My partner and I stayed at Eden Tica Lodge for four nights during a tour of Costa Rica. We wanted to visit the Uvita area because of Corcovado National Park, SCUBA diving at cano island and Bahia Bellena bay (with the whale tail-shaped beach and the migrating humback whales).

Our hosts, Luis and Jessica were extremely welcoming and very helpful throughout our stay. The accommodation itself is two very modern bungalows set next to their home. The location is set away from the principle road up a hill-trail, we love walking/hiking so we welcomed the up-hill walk everyday, it took us about 20 minutes to reach the principles roach going down (about 40 minutes casually going back up). If you dont like walking or prefer not to walk up hills then you should consider hiring a car, or looking at accommodation nearer the principle road or more centrally in Uvita.

Our bungalow was clean and facilities were comfortable, including a very comfortable large bed, a kitchenette with a double hob and microwave and coffee machine, and a spacious bathroom area.

The real highlights of this accommodation are its setting within the hills, which means you are situated right in the heart of so much beautiful nature, meanwhile Luis and Jessica's design and maintenance of their surrounding gardens/pool area mean that you get the most of all the views. We saw monkeys playing in nearby trees and a tucan perched on the tree above us! The other highlight was the lovely breakfast Luis brought us each morning which consisted of fresh fruit (delicious!) tea/coffee/orange juice, toast with ham and preserves.

Above all Luis and Jessica were very accommodating to help us with our requests and our itinerary, for example we had an early morning excursion one day, so Luis packed our breakfast for us the night before. The only reason I cannot awarded this accommodation 5 stars was because a couple of very minor things around the bungalow were not fully up to the host's own high standards (I expect because we visited during their low season) for example one of the electric hobs was not functioning.

Jessica and Luis live with two gorgeous, extremely well-behaved dogs, who we were smitten with by the time we left. They would both sit on our porch in the evening enjoying receiving some fuss and cuddles. If you have allergies or prefer not to interact with dogs then I recommend you email the hosts before you arrive because they will keep them in the main house.

The bungalows at this place were lovely and spacious, and the views of the rainforest are incomparable. The only things that I would change are to have stronger wi-fi connection in the bungalows and grounds, and to install air conditioning into the bungalows. If you're not used to the humidity, the first night will be very uncomfortable and you'll find it difficult to sleep.
That being said, it was a lovely place to stay and Jessica and her husband were great hosts.

Great location, with just a few bungalows and a nice infinity pool, which makes the stay nice and peaceful and quiet. Friendly and helpful service, with all the info about the tides to make your visit to the park a memorable experience. Must have a car to access the property!

Lovely place....this is how heaven must look like!!! Jessica is really a lovely host. She makes the most beautiful fruit breakfast. The place is great. Good bed, really hot shower, little kitchen and a marvelous pool!!! There are a lot of trips to make from this location also. A waterfall just around the corner. And the 4-wheel drive you will need this to reach there house.
