The neighborhood

Playa Hermosa is a small beach town known worldwide for its surfing, especially after it hosted the world surf championship a few years back. Saturday afternoons many surfers and surf fans do fight for parking spots in the afternoon to witness world-class surfing at the Saturday afternoon weekly surf meets hosted by the Backyard Hotel. Small restaurants, surf shops and other retail are located on the beach which is a 20 min walk or a 2 minute car ride. A yoga center is within 300 meter walking distance. Surf lessons, Zipline booking, horseback riding and other activities can be also booked in the office. Due to the towns location near virgin tropical mountains, you will likely see Scalet macaws on a daily basis. Iguanas roam around the trees, roof and all over the property.

Getting around

The property is located 1.5 hours from San Jose and 10 minutes away from the town of Jaco, where you will find ATMs, nightlife, restaurants, supermarkets and all sorts of retail. Costa Rica is notorious for bad roads and bad signage. For most flexibility, it is recommended you hire a 4x4 with low mileage and either bring or rent a GPS. If you plan to party at night, taxis can easily be hired for pick up and will be available in town for drop off. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the beach and restaurants at the Hermosa beach. For a nominal charge, when the shuttle is available, we can offer rides to Jaco.

Ok so the room was clean and nice, the bed was comfortable but as a single guy that was planning to party in jaco on NYE and get some sleep during the day it wasn't really quite and I wasn't comfortable because they had a couple of families with their kids (not their fault, I'm simply sharing my experience) and the room is right in front of the pool I can hear the kids jumping in the pool with the screaming and all. The girl at the front office was really nice but when I first checked in I didn't get any information at all about how to get to the beach or jaco or if I would like to book any activities through them, they only answered me when I asked and that was a bit shocking. It's not 20 minutes walking to hermosa beach it's 51 minutes walking according to maps if you can easily walk on a highway . They had shuttle to the beach but I had to tell them by an hour before which I also figured out too late by asking not them telling me. Rachel told me the 2nd day when she took me to jaco about a couple of places to eat say her recommendations was nice but I felt she didn't care enough. In general I recommend this place to a family or a couple but not for a for a single dude or a bunch of friends that into partying.

Thanks for the review Michael, I would agree with you we are not the hotel to rent a room at if you are looking to party in Jaco and bring girls back in the night. We are a small hotel away for the party in Jaco which is why most people like us. When you arrived you were quiet abrasive with Vanessa because the room was not yet ready and was well before the check-in time. Again as a small hotel we are very busy with holidays and almost every room and villa needed to be changed that day, not your fault, but you were not very understanding. Because you were abrasive on arrival, it is likely Vanessa was a little reluctant to talk to you about the options for activities in the area as you expressed that you just wanted to get in the room and rest. As for the walk to Hermosa beach, the beach is about 1 km which is less than a mile, so I'm confused as to why it would take 51 minutes to walk there?? As for me not caring, I am insulted, I took the time to ask you questions about your work and try to get to know you. As for the shuttle service, we offer free rides to the beach and restaurants in Hermosa, because we care about our guests and don't want them to have to walk in the heat the 1 km to the beach. But as we are not the Marriott we don't have a person that runs the van, it is us (my husband & I) and we work at the hotel and occasionally have a life outside of the hotel, so we ask that if you would like a ride we get advance notice, so we can arrange it. Again thanks for the review and we appreciate that you found our rooms clean and comfortable.

Jon and I manage a small hotel and manage several houses in the Playa Hermosa/Jaco area. We live in a Pura Vida bubble, why not come visit??

The surroundings are beautiful, the food is full of flavor and the surf is exciting!!
