“Danger!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

I first came to know the owner Micheal five years previous to this incident. My first travels to Costa Rica were with my then ten year old daughter and we stayed at he and Vivians hotel for five years straight. On August 10th of 2011 He followed my 15 year old daughter to the beach one night and physically accosted her. Forcibly kissed her and forced himself on her while she was yelling, and telling him to stop. I shutter to think what would have happened had I not walked to the beach after her a mere 10 minutes later. I saw it with my own eyes. I filed police reports in Dominical and also a complaint with the Instituto Costarricense de turi, case number [--] if you care to check my story.

We spent a week here and had the best room n hospitality out of all of our Costa rica trip. Thanks to Mike the owner he hooked us up. Clean rooms and an awesome restraunt right there. The beach is only a couple meters away and a short walk into the main part of town. IF your in Dominical this is the spot to stay. Cheers

We spent a few nights in this hotel and we had a lovely time. It was close to the beach near Dominical and if you love surfing there is no better place to just take your board and walk a few meters to the beach.
The people in this hotel are wonderful, doing their utmost to make you feel at home.

We visited Costa Ric for 3 weeks. We arrived a day early from our reservation. Michael the owner was at the front desk and another staff member, when they smiled and greeted us. We knew this was going to be a great experience!

We asked them a million questions and were always will to take the time and give us the information.

The room and washroom were very clean. Our experience was fantastic.

Some people complained about a smell but living in the country and having a septic I didn't notice anything!

The restaurant was unbelievable! We ate here almost every day! The tapas very good!

I would always look forward to getting up in the morning for the breakfast! I just loved the "pancakes" the best!

Very close to the beach!

I am looking forward to our returning next year in January. Thanks for everything Micheal!!

See you and Vivianne next year!

We stayed at this hotel for a week at the tail end of a 2 month excursion around central America, so we have quite a few comparables in the same price range.

The owner, Michael was incredibly friendly and helpful and treated us like visiting family. The on site restaurant had two big pluses - one was it was a local gathering place where we met many travelers and locals who embraced us and made our trip far more interesting - and two was it was hands down the best restaurant in town (tapas).

The hotel is in great shape and in a great location, right across the road from the beach.

I would highly recommend this place for friendliness, location and most of all, best bang for your traveling buck.
