My husband and I stayed here for the last week of our honeymoon. Enzo, the owner, and his wife and staff were so sweet. His wife doesn't speak much English - only Spanish. Enzo speaks Italian, some Spanish, and English well enough to take care of his guests and recommend sights to see in the area. You can tell he... More

My hubby and I stopped at ma'amI e papa's for a single night but I ish we could have stayed longer. The place is wonderful, independent private cottages dot the hill of the property. Everything is very clean and modern Inside. The pool is lovely, the billiards and bar are a fun unexpected addition. I loved the wooden swings at... More

This is the best of the places I visited in Costa Rica. I booked for 1 night and extended to FOUR it was so nice. The owners, Enzo (Italian) and Jinet (Costa Rican) take clear pride in their beautiful little cabins, their Italian restaurant, and in being perfect hosts. Enzo is very knowledgeable about the area, sent me to the... More

We spent two evenings at Mamma e Papa and they were both incredible. The service is outstanding and the food is equally as amazing. Made to feel at home instantly and was family friendly. Will make this a regular stop on ALL future visits.

This is a fantastic quiet hotel. It's off the beaten path just south of Uvita in Ojochal but easy to find. We were greeted by Enzo, the owner/operator, who saw to our every need. The bungalow rooms were spotless, clean and comfortable. The grounds were absolutely beautiful, manicured and luxurious. We saw toucans and macaws in the trees surrounding the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, great view, clean and spacious view, and amazing food. Ojochal is a good option for those interested in the area surrounding the Parque Marino Ballena without having to stay in the busier town of Uvita.

OK, as others have noted, these cabinas are SPOTLESS, and clearly the owner takes pride in maintaining them (thus the many signs about what one can and cannot bring into them). And the breakfast we had was fantastic esp the coffee. However, the property is in town and backs onto a creek/wooded area, and Ojochal is full of loose dogs,... More

We just departed this wonderful little hotel following a one week family vacation. We also stayed here in March 2013 and returned because our initial experience was so pleasant. Although there are only four cabinas, this lends to it's charm and peacefulness. It is set in a beautiful garden with a jungle backdrop, behind a fantastic italian restaurant. We were... More

We stayed here two nights and dearly wanted to stay longer; we would have gone out of our way to do so if we hadn't already booked reservations further up the coast. It really isn't too hard to reach the property - no vertiginous climbs, and the roads aren't too bad. The property is just stunning, a steep, sweeping, beautifully... More

This was such a beautiful place to stay. Your room is in an individual cabin which made it feel so special. The biggest thing for me though was the unbelievable food. Anyone who has been t CR often knows that there tends to be little variety in the food. Well the food here was no only great for CR, but... More
