TravelPod Member ReviewsCosta Paraiso Dominical
Our family of 5 stayed here for 5 nights in March 2011 and totally enjoyed it! The location is beautiful, the food was amazing (Chef Bryce) and the service was great (Sandra!). The beautiful beach was all ours. We couldn't believe the value for the incredible experience.
