My friends and I decided to pick Pachamama to celebrate my birthday. Bruno was very kind because waited for us until almost midnight for the Check in, it was an accident on the road. The place is roomy and beautiful, surounding of trees. Early in the morning we heard the monkeys and some birds, we saw a sloth too. Sandra...

My first trip was in 2011 and it poured the entire time; I still wanted to return. I chose Pachamama again because of the location and was pleasantly surprised to find the bungalows and the grounds were significantly improved. My friends and I stayed in the larger bungalows with kitchen and it appears that they may all have been upgraded....

When, at dusk, we arrived in Punta Uva to find out that our reservation at Casa Tres Mono fell through because the owner had double-booked her place, Bruno and Sandra, the friendly managers of Pachamama, saved the day! They quickly arranged for us to have a nice cabin experience at Pachamama. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was so good...

Really enjoyed our 5-night stay -- took advantage of the river kayaks, petting the Pachamama pups, and walking distance to beach, restaurants, and more. We were greeted on our first night by monkeys dropping nuts from the tree canopy onto our cabin (the Perezoso). At first alarming, but definitely unique and entertaining. All three major monkey species (howler, spider, white-faced),...

Pachamama Hotel is a well kept, 70's ambiance, wooden cabins, surrounded by a manicured jungle-like gardens. My husband and I stayed there for two night in June 2016.
