What a wonderful spot to relax and get away from the busy-ness of life in USA! This comfortable property was perfect for my sisters and I and our hubbies! We loved the peaceful sound of the ocean throughout the day and the night. The mornings were beautiful and we enjoyed walking along the shore at low tide and picking up sand dollars, shells and beautifully colored rocks. Carmen (the owner) had arranged horseback riding on the beach for us - the horses were brought right to our private beach. We saw monkeys, sloths, macaws and iguanas. Mario (the manager) made tasty breakfast for us every morning and was always on call for anything we needed. He set up beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards each day that we wanted to hang out on the beach. Carmen also arranged a tamale-making class right in the main house there. We were sad when our week ended but we plan to go back!!! Thank you, Carmen and Mario, for a wonderful, relaxing vacation!!!

Great place to stay. My wife and I spent three nights here and loved it! Secluded Beach right outside your front door, restaurants close enough to walk to, close to many other fun activities. Best part was the service we got from Mario, the manager. He always aimed to please and made sure our breakfast was served beach side - thank you. We’ll be back.

This small resort right on the beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy. Mario, the manager, took care of our every need---chaise lounges and hammocks beachside, boogie boards, fresh cooked breakfast every morning, advise on things to do and see. Rooms have full kitchens, which allowed us to cook our own food when we didn't want to leave the property. We highly recommend Dreamy Contentment!

We came down for a quick business trip and my wife booked Dreamy Contentment. We were not disappointed. Our host was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the town and local area. Breakfast was served every morning based on our timeline. We took the complimentary bicycles out and toured the town along with the beach, which this property adjoins. There was a dog name Flaschia (not sure if it’s spelled correct) who never left our side and we taught a few tricks. We would strongly recommend anyone looking for their own oasis in a sleepy town to check out Dreamy Contentment.

My friend and I came here after 3 nights in Uvita for Envision festival. Dreamy Contentment truly lives up to the name. Denis the property manager greeted us along with Minnie (adorable pup) and Kennedy his 7 year old daughter. He helped us with our luggage and showed us the beautiful Casita we would be in. Everything was pristine and it is steps from the beach. I was very excited because they have 3 yoga decks on the beach as well as a couple of cruiser bikes to explore the town with. Breakfast is included and was perfect. Eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee. WiFi is only on the main patio area but it worked out great! That’s where I wanted to hang out anyway. We did the mangrove kayak tour with Alex next door at Rafiki beach club and they let us use the pool for our entire stay which was a major bonus!! Hammocks galore over there as well. Also, sloths and monkeys ! Tons of wildlife I fell in love with Matapalo and I am sure you will too!
