I've been meaning to write this review for a few months now - the owners, Kenny and Sandra, were very hospitable and very down to earth. I arrived there in late June with 3 of my girlfriends, having called only a few hours before we arrived there to reserve our rooms. Since we were unfamiliar with Playa Hermosa, Sandra had Kenny pick us up at the bus terminal around midnight or 1am, which was extremely nice of them seeing that it would've been really unsafe for 4 girls to hitch a ride or walk anywhere at that hour, with no streetlights.
The rooms were comfy with decent bathrooms and a few fans. We could hear all the wildlife and the ocean waves from our screened windows. It was just feet away from the beautiful beach.
There was an outdoor communal kitchen and Kenny and Sandra offered us their own spices and even gave us some shrimp to cook.
The pool was very clean and cold, perfect for hot days. There was a small pasture or converted mini-park next door where horses were roaming. Just beautiful.
My friends and I chilled most nights poolside on the provided table and chairs. They got EATEN up by mosquitoes but that's probably because they used some organic bug-spray. I doused myself in DEET and that kept those bloodsuckers away from me. One of my girlfriends got 70, yes 70, mosquito bites in one night!
The rate was very affordable - i can't remember exactly how much, I want to say around $15 for a double room, maybe even less.
I'll definitely stay there again if I ever go that way.
