“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The cabin was clean, the AC worked almost too well, and Flaca the dog was our coffee companion every morning. I loved the grounds, and the proximity to the beach. I had been begging for a tropical beach vacation for years and this fit the bill perfectly. Richard and Diana were the perfect hosts, and our stay couldn't have been any better. It was a dream location off the main tourist trails, right in the middle of some of the most beautiful jungle in the world. The locals, Ticos, we're kind and generous, and there was so much to do.

I am already plotting how we can come back, and bring our little girls with us next time. We are enchanted and bewitched by Coconut Grove, Dominical, and Costa Rica.

We stayed in the large house at Coconut Grove for a week, and it was absolutely wonderful. We wanted a fun Costa Rica experience away from too much tourist stuff, and that's what Coconut Grove was. The location was ideal- we felt like we were in a secluded jungle, but the beach was so close we could listen to the waves while laying on the hammock on the very large porch. We couldn't swim in that part of the ocean because of the rocks, but they were fun to climb on, and the almost empty beach was great for taking long walks, and there was a sparkling clean pool to jump into as well.

The owners were away, but let us know in advance that Ian would be taking care of things, and he was a super nice friendly guy.

Even though you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, there are lots of places to eat nearby with friendly owners, and a Wildlife Refuge nearby for hiking and ziplining.

We went in early May and it rained most nights, but the days were beautiful and sunny. The thunderstorms were actually great to watch and listen to from our porch.

The house was in great shape, very clean, and extremely reasonably priced. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: The big house is worth the extra money if you are staying there for more than a night or two. It fel...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. Richard and Diane are friendly and helpful hosts, willing to give advice on anything from directions to a nearby waterfall and the best place to get an inexpensive, yummy meal. Our room was clean, had great AC, and the grounds are beautiful, including the pool! As an added bonus, the hotel is right next to the beach, making for great sunset beach strolls. All in all a great hotel and I would totally stay here again and recommend to friends. Such a great value!

Spent two relaxing days in one of the small cottages, felt like home complete with a number of very friendly dogs. Diane & Richard are great hosts & very accommodating. Pool was just outside our cottage. Cottage vas very comfortable & clean, & had a comfortable porch area to relax. Signage on the highway was a little difficult to spot, but once we found it, it was worth it!! Just a nice spot to stop over & enjoy the Pacific side.

Room Tip: Location is just south of the town Playa Dominical.

My husband and I couldn't have been more delighted with coconut grove! We found this secluded paradise while walking along the beaches of Dominical. We stayed in both the family villa and small cottage and found both to be well appointed, clean and great value for money (especially compared with others in the area).

The hotel is set amongst exceptionally maintained lush grounds right on your own beach so you wake up to the morning calls of the surf and birds.

The walk into town is only 20min along the shore or $4 cab ride. Richard and Dianne couldn't do more for their guests from organising great transfer rates, activities or simply telling the staff at Roco Verde to take good care of you!

A previous guest made note of the dogs. Yes, there are a number of docile dogs which belong to the family however they are on a separate part of the property and never leave Richards side.

We couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. Whether you are a family who need cooking facilities or a couple looking for some romance, this hotel is for you.

Stayed in the big house for three days. It was neat and clean, kitchen well stocked with condiments and kitchen utensils. the porch in back had great seating, a table and hammock with a beautiful view of the ocean and beach. The pool was a few feet away.

Diane and Richard take great pride in their lodging. They are kind and compassionate people who rescue animals who would not have survived without them. The dogs coming to visit adds to the friendly atsmophere. They are not intrusive.

Looking around, you see lots of beautiful trees and flowers, iguanas and birds. Sunset is beautiful.

I look forward to my next visit and staying at the Coconut Grove again.
