This was our sixth annual visit to Diane and Richard's paradise site in Dominical. Astonishing sunsets. Miles of lonely beach walking. Our cabin sits at the foot of the rainforest where the sand begins. We fall asleep to the sound of waves on the shore. Local restaurants and music offer up great flavours and happiness. We have already booked again... More

This was our second trip to Coconut Grove and will not be our last. The owners Richard and Diane treat you as family and it feels like you are right at home. It is a very laid back place that is perfect for relaxing and walking the beach. But a short drive in either direction on coastal highway takes you... More

I'm really late in writing this review as my friend and I spent 7 days at Coconut Grove back in March/April 2010 but I had to eventually take the time to write a review because Coconut Grove truly is a fantastic place to stay. Dominical was our first stop on a 3 week long vacation and Coconut Grove was a... More

We spent 10 wonderful days in Dominical for our honeymoon. It was 104 degrees in Richmond when we left, and never got above the mid 80s in Costa Rica. We didn't turn on our AC once during our stay. Our house at Coconut Grove was the perfect homebase as we explored the southern Pacific Coast. The property is right on... More

We were invited to a friend's wedding in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica but we knew we wanted to see less commercialized versions of Costa Rica before the wedding festivities began. Fortunately we stumbled across Dominical and the Coconut Grove in Fodor's 2010 edition. Outside of our friend's wedding our stay at the Coconut Grove was definitely the highlight of our... More

Dominical is located on the South Pacific Coast in Costa Rica. I spent last weekend there because I wanted to see & feel how wonderful this place is. I heard lots of good things about Dominical and about the place I stayed - Coconut Grove - I am from Costa Rica but never had the chance to stay more than... More

Coconut Grove is a wonderful place to escape and enjoy a spotless, classy and relaxing bit of paradise. Buildings and grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained, the atmosphere is casual and relaxing, and you can feel your cares blowing away with the breezes off the ocean just off your doorstep. We rented cabins 1 and 2, and the beds were... More

Their site doesn't do them justice. The grounds are very clean and lush and the cottages are adorable. Only thing missing is TV/Cable and a restaurant and this place would have it all!!! You're a hop, skip and a jump from the beach and they have a nice pool on the premises that they keep very clean. they have a... More

On a beautiful chunk of ocean front Costa Rica, just south of Dominical, a throw back to a more peaceful time. Diane and Richard are the gracious hosts and have created a tropical paradise that you can enjoy as you relax and listen to the melodic sounds of the ocean and wildlife. The back porch of the big house was... More

Coconut Grove is as good as you can get on this section of the Pacific coast, if not for hours around. Having the ocean there and the option of a pool and a shelter in the shade were great. We own a resort in Ontario, Canada and if you want a housekeeping cottage on the ocean in a less developed... More
