Great little cabins close to a private beach. Pool on site and friendly hosts. You need a car to get to town but can use a taxi service too. Would definitely recommend it for anyone and families. Basic kitchen for making simple meals.

Richard and Diane are the best hosts out there. They helped us find restaurants/bars, signed us up for great day trips, showed us around the beautiful grounds, and their dogs are incredible. We will be back for sure. Rooms were clean, grounds were very well kept. Only complaint I have is that we didn't spend more time there. The other... More

this place never disappoints, we LOVE it here. this is "pura vida" steps from the beach, pool chill area with hammocks, clean rooms, hot showers, kitchenette with coffee in each room, personal patio, great hosts and reasonably priced! the town is a short walk down the beautiful oceans beach. it can't get any better!

We felt right at home in this cozy cottage. Walks on the beach, swimming in the pool, all close to local businesses in Dominical. We were able to cook at the cottages or go out to one of the many restaurants in the area.

We spent a week at Coconut Grove. We enjoyed floating in the pool, beach walks, friendly dogs and peace and peace! Thanks to Rich and Diane for keeping it real in Costa Rica! We felt like we were transported back in time to what Costa Rica was like when we first visited 20+ years ago. When walking on the beach,... More

We had a great time at the coconut grove. The beach is so peaceful. The pool is clean and its a great vacation. I would return anytime. I saw many iguanas. Many views of the sunrise and sunset. So very beautiful.

Lovely place! From the porch of the nice cabins (including with kitchen) you can see the nice swimming pool, palm trees, and the pacific ocean. You're practically on the beach, so it's easy to witness the beautiful sunsets! From the swimming pool, you can watch the different sorts of birds, and lots of iguana's.

I have to be honest and point out that I hesitate to write this review because I kind of want to keep Coconut Grove a secret. However, I feel that such a wonderful place deserves acknowledgement! My husband and I stayed here for only two nights during a two week whirlwind around Costa Rica. It is one of my favorite... More

There aren't a lot of beachfront places to stay in Dominical and the ones along Dominical beach proper are not quiet (or very nice). Coconut Grove is definitely your best choice for an affordable, peaceful place right on a small beach just a few minutes drive from all the restaurants and shops on Dominical Beach. Cottages were very clean and... More

This place is a secret gem on the beach! Beautiful grounds, spacious lay out, cozy, practical cabins. We absolutely loved it there and would like to come back for a couple of weeks if not a month next time. Richard and Diane and the dogs are great hosts, we had a guard dog from the beginning. Loved the morning walk... More
