The rooms are a bit older and the water stopped working in the mornings so we couldn't flush the toilet for a bit in the mornings. There were other people there with children and we could sonetimes hear them through the wall. Other than... More

We stayed in the Dolphin room and it was great. Very clean, nice amenities. They had a tank of water for you to be able to refill bottles. You could rent surfboards and walk to Dominicalito Beach to surf. The restaurant had excellent food and a spectacular view. We also really enjoyed the pool, where we could watch toucans flying...

"Pura Vida"... pretty much sums it up. No frills or hype needed, just beautiful days enjoyed in the sun on an amazing section of coastline in Dominical, CR.

Beautiful grounds, great restaurant onsite, nice staff, FANTASTIC room. Cons: power outages, lost all water pressure; road noise overnight. Still not enough to make me NOT want to stay there again - I would, any time.
