They both catered to our every needs/wishes, humored us by answering thousand's of questions, and when it came to celebrating my b-day....Gerald made sure... More

We stayed at another hotel close by, but weren't very pleased with the food. We were getting desperate and went searching online for something else. Then we found Judy. We gave her a call and she offered to come and pick us up in her car for dinner. We arrived at this amazing little boutique B&B with a great atmosphere.... More

I have enjoyed several meals at Vista Hermosa. Dining options are very limited in the Tambor area. Nonetheless, the meals, cocktail service, and atmosphere of this "'mini-resort" are absolutely terrific. Staff is attentive, the meals are prepared exactly as described and also to the patrons taste. I'm eager to get back to Vista Hermosa and see what specialities will be... More

After 5 days in Santa Teresa we decided to find a place closer to the Tambor airport in preparation for our flight to the rain forest. A gut feeling told me to check out Vista Hermosa and I was right. Judith's property is about one of the most beautiful properties I've stayed in Costa Rica and I not only travel... More

Wonderful out of the way piece of paradise. The food was incredible and Judy was the perfect host(ess). The B&B is absolutely gorgeous, clean, luxurious...a vertical oasis. We highly recommend this to all. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Tambor area.

After a long drive from Monteverde we were sweetly welcomed by Adrian, who is the assistant to the owner of Vista Hermosa, a lovely B&B nestled off the beach at Tambor. Judy, the owner, is a fabulous cook and she is a witty conversationist as well. She handled our tour request and we never wanted for anything. Adrian provides great... More

We stumbled upon Vista Hermosa on the internet and couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. Judy is a gracious host: she is helpful, kind, funny, and caring. We stayed at the house overlooking the ocean and it was extremely clean and beautiful. We went on two excursions, snorkeling at Tortuga Island and cheese making, which Judy arranged... More

Thank you for your comments. Long story is...You checked in late evening around 8 pm without a reservation after leaving another hotel that you expressed you were completely dissatisfied with. We were happy to accommodate you. You wished to visit the resort in the area. I did insist that you be driven over and did not charge you for that.... More
