 Situated on a 10-acre estate near the heart of Uvita, this fixer-upper hotel combines rustic charm with modern amenities. Located just minutes from Marino Ballena National Park, the property features a restaurant, 10 guest suites, and a private owner’s residence. This beautiful location, with its well-kept rustic architecture and manicured grounds, is an exceptional find for under a million dollars in the popular Costa Ballena tourist region.

The property showcases a love for wood and other natural materials, all sourced locally. The rustic design exudes warmth and offers an experience that reflects the lush surroundings. The blend of stone textures, the wood, and the nearby forest plants create a harmonious environment. The interplay of sunlight and breezes enhances this connection to nature, helping guests feel grounded and relaxed.

The Hotel offers ten spacious and airy guest suites with comfortable beds. The six lower-level suites have been recently renovated with new tiles, furniture, and bathrooms. Each 40-square-meter suite includes two full-sized beds, a full bathroom, air conditioning, and cable TV. The four upper-level rooms retain their original charm but are well-maintained and offer the same amenities.

The large, low-maintenance fiberglass pool is a standout feature, with an expansive deck area furnished with loungers and shade umbrellas, set amid tropical plants. Monkeys often swing by overhead, adding to the exotic experience. The shared guest area includes an outdoor-accessible bathroom and ample space for potential outdoor kitchen and BBQ installations.

Guest terraces offer stunning views of the gardens, with brightly colored butterflies and birds creating a lively backdrop. The property includes numerous storage facilities such as on-site laundry, a workshop, a pool house, gardening equipment storage, and two offices for business operations.

Owner’s Residence: The private owner’s residence, perfect for an owner/manager couple, is located at the rear of the property, away from guest areas. This two-bedroom, one-bathroom home features an outdoor kitchen with beautiful jungle views and the soothing sound of a nearby river. While it may need some updating, its proximity to the beach makes it a worthwhile investment for creating an exceptional living space.

Restaurant: The on-site restaurant has excellent visibility to tourist traffic in Uvita and is fully licensed to serve alcoholic beverages. The restaurant has great potential for growth with minimal advertising and could become a standout dining destination in this culinary-rich region.

Additional Features:

  • A short walk to Marino Ballena National Park, home to abundant wildlife including howler monkeys, capuchins, iguanas, and scarlet macaws.
  • The river, various fruit trees, and landscaped gardens enhance the natural beauty and attract wildlife.
  • Additional buildable areas with potential for expanding road frontage or other commercial opportunities.
  • A football field and parking for over 20 cars.
  • Easy access via the Costanera highway, eliminating the need for an off-road vehicle, and ensuring convenience for guests traveling to and from Uvita’s commercial amenities.

Investment Potential:

While the property may require some updates and a fresh vision, its unique charm and exceptional location offer tremendous potential. With the right owner, this property could become a highly sought-after destination in Costa Rica’s thriving tourist market. The positive guest reviews highlight its appeal and untapped potential.
