We stayed in bungalow #28. Great place, lots of room for our family of five. Loved staying in the back, very private. The pool was wonderful and the grounds are clean and well maintained. The best part of the property is Twinka the manager. She is priceless! Definitely get in contact with her before you rent; she will pick the right bungalow that meets your needs. She will also help you chose the best excursions as she knows everyone. The surf is rough but we still had fun swimming in the ocean. If you're looking to get away from the crowds this is the place!

Room Tip: Ask Twinka she will pick the right bungalow for you.

We have stayed here on four different trips from '07-'10. The location cannot be beat. Two of our vacations involved a large group of 15-25 people, so we have pretty much seen every bungalow on the premise. With the exception of a couple, they are all fantastic.
We have not had the opportunity to stay since Twinka has been managing but I have met her and she is lovely.

I'm hoping that the other manager is no longer there because he was incredibly rude on our 2010 trip when we had rented 5 of the bungalows and 2 were not livable due to mold and/or construction issues.

The location is ideal, only a 10 minute drive to Jaco and steps onto the beach. We love it. It's home away from home with all of the amenities. It's our go-to spot, for sure.

Pura Vida!

We stayed in bungalow #1 for two weeks. There is everything you need to accommodate a family. The view is just incredible. My husband and son surfed right outside our bungalow every day. It's too rough to swim, but my other kids just swam in the community pool. The full time residents are so friendly and helpful. We got invited to a birthday party and when another neighbor caught a ton of fish, everyone gathered at the pool for a fish feast! The kitchen is fully equipped, AC worked great, has a washer and dryer, TV with some english channels. We spent most of the time outside on the front porch. Jaco is only a quick 10 minute drive with all sorts of shopping, grocery stores and restaurants. We rented a car from Zuma and they let you park in their secure parking lot any time you are in Jaco. Esterillos is just a few minutes drive down the road, so the guys had a choice of three surf spots every day. The community has a security guard that patrols the properties all night. The turtle reserve is just a quick bike ride down the road from the bungalows...total worth the time. During hatching season, they release baby turtles every morning and collect eggs from the beach every night. You can be a part of both. My kids LOVED this and it was incredible educational. It's exactly what you would expect from a beach house, comfortable but not extravagant. We liked the flexibility of being able to cook or run into town for a meal.

Our only complaint for Bungalow #1. Master bed had a below average double mattress with a misfitting boxspring, so the actual mattress hung over the sides of the boxspring which made the sides of the bed slope down. We dealt with it fine, but this could be a problem for anyone tall or on the heavy side.

Room Tip: All the bungalows are very close to the beach. #1, 2, 3 , 4 are beachfront. If you have kids that would want to be in the pool stay in #6, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15. (These have porches that you can see the pool from.

We just got back from staying at the Hermosa Beach Bungalows in Bungalow 4. This Bungalow is wonderful! It is ocean front and decorated beautifully! We stayed 5 nights and wanted to continue to stay for longer! My husband and I were traveling with our 9 and 11 year old girls. They loved the bunk beds and having a space for themselves! So much nicer than a hotel room. The bungalow comes with everything you need. The washer/dryer was so nice as we didn't have to pack as many clothes for our trip. The Manager Twinka and her daughter Alexandra were so very very helpful! We arrived to food and cold drinks already stocked which was so nice as we drove from Arenal at night. Twinka set up all our activities and they were all fantastic! We even had Twinka take family photos of us on the beach! We always felt safe (other than the crazy driving) but we can't wait to go back! We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else that is for sure!

Room Tip: #4 is beautiful but the grounds are so nice I am sure all the units would be great to stay in!

We have been coming to the hermosa bungalows for about 6 years now and always make this the last stop for our trip to costa rica. The houses have everything you need down to the wine opener. They have AC and washer and dryers. The location is a quick stop outside of jaco, which has ever amenity you need, but out of the touristy busy vibe of jaco. The surf is pounding outside your door to lull you to sleep, scarlet macaws fly overhead and geckos sing you a song as the night rolls in. Twinka and Alexandra are the most accomodating hosts ever and will give you advice and help you choose the perfect activities. I Am actually sitting on the porch of my bungalow right now, using the Internet and having a little Chilean wine, wishing I could stay longer. What a beautiful way to end a perfect trip.

Room Tip: Book with twinka. There are several managers on site but the bungalows she rents are in excellent condition, have coffee and a huge bottle of water. She truly cares and understands american standards.
