Hermosa Cove rests on 12 acres of lush landscape and a quiet, private cove. Guests enjoy bungalow-style accommodations with two-story, one-bedroom villas featuring private pools. Two- and three-bedroom villas are great for families, providing accommodations for up to six. Larger families can also book adjoining villas to be within steps of one another. Hermosa Cove features two sandy beaches, the serene Cove Beach and the more active water sport beach, Christopher’s Beach. A large, cascading pool leads the way to the see, where families can snorkel and kayak. Two hiking paths take guests around the resort’s 12 acres.
Onsite dining is available at Christopher’s, which offers complimentary breakfast and farm-to-table dinners. For lunch, visit the beachfront Broken Rudder for casual dining, and grab a drink at Isabella’s Rum Bar as the sun sets every evening. Villas feature fully equipped kitchens, and concierge can stock your kitchen with whatever you would like, and add a grill to your patio. Personal chefs are available to cook for your family in your villa, as well.

Such a lovely hotel, well planned out, relaxing and focused on your comfort and pleasure. Great food and drink available, great service and ideally located for Ochi's centre. Nothing bad to say, as near to perfect as you can get.
I could not wait to go back to Hermosa Cove Villas this July. The morning of the departure, after discovering that my flight was delayed, I called Klent, the manager and told him that I would not arrive until the next day and this is what he said; “ Lady Arous do not worrie , I will move your reservation to the next day and also change the day and time of the pick up from the airport”.
Just like that he put me at ease. Thank you Klent!
Next day upon my arrival , I was treated like a family by everyone. They remembered me from the last trip and everyone I ran into, including the Gardner , who greeted me by my name!
Since they remembered my habits, my breakfast was served sometimes on the other side of the Resturant , on the beach by the amazing pools. Afternoon cocktail was delivered to me in the hummock (drinks are amazing:). Very quickly I forgot the delays at the airport. I was in magical space where the grounds breathe the couture of native artist. I learned that Mr. Clayton has a workshop where the artist work with him and create the most amazing sculptures from native wood, plants and flowers.
Pictures don’t do a justice unless you actually spend time there. What was interesting that lots of the locals do dine in the Resturant , which makes it destination for everyone and speaks highly about the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff. These is where employees are treated with respect and you can feel how proud they are to be representing not just the Hermosa villas but also their beautiful culture.
One of the afternoons when the water sports advised that the weather was perfect for kayaking, we went ( about 10-15 min) where the ocean and the Ocho river meet. It’s magical when you move from salt water to the river. I took so many pictures , it was like being in the jungle with so many lush plants spilling over the river, so much beauty. Make sure you take that tour .
So to sum it up and help you great travelers, regardless if you are a big family or traveling solo, there are Villas for everyone’s size and taste. Each villa is carefully designed to have its own character .
I am talking to few of my friends to join me at the Sea Biscuit Villa, which has 3 bedroom and it is on the ocean???? hope to return in January of 2020.
I own a Bussiness in the states and I trive to deliver best service and experience to my guests/clients. So when I take a brake for vacations or simply go out to eat, I expect the same service.
Hermosa villas resort delivers just that and more.
Been to many different resorts , all inclusive and more and they are fine but there is nothing like Hermosa cove .
Thank you everyone at Hermosa, I will return in January with friends and share my experience of love and peace and great respect for everyone,
