“Great views, helpful staff and hosts”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

My wife and I chose to make this our third stop on our honeymoon and after plugging in the GPS and asking the front desk at the previous hotel to confirm directions, we set off on our way. However, our GPS and directions didn't indicate that Highway 27 was flowing in one direction this day (west to east towards San Jose) and in the process of receiving several sets of directions from locals, became lost and emailed Thomas (owner) for help. He quickly responded, calling us and putting us in contact with Luis (aka roadadvisor) who helped guide us to our destination. It really helped turn a stressful situation around.

We arrived late the first night due to the driving issues, but fell asleep to the sounds of howler monkeys and were greeted the following morning to the sounds of howler monkeys and toucans. The view was amazing from our room and the daily breakfast was good.

Unfortunately I fell ill during our stay and we decided to cut our stay here short in an attempt to get closer to San Jose to try to get earlier flight home. Thomas and Cindy were very accomodating. They were also incredibly helpful prior to our arrival, recommending places to visit and tours to book.

Would recommend Tikivillas to those looking for some seclusion and want peace and quiet.

Who could ask for anything more? These beautiful villas are like living in a Frank Lloyd Wright house only the water is below you adjacent to a pristine beach. Wildlife is at your every turn. Breakfast is scrumptious...as are the cocktails (while relaxing in the infinity pool). Owner hosts, Thomas and Cindy and their staff set the standards high. What wonderful people and what a perfect experience. Absolute definition of la pura vida! Thank you Thomas and Cindy.

Room Tip: Lay back...this is paradise.

We stayed for 3 nights at TikiVillas. It was so fun to have our own bungalow in the jungle overlooking the ocean. The pool here is amazing as are the views from it. The owners Tom and Cindy were both very helpful. Irina, a new staff person, was excellent and extremely sweet as well. We felt very secluded. The outdoor shower was fun as well! You do need a 4x4 vehicle to access this place, and it is about a 5-10 minute drive to Uvita. You can walk down to the beach (abuot a 5-10 minute walk) though. Also, this hotel does not serve lunch or dinner, but you do have small kitchens in the rooms. We had an excellent stay--a great place for a jungle luxury experience at a good price.

Room Tip: We opted for A/C which was nice as it is humid and can get hot! All the rooms have a wonderful view.

I hate to be redundant, but also don't want to skip reviewing a place that has thought of everything. Not easy to pull off the 'luxury in the jungle' idea but this couple has done just that. Thomas is the most attentive host, and though I know he's fielded the same questions a thousand times about tours, places to see, things to do, he was always patient, friendly, and truly interested that we had the experiences we were looking for. He and Cindy are great at what they do.
Amazing breakfasts with fantastic service, impeccably clean and well appointed 'cabins', delightful setting. We loved having a coffee maker in the room and sitting on the private deck each morning watching the jungle come alive. We didn't think the fridge or the A/C were things we really needed but turned out they were great ammenities that helped us to feel totally pampered.
Our favorite stay :-)

We recently spent 3 night at Tiki Villas. I would be very hard pressed to come up with anything other than just Wow. Thomas and Cindy were the perfect hosts and we had an great time while staying there. Woken up by howler monkeys, then watching toucans at 1700.They also claim to host the fastest sloth in Costa Rica. You definatly need a 4x4 so pay attention to that and enjoy one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica. We had the unit that had no air conditioning and the way the cabins are built it was not needed for our stay, meanwhile the daytime temps were in the mid to high 30's. or for us Americans in the 90's. Thanks Thomas and Cindy
