Reviews for Hotel Cuna del Angel
My daughter, two granddaughters (ages 7 and 10) and I stayed here and had a wonderful times. Although this hotel was not on the beach, our rooms were on the beautiful, tropical grassy courtyard (pool in the middle) which made it easy to be close to the girls while they swam. (Note: this hotel is on a hill, you can see the ocean in the distance) We stayed here the last night of our vacation in Puntarenas and just needed to relax since we were on the go the entire week we were in Costa Rica. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rooms were similar to those in a fine European hotel. Restaurant food was delicious, although a little pricey. The girls really enjoyed the flaming desserts. (Note: earlier in the day, we took the wild truck ride up to the Nauyaca Waterfalls nearby--fun, but hold on tight!! We swam in the refreshing natural pools and enjoyed the beautiful natural setting).

We spent 10 amazing days in this beautiful hotel with great service, wonderful food at the restaurant and surrounded by lush green tropical vegetation, peace and quiet. Lovely holiday. Highly recommended.
In a generally expensive area, this is a very good deal. Restaurant is excellent and much of menu is listed as gluten free, which is unusual in CR. Very clean with wonderful staff, good A/C and comfortable beds - what's not to like?

Had we known that this hotel was right beside the main road (with trucks continually travelling through), was 9km away from the nearest town and 3km from the nearest beach we would have told our travel agent not to book it. A taxi cost between $10 and $15 each way but the local bus was only 1,200 colones per person each way, the problem being that the last bus left 5.30pm from Uvita. We wanted a lower room but found ourselves in a room which was accessed via 50 steep steps. However, the big issue was the restaurant. The hotel had been told that one of us had a severe allergy to egg yolk and even went through this aspect when we checked in. When we went down to dinner on the first night the first thing brought to the table was a dip accompanied by bread which had been made with egg. They offered a tortilla instead but this took 15 minutes to arrive. The main course was a seafood dish which was dominated by octopus to the detriment of the other seafood on the plate. The 10% service charge was mandatory and added to the bill. We would not have added this if we had the choice. We had the same problems with egg products at breakfast. Again we were offered an alternative in the shape of a tortilla which was so dry it crumbled when picked up. Despite reminding both the restaurant staff and reception of the allergy no effort was made to cater for it. This was in total contrast to every other hotel we stayed at during 3 weeks in Costa Rica. We ate out after the first night. This was cheaper even allowing for the taxi fare. The rooms are spacious and well appointed but neither the wash basin nor bath plugs worked. The pool area is very nice though it could do with having more sun loungers and umbrellas.

We were there only for a short stay but the staff and the restaurant were excellent. We are building a home in the area and this will be our home away from home during construction. Quiet and beautiful setting. The whole area is a fun place to visit Tom
