Wonderful unit. Very private for a condominium complex.
Thankful we switched from Coco beach to Hermosa Heights.
The management is very friendly.
The theatre is awesome; better than most theatres in most cities.
The infinity pool in our unit was too cold but we fixed that by having the property manager turn the pump on during the hottest part of the day using the sun to heat it up a bit.
The main pool was an absolute blast and was pretty much all ours whenever we used it. The little water slides are wicked fast!
The mini-golf was fun but is in dire need of maintenance.
The security staff were very friendly.
Loads of linens, towels, beach towels, laundry soap and utensils but you do need to bring your own condiments.
We bought and left an HDMI cable so you can watch Netflix if you have your own player (as I do).
The grocery store down the road is cheaper than the larger one in Coco Beach and well stocked.
Parking is $2 everywhere but you don't need to worry about your contents as there is always a person watching over it - well worth the $2.
Playa Hermosa is a laid back beach with many options for restaurants.
Playa del Cocos is more like Playa del Carmen (but much smaller) in Mexico. Much more activitiy there.
Monkey trail is a great road in the dry season. If you rented a car don't worry about taking it on that road. Take the 'Upper' road as opposed to the 'River road' when you are provided that option unless you have a 4X4 or a strong sense of adventure.
Bernal at Tico tours (along with Marco and Juan Carlos) are super fun. I highly recommend them!!!
We took a trip to Rio Celeste. I'm from Canada and have driven MANY back roads. You really need to be courageous to take a non 4X4 up to Rio Celeste from the main road. We stopped at the Info Centre in Bijagua and they connected us to Jorge Luis Soto of Rio Celeste Backpackers. He not only drove us up to the park but also walked with us and showed us things we would NEVER have seen. (My wife and I are both avid campers so I do not state this lightly. All this for $80! A real bargain! Red eyed frogs, sloths, howlers, 2 types of touans, etc. All in less than 3 hours!)
We're coming back for sure!
