Accomodations for 17 near Punta Uva

Hi Everyone,

I've scoured the forums, but still need help. We're a group of 17 (8 adults & 9 kids, ages 8-14) looking for a good place to stay on Punta Uva beach. Two adjacent houses would be perfect. Or a B&B/lodge with enough room for all of us. I can't seem to find anyplace quite large enough -- we need a minimum of 6 bedrooms. We'd like to pay 100-150/night per family. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Temple

Cocles is a little further north, but Caribe Town may lend itself to what you're looking for. They have several houses next door for rent that include access to the Caribe Town grounds, pool, wifi etc.

Good Luck!

What about Playa Chequita? The Villas Del Caribe, one the few hotels/lodges directly on the beach, has small villa stye rooms, with fully stocked kitchen, patios with a BBQ and outdoor shower, and sleeping is on second floor wth hammocks on balconies and they can put in bunk beds for the little ones. They have a cafe/meals for breakfast, and nice beach just a few steps south past the Sloth Club. Punta Uva is pretty small. its kind of school, they redecorated in 2009. You can walk the coastal trail into Playa Cocles.

There is Punta Uva Cabinas, they have 3 cabins I think all with double beds, share kitchen, directly on the ocean, great beach.

It is 6 bedrooms temple44 is looking for so cabinas punta uva and Pachamama won't do. Another option, close to Punta uva is Shawanda.

Four families with a total of 9 kids and you only need 6 bedrooms? I think this will be difficult to do in Punta Uva and particularly on your budget as most accommodations in this area are designed for much smaller groups.

Casa Viva is $190/nite for a 2 bedroom house sleeping 4. Shawandha has rooms for $125/nite double or $150/nite triple occupancy.

Congo Bongo looks like your best bet if they have availability. You could rent 3 houses to accommodate all 19 at a cost of $755/nite, but that's more than your budget and the big issue will be availability for your dates. Congo Bongo houses are located in Manzanillo, not Punta Uva but there is a beautiful swimmable beach in Manzanillo as well. See more at http://www.congo-bongo.com/

You can probably negotiate good deals in low season but it may be difficult to find that many beds in 1 spot during high season.

You could contact Green Management: http://www.greencr.com/green/ but I am afraid they will not have either one house big enough or two adjacent houses. We still don't know for when it would be but Casa Viva and Congo Bongo could work like crfan says if they have still space. Another option but in Cocles is Costa de Papito.
