Lovely stay here
Wonderful hosts, lovely breakfast and good location. (Uvita is pretty remote) The room was really nice and I had a great sleep, bathroom curtain was a bit dodgy/needed to be replaced. Over all a good value and reccomended place to stay.

The many trees and privacy. There is an excellent Cuban restaurant on the property, and a good chef and cook. No pressures , either use Pool or make a short walk to the beach, with senderos. Good bird watching. It was a pleasant stay.

We enjoyed our stay here. The owner, Raul, was amazing. The restaurant on site was closed but he offered to make us food anyway. All the staff were nice and accommodating. He’s upgrading the rooms. Max the puppy was the sweetest thing. It’s anout a 10-15 walk through the jungle to an incredible beach. Great stay!
Carly, us1 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Great family (couple) operated hotel, with direct access to the beach located within a beautiful national park. It was one of the best experiences of our journey throughout Costa Rica, especially because the property owners made us feel so much like family instead of guests that we did not want to leave and are missing them so very much! Great Cuban Restuarant and cuisine, wonderfully styled rooms within jungle canopy that was amazing! Very clean, neat, comfortable, spacious rooms and an awesome feeling of Pura VIDA! We’ll be back soon & thank you for making our short stay so wonderfully pleasurable and relaxing!
