We stayed at Domilocos for 5 nights during envision festival. Vivian the owner was so amazing to our group! She gave us a ride to the festival and even drove us to Manuel Antonio after our stay was over! It's a minute walk right to the beach, the place itself was very clean and freshly painted. I would definitely stay... More

Not good value for money. No functioning pool, no hot water, no breakfast and no cleaning of our room. This place has seen better days for sure. But it's close to the beach and the café next door serves av good breakfast.

The room was very clean. Free wifi was one of the only perks. The A/C was temperamental and the beds were uncomfortable, very hard and low and creaked very loudly with any change of position. The location was quiet and the family running the place was very nice. The restaurant wasn't open but there was a place within walking distance... More

We were the 4 of us and stayed one night in Hotel Domilocos in July, 2015. It was the low season, and the hotel was not full at all. Perhaps it's why we were proposed an attractive price (60 USD) for a large clean room with 4 comfortable beds and air conditionned. Large bathroom also with hot water. Godd wi-fi... More

We had reservations for 1 week and left after only 2 nights! We have stayed there previous years so knew what to expect but it got so worst and the owner just doesn't care anymore and it shows. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else!!!
