Fodor's Expert Review Coconut Grove Oceanfront Cottages

Dominicalito Beach, Km 147, Costanera Hwy., 3 km (2 miles) south of Dominical, Dominical, Puntarenas, 11909, Costa Rica

Practically on the beach, this well-maintained cluster of equipped cabins and beach houses is ideal for travelers who want to fend for themselves, turn off the air-conditioning at night, and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. There's a small but pretty pool, and yoga classes are given twice a week on a large covered platform. The two bamboo-furnished beach houses have full kitchens and sleep up to four. The three cottages have either full kitchens or kitchenettes and room for two to four. The largest cottage, No. 5, is closest to the water with a terrace facing the palm-fringed beach. Book early; repeat customers tend to fill the place. The American owners have friendly dogs, cats, and a parrot, among other pets.
