Quiet, affordable, and clean...all you can need!
Hotel Luz de Luna is a really small, quaint hotel on a side street in Uvita. It is clean, but simple. Good room, secure, and staffed by VERY nice people. The restaurant next door is also ran by the hotel owners and has fantastic food. Not really walkable to the beach, but a short drive on a quiet, untraveled road and you're there. The bed is not very comfortable, unless you are into REALLY firm mattresses. The mattress is fine, but it sits on a concrete block base, which hardens the mattress a little too much. But there is free WiFi and breakfast and it is not expensive at all. I cannot emphasize how accommodating and nice the staff is. Anything you need, including a late check in, and it was taken care of. I would definitely stay there again.

OK Lodgings in a Great Place
This is a nondescript motel with a god restaurant in a great area. The bed wasn't very comfortable and the WiFi barely worked. Neither did the light outside our room. On the plus side, it had a god bathroom and the restaurant is a deservedly popular and lively place. Overall it seemed a bit overpriced for what we got, but Uvita is great with lovely beaches and access to all that this fantastic part of Costa Rica offers. Try to do better than this motel, but if you can't stay here and enjoy the Costa de Ballena.

Filipe, the owner, was very nice and is in the process of improving the property. He has a ways to go. The rooms are small, with limited amenities, but very clean. No coffee maker (but breakfast is included), no seating in the room other than the bed (but no room for chairs anyway). The AC was great, which is nice in Uvita at this time of year. Filipe gave us detailed information on things to do in the area. We are pulling for him to make this place a big success. One other thing, the food at the attached restaurant is really good, especially the pizza.

The hotel is difficult to find using GPS (Garmin) which does not think it exists and there are no signs along the road to direct you. Even the locals walking along the unpaved road nearby did not know it existed. Management agreed they need signs. The service we got was great, and the food was the best we ate in our two week stay traveling around Costa Rica. Their restaurant, Fogata, was well known to the locals who came as couples and families to especially enjoy their pizzas, spit roasted chicken, and other great offerings including the best corvina and mussels we have ever eaten in our travels! The room was very small but the bed, AC, and bathroom were good, and there is only space for a couple of cars to park in their lot and the rest must park on the dirt road. We would stay here again or recommend it to friends. A special person was Rosanna, "Roxy," who served our food and helped us with whatever we needed.

Great Place to Stay
Room was in terrific shape. The hotel and restaurant staff was so nice and friendly. I wish I could have stayed longer!

Simple beach motel with amazing restaurant
This hotel was more like an American motel, very basic but clean with tiny rooms and particularly comfortable beds. Fit our needs for a one night stay just to sleep, as it was close to the beach and had a (fabulous) pizza restaurant attached to it. Breakfast at the restaurant (included in our reservation) was the best we had on our entire trip.
