Wonderful owners and such a beautiful property!! Within walking distance to the store, bakery, sodas, etc, and just a short drive to the beaches. The owners really make this place--so kind and generous. A great value for the price as you fall asleep to the sounds, feeling like you're in the middle of the jungle with no one for miles, even if they're just next door! Only recommendations would be a double mattress change in our particular room and a coffee maker! The latter can be remedied with a quick walk down the street, but the former will need to be addressed pretty quickly...although the back kinks eventually worked themselves out;) Thank you to Los Laureles for a wonderful beginning to our trip! They went above and beyond...

Room tip: The cabinas are worth the (very little) extra $$!!

Out of the way Uvita is worth the trek and Los Laureles is a fun place to stay. The owner was happy to drop us off at a beach, as we were carless. Breakfast of fruit or gallo pinto is served at the open air tables with strong coffee. Our large room was comfortable, but simple. There's a private 'forest' to hike and lots of fruit waiting to fall off the trees - try picking some starfruit for a quick snack!

This hotel had a great vibe. Friendly service and they were able to accommodate our short-term needs. Some rooms don't have a fridge so ask in advance. The rooms were average, but good for the price. A great place to stay if you're traveling to the coast near Uvita.

Room tip: After 11 they close the front gates

A locally owned guest house, with cabinas both a couple of hundred yards up a slope from the main house, and close to the entrance. Cabins are simple but adequate - in the forest cabinas you can sit on your terrace and watch the birds after spending a day at the beach (two miles away and US$6 entrance fee to the National Park), at swimming pools at the waterfalls, or on a wildlife or kayaking tour with Victor (the son of the owners) who can organise just about any tour you may fancy.

the rooms are neat and clean, we felt very welcome. the owners are extremely friendly and helpful with anything and they have a wonderful private forest in the back of the garden. we made a tour with the son of the owners to the national parc marino ballena and had a great time with him touring the mangroves in a kayak, snorkeling and even trying to surf with the kayak. wifi is available, some shops and restaurants are within walking distance though it is advisable to have a car. definitely a place to come back to!
