Facilities and capacity

There are a variety of fantastic spaces at DoceLunas, a hotel that marries raw natural surroundings with refined architecture and comfort.

Ceremonies are a thing of heavenly beauty at DoceLunas - couples can enjoy tying the knot in the venue’s garden, on the edge of a genuine jungle. What’s more, everything is provided for you to make it official - from the officiant to the floral arch. Cocooned by greenery, you will find it difficult to discover a more tropical, adventurous place to say ‘I do’ as native toucans and macaws fly overhead and leafy green plants sway in a gentle breeze. In fact, with over five acres of garden space, there is more than enough room for a high-spirited occasion with a lengthy guest list.

For the ceremony, you and your intended can have it in the same location as your reception, if you like. Alternatively, the conference center or restaurant can be booked out for your convenience. In the expansive cathedral-ceilinged restaurant, you can fit up to 100 guests for an elegant and relaxed dining experience.

Services offered

When it comes to wedding cuisine, expectations are high and meeting them is crucial. At DoceLunas, the Eclipse restaurant is sure to please even the fussiest of palates. While DoceLunas provides a variety of wedding packages to suit numerous budgets and preferences, all ceremony packages come with reception dinner/party included. Here, the couple and their guests can enjoy a diverse locally sourced menu. In fact, many of the vegetables and fruit are sourced from the venue’s own trees and its aquaponic garden. Some of the menu’s items include grilled pork loin, beef tenderloin, and rare tuna steak.


The pastel-colored tiling, charming wooden beams, and minimalist decoration make for unfussy room decor sure to delight. A variety of room styles and sizes are available, so that your guests can also stay in the venue if they so desire. In fact, some packages include extra accommodation, ideal for the wedding party.


The self-sufficiency of the venue’s restaurant aside, surely the most eye-catching element of DoceLunas is the landscape that it sits on. What better and more unique way to make your union official than in a wondrously colorful place nestled against a Costa Rican jungle? If that doesn’t suit you, the hotel also offers the option to get married on a tropical beach. What’s more, couples are welcome to upgrade to include a post-reception pool party, as well as opting for some late-night party entertainment. This place has it all - why settle for anything less?

Best Wedding Experience Ever

DoceLunas was fantastic!!! It was so easy to work and plan with Carmen. She sent excel sheets to select what we were looking for including food, apps, cake, flowers, bouquets, hair/makeup, etc., connected us to photographers, and created photo boards of ideas we would like to include at the reception! The flowers were UNBELIEVABLE for the ceremony (they built a pergola and had a flower walk way!) and all the bouquets and table arrangements. The staff was so friendly and fantastic. We were able to reserve the entire hotel for friends/family which made it feel like we were in a place surrounded by our people! DoceLunas helped with transportation to and from the airport for all guests, was very responsive, and truly was the best wedding experience we could have asked for! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Costa Rica Dream Wedding

My husband and I found Doce Lunas online and through a virtual tour of the property booked it as our wedding destination. We could not have asked for anything more perfect. Every single member of the staff was incredible and treated us as if they were taking care of their own family. It was the most stress-free and enjoyable wedding we could have asked for. The event coordinators really highlighted the beauty of the property and then also helped organize activities for the rest of the week. I cannot say enough about Doce Lunas, it is the perfect intimate venue.

Beautiful property with wonderful staff

Recently had my wedding here and we could not have been happier with the outcome! From the beginning, we had a great experience with our coordinator, Carmen and she was the most attentive and helpful person ever! The decorations were beautiful, the floral arrangements both for the bouquets and decorations were absolutely gorgeous. We really were amazed with everything they had to offer us. The staff was friendly and helpful, as well. The place is very well kept, very affordable, and it was just beyond our expectations.
