I like staying at boutique hotels and his place is perfect, my girlfriend and I were the last guests of the season so we had the whole hotel to ourselves for 2 days. Gary and Pablo run the hotel and are incredibly professional and detail oriented. Other than the fact that there was more staff than guests when we were... More

We hands down already miss this place so much and plan on going back when we return to Costa Rica. TikiVillas was our second place to stay on our honeymoon, and was our favorite. We arrived later than we anticipated, in the dark and rain. Gary was there to greet us and showed us to our villa (#1). The villas... More

This place is absolutely amazing. It is situated away from the main road, we had a 4x4 so it was no problem getting there. We arrived late and were still greeted with a yummy coctail. There are not many villas, so the likelihood of you having the place to yourself is high. Both times that we went to the pool,... More

What a beautiful place to stay in Costa Rica -- this place is like a dream! We spent the final few days of our honeymoon in Uvita and just LOVED our stay at the gorgeous Tikivillas Rainforest Lodge. The view from our room was absolutely breathtaking. (You definitely need to have a 4x4 to get up the hill to reach... More

I don't know quite where to begin, the well thought out bungalow that opens to a beautiful view of the sea or the staff that went well beyond my expectations to make it a perfect Honeymoon. I think I have to start with the staff. Every member of the team was flawless in service and hospitality. During our stay our... More

We stayed at Tikivillas after reading the excellent reviews on trip advisor and found it to be just as good as we had hoped. The villas were of high quality and views and location was superb. The rooms were large, the private jungle shower was a great experience - especially in the rain. Gary looked after us for most of... More

I highly recommend this terrific get away. The rooms are comfortable, the pool is clean and refreshing and the service is top notch. Gary plays many roles and makes sure guests are satisfied. He has a great personal touch too. While on our anniversary trip he made sure we were comfortable, well fed and helped to point out tours and... More

We are sitting around reminiscing about our recent trip to Costa Rica and banana coladas. We spent an amazing week at TikiVillas. We felt spoiled by the constant attention of Pablo and Gary and all the staff. The rooms are extremely comfortable with unbeatable views - the rooms are open to the sounds and sights of the forest and ocean!... More
