Perfect Location for ones with a family and a great pool. All staff are super friendly. This is a family run hotel, and you can tell. Its a lovely place to end the last week of our months stay in Costa Rica. The rooms are super comfortable, very big with lots of space and the beds are amazing! We slept like kings here. The restaurant serves a great breakfast ( which is included) and then we sometimes either had lunch or supper here too. The club sandwich is to die for! Could not believe the size of it! My husband said, I have never seen anything like it - its amazing! lol
If your looking for a great comfortable place where you can feel at home, and the beach only a 4 min walk..... this is the place to come.... Thank you Mangaby

So we are now into our last week here in Costa Rica, and wow what an adventure we have had.
There have been some tough times, some great laughs and some super memories of this place...... I am so glad the Aprils did this together.
We arrived into Playa Hermosa on Monday, and as soon as we got of our bus and arrived at the Hotel …
... only 8 people in our tour group so we had a lot of room to stretch out in the van. We met our tour guide Walter who was a young kid in his early 20's and he spoke very good English.
The first leg of our ride to Palo Verde was about 1 1/2 hours. We passed through the town of the Liberia which is the largest in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica (65,000 people) and continued on to the town of Bagaces. This town is located on the Pan American Highway which ...
It is surprising how different each of the Central American countries are. They all have democracies (though Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua is doing his best to become a "president for life" as they used to say in Africa). All have volcanoes, a coast on the Pacific, grow coffee, speak Spanish as their official language and are nominally Catholic. But the way people behave is very different: their culture and the approach ...
... Liberia. I waited in the car...and waited. I finally got out of the car & walked over to him at the ATM machine and he said the machine had shut down & took his card! No problem, we will go in the bank & have them get it out of the machine. It is 9:30am & the bank opens at 11am! NO, this can't be happening, the park closes at 3pm & it's a 4 hour hike. I was hating every minute as we stood in front of the bank ...
... Rica). The killer is the insurance, Jeff got full coverage which made the total $515, but you gotta have it in this town.
We were on the road & headed to Playa Hermosa on our own! Arrived at Villas Sol within 25 minutes. Since we were on our timeshare, no "inclusive" for us. But we decided to sign up for 3 days of meals & a chance to see all the employees at the restaurant that we got to know while here before. One thing we like about returning to ...
