“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012 via mobile

On several occasions most recently in December I spent several days at El Caracol Azul in Punta Uva. Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. This is my favourite place on the Carribean and these cottages, for it is two cottages are my favourite place to stay. 
Easy access to a great swimming spot (and the Carribea in my opinion is better swimming than the Pacific) and lots of good exercise on a bicycle or walking. Eddie the caretaker is a great host.
All and all I have had nothing best the best time on four separate occasions.

We had a great time at the "El Caracol Azul" cabins. The two cabins are Caribbean style and rustic but very clean and comfortable. The beach is just through the garden gate and is absolutely beautiful - perfect for kids and adults alike - with gentle sloping sand into the water and lots of shade to sit under and enjoy the Caribbean breezes. There are lots of good restaurants nearby and a nice supermarket not very far away. Eddie, the manager, lives on site and is very helpful. We would certainly go again.

Stayed January 2012, travelled with family
