Well appointed bungalows, and two excellent pools. The highlight tor us was the huge number of toucans buzzing around the pool. We saw only a couple in the national parks but hanging out at the pool we saw lots of them flying around. Dinner was good. The only bummer was the TERRIBLE breakfast, a total joke. One of worst anywhere in Costa Rica. That is why I gave 4stars.

Staying in Rio Mar hotel has been like staying in paradise! The tropical gardens are beautiful, full of wildlife and lizards, and the two swimming pools are a delight. The staff are so welcoming and felt like being with family, and the bar and restaurant have everything you could ask for. The hotel is 2 minutes away from a lovely river and Dominical centre is only 10 minutes walk. This place really is a dream!
