Finding Judy's bed and breakfast what's the best thing that happened to us during our recent vacation in Costa Rica. I gave Judy's bed and breakfast five stars in all areas! Wonderful atmosphere, loving care, good energy and delicious healthy food!

Outstanding, relaxing B&B

A Great Week at Vista Hermosa

4.0 on February 14, 2012

We had a wonderful time during our five days at Villas Vista Hermosa. The food was fresh and delicious and our accommodations were modern, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed walking to the beach and to the local village on a forested pathway with capuchin and howler monkeys to entertain us along the way. We went snorkeling off Isla Tortuga, did skiplining and swam in a natural waterfall pool near Montezuma, and went horseback riding on trails and the beach starting from our B&B. Our hosts arranged all our excursions and looked after us well beyond our expectations. We felt very welcome and relaxed at Villas Vista Hermosa.

Good food, good people, should have stayed longer

Driving on the dirt roads were half the fun but if the thought makes you uneasy, they offer transportation services. The grounds are beautifully kept and have a very natural feel without giving up on a little luxury. We loved walking down to the beach and playing fetch with their dog. We ate in for every meal because Javier was an amazing cook. It was the best salsa I have ever had. Judy and the other guests were great conversation and very helpful. The neighbor even put some air in our tire before we left. Unfortunately, we only go to stay one night. I wish we could have stayed another day to explore the nearby Montezuma area, which was highly recommended.

Great place

I spent 4 days in Villas Vista Hermosa with 2 friends and we had a great time, the place is just perfect for rest, very peaceful , you can lay beside the pool to get a sun tan, enjoy the warm water of the pool of if you prefer there's a beach just 10 min walk. But if you need a little more activities, is near two touristic town with many activities, like surfing, horse riding etc. and there are bars, and restaurants. And the service an attention fo Judy the owner is outstanding, is like be at home with friends. Highly recommended, will definitely go back. Coco (Mexico)

Awesome place for the price! Tranquil, peaceful, good place for a relaxing vacation. The host, Judy, was very friendly and resourceful. I would recommend this place to everyone.

We Loved it here!

My wife and I Loved our stay here. Judy is a first class chef, and the home is nicer than it looks on the web site. We missed our ferry and did not get to Tambour till about 11:00 pm. Judy offered to make us dinner and it was ready when we arrived. We ate in a open air hut with a roof made of palm leaves by the pool. It was so good we had her make us dinner all four nights we stayed there! Judy and her assistant were very happy to see us even at such a late hour. We enjoy going out for nice meals in different restaurants, but why go out when the food was so good and the atmosphere here was wonderful! The pool was warm and clean, the grounds were kept perfect with many beautiful plants and trees, and it is very safe there. They know the local area and were very helpful with where to go and what to do. No disappointments here!
