MAVI Surf Hotel de Dominical
Ranked #1 of 14 Hotels in Dominical
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017

We spent two nights at the gorgeous MAVI Surf Hotel in Dominical this week. The rooms were impeccably clean and the beautiful pool and courtyard invited us to relax outdoors. A delicious and generous breakfast greeted us each morning. Our hosts Max and Barbara are gracious and interesting conversationalists. And they have a small bar for Happy Hour! I highly recommend MAVI Surf!!

Good afternoon ... (James? we believe! In case you are not, ... apologizes!)
it was our honor and our pleasure having you here, ... we believe during the stormiest days of the year here in the South Pacific of Costa Rica.
We hope that you trip back home was as pleasing and hassle free as possible (including the quad ride up-hill to P. Gabriela!), and that you found your property and belongings in exceptional shape.
It was our honor and our pleasure having you here as our super welcome guests, and we want to thank you for taking the time to review MAVI on T.A., for the exceptional rating, and for the very nice words.
With no obligation at all on your side (... and with no need for specific storms), whenever you have the occasion to jump back to the South Pacific of Costa Rica, you know you have a place where you are super super welcome (and where - ... knock on wood - you can expect to stay safe!).
All the best from all of us to all of you.
Take good care and
Have a great day!

We could not have been happier with our stay here at Mavi! Max and Barbara were absolutely amazing!!!
The hotel is absolutely beautiful and immaculately kept. My boyfriend and I were beyond pleased with every aspect of our stay.
Our breakfast every morning way such an amazing treat.
Our only regret is that we had to leave! We will absolutely be back and stay for longer.
I could not recommend this hotel enough, the owners really go out of their way to make sure you feel at home and have all you need! We absolutely loved it here and were so sad to leave! Thanks Max and Barbara!

We spent 5 nights at the beautiful Mavi Surf Hotel and enjoyed every moment. The hotel is beautiful and immaculate and a wonderful breakfast is included daily. The owners of the Mavi, Max and Barbara are warm and incredible people who made our stay in Costa Rica the trip of a lifetime. One day we hope to return to Costa Rica and would stay at the Mavi Surf Hotel without question.

My wife and I are school teachers who've been traveling and surfing in Costa Rica for over 10 years. We always make Dominical a stop for a few days and found Max and Barbara's tranquil hotel this time around. By far the best place in Dominical with 8 studio rooms kept in immaculate condition that over look a fantastic pool and garden area. Max and Barbara treat each guest as if they were family with care given to every detail. Breakfast was made with Barbara's love and attention each morning and coffee was made and ready to serve by the time you sat down. Max is as passionate about his hotel as he is surfing and his family. He gave us a wealth of helpful information on local attractions and activities. It was great to share surf stories with him too. If you are a couple, small family, or traveling surfers, this is the premiere place to stay in Dominical. Opened in 2014 we wish we had found them sooner. Max and Barbara show their guest the true meaning of the Pura Vida lifestyle. We will return for many years to cone! Gracias Max and Barbara for a wonderful experience!
