  • An amazing experience!

    "I have been coming to visit Dominical and the Ballena Coast region for 10 years now and have stayed in quite a few homes in the area. My family and I stayed at Casa Mar y Luna for two weeks on our previous trip and enjoyed every minute of it! The house is modern and comfortable, offering some of the most incredible ocean/whitewater and sunset views in the country! Although the home is just a minute off the highway , it feels very private and you can't see or hear any neighbors below, behind or to the sides of the home. The rooms are very comfortable (4th bedroom is smaller, but nice) and the Master Suite with private balcony (the views get better as you go up) was a perfect spot for my wife and I to take refuge, while the kids played in the pool below. Most of our time was spent in the spacious, tropical outdoor patio area, swimming in the incredible infinity pool, taking in the majestic ocean views and enjoying the daily visits of monkeys and toucans in the lush stretch of jungle that comes up to the side of the patio. Jose and his wife Cecilia are very accommodating and helpful. Many of the other luxury homes I have stayed at in the past are very difficult to access (sometimes dangerous), as they are located 10-15 minutes off the highway on steep, bumpy 4x4 roads It was such a pleasure to finally stay in a home that has such easy access to beaches, surf and amenities of Dominical, yet enjoying an elevated, birds eye ocean views, privacy and cooler breezes that come with being situated up on the mountain. We will certainly be back to this home in the future!"

  • Beyond Expectations

    "There hasn't been a review since 2015 so I though I better write one. Looking at the pictures for Olas Hermosa when searching for a vacation place in CR I was a little sceptical if the view and place would be as nice as described. After settling I can assure you the pictures don't do this justice. The reviews from previous guests are correct - it really is hard to leave the deck (I am writing this while looking out over the palm trees sipping on an Imperial.) The studio is wonderful - everything you need to have a low-cost vacation (eating at "home" is no problem) and we were more than comfortable with three of us, even with the 36C+ heat. The beach in front of us is Dominicalito and is best enjoyed for surfing and boogie boarding at high tide (low tide exposes quite a lot of rocks but makes for nice beach combing or running). We printed out the tide table and organized our day around the tides. Other guests indicated that they could walk the beach from Dominicalito to Dominical but, looking at the rocks to the north I am not so sure how nice that walk would be. It's an easy drive but we were happiest enjoying the calmer waters at Dominicalito. We have been told that this has been one of the driest seasons ever, likely due to El Nino and there is a bit of a water issue right now. Today, if you are looking for a waterfall, Poza Azul is pretty much dry (there is a pool of water but only a trickle coming down the rocks). Instead, drive up toward San Isidro and pay the US$8 p/p to walk into Nauyaca falls - which are exactly as advertised - gorgeous and refreshing. We spotted many Toucans along the walk. Hopefully the rainy season will help replenish the water that is feeding the rivers and water table in this area. As others have reported Dave is wonderful (Deb is away in CO) and has provided us with everything to make our stay wonderful (if something isn't quite right just ask and he will take care of it) I just spent an hour this morning with Dave out on the rock outcrop on Domincalito beach swapping stories and enjoying the views that run all the way up to Manuel Antonio. We have met him almost everyday around 5 pm (beer o'clock) to share stories while cooling off in the pool. For those on their way to Olas Hermosa - you will have a great time (don't pack much more than your swim suits). If I come back to the southern cost in CR I will most definitely book into Olas Hermosa."

  • Great Place! Definitely will be returning here next year!

    "Selva Escondida was the perfect place for our guys weekend. We've been coming to the area for many years and this is probably the best location we've stayed at. Fruit trees on the property, birds all day long. We even saw a wild pig when out running! The rooms are large and beds are comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and even had many spices that we used to cook the fresh fish we grilled on our last night. Annick answered any questions we had and everything, from checking into the property to our security deposit refund was very fast and easy. You definitely need 4 wheel drive to get to the driveway and it is remote - which was perfect for us but something to consider. Also make sure to head across the road to the Jolly Roger for THE BEST wings and burgers you've ever had, as well as an awesome view for sunset. Also check out Coco's for lunch, Por Que Non for breakfast and the night life at Patron, Rum Bar and Tortilla Flats in Dominical."

  • Great location to spend vacation

    "We were at Dominical for two weeks and really enjoyed our stayed. Amazing view with a nice breeze. We saw toucans from our balcony and monkeys all over the places. Nice beaches around, Playa Ballena it is really a must to see. Food is excellent everywhere we went. We took a drive to San Isidro and the trip was amazing. We also did the horseback riding tour in the jungle at the Ranch near by, a must to do."
