Hotel DoceLunas provides luxury lodging at the base of a jungle covered mountain one mile from the beach and business district. DoceLunas has maintained much of the canopy, providing habit and food for birds and wildlife and connecting to the jungle ecosystem. You will notice that it is cooler up here in the shade than it is nearer the center of town, where there is more development and less nature.

Our guests love the free form pool with it’s colorful sun and moon mosaic. Even on the hottest days it is cool in the waterfall cave. Some of our guests who visit the pool never go in the water.

Monkeys love the palm nuts that ripen in the trees by the pool in November and December. Monkeys can enter the hotel on the mountain side and cross several hundred yards to the pool to harvest palm nuts. In March to May, the monkey’s  trip to the towering mango trees near the jungle is shorter.

When they are in season you will find them in our salads and our house made ice cream at the hotel’s restaurant Eclipse, but you can also just pick them right off the tree. Star fruit, also called “carambola” is a local favorite. Enjoy! We also have an aquaponic system growing fresh greens and a superfoods garden with moringa trees, galangal, guanabana, and noni.
