This is the perfect location to stay if you're around Dominical. It is quite, just a few minutes from Dominical beach. It has a swimming pool and a big garden, but the most special thing is Sabina, the owner. You would listen to her stories for hours ! And she has great advice for eating and chilling in Dominical. And...

We spent two nights at cabinas alma. We loved the breakfast, mainly the natural juices and the kindness of Sabina. Thanks so much. Unfortunately I didn't realize previously that the rooms have not air conditioner. At this time during March and April if you don't tolerate the high temperatures in Costa Rica is no recommended to stay in little rooms...

I cannot tell how much I loved this place and Sabina's welcome. We stayed only one night and I wish we could stay more. Sabina and her people managed to create a very special and beautiful universe like from a fairy tale - you know, little birds singing around the fruit trees, colorful frogs resting under rocks, lightning bugs flying...

We originally booked for just two nights, but Sabina, our host, was able to take us early and we stayed five nights. There were nine in our family. Five stayed in the Casita which has a full kitchen and the rest of us were in two rooms. Bring ear plugs only if you don't want to hear the tropical birds!...

This is THE spot to be! Sabina and David, her son, gave us a very warm and friendly welcome in their B&B. The property is at only 5min from Dominical and has an awesome garden and an heavenly saltwater swiming pool. The breakfast is almost entirely homemade with product from the property : fruits jams and cocoa spread, fresh juice,...

We were so happy that we decided to stay here rather than in Dominical. Just a no frills beautiful place. Sabina was a great host. Easy to talk to and very informative. The only thing is that we would have liked a little more options for breakfast, her fruit and jams were delicious but we got overloaded on fruit. I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The property is located on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It is 6 km north of the surfing town of Dominical, and 35 km south of Quepos.We are 3 km away from Hacienda Baru, a National Wildlife Refuge that offers a wide variety of rainforest tours & activities. Alma de Hatillo is just a 25-minute walk, or five minute drive, to a spectacular 10 km-long beach.We are located at the south end of the village of Hatillo. We are distinguished by a large red hibiscus hedge on the east side of the road through the village. There is a gas station 3 km south on the road to Dominical and several local places to eat.Being located on the edge of a Costa Rican village, we are able to offer our guests an authentic experience of rural life (including the sights and sounds of a small working farm across the road). We also have wilderness trails on the property as well as access to mangroves on a near-by beach. ... more   less
