The best place we have stayed in Costa Rica (after four trips). We liked the Dominical/Uvita area more than any other place in the country and this was the perfect place to stay. Donna and Daryl have created a perfect paradise within the sound of the waves. The views down the coast to the Osa Peninsula are spectacular.
We stayed in the upper of Las Rocas for 5 nights. On arrival, we found a basket with great coffee, Lizano salsa and chocolates, not to mention the milk and water in the refrigerator and the pantry stocked with condiments etc. From both the terrace/living room and the bedroom you can see the surf below and the beaches down the coast. The lodgings are luxurious, at a very moderate price.
Donna & Daryl are great hosts with working knowledge of the entire area--what each little beach is like, the latest on restaurants. The way they have arranged the property makes each unit feel like a private secluded villa. We could not tell when someone was in the lower unit. It felt like our own vacation home for as long as we were there.
