The restaurant is the best thing about this place. The Good: -Restaurant and servers especially Carla and Andres. -Being celiac the 100% gluten free menu was a treat! It was nice to be able to look at the menu and order anything. Even my partner who isn't celiac said the food was very good. -Reception staff and housekeepers were friendly and did a good job cleaning. -The views -Clean pool The Bad: -Manager was not accommodating and rude. -Was sent a link via WhatsApp the next day to pay for a drink they forgot to charge me for the previous night. I've never experience this before. -If your not in your room by 10 you have someone watching over you like a criminal (some may feel this could be a good thing for safety but that wasn't our take on it) -Air conditioning in the room didn't work great, we asked for it to be fixed twice and there was almost no effort into looking into it. It never improved, and there is no blanket given on the bed, possibly suggesting this might not be entirely out of the norm? -The couch is anything but comfortable -The bed is average (we personally didn't sleep well on the bed) -The pool was smaller in person than it appeared in the photos, but was a decent little pool. However, there were only 6 lounge chairs which are typically taken at the beginning of the day so we ended up sitting on foldable plastic table chairs by the pool. Personal preference items we didn't like: -All areas were very dimly lite. It didn't feel very inviting. -Decor seemed outdated We didn't try the spa but heard good things about it.

Absolutely love this hotel. The concierge are amazing, we went into dominical for sushi and to walk around and we what’s app the front desk to send a taxi for us to return which I really appreciated. Over the moon helpful and the rooms AC is ice cold. We had massages and I swam in the pool every day as a cool break from our hiking adventures. Close to Nayauca Falls and a short drive to the coast where we enjoyed snorkeling. I definitely recommend. The hotel restaurant is delicious as well we breakfast and dinner there. They are fantastic I will definitely return the next time I’m in dominical.

A lovely little hotel, full of character, with comfortable, well equipped rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. The only downside was that where some of the meals were outstanding, others were heavily over-salted, making them inedible; an easy fix, I hope.

Nice rooms with aircon and fans; has a TV with two English news channels. Everything else is in Spanish. Small pool with about 8 lounge chairs. Average breakfast. Reasonably priced cocktails. Dinner was hit and miss sadly as the chef clearly liked his salt. The beef medallion with the white truffle sauce was exceptional. The beef with porchini mushrooms was gritty as were the potatoes which were also very salty and inedible. My husband ordered the baked fish which was so salty, that it was inedible. Instead of not charging for the dish, they took $4 off the cost. The avocado starter was just delicious and the flavour exceptional. Lots of birds and white faces monkeys all around which was lovely. The hotel is close to the road so there is a lot of noise from trucks going by. There are no restaurants within walking distance so if you don't have a car, you need to use taxi's. Staff are friendly so no complaints there .

To start with the positives, the pool area was small but perfectly clean and tidy, we saw humming birds and capuchin monkeys. BUT the location right next to highway 34 ment you heard the big American style trucks all night. The pool filter sounded like an asthmatic bagpipe and you are very close to an airfield so you hear light aircraft overhead. We asked for a quieter room but the chap on reception was so indifferent it was borderline rude. The bed was lovely and comfortable BUT our coffee machine leaked badly and flooded the floor when used, the hairdryer did not work and the smell of the drains was awful. Having visited Costa Rica four times now this is by far the worst hotel we've stayed in.

We have been in this area several times over the years and decided to stay here for just a few nights. During the rainy season, I am assuming things are a bit slower because we were one of 3 couples in the hotel. Not an issue...we had a private dinner and were the only ones in the great pool that overlooks the ocean The food at this place is 100% gluten-free and organic. So if you are wanting some excellent-tasting gluten-free food, this is the place for you.

We stayed here in June for 3 nights and were delighted with the place. It is a lovely beautiful hotel. Very comfortable and we also ate at the restaurant several times. The food was very good. We enjoyed the pool and seeing beautiful birds from the balcony. The service was excellent. We had laundry done and booked massages that were very good. Our server was great and very attentive and we are trying to remember his name. He was there often! We would highly recommend this small hotel if you are looking for a relaxing stay.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The best part is the staff! They are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to please customers. Each of them were equally outstanding. This is the best part of the hotel. The restaurant serves gluten free meals, which is an attraction to some people but we didn’t care for that. Breakfast choices were the same every day and there is a variety, but being gluten free was not appealing to us. There is a lovely pool but only 6 lounge chairs. This in inadequate for a hotel this size. From this location we visited Marino Ballena Beach and Ventanas Beach. Two amazing beaches! This hotel is in a remote area and you have to understand that you need to get a taxi to go to the beach, or elsewhere to dinner. Some taxi drivers charge double the rates of what others charge. We did a day trip to Dominical and did not enjoy that. It’s a “laid back town” and too laid back for our liking. If you are willing to either stay at the hotel all day, or take a taxi to the beach and to restaurants then this is a good place for you. It’s a great hotel with amazing staff. When we went to Marino Ballena we had a wonderful lunch in Uvita. Great people and great restaurants.

Beautiful hotel and restaurant! A perfect find for four weary travelers. The rooms were beautiful and the food was delicious at the restaurant. Everyone was happy, polite and engaging. A gorgeous infinity pool! A free welcome drink in the restaurant with a happy waiter made our experience wonderful! The grounds are lush and beautiful but are not right on the beach but that didn't matter to us. The view in the dinning room at breakfast was breathtaking!
