“Friendly, welcoming stay in Dominical”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We had a great stay at Costa Paraiso, traveling with friends who had stayed there 2 years ago and liked it enough to return! The Dolphin room was great - lots of space, nice kitchen, and very clean. The pool is a nice way too cool down, the rocking chairs on the front porch a great place to relax. The owners and staff are very friendly and the restaurant servers great food. The owner was very helpful when we were looking for some great craft beer we had tried while at the restaurant. Thanks again!

Costa Paraiso is a perfectly laid out small resort. It has nicely appointed large rooms with high ceilings and comfortable porches with great views. The entire staff is very friendly and attentive. A very refreshing pool with ocean views and most likely the best restaurant in Dominical make it hard to beat. I also give high marks to the roller coaster steep driveway leading down to the resort! :-)

Thanks very much for the review.

Your humour about our drive way (quite steep) into the hotel was greatly appreciated. Our version of adventure tourism, haha.

Hope to see you again sometime.

The bungalow style hotel has a very nice atmosphere and we were greeted with an incredible staff, buildings were well maintained, with beautiful gardens and sunset views.

My daughter forgot two teddy bears at the hotel room, which were promptly shipped to our home in the US ---- nice touch! Thank you!

Stayed for 4 nights in the Coconut Room, the last week in January. Since we were 2 couples traveling together, our friends stayed in the adjoining Monkey Room. What a wonderful experience we had. Our room was very spacious, had a full size refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave, and large bottled water on the counter. I was happy that the shower had plenty of warm/hot water without having the typical suicide shower system still found in some hotels. The room was kept impeccably clean by a smiling, friendly cleaning staff as were the gardens by a gardener who would stop to chat with my husband because of his fascination with his traveling guitar. Loved the breakfast (especially the French Toast) at their restaurant where we ate every morning. At night we dined at their upper level patio where the sight and sounds of crashing waves will not be forgotten. The hotel and restaurant staff made our stay all the more enjoyable. When in or around Dominical, consider yourself lucky to be able to vacation at Hotel Costa Paraiso.

Room Tip: Although I didn't see any of the other 3 rooms, I'm sure you can't go wrong with whateve...

Such a pleasure to dine at Por Que No… hard to fine a restaurant with fantastic views, great ambiance and delicious, healthy food. Not to mention the hospitality of Jo and Shelby to ensure your dining experience exceeds your expectations. Highly recommended dining in this wonderful place for any meal.

The reviews don't lie: the property is beautiful, the ocean views are breathtaking, the food is fantastic, and last but not least, Jo, Shelby, Selena, Sandra, Nicole, Myra and Gus are absolutely wonderful!

The location is great for activities, which the staff will help you to schedule. It's also absolutely perfect to just relax and take in the view. I stayed in the Monkey Loft, which was very nice, very clean and had everything I needed.

There is no way to put into words how wonderful Costa Paraiso is. You just have to go there and experience it yourself. I highly recommend it!!

My friend and I spent a lovely week at Costa Paraiso while on a surf vacation. This place is wonderful! We stayed in the Dolphin bungalow. It was spacious and clean with a full size fridge. The staff at Costa Paraiso and Por Que No? were wonderful. Jo, Shelby, Sandra, Selina, Nicole and every one else went above and beyond to make our trip special. We ate at Por Que No? many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the quality of the food and service was consistently excellent! It's very convenient to have such a great restaurant just a few steps from our room! The town of Dominical is only a short walk (mainly on the beach) away.
