Our group of 8 (6 adults, 2 kids) stayed for a week at beautiful Villa Alegria. The location is absolutely ideal – just a couple of minutes off the main road with views and sounds of the ocean down the hill. The house is nicely laid out so that each couple plus my two daughters had lots of privacy in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The beds are incredibly comfortable, and the fans and A/C keep the rooms very cool.
The pool is large enough to have some fun in, and was wonderful to come home to after busy days. There are iguanas that are regular visitors, and lots of birds hanging out in the trees. It was our second visit to the Dominical area, and this time we took a kayak/SUP mangrove tour, waterfall rappelled, visited Manuel Antonio, and spent three days at Playa Ventanas.
We ate dinner at Jolly Roger’s, PorQueNo?, and Roca Verde, breakfast one day at Café Mono Congo, and lunch one day at Tortilla Flats. All of the restaurants were great. The rest of the time we cooked at the house. If you plan to prepare a lot of your own meals, be aware that there is no oven, only a small toaster oven (not effective for baked potatoes or roasted chicken), but there is a charcoal grill. The homeowner, Todd, is fantastic to work with during booking or if you have any questions that come up before or during your stay. We were very pleased with our rental choice!
