Mavi Surf Hotel, Dominical
A Most Enjoyable Stay!
The hotel was absolutely charming. Excellent breakfasts. Very warm and attentive hosts who made us feel at home. Location was perfect since we were traveling without a car. We were able to leisurely walk to all the of the main points of interest in Dominical. The beach and the town are literally steps away. Would definitely stay there again.

Peaceful Hotel With A Fantastic Location
Mavi Surf Hotel, run by an uber-friendly and knowledgeable Italian couple, is everything I want in a hotel: clean, comfortable, quiet, and centrally located. Just a two minute stroll from Dominical's amazing beach, the hotel is still far enough away from the town's main stretch to give it a secluded, tranquil feel even though all restaurants are still within walking distance. The included breakfast is also fantastic! We had no issues with parking at the hotel, and were able to store our luggage with the owners on the day we checked out so we could explore the area without worrying about someone breaking into our vehicle. As a bonus, our room came with a private balcony and hammock!

Best Surf Hotel in the Area
This is probably the best surfer hotel in Dominical and possibly the best hotel overall. The two people who own it are awesome. Max, in particular was very helpful with helping me figure out the best place to surf and background knowledge of the beach, tides and area.

Best hotel ever!
I had a great time at Mavi. Max, Barbara, and the whole staff are amazing! Extremely friendly and helpful people. Breakfast is one of a kind. Pool is awesome, rooms are fantastic, and the location is perfect for Playa Dominical.
