We really liked staying here. It is super convenient, nice grounds, friendly staff and reasonably priced. We had a small room, nicely decorated(recently renovated), and had everything we needed. We were on the ground floor close to the pool. The a/c worked great and had good water pressure in the shower that had a nice rain shower head. The restaurant/bar...

This is my second visit to this resort and is definitely the best place to stay in Domical! Lively, friendly bar with a cool river breeze, view of the ocean and picturesque pool with swim up bar. My room was totally renovated with a cool, one-of-a-kind wood headboard, new tv, excellent a/c and a beautiful stone sink. The grounds are...

I have been to Dominical often and occasionally stopped in to Rio Lindo. This year I was surprised to see new ownership and a new attitude. What a difference! Fun is the operative word here, as Jo the new owner is eager to please and greets everyone with a warm welcome smile. Friendly bar crowd, music never crazy loud, and...

Great staff behind the bar. Both bartenders Todd and the girl who grew up in Elizabeth nj we're very friendly and made feel at home. Restaurant and pool very clean. Security at night made feel safe. Great river/ocean view which would make for great sunset pictures. Small enjoyable walk to the beach where you get to see all of Domincal....

'Excellent'/ 'Good' ratings not at all accurate - see other booking sites for their reviews. Anything good can only be focussed on the owner Jo who is friendly - however your stay does not depend on how nice she is or not. I don't like to sound harsh, and am not very fussy/ don't have extra high expectations - but...

I stayed for 5 days and had one of the best holidays of my life. The owner Jo has recently taken over the management of the hotel and she is renovating the whole place. She was so friendly and always helpful, with a great pot of coffee ready every morning. The hotel is five minutes walk from the beach and...

Rio Lindo is the place to stay in Dominical. It's perfectly located in town. The pool bar is a hub for fun locals and adventurous travelers, and the food and drinks are delicious. It's a beautiful place to catch the sunset, and you can see the river and the ocean from your bar stool. The owner and staff are gracious...

We arrived late at night and the owner greeted us and was very accommodating!! Rooms are newly renovated and great for the price. Pool area was really nice. Morning coffee was a bonus too. Highly recommend!!!

Recent change in ownership has renovated 80% of the rooms. Beautiful tile work in bath, floors and showers. Flat screen TVs. Central Air. American mattress. Bolo wood tables and accents around room plus wood craved doors. Wow a score in funky Playa Dominical. On the river a block from 'downtown'. Huge pool. Nice grounds. No exaggeration, the biggest best pork...

Highly recommend Rio Linda for a comfortable stay in Dominical. Booked an apartment room as part of our Surfing Spring Break extravaganza for three people and it was perfect. The AC was actually COLD which is so needed after hours of fun and sun. The balcony had a beautiful view of the resort and river and a comfortable hammock to...
