This was our last stop on our trip in Costa Rica, this hotel is tucked away on a high road that you need a 4x4 to get up! Good thing our guide had one! But apart from that everything about this place is amazing. You get your own private balcony, ensuite bathroom with second outdoor shower, small kitchenette, air con... More

TikiVilllas exceeded our expectations! Our villa was clean and the air conditioner worked very well. The beds were firm but comfortable after a long day of adventures. Gary (at the front desk) was always a pleasure to talk with and was very accommodating. The welcome drink was excellent and the dinner we had on the property was very good as... More

A tremendous find in Costa Rica. Welcomed by a staff that was interested in making me feel at home and comfortable. Dinner on location was delicious, fresh and completely filling, I ate every bite. Enjoyed beautiful views of the water, refreshing breezes and the jungle noise of animal life celebrating Tiki's minimal impact on where it resides. A destination for... More

Our recent stay was an exceptionally good experience. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. A/C was a nice option but not needed at night...fan was fine. Our rooms had a great view..above the treetops and with a view of the ocean. (Lots of birds in the mornings) We enjoyed the pool with its spectacular view. Service was excellent!!!! We... More

The villas are set in the mountainside, and home to howler monkeys and toucans. We could see/hear them from our balcony. The villas are very private, with a balcony overlooking the jungle and ocean, and an outdoor shower (of course there is also an indoor shower). Loved the outdoor shower! The property has a restaurant that serves fabulous food, and... More

We split our time in the charming town of Uvita by staying in 2 resorts. We stayed in TikiVillas for 3 nights which was the more affordable and superior accommodation and then we stayed in another resort in the area for 2 nights. The rooms at this hotel were average but the setting was to die for. We loved the... More

We are always interested and grateful for feedback from our guests that have stayed with us. Sadly however, recently we have received a number of reviews recently with a low score not reflecting the feedback of the review, but seriously affecting our ranking in Uvita. In all these recent cases we do not find any evidence of the reviewer having... More

Tiki Villas is literally in the rain forest built into the side of a mountain. Although not walking distance to any of the nearby towns and attractions it is a quick ride to many of them, ie. zip line, national parks, surfing, etc. The hotel boasts excellent service, clean rustic accomodations with a/c, a small infinity pool, and a good...

Once again I stayed at TikiVillas, my favorite hotel in my soon to be new home Costa Rica. Over the last few years, it has expanded and upgraded but it hasn't lost the wonderful "Pura Vida" ambience and gentle personal service unique to Ticos.
