If I could give this place a 10, I would.
My husband and I came here for a two night getaway after seeing it on Jetsetter.com (formerly sniqueaway). We have been to Costa Rica numerous times and we love the quaintness of the uvita area so we gave it a shot.
We were literally in awe of this place from the second we arrived. The views from every single room, especially the pool, even the pool bathrooms, is to die for. Pictures and words do not do this place justice.
The staff is amazing. So nice and accommodating. The rooms are like no other I have ever seen with the double rainfall shower and the open air ability...heaven. The bed was comfy and the room was very well appointed.
The food was good. The menu is limited but I always found something I liked. It is on the gourmet side, which isn't how I usually prefer meals, but it was good, priced reasonably for where you are, all the way up in the mountains.
You know how you're always curious is the resort website pictures are misleading? Well, in this case, yes, they are misleading because this place is even better than the website or any pictures online. You MUST go. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
And about the road...it's part of the adventure. We had a 4x4 rental and we loved driving up the mountain.
Absolutely no complaints here. Go.
