Very good hote with a nice porch, nice garden, nice track in the back of the garden, but poor information about this track. Good pool, but the lounger were too few and not very comfortable. Good restaurant at the hotel. We recommend this hotel!

We booked this place as our previous accomodation let us down. The staff were nice and friendly and were helpful in organising our onward transport. The pool area is stunning and we went straight there from reception. Plenty of sunny and shady spots for all. Our room was nice - no A/C but the ceiling fan worked fine. We enjoyed... More

This wasn't my first choice in Dominical, but I had just had a bad experience at another 'establishment' up the road. All in all it was good value for money, my room was basic but clean and tidy, the pool was big enough to have your own space, I only ate once in the restaurant - it was tasty and... More

As expected for a hotel near the beach and out of the beach front line. Good restaurant according to prices. Room was well equipped, nice and clean. If you are looking for a budget vacation this is a good choice. Best of all you are near of many activities in Uvita, Dominical, Manuel Antonio

The room is not so big but very nice. There is a patio to every room. The pool was good. The garden nice and there was many birds in the area. The hotel is about 15 minuts walk outside the village. Dont forget our flashlight if you want to valk in the evening.

Our room had a king size bed and a one person bed. Clean (we had some pets but the staff handeled it fast) and with airco and tv. Breakfast is lovely and with great variety. The pool is outstanding but please people: get a shower before you enter the pool! Staff should be more strict about that. To town you... More

I´ve been here for 1 week and I have to say that I´m amazed of this property, it´s just beautiful. The only thing is, that we had to take a taxi to get back to the hotel because it´s a lonely road and so we weren´t that independent...like Dominical is known to be a bit more dangerous than other places...

The hotel employees are lovely and as soon as we arrived we were on first names terms with them. Our freshly renovated villa was spacious and well maintained; it had lovely hand drawn designs on the walls added to the feel of the natural habitat outside. The gardens are wonderfully landscaped...flowering shrubs planted outside the restaurant to attract the beautiful... More
