I went for a wedding. The service was friendly and helpful. Brian was a great resource before and during our stay. The reception was held at the hotel which was a great location for a reception. The meal was at the hotel restaurant and the dancing was around the pool area. The grounds are lush and a great backdrop for... More

I had my wedding reception at Doce Lunas. The experience exceeded my expectations. From the beginning, Brian at Doce Lunas, replied to all of our emails quickly unlike some other Costa Rican hotels so that we could make the necessary arrangements with the church, florist, photographers, cake decorator, and other vendors. His staff really made an effort to make sure... More

usually when I travel I'm on the go, and my lodging is just a place to sleep at the end of a long day of adventure. This is the first time in CR that I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel after a good hard surf session. It was just so relaxing and comfortable. The room was huge,... More

Thanks for the great review! I am glad you liked th tipico breakfast, especially since that is my recipe for gallo pinto. Sometimes its the simple things in life, you know? But you have to do them just right. Like washing your guests clothing without jacking up the price. Thanks for noticing! More

The facilities at Doce Lunas were perfect for our needs. We missed our connecting flight and had to e-mail the hotel from the airport to change our pick up time. They did it and sent a confirmation immediately. We arrived in San Jose and our driver was waiting. We arrived at the hotel at midnight. Check in was seamless. The... More

We checked in at 6 pm in the evening and the check in process went smoothly. The front desk gave us the pool towels to use at the pool and told us that we MUST PUT THE SIGN OUTSIDE OUR DOOR TO RECEIVE CLEANING SERVICES or else the staff assumes that you want privacy.

Thanks for the great review, and thanks for sticking up for our neighborhood. I only saw one, but there is a reviewer that denigrates our fine neighbors. This is not Rodeo Drive, but our neighbors are good working people who take pride in their simple homes. You note a couple times our policy of assuming that our guests would prefer... More

Outstanding property, hillside, well manicured with special touches such as rare orchids and a variety of vegetation including edible fruits and the most colorful array of plants and animals. Eco-friendly doesn't sufficiently describe the closeness to nature you experience at Docelunas.

Thanks for the great review! I am glad you enjoyed our special touches. The bath is probably the hardest to come by. We have our own double filtered spring water while most others use municipal water, which doesnt look quite right in a tub. More

The 12 Moons experience was a breath of fresh air and revitalization. Imagine staying in a pristine setting with immaculate accommodations, (big rooms, A/c, beautiful tile, huga bathrooms) fresh food, a beautiful thatched roof bar and restaurant, friendly staff and on-site yoga studio and spa, not to mention the sweat lodge.

Thanks for the great review. I am glad you caught the sweat lodge in action. It was built by a man named gathering hawk, who is certified by a Haida medicine man to lead sweats. Currently it is not up, but anyone who is interested can contact us to check when it will be available. Thanks for mentioning the macaws... More
