We had a great stay at Villas Hermosas in August 2010. The owners, Brad and Tara, made our stay so fun and comfortable. We loved being right on the beach and Brad and Tara organizing our activities for us (surf lessons, ATV tour by Brad, Ziplining). Our wedding was amazing, right in front of the beach at sunset. The staff...

I don't want Brad and Tara to get inflated ego (their modesty is the key to their success), but the fact is that they run one of the most wonderful hotels I've ever been to. Our family has been to VH six times and counting. Things just get better and better, even if this July was wetter and wetter! To...

Villas hermosas was well named. These villas are absolutely beautiful. They are run by Brad and Tara, who are the best hosts and owners of this property. They treat their guests as family. The beach, the pool, the howler monkeys waking us up every morning, the frogs and the gorgeous villa was our home for a week and we had...

Spent 8 days in Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais at Villas Hermosas and we thoroughly loved our visit so much that we truly did not want to come home. Brad and Tara were awesome hosts. We just told them where we wanted to go, and when, and they took care of everything from our zip line tour in Montezuma to dinner...

Perfect. Brad & Tara have built a destination like no other. Our boys, 5, 7, & 9, did not want to leave, nor did I. We chose Hermosas largely on their Trip Advisor ratings. You guys were right. The beach is secluded with only a few other souls to share it with. You can walk for an hour without speaking...

For our honeymoon, my wife and I picked Villas Hermosas over going to Fiji because we heard the service was amazing, we were totally psyched for surfing lessons, and we didn't want to waste an entire day flying... We had an absolute blast! Brad and Tara treat you like king/queens and family at the same time. They make themselves available...

Brad and Tara were great hosts and went out of their way to be sure our experience was second to none. The accommodations were excellent and we wanted for nothing.
