Arriving in Dominical on the bus we tried a small dingy place first almost hostel like for $20 a night that said it had hot water, no such thing existed, after 2 hot nights and lumpy beds we wandered down the street and found Rio Lindo the grounds are soo pretty and kept up with pet iguanas that hang out...

This place was a little worn but very charming. Staff was awesome and friendly. The pool was in ground mineral water - the purest around. Right after high season so priced excellent. They do not take credit cards.

This "resort" has 2 good features: - It has a nice inground pool - It's located right in the village of Dominical and relatively close to the beach Unfortunately, this hotel is maintained in a way that is sloppy beyond belief and managed quite loosely: - Landscaping is bleeehhh... - Rooms are reasonably clean but ugly - my bathroom was...

The bar next door is super noisey, which made it very difficult to sleep. The room I was issued was terrible. The bathroom didn't have any light bulb; their remedy was to offer us a flashlight instead of simply replacing the light bulb (which they had tons of!) The staff was not friendly and the breakfast they offered was a... More

There were tons of mosquitoes comming into our room we had to put our towels in the windows to stop them. The instalations are ugly and bad maintenance: the bathroom was dirty, but the worse was the service: the people is unfriendly, the breakfast was too few that we had to look for more food in another place. We asked... More

No frills, basic but clean enough rooms. Great location near beach river and center of town. Has a nice pool. Not the friendliest owner. Loud bar scene some nights right across the pool from the rooms. Pool table was a plus. Overall a good choice for Dominical on a budget.

Stayed here because everything else was full and we arrived into town a bit late. We were exhausted and did not want to look anymore. We ended up staying 2 nights. The rooms were basic but clean although a bit musty smellling. The bartenders and staff were not so attentive, especially after you check in and pay. We had to... More

If you want ac in costa rica your options are limited. If you'd like to add cable tv your even more limited. If you'd like to have a pool and still be close to the action you should expect to either pay a fortune,,, or you could simply plan to stay at the Rio Lindo and make sure your expectations... More

I stayed at Rio Lindo because most other places were full, and while I wouldn't stay for an extended period of time, I discovered some hidden gems and some great people there. Kathy and Brian are friendly, down to earth, good people. The bartenders were great. The views of the river are awesome and sunsets are killer. The property is... More
