This is a hidden gem but if you don't have a car or you're not travelling with a group, this hotel is out of the way. If you have a car or are adventurous enough to bus it to Dominical and then take a taxi (short drive about 5 minutes on a rocky road cost is about 1500 colones or $3US) you will not be disappointed by this hotel! It is clean, spacious, quiet, beautifully landscaped, staff is friendly and helpful, there's service around the pool, abundant wildlife but not a nuisance.... I could go on. The rooms are in "bungalows" scattered throughout the property - 4 rooms to a bungalow with easy (cemented) pathways connecting you to various areas around the 'resort'. I won't comment on the rooms as others have done so in detail. The restaurant has a full menu (a bit pricey -- e.g. $10 US for a burger -- but then you don't have to walk into town) and drinks. The staff is absolutely wonderful and don't worry if you don't speak Spanish because most speak proficient English. This hotel has a good mix of visitors from Canada, US, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Costa Rica etc. The pool is spacious and nicely landscaped and plenty of lounge chairs to go around. Free WiFi in all parts of the resort (including the pool). There's a bar at the pool so you can order there or the staff comes around so you can order from them (not just drinks but food as well). The Macaws usually make their entry in the afternoon and you can bird watch right from the side of the pool. There is a surf school located at the hotel (The Green Iguana - ask for Bob - he had me up and surfing within the first hour -- first time ever! He's a former pro from California) and Tour Operator. There's also a Spa for massage and other services: a very professional and highly qualified massage therapist -- contact me for details if need be. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The atmosphere is very inviting. This resort makes an effort to recycle and have labelled bins around the resort, especially to sort glass containers. It is situated along the Baru river and you can take a leisurely walk along the road to a beautiful little waterfall or head down into the river at low tide (b/c high tide you can't look for crocodiles). All in all, I found this hotel very relaxing and a great place to stay and explore the Dominical, Uvita and Ballena area in the Oso peninsula in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
