We just can't say enough about this wonderful Lodge and the people who work there. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the property, always willing to let us know what there was to see and do. There's a beautiful hike to a beach nearby and the water was the warmest I've ever been in and I'm from Hawaii! Hiked through a cave, and went swimming in a waterfall that was on the property later in the evening. The food was terrific, full of flavor and beautiful display. The view while dining or relaxing on the veranda was spectacular. Definitely the place to stay if visiting Uvita!
