This is an excellent hotel at a very reasonable rate. Dominical is a glorious beach. When I was there it was pretty empty, which suited me fine, though I gather there are high and low seasons. Still it's a beautiful, wide beach, undeveloped, peaceful place. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach. The rooms are basic (no TV)... More

This place is very basic... No bells and whistles at all. We chose to stay here for a night but then bailed out to another property after. The rooms are extremely basic but a decent size and clean. A decent value for the $50 we were charged but saw a painted sign in town adverting their $35 rate. I think... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Hotel Domilocos and don't really have any complaints about this place. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and it's kind of refreshing not to have a TV, phone, or radio in the room. After all, you are on vacation and who wants these distractions? They... More

$50 per night including breakfast. Our room was clean but bathroom always had a sewerage smell. Bed was a bit squeaky but pretty comfortable. It was definitely nice having aircon. Breakfast is either buffet or not depending on how many people are staying there. Service at breakfast on our first morning (not buffet) was terrible - we sat down before... More

Clean room and good A/C. Having been to Costa Rica over 30 times in the last 9 years I realize things are more relaxed than the US.This was my second time , I stayed there a few years ago before construction was complete. They have come a long way and continue to make improvements. I didn't appreciate the stupid dogs... More

I recently stayed 5 nights here as part of a surf camp trip and was very happy overall. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and spacious. The hotel is conveniently located only a few meters from the beach, and a short walk to the main street where the stores and restaurants are... More

I recognize a lot in the critics of other travelers. The front office is limited helpful, the reception smells of dog and you are waken by barking dogs in the morning. The rooms are spacious though very dark. The breakfast buffet is nice.

This room was clean, however there were two issues that are unacceptable. The bed was horrible! It made so much noise on every movement that sleep was impossible. And there are times when the smells of this place ( sewer ) are really bad. Cats and dogs making noise all night! It just was not a good experience for me.
