    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!
