Great location within a 2 minute walk from the ocean. Very well kept 24 hour swimming pool that wasn't over chlorinated. Sol, at the reception, was incredibly helpful and friendly!

Clean. Convenient. Nice Place for Price.
The lady who checked us in was jovial and made the process hassle free. She escorted us to our room, which was a nice touch. The reviews mentioned to stay away from the standard rooms, so we did. Our room was clean, comfortable and basic — not too small; beds were comfortable and squeak free. Pool setting is nice for a night swim. On-site restaurant has good food, nice setting. Complimentary breakfast has a wonderful spread. Hotel is basically in the beach and in the center of Dominical. No need for a car because everything is in walk in walking distance. Only complaint: they had water issues — sometimes no water came from the shower or taps. This was a temporary issue we unfortunately had to experience — ask for extra towels.

The grounds was nice. The vegetation was beautiful. The staff was nice. I did not like the room. Very small. No fridge in the room. Lost water twice. Food was good.

Very poor service and cleanliness
Nice grounds and pool. Dominical beach is right next door but quite dirty due to the amount of litter left by people camping. However the room was very small and had not been cleaned properly. Our room was not changed and clean towels not given for 3 days until we asked. Apparently we were not given the door sign required to request cleaning - after we complained and our room finally cleaned we were still not given the door sign and had to request it. A polyester mix single sheet used on double bed as cover. Shower has wires exposed and have an electric shock when touched. Terrible water pressure, and the water cut out for a short while during our stay. Staff very unfriendly and unhelpful - at odds with rest of Costa Rica who go out of their way to help. The reception staff do not seem to know any local info about transport or tour options and their is attitude is as if they are doing you a huge favour in bothering to respond to any questions. Breakfast very small portions. If you are sat too near the bathrooms there is an unpleasant smell of drains.
