Family-run Villas Hermosas is a dream spot to vacation and also to host an event. Being guests of Brad and Tara was like visiting friends, and we are grateful for all that they did to assure our wedding was amazing! A low-key affair, Tara introduced us to local British event planner Dahlia, who helped us with organizing a wonderful local... More

My wife and I stayed here in early July 2015. It's a little piece of paradise - beautiful accommodations, right on the beach and the best hosts you can have. If you like a relaxing, beautiful place with good energy, this is the spot.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa is this hidden gem. My husband and our toddler spent three weeks at Villas Hermosas and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Having spent many weeks over the past couple of years in the Santa Teresa area, this was without doubt one of the best places we... More

Villas Hermoosas is stunning.... nice pool, quiet and relaxing, monkeys and birds to see, and the shell picking was incredible. We were only there for a weekend, but enjoyed it thoroughly. It was right after an earthquake, but there was no damage, although other places in the area had some minor damage.

Villas Hermosas was our favorite place to stay on our vacation! The beach, grounds, pool and villa looked like our own private paradise. Since it is a small hotel with only four villas/cottages, you get to know the other guests. We only stayed three short nights, but by the time we left, we felt like family. The breakfast by Kristy...

Villas Hermosas could not have been better! The location is perfect, just off the beaten path but very close to town, and right on the beach. The morning breakfast was local and delicious, the rooms are spacious and the decor is authentic. Best of all was the service provided by Tara and Brad. They are always there with a smile.... More
