Beautiful,amazing,breathtaking and super romantic! Staff had said we could stay long and invited us to "take advantage" of the getaway. We toyed with the idea and finally convinced ourselves that we deserved a second night; however when we went to confirm, they said it was already reserved. Sad. As we had been motivated to stay, and then denied the opportunity.... More

We couldn't stay here this time; (. There weren't sufficient rooms. However the next best thing was to eat our meals there. The food is just beautiful and the service is excellent. Good luck and enjoy Costa Rica

I loved that it was small and in a perfect location. It is in front of the Dominicalito beach, which is way less busy and more calm waters compared to Dominicalito beach. We stayed in the Dolphin and Pelican rooms, both with kitchen, ac, fans. Their restaurant smelled delicious, but since I was traveling with 7 more people and on... More

Have had dinner at restaurant here (Por que No) but first time staying. Great accommodation, simple, easy, small, quiet, on the beach with a great restaurant and beach bar! What else do you need??? If I don't buy a house first, this will be my "go back to" spot forever.

I had the pleasure of staying in the monkey room for 3 nights. The room was large, had all the conveniences I could have asked for and was quiet and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful, and the crashing waves upon the rocks is so relaxing. I enjoyed the pool, and there were several iguana roaming about. Their outdoor bar is... More

Really have no complaints - room was comfortable, lovely property, incredibly friendly check-in - if I were in the area again, I would return. Since my review has to be longer, a couple of things to know - steep drive into the property and only a couple of food options before 5 (I think no food options from 1-3)

It is so nice to know you do not have complaints about your stay in the Paradise. We really appreciate the comments, advices and suggestions from our guests. You are right, the restaurant is closed between 1 30 pm till 5 30pm but "El Almendro" is open at 3 00 pm where the customers could enjoy some appetizers and drinks.... More

This property is rustic and charming. The Monkey room was comfortable for our family of four with comfortable beds. The restaurant was very good. They had excellent smoothies made from fresh tropical fruits. The entire staff was very helpful and friendly.
