After a long week travelling around Costa Rica, we ended up in this oasis of a hotel. There are only 5 bungalows which means you get a very personal service from the wonderful staff with Pablo in particular a delight. In each room is a huge bed and lovely balcony where you can sit and watch the world go by for hours on end. Each room has a view of the sea as well as the ability to see lots of animals with toucans making a regular appearance during our visit.

At the hotel is a very nice pool but for those who want a beach, a short 15 minute walk will get you there and it's more than worth it with its long, endless coast and very few people.

By anyone's standard this is a nice hotel but it's the small things that make the biggest difference - the free coffee machine (and coffee) in the room, the staff knowing you by name, bringing you a cold glass of water as you sit by the pool, the welcome cocktail when you arrive. The list is endless.

Please don't make the mistake of going to the ruined tourist trap that is Manuel Antonio and go another 30 mins down the coast to this hotel for a far better experience.

Loved Tiki Villas--we spent four nights there (just returned) and can't wait to go back. Pablo and Gary, on the staff, were extremely helpful and accomodating and good humored. We loved hanging out on our terrace and slept with the doors open which was lovely. Toucans and lots of other birds (and other wild life) right outside. A vehicle (4-wheel drive) is a must to get around to the beaches, the forest, etc. Relaxing atmosphere and mesmerizing views!

We stayed at the tiki villas for two nights and were continually impressed with the service, the atmosphere, and the rooms. We spent a lot of time on the porch looking at the rainforest right outside our room and enjoying the colorful birds and stunning ocean view. I would highly recommend the villas.

We stayed at TikiVillas for 2 nights. Our room was clean, had a beautiful view of the ocean and wonderful doors that opened to the deck. The pool while not large is an infinity pool with a view of the ocean and the jungle. It was the perfect temperature and a great way to unwind and cool off in the afternoon.

The first night we went out for dinner but after driving back in the dark on the windy and unfamilar road, we decided to have dinner at the hotel the next evening. We were glad we did. The meal was delicious, the service perfect and the setting very relaxing and romantic.

We would stay here again if ever in Uvita.

We had breakfast at the hotel each morning and again the food was great as was the service. The staff really know how to take care of the guests without being invasive.
