I really love the accommodations! It's a bit rustic, in a good sense, with everything you need to be comfortable. The pool is nice, It's 100 meters from the beach, and a delicious buffet breakfast is included in a very reasonable price for the room. Plus, they gave me a 15% discount for paying with cash. BUT, I'm having dinner...

Never been to a hotel that is so poorly managed. I have been overcharged for one night, 110$ (big up guys you'll probably recognise me! It's never too late to give me my money back) and I have been chasing them for my money back ever since, it's been 4 months. They promised a money transfer two months ago, still...

This is the third time I stayed at the Diuwak, the first was 8 years ago, then last year and then again this year. I was booked there the first two times as part of a surf camp package. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is really the only thing that would make me want to stay here again. This...

Although there were a few pluses to this hotel, they were far outshadowed by the negatives. The part that was the most disconcerting, however, was that during my stay, I was never able to speak with a manager. He was always too busy, and let the poor receptionists attempt to address my concerns.... like no hot water, a broken refrigerator,...

My first experience with this hotel was getting in the shower and being electrocuted by a faulty shower head (double as a water heater). They gave us a new room, which had no hot water. The beds were super uncomfortable and the rooms were tiny. The Wifi, while technically existent was so slow as to be utterly useless. The pros:...

The only good point is the swimming pool ans to be near the beach. All the rest is wrong. We paid $ 540 for 4 nights at 3 personns. Highly priced for the price of the hotel room. For the same standard we usually paid $ 75 a night. Bathroom: stained mirror, regular water break due to a fault in...

Gardens and outlying areas are nicely located for a cool walk on the sidewalks. we had so much fun at the ``rancho`` (is this place next to the pool area where you can take your own drinks and stuff to cook at the grill over there. if you want you can also get service from the restaurant over there

This place looks great and appears to be welcoming. But with the exception of a delightful staff, the place is a fraud. Everything in the bad reviews is true. The breakfast is limited and not very good for a $100 bucks a night. The swimming pool was filthy and no umbrellas. The rooms are small. My AC leaked. It is...

The staff and grounds and courtesy shown us at this find sandwiched between the 2 little Unpaved roads that are the funky beach town of Dominical was just wonderful! Our experience was perfect from arriving before noon on a Friday, being encouraged to use the changing rooms/pool until a room could be readied for us, very clean classic Costa Rican...
