My husband, 2 1/2 yo daughter and I stayed in the double bungalow with kitchen for 4 nights in December 2010. We had a great time! Some reviewers mentioned the dampness, amenities and the service... My impression is that the place is located in the rainforest/jungle... If you want things to be dry, stay somewhere with air-conditioning. There is no...

Visited Pachamama in October after reading the glowing reviews on this site. Intially booked for 3 nights, but had to negotiate a price to cancel our booking on the third night as this place was wrecking our holiday.

We are in our early to late 30s and wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. We visited Punta Uva and stayed at Pachamama over Thanksgiving break and rented the one bedroom, while our friends rented the Casita. After 7 days / nights of beach, bike riding, exploring, nature, and peace and quiet, I...

We stayed here for a week and would like to strongly advise folks NOT to stay here. If you decide to stay here despite reading the review, at the very least, get a room with a kitchen.

My husband and I had the casita for a week and it was definitely not enough - can't wait to go back!

My wife, mother-in-law and I stayed at Pachamama on the southern Carribean coast of Costa Rica the first week of November, 2010.

My boyfriend and I stayed several nights in the casita, and sadly we checked out early and were so glad to leave. I had fairly high expectations from all the glowing Tripadvisor reviews, but what I read here and what I found at Pachamama were very different things. If you decide to come here, lower your expectations for service and...

Our most relaxing vacation ever, no plans, just the easy life. Bill and Cathy are so nice, and give better advice than the travel sites.
