“Best place we stayed in costa rica...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This place is spectacular... Weren't sure what to expect.. after driving up a dirt road (common in costa rica) we arrived and were astounded by this place.... it reminds me of switzerland but in a rainforest environment. The landscaping and surrounding environment is heavenly. This place is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!!! The owner has class and is obviously very passionate about this place in making it first class and in maintaining it well. This place is family owned and they are wonderful people which makes it even more pleasant. The food here is also very good, italian style. The cabins are great and we ended up staying here instead of going to the beach as it was a very nice place to relax, play pool, swim, and take a nap in the hammocks. We would have loved to stay here longer...

Mamma e papa' is a great place to stay. The restaurant is amazing. Enzo was so accommodating with everything. The rooms are completely separate from one another they are like their own little cabana. They are very nice and clean. The pool is situated at the bottom of a hill with beautiful landscaping everywhere.

My boyfriend and I decided to spend a few days in the Uvita area and we chose to stay at Mamma e Papa hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. Let me tell you, this place is paradise, the hotel and restaurant are carved into the side of a hill facing east, the grounds and views are GORGEOUS, the cabins are private and amazing, and the food... don't get me started on how wonderful the food was. We sampled a few of the pasta dishes (all phenomenal), a pizza, caprese, bruschetta, and breakfast fruits and pancakes! All made from scratch, mostly in house, some of the best Italian food I've ever had. Enzo and Jeanette, the hotel proprietors, were the most gracious hosts, everything was clean and tidy, simply wonderful. I absolutely would recommend Mamma e Papa to anyone traveling to Costa Rica, especially who wants to visit the Pacific Coast.

With my husband we spent 5 nights in Hotel "Mamma e Papa" in November 2012. We loved the place and we loved the owners. Beautiful garden, very clean rooms, A/C, WiFi, hot water, we could not ask for more. The food at the restaurant was delicious, the coffee was real strong Italian expresso. Both the hotel and the restaurant are great! But what makes this place even better are the owners Enzo and Gianette: they are so nice, kind and helpful, ready to answer all your queestions. And they do it in such a friendly and sincere fashion. We did feel as we were their friends not customers. We highly recommend "Mamma and Papa" and will definitely go back!

Stayed for 3 nights in June, Enzo and Gianette were very helpful and attentive. They wanted to make sure everything was perfect. The bungalow has a/c, hot water and very clean. I just had a major dental surgery and they prepared foods that I can eat like oatmeal, soft boiled eggs, fresh fruit smoothies, soup, soft lasagna, and 3 leche dessert. The food served in the restaurant are all fresh, they make their own pasta. We will definitely go back there. Thank you mamma e papa.

Last August, I stayed at Mamma E. Pappa and the service there is amazing. A very top notch place to stay, and the owners are awesome people too. The food is out of this world. If you ever in Ojochal, I would definitely book my stay here. I loved Mamma E. Pappa.
