Cabinas los Laureles

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 January 2011

We loved our stay in Uvita, and this cabinas was the perfect place to explore it. The rooms were very clean and nice, the A/C was much appreciated, and the value was very good (we picked the most affordable room at $33US/night). There was a great hammock right outside our door; such a peaceful, wonderful property from which we saw toucans and sloths nearby! Victor the manager was very knowledgeable and helpful, almost always available and frequently consulted by guests. He had recommendations for the local eateries, but his 1st choice soon became our favorite haunt ($1.50 cervezas!). He also set up the zip-lining adventure tour in Cortes -- favorite activity for the trip. Highly recommend (and would stay again if we go back to CR!) and wish we had had time to do the waterfall hike nearby!

This is a delightful spot. Near the waterfalls up the road, Bahia Ballena down the road, an excellent "soda", La Canalla, also down the road, and a charming jungle trail right on the property. It's a gorgeous location, excellent value and Victor (and his father, also Victor, and mother, Lidia) were unbelievable helpful. I'd come back in a heartbeat. And, it's a fabulous country.

Hotel owners were very helpful in organizing our trip to Corcovado. Very comfortable and spacious rooms and clean. Private wood, the owner took us for a short walk describing flora and fauna.
Absolutely recommended.

We spent 3 nights in the cabinas Los Laureles in November 2010. This is such a beautiful place! If it hadn't been the end of our holiday we would have stayed longer. We had a very spacious cabina with 2 bedrooms and a very nice bathroom. The room was very clean and comfortable. The family who runs the business is VERY FRIENDLY and HELPFUL. If you ask Victor in which restaurant you can find a specific dish he starts calling the restaurants around to make sure they offer what you wish.
When you have Victor on your side you can be sure that you will see all kinds of animals, he finds everything!
We really enjoyed our stay. If we come back to Costa Rica we will surely come to the cabina Los Laureles again!

If you are looking for a piece of tranquil paradise in a beautiful and easily accessible part of Costa Rica, look no further - Uvita and surrounds have it all. The Cabinas los Laureles provide quiet, comfortable and private accommodation in a rainforest not far from beaches, waterfalls and restaurants. We had a coati in the tree outside our cabin in the early morning, and many wonderful birds sited. The hosts are very professional and hospitable, will provide lots of information about where to go and what to do, with no pressure, and you will be able to leave your belongings in a secure location. Highest recommendation.

We stayed at the Cabinas los Laureles three nights in April, and we were impressed by the service and hospitality. In fact, we think Victor must be the personification of the word service minded. We got valuable information about hikes and activities in the area, and he even lent us a flash light because ours didn't work. The grounds are beautiful, with a variety of different trees and plants. Some of the cabins are located in the forest, while others are located close to the reception. They have cabins to fit different budgets, some fairly basic and others quite luxurious. The ratings in this review are for the luxury cabins. It's a bit far to walk to the beach, but it wasn't a problem for us while we were there, since we were picked up at the cabins when we were participating in activities. We were also told that they offer a shuttle service to the beach in the mornings. Oh, and there is a beautiful waterfall where you can swim within walking distance from the cabins.

I was traveling with friends through Costa Rica, and we ended up at Cabinas Los Laureles in Uvita. What a charming place! Tucked away in the woods, it's a bit surreal to be surrounded by amazing trees and wildlife. It's a unique setting, and I loved how quiet and private it was. Our cabin was basic and clean, and the AC was a nice relief from the scorching heat outside. Victor Hugo went out of his way to make our group feel welcome and often accompanied us on our journeys to go hiking and snorkeling. It was great to have an insider's suggestions on the best way to spend our time, and without his help I don't think we would have loved Uvita as much as we did! I would definitely recommend Los Laureles to travelers passing through Uvita. Victor Hugo is the best! :)
