Super location in Dominical, everything is in walking distance. Ken and Amy were very welcoming and happy to share their knowledge of the area.

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.

Garden area skillfully set up to maximize privacy of rooms as well as set up several group seating areas. Away from the crowd yet easy to walk to the beach and restaurants

A cute beach hotel with garden area, hammocks, and resident cats and dog. This rooms are clean and basic, available with fan or air conditioning, and there is a common fridge for guests to use. Just off the main street, it's close to the beach in Dominical. Bring a flashlight if walking at night because the street lights don't keep the one road well lit. Very walkable to restaurants (Dominical is a small beach town). The staff are helpful with restaurant or activity recommendations, and they will call for transportation or a tour if you request. This was my second time staying at the hotel. We'll be back! :)
