Guestbook comments from the owner

This is Gavin from the recent group at Villa Hermosa. I wanted to give you a little feedback. First, thank you for your great service and especially your responsiveness, which got things off to a good start. I think that's especially valuable for first time visitors to Costa Rica.



We did two boat days with your crew Alex and Robiron (sp?). I've been on a lot of charter boats, and operated boats myself with groups. Your guys do a very nice job, and they do a good job of delineating roles during the tour. I would do boat trips with you again in the future without hesitation. We had a diverse group in terms of experience and ambition level, and within those confines we did well. You obviously know dive and snorkel charters well, so little about this is likely to surprise you.



We also did a bike tour with Leslie Sanchez. There were four of us on the ride, and three of us are former professional riders. Granted, we're middle-aged and far from our former abilities, but we all still ride actively. So, we're tough customers. Leslie pulled off a really great experience for us, and it was a lot of fun to do it with him. He integrated into the group well, is physically fit himself and pieced together an interesting and challenging route. I was favorably surprised and impressed. You won't find a lot of groups that need a ride as challenging as what we did, but scaling back is easier than the other way around. If I had to choose among all the things we did during our visit to your area, and our subsequent days in the Arenal area, it would be the trip with Leslie.



Thanks again for your contribution to what was a very positive experience in Costa Rica. Laura and I have already had a chance to recommend you to friends of ours that are planning trips to your area. And hopefully we will be back down there at some point in the future ourselves.

Beautiful Memories

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous home situated perfectly overlooking the Four Season’s Golf course and Pacific. Bari was fantastic and arranged everything from boating tours to personal chief service. Her professionalism and Papagayo’s beauty made our stay fly by too fast. The rooms were perfect for the two families and each room provided views of the bay and golf course. Without a doubt the personal touches that Bari and Jane provided made our experience that much more inviting and both families are already planning our return.

Thank you Jane / Bari for a great experience.

An Amazing Family Experience in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Vista Hermosa over Spring Break and it was, to say the least, an absolutely wonderful experience. The condominium is beautifully furnished and lacks nothing you will need during your visit. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are furnished with high quality linens and local organic bath products. Right next to the condo is an amazing infinity pool that was great for relaxing while at the condo. However, we enjoyed spending the majority of our time at the beach club and the beaches. The beach club has wonderful service, wonderful food, and of course a wonderful beach. We used boogie boards, took surf lessons, and watched turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean. It was a very cool experience. There is also a great beach where the kids spent hours in the calm water snorkeling, searching for shells, and just floating around. In the mornings we would take the golf cart and drive around looking for monkeys and birds. There were often "pizcote" on the golf course and tons of monkeys playing around in the trees. The wildlife there is unique and gorgeous.

All in all it was an amazing week for our family in Costa Rica. I would absolutely recommend anyone of any age visit this magical place.

Papagayo Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying at Vista Hermosa if you are planning a stay on the Papagayo Peninsula!! It is beautifully appointed with gorgeous art and stylish furnishings. The main living and dining space has a huge balcony and there are also individual balconies off of each bedroom, an infinity pool right next door - all of which overlook the driving range and ocean. There is also a nicely equipped kitchen and great jetted tub in the master bath!

If you are looking for relaxation - this is the place. A typical day was waking up early, driving the golf cart 9 holes looking for monkeys and birds, checking out a beach or two (again with barely a soul in sight!). Back for some breakfast and then going to either the Prieta Beach Club, Four Seasons or Andaz to hang out with a day pass. The Andaz adult pool was awesome, with howlers and white-faced monkeys lazing in the trees around the pool all day, plus a couple of coco-loco tropical drinks and some cevice - can life get any better? If had the kids with us they would have loved the family pools at the Andaz and Four Seasons too.

In the afternoon we'd hang out by the condo pool (basically our own pool as nobody else was ever there during our entire stay!). For dinner, sometimes we would grill (we stocked up at the Mercado in Coco and Liberia - we preferred Liberia - both about a 45 minute drive) and sometimes we'd head out to a restaurant (lots of options close by!). We did get some great tenderloin and lamb chops at the butcher (Carnes San Martin - stellar, right by airport in the Solarium development at the back left hand side). The grill is awesome and I was able to sous-vide some ribs and sear them on the grill; sooooo good. Note, a great place to go and see the sunset is the 3rd hole or the Prieta Beach Club.

Honestly, the decisions to be made were really about which beach, what drink? It was that good. Totally recommend it!

Bari is awesome too - makes scheduling anything easy. Took the boat to a few beaches and saw the caves one day. Was a nice change of pace and learned to paddle-board too. She also arranged for our car - which was great.

Another tip is to get duty-free rum after you land in Liberia - it is right in baggage area. A liter of Flor De Cana there will set you up for the week!!

Book it. You'll love it!

The Four Seasons' Hipper Younger Brother

  • 5 of 5

If you generally stay at Four Seasons properties and are considering visiting Costa Rica, you need to go to the Peninsula Papagayo: that much is a fact.

But when you choose where you stay in Papagayo, consider this: if you want privacy, luxury, and common spaces for groups to enjoy one anothers' company, staying at Jane's property is a far better deal than the Four Seasons. I know because I spent the entire week trying to find reasons to prove otherwise.

As a travel writer, I was in Papagayo writing an article on why the Four Seasons is such a remarkable hospitality brand and why people live and die to stay in their properties. They have perfected the guest experience. Yet when you look at the big picture -- what are ultimate travel amenities that money CANNOT buy? -- you get things like "the whole pool to yourself" and "feeling like a local" which are experiences that are made inherently obsolete with a certain level of corporate success.

Fortunately, thanks to Jane's fleet of rentals, travelers can still find these things -- albeit, located right next door to the Four Seasons property -- and for a wonderful fraction of the big brand price. Money you can spend on stuff that really matters: like more champagne :)

Fabulous Vacation Destionation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was awesome. Everything was done well. Bari - our concierge was wonderful. You must rent the gold cart. It made it super easy to get to the beach club and to the Four Seasons for lunch or dinner. The pool right next door was great. The kids used it every day. The property was very clean and well maintained. The condo was perfect and the views outstanding. It was one of the nicest places we have every stayed in and would go back again if staying in that area. Zip lining at witches rock was fun. We rented jet skis and enjoyed that too!

The challenge with the area is its distance to a decent grocery store. We thought we would be doing more trips through Liberia but it turned out it was just too much driving so we ended up spending more time just relaxing by the ocean - which was great. We should had Bari stock us with more food. The grocery store was far away and a little bit of a challenge locating the items we needed.

I would recommend getting a place to stay in the middle of the country and visiting the rain forest for a few days to enjoy that part of the country and then come relax on the coast.
