Great location. Very comfortable beds. Very friendly staff and owners. Great price and very clean. OT negative might be the weak wifi but was accessible outside the room. The rooster was a rough wake up call but made for a fun memory! Will definitely stay again.

We stayed here a year ago and liked it, so when we came back this year, we stayed here again. Even ended up in the same room. It is clean and comfortable with great air conditioning. Easy to walk to the beach and to restaurants. Made use of the communal kitchen which had everything we needed. We enjoy Dominical and... More

Great, basic accomodation in Playa Dominical. Shared communal kitchen. Alisa and JC do their best to make you feel at home and are helpful with local recommendations. Planned one night but fell in love with the beach and sun, so stayed a second night. Great value for what you get. We would stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights, in one of the air conditioned apartments and would highly recommend it. The room was super clean, the private bathroom was great, and the kitchen held everything we needed. The WIFI worked fine. In hindsight after staying 10 days and in five different hotels up and down Costa Rica's southern zone, this was our... More

I found this place after walking around town for a day looking at all the different hotels and hostels, something my girlfriend and I would be comfortable with. This is by far the best for the price. Stayed here for 10 days. The staff was incredibly helpful and gave us a great deal on our room. Super clean. Private bath... More

We stayed here for three nights - great for the price and would recommend.. The owners are great too which always sells me somewhere! A clean room with two beds and nice sized bathroom. With fan and hammock outside. The place had a lovely relaxed atmosphere - like the rest of Dominical! There is a communal kitchen with a useful... More

I arrived here without a reservation and Alisa made me feel right at home. She was willing to go above and beyond to help and make my stay comfortable. There are several restaurants and laundry service across the street. The hotel is located about a block from the beach and about a five or ten minute walk from the main... More

We had a great stay in one of the cabinas which has a hammock, two beds and a bathroom. Everything was clean, the owners are very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is great. The shared kitchen was super and the beach is just some meters away. Thanks for the great stay!

This little family owned hotel is fantastic. Tucked away on the south side of Dominical, it is quaint and full of charm. Alisa and C.J were wonderful and caring hosts who made us feel at home.The gorgeous entry garden included an herb garden which we used daily for our meals. The rooms were spacious and super clean and the restaurant... More

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...
