Domus Kahuna is situated right in the center of town. Great location, everything is very handy, including a long, long beach for surfing or simply for bathing or sunbathing. The hotel is not sofisticated, small, very clean and well organized. You feel at home and everybody is so friendly including the owner. I enjoyed a lot having breakfast every morning... More

My friend and I shared a cozy two bedroom apartment for two weeks. The owners are very kind and made us feel at home. They were very kind and always tried their best to meet our requests. We didn't have to worry about looking to book tours either because they'll do it for us.The pool is always kept clean and... More

We were travelling with a vehicle and three kids 15, 13 and 6. Our suite had a/c with two rooms with queen beds and a very comfortable pull-out couch. We had a full size... More

Great coffee and complimentary breakfast was served each day. Very nice and accommodating staff ...always willing to help or answer any questions. New sheets and towels would be a nice update ....the price... More

Great place! Safe. Cozy. Great little pool. Comes with breakfast. Eggs, beans and rice. Coffee. Security onsite. Safes in room. Very simple and really clean. The staff is really helpful too. Across the way is a little market to grab bottled water and fruit. Walk to the beach and bars.

I was a little doubtful of staying here because the street seemed a little sketchy and the hotel was very small. But the staff and the overall location of this place made our stay amazing! We stayed for 3 nights in one of the ground floor smaller rooms. Paolo, the owner gave us a great deal as we had just... More

We checked in on a Sunday and stayed seven days. Check in was quick and easy, as was checking out. The accommodations are everything you need, but may be lacking some of the amenities you want. The air conditioner is subpar to american standards, but provides the relief you need from the Costa Rican heat. I had read other reviews... More
