I recently moved to Costa Rica & this was one of the first places I stayed. The owner Jo could not have made us feel more welcome. The room was clean and comfortable & the bed was amazing with nice linens. The hotel feels private yet the beaches and shops are just minutes away on foot. Since then we have... More

This is truly a special place with a beautiful setting, inviting pool with a refreshing river breeze. We loved relaxing in the hammock outside our room and then a lively conversation at the bar! The smoked ribs were delicious and the bartender friendly, efficient and helped us with a wonderful waterfall trip. The new owners were in the process of... More

A title like this seems horrible, but I will explain, just mentioning a few simple pros and cons. For all of you using TripAdvisor to decide if you agree or not. Pros: - beautiful view on the river, - nice swimming pool. Cons: - owner drunk at the bar; - bartender walking around not hearing anything, like in another world;... More

I only stayed here for one night and then moved to another hotel, but I keep coming back here over and over and over again for the barbecue and the pizza and the pool view. Also they have a great billiards table and there are generally cool people hanging out here.

Let me say, first of all, that my husband and I stayed at Rio Lindo several years ago, and we were not impressed. This visit last month, I decided to go back and stay after knowing new owner/management has taken place. I am so glad that I did, because the room was very clean and I could tell that Jo... More

A friend and I stayed at Rio Lindo two nights this week while visiting Dominical. The new owner is doing a marvelous job bringing this place back to it's best!! The new owner has only had the hotel for two months and has done an amazing job of remodeling, cleaning up and making it what it should be. The work... More

Went in to the pizza restauant at 7pm. Rude waitress eventually came and took our order. She didn't seem to know what they had available. 45 minutes later we still hadn't had the drinks we ordered. Then they came and told us they had run out of pizza. A pizza restaurant at 8pm with no pizza. Probably the worst restaurant... More

Over the years it had been allowed to get run down....but Jo is making a huge difference. Our room was very clean and very comfortable!! The king sized bed in the suite was... More

Very nice people who run the place, but the facilities require more care also adding a cafeteria inside would be great/ Muy buena gente que dirige el lugar, pero las instalaciones requieren más cuidado, además añadir una cafetería en el interior estaria genial.
