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. JC and Alisa were extremely helpful and nice, not just about hotel issues, but also helping guests get around town... More

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.

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.

We stayed at this place after it was recommendation.

It is very unfortunate that you felt uninspired by visiting our little oasis here in Dominical. If guiding and welcoming you to our hotel, sitting with you for an hour+ at 8:30pm to answer questions, and helping you to your room is a “cold manner,” then we would have to agree. We strive to make our guests feel at home... More
