I have been there before but this was the first time I stayed at the hotel. The place is gorgeus and the food is excellent. The personnell attention is over expectations, starting with the check in up to the moment they put your baggage in the trunk of your car. Really a place to return!!!

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.

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

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
