“Beautiful rooms and excellent service!”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Stayed here for three nights and loved it! Hardwood floors, hammocks and the most beautiful view from the shower ever! One of our favorite hotels in Costa Rica! The people at the front desk were very helpful with planning excursions and transportation. I would recommend Pura Vida to anyone!

We came to Costa Rica with the intention of staying at Hotel Pura Vida for the first three nights and ended up staying for a week and a half. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very clean, comfortable, and beautiful. I cant believe how affordable this hotel is for what you get. This is a wonderful place to stay in Puerto Viejo!

This is the place to stay if you want some luxury on your budget trip, absolutly affordable. No dorms here but you get a nice doble for 24.$ The owners make you feel welcome and they are very helpful! Rooms were clean and big with beatiful bathrooms. Dont look any further, this is the place! Book ahead!
Want to recomend the chocolate tour to the "swiss couple" and a tour to the rescue center, good value! Enjoy!

Room Tip: The room next to the reception has internet. Also internet in the reception area.

This hotel was amazing!!! We stayed here at the start of our trip, and we have yet to find a better place. It was a very good value for the price and would recommend it to anyone. The owners made us feel at home!!
