The views at this place are wonderful. Its a waterfront location, with a rocky coast. The waves crash most of the day, sometimes getting up to 20' high. There's a small beach to the left, but you have to travel to get to most locations. Keep in mind, nothing in domincal is close, so a car rental is a must.... More

Views are amazing and the rooms are clean and well decorated. Grounds are well maintained with beautiful flowers. What made our stay extra special was the service we received from Sarah. She was professional and prompt in emailing and the reservation process, and went above and beyond in helping us with transportation and other arrangements. Thank you Sarah for all... More

We spent our spring break vacation at Costa Paraiso, with 3 kids - 11,9,6. We had a wonderful time, and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. Sarah set up several tours, helped with shuttle service to/from San Jose, and arranged a rental car for us. Dominical is a nice seaside town, and there are many activities within an hour's... More

This was our second stay at Costa Paraiso, and this time had friends and family with us and occupied all 5 rooms. Right at Dominicalito beach, with views from our porch of the ocean and tropical garden surroundings, Costa Paraiso is a beautiful place. The spacious and spotless Dolphin room easily accommodated our family of five, kids aged 14, 12... More

We stayed two nights in the Toucan Nest. This room is better than the others as it is more secluded. Wifi was not accessible from the room. Other rooms are facing the parking lot. The ocean just a 5 minute walk from there is really nice to swim in. The best thing about this place is the restaurant. The food... More

I live in Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica and Costa Paraiso is my favorite get-away spot. The restaurant located there, PorQue No?, is wonderful as well. I am particularly fond of the beach area at this location. There are marvellous tide pools in the rock formations and huge rocks to explore at low tide. Because of the line of rocks off... More

Spent 7 days at Costa Paraiso and had a great, comfortable stay. 5 nights in Monkey room and 2 in Pelican which comes complete with stove and medium size fridge.
