friend and I stayed three nights in this spectacular hotel. The hotel itself is beautifully laid out, perfectly positioned at a quiet end of a long beach and oh so clean. The hotel was very quiet during our stay and the staff were amazing. I felt so welcome and no request was ever refused. The restaurant is open air and everything we ordered was delicious. The staff were happy to speak to us in English but also very happy to teach us or let us try our rudimentary Spanish on them. There were howler monkeys, lizards, many birds and even an anteater just hanging around the property. So looking forward to visiting this gem of a hotel again.

Didn't stay here but hands down the best meal we had in Costa Rica and surprisingly not as overpriced as other local places. Stay there if you can afford it, beautiful place. If not, make sure to come by for dinner - a delicious, well priced meal.

The hotel is beautiful from the architectural point of view and the fact that it is situated just few metres from the sea, makes it perfect for beach vacations. The buildings blend beautifully into the nature - trees growing through the sealings and wild animals such as howler monkeys and lizards just hanging around in the hotel area.

We had some trouble figuring out how the airconditioner works but otherwise I would say that our stay there was perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed at a junior suite with a view to the pool and garden which was perfect and I believe bett...
