My Family stayed at Pura Vida Hotel the last two nights (July 17 & 18, 2014) before our extraordinary adventure in Costa Rica had to come to an end. Bernie and Nhi are some of the nicest folks you will meet. My son adored Bandit and playing catch with him, albeit a lime or banana skin!! The breakfast was a 3 course work of art (I wish I brought my camera to breakfast)! The grounds are incredibly well taken care of and absolutely beautiful!! And your assistance in getting us a taxi was very appreciated and wow, the cab arrived within a minute each time!! Our place was clean and we loved how it was decorated. Your offer to take us to the farmers market was very kind and next time we will take you up on it. Now my children are telling us that "every breakfast should include cakies!!" Those warm lemon poppy seed cakies were amazing, warm and moist on the inside and the perfect amount of crunchy chewiness on the outside!! And the best thing was when Bernie woke to meet us at 4:45am to see us off with Breakfast to go!! Fresh Fruit (pineapple, papaya, star fruit, kiwis, etc) yogurt & granola and juice. We can't thank you enough!
