We stayed in the hotel "coconut" room. Perfect for us. A little hard to figure out the shower temperatures. Lovely beds. Great night's sleep. Food terrific too! Fantastic views. After a great meal, take a walk on the beautiful Playa Dominicalito.

This tranquil, modestly luxurious local is a perfect stop off for any traveler on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. I have been stopping by CP for the last 12 years and it has always been just what the doctor ordered. Beautifully landscaped, with the Pacific offering up great sounds and visuals out the front door. The newer kitchen offers... More

I stayed in the Toucan Nest with my girlfriend in July 2016 and we had made our plans relatively late for the trip so Costa Paraiso was one of the only options we had available after searching online... and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The day after booking we already had received correspondence from Andrea regarding the reservation... More

Beautiful,amazing,breathtaking and super romantic! Staff had said we could stay long and invited us to "take advantage" of the getaway. We toyed with the idea and finally convinced ourselves that we deserved a second night; however when we went to confirm, they said it was already reserved. Sad. As we had been motivated to stay, and then denied the opportunity.... More

I loved that it was small and in a perfect location. It is in front of the Dominicalito beach, which is way less busy and more calm waters compared to Dominicalito beach.

Have had dinner at restaurant here (Por que No) but first time staying. Great accommodation, simple, easy, small, quiet, on the beach with a great restaurant and beach bar! What else do you need??? If I don't buy a house first, this will be my "go back to" spot forever.

“All the rooms are acceptable, Tucan's Nest is a little more special, book early as there are not a lot of rooms 5 or 6 at most. Be sure to eat at least one dinner at Por Que No¿”

“When we first arrived at our room, it had not been cleaned. We had to wait for them to remove a bed and clean up after the others "mess". It was a bit e harassing and uncomfortable to walk into. They got things cleaned up, though you could tell it was not "housekeeping" standards. We made the most of our time and got to open the bar. What a beautiful setting! Later, they informed that our room was indeed ready! The view was breathtaking,the sound of waves incredible, the food remarkable. ”
