My husband and I have not experienced staying with the Cuna del Angel; however, I can only imagine that it is heavenly. We have been eating at this quaint little establishment in the jungle and enjoying their spa options over the last almost 6 years. The food (in the restaurant called La Palapa) is superb and has never waivered from... More

The service at La Palapas in the Cuna Hotel is the very best service I've received in Costa Rica, and some of the best I've ever experienced. Very kind, very helpful, glasses were always filled, chairs were always pulled out, plates and silverware were quickly taken away and replaced. Wine selection was great and the menu is very extensive. Disappointed... More

Be prepared for the outdoor seating which at times can be very warm as there are few fans to circulate the air. Also, the lighting is poor, but the waiter will bring reading lights that snap onto your menu so you can read about all the wonderfulmfood they serve. The wide variety of food from local dishes (cerviches to curry)... More

This is the restaurant at the Cuna Del Angel hotel. Their menu is online. It's a good nice restaurant with typical upscale restaurant menu items.

I live in Dominical and have lunch here often. I like it. Where else can you get escargot in Dominical? Service is great.

We found the restaurant through Trip Advisor. The restaurant is finely decorated with beautiful jungle views. We watched monkeys and toucans move through the trees while enjoying our margaritas and appetizers. The service was excellent in the beginning, but was a little slow once the restaurant became busy. Gourmet food in Costa Rica can be pricey, so we were surprised... More

We were staying in Quepos and decided to go for a drive and try a new restaurant. The Hotel Cuna del Angel and Las Palapa Restaurant is about a 40 minute drive from Quepos and the road was almost entirely paved. We went for lunch and found the place delightful. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. I... More

I've been in this restaurant a few times now, and I'll probably will go there again, because I like the beautiful details of the hotel and the restaurant, it's something nice to show to my customers. But they have to change one thing....the qualty of the pastas. In general the starters are nice, the main dishes also, and the creme... More

This is by far the best restaurant in the entire Dominical area. The food is incredible. The service is top notch. The owners are onsite with their small hotel. If the owner's recommend something just eat it. This restaurant is as good as any 5 star place in the States except that the price is Costa Rican. The best food... More
