We had one of the jungle rooms that have quaint furniture and a nice little deck that opens right to the jungle. The ceiling fan was much appreciated. Roomy bathroom, too. The infinity pool is lovely. The food in the very nicely appointed open air restaurant was outstanding, some of the best I have had in 3 trips to Costa... More

The one thing that has always disappointed me is that you research places to stay including reviews and the pics that get posted and think this will be a nice place to stay, then you get there and wonder where the place in the pics is..........................Not Cuna de Angel - their main picture is exactly how it looks in real...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Cuna del Angel during the Envision 2015 Festival. It was truly an amazing oasis! The staff at the front desk, the restaurant and the cleaning staff were very professional. The grounds were home to howler monkeys, toucans, lizards and other wildlife. The plants and trees were also very attractive. The swimming pool looks... More

This is not a 5 star hotel by American standard, but I have never stayed in a nicer one in Costa Rica. The facility is kept squeaky clean, the staff are patient and hard working, the restaurant is really good, and the pool is wonderful. Air conditioning and TV were a real treat. It was one of the best spots... More

We visited this hotel for 4 nights in January 2015. The hotel is located deserted 10 km south of the small beach town Dominical so a car is recommended for visiting the hotel. The hotel is placed on a small hill with a limited view to the Pacific Coast. Access to the ocean from the hotel is not possible but... More

We had 3 nights in late Jan at the end of our 2 week Costa Rica trip. The intent was to relax for a couple of days before returning to the European winter. We enjoyed 3 very nice dinners in the very atmospheric dining room - the ceviche was delicious and the steaks were acceptably rare. The pool is just... More

The hotel, restaurant, and pool are all beautiful, nicely maintained and quiet.. The service is very attentive and personalized.
