Very beautiful environment...

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff -- 5 star staff.
Cons: The chef at the restaurant.
Location: It is near the beach and near a variety of things to do in nature.
The hotel staff are excellent! The only downside was the restaurant. While the wait staff at the restaurant were again excellent, the preparation of the food was 2 stars. Food was over-cooked, over-salted, and generally not close to the quality of the hotel. I definitely recommend the hotel, but I would dine at a different location.

Great family vacation

Resort is not that close to the beach. We walked but it was good 25 minutes and very hot. However resort had fantastic pool. Nice playground, mini golf and tennis courts. Grounds are beautifully kept. Saw toucans from the pool. Lots of hummingbirds and small colourful song birds.

Lovely cabins in beautifully landscaped grounds.

Posted Mar 7, 2017
We loved our stay here. The rooms were comfortable and relaxing. We saw loads of beautiful birds flying around the gardens including scarlet tanagers and toucans. We watched humming birds whilst we had our breakfast. The pool area was relaxing and very well served by a delightful young lady. Reception staff were excellent especially Jose for whom nothing was too much trouble. You need a torch to walk into the village at night and sensible shoes!!

Good Hotel near Dominical

Posted Feb 28, 2017
Pros: Walking distance to Dominical was convenient.
Our initial room was close to the road and had a faint smell of sewage so requested, and received, a second room located at the back. Much better! You have to be careful of the sun bathing iguanas as you walk across the sidewalk to your room. The room itself was quite nice for a 3 star in a rustic setting. It was clean and spacious and had a front patio to sit. Wifi was weak but available. Breakfast was very satisfying with a mix of local flavour and traditional breakfast fare. The pool was well maintained too. Be careful when getting here though, GPS thinks you turn left, but you need to go into Dominical first on the right and go under the bridge.

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.
