Out of the four hotels we stayed while vacationing along the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Costa Paraiso was definitely our favorite. Not only was it everything we imagined it would be, it was even better thanks to the staff. Jo greeted us when we arrived and helped us plan several activities while staying in Dominical. Shelby, the chef...

Thanks for taking the time for the review Ashley. It is very important to us. Glad you liked the activities and the restaurant. The tempura green beans are going to make it on the menu going forward - they were a hit! Love your description...'rustic beach cottage with a super cozy feel'. Thanks! Hope to see you down here again...

What a lovely spot in Dominical. . Jo and Shelby are remarkable hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The views are breathtaking, the tide pools perfect for a morning (or afternoon or evening) swim. The hotel's pool was clean and refreshing. Costa Paraiso is nice and quiet, with only five rooms, so...

From the moment you got there it felt like home. Or maybe the home you would have liked to have grown up in. From Jo who is you temporary mom, maybe a bit older (just kidding) to a fantastic staff. They set up excursions for us that we're a lot of fun. When we needed to venture out recommended restaurants...
