A great place for a sleepy beach town, close to everything and a lush courtyard! Lots of roaming pets 🙏

Easy walk to the beach. We enjoyed the sunrise at the beach. The Staff was super nice working with us for the late arrival and early departure. We just did a stop over and didn't explore the town. The room was clean, roomy and the shower has warm water.

10/10 Exceptional

Reasonably priced. Nice, quiet and tucked away from the main drag in Dominical. Not too far of a walk. Really nice interior garden area to relax in your hammock on the front porch of your bungalow. I stayed in one of the fan-cooled rooms. While it was basic, it fit the bill and was a restful place to lay my head. Stay here because you want to sleep among plants in the garden and get just outside the noise of dominical for a decent price.

What a great property, beautiful setting in the trees, it's much more lush than the picture shows! Amy and Ken are great hosts! It's a 2 min walk to the beach, and everything in town is within 10-15 min walk. They also have a little communal kitchen you can use. They will also help you book any excursions and give advice on what to do, where to eat, etc.

Nice garden like property.
Tropical Sands hotel was a nice quiet spot pretty close to the beach. The property is like staying in a garden. And there's a communal refrigerator to keep your drinks cold as well as a hammock in front of each room. We could hear the howler monkeys in the morning and got to see some scarlet macaws. The beach is only a 3 minute walk away and the town is about 7 minutes walking.
