We loved Costa Paraiso. We stayed here at the start of a 10 day trip and it was a fabulous introduction to Dominical. The managers were very helpful, loaning us boogie boards, giving directions, moving our luggage from one room to the next, recommending beaches for skim boarding and recommending restaurants. We stayed in both Coconut Cove and Pelican Roost, they were both great and we especially appreciated having a kitchen. Pelican was a little more charming, with huge windows and a little more space. Dinner at Costa Paraiso was wonderful and the setting couldn't be more romantic, even with a 10 and 13 year old. :)
I would highly recommend Sushi Dominical (family owned and run and some of the best sushi I have eaten, loved the tuna and mango salad), Don Lulu and Nuacaya Falls, a trip to Marina Ballena.
The grocery on the way down on the main highway in Playa Herradura near Jaco has everything and the grocery in Uvita is also pretty good.
For the money, Costa Paraiso can't be beat!
