Couldn't wait to go back so we did.

Posted Feb 20, 2017
We visited about two months ago in December. The opertunity to return presented itself so we booked the same hotel. We view it as quite a bargain. The staff are great, facility's well kept and the included breakfast tastey. We tried the dinners this trip and were impressed. I kind of felt stupid to not have ate dinner "at home" before. I think highly enough of this place to have invited friends with us this trip. The outside patios are a big plus for the rooms. It really increases the living space.

Great hotel, staff, and resturant.

Posted Aug 18, 2016
Nice clean hotel. Quite. The staff was very helpful and kind. We mentioned our bed being uncomfortable and they changed the mattress that day! The staff seem to be attentive to their guests. The hotel resturant was delicious. Across the street from the hotel is a cold stream running down from a waterfall. It is a great stop to cool off. The beach is located down the road from the hotel and is a great place to catch the sunset.

We loved staying at its peaceful hotel close to the town of Dominical, but just far enough away from the bustle.

Great little resort with fun perks

Posted Jun 1, 2016
My partner and I stayed 3 nights here. It was clean and comfortable. Esteban at the front desk upgraded our room, remembered our names, and was just generally very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the grounds were beautiful. Breakfasts were tasty. We played tennis, mini golf, and swam in the pool. I would stay here again.

Very nice place, great location

Posted Apr 25, 2016
Was a treat to stay so near to the beach at dominical (we surf) and its nightlife (be careful at the rum bar ;)) yet feel more part of the jungle experience. The hotel offers terrific bungalow style rooms and the food and staff are excellent, our server at the restaurant was very attentive - and cute - and at the front desk Jose is the man ✊

Beautiful facility and grounds, friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast buffet, quiet location but still convenient to town. We loved our stay!The staff went above and beyond to help us and make us comfortable. The pool was very clean and enjoyable. The flowering plants and animals right outside your door are a real treat.
