Great spot, but didn't realize it is right on the highway. Loud with trucks using their jake breaks all night long. No hot water. Nice pool. Close to everything, bit the noise is a deal breaker. Owner GREAT to accommodate.

Owner Jo was super friendly and welcoming of this great little hotel and pool. Rooms were being upgraded and looked awesome. Right on the river where you can see all sorts of birds and wildlife, walking distance to beach and including a great restaurant and bar with yummy specials like slow cooked ribs and sloppy jos.

I have a friend who relocated to the Dominical area a few years ago and I've made the area an annual trip. I stay about a week to ten days and that's a little too long to stretch friend hospitality so I need a base of operations. I had stayed at the Rio Lindo in the past and thought it...

I recently moved to Costa Rica & this was one of the first places I stayed. The owner Jo could not have made us feel more welcome. The room was clean and comfortable & the bed was amazing with nice linens. The hotel feels private yet the beaches and shops are just minutes away on foot. Since then we have...

This is truly a special place with a beautiful setting, inviting pool with a refreshing river breeze. We loved relaxing in the hammock outside our room and then a lively conversation at the bar! The smoked ribs were delicious and the bartender friendly, efficient and helped us with a wonderful waterfall trip. The new owners were in the process of...

I only stayed here for one night and then moved to another hotel, but I keep coming back here over and over and over again for the barbecue and the pizza and the pool view. Also they have a great billiards table and there are generally cool people hanging out here.

Let me say, first of all, that my husband and I stayed at Rio Lindo several years ago, and we were not impressed. This visit last month, I decided to go back and stay after knowing new owner/management has taken place. I am so glad that I did, because the room was very clean and I could tell that Jo...

A friend and I stayed at Rio Lindo two nights this week while visiting Dominical. The new owner is doing a marvelous job bringing this place back to it's best!!
