The location is really good, easy to get by and well located, close to Dominical but not in the principal street where there was a lot of people and noise.
The room was really cozy, really clean, more that want we expected.
Restaurant was delicious and the service was excellent,

Hi. ¡Qué lindo es su hotel! Tengo una pregunta. Is there any chance we could stay there as a family of 6? My husband and I have four children (ages 14,13,11 and 9) If not, is there a hotel you could recommend that would be able to accommodate us? If so, how do I note this on my reservations? Gracias.
We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.

Saludos... quiero ir al hotel con mi madre y mi bebé. Pero ninguna de las 2 sabe conducir, asi que iriamos en autobus. A que distancia esta la terminal de buses que llegan de San José hasta el hotel? Adicionalmente me gustarisa saber si el centro está cerca y si hay supermercados, farmacia, cajeros, etc!
Hola Yan, los buses pasan por la entrada principal, tendrías que caminar 1 kilómetro para llegar al hotel, pero la vista es linda al borde Del Río y no se hace larga, El Centro de dominical está a 1.8 del hotel, y se puede ir a pie. Hay muchas sodas, supermercados y restaurantes, pero no hay cajeros ni farmacias, para eso tendrías que ir a Uvita que está a 20 minutos en carro, así que tendrías que ir bien preparada y sin necesidad de ir a Uvita la podrías pasar muy bien !

Hola, reservé una Habitación Superior y me interesa saber si son privadas y silenciosas o se escuchan los sonidos de las habitaciones contiguas? Gracias!
Estimada Sofia. Las habitaciones en el hotel Villas Río Mar se encuentran distribuidas en 5 hectáreas de jardín tropical. Son bloques de 4 habitaciones todas con entrada independiente y una terraza que le ofrece un aspecto acogedor y privado. Esperamos haber contestado a su pregunta si tiene alguna otra consulta no dude en contactarnos.
