Traveling has been pretty high in my priorities for a few years now so when I came across a flight deal for Costa Rica a couple of months out, I decided to purchase tickets spur of the moment. It was the best decision I have ever made. I went with my boyfriend and we literally had the best time of...

Welcoming from the time Lalo picked us up at Quepos airstrip, and jaw-dropping from the moment we walked up the stairs, Kura might well be our favourite hotel ever. Absolutely beautiful design, spectacular views, a pool you feel compelled to occupy, epic sunsets, rooms which are almost criminally underused since you never want to leave the main area, and unfailing...

Recently returned from honeymooning at Kura which we had spent around a year planning and dreaming of all the amazing photos/reviews on tripadvisor. In some ways I am reluctant to write this review telling the world how wonderful Kura is incase it results in being fully booked when we want to go again. Although I'd love to keep it secret,...

Only 6 rooms. Each room made of glass. Complete privacy. With a view that goes on forever. Large balcony with a hammock and two rather uncomfortable chairs. A fabulous pool that overlooks the view. Lie in bed and open the doors. The sound of the crickets and monkeys are all you can hear. The Toucans visit in the evening. Keep...

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at Kura for two nights - two nights we will never forget, for all the right reasons. From the attentive service and warm and friendly staff to the mesmerizing views, this place really is the definition of luxury. The staff familiarize themselves with all of your preferences, likes and dislikes from...

The place has flat out the most spectacular view I have ever seen in my entire life. I still remember drinking it in that last time before I left. When I tried to read my novel by the pool, I would have trouble paying attention to it because of the view. Watching eagles or hawks or whatever they were fighting...

Kura caters for the upscale vacationers who want to observe the Costa Rican nature but not necessarily be in it. Slightly 'wanna be' chic but it is certainly a good way to ease yourself into or out of a more immersive eco visit. Food is excellent coupled with highly attentive and excellent staff (particularly Adam). The only points that let...

This is our last of the 4 hotel we stayed in Costa Rica for our honeymoon. The design of the hotel is very modern and functional. We were wow by the view of the hotel and from our room. You must be there one day for the sunset. It is pretty special especially with the swimming pool. Adam the bartender...

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. After going on excursions with hiking and zip lining in the cloud forest and near the volcano, this was the perfect end to vacation. The entire staff was amazing. Cocktails to welcome us, amazing food that was reasonably priced (breakfast is complementary), unbeatable views, turndown service....
