Villa del Sueño

1st entrance to Playa Hermosa, 500 m west of main hwy., Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, 50503, Costa Rica

Although the handsome garden restaurant is the main attraction at this elegant hotel, the spacious rooms and well-equipped villas are quite comfortable, too, and the hotel is about a block from the beach. Rooms have beamed ceilings, terra-cotta floors, comfortable mattresses, and tropical color schemes. The smaller "standard" rooms around the small pool are a good deal, and they open onto small terraces with chairs. Larger "superiors" above the restaurant sleep more people, but if you need more room, you're better off springing for a one- or two-bedroom suite in the buildings across the street, which have kitchenettes, large balconies or terraces, and are steps away from a larger pool. The restaurant has excellent food, including filet mignon with a brandy-and-peppercorn sauce, perfectly cooked mahimahi, and garlicky butterfly shrimp. Service is polished but the atmosphere is not stuffy, especially when there's live music in high season.
