We arrived at Hotel Cuna del Angel after an overnight stay in a remote community and felt as if we had fallen into the lap of luxury. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with abundant fresh linens. On the downside, the unshaded overhead fluorescent bulb in the bedroom was extremely annoying and the many, many stairs that stood between our room and the hotel lobby / restaurant / swimming pool made us think twice about taking advantage of several of the hotel's amenities. In spite of these inconveniences, I would recommend Hotel Cuna del Angel - but you might want to ask for a room closer to the centre of the action.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the restaurant or be prepared to climb dozens of stairs

I just returned from 5 amazing days in beautiful Dominical, Costa Rica. I was in the area for a wedding and a group of about 8 of us all stayed at Cuna del Angel. It was just wonderful! The rooms are not what you find in the states but have the amenities you need in a hotel (mini fridge, hairdryer, safe, coffee maker, ect) Our room was whats called a "deluxe" it was on the bottom floor located right in front of the pool, which we all used everyday.
Something that isn't mentioned much in reviews but needs to be addressed, THIS IS A GREEN HOTEL, completely eco-friendly! Including the 100% organic/gluten free restaurant that serves your breakfast. On our last night we decided that was the spot for dinner, and it was the best meal I had the entire time we were there. Bernardo was so nice and friendly and the food was to die for!!!
My only complaint is our bathroom was a little dingy, the tub/shower was in need of a redo. Whats the point of having a huge tub if there's no way you would ever lay down in it?

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are located in front of the pool with the jungle behind you! You get the best of both worlds.

Thank you very much for your comments, we feel very happy that you and your friends from the group of the wedding liked the hotel. This hotel and the área of Dominical known as Bahía Ballena, are both perfect to organize small weddings. As you say, yes , we are a 100% eco hotel, we have 5 leafs of the CST (Certification of Sustainable Tourism) program, that is the highest achievment, we feel very proud withthis. Also our restaurant is 100% gluten free and uses organic products. Breakfast is included in the rate.
So glad that you liked our food and service, I will make sure to let know Bernardo your nice comments about him.
We hope you can come and visit us again.

If you like nature, this is the place. Full immersion in a rainy forest with lots of nature sound near the beach. You need a car to go to the beach, but when you are back to the hotel you stay very quiet and comfortable. 49 steps form the lowest rooms to the lobby so be prepared. ;)

Room Tip: Room Y (they have letters not numbers) is the best for rainy forest surround.

Thank you very much for taking the time in writing this review , thank you for the nice comments, as you say , we are very close to the beach, from 5 to 10 minutes by car, and you can choose from 15 different beaches. The hotel is surrounded by rain forest, full of animals, birds etc.
We hope you can visit us again soon.

So let me say that Cuna del Angel its a Small Hotel, but it had all that i need from a Hotel, has a big pool, not too deep so everyone can enjoy it, This hotel its not suitable for kids, but if you have kids you can take them as long as you supervice them.

I stayed at the Deluxe Room, its big, nothing fancy but its confortable, also it has a small balcony with a jungle/ocean view.

What i liked the most was the food, the dishes that i had were delicious, the only downside its the price, ranging from about $12-$40, a simple dinner for 2 can end up costing about $50 or more, I dont focus on price but on the quality, i find it well worth the price.

We work hard on costumer service.

I have travelled to Costa Rica for the past 14 years and have now been a resident for the past 2 years. My Cosa Rican wife and I travel all over Costa Rica regularly and this was our fist stay at Cuna Angel. We have a lot to compare it to and we were delighted by our experience here.

We had the good fortune of dining with Tom the owner along with Eduardo his manager who we pumped with questions about the area as well as the history of the hotel. I might add, that the meal lived up to this hotel's reputation as one of the best places to dine in Costa Rica. They take food selection, preparation and serving very seriously.

The hotel setting is very peaceful and soothing. The lobby and dining room, from where you can easily gaze out to the ocean, are meticulously constructed and decorated with the incorporation of native architecture, symbols, colours and texture. This is all mixed with an angel theme throughout the hotel which we found delightful. Our room was also uniquely decorated with all the modern amenities. The well groomed staff were wonderful and attentive. They seemed to know what we needed before we did and were always at the ready to serve with good cheer.

We travelled about "the neighbourhood" and understood why Tom had picked such a lush location. As a professional photographer, I got plenty of shots of different birds… especially several toucans chatting it up in the late afternoon in full view near the pool where we leisurely sipped on delicious adult beverages.

We also visited the nearby beach which was clean, expansive and to our delight, almost deserted. No need for umbrellas as there are plenty of low hanging trees that line the beach close to the waters edge. Plenty of parking space in the shade as well. We barely scratched the surface of the many exotic activities listed on the site. Click on "Activities". Amazing.

We plan a return trip in August when the whales are in high numbers right off shore. Tom told us that it is not unusual to see dolphins "holding up" the baby whales right after being born. There is much to see in this incredibly lush part of Costa Rica and Cuna Angel is ideally situated as a base to explore. It is also very home-like in it's carefully designed tranquillity. Definitely added to our short "favourites" list.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Light sleepers should choose a poolside room.
