Have reached out numerous times to try and get our deposit back from the hotel. Canceled our reservations on March 11 due to WHO declaring pandemic. Hotel acknowledged and asked for PayPal account so they could refund our deposit. March 19th asked again and were told they would send deposit next week. Asked again March 27th no reply. Still no reply after two more requests. Also asked for credit so we could return later this year, no reply. Has anyone else experienced this ?

My wife and I stayed in the toucan nest. When we were walking to the room the smell of sewage was very strong at the front door. It was there everyday more so in the Morning . The management seemed to not care. The room was nice but there was no where to set your bags except the floor also no chair to sit on. parking was difficult also as the parking lot was extremely small but I knew that going in. The Restaurant service was very very SLOW we waited 1/2 hour for our water and tea. I would recommend this place but be aware of what you are getting

We are so sorry to hear you didn’t love your stay. The odor issue is very unusual, but it has been solved. As for the long wait at the restaurant, we apologize— we are currently training new wait staff. Hope to see you again under more enjoyable circumstances in the future.

Beautiful place. Beautiful views. Delicious food and drink. Esp. the passion fruit tart! Beach practically to ourselves. Pool with hammock. Relaxed, low key atmosphere. Staff was fantastic. Great location. Just outside of Domenical, but felt private and secluded. Loved it.

We had the room with the best views and a giant king size bed. The room was spotless with a great walk-in-shower! The food was excellent, especially the red snapper sandwich! The property manager (Yoanna) met us our last morning and took us to breakfast and she was an absolute delightful person who cares so much about the quality of care at Costa .Pariso. It was always very quiet and tranquil!

There are great ocean views from the excellent cafe and lovely pool, especially at sunset. The staff was friendly and spoke English. Access to the beautiful beach is easy. The rooms are clean, well-equipped and comfortable, but don't offer great views. Well, the sturdy dining chairs in the room are not so comfortable, but it was nice to have a table and chairs. We felt very safe there. Nature lovers will enjoy the garden, iguanas and birdlife. You'll need a car to get to nearby beaches and towns, but just staying put at this hotel is relaxing. We enjoyed our stay there.

We are a family of 4 and found the accommodations simple yet perfectly comfortable and a great value given the absolutely stunning location--steps away from a stunning, secluded beach. Given the simplicity of the room, I just want to say that it was very well-equipped with everything we needed including a kitchenette. Hot water was sufficient, all electrical outlets and lightbulbs were in good working order, beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and courteous and helpful and although the hotel is old, I found that there were maintenance workers working on the property at all times keeping it clean and in good order. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend.

The place is very nice. Awesome views, the place naturally is amazing, the hotel is a little old but very cosy. The service is very very good, personal and very nice people. Overall recommended place, good cost-benefit place. Additionally really close to everything in Dominical and 10-15 min drive to Nauyaca waterfalls.

Best view and sounds of the Pacific. You hear the ocean everywhere, stunning sunsets and the stroll along the seemingly private Dominicalito Beach is wonderful. We stayed in Pelican and had plenty of room for our family of four. The kitchen is minimally equipped, but we managed to cook our meals there. The receptionist, Mauren, was always helpful with bookings or any other requests (especially since my Spanish is not so good).

Small cottage on the beach overlooking a rocky area where the waves crash. Great place to sip coffee. We stayed in toucan room which was behind the restaurant in the trees versus the other rooms that were in front of the parking. The water pressure was very light and we had issues one night without water but it was resolved in the morning. Simple rooms, affordable pricing, with great location if that's what you're looking for.

We appreciate your comment, we had a broken tube at night, luckily it was solved in the next morning. Toucan is the most private room and without a doubt some beautiful views, we hope you return and that you have enjoyed your stay. Thanks Pura Vida!!!!

South of Dominical on Playa Dominicalito is a remarkable little hotel called Costa Paraiso. At the bottom of a steep lane right on the oceanfront is a tranquil little collection of old Costa Rican buildings. With fully equipped tropical rooms,beautiful grounds and a great restaurant (Por Que No) it's quite a complex. Spend your days exploring the beach and watching the dramatic tidal waves. Nature at your doorstep and a heavenly little hotel to enjoy. Lucky you. Costa Paraiso comes through!!
