A fine experience, but a whirlwind as we only scheduled one night at this fine hotel. The staff was super friendly, rooms were very clean, although the bed was not good for sleep. We ate at the Palapa restaurant on site, and it was truly fabulous. My wife and I had ordered the lobster risotto and the osso bucco, oh... More

We stayed two nights at this boutique hotel and had a great time! The staff was so friendly and helpful, and our room was lovely with it's direct access to the pool in front! – actually some of the waiters in the restaurant was so service-minded that it almost became too much, because with small kids, you can't avoid to...

This is a stunning boutique hotel overlooking the ocean. The hotel features a gourmet 100% gluten-free (and aiming at completely organic) restaurant. The gluten-free restaurant and the toucan that greeted us on our balcony were extra-special treats. Excellent food. Excellent staff. We highly recommend! With special kudos to Rigo and Danny!! Thanks for the excellent service, guys!

Great hotel, spotless, German owner, so it's spotless, and has great attention to detail. The hotel has no beach access, the location is almost like a 'motel' by the highway, light sleepers might even hear some distance truck noise once in a while from the highway. It's a small facility, so there is not much to do apart from sleeping,... More

We had excellent service from the second we arrived at the hotel. It was late and they insisted on taking our bags to our rooms for us. They helped us find activities near Dominical and led us to good beaches. They were always kind, cleaned our rooms, and we were happy!
