Stayed in February and liked everything about it. No complaints. Close to great surf and the town which has a great atmosphere and food.Hotel Domilocos has a nice staff and owner that keeps the hotel in great shape. Good rates too

My partner, 2 boys (7 and 9) and I stayed at Domilocos for 3 nights while surfing with Dylan Park and his fab team. We had a very large main room with a small kitchen area, large wall-secured (and locked!) TV and blissful AC. There was a double bed and a single bed in this room. Leatherette couch that had...

We had reservations for 1 week and left after only 2 nights! We have stayed there previous years so knew what to expect but it got so worst and the owner just doesn't care anymore and it shows. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else!!!

The hotel needs a significant cleaning and update. The rooms are small which is fine but mattresses are uncomfortable and need replacing. Our room had dirty walls, dirty light fixtures, and not totally clean bathroom. The best part is the location and very good wifi. Otherwise you can get better for same money nearby.

Overall, Domilocos is an ok place to stay and not a bad deal. However, there were two problems with my stay: first, there is a slight smell (could be from the sewage system) in the bathroom and second, the building appears to be amplifying sound from within the courtyard. I am not a light sleeper at all, but got woken... More

We stayed here after reading all the reviews, but it was so disgusting. They had a sewer leak oustside and it stunk all night. They woke us up early trying to fix it. I got bed bugs from the bed, and the food was disgusting. Additionally, the service was not great. Glad to hear this hotel is for sale I... More

This was the best hotel for the money that I stayed at. I had been traveling through Costa Rica for over two months and this hotel was by far the best value. The Dutch man at the desk helped me with any questions and there was a free breakfast. It was modest but there was more for the asking. It... More

The hotel is for sale & the restaurant is already closed - I guess the best times are over. In our room was a moldy smell, the bed wasn't comfortable and the area was messy. The owner is a nice person but you can feel that she said already goodbye to the Domilocos.

Domilocos has seen better days, but it is still a good option (the wearoff is normal for a beach hotel). The location puts it walking distance from everything in Domincal, but you are not in the middle of the noise and party. The hotel used to have an excellent restaurant years ago, but sadly it is not functional anymore (a... More
