We booked our stay at Vista Hermosa based on Traveller reviews so were expecting something pretty nice but this lovel B&B far exceeded our expectations. The house is located in a quiet and safe rural residential neighbourhood a 15 minute walk to a local beach and a few minutes by car to Playa Tambor. The private air conditioned casita that we stayed in had a very comfortable King-sized bed with ample seating and a nice little cooking and food prep area. The breakfast was simply delicious, expertly prepared and graciously served. We encouraged the delightful owner and host, Judy, (a fellow Canadian) to share her Costa Rican experience and she regaled us with amusing and informative stories of her adventures during her time living and operating a business in Costa Rica. she even invited us to join her for a social visit to the neighbours which turned out to be a most engaging and entertaining evening. We highly recommend that other visitors to the Tambor area include Vista Hermosa in their travel plans for a rare and welcome treat.
Pros: Judy, the host, was most delightful and refreshing. The property is so pretty with extraordinarily well-constructed buildings and well-kept gardend.
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Easy drive to Playa Tambor, Santa Teresa, Malpais. Up-scale quiet country residential neightbourhood a heart pumping 15 minute walk to the local beach
