Small (7-10? casitas type accommodations), intimate family run casa. Great experience, wonderful family, amazing food (some of the best we had). Includes breakfast. We pre-arranged dinner, which we highly recommend! They went out of their way to make our trip pleasant and easy, even helping us drop-off of our rental car. Very comfortable accommodations, good size, private entrance, separate bedroom & "living" room with kitchenette, and private patio. Wonderful patio and infinity pool with fantastic sunset views. Exceptionally clean and updated. High up in the hills, so 4-wheel drive recommended. Was a little warm for me without AC, but lots of fans. Excellent value.
Casa Del Toucan is the perfect family run hotel in a beautiful location. The views of the sunset from the pool or your private patio are incredible. Michael and Rosie put on a fantastic breakfast every day and also evening meals when prearranged. The breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, eggs any style and pancakes is fantastic. The evening meal when ordered is excellent French cooking. Francis is the perfect host and very helpful.
Francis and Rosie are great hosts. I work on my Spanglish every trip to Costa rica and here I got to work on my Franglish as well! Really awesome facility in the jungle with 5 star chef Michel preparing the best breakfasts and dinners that we have had in Costa Rica. Infinty pool at sunset with a glass of avacado leaf tea... I liked it so much that I just booked a return engagement.
This is such a paradise just outside of Dominical a couple km up a dirt road. We couldn't find a taxt to take us up because a 4x4 was needed so we contacted the host through the tripadvisor app to request a pickup in town and 1.5hrs later we were on this gorgeous property. We opted for the dinner. OMG we had no idea the place was run by a French family with a gourmet chef who made our best meal in Costa Rica. WoW. We got really excited about breakfast! Every single bite of everything was heavenly, from the homemade yogurt, the fresh baked bread, pancakes, fresh whipped cream with berries. It was as if we were in France. We'd return in a heartbeat.
A wonderful property with charming and attentive French hosts. Tucked away at the top of a narrow, steep and winding road is this gem of a property set in a magnificent jungle setting with spectacular views of sunsets, around a beautiful pool. The 3 or 4 casita buildings have comfortable and well appointed rooms in grounds that are immaculately maintained. But the piece de resistance is the magnificent candlelit dinner! Wonderful food cooked by a member of the family and served elegantly in the "hacienda" by the chef's charming wife. The breakfast was spectacular too - european elegance, hospitality and charm amid the luxuriant Costa Rican jungle replete with wildlife. Our favorite spot in all of Costa Rica - a gem!
