The rooms are quite comfortable and it is well located to a number of small restaurants and bars. The beach is at the door step but it looks a little dangerous for just general swimming. The room rates are reasonable.

My wife came across Surf Inn Hermosa while searching for a vaction spot in Costa Rica. The Surf Inn website really showed off the property. The live surf webcam is a nice touch. Christina replied to our email inquires right away and answered all our questions. She had several good suggestions for resturants and adventures. Ex. - Ocean Ranch Park...

It was two in the morning, I had been flying and driving for 24 hours and needed a place to stay. I saw this hotel and took a chance. The security guard spoke only Spanish but was very patient with this worn out Gringo and was able to help me get to my room. It was pretty clean; however, there...

We ended up at Surf Inn after our original condo fell through. The black sand beaches are beautiful and right outside the hotel. It is small but nice and everyone was super friendly and accommodating. We plan on returning to Costa Rica and would stay here again.

A review won't do this trip justice. I traveled to Playa Hermosa solo on a Surf/Yoga/Fitness package with Christina! I enjoy traveling and being active, so I figured this would make sense and it far exceeded expectations. Christina gets to know you and what you like and then suggests activities for you to partake in over your stay. During the...

The Surf Inn is located just seconds from Playa Hermosa beach, which makes this a really special place. We had a kitchenette in our room, and that allowed us to cook our own meals rather than eat out. I really appreciated that. The owner, Christina, goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have a wonderful stay. There are...

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful my stay was at Surf Inn Hermosa.
