We had the best time ever at liquid magic surf resort. It is a wonderful place to stay, the guesthouses are clean and comfy and Caroline and Eugene are the perfect hosts. Before our trip i had a lot of correspondence with Caroline, and she was really nice and helpful and we owe her a perfect 30th birthday party.

My only hesitation in writing this review is that we'll spoil the tranquility of the area by letting everyone in on a wonderful secret. We absolutely loved our stay with Caroline and Eugene. The setting is peaceful and beautiful, the rooms, pool and covered dining/bar areas were casual, comfortable and clean, the space is large and intimate at the same... More

Eugene and Caroline are great hosts and know everyone in the area. Great insider info for the area and really nice place to chill. I rent a 4x4 to enjoy the area and if it rains you need one to get to Liquid Magic. You don't have to surf to enjoy this spot, nice pool, beautiful plants and lots of... More

Loved the setting, the views, the nature, the surf, and Dominical. Liquid Magic's cabinas were clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the quiet natural seclusion. I've known Eugene, the owner, for a few years and he's a first class guy. Eugene, Caroline are, as others have said, perfect hosts.

Eugene and Caroline are by far the most hospitable couple Ive ever had the pleasure of staying with. A southern couple by birth, their true southern rootsy charm is evident the moment you step through the doors of Liquid Magic Surf Resort. Both go out of their way to accommodate their guests, which for us translated into one of the... More

I have stayed here twice...once with adults and once with my grandchildren (ages 4 and 2 years)! The owners (Eugene and Caroline) are perfect hosts. The cabinas are so nice and the pool was so clean (perfect for early morning or after beach swim!) You're close to beautiful beaches and restaurants but you feel so secluded! Perfect vacation spot!

I highly highly recommend Liquid Magic Surf Resort to anyone traveling through Costa Rica. The owners, Eugene & Caroline Mitchell, have created a beautiful resort that is tucked away in the hills of Dominical. They are two of the most friendly, accommodating, and gracious hosts I have ever met in my travels. They can give you tips on local restaurants... More

Me, my husband and our young daughter (3 years old, so yes, this place is kid friendly) just came back and had a truly amazing time. This was a perfect place to relax and unwind and forget about everything. The accommodation is simple but beautiful, and only offers two rooms. The owners, Eugene (a surfer who grow the bamboo and...

Pura Vida!! Not sure where to start re: my trip. First and foremost, I would like to thank the owners of "Liquid Magic Surf Resort," Eugene and Caroline Mitchell. They could not have been more accommodating, positive, wonderful people if they tried. I am a female traveler who went to Costa Rica to grieve the loss of my husband. I... More

My wife and I stopped through this place at the recommendation of the owner's cousin (good friend of ours). It is the perfect combination of convenient proximity to town (Dominical) and secluded perfection. It is just enough off the beaten path to feel totally removed from everything. They property is gorgeous, made almost entirely of local wood - with an... More
