Jungle villa
Our stay at the villas was an incredible experience. The staff always went above and beyond. I ultimately felt like a queen the whole 3 days we were there. Yes this is a pricier option compared to some but I would 100% pay the price again. The villas themselves were always so clean and stocked up when we would return from our daily activities. We chose a jungle villas instead of an ocean villa and I’m so glad we did. One morning (at 5am) we were woken up my a howler monkey which was a really cool experience.

The Villa we stayed in was spectacular. The outside entrance had a couch that overlooked the ocean and the sunset. It also has a screened in enclosure that you could leave open or close around the couch. The bed was a four post canopy bed, also having a screened enclosure that you could close off. A very romantic setting if that’s what you’re looking for. They were only 12 Villas total on the property so that limits the number of people on the property, which I prefer over a large hotel with countless people. I really enjoyed the staff (Steven/Jose/Roy/Daniela/ Brian) they introduced themselves and got to know us the first day. They were very accommodating and personable during our stay, catering to our every need. The food available at the restaurant was definitely above average, and very reasonable prices for all of the meals. We really enjoyed the pool area as well, because it’s sized so the guests get to see and meet each other daily. The Wi-Fi worked extremely well on the entire resort, but if you’re looking for a TV there are none in the room. Which was OK with us. Uvita is about 10 minutes away, it’s a very small town and has a few places to eat and see like a whale watching tour. Overall, we really enjoyed it, definitely a small setting in the middle of nowhere and very relaxing. But if you want A+ service this is the place to visit.

To much and to loud music playing all the time. Not appropriate for an eco lodge.

Excellent service
Being my first time to Costa Rica, I was surprised at the condition of the road to the resort. Disregarding that, the staff were all very friendly and accommodating to our questions and requests. The villas are unique and very peaceful (aside from the interesting jungle sounds that peak in the early morning). The two waterfalls on the property are well worth the short hike to see them.

This place is awesome! Luxury at its finest in the jungle! Perfect for a couples get away. The pool and view is everything! The staff is awesome! Great customer service. worth every penny! We went during raining season(September) and we loved it! Glass villas but there are curtains for privacy. You need a car 4X4 car to drive up there. We felt really safe! 10/10
