    I'd vote the backyard bar hotel:

    http://www.backyardhotel.com/

    or the Terraza:

    http://www.terrazadelpacifico.com/

    both are very nice and have lost of tourist type things for you to choose from.

    If you've got some dough to throw around family friendly safe and ridiculously nice place to stay is Marriott Los Suenos its like five minutes from Jaco and ten maybe fifteen minutes from Hermosa and has a decently priced taxi service to get you there if you dont rent a car check it out it

    I stayed at the Backyard hotel a few years back it is perfect. Literally 3 steps to the surf and very inexpensive you can get a sweet for cheap which would be good for 3 people. Be prepared the town of Hermosa is a tad sketchy plenty of prosititues so may want to warn the wife so she isn't alarmed. Easy to avoid just something to be aware of...surf is great and there is plenty else to do for the rest of the family.

    HAHAHA. Hermosa is a tiny little quiet strip of beach didn't see any hookers. You have to be thinking about Jaco the only thing anyone ever said to us in Jaco was "You need cocaine?"

    I used to love Dominical. I had not been there is probably 6 years and went back this past August. Granted we were only there for a few hours and it was the rainy season, but the beach and water was horrible. I have never seen so much debree (wood and other crap, not trash) on a beach in my life. They used to maintain the beach, not sure if they have stopped due to the economy or what. I am not sure I will ever return.
    Depends on what you are looking for, and how long you are going. You can have fun in Hermosa, and you will not have a problem seeing prostitutes walking around during the day, but you may have some drug offers in Jaco, but Hermosa is mellow. I personally would recommend some place comlettely different, and splitting your time between at least two places. PM me if you want and I can give you some ideas, I know the country pretty well and there is tons to see/do.
