We were at Huerteras Dec23 to 30. There were only us and another family the first week at the hotel, quiet and completely relax. We stayed at the second floor villa with 2 bedrooms 2 bath and a kitchenette. There’s a small grocery store next to the hotel, where u can get all u need. 20 mins walk is a bigger grocery store. The beach is 100 meters away, you can swim n walk back and wash off at the hotel, very convenient. There are quite a few restaurants nearby, good and reasonable price ~15 to 20$/meal. Playa Hermosa is a volcanic black sandy beach, mostly local. There are touts at the beach for snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing. A big plus at Playa Hermosa beach is feeling of being part of the local, we are just among the Ticos enjoying their beach.
The hotel is basic yet very functional, with very helpful front desk ladies, Elizabeth, Dajayat, Laura, and the young manager Vinicius, who is trying hard to improve the hotel. I can see good things ahead for Huerteras. If u r looking for a relaxing family vacation, give Huerteras a call.
Pura Vida!

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica, because it was close to Liberia airport. We were here on a weeknight, and the hotel was nearly empty. This is a very modest hotel, although it does have recreational amenities, including the pool, a basketball net, and well-used ping-pong and billiard tables. Our room was tiny, basic, and very, very worn. The manager explained to us that the hotel caters almost exclusively to Costa Rican locals who come for the weekends, at which times the hotel is very busy. The town feels down-at-the-heels, although we did find an enjoyable beachfront place (the "Aqua Sport") for an evening drink.

Solid hotel choice if you're spending some time in Playa Hermosa. A short walk to the beach (and within earshot of the spectacular vocalizations of the troops of "mono congo" or howler monkeys that hang out nearby), this place has the feel of an unassuming family resort-like hotel -- not too fancy, with a decent pool and areas for lounging, playing pool, etc. Rooms were simple but clean (villas have their own coffee-makers, whereas regular rooms do not -- something to consider if you want coffee before 7am when the local restaurants/coffee shops open). The compound features a very good restaurant (see my review elsewhere for Coco Viquez). Shower in our room had the typical " shower head of death" that features a heating element to warm up the water as it passes through; normally I'm a fan, but this one never worked (nor did others in our group's rooms). Finally, during our stay, several large educational tour high-school student groups came through for a night or two, which meant some loud drama going on outside our rooms until after 10pm. Despite all of that, I would return here - comfortable, friendly, and nicely located.

We stayed one night at this family-friendly beach town hotel. The staff was super-sized but the rooms need help. Our shower was lukewarm at best and there was no water pressure. The bedsheets were cardboard.

Not recommended but none can survive.

This was a great room. The gardens and pool were wonderful. The staff very friendly and helpful and our room neat and clean. The breakfast was a full buffet with lots of choices. We appreciated that we were given a room without reservation and with a nice weekday discount.
