A few of the reviews I read prior to my booking complained that this place wasn't really a boutique hotel..After staying for 2 nights I would definitely disagree... There are only about 16 villas and we were lucky enough to stay in Villa #1 which we were told is the best villa on the property. Prior to our arrival, the owners had previously stayed for 2 weeks in the same one so I expected it to be luxurious. The concept of the glass encased, linen draped bed peering through the jungle in front of beautiful ocean views is a great one and I really wanted to give it 5 stars. The design is rustic combined with contemporary elements ( wood, stone and glass throughout) however the details made me feel like a refurbishing should be in the near future. It was indeed clean and the bathroom area has a cool contempo flair but I still couldn't give it 5 stars although it definitely has the potential to be a 5 star property. The day time waiter was awesome (Rainier sp?) but his evening replacement wasn't as attentive. It is indeed a really cool place to relax for a few days and with a little more attention to detail in service and design this place could REALLY rock! The management and staff were as friendly as ever and I would definitely recommend it as a relaxing jungle retreat if ever in Uvita!
