We are an Eco friendly Hotel

Eco Hotel Villas Río Mar is committed to work in an environmentally friendly way. We are continuously trying to improve our ways of working that benefits the Environment. This is the reason why we are CST certified. Read all about this certification and the Eco things we do, by selecting one of the topics (to the right/ below).

The Eco things we do

Herewith a list of some of the environmentally friendly things we do.

Green energy

All our bungalows have solar panels which provide sufficient electricity for the AC’s to run. Solar panels are also providing the warm water in the rooms.

Waste Collection & Recycling

You will find several waste collection units throughout our resort for guests to use. These units collect waste separately: glass, paper, cardboard and others. In our waste collection center we also separate the waste that we use in the resort. The separated waste will be picked up by a variety of companies that will recycle the waste. A good example is the old oil of our fryers; this waste product is used for the production of things like body creams and bio fuel (and more).

Responsible Gardening

We do not use insecticides, fungicides or any other chemical to maintain our beautiful gardens.

Biodegradable Products

All the cleaning products we use are biodegradable; such as hand soap, dishwasher soap, washing machine soap, floor cleaner etc.

Saving water

The urinals in the restrooms of our restaurant, conference room and pool use sophisticated techniques that do not require water.

Keeping our Beach clean

Each month a different group of employees cleans the beach of Dominical. Throughout the year, each employee of Villas Rio Mar helps removing waste from the beach we all love so much.

Corcovado Foundation Partnership

We are a friend and sponsor of the Corcovado Foundation. We ask each of our guests if they want to donate USD 1,- (or more) when checking out.

Reforestation

In partnership with Cuna del Ángel Hotel, Villas Rio Mar helps to plant trees every year. The trees are usually planted in Marino Ballena National Park.

Employee incentives

We give incentives to the employees that want to help us with the Eco friendly activities as mentioned above.
