Hotel's Favourite
We stayed 5 nights at the enchanting Villa Alturas. There were fantastic views of the rain forest and the ocean from everywhere on the resort. The view from the pool is even better than their ad. We spotted toucans and capuchin monkeys and heard the howler monkeys from the resort. Our villa was well stocked and very comfortable. It was a wonderful base for our many day adventures. Dayanna, the lovely manager, helped us plan a lot of what we enjoyed and needed to do, like the COVID test to return home. Danly gave great service and perfect ideas for some outings. Special thanks to both of them. It was a fabulous vacation!

Beautiful spot overlooking the South Pacific coastline. It's worth a visit just for the view alone. But the food is quite ordinary and the Wi-Fi is very slow. We are not staying at the hotel but it looks like a wonderful place to stay I'm just reviewing the restaurant.

We visited Uvita’s area for 4 days. This is our first stay at this gorgeous place. The views are stunning!!! The place is spotless clean. The service was wonderful, especially Nicky and Ariel who were so helpful and pleasant. Atmosphere is just chill. The pool is not too big but overlooking the Marino Ballena national park and coast. Open all day! The common areas are very inviting and thoughtfully designed. Rooms are basic. Our room was very spacious and had beautiful views of the ocean and sunset! Each room has a different location. There is a full kitchen, and a dining table indoor and outside on a huge balcony with hammock and chairs. We had two bedrooms which was wonderful for a family. The restaurant was OK with limited menu. Breakfast is basic but good quality and healthy, but limited in choice, and yet different fresh fruit juice every day. Night drinks are very nice. Definitely will come again! Mucho gracias
