Amazing and beautiful hotel perfectly located close to the beach and restaurants of Dominical. We could not have asked for a cleaner or more comfortable accommodation. Fantastic breakfast and pool. Large rooms and wonderful open areas to relax. The only thing better than the accommodations were our amazing hosts - so friendly, accommodating, informative and fun!

Good afternoon Kathrine! We are super glad to read from you (and we hope that the continuation of your family trip is proceeding as smooth and lean as possible). We want to thank you very much for taking the time to review MAVI on TripAdvisor, for the excellent rating, and for the very kind words. It was our honor and pleasure having yourself and your beautiful diving g-daughter here! ... we are very proud that our pool witnessed one of her first (if not her first) headfirst plunges into the water (and with some style indeed!). With no obligation at all on your side, if and whenever you have the occasion to jump back into the South Pacific of Costa Rica, you know you have a place where you are super super welcome! From all of us to all of you, all and only the very best! Pura Vida!

What an absolute gem! I loved every moment here - the Mavi Surf Hotel was truly perfect for our week at surf camp as a crew of moms-escaping-for-an-adventure. Beyond the beautiful grounds, spotless rooms with lovely sheets, delicious breakfasts and cold beers in their fridge, it’s hands-down the family that owns the Mavi that makes it so incredibly special. We felt as if we were staying with old friends! Barbara and Max were friendly and helpful in every way, and their daughters too, with assistance from yoga to the national parks. I wish I was there today, enjoying Viola’s tasty granola and relaxing in the pool with smiles all around. Couldn’t recommend more highly!

Kellyyy!!!! ... and all of the other surfing moms! How are you!? We hope you all are great! We want to thank you very much for taking the time to review MAVI on TripAdvisor, for the excellent rating, and for the very kind words. Viola thanks a lot for your nice words on her Vio-rganic Granola (I have to admit she does a very good job)! We also wish you were here today. With no obligation at all on your side, whenever you (or any of the other moms) have the opportunity to jump back into the South Pacific of Costa Rica, you already know you have a place that can call home! Take good care and Pura Vida P.S.: the whiskey was delicious, thanks!!!

The family that runs Mavi Surf Hotel is adorable. Barbara and Max and their girls are so warm and welcoming - they are integral to the experience. We stayed at Mavi for a week as a group of friends to go to surf camp and we loved it without measure. It was immaculate, beautiful, well-kept, perfect pool, very nice beds, nice linens, great location, fantastic breakfasts... we felt so at home and relaxed. Max was always ready with a beer post -surfing, but it is not a party scene. I want to bring my family (with older teens) back here for sure to enjoy this place, the surfing, and the sweet town of Dominical.

The hotel MAVI is immaculate and the owners, Barbara and Max, have carved out a little piece of paradise on the out-skirts o Dominical. The rooms are comfortable with AC and a tiny kitchenette with a Fridge to keep your beers cold ! The breakfasts are delicious and the service is impeccable. The owners are very friendly, caring and accommodating making your stay here a very pleasant one. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the beach and town. This place is amazing !!!

Good afternoon Rosalieee!!! (and Alex), It is great to hear from you! We hope that the continuation of your trip has been as lean and hassle free as possible (and that bureaucracies in San Jose have been limited to what strictly necessary ... we apologize again for the inconvenience!). It was really our honor and pleasure having you here (and be part of Alex "one in a kind" birthday). We want to thank you very much for taking the time to review MAVI on TripAdvisor, for the excellent rating, and for the very kind words. With no obligation at all on your side, if within one of your incursions into the Land of Solo Bueno you have some spare time to visit the South Pacific, you know you have a place where you are super-super welcome! And ... in case other Hotels take the time to read TripAdvisor reviews, ... these guests are amazing!!! All and only the very best from all of us to both of you! (P.S.: For Alex: waves are getting bigger and a huge swell is foreseen for the 21st!)
