The staff, grounds, breakfast, view (from our room only) were amazing. Only one room has a view of the ocean, rest overlook the restaurant. The bed linens, although I believe they were clean, we're old and stained. The door to the room had gaps in it large enough to see right into the room. The water pressure in the shower... More

My family of 5 really enjoyed our 3 days in the Dolphin cabin. The room was a little tight for 5 but that was expected since it was intended for max 4. Still it was terrific. The hotel's location was outstanding right on a beautiful stretch of coast. These couple hundred meters of coast were rocky (and incredibly scenic) so... More

We stayed here on our way to San Jose to Cabo Matapalo - liked it so much we booked a room for our return trip at the end of the week. Great midway spot, secluded beach, private rooms with plenty of space. We were traveling with our two kids (8 - 10) and it was perfect. Pool is right next... More

My husband and I, traveling with our little dog stayed two nights at Costa Paraiso. Our entire stay was wonderful. (Take some insect spray) Jo and Shelby, a wonderful young couple managing the restaurant, were so nice and personable. Sandra is a really sweet young lady that manages the hotel. It's true, the rooms are basic but they have a... More

If you are driving down the coast from Quepos, pass the turn off for Playa Dominical and you will find this hotel about 2 km down on your left. We stayed in Monkey and our friends stayed in Dolphine. They have 5 cute named cabinas on the hill. Both were simple, but clean spaces. It was exactly what we were... More

We stopped here for one night to split up the drive down to Pavones. The room was super comfortable, the AC worked great which is rare for Central America, the food was amazing, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. If we had a few more days to spare we would have stayed longer and enjoyed all the amenities.... More

This is a small and well-kept hotel on the southern edge of Playa Dominical that overlooks a rocky coast. You will be greeted by a welcoming staff that speaks fluent English, Spanish and it sounded like bits of other European languages as well. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a small kitchen area available for preparing small meals.... More
