“Villas by the Waterfall, a must stay place in Costa Rica”
Reviewed January 19, 2008

My wife and I just got back from a wonderful honeymoon, or 'Luna de Miel' as they say in Costa Rica. By far, our favorite experience was the 6 days we spent at Cascadas Farallas just up the road from Dominical. The hotel just opened in Dec 2007, so we were one of the first guests. Franco and Fateh are the married couple who own and run the place. They are super cool people who share tons of knowledge about the local adventures and restaurants you should explore. The villas are highlighted with Balinese decor and the artisan stone work shows the love the couple invested in their property. The rooms are very comfortable with much nicer facilities than other hotels in the area. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back.

If you're looking for a relaxing high-end experience, enjoying the sound of waterfalls cascading outside your villa and close proximity to horseback riding, nice restaurants and beautiful beaches - Cascadas Farallas is a must stay on your next trip to Costa Rica.

  • Liked — high-end service, comfort of rooms & beauty of surroundings
  • Disliked — hard to find, but they are adding better signage
  • Stayed January 2008, traveled as a couple
