We found this resort via TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. A small resort with cottages near the pounding surf of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, it was relaxing, exciting, full of very interesting people- and quickly became our home. The beds were extremely comfortable (especially after a long day surfing, ziplining or any of the other incredible activities available),... More

This was the first stop on our trip to Costa - I honestly did not want to leave when it came time to check out! The grounds are beautiful and you really feel like you have the whole resort to yourself since it's so small. Also, the restaurant that is on-site was amazing!!

We were in CR for 11 days and this was our favorite place we stayed. Exceptional staff and beautiful place. We will stay here again on our next visit to dominical. The restaurant was very good also. Loved the ping pong by the pool.

We stayed in the Toucan Nest for two nights and loved it. The room is very secluded and the view is beautiful. The entire property is gorgeous, but you really should try for this room. It felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and it was very relaxing to just lay in bed and watch the waves crashing.... More

This hotel is a little ways from the main road/beach of Dominical but the rooms, view, and food here are worth it! We mistakenly went into town for dinner the first night and found out later that the restaurant at this hotel is ranked one of the best in the area. Unfortunately, they are closed for dinner on Mondays then... More

This hotel is beautiful and the amenities were extremely convenient. It was wonderful to have a full refrigerator and freezer after traveling in the heat and no electricity in our previous location. Sarah was extremely patient and accommodating helping us get some much needed laundry done among other things. The restaurant is outstanding and our waiter Eric was friendly and... More

The rooms are spacious, immaculate and tastefully decorated. There's a "kitchenette" with coffee maker and microwave, and abundant filtered/purified water is provided. The view, particularly from the restaurant, was outstanding. It's a different type of ocean view; it's a wild and crazy surf crashing against the enormous rocks on the beach. Absolutely mesmerizing! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the... More

When planning this trip, one of the things we wanted was to have a hotel on the Pacific Coast that was right on the water. After reading the stories about the mob scenes at Manuel Antonio we wanted to go somewhere else. The agency that organized our trip suggested Dominical/ Uvita and booked this hotel. It was a great choice.... More

We stayed a week in the toucan and loved every minute of it! The room is spacious with everything you need including mini fridge, coffee pot, glasses, dishes etc. They even provide you with a large water cooler to make coffee and fill up your water bottles. The patio area is so private and relaxing with hammock, table and chairs... More

My wife and I ended up booking a few too many nights in Quepos surrounding our visit to Manuel Antonio. My recommendation - DON'T STAY IN QUEPOS. There's nothing to do there and the town is kind of dirty. Plan your Manuel Antonio visit around Dominical/Dominicalito instead, and book this hotel. It's beautiful, the restaurant is fantastic, the pool is... More
