'Excellent'/ 'Good' ratings not at all accurate - see other booking sites for their reviews. Anything good can only be focussed on the owner Jo who is friendly - however your stay does not depend on how nice she is or not. I don't like to sound harsh, and am not very fussy/ don't have extra high expectations - but...

I stayed for 5 days and had one of the best holidays of my life. The owner Jo has recently taken over the management of the hotel and she is renovating the whole place. She was so friendly and always helpful, with a great pot of coffee ready every morning. The hotel is five minutes walk from the beach and...

Rio Lindo is the place to stay in Dominical. It's perfectly located in town. The pool bar is a hub for fun locals and adventurous travelers, and the food and drinks are delicious. It's a beautiful place to catch the sunset, and you can see the river and the ocean from your bar stool. The owner and staff are gracious...

We arrived late at night and the owner greeted us and was very accommodating!! Rooms are newly renovated and great for the price. Pool area was really nice. Morning coffee was a bonus too. Highly recommend!!!

Recent change in ownership has renovated 80% of the rooms. Beautiful tile work in bath, floors and showers. Flat screen TVs. Central Air. American mattress. Bolo wood tables and accents around room plus wood craved doors. Wow a score in funky Playa Dominical. On the river a block from 'downtown'. Huge pool. Nice grounds. No exaggeration, the biggest best pork...

Highly recommend Rio Linda for a comfortable stay in Dominical. Booked an apartment room as part of our Surfing Spring Break extravaganza for three people and it was perfect. The AC was actually COLD which is so needed after hours of fun and sun. The balcony had a beautiful view of the resort and river and a comfortable hammock to...

We found Rio Lindo by chance and were immediately astonished by the kindness of Jo the new owner.We had no reservation the first night and she helped us to find an an alternative solution. We were so touched by her attitude that we decided to immediately book for the next day. Although, thanks to her kindness and the fact she...

The room was as expected: a bed, a table and a bathroom. Plus A/C and a TV. It is not fancy or private but perfectly functional and in walking distance to all the restaurant and stores on their main street. The pool was large and it lay just off the bar/restaurant which is a pretty busy place and clearly their...

I stayed here at Rio Lindo while in Dominical over the last week and it was perfect! The owner Joe was so nice and welcoming! She was always available if you needed her and she always had a smile. The room that my significant other and I stayed in had a brand new A/C unit that cooled the room down...

This place has great potential. The new owner, Jo has made bathroom renovations in the rooms. Hot showers, tv in the room, air conditioner all good. Downstairs rooms are small, bed hard. Two chairs outside. Look out on the pool. The grounds and pool area need tons of work still. The proximity to the bar next door, means late night...
