First time there and was there for a friend's birthday dinner. Hubby had been suggesting that beef in Costa Rica was not the greatest.. HOWEVER.. He had a really sumptuous and delicious steak at Vista Hermosa "Quite the best steak I have had in years". I had the shrimp: tasty, nice salad. Service is super and hostess/owner Judy Bonnell knows...

Judy radiates love and joy in every aspect of her business. From the moment you walk in her gate on her quiet little street you feel peace. The beautiful twinkling lights, the amazingly fresh food, the beautiful staff (we fell in love with Jason), the wonderful tours, right down to the massage therapist. Judy loves everyone and takes care of...

We recently enjoyed my Husbands birthday dinner with 13 of our friends at Vista Hermosa. The dinner was wonderful and the service great. They can accommodate up to 18 people and I highly recommend it.

Good location, great landscape with beaches and waterfall nearby. B&B is located in middle of wildlife. The staff is so friendly and always good for communication about locals, tradition, places to eat etc. Judy helps arranging excursions for example to Tortuga Island....It is a warm and perfect place to relax! Great food! There is absolutely nothing we could claim about!

We met the owner of this small B&B on our flight to Tambor from San Jose. She suggested we try her restaurant for dinner one night and she even picked the 6 of us up in her car ( two of us road in the trunk). Really nice spot, all the lush vegetation. Open air bar and an area on...

We stayed with Judy between Christmas and New Year. This was my second time there, and my stay was just as fantastic as the first time. It's hard to say enough good things about this bed and breakfast. First, it's a real B&B. It's small enough to feel intimate and familiar, but there is plenty of privacy so you don't...

Where do I begin on this review???? Between Judy and Gerald this was by far one of the best vacation stays!! We felt right at home - due to being the only visitors during our stay. They both catered to our every needs/wishes, humored us by answering thousand's of questions, and when it came to celebrating my b-day....Gerald made sure...

We stayed at another hotel close by, but weren't very pleased with the food. We were getting desperate and went searching online for something else. Then we found Judy. We gave her a call and she offered to come and pick us up in her car for dinner. We arrived at this amazing little boutique B&B with a great atmosphere....

I have enjoyed several meals at Vista Hermosa. Dining options are very limited in the Tambor area. Nonetheless, the meals, cocktail service, and atmosphere of this "'mini-resort" are absolutely terrific. Staff is attentive, the meals are prepared exactly as described and also to the patrons taste. I'm eager to get back to Vista Hermosa and see what specialities will be...

After 5 days in Santa Teresa we decided to find a place closer to the Tambor airport in preparation for our flight to the rain forest. A gut feeling told me to check out Vista Hermosa and I was right. Judith's property is about one of the most beautiful properties I've stayed in Costa Rica and I not only travel...

“Ask Judy about the romantic private pool set up in the rear house with poolside dinner. It costs a bit more (and may be be tough in the high season) but it the best thing you can do for you and your loved one!! It's a great value!!”
