“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed 15 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I stayed here with my husband and 5 1/2 year old son in April 2012. This is a truly wonderful alternative to the hotels in the area. The pictures on the Villa Hermosa website are an accurate depiction of the property but, honestly, I think it looks even better in person. The bedroom area is quite large - even with adding the second bed for my son it was still quite spacious. The bathroom and shower are also quite large. The property is well appointed - the bed is comfy and the sheets and towels are soft. The outdoor living area is wonderful and we used the kitchen while there. You will need a rental car to get to this place. It is about 25 minutes outside the town of La Fortuna and is in a residential area. (If you are going to be driving anywhere in Costa Rica, a GPS is a MUST.) The pool area is also quite large and is well kept. The gardens are more extensive than I would have guessed and there is a new area in the gardens called a 'Ranchito" which has two hammocks and is perfect for relaxing. Dave and Wendy were excellent hosts, had plenty of suggestions and made us a great breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend, especially if you don't mind staying a little outside of town. (Note: there is not much I would recommend that is within walking distance of La Fortuna). The only thing I didn't realize is that there is no A/C, but there are plenty of fans and the evenings cooled off enough that it was never as issue (and my husband is a big fan of air conditioning).
