Cuna del Angel has been a hotel we have been using for years. The phrase "Cuna del Angel" means "Crib of the Angel" and it lives up to its name, being a very cozy hotel for travelers looking for a heavenly setting. This is a small boutique hotel that is located in the southern Pacific region of Costa Rica. It is situated just 7 km south of the beach town of Dominical and is surrounded by lush tropical forest. This hotel unlike many hotels in the area has very easy access right off the main highway but still has plenty of privacy. This makes for a perfect spot if you are looking for privacy but also have a number of activities planned in the area. The Cuna del Angel hotel is small. We would rate this is solid 4 star hotel and give the restaurant an easy 5 star setting and quality of food.

Because of it's convenient location, the hotel makes for a great spot for those that are looking to take day trips to the Corcovado National Park of the Isla del Cano. You are also just minutes away from the National Park Ballena often known as the "whales tail". These are two conservation areas that are visited by day tours on boats. After a day in the sun the spa at Cuna del Angel makes for a the perfect spot to visit before your fine dining.

The Cuna del Angel Hotel does not have the large rooms and is not located directly on the beach. You do have views of the Pacific Ocean from the hotel and it is just a few hundred yards from the beach. The design of the hotel is what sets it apart from almost all other hotels in Costa Rica. The owner is a German named Tom (who happens to play live music on Fridays) and he had the idea of combining colonial architecture with the ancient indigenous designs of Central America. The Cuna del Angel is a wonderful blend of these two cultures.

The hotel has a beautiful small pool that can be accessed easily just feet away from each room. Another reason this hotel is different from others is that it has different types of rooms which most hotels do but these vary quite a bit. Most of the rooms are four star rooms at four star prices but they also have a few simple bungalows that are well under the price of the other rooms. These rooms are very clean but simple and rustic. This was an idea to allow those traveling on a budget to enjoy the beautiful restaruant and pool of the Cuna del Angel.
