Fodor's Expert Review Cuna del Angel Hotel and Spa

Costanera Hwy., Puertocito, 9 km (5 miles) south of Dominical, Dominical, Puntarenas, 11909, Costa Rica

This elegant hotel is a heavenly spot for those who like to indulge themselves, with a small spa, an excellent restaurant, and exceptional service. The original 16 rooms have elegant, dark-wood furniture, comfortable beds topped with plush linens, and subtle angelic touches. Other luxuries include coffeemakers, soaking tubs, and spectacular stained-glass windows. Six Jungle Rooms are smaller and darker, but cheaper and very comfortable, with pickled-wood walls, antiqued armoires, and balconies facing the forest or garden. The new Wellness Center offers professional dental, medical, and aesthetic services. Once you feel rejuvenated, a lush garden and a pretty infinity pool with an ocean view draw you outdoors. The romantic, high-ceilinged terrace restaurant, aglow in shades of royal blue and gold, has a very sophisticated menu; the tender osso buco is cooked to perfection and the menu is completely gluten-free. The breakfast buffet is also excellent.
