Interaction with Guests
We provide extensive personal attention and advice when appropriate.
Hospitality is our reference.
This hotel is on a beautifully arranged property with breathtaking view. The hosts were very friendly and called us a ride whenever we needed even during a crazy festival season. Breakfast was delicious and as fresh as it gets. Ask about their sloth-burglar :)
The Cacatua lodge is really a magical place and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Situated high in the forested hills overlooking Uvita, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Costa Rican jungle, you can really feel that the cacatua is designed with love, possessing an elegant simplicity that complements the stunning views. Peter and Marja were super helpful in orienting us to the area and helping us plan our fun activities. There are a ton of things to do in the nearby area and we were happy to take advantage of the rich environment surrounding Uvita. Afters spending hours being active, it was a delight to come back to the Cacatua lodge to refresh in the pool and relax among the stunning vistas and the beautiful grounds. The descriptions and photos are accurate but really do not do the place justice. Being there felt epic, timeless, and truly romantic.
The owners are cheerful and hardworking people with a passion for nature and the animal world. We want our guests to enjoy equally as we are of our beautiful ecological garden. All of our fruits and vegetables are grown by us with respect for nature without adding non-natural products.
