Beautiful location right next to the sea. Loved the garden planted around the cabinas. Johanna was very helpful in locating another dive centre when the Punta Uva dive centre had packed up for the season where I had registered to do the PADI Open Water certificate. Not luxurious but perfect for a back to nature experience and so was great... More

We stayed here 3 nights and it worked out very well for us. We stayed at the room which is attached to the main house. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Jungle noises and domestic animal noises as expected. We slept very well here. We ordered breakfast each morning and liked it very much. Cedric and Joanna were... More

Cozy cabins almost at the beach, just a few meters away. If you are looking for a quiete place, Punta Uva is made for you. Cabins are nice and clean, with a terrace. Hosts are friendly and helpful. You can get bikes for free, just keep in mind that they are very simple. You can get also snorkeling equipment for... More

I hate having to give such a bad review as the owner did seem to be a lovely a man but the place was just awful. On booking the room here, we were sent an email to say our reservation was for a cabin (as you would expect from the name). Disappointment when we arrived as we were led to... More

We stayed at Cabinas Punta Uva almost a year ago -- it was a much needed escape from Winter but ended up being plagued with trouble. That being said, despite all the issues, the folks at Cabinas Punta Uva helped make it an amazing getaway that I recommend often and would return to in a heartbeat. First things first: if... More

We spent one week in Cabinas Punta Uva in September and we totally loved that place. Positioned right in front of the amazing playa Punta Uva, it is the perfect place to relax. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, you can hear the sound of the waves and of the jungle at the same time. Johanna and Cedric are... More

My girlfriend and I spent one week in Cabinas Punta Uva which is led by a European couple (Cedric and Joanna). They are more than lovely and helpful! The Cabinas are directly at the beach, the room is very clean and you can make your own breakfast and cook in the kitchen. We loved the athmosphere which is so relaxing... More

We wandered down the coast from sleepy Cahuita, through the tie-dyed, dreadlocked den that is Puerto Viejo to Punta Uva and peace. Not quite roughing it, with just enough comfort and convenience to let you relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds, beach and company. We shopped for groceries (Pali, where the locals go) and cooked in the open-air kitchen listening... More

I visited and reserved a specific room, and discussed my allergies to mold with the owner, thankful that the room I rented did not smell of mold. When I arrived, after I had paid, I was told the room I resereved had been rented and I would have the room next door...which was much smaller and wreaked of mold... All... More

Cute colorful cabins were charming and comfortable & the price was reasonable ($50 per night for one queen bed, and a nice breakfast spread made by owner Cedric for an extra $8 per person.) Location was beautiful (truly just 100 meters to the beach) & owners were friendly and helpful- They had three bikes available for us to use, which... More
