If you crave total relaxation, scenic location, intimacy, good meals and a friendly owner then I would highly recommend this hotel. NO KIDS --Great. It is not everyday you can see toucans outside your balcony and hear holler monkeys in the distance. Perched on the side of hill, 750 ft up from the main highway you will require a 4x4vehicle....

I agree with all the current reviews in that Villa Ambiente is a lovely small hotel with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. However, my partner and I must have caught the German lady owner on a bad day, because we really had a bad welcome the day we arrived. Perhaps if we stayed more than one night our opinion...

My wife and I stayed at the Villa in the Master Suite on Dec 7,2012. It was so beautiful and the owner, Birgit, was so nice that we stayed another 4 nights. The Master Suite was spacious and the bathroom was a suite of it's own. The balcony overlooking the infinity pool and bay at Dominicalito was the best view...

We stayed at Villa Ambiente at the end of October '12 and truly enjoyed ourselves! After driving from Santa Maria de Dota, over the 11,000' passes of the Trans American Highway, and down the road from San Isidro to Dominical, the last 3 km up the 4x4 road to arrive at the Villa was enough. But when we saw the...

Staying for two nights at the villa Ambiente gave us the feeling to be in paradise. This wonderful hotel is located in the hills near Playa Dominicalito in Costa Rica. To reach the hotel it is a 2km drive uphill from the main road 34. A four wheel drive is recommendend. The hotel is managed by Birgit and Uwe, a...

Villa Ambiente, situated up a steep hill on the side of a mountain is well worth the drive to stay at. The View is spectacular. Clean and well kept san helpful staff.

Every thing with this hotel is EXCELLENT. Perfect view, perfect swimming pool, perfect room, and a very kind, and service mined german hotel owner. This hotel is laying on a hill, and you do need a 4x4 drive, or a good driver, for going up to this hotel. The climate is on this hill is very good. Because the wind...

This amazing and beautiful villa makes you feel like you are in the Mediterranean. The view is one of the best in the Dominical area.

I stumbled upon this Villa while researching Dominical and decided to add it to our 10 day roadtrip down the Pacific Coast. This was our 4th hotel of the trip and aside from Lapa Rios which is pretty much unbeatable, this was HEAVEN! There was nobody else there during our stay so we basically had our own luxury villa. We...
