Hospitality lives large at Villa Vista HermosaPosted Feb 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Judy, the owner of this B & B puts a lot of pride into her services. The grounds are gorgeous with an imaculate pool. Her business partner, Javier, is a local who shares his vast knowledge of the area, has an amazing service ethic and made the stay a complete pleasure. He took me on a jungle tour where we saw howler monkeys and a white-faced monkey. The meals are exquisite, the rooms are lovely and comfortable, and the company is fantastic. I will definitely return. Judy and Javier make this the best place to stay in Costa Rica.

Hidden gemPosted Oct 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
The moment we arrived, we were welcomed with an amazing tropical cocktail (o.k., cocktails) and already felt at home. This property is just GORGEOUS! The main house and rooms are spotless, the gardening and landscaping are absolutely beautiful, and the service is impeccable. Judy and Javier are AMAZING! Two of the most hospitable people ever. Anything you ask for, you shall receive. The food was cooked to order and was always hot, fresh and delicious. We took the ATV tour guided by Javier and saw every part of Tambor and the surrounding towns ... I would highly recommend this tour. If you ever make it to Tambor, please stay at the Villas Vista Hermosa and experience the hospitality of Judy and Javier, in addition to this beautiful hidden gem. Tell them Kim and Mike from L.A. say hello.

Would definitely go backPosted Apr 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
We were pleasantly surprised. Went alone with my four-year-old son, and my room opened right to the pool so we could easily go back-and-forth. The location was isolated, so not a good spot if you're looking for a "happening" place. Some ants in the room, but Javier was helpful in getting rid of them. Very attentive staff. Tiny B&B, at-home feeling, felt very safe. Excellent food, made to order. We ate all our meals there. The beach was a short distance, but a steep hike - great for me, but not good for a little kid. I would go into town (10-15 min. drive) for the beach instead of going to the close one - in addition, the beach in town is cleaner, more pleasant. This is a great place to stay the night before or after flying into Tambor.

the best plaee we stayed, hands down.Posted Apr 13, 2012
Stay here! This was the best place we stayed on our road trip in Costa Rica. The property is excellent, the food was great, the location is ideal. There are create towns in the area, beautiful beaches, and awesome hiking to the waterfalls. Not only was our stay perfect, the information Judy and Javier gave us on our route made the duration of our trip in Costa Rica that much better... This is the way to go... great for all types/ages/interests. 100%- I am recommending this place to everybody I know.

Great B&B in Santa TeresaPosted Mar 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
Perfect place to stay for a few days. The property is beautiful, close to the beach. The people who run the place, Judy and Javier, are really cool and made us feel right at home. Breakfast every morning was great. We had them make us dinner one night (surf and turf) and it was amazing. We also took a horseback riding tour w/ Javier and had a great time. We stayed in the 'Coco Loco' room and it was really nice, clean, and private; also had a huge spa tub. All and all we were really impressed with Villas Vista Hermosa and look forward to going back soon.

Great placePosted Jan 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Judy and Javier were very friendly, going out of their way to make us comfortable. The pool was nice and we enjoyed the jacuzzi tub in the room. The house is beautiful and the nearby beach is also very scenic - we saw monkeys, an armadillo, and a number of parrots and other birds on our walk down to the beach.

Very nice!Posted Jan 1, 2012 on Hotels.com
Located in an upscale residential neighborhood, This is a great spot near Tambor to get away from it all. Excellent service and great people. It's a bit off the beaten path, with beautiful amenities and good food.

RelaxingPosted Dec 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
We book this B&B as a stop over to our next destination. It was great. I felt like I went to visit my aunt. It's a private house turned into B&B. They serve amazing coctails and great breakfast. Beach is about 10 minutes walk down the hill, beach is your tipical vocanic beach undisturbed by tourists. We saw monkey's on our way down. Great Place
