Pros: accommodations are nice, clean and safe. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe. The restaurant dinner options are varied and tasty. The beach is walking distance; is beautiful and not crowded. Nice and relaxing pool areas. Fun band and happy hour on Tuesday. The staff always remembers your name and greets you with a warm hello.

Cons: The wi-fi is basically non-existent in the rooms, okay in common areas. Not much to do in the area and must take cabs to other areas which can get pricey.

Fabulous warm welcome from Leo with advice on local restaurants and other ideas. Excellent big room with comfortable bed, AC and ceiling fan. Cracking pool area. Location is a few minutes (5 or less to the beach and some nice restaurants being another 5-20 minutes' walk. I would go back without hesitation.

Stayed here for three nights early this month. Very easy to find, very clean, rooms just a little dated. Breakfast daily was very good and the entire staff was fantastic. The grounds are meticiously maintained and the pool was spotless. Met the owner and his wife (the executive chef) who were as friendly a couple as we've ever met anyplace in CR. Claudio(sp?) and Sylvia are great. The only thing we could have wished for would have been the restuarant to have been open every night. As it was, they were only open the last night we stayed and the food was fantastic. The Italian sausage in the sausagechicken/pasta dish was the real deal. The location is so close to the beach, that not only do you not need to drive/park, but you can walk barefoot very easily both ways. We will definately be visting again.

I booked this through Booking.com. We got a very good price for a small room $102 for 2 nights. It is very close to Liberia airport where I was going on the day of check out. When we got to the hotel the receptionist who was very pleasant gave us the key etc. We started to bring stuff up to the room and we noticed the bathroom was not clean. There was toothpaste stuck on the toothpaste holder. So I went down to reception and she said I can move you to the next room which is the same price or upgrade you to a larger room. So we went and looked and decided to upgrade for extra $10 a day. I think they should have upgraded us free considering our room was dirty but for the low price I didn't say anything. I would be very disappointed if I had paid the price on their website. It was over double of what I booked on booking. The breakfast was awful. No fruits (we were told by waiter because of low season and low prices right now.) There were only 2 choices typical CR breakfast or crepes with fruit. The 1st day I got the crepes and it was ok. The 2nd day I got the crepes again and it was cold so I sent it back and it was microwaved. Very surprised the kitchen didn't take 5 minutes to make another one considering the hotel was so quiet. Orange juice was brought to our table when we sat down and not offered anything else but coffee. My husband is a chef in a restaurant in Costa Rica and could not understand why they did not give fresh fruit considering they had fresh papaya and pineapple on the crepes. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. Dinner/bar was not open because of covid/low season when we were there. The 2 pools are very clean and we enjoyed the big pool. I liked that they had plenty of beach towels. We did not know they closed the office I think about 7. Our room was above the office and I noticed going by that peoples personal information and keys were just left at the counter for the people checking in late. A bit surprised by that. I was told there were 2 guards. I did not see either of them the 2 nights we stayed however we did feel safe in the area. It is very close to many other beaches to which we took advantage off visiting. If you can get a good price I say good but not worth $100 a night. No fridge in small rooms. The garden is beautiful especially at night.

2 star hotel charged for 4 stars price. The room size was very small and bed size offered was single queen for two people and No headboard on the bed wall. Big Fire Red Ants” were everywhere in the bathroom, bedroom and on the bed mattress wall. These ants which bit people and can cause reactions.

I have complainted to the front desk staff but the lady on the front desk - “Dianne” gave lame excuse, she said this is Costa Rica and bugs are very common everywhere!! We stayed at other hotels and Airbnb with no issues of bugs inside the property. (please see the picture). Not happy with our two nights stay.

Dinner menu was limited options and dinner wasn’t really tasty.

Alot of greens and surrounding of the property kept clean. The restaurant staffs are courteous and served us with a smile. The breakfast served was very good with options to choose.

There is a lot of potential, but too many issues for me to leave a better review. For starters I booked a room with a king bed and the next day received and email stating we would receive 2 queens instead, like this was no big deal. When I replied to cancel the reservation I was told we would be charged a fee. After stating I would dispute the charge with my credit card company they magically had a cancelation and now could offer a king bed, which is what we reserved in the first place.

The food in the restaurant was pretty decent, except for breakfast which was terrible. But the restaurant staff were hit or miss. Randal and Ronnie were great! The others gave preferential service to locals and rhe young female tourists. More than once we were seated prior to other groups who received their food before they even took our order.

The most annoying thing about the stay, there are virtually no outlets in the room. We had to pull the bed away from the wall to unplug both lamps in order to charge our phones. And while there is a coffee maker in the room, there is no outlet to plug it in accept the bathroom which barely has enough country space to set the coffeemaker.

The hotel is on the budget side of the price spectrum, but I'd still expect decent staff and the ability to charge my phone.

We returned to Sueno because it (Hermosa) is a pleasant, simple place to end a
trip, that is near enough to the airport. The pleasant staff has remained consistent from before and there is a low-key friendliness to the 'villa'. The landscaping and gardens remain tenderly cared for here and the birds enjoy it as well as there are several species nesting in the trees, as well as parrots in the canopy and a mot mot on the fence. All is kept clean. There is no access to a mini-mart as such and in the pool side rooms, no mini fridge. But there are breakfasts and dinners here and reasonably priced snacks from the thatched bar/lounge area. The resort has been updated for its 25th anniversary. The pool is quiet and has shade in the latter afternoon and there is a little groto behind the public bookshelf for solitude in the shade. Exiting the property, it is just minutes continuing along the road to the right, past Bosque Villa to the beach entrance, and what a nice, uncrowded beach it is. In fact, it seems to have been cleaned up.
Like many others, we go up a third of the way to be at the upscaled 'aquasport'
to watch the sunset, grab a drink and some food. and music too this time. We had an incident, the owners were sympathetic and the staff was helpful, particularly the manager. We were able to attend the tuesday jazz, last of the season, and new since we last visited.

The pleasure of being with people who care that your time with them is great was amazing. We met the owners fell in step and love with their team! They treat you with such a comfortable and relaxed respect.

This boutique hotel is worth every penny! From the great bed, decor and the amazing patio and pool! The decor is air perfect it mixes well with the relaxed Hermosa vibe! Ronnie, Randall,Jorge , Adrian and Leo. They are an amazing team.

The sophisticated comfy style of this great property begs you to sit back and relax.

The chef has an awesome menu to please you. This is a class 5 hotel that is not pretentious in any way. We will be back.

The restaurant staff is very cordial and they aim to please but I found the management staff rude and lazy. From the moment of arrival we had issues with our room availabilty on a reservation that was made weeks in advance and after a little back and forward we were informed that a king size bedroom was now available due to a family emergency of a former guest. The rest of the Check In didn't get any better and continued with what it felt like some fear mongering about tour services outside the hotel and suggesting to only use theirs, and to bring back the towels when really wet and dirty and that only one swimming pool was available to us. Next day I asked for a tour and I was told that this particular tour wasn't possible until four days later and I ended up booking it on my own outside the hotel without any issues. There are various tours and activities nearby that they don't offer and a simple Goggle search will solve it. So I decided to avoid the front desk and during my last night I went to get my room key and I was told..."no, you're going to sleep in your car. Hihihi, I'm just joking". I frankly hope that the management staff get to read this and understand that they play a major role on their guests overall experience during a vacation stay and that professiolanism and courtesy goes a long way.

We had a terrible experience at the Bahia del Sol in Playa Potreo- we arrived only to find that almost the whole hotel was reserved for a wedding and were greeted by over 70 people in the pool and lawn area all drinking and dancing to a DJ with terrible booming music. We were not informed and we didn't want to stay there in the middle of someone else party.

We went to the carpark to book a place to stay and found Villa del Sueno at the last minute. We drive the monkey trail and arrived at dusk, we missed out beach sunset....

The receptionist was calm, professional and friendly and spoke clearly to my elderly friend.

We were able to sit down and have a glass of water on arrival.

The room were were given was fantastic, super clean and close to the pool. Two bedrooms and a kitchen.

All staff members were professional and friendly from the two guards we met to the workers in the restaurant.

The live music was lovely, not overwhelming and added a great ambience. The food was delicious- we were ver hungry after our ordeal.

The waiting staff in the restaurant were very attentive, addressed us by our names and it's the first time in Costa Rica I usted a butter knife! our water glasses were topped up often and we had a really nice evening.

We can't wait to return and we are so glad that our trip worked out in the end after an ordinary start.

Thank you to the receptionist Daniela, she was excellent.And the waiter Jairo.

Gracias gracias gracias!

We are located 150 meters from the beach walking, there are two places on the beach that you can use the beach chairs, which you can use through a restaurant consumption.

The pools are about 20-25 feet long and yes, 5 feet deep. It is suitable for swimming but short laps. I swam in the pool located in the courtyard. It's very clean and they have showers hooked up on either side of the pool. Don't expect to do 50 meters straight of freestyle, you will have to break it up in short segments (also depending how many people are in the pool.) Note: Go early in the morning, I believe it opens at 8am. Have fun and enjoy, The Villa is situated in a perfect location and the staff are more than helpful.
