Great budget place in Uvita - definitely exceeded our expectations. The rooms are basic but very clean. But the community hang out space is amazing, with a great pool (and pool table, which we didn't use). They sold beers in the evening and free breakfast was pretty good. Wifi was strong, and it was an easy walk to nearby restaurants. You could pretty easily walk to the waterfall from here. We were a family of four, and it was one of my kids' favorite places in all of Costa Rica.
We are a family of 4 adults traveling on a budget, and as such our expectations try to match our budget (as the old adage goes: you get what you pay for). However, the Tucán Hotel in Uvita Costa Rica exceeded our expectations. It is clearly a newer establishment, with fresh paint and shiny floors, and like a newer business it has some growing pain to overcome. Yet, the design and layout of the hotel is practical and beautiful. The travelers safety and comfort were clearly in mind with all the rooms centrally located, under a large metal awning on either side of a small parlor flanked by the reception area to the right and dining area to the left. In the middle are two hammocks, a koi fish pond, and a bookshelf full of books in various languages. A gate which closes at 10 pm, denotes the establishments name: Tucan Hotel, and their lovey black and white logo, reminiscent of the Ying and Yang symbol. The pride the owners take in their establishment is evident in the attention paid to the smallest of details. The doors are weighted so that they softly swing shut if left open. The room came with AC at not additional cost, and there are power strips to accommodate a family like ours charging multiple devices at once. There is wifi, a laundry service, and a practical and delicious continental breakfast of fresh coffee, fruit, muffins, bread, m ham and slices of cheese is included. The urinates are individually kept in cloth sleeves, a nice detail. A lovely little hotel, at an affordable price which we highly recommend.…
It was a nice little hostel type hotel, but we had our own bedroom and our own bathroom. The staff was super friendly and very nice and attentive. The only downside to our experience was the lack of guests and environment, as we were hoping to meet new people around our age that were into the same things we were. The hotel in itself, was great! The pool was clean, the room was clean, they let us leave our stuff there when we wanted to go touristing, and the location was decently good, and safe. If you are looking for a calm, relaxing place to stay, I would definitely recommend it. The sushi was great too!
I travelled with my friend and we really enjoyed the communal area with the pool and the bar+ zone to chill out. The room was super clean and the food they serve is absolutely fantastic. I would recommend it definitely.
The staff was super helpful and friendly. I loved the idea of their hostel, open space with lots of options for chilling out outside your room. They made us feel very welcome and the restaurant was excellent. We will come back for sure. We highly recommend it.
Really neat place, recently renovated so everything is new and cute. Plenty of lounge area, nice place to work if you want to and a useful restaurant on the premises. the stuff was helpful and great and it is located close to the Uvita waterfall as well as close to shops and main road.
Great space, brilliant & comfy rooms & the staff are all super lovely - would def stay again. Waterfalls, butterfly house & river all within walking distance. Microbrewery & wine bar also just up the road.
We stayed at Toucan at the end of December. Staff is very friendly and supportive. The included breakfast is generous and local. Decoration is nice and the swimming pool welcome. Rooms are organized around the common area and might limit quietness until 10:00 pm. Overall very nice stay in this boutique hotel
After 4hours travel by bus from San Jose we arrived at Tucan Hotel, very quiet and fresh in the nature. The welcome was very warm and professional. Pierre, the boss is very smart and available at any time for and info. The rooms are confortable with airco and well decorated with a sense of nature, jungle and seventies.
Lovely hostel. Very colourful and relaxed. Felt safe and secure. Would definitely stay here again. 20 mins walk from waterfall and 40 mins from beach. We didn’t need any help or assistance from staff so can’t really comment on them.
