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...

We stayed in the cabin for 2 nights. Sabina was very kind and helpful. Breakfast is excellent with jams and spreads made from fruit from the garden. Our kids loved the pool and cabin. We changed our plans for the rest of our trip based on Sabinas advice, all turned out excellent.

Hostess Sabina has built a gorgeously nestled, super smart collection of air-cooled bungalows into the jungle mountainside. With loving attention to detail, and a deep commitment to the environment, she's created a small paradise on earth. She's chosen to not have A/C in the rooms, which we found to be sufficiently cool due the cleverly designed ceiling vents. Fruit literally... More

We stayed here with friends based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we're not disappointed. Sabina, the owner, was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and although there is no a/c they were very comfortable at night being well ventilated. The pool is nice with views out over the sea. The eating area is very pleasant and the... More

I travel in different areas of Costa Rica often, when I am near Dominical, I go a few minutes N to Hattilo , directly off the highway to a very relaxing,comfortable stay with Sabina at the Albergue Alma de Hatillo. About 5 years ago , I was lucky enough to find Sabina and the Alma. Nothing against surfers or Dominical,... More

This place is 25 miles from Quepos. It's at Dominical. It's right off the main highway so it's LOUD. It really is just OK, like more then $30 is too much. No A/C. Grounds are nice, owner tries hard, but this really isn't a "hotel" more like a B&B but in cabins.

I recommend this comfortable place of retreat for anyone who appreciates well designed and immaculately clean, comfortable rooms, jungle song with back tones of surf in the near distance, a salt water pool, cheerful staff and the delicious cooking of the wonderful Didi. What really makes it special however, is Sabina the gracious hostess intent on caring for you and... More

This was a wonderful home/garden.....high up with lots of birds. It was very close to the highway and our room was noisy and the bed not comfortable. We really liked our gracious hostess . Sabina did everything possible for everyone. Beautiful person . The room included lovely fruit and some delicious toppings for bread. (too bad it was not good... More

Sabina's inviting and comfortable oasis in Hatillo (6 km from Dominical and close to Uvita) is the peaceful place to stay if you are visiting this area. As a solo traveler, Sabina took the best care of me both prior to and during my stay there which helped me make the most of my time. She has a gem in... More
