This is a lovely hotel, just north of Uvita town and quite near the beach, with beautiful grounds immaculately kept. The hotel restaurant is entirely gluten free and its open sides provide beautiful views of the lush forest and the Pacific Ocean. I also received a particularly excellent facial from Yolanda in their spa. The air conditioning was appreciated in this humid part of Costa Rica.

We live here locally and this is one of our favorite restaurants. Everything on the menu is gluten free and delicious. The omelets are delicious and we also had the pancake dish which is very nice. We had fresh fruit to top it off and some of their wonderful coffee.

This was our fifth stay at Cuna over the past number of years. We come to this part of Costa Rica, as we are currently developing our retirement property. One could ask why not try other hotels in the area, and this would be an excellent question. However, when you find a place that's got a great location for what we need, fantastic atmosphere, and complimented with an incredibly friendly staff who keep the property immaculate, why would anyone want to change that. To quote; "If it's not broken, don't break it." We are returning to Cuna again towards the end of April and can't wait.
