This place is a little full of itself to charge $150 for a super basic room with 'ocean view'. The hotel is pretty much beach front, but they don't show the ocean views on the website because the rooms have a view of the small over crammed parking lot with a partial view behind it. We stayed in the Pelican... More

We got our dates mixed up, went to check in a day early and the rooms were all full. Sandra, the manager, was SO helpful phoning hotels within a 50 km radius for 2 hours in between her other duties, until we found a room. We were so grateful! When we did check in, the Toucan's Nest cabin was beyond... More

For the past three years, my husband and I have chosen Costa Paraiso as our “our home away from home” when vacationing in Costa Rica. The reasons that we continually return to Costa Paraiso are abundant. The breathtaking oceanfront location, immaculate tropical grounds, comfortable and spacious cabanas, outstanding personalized service and Por Que No? restaurant and its exceptional dining experience...

Our first trip to Costa Rica was last week, we stayed here for 3 nights. The room was the Toucan room and it was very spacious and clean. The room has a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker and water for drinking. The deck looked out over the pacific ocean and we enjoyed hanging out in the hammock. Sandra was so... More

We had a great stay at Costa Paraiso, traveling with friends who had stayed there 2 years ago and liked it enough to return! The Dolphin room was great - lots of space, nice kitchen, and very clean. The pool is a nice way too cool down, the rocking chairs on the front porch a great place to relax. The... More

Costa Paraiso is a perfectly laid out small resort. It has nicely appointed large rooms with high ceilings and comfortable porches with great views. The entire staff is very friendly and attentive. A very refreshing pool with ocean views and most likely the best restaurant in Dominical make it hard to beat. I also give high marks to the roller... More

The bungalow style hotel has a very nice atmosphere and we were greeted with an incredible staff, buildings were well maintained, with beautiful gardens and sunset views. My daughter forgot two teddy bears at the hotel room, which were promptly shipped to our home in the US ---- nice touch! Thank you!

Stayed for 4 nights in the Coconut Room, the last week in January. Since we were 2 couples traveling together, our friends stayed in the adjoining Monkey Room. What a wonderful experience we had. Our room was very spacious, had a full size refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave, and large bottled water on the counter. I was happy that the shower... More

Such a pleasure to dine at Por Que No… hard to fine a restaurant with fantastic views, great ambiance and delicious, healthy food. Not to mention the hospitality of Jo and Shelby to ensure your dining experience exceeds your expectations. Highly recommended dining in this wonderful place for any meal.
