We had the whole hotel booked for two nights for our wedding, it was amazing. We had our wedding reception in the restaraunt, which was a magical, quaint atmosphere. We did not want an all inclusive wedding experience and my dad had always loved the food and atmosphere here so we had found the perfect wedding reception spot for us. We had decorated that morning and arrived to a beautiful candle lit reception, followed by music and a pool party. We had arranged for a buffet, it was good quality, great tasting food. The pizza is the best ever! The staff are very genuinely nice people. We had many friends and family staying at the hotel, including the cabin in the back. Philipe helped our friends make travel plans to the Osa and he booked a great horseback ride for my girlfriends and i one evening. After the wedding was over and friends and family had left we still returned for suppers as the food is very good and not overpriced for its quality. Uvita is a great place, very safe and friendly. There are many beautiful quiet beaches along the coast and visiting the whale's tail a few afternoons is a must. Thank you Luz de Luna, we will be back!

My family just returned home after two wonderful nights at Luz De Luna. This place looks quite new. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the pool was lovely. The room had tons of natural light and was decorated very nicely, with a comfortable bed, TV and AC. The food at La Fogata was so good we ended up eating every meal there! Try the Pizza, Bruscheta, Salads, Chicken and Ribs. The breakfast included was delicious and plentiful with Gallo Pinto, Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Pancakes, Coffee, Fruit and freshly squeezed Orange Juice. The staff were all very nice and helpful. It is located half way down the unpaved road to Playa Ballena. We visited 3 beaches in 1 day: Dominical (which has huge waves, good for advanced surfers), Hermosa (great waves for beginner/intermediate surfers, unlike the other Playa Hermosa up north) and Uvita (free admission to Playa Ballena Park after 4pm for sunset). We hope to return soon!

Room Tip: Maybe don't get a room next to the terraces upstairs because groups can congregate there and mak...

Amazing attention and rates!, its beautiful and close to the beach, surrounded with nature and really nice people.
They have the most delicious pizza and pasta in town, its a place where you can rest,have fun and create life memories with your friends and family in an atmosphere of peace with nature and just the right price. I fully recommend it :)

When we checked in we had 3 separate rooms and each one smelled horrible of mildew. The air conditioning helped to vent some of it out but 2 of the 3 rooms never really cleared. The rooms are nicely appointed but one of the doors didn't lock and there were no safes in the rooms. We felt safe enough because its pretty isolated. They claim its 1 kilometer to the beach but I'm pretty sure it's closer to 1 mile+. Not very convenient for going to the beach easily and quickly. Beware, the beach is beautiful but it is a national park so you have to pay $6 to enter unless its after 4pm and if it is high tide, there is not much beach to be on. The owners and staff of Luz de Luna are very nice and friendly and the restaurant was fantastic. Lovely balconies on the second floor and a cute and fun pool. I would stay someplace else if I return though.

My boyfriend and I came and stayed for 5 nights. It was great! The place is super clean, the staff and the owners are beyond friendly, and the food at the restaurant was excellent (and I'm a picky eater). It was nice to have the pool and the air conditioning as well. My only complaint would be that the bed was a bit hard, but for the price this place can't be beat.
