Whether you just want to enjoy a relaxing stay and tan on the beach or patio, or venture into the forest and skinny dip in waterfalls, Casa Uvita provides it all. Michele and the staff or very friendly and helpful. Best place to stay in all of Costa Rica!

Management response:

Oh my! That's quite a compliment! Congratulations to you two, and thanks for choosing Casa Uvita to spend your honeymoon!

Casa Uvita is amazing! It was the perfect spot for a family/friends vacation. The house was able to accommodate our large group for a special birthday vacation. The open air kitchen was stunning and the views from the upstairs balcony were amazing. We really enjoyed waking up with the howler monkeys every morning and sipping coffee and watching the wildlife...

Management response:

Thank you for your thorough review! As you mentioned, Uvita is a great destination for active travelers who want to be close to nature. Your family and friends were perfectly suited and took advantage of all that the Uvita area has to offer. We look forward to future visits!

My husband and I, with our two kids (17 & 20) were part of a large entourage that descended on Casa Uvita In mid June. We loved the house, the jungle noises that start at 5:00 am, which was fine because it gets dark early and we were so tired from adventuring that we were in bed by 9:00 pm...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review! You all were the largest group we have ever hosted at Casa Uvita (ten). Thanks for being such great guests and being so eco-minded during your stay. We hope to see you back again in the near future!
