We traveled recently, the place is not as nice as advertised. Not near the Beach. We felt not very welcome and room was not as clean as expected. It is just a basic place, basic room with a bed and a very small Pool. Need to improve their safety and hygiene standars. Gardens ok. Not bad, but we were not happy for what we paid.
This is located down a dirt road in what felt like "suburbia Uvita" with dogs barking, children noises, roadworks...not very peaceful!! It's five hundred metres from a long white sandy beach where there are a few basic restaurants.
There are three units in a row adjacent to the owners accommodation on the property. These are set in a small tropical garden with a pool and communal kitchen and pretty dining / seating area.
The unit was quite small and dark but with very comfy bed, air-conditioning, bathroom with good shower and small kitchenette which consisted of a microwave, jug, tea and coffee, refrigerator, sink, plates and cutlery. The unit was nicely furnished and opened to a small terrace with outdoor furniture.
Unfortunately the curtains were see through...thus the exterior lights from the pool and garden couldn't be shut out for sleeping. Also the place wasn't quiet even inside with the doors and windows shut if someone was talking etc, as it was such a small property and the only privacy was inside the room.
The owners were ex USA...and were pleasant and helpful.
I can't think why you would want to come to Uvita, however if you do you're probably better to stay in Dominical or one of the resorts on the hillside of the highway.
Overall this was pleasant enough but I think it is overpriced for what it is and there are better options.
Cabinas D'Val was fantastic! Scott was a wonderful host and helped us book incredible trips to Corcovado National Park and Cano Island. The location is peaceful (tucked away in a fairly residential area), but very close to the beach and lots of restaurants and activities in Uvita. There's a nice pool to relax in, as well as a shared kitchen and grill. The room was very comfortable and had good ventilation and AC for when you need to cool off. We loved being able to walk around Uvita and then come back to such a pleasant place.
This property has three small, separate bungalows in a beautifully landscaped gated property. There was a nice pool, a small kitchen in the unit and a large outdoor communal kitchen available for guests to use. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and even coffee was provided. The owners really love the community of Uvita and are excited to share their favorite spots with you. They really went out of their way to answer questions and make themselves available to their guests without being intrusive. The property is a five minute walk to a very beautiful, palm lined beach. One early morning while walking on the beach we came upon numerous Scarlet Macaw's and saw them later again from the hotel. It was only a one hour drive to the Sierrpe where we went on a 3.5 hour boat trip through the mangroves, this was a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We really enjoyed our time here and highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the Uvita area.
My first time to Uvita, Costa Rica! What a paradise at Cabinas D'Val! Beyond the electric entrance gate is a beautiful sanctuary full of tropical plants, beautiful blooming flowers and the serene surroundings you could only dream of. Past the private parking, before you enter your own luxury haven, you can rest under a tin roof open air Rancho fully equipped with a refrigerator, sink, stove top and open grill or just find peace and relaxation in the hammock. Nestled in the middle of this beautiful oasis is a crystal clear pool sure to invigorate you after a day out. Our private (air conditioned) luxury haven was beautifully decorated with all the amenities you would find in a 5 star hotel. The open air shower was amazing and the room and bathroom were immaculately cleaned upon our arrival! Aside from being the most beautiful place I have ever stayed, we were graciously greeted by the owners, Scott and Judy! They were beyond accommodating - booking our excursions, our in-room spa treatments, and recommending the most delicious and beautiful places to dine!! They were so amazing and without their expertise and knowledge of the area, we would surely have been lost!! In this review, I cannot fully describe this beautiful place and the kind and amazing owners who made our stay perfect. You truly have to experience this paradise to understand the beauty beyond the electric gate!!!
We will be back!
