Our confirmed reservation for early January 2014 (3 nights) was cancelled by this hotel without any reason or excuses. At least they could have arranged other options for us in this busy season as it is difficult to find a good alternative. Luckely we have found another hotel by now. I wouldn't trust your booking at this hotel.

We went back to the Villa for 10 days in May of 2013 after 5 wonderful days in Dec 2012. Our experience was once again wonderful. This time we ha a car and were able to explore more of he SW Costa Rican coast from Jaco to Ohochal and found it beautiful, quiet and extremely interesting. The Villa is still... More

The hotel is in the middle of a lush tropical forest, and in theory you need a 4x4 to get there. We drove our small car for those 2.5 km and had no problem whatsoever. The place is beautiful, the breakfast you are given is plentiful and really good, it's easy to see the stars at night, you relax to... More

once you'd have approached the hotel via a bush road (you better take a 4wd!) crossing a small river and driving steeply uphill for approx. 2 kms, you'll be rewarded with a small boutique hotel, which was built by swiss at "swiss standards", meaning that the hotel wouldn't only survive a nuke attack, but also the high-end appliances and furniture/decorations...

If you crave total relaxation, scenic location, intimacy, good meals and a friendly owner then I would highly recommend this hotel. NO KIDS --Great. It is not everyday you can see toucans outside your balcony and hear holler monkeys in the distance. Perched on the side of hill, 750 ft up from the main highway you will require a 4x4vehicle....

I agree with all the current reviews in that Villa Ambiente is a lovely small hotel with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. However, my partner and I must have caught the German lady owner on a bad day, because we really had a bad welcome the day we arrived. Perhaps if we stayed more than one night our opinion... More

My wife and I stayed at the Villa in the Master Suite on Dec 7,2012. It was so beautiful and the owner, Birgit, was so nice that we stayed another 4 nights. The Master Suite was spacious and the bathroom was a suite of it's own. The balcony overlooking the infinity pool and bay at Dominicalito was the best view... More

We stayed at Villa Ambiente at the end of October '12 and truly enjoyed ourselves! After driving from Santa Maria de Dota, over the 11,000' passes of the Trans American Highway, and down the road from San Isidro to Dominical, the last 3 km up the 4x4 road to arrive at the Villa was enough. But when we saw the... More

Staying for two nights at the villa Ambiente gave us the feeling to be in paradise. This wonderful hotel is located in the hills near Playa Dominicalito in Costa Rica. To reach the hotel it is a 2km drive uphill from the main road 34. A four wheel drive is recommendend. The hotel is managed by Birgit and Uwe, a... More
