Description: Rather you come for a meal or to stay for a few days at Rancho Remo, you can enjoy the beautiful coastline views from the entire property. Seated in our open air dining area you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or appetizers with a cold beer or a bottle of wine while you enjoy the ocean`s view. Our specialities in Italian food are fresh fish, meat and obviusly homemade pasta and bread. You'll enjoy the watching tropical birds, butterflies, monkeys, poison dart frogs, and other animals. From the hilltop during the local whale watching season (july through november) you can spot whales. All the area with ocean view. You are going to feel the contact with nature while listening the birds, monkeys, and ocean`s sounds.

Luca and Francesca have mastered the art of gracious and inviting hospitality. Their warm presence and unending energy are combined with a dream-like environment. High up a dirt road with a killer view, we enjoyed a brief respite in their picturesque hotel. Our ocean view was an unhindered, direct view out, like the largest widescreen best picture ever! The sound of the waves put us to bed at night. It was pretty much perfect.

Meanwhile the restaurant had excellent food and while being true to their Italian origin, was also superbly prepared using local, fresh ingredients. The tuna steak was cooked perfectly.

Thank you so much for a fine day in paradise. We wish it had been many more!

Our Airbnb host recommended this little gem, and we couldn’t have been more pleased! New owners Luca and Francesca are delightful hosts, and the food is matched only by the splendid view!

Be sure to come before sunset, so you can enjoy the 180 degree view of Playa Hermosa, and the Whale’s Tail tombolo at Playa Uvita (if at low tide). Quite stunning. Then watch the sun set while enjoying an appetizer and wine, beer or another cocktail from your table.

The food was delicious! We had the Bruschetta to start, then the freshly made spinach/ricotta ravioli, then filet mignon, and veal. All absolutely wonderful!

We wish Luca and Francesca all the best with their new venture. We did not stay at Ranchos Remo, but they have, I believe 8 Cabinas.

Super kind staff with the loveliest vibes! Had such a nice breakfast there twice. Coffee and food was delicious with a spectacular view of the ocean. Also very clean and tidy for an outdoor space. Romantic for couples yet fun enough for a good family time. Looking forward going back already! Grazie mille!

Decided to locate Gusto and check out the view. Missed the turnoff the first time and then remembered it was associated with San Remos Lodge. What a find! Unbelievable view and warm welcome from Francesca, Rita, and Luca. Enjoyed a glass of wine for sunset and will be back for dinner.

The Uvita dining scene is rivaling that of Ojochal. Luca, Francesca, and Rita are more than doing their share to bring great experiences with this lovely patio restaurant. Sunset view beyond compare. My wife and I shared the pesto pasta and peppered filet. Wow! We are excited for our next visit.
