Pros: The view is amazing! I loved the food, even the water. The staff is very friendly and really care about making your stay enjoyable. It’s a great place for a honeymoon or have a few days to rest. I loved the experience!
Cons: The only thing that I didn’t like about Oxygen Jungle was the road to get there. They do recommend a 4x4 car;however, they should advised to be there before the sunset since the road to get there, in my opinion, it is not safe.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Yes everything was perfect
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about Oxygen Jungle Villas was AMAZING! Our jungle villa was so clean, comfortable, and private. We loved waking up and hearing the animals (howler monkeys!!) and ordering room service to our villa. We would enjoy coffee and breakfast on our villa balcony every morning to start the day. It was a perfect place for a romantic getaway with my partner. The staff are all so friendly, welcoming, and personable. They know your names from the moment you arrive and will go above and beyond to make your trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The staff had great recommendations for places to eat, activities, and places to go. I especially appreciated how they arranged any activities you were interested in doing during your stay with local groups that they have relationships with-this made excursions very easy. Every activity (zip lining, surf lessons, hikes to waterfalls, visits to different beaches) was OUTSTANDING.
Cons: I loved everything!

Pros: The staff here is just the best. So friendly, they make you want to stay longer. The view is perfect, you see the ocean and Tucans are flying everywhere. But I really liked the sound of the jungle combined with the ocean. The waves and the crickets are so relaxing. The villas are good and beautifully placed in nature.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Localization and the views from all property
Cons: We were surprised at the breakfast, once we had to pick an option. We ask for orange juice and it was not natural. Usually in this kind of properties we expect a buffet. There is no tv, for us it was not a question.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views are stunning and the style of the property is like a Balinese villa, very stylish. Nice infinity pool with views.
Cons: Music playing all day. Beds are very hard and uncomfortable. Staff are great but food isn’t ( what’s served doesn’t match the menu eg never the sauce described such as ailoli or chimchirri, toast is toasted on one side only, poached eggs turn out to be boiled etc).
1.0 Poor
Cons: Extremely overated The villas look great at first sight but furnishing amenities bathroom are of the lowest standards. The cleanlinless is below average and all the property looks un poor condition. The swimming pool is so small that it cannot welcome more thon 3 couples And the noise level of the road below is very high. We had booked two nights 660 dollars and we left after one night !!!! What an horrible expérience
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location and staff. It’s a beautiful little gem nestled in the rain forest. The staff was always so hospitable and ready to make our experience the best. They went out of their way more than once. The breakfast were delicious and the one dinner was also very good. We would definitely stay here again..
Cons: Our cabins in the jungle was wonderful except the bed was a bit too firm for us. However, the view and spaciousness made up for that issue.

7.5 Good
Pros: The host was just lovely and was very attentive to our needs. She even brought in a coffee pod machine as we are those type of travelers that like to make our own coffee in the morning.
Cons: The room was essentially a concrete box and because there was a bunk bed squished into it against the window we didn’t feel like we could open the window. Also if we opened the window we would have no privacy. So the only way to cool down the room was the air conditioner and we don’t sleep well in an air conditioned environment. It was too stuffy to sleep properly.
6.3 Good
Pros: Secure parking
Cons: Foul odour in room. Poor lighting.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The value compared with the price was great. Lucy is a great host and her service was awesome, she helps us with everything she could. The towels are terrific: they had great quality and were pretty soft, I have been in more expensive hotels and they had cheaper towels.
Cons: it would be a good idea to leave a black tape or something similar to because the AC light that indicates the temperature was too high at night and there wasn't a way to shut it off you can leave a black tape to paste over the AC number light would be great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Bedrooms and bathroom are very clean and comfortable . Lovely host. We didn't have breakfast so can't review it. Location is good, walking distance to restaurants and shops. Bit further for beaches, better if you have a car as the streets are dark, and theres a hill.
7.9 Good
Pros: The hostess, Lucy, is an exceptionally friendly and outgoing person. She definitely made my stay an excellent one. She is also a great cook if you choose to eat there.
Cons: The rooms are very basic but in line with what you pay for them.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The proprietor Lucy could not have been more hospitable, helpful, thoughtful and accommodating. I arrived 4 hrs before checkin and she locked up my things while I explored Uvita and had them in my room when I returned. She booked a whale watching tour and called me multiple taxis. She also was instrumental in helping me plan the next leg of my journey since I was confused and anxious about where to go and how to get there. The mattress is great if you prefer hard which I do. The AC is powerful! Lucy is a tremendous cook and has a well-deserved reputation for her breakfasts and dinners. There are also some wonderful restaurants close by namely Los Laureles and Mosaic Wine Bar!
Cons: The only drawback is that you have to walk up a steep hill IF you are coming the wrong way. If you come from the other access it’s a much easier slope.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Rooms are basic, very clean, comfortable. The hidden gem is the host Lucy and her cooking. Nothing is too much trouble, and you can’t get better food in Uvita.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very nice host and nice facilities. I can only recommend the traditionel breakfest
Cons: Quite far from the beach. Little over 4km in fact. But still a good choice.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The best thing about Big Bamboo is Lucy, the hostess. There is nothing she wouldn’t do to make us happy. She is also the most amazing cook. We only had one dinner there but it’s the best meal we’ve had during our stay in Costa Rica so far(10 days). We enjoyed her company so much.
Cons: There were a lot of dogs barking especially our first night but that’s not the fault of the host.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the breakfasts and dinners! The pool was a lovely dip end of day. The room was clean and comfortable. We’d recommend this hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Rancho Pacifico is a stunning property located on 26 acres in the rain forest overlooking the incredible Whale’s Tail in Uvita. It was beautiful in the photos I saw before I booked this property but in person it was even better. There are many different trees, birds, butterflies, flowers and other wildlife located right outside of your room. We stayed in the Hermosa Suite and it was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and we had turn down service twice daily. Our room had floor to ceiling glass in the bedroom and bathroom so we had amazing views of the beach and rain forest. On two different occasions we were able to watch capuchin monkeys swing from the trees in front of our room. The staff at RP is exceptional. They make you feel so welcomed from the minute you arrive. They all knew our names as soon as we got there and they made us feel like family. The food at RP is hands down the best food we have ever eaten. We looked forward to dinner at RP every night because the 4 or 5 course meal was always perfectly prepared. My husband and I do not usually enjoy fish but we couldn’t get enough of the fresh seafood that was prepared for us there. They use a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in their cooking and they cook a variety of different food types from Costa Rican to Peruvian to Caribbean to Asian and so much more. The breakfast always started with a freshly squeezed juice and muffin or bread and then there were several delicious main course options to choose from. My personal favorite was the banana bread French toast with cinnamon syrup. The bartender, Vianney, is a master of cocktails and mixed drinks. We often just asked him to create whatever he wanted for us and we were never disappointed! Andrey and Maria were our servers and they were so friendly and made our dining experience always enjoyable. Steven and Salome helped coordinate our daily excursions and activities.
Cons: We loved everything about the property and really have nothing negative to say about it. I would highly recommend this property for your next romantic getaway!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hosts in a sublime location. And great food.
Cons: The road up is quite steep. Beware of renting an underpowered car. Wine list a bit thin.
