We spent two nights after staying in the mountains. The property is well-kept with lots of tropical vegetation that give it a deep in the jungle feeling with birds and even a few monkeys. The rooms are comfortable with good beds, healthy air conditioning and a bathroom with a generous shower. There is a separate sitting area in the room and a small outside deck with a table and chairs. Neither luxurious nor sparse - just a nice comfortable place to stay. The adjacent beach is clean and smooth with a mix of fine white and volcanic sand in a sort of salt and pepper. In March there were plenty of plastic lounge chairs and not too many people. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The open air dining room and bar are attractive with a beach view. The breakfast buffet is adequate with good local fruit. We enjoyed happy hour at the bar with appetizers and lunch at the restaurant. The food was OK and maybe a touch pricey for the quality but the service was a little too leisurely (i.e. slow for us. On advice of another guest we went to one of the other restaurants down the beach. Would happily stay there again knowing that there are plenty of options for dining within walking distance.

We stayed here for two nights as a break in our Central America trip and enjoyed our time there.
Our room was comfortable with a sitting room next to it which we used to put our luggage.
There was a kettle and coffee/ tea which was handy. The garden was nice with various lovely birds. There was a pool but we didn’t use it as there was a huge beach with sunbeds under the trees, so no umbrellas were necessary. If there weren’t enough sunbeds, which was sometimes the case, you could ask for them.

The ladies who did the massages on the shore were great and we all enjoyed the massage.
Breakfast was good, but yes there were flies so I burned incense to scare them off ( I have learned to carry incense sticks on all my trips to warm climates.) We enjoyed happy hour drinks at the bar. Dinner wasn’t great so we ate at a fisherman’s restaurant at the other end of the beach on our second night. Staff was polite and good. I would recommend this resort hotel as a nice holiday spot.

Stayed our last 5 nights from a wonderful 12 night trip in this beautiful resort. Room was plenty spacious with a huge bathroom and shower. Comfy beds. Great housekeeping and service all around. Loved the beautiful beach and the loungers the hotel had on the beach for is to use. Water was nice and clear with a sandy bottom no seaweed and no sea snakes. Food was delicious at the restaurant and if you walk down the beach all the way there’s a nice seafood restaurant very reasonably priced very good. We saw howler monkeys in the trees on the beach which was the highlight of the vacation just wonderful. So sad to be home wish I was still in Costa Rica 🇨🇷

Stayed here two nights recently. While certainly nice, it is a bit expensive for the accommodations. The pool is small. The beach is pleasant with enough lounge chairs but the facility is located right next to a large public beach with many locals who come over to the facility beach trying to sell items.

Had one meal at the restaurant that was okay but, in my view, not spectacular for the cost.

While one is clearly paying a premium for the beach location, I felt it was overpriced.

My family and I visited back in Feb 2020 and stayed for a few days after visiting the La Fortuna Area. We wanted to go back in Feb 2021 to take a break after the craziness of this year. My family felt safe and the staff was extremely responsible with health. If you want to stay on the beach, this is the place! Very clean...outside was constantly being maintained day and night. Rooms and all sheets changed daily and floors mopped. You walk outside and the beach is literally right there with awesome views. The staff went above and beyond and were all extremely nice! After ATV's my daughters shoes were nasty and I just dropped them off at the front desk and they handed them back to me looking brand new. Maurice at the front desk was always smiling and really took customer service to the next level. We rented jet skis, kayaks, and took a boat tour w/ Armando from "Dirty Oars". Went fishing (caught huge jack and an albacore tuna (the hotel restaurant prepared and served it to us for dinner that night), snorkeling, and visited the caves. We will definitely be coming back. First floor restaurant is great for an awesome breakfast and the second floor bar was relaxed and we played card games. The bartender there makes an awesome special drink with basil. I would go right now if only I hadn't just returned. LOL

Absolutely amazing small hotel right on beautiful Playa Hermosa. The staff was always extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay great. They even provided an unexpected room upgrade which was super nice! The food at the on-site restaurant was out of this world!! My husband said the burger there was the best he’d ever had. We did the honeymoon package which included all meals, and they were excellent- I recommend sticking to the more local cuisine such as the seafood. The beach was super calm and clean and the snorkeling on both rocky ends of the beach was pretty good with decent visibility. Lots of birds in the morning and very relaxed vibe at the hotel. Bring mosquito repellant and be careful if you venture near the rocky reefs to snorkel because there are sea urchins on the rocks- this is not an issue on the sandy parts of the beach. We definitely hope to be back!!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a two week touring holiday and it was a welcome and relaxing time.

The rooms are really quite smart and modern and the staff are really obliging.

We had a garden view room which was a lot quieter than the sea view rooms as you don't hear the pounding of the ocean all night.

The breakfast was good and there was plenty to choose from.

We ate in the evening in the bar, just having bar snacks which were adequate after a day of doing nothing.

The beach is vast and during the week it is quiet, however, we arrived on a Sunday, and as it is a public beach was quite busy, so expect the same on Saturday's too. Although the loungers are looking a little tired they were okay.

The local hawkers on the beach are polite when you smile and say no thanks, they leave you alone; they smile even more when you want to buy something ;)

We heard the Howler Monkeys most mornings and they even paid us a visit in the early evening just next to the bar.

I spent a couple of hours a day watching the Pelicans fishing at the end of the beach..... fascinating.

If you are looking to unwind, relax and rejuvenate, this is truly the place to be. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the ocean view rooms were awesome especially at night when you can hear the ocean waves which added to you having a very restful nights sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Covid protocols were in place and I felt safe and protected. Carlos and Jorge are the very best and went out of their way to make our stay special and memorable. The food was really good and the drinks were great as well! With a combination of nature and the beach, it made for a very special trip and the best of both worlds. Love this resort and will return.

Spent a few days here with my daughter and her two young children. What a wonderful place!! The staff are amazingly attentive to your every need. The rooms are so clean and spacious, very comfortable and quiet. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful, right on the beach with gorgeous sunsets. The dining room looks out over the sea and you can sometimes hear the monkeys playing in the trees. Everyone was very covid conscious throughout our entire stay. I can say enough good things about this magical place! One caveat, however. The pool deck and tile floors in the rooms get VERY slippery when wet. Both I and my grandson had minor falls when we were not being very careful on the slick surfaces. Otherwise, it was perfect and surprisingly affordable. Full delicious breakfast included ! Call and make reservations directly with hotel for best rates.

This hotel with approximately 30 rooms in small 2 story buildings is surrounded by a mini jungle setting right next to the beach. We woke up the first morning to monkeys climbing on the roof, such a cool experience. Breakfast was included with our room so each morning we started off with a great meal with OJ and tea. The pool is nice because it is mainly in the shade and you will definitely want some shelter after setting in the sun on the beach. Another great thing is the recliner beach chairs and pads that are put out each morning for the hotel guests. There are enough trees on the compound that you can sit in the shade while at the beach or in the sun. Parking for your vehicle is right across a small street and is gated during the day, so there is plenty of parking for hotel guests. Happy hour is from 5 to 7 everyday on the second story of the restaurant. Both the 1st and 2nd floors are open air looking out towards the beach. Playa Hermosa is much quieter than Cocoa beach, but still having a number of nice places to eat on the beach.

We snorkeled in front of the resort, walking in from the beach and swim to your left. We were in HUGE schools of fish. It was amazing. I wish that I would have brought a GoPro to film it! There is not much for coral to look at, but hopefully you will have an experience like we did.

Sure, there are a couple of small places beach front that you can reach walking on the sand. Walking on the street you will also find a pizza place, and two supermarkets. All of that less than a mile away.
