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.

Thank you for your comments and of course we’d like to address your concerns. Our neighborhood: we chose this neighborhood for the experience of being in a Tico neighborhood and have had such great experiences with our area. As all our guests enjoy the ambience of the area and how perfect it is with regards to location. A 5 minute walk to a beach which is a national park with showcasing the Famous Whales Tail. Within a 5 minute or less drive we have a selection of over 20 restaurants of various types. Local food to everything from pizza to sushi and beyond. There are no restaurants or hotels on the beach since it is preserved as the National Park in Ballena Bahia. Fortunately our road was being worked on for improvement to the area. The road is being paved and the day before your arrival they started working on it which we just found out that day. Another improvement to our area. We’re sorry you had an issue with the lights shining in your cabina. We wish something was said as we could have reset the timers to go off earlier so you would not have any light shining through. It was not brought to our attention. We’re sorry that it was not as quiet as you anticipated. We did notice that you were gone most of the two days you stayed, and in the evening we always try to monitor the nose since we live in the property and we don’t want our guests to be disturbed. We’ve not had any issues with our guests making comments about noise. Seeing that Uvita may not be your kind of destination, everyone who does stay here and comes to Uvita have had great things to say and the activities are abundant. Seeing The spectacular Whales Tail, is worth the visit just for that. Great snorkeling, hiking, whale watching, waterfalls, kayaking, world class surfing, tours to Corcovado and Cano Island are among some of the many things to do in Uvita. With regards to value, we seem to be one of the nicer places to stay in and around the beach and our pricing has been stated by our booking sites that we are in line with other properties in our area. We are sorry that your experience was nothing sort of perfect. We asked on several occasions if everything was okay and if anything was needed. The reply was we had a great place, beautiful and you both seemed very happy when asked. Thank you again and wish you always safe travels. Judy & Scott

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!
