Tiki Villas Rainforest Lodge & Spa, Dominical, Costa Rica
Stunning views
Brilliant place with stunning views and very attentive service. Best thing was seeing wildlife like toucans and howler monkeys right on the doorstep.

My new 2nd home
We absolutely loved this place from the moment we arrived we were greeted by incredibly polite staff . The staff made the place very welcoming and easy to stay comfortable . The room was very clean and the view was spectacular . This town was unlike any place I ever visited . I am not huge on tourism I would rather hang with locals and this place was just that. The town's of uvita and dominical were very tight knit . If you get a chance go eat at kemvari it's a little place on the side of the road and is great food and the family that runs it were great . Tikivillas and uvita were an amazing experience .

Dont waste your money!
My experience here was not good. We stayed 2 nights. During that time we had no or barely any hot water. No pressure from the hot water. Electricity went out a few times. Internet/WiFi service was horrible. At one point the Internet went out completely. I actually fixed there Internet service for them. This place has no paved roads. There was no phone in the room to even call the concierge. Had no towels in the room. Bottom line is that for the money they charge here you are better off staying somewhere nicer with more amenities for the same price or cheaper. I know I will not be stay here again.

Very Good8.0
A paradise combined with great service. Only drawback is it's a bit pricey (but not unlike all of Costa Rica).

Treetop view and relaxation at its best
Hotel is amazing. Staff was incredibility nice. We were only one of a few guests staying there, but we never saw another soul other than staff during our staff. Off season is a great time to enjoy this relaxing jungle top hotel. We saw toucans, heard howler monkeys, and enjoyed a brilliant thunderstorm in our mountain top Villa. We went for our 6th wedding anniversary and I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. Their onsite trail is pretty awesome too, just be very careful if its been raining but it's totally worth it if you're up for a little adventure.
