We live in Heredia and went for the “festival de Ballenas” to Uvita. We choose for this Lodge because of all the good reviews. The lodge is located in the jungle but fortunately not too far away from the beaches. It is really a special place. Our room was located in a beautiful garden with an amazing mountain view. We...

I went for a couple nights to this nicely located place up the hills of Uvita and you can bet it was a good choice.

The lodging is top notch in quality. Very nice comfy beds and pillows, solft towels and a superb bathroom, all very well decorated, located on a hillside. The lodges all have their own path to them, so very private. On top of that they come with a small fridge that is very useful for cooling your drinks for a trip...

It took us a long time to find this place as the signage is minimal. It's up a long dirt road which was a bit scary at night in our 2-wheel drive car. The owners are friendly, and grounds are pretty. The room itself was just ok. It was attractive enough, but smelled of mildew and had no AC. It's...

“All studio rooms are spread out over a few acres, so there is great privacy no matter where you stay. We stayed in the lowest studio unit on the property( which is built on a hill), and it was a bit of a trek back up and down each time. So, keep this in mind when asking for the lower studio.”
