You have missed a great place if you did not stay at Pura Vida Villa. Our accommodations was truly the "best of the best." No expense was spared on the home and absolutely has everything plus more to make your trip a wonderful experience.Everything we needed was near and easily accessible to town.

We had a group of 10 men stay in Pura Vida Villa and had more than enough room to spread out. The pool area is exceptional and the pictures do not do it justice. Views to the ocean were great and the beach was only a short walk away. There are a couple of hidden gems in the town of Playa del Coco which is only a short drive, and you are a quick boat ride to secluded beaches and great snorkeling.

The concierge and cleaning staff were all extremely courteous and I would recommend the villa to anyone traveling to this area of CR.

Beautiful and Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in Ocotal...our first visit to Costa Rica. Pura Vida Villa was perfect for our group of ten. Grandma and Grandpa used the apartment for our retreat while two sons, their wives and four kids ages 5-10 spread out in the main house. We were able to get some groceries and do a little light cooking for ourselves but had the housekeeper cook a wonderful Costa Rican meal for us on the last night. She was wonderful all during the week and kept our own laundry washed and folded without having to ask! This home has a wonderful pool but with the free access to both The Club at Coco Bay and the Beach Club at Coco Bay we had all the pool fun we needed. Love, love Father Rooster's Restaurant on the beach! We saw monkeys in the trees there and the black sand beach was beautiful. The management company was so helpful and friendly and they really wanted to make this vacation all that it could be for us. I would highly recommend Pura Vida Villa to anyone visiting Costa Rica.

Fantastic family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Staff was extremely helpful in assisting with wedding arrangements, suggestioning family oriented activities, recommending restaurants, and arranging the car rental. Overall the property was wonderful and ideal for a large family retreat! We can't say enough about the maid!! She was a delight!

Great Trip & Great Place

  • 5 of 5

First trip to this part of Costa Rica and our group was 11. Great location for family - we had 8 girls between 12-18. Great place to just hang out by the pool or take the 5-10 minute walk to the beach.

Place was great inside - plenty of room and everything you needed.

Cleaning crew was great and anytime we had a request, they responded right away.

Would definitely come back.

Luxury At Its Finest! Unreal!!

  • 5 of 5

It was not my first trip to Costa Rica, but this week stay was like no other. Pura Vida is Luxury at its finest!! Its amenities out do any of the "all-inclusive" stays I have done in the past - anywhere. You not only get access to the most impressive home, but you also get access to The Club at Coco Bay, and a Guest Only Beach Club with an infinity salt water pool overlooking Ocotal Beach!! Its outdoor entertainment area is outstanding. The views of the Pacific, The Papagayo Islands and Volcanos leave you breathless! A short walk down the hill brings you to the best Beach Bar and Restaurant I've ever encountered- Father Roosters. Great Food, Great Service, and they treat you like family!! Want to Shop, or interact with the locals?? Just run into town! Best local venders! Most speak some English. This is a safe place, and the Costa Ricans as a whole are so welcoming, accommodating and patient! With all of this, One wouldn't want to leave the area.... Ever! In fact, it was such a great stay, guests of mine plan to come back within the year to get married!! As for me... I will be back; No better place on Earth. Pura Vida is definitely a place to make lifelong memories!
