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

Coconut Grove is one is one of the most beautiful, serene places I've been to. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the beach just in front is almost deserted and has warm (in fact, in some places, hot water), and you fall asleep to the sounds of the waves and geckos chirping. The swimming pool is the place to go when... More

Nice clean cottages It was like staying at your friends house instead of a hotel. Great place to get away and relax. Just be sure to stop at the store before you get there because it's a little far to walk to with a case of Pilsen. If you forget too. Just have Richard call Eric.

We were lucky enough to spend Christmas and New Year in the large beach cottage at Coconut Grove! Richard and Diane are great host, and the booking process is easy and simple. The cottage is equipped with everything to make your stay fantastic. It was clean, with plenty of clean towels and linens! The kitchen is fully equipped and we... More
