Hotel Villas Río Mar offers more than only rooms you can stay in a comfortable Villas. Family rooms were designed for those people who would like to feel like home at only 900 metres away from Domincial Beach.
Our aim is to offer our guests a comparable comfort they have at home with 2 double beds, air condition and fan, cable TV and equiped kitchen(fridge, rice-cooker, microwave, blender, pan, coffee-maker, tableware...).
There is wireless internet all over the property (free use of our internet desk)
While staying at the Villas, you can enjoy a professional restaurant, a spacious pool, a jungle SPA, a tennis court, – tour desk, – car rental, – surf school, and a multifunctional spacious room for all type of events or activities (you name it, we organize it), we aim to offer all the basic functions of a comfortable resort as well.
Villas Rio Mar feels as ´´being in the middle of nowhere´´, but we are not. We are on walking distance to Dominical beach with shops, restaurants, banks, medical services, nightlife, and a police station. We are close to the coastal highway, but far enough to keep it quiet in the night.
By car it is a beautiful trip through the mountains over the inter American highway. In San Isidro, just follow the signs to Dominical (30kms).
For those coming from Escazu or the San José airport it will be faster to take the costanera (coastal highway), via Jaco and Quepos. Avoiding the dense traffic through San José could make an hour difference.
Entering Dominical, the road shows a split after a hundred meters; to the left leads to the beach (400 meters), and to the right goes to Villas Rio Mar (500 meters).
By bus the same choices. Either by MUSOC through the mountains to San Isidro and then a taxi to Dominical, or by TRACOPA via the costanera. On friendly request this bus stops in Dominical. Don´t walk with your luggage to the hotel. Just jump into the local café, order your favorite drink, and ask them to call (phone number hidden). We will pick you up in ten minutes.
For those who want to rent a car it´s good to know that our activity desk also is the local representative of SOLID RENT A CAR. As such we are able to offer a free ´´drop off´´ or ´´pick up´´ in our hotel or at the airport in San Jose.
For the more luxury guests, we are just 30 minutes from the airport in Quepos with daily flights to and from San Jose.

I’m Daniela and I work for Villas Rio Mar, which was founded in 1992. We started as a hotel, but due to changing demands we now have some full-equipped apartments to offers as well.
Which means there is best of both worlds for our guests: You’ll have your private apartment, with the option to use the hotel facilities (swimming pool, restaurant, spa, tour desk).
The villas are located throughout the whole park, which can be seen as one great garden
