10/10 Exceptional

Scott the owner was very helpful and friendly. The outdoor kitchen and the pool was clean and inviting. The proximity to the most beautiful beach and National Park makes this a great location. Scott helped us to book a boating tour for whale and dolphin watching. I would go back to this place in a heartbeat. Thumbs up!

The details were lovely; the bed was comfortable, the sheets and towels were high quality, the shower soap and shampoo smell amazing, and there were items for cooking, coffee, etc. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great place away from the crowds
We enjoyed our five day stay here so much that we extended for 2 further nights. Although there is not a great deal to do in Uvita, the national park is beautiful ($6 entry fee) and Scott, the owner, is happy to arrange any trips for you. October is a quiet time of year, so although there are a few good places to eat they were either closed or closed early. There are two small groceries stores nearby, and a really good supermarket in easy walking distance. However, the cabin and gardens are so comfy and peaceful it was a great place just to relax. The bed is incredibly comfy, the pool is nice for a dip to cool off, and the gardens are great for bird watching. There is also a great rancho for outdoor cooking, and a good outside seating area. Scott was a great host and made us feel very welcome, he even did some laundry for us. If you are looking for a great place to stay away from the crowds, then look no further.

We loved our stay at Cabinas D'Val! Judy and Scott are so nice and know lots about the area. The property is beautiful and includes a pool and really cool area outside for communal cooking so that you can hang out in comfy chairs in the shade while eating, or sit by the pool. The rooms are clean and well stocked with cutlery, plates, glasses, etc, and have a mini fridge, microwave, kettle, and a chorreador. The nearby beach Playa Uvita isn't crowded at all and stretches on for miles. You can walk all the way down to the whale tail if you want. While we stayed at Cabinas D'Val, we went on a great snorkeling trip to Cano Island (through Bahia Adventures). Definitely a great place to stay if you want proximity to this tour, or are interested in a few relaxing beach days. Thanks Scott and Judy! :)

Feeling of intimacy, only 3 cabinas in a nice garden where you can observe birds and iguanas in the surrounding trees. Good size pool, air conditioned rooms, plenty of filtered water available. On the patio you can cook, have a few drinks, read, listen to some music... there is also documentation about the regions and animals/plants. We could walk to the beach (sunsets!!) and to a few good restaurants. We really enjoyed spending a week there. Judy and Scot are super nice and helpful.

Amazing vacation in Uvita
Cabinas D'Val was fantastic! Scott was a wonderful host and helped us book incredible trips to Corcovado National Park and Cano Island. The location is peaceful, but very close to the beach and lots of restaurants and activities in Uvita. Both the room and the common areas were very comfortable, and the coffee was great! We just wish we'd been able to stay longer :)

The Cabinas is a lovely oasis hidden away in Uvita, yet close to the beach, the restaurant and businesses. The owners, Judy and Scott are great hosts, they make you feel welcome and are super helpful if you need to organize any activities or get a restaurant recommendation. The rooms are charming and the bed super comfortable. Don't forget to relax in the pool to the tune of your favorite songs that Alexa will gladly play for you :)
