Hermosa Heights condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, clean home in a condo association park with a large deck and view of the ocean. The pool is down a hill about 75 meters away down a narrow road that goes past other condos. The pool is large and clean with a large deck area and two slides. The owner had a person to open the condo and she was available for questions, etc. The owner was very easy to deal with and quick to respond to questions. He even thoughtfully provides two flashlights in the unit.
Everything in the condo worked as designed. There was plenty of hot water and a large fridge. There is a grocery store in walking distance.
The condo has security day and night although I do not think crime is a big problem in CR. There is not much traffic in the condo area, so safe to walk, etc. In my experience the beach at Hermosa is safe, very slight waves, good for children. It is a 15 minutes walk away past other resorts, condos, etc. There are good restaurants in walking distance. Another advantage is that it is a short (20 -25 min.) drive to the airport, and easy to do.
I think this condo is a very good choice for a relaxing and safe place to stay in CR. I went with my wife and two adult children and there was plenty of room. If you want more excitement, Playas Coco is a 5 mile drive, and Liberia about a half hour away. I would definitely return to this condo. P.s., it was over 90 with clear blue skies every day for our week in February.

My wife and I had a very comfortable, nice stay at Antonelda. The most valued elements for us at Antonelda were proximity to beach and primary road for our daily excursions, plentiful hot water for showers( our fifth visit to the area and other previous villas were not as plumbing prepared), great towels and linens, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer for midweek use, small ice chest and noodle floats for our use at pool or day trips, and even the careful thoughtfulness of cord switches on all lamps for easy nighttime use. The local property manager Corby was always reachable and immediately helpful to the few times we had a question or needed a little help, thank you Corby!! We believe we got a very fair deal for a fair price compared with other stays in Guanacaste over these last 5 years. Thanks Russ! If pressed to provide idea re how to make Antonelda even more perfect, our only thoughts might be a couple of soft cushioned deck lounge chairs and a grill. But regardless, we would love to return for a longer stay!

Fabulous Stay!

We booked our stay after reading all of the other great reviews, and the villa did not disappoint! Very clean, very comfortable and well stocked / furnished. We had everything that we needed at hand. The beds were newer and comfortable, and the linens, towels, etc are of great quality. Russ, the owner, obviously cares greatly about the villa, it is highly maintained. Our favorite place to start our mornings were on the deck, watching the sun change the color of Papagayo Bay, listening to the birds, experiencing the howler monkeys. The pool was a big hit with our young kids, and is also immaculate. They had smoothies at the waterside bar. Hermosa was a great place for us to be introduced to Costa Rica, a great area of the country for us to go seek adventures and return home nightly to pure comfort. Russ and Corby (property manager) were great to work with, both very prompt and truly cared that we had the best stay possible. We couldn't ask for anything more! If and when we return, we'll certainly call on Russ and hope to stay again. Thank you for providing such a first great impression of Costa Rica!

Great Place to Stay

My family stayed in the villa during our vacation to Costa Rica. The place is very well maintained, well equipped and located in the very nice compound. It is within the walking distance from the beach and has wonderful view from the balcony. We haven't used the facilities (gym, spa, movie theater, etc) on the territory of the compound, but saw people regularly using them. The pool was very nice though, and my 9 year old son, who is not a big fan of pools when there is an ocean nearby, spent quite some time there. Russ, the owner, was very helpful and responsive. If we ever decide to return to the Playa Hermosa area in the future, staying at this villa will definitely be our first choice.
Owner's Response: Sergey: Your review comments are much appreciated. My goal was to make sure your needs were met during our communications and your visit. I am happy to know that you were satisfied. Hope you will return in the future. Regards, Russ

If you like quiet this is the place for you. My family of 5 stayed in this villa for a week. It is just as the pictures and reviews show. We enjoyed having the extra space and a place to cook some meals. We made use of the blow up matress which fits nicely in the master bed room leaving the living room open for early risers and late nighters.The views from the balcony were wonderful. During the week the complex was very quiet. We rarely saw anyone and had the pool to ourselves. On the weekend the pool bar/grill was open serving food and drink all day long. There was also live music from 5-7. The pool was very happening as there was a child's birthday party going on. This was also the only time I saw anyone using the minature golf. Also the Sports Bar at the front of the complex was closed down. If you stay here I highly recommend you rent a car. The owner, Russ and his property manager, Corby were very helpful and quick to answer any question or concerns we had. The nearby Ginger's Tapas Restraunt was very good. I recommend driving to Playa Ocotal . It is a beautiful black sand beach just south of Playas del Coco. Also, if you are up for an adventure we enjoyed zip-lining and hiking with Sky Trek and relaxing at the Tabacon hot springs.

Owner's Response: Carol; I am so glad that you had a great time during your Costa Rica vacation and that my community and villa could be a part of it. I very much enjoyed working with you to ensure your family's needs were met. Many thanks. Russ
