Loved location. Staff was accommodating. Room was clean. Great access to fresh smoothies anytime. It is very deceiving from the outside. Didn't look like much, but ended up being very happy there. I plan to go back very soon.

I did not stay here, only waited 6 hours for transportation that never arrived. But, and this is important, the gentleman managing the desk went out of his way to help me resolve my dilemma. Which to me means he is extremely conscious of his clients well being. If I am ever back in Dominical, I will stay at Arena... More

We stayed at the Arena y Sol hostel last night, and left before our second night. The sheets were disgusting in the room, the shower ran cold water at a low enough pressure it would barely rinse soap off. The worst part of the experience was the insane number of mosquitoes in the room at night! We did not leave... More

The pool was dry / empty and the... More

The reality turned out to be quite disappointing. My room was a tiny space, barely larger than the bed in it. It had a small tv and a very... More

I planned to stay here for a night or two and ended up staying for a week. It's right on the "main drag" across from the bus stop so it's very convenient for day trips. There is internet service (6 or 7) computers and free wireless and air conditioning/TV/Phone in the rooms(local calls were free...my phone was broken, but I... More
