      What a beautiful view from the pool. I could have stayed for for a week. The walk down to the beach is about 15 mins, where there’s a good restaurant.

      Breathtaking & Quiet

      What a find! For $100 a night you get the best views, a pool you only have to share with 6 other units (in other words, we never shared the pool) and the most welcoming hosts. Only like 10 minutes away from Playa Del Coco, and close to a few great restaurants near by. The room was fresh with high ceilings. Beautiful individual patio with direct access to the pool. We didn’t have breakfast but it seemed like a great set up. We will be back.

      Mr Dishonest!

      Despite having been promised by the owner that we would get a refund as we had to leave early due to the corona virus we have been informed that we will get nothing back. The property is not easy to find or get into and is certainly not a 5 minute walk from the beach! Breakfast is vastly overpriced too! The in room coffee maker didn’t work and it took 24 hours to replace, this only happened because we asked the maid and she got one from another room. The WiFi was very intermittent and kept disconnecting. Fitness facilities? Spa? I’m guessing this alludes to the vibrating bed? Designated smoking area is on the road, mini bar over priced, no washer dryer in the room and no offer of the use of one. Terrace? Beach bar? I would certainly not stay here again and would advise others to think very carefully about booking here.

      The name of the hotel says it all

      The view matches the name of the hotel. Beat ifully maintained by Sandra and Florian. Access to the small parking area is up a steep hill. There is a bit more parking on the road. Great breakfast, we preferred the 'Organic'choice - recommended. Small pool perfect for morning swims. We stayed for three nights, exploring the area by car, and had our lunches and dinners en route. This strategy worked well for us as we were not interested in any nightlife.

      If you are looking to be close enough to tourist areas but also away then this is the place to be. We did rent a car and drove everywhere so it was perfect for us. When my partner and i vacation we always look for spots like Pura Vista. Flo was amazing, kind and helpful. We will stay here again if we were to come back. We fell in love with Costa Rica. Pura Vida baby!!!

      From the minute we walked in hours ahead of Check in Flo & Sandra made us right at home.Cant say enough about the amazing breakfast or the incredible view. The rooms have everything u need if not ask & they do their best to provide. A car is a good idea or just give lots of notice when u need a taxi but also walking distance to beach & 2 restaurants. Flo bent over backwards for us the entire 3 days.

      There isnt one bad thing i can say about this warming, welcoming, beautiful, secluded hotel. I loved this place begote arriving. Flo the owner started accommodating me as soon as i booked (3 wks prior to my stay). He secured my ride from the airport with Alex. Who was amazing! He took care of my boyfriend and i the entire stay by being available when we needed a ride or arranging his lovely daughter to trandport of, he infitmed us on some of the culture, the restaurants, stores, excursions, do's and don'ts, etc. I see why he and Flo do businesses together because they are a like-AMAZING!! The scenery and views of the ocean from the hotel is beautiful!! Wish i had stayed longer. Flo, is the owner, the cook (the breakfast was delish!), sometimes the maid, sometimes maintenance..he's awesome i cant express it enough! His entire family helped with accommodating us in some way. It made you feel like you were on a vacay visiting family-my boyfriend kept helping Flo clean the tables after breakfast bc he said Flo was the type of person that you just wanted to help bc he helped take care of everyone and everything else. I can go on and on about this hotel... JUST BOOK THIS HOTEL...you will be so happy you did!
