“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

I fell in love with this place 3 years ago and have gone back every year since. I have travelled the world in my life and this is simply my favourite place. It combines everything one could dream of, amazing location , very stylish decoration, outstanding food reasonably priced for the island, friendly and efficient service and the most amazing is you can simply ask for whatever makes your holiday so special and Pura vida will do it. Champagne on the beach at noon, it is a yes and with pata negra ham served on a bedside table. You forgot your towel for a swim, Pura vida lends you one. You want a breakfast at 10 they serve it, a kid lunch at noon no problems, a late stylish lunch at 5 not an issue, a great cocktail under the moon with amazing background music this is the place. The owners are so nice and have totally understood what it means to look after an international crowd. I celebrated my big 40 bday there in style, my 60 guest also fell in love with the place, so do not miss it you will not find this anywhere else, can' t think of one bad thing. Welldone.

“Not as good as it was!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

Music great (we went Monday which is flamenco but with a cool contemporary vibe) ambience and location great, but food very disappointing . Starter of lobster spring rolls, were tiny, tasteless and expensive. my main of lamb with lentils was not good. lamb tough and fatty and muddy looking- not a bit of greenery or colour on the plate. my friends main was turbot, and she she said it was 'miniscule' Took ages to get the main course too. Needs to get its food sorted. Won't go again unless we hear it is back up to par.

“Great kids corner”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Pura Vida offers a great kids corner on Friday's afternoons all summer where the children can play and take part to supervised activities. It allows the grown-ups to enjoy a relaxed lunch while the little ones are happily entertained with face painting and arts and crafts.
In addition the beach is really good for kids as there are plenty of pin trees offering shadow.
The restaurant is also an ideal place to get married.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Pura Vida is one of the best places I've ever seen. The beach is gorgeous and not crowded like other beautiful beaches on the island. You can sit down and enjoy your champagne on the big white lounge while you watching sunset!

Whether you like to surprise someone, or wants to marry at Pura Vida, email Alexandra. She is Amazing. She arranges everything for you!

Do not hesitate to bring your Children to this venue, your kids will love it!
