Really nice hostel very close to the beach. The staff were extremely helpful with lots of local tips. Very clean
Scot and Kristie are such nice hosts! After a warm welcome they showed us the place. It's amazing when you realize that it's been build within less than a year by both of them. But you see all the hard work in so many details.. Besides they told us everything what you need to know to explore the area. The beach - just 200 meters from the place - is by far the best I've ever seen (you should go there by low tide)! Well, to make it short: it's really not hard to enjoy your stay at La Ballena Roja. As mentioned above.. you've got to love this place!
-Good wi-fi -Confortable bed -Delicious pizza -Safe and calm -Clean and practical -Surfboard rental -Surfing lessons next door -Snorkeling equipment rental -Bike rental -5 min walk from beautiful beach -Calm at night -Nearby supermarket -Butterfly house nearby -Very helpful tips from the owners
-Entrance fee for the national park (beach) 12 usd, though worth it.
Scott and Kristie were exceptional, they helped us with all the problems we had (luggage delayed) and they also gave us so many tips for our trip. Their coffee is by the way delicious. No negative points at all!!
Absolutly friendly Scot and Kristie. Gave us the bikes free too use due to low season and low demand. Still top service. The restaurant on ground floor has decent food for commonly high Costa Rican price level.
Although bikes are available distances to Dominical and other locations are far. You pay a price for a secluded location... not a real negative aspect.
Quirky, spacious and comfortable 'tree house' accommodation, friendly and helpful owners, great value for money. Off the main road so no road noise/ dust and just a few minutes' walk from the beach. It rained a lot the days we were there, but we really enjoyed just hanging out in the hammocks!
Comfortable beds above a great local restaurant, and just a five minute walk to the beach. What more could you ask for? Can't beat the price, and the owners are great. Would definitely return!
Welcoming and helpful owner, friendly restaurant downstairs with good food that closed at a reasonable hour, location a short walk to beach.
Room heats up quickly during daytime - but washed items dry fast!
Scott, the owner picked me up from the bus stop, drove me to the travel agency and drove several of us to a local water falls. He couldn't be more helpful.
I wish there was warm water for the shower.
The owner was extremely helpful. Restaurant below was great, Uvita special pizza was specially tasteful. Location next to the beach (100m). Free bike rental. Clean. Nice balcony.
