Reviews for Hotel Cuna del Angel
This hotel blew our socks off. The grounds are so well kept and the view is magnificent. The first lunch we had, we watched white faced monkeys swinging from the trees in front of the restaurant. The pool was great too. The restaurant is fully gluten free and locally sourced...and tastes great. We were pleasantly surprised by this as my husband is allergic to gluten. The only draw back is it is quite expensive. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Bradley stood out as being so helpful! The only negative I would say was the bed wasn't the most comfortable and the water pressure is weak, but regardless we would 100% go back. The hotel is just beautiful and the view and location are just as excellent.

Cuna del Angel means angel's cradle. The hotel is nestled into the hillside with a view of the ocean, and it is easy to understand why the name was chosen. The layout and design of the hotel are unusual and attractive. Much attention to detail is paid to the decor. The restaurant serves excellent food and the staff is attentive. We loved staying at the hotel.

When I booked our trip to Costa Rica I accidentally booked a hotel near Dominical that didn't have air conditioning. After we spent a sweltering night in the place, it was clear to us that we needed to find a different hotel. We found Hotel Cuna del Angel just down the road from Dominical and were thrilled that they had a room for us. The room was very nice, well furnished with a quiet and very efficient air conditioner. We were also fortunate to be located near the pool and had a beautiful view of the ocean from our patio. This is a great place to stay, only five minutes from Dominical. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant, but it was definitely an above average breakfast. The restaurant also offers a great view to the west. If we find our way down the Pacific coast of Costa Rica we would definitely stay in the this hotel again.

My wife and I spent a night at this great hotel. From the beginning to the end, the service was excellent. We had dinner and breakfast, and both were delicious. The room had a very comfortable bed. An all around great stay.
