We had the pleasure of spending several great days in Costa Rica.The unit was just as pictured.So nicely decorated and well maintained.Provided everything we needed. Sean was very helpful. He sent information to us so that we would have everything we needed prior to our arrival? The view was spectacular, overlucking the beach.The beach was only a 4 min walk. There were also great restaurants near by.We will definitely be back and stay here again. Thanks again, Mary

I had a wonderful relaxing, romantic, nature filled get away week in a place I\'ve always wanted to visit, Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica. The owner of this delightful property clearly cares about making every detail of your holiday perfect! From the moment I arrived, the VIP concierge service arranged everything from transportation to and from the airport, to getting groceries along the way, to recommending the best local cuisine, to trips into Coast Rica\'s rain forest to Zip Line through the Jungle, to an afternoon sunset sail to snorkel and explore nearby deserted beaches where monkeys roamed wild. There\'s so much to do, I want to go back to experience it all again...of course there\'s always an option to stay put and swim, read, or take a jacuzzi on the first floor patio of the complex. The duplex has all modern amenities. It\'s impeccably clean. The space has a great flow, shoji screens to divide spaces for privacy, a wide open living room / kitchen and bedrooms with large flatscreen TV\'s for family and friends to congregate, with a fantastic view of the mountains and the sea beyond. Lastly, compared to other 5 star places I\'ve rented, the owner has amassed an amazing art collection from artists who live in the Central American region. This touch, makes for great ambience. In addition, the place is filled with handcrafted furniture made by a local artisans. The beach is only a 5 minute walk down the road. If your lucky, you\'ll be able to see or hear monkeys along the way. Along the beachfront, you\'ll find amazing ocean front restaurants which serve locally caught fish, experience delightful blue waters to swim in, and take in vistas of the mountains beyond. Lastly, I have to say I\'ve travelled the world over, and I can honestly say I\'ve never met a more friendly people...the Costa Rican people are inviting and gracious, and exude happiness. Take all of these ingredients combined, and you have the makings of an amazing holiday getaway!!!

Clean, light, modern upscale, gorgeous views, 3 min walk to beach & restaurants.

Fantastic location, lovely setting, did yoga & tai chi on open terrace on top floor & on deck by private pool on property. Plus super short easy walk (basically flat)to beach & back made life easy & relaxed. Property is beautifully maintained, private gate with parking, security guard always there, but felt totally safe didn\'t need him, he was really friendly. Great restaurants close by, had amazing day sailing, snorkeling & massages at the condo thanks to manager recommendations, plus had incredible day zip lining, & thermo pools at Rio Perdido, easy & scenic1hr drive from condo. And having lots of amenities was appreciated by everyone for the flat screen TV movie night. Best of it all, saw monkeys in the trees down the road, some beautiful birds, walked the lovely beach & swam, then felt so nice to walk in to air conditioning, clean inviting space, settle in & relax. Perfect combination of modern luxury condo in beautiful natural area. Not enough time to do everything we wanted. Property manager was amazing in arranging everything we wanted. Would definitely come back here.

Elegant and Comfortable

ElCubil is beautiful and extremely comfortable. The unit is perfectly equipped with all the comforts of home including a large TV, blenders, hairdryers, beach towels, and a laundry room. (So don\'t worry about packing everything, it is there for you). It was surprisingly easy to get to and perfectly located steps from the beach in Playa Hermosa. So many other properties are built high on the hillsides and difficult to get to I was very happy we could easily walk to the beach and restaurants. That said, the view from the livingroom, master bedroom, and private terrace are lovely. I could relax and stare at the coastline and ocean all day long.

We booked a couples retreat for my wife and I with 2 other couples.. it was only 4 days and now I wish it was for a week. The place truly elevated our vacation a few levels. All the comforts of a true 5 star resort while maintaining the local vibe.. can\'t wait to go back.. definitely the one of the best places to stay in Playa Hermosa
