Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The Ecolodge was a highlight of our Costa Rica trip. Everything was as described or even better than the photos can show it. The house is furnished with great attention to detail and has everything you could wish for. In particular, the stylish kitchen is fully equipped and preparing food a pleasure. In addition, we enjoyed very much the environment (jungle, beaches, mangrove tour with Gerzan). Thanks for everything (including the helpful welcome pack and the fruit basket).

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Fantastic hideaway in the jungle. Be aware you really do need a 4x4. The roads are a bit daunting, but the lodge is worth it. The views are stunning and we had wildlife on our deck!

“wow, what can we say ?”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at the villa on the end of already was a beautiful trip to Costa Rica. But PuraVidaEcolodge made it even more remarkable. Very beautiful setting nearly on top of a hill. All that is written in the description on this website is true. Very, very nice.
Would recommend it to everyone but be sure you bring on arrival the necessary things for breakfast or drinks because the trip up and down the hill to the shop is beautiful but shaky..
.:-). Some very good restaurants in Ojochal (15 min drive from the villa), we tried Citrus and it was really good.

“Pura vida Paradise!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful villa, a family of two adults and two kids. The villa live up to all the promisses from the pictures and lots of more. It is well equipped with everything you need, and even yoga mats that we used every morning on the wonderful terrace with absolutely magical views. You will live in the middle of the forest surrounded by stunning scenery. We experienced the most fanatstic stary sky we have ever seen. Make sure you have a 4 w drive otherwise you wont be able to reach the villa. And the drive is a adventure by itself!! If you arrive after dark, be sure to make arrangements so that you will be met in Coronado by Gersan, who takes care of the house to Kika and Joe, he will guide you up the adventurous road. We went on the mangrovetour with Gersan and Illy. A delightful experience with stunning scenery and a wonderful day on a deserted beach. We highly recomend this tour, but for small children the 1,5 hour boattour at the river in the sun might be a bit to long. Kika and Joe has been very helpful and fast to replay in email. The welcomepack we received before we arrived was very helpful. We hope that the villa and its surroundings maintain its unique atmosphere and we are able to visit this unspoiled paradise again!
Lots of love Camilla Lars Seth and Sam
