I agree with Berlin1057. I stayed for one night and couldn't wait to go somewhere else. Yes, the hotel is in a quiet spot but there is no where to relax in the hotel - no hammock, no chairs, nothing. So if you are not in your sad little room, there is no where else to go. If I'm on...

Nice hotel at un dead-end street in Dominical. No noise of traffic!1 minuut of the beautiful beach. The rooms are basic with AC, clean and comfortable.They have a very good Italiaan restaurant, where also the locals like to eat and drink a good bottle of wine. Ask for the special wines!!! The hotel and restaurant are both good value for...

Travelguide sat> Best place to be in Dominical. Y would say this is a poor testimonial for Dominical if this should be the best. Rooms only have window to the floor and the stairs. So you always need to have the curtains closed because everybody who passes the room can look in. So room are very dark. Some maintenance missing....

Just returned from a solo surfing trip. I booked my trip through the Jungle Jive Surf Camp, which operates out of Hotel Domilicos. The owners of the surf camp were great, unfortunately they are moving away from Costa Rica soon. I plan on returning with my family within the year however, because Michael and his staff went so much out...

I stayed at Hotel Domilocos twice. It was the offseason so I am glad I was able to book by just walking up. It is by far the best deal in Dominical, and was my favorite place in Costa Rica. The rooms are new, clean and tastefully decorated. By far the best deal in town at only $40. If you...

I have been staying at Hotel Domilocos the last three nights, and I had a blast. I heard a lot of people talking about the place, specially about the restaurant, but I had never been there before.

Domilocos is by far the best option one has while in the Dominical area. Not only is the staff the friendliest there is but the food in Confusione is by a large margin, the best in the area. Easily. The room rates are in my humble opinion too low for what you get. Nice double/queen bamboo beds with air conditioning....
