The Diuwak is a budget hotel near the beach in Dominical, Costa Rica. Not our usual kind of place, but for a budget hotel, we were very pleased. The room was extremely clean, hospitality was wonderful and the little restaurant had very good food where you are always greeted with a smile.

The room was small, pretty standard costa rica room. AC was good, Wifi didnt really work well i dont think it reached room 100%. Hot shower. Property is pretty nice. Breakfast included was ok. At 80-90$ its pretty expensive for what it is. I think at 60$ range it would be more reasonable because we stayed at 90$ hotel in...

Terrible time at hotel diuwak. We had booked 2 nights through trip advisor and ended up just leaving after the first night. The room was so small and the walls were so thin. You could hear everyone in full conversation, toilets flushing, etc. at night there was something that continued to drop onto the tin roof, our thoughts were coconuts....

Dominical is a funky little surf town with unpaved streets. I was delightfully surprised to find the Duiwak Hotel in the mist of hostels. The grounds are clean and nicely landscaped. The standard room was small, but more than adequate for two people, although the lighting was dim. Breakfast was included at the restaurant- a typical Tico style. Alexandrea, our...

We were there in the Green season so it was not very crowded at all, there were a few other guests but it allowed the staff to give us all the attention we needed all the time. The first room we were booked into had a non working air conditioner. We told the front desk and they ask for a...

This was not my choice but my allotted hotel with my surf/yoga package, so I had no reviews to gauge what I was going to get. However, It was a very nice surprise. The location is awesome, every thing you need to orientate your self around the small town. It sits just at the end of the main dirt road,...

Very clean with great accommodations and a buffet breakfast. Has a very nice pool and located very close to the beach which is filled with street vendors and restaurants. Beach has lifeguards which is nice because of the size of the waves. Also if you make a left very close to many different delicious restaurants
