We had a terrific experience, family of 4, here in side-by-side cabinas. Absolutely indebted to Alisa and JC who were incredibly generous hosts, always ready with aid and information (allowing us to call the car rental company from the office phone at night when the car broke down!), but completely unobtrusive while maintaining gorgeous little hideaway on a quiet road...

Although we arrived way before check-in time and without reservation, we were welcomed by the owner and she made sure our cabina would be ready soon. In the meantime we could leave our luggage with her so we could do some shopping and start our vacation immediately. The cabina was really spacious and clean with an own hammock on the... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in Dominical at Montanas de Agua and we had an excellent experience there. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The management and staff are kind, attentive and very helpful. Their prices are perfect, in my opinion. It's a great value, so we splurged and went for the room with AC. When we return,... More

I have stayed at MDA twice now in Dominical. Excellent cabinas with air conditioning and Wi-Fi. Excellent stop over for going to the Osa Peninsula.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with a private bathroom. We did not have AC but had a powerful fan and some of the rooms do have AC. The grounds were very well kept and the communal kitchen was the cleanest I have seen. Highly recommended.

Montanas de Agua is a great option for Dominical. The rooms are clean, the grounds are beautiful, the a/c and wifi are reliable and the communal kitchen is a great way to keep food costs down and meet fellow guests.

This is an excellent option with ac, wifi (that actually works) and a really nice garden area. Its an easy walk to the beach, and down a side street that feels quiet and safe. just far enough from the nightlife that you wont hear the endless dance music. Close enough to "downtown" that you can walk to the restaurants/parties and... More

The owners are super lovely and helped us organise our transportation. We were only staying overnight en route to the Nicoya peninsula but this hotel was excellent value at $30 a night for a private cabina with bathroom, very clean and ultra basic but perfect for what we needed.
