About this property

Villas in Paradise
Our distinctive beachfront hotel, Villas Hermosas, is located in Playa Hermosa of Santa Teresa, one of Costa Rica's amazing wave gardens on the Pacific Ocean. 

Private Villas with Shared Pool
With a romantic beachfront Honeymoon Suite and 3 spacious poolside Two-Bedroom Family Villas we have accommodations for everyone. Please come and share with us our playful surf, thriving jungle, quiet beaches, stunning sunsets, tropical gardens, and inviting swimming pool, while enjoying all the comforts of home!  This is not your normal hotel, each "room" is actually a free standing house with plenty of room and privacy. The Family Villas surround a wonderful pool with beach entry, perfect for kids. Our location is quiet and private with plenty of room to roam around and best of all the property is beachfront!

Award Winning Location
We are proud winners, 4 years in a row, of Tripadvisor's coveted Travelers Choice Awards for Hotels with Best Service and Santa Teresa has won 3 years in a row for Best Destinations in Central America. Come and see what all of the fuss is about!

Surf and Beach
Depending on swell size and direction there is a multiple peak beach break at Playa Hermosa for all levels within a short walk of your villa. If you don't surf yet this is a wonderful area to learn. Or just enjoy miles of walking along some of Costa Rica's most impressive beaches.
Our beachfront property also includes an almond tree grove which is a unique blend of sandy beach with shade trees, perfect for reading a book, tossing the Frisbee or just relaxing and watching the waves roll in.

This property is located near Playa Hermosa. Not to be confused with other beaches of the same name, this "beautiful beach" has a wide, smooth, flat sand bottom that makes it ideal for surf lessons and beginners - on the inside. It also offers up fun, if inconsistent beach break on the outside for those lucky enough to be there when it happens! Bring the family and make a day of it - and don't forget to check out the tide pools on either side of the beach!

This property is also located near Roca Mar/Suck Rock. A grindy, challenging right hand reef break located at the West end of Playa Santa Teresa. It is also known as "Suck Rock," because the wave jacks up out of deep water, doubling up over a dry reef as it peels across into deeper water. Deep, spitting tubes are the reward for skirting the "Dreaded Spine."

This property is also located near Playa Santa Teresa. A 2km stretch of some of the most consistent beachbreak on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The beach's Southeast/Northwest orientation makes it ideally exposed to swell angles from below 195 to over 220 degrees; although it breaks best with SSW combo swells. While ostensibly a sandbar beach break, the unique bottom configuration of sand over rock reef gives form to the consistently breaking peaks for which Santa Teresa is famous. These well-groomed sandbars offer peaky, punchy rights and lefts that are just plain fun when it is under head high. But the game changes once the swell goes overhead, offering up juicy outside walls that connect into grinding inside barrels.
