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

The surrounding gardens and jungle were beautiful - not too manicured but maintained around the house and cabins. We saw howlers and a sloth just above the cabins. It is right off the beach and you can see and hear the waves pounding the shore from the communal kitchenette and "patio." Along the coast, the beach with jungle background is... More

My wife and I came to Punta Uva to relax. Cabinas Punta Uva was exactly what we needed: - It's situated in the jungle just set back from the best beach in the area. Doorstep beaching! - There are 3 double cabins available, ensuring your stay always feels intimate. - Cedric and Johanna are excellent hosts and are always available... More
