The beach in Uvita is just amazing! You can walk for miles, and there are spots where there are no other people on the beach or in the water. There is also fantastic view of the ocean from this hotel. The owners, Dana and Jan, are really warm and welcoming. I would definitely return!

You should definitely go to this place. It's a small hotel, with only two rooms. The owners are very friendly, and pick you up from the busstop and bring you there. It is located a 20 minute walk outside Uvita, but it is easy to stop a car and let them take you there. Jan (the owner) always tells you... More

Jan 28-31, 2014 - We stayed 3 nights and could have stayed longer. Dana and Jan are superb hosts and made us feel very welcome to their home. The bottom floor has 2 rooms with an outdoor kitchen, the pool is a great place to view sunsets over Marina Bellena National Park (with a glass of wine is even better!),... More

We stayed at Hotel Pacific Dream for 3 nights in February 2014 and really enjoyed our stay! Dana and Jan were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating and friendly, and they provided a great breakfast that included fresh fruit, toast, meat and cheese, and eggs and bacon. The two rooms are well-sized, have A/C, and are quite comfortable. The porch... More
