We originally booked for just two nights, but Sabina, our host, was able to take us early and we stayed five nights. There were nine in our family. Five stayed in the Casita which has a full kitchen and the rest of us were in two rooms. Bring ear plugs only if you don't want to hear the tropical birds!... More

Very close to the cute town of dominical, just a couple of minutes by car. Sabina (the owner) is a very warm and kind person, she was very... More

This is THE spot to be! Sabina and David, her son, gave us a very warm and friendly welcome in their B&B. The property is at only 5min from Dominical and has an awesome garden and an heavenly saltwater swiming pool. The breakfast is almost entirely homemade with product from the property : fruits jams and cocoa spread, fresh juice,... More

We were so happy that we decided to stay here rather than in Dominical. Just a no frills beautiful place. Sabina was a great host. Easy to talk to and very informative. The only thing is that we would have liked a little more options for breakfast, her fruit and jams were delicious but we got overloaded on fruit. I... More

This property, known as Alma de Hatillo, is located on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, just north of the surfing town of Dominical and at the... More

We spent two nights at Albergue Alma de Hatillo. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is clean, the rooms were comfortable and cozy and the hostess was gracious and lovely. I liked that there was a big gate in front and that the grounds were very secure. The owner grows and makes all the food she serves at breakfast. She... More

We stayed one night. I had been in touch with Sabina and decided not to make a reservation since our plans were not set. Then as we came into the area, we decided to call her and she met us at the gate and showed us to a room. My initial impression of Sabina by email was very good, and... More

Sabina owns this special B&B and takes a lot of pride in her accomplishment. She serves a wonderful organic breakfast, with all ingredients from her property. The salt water pool is really a bonus here. With the lovely new deck, you could spend hours soaking in the pool and listening to all the birds calling. The B&B is gated and... More

No frills, no fuzz, great jam. Lovely views and extremely welcoming and helpful host. There's a gorgeous (almost) undiscovered beach nearby. Having a car is very helpful if you stay several days. Will come back. Thank you!

The cabinas at Albergue Alma de Hatillo are so charming, you may not want to leave. Sabina Koczij-Martin is the quintessential hostess. She made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. The meals were freshly prepared and restaurant quality. Fresh squeezed juices and homemade jams for breakfast were something I looked forward to each morning. Dinner was also delicious and very...
